Jessica Jones Netflix

Marvel and Netflix’s first project together, Daredevil, has received a whole lot of love from fans. With a darker tone and plenty of time to flesh out its characters, Daredevil left many comic book fans anxiously waiting for the second season of the man without fear’s show. However, before the agile hero returns for new episodes, another Marvel character is stepping into the spotlight: Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). Now that some of the Midtown Comics Times Square employees had the weekend to watch some – or all – of Jessica Jones, it’s time to share their thoughts on Marvel’s second Netflix show! Spoiler alert: We all think it’s really, really good.

Martian Manhunter cover

Article by Gregg Katzman

Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. The Flash. Those are just a few of the names that immediately come to mind when people talk about the DC universe. Despite appearing in comics since 1955 and being absurdly powerful, J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter, has never reached the same level of popularity as his heroic peers. He doesn’t have a movie on the way, either (or at least one hasn’t been announced yet…). Despite not being a household name, DC is giving the martian another chance to step into the spotlight in his very own series. The Earth is once again at risk (when is it not in the DCU?), but don’t let that familiar story element fool you because Martian Manhunter is one of the most entertaining and gripping titles DC is currently publishing. A good comic book should never fly under the radar, so we want to help spread the word about this great story!

The Walking Dead Rick Carl Grimes comic

Article by Gregg Katzman

The latest episode of The Walking Dead, ‘Heads Up’, set the stage for season 6’s midseason finale while also answering whether or not Glenn was still alive. Towards the end of the episode, there’s a bit of hope on the horizon, and that’s something the residents of Alexandria desperately need. But it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead without having a moment of optimism completely destroyed by something terrible, would it? We’re all speculating about what’ll happen next (especially with the Wolf…), but one huge moment from the comic was heavily teased. If you haven’t read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series (fix that mistake asap, please), this would be a great time for you to back out this article. Unless you don’t mind a possible spoiler, that is. Seriously, consider yourself warned: there’s SPOILERS AHEAD!
