Marvel Studios has certainly accomplished many feats that had been called impossible (or at least highly unlikely) in the short time since they started building the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It has only been a few years but people seem to have already forgotten what a huge achievement bringing several characters from separate movies together for a team up was. The mere fact that Thor and Iron Man are now household names is incredible to me. However, when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy this is without a doubt their riskiest step yet, because although Iron Man may not have been a common name when his film was made, nobody outside of the comic book community has ever heard of Guardians of the Galaxy and it is so different from every film they’ve made so far that the average movie goer has no idea it’s even a Marvel film. Well, after seeing the movie I am happy to say that this was a gamble that paid off, big time.

Gahl Buslov here! I’m one of the buyers for Midtown Comics, and I’ve got something I want to share with you.
I got a call from a publisher the other day, asking me if I would review an upcoming book for them, and if I liked it, and was so inclined, to then tell the world about it. Not an unusual request, but the source of the request was: Marvel! They wanted me to come down to the offices and review their new ongoing Nova series, by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness. And it had to be done at the Marvel office, to ensure nothing was leaked. So that’s exactly what I did Thursday morning. Click through to read more! Spoilers will be clearly marked.

HELLLLOOO MIDTOWN BLOG-OMANIAC! Raph here, and I’m going to talk about something that escapes people’s attention sometimes, sci-fi comics!
I love science fiction, and I think people may forget that superhero comics are science fiction comics. Superman is an alien, Batman and Iron Man have expensive gadgets, and the X-Men are genetically enhanced. There’s a certain magic and mythology to superheroes, but there is also a rational and scientific explanation for most of what goes on in comics (I still don’t know where Beppo the Super Monkey comes from). So to celebrate, here are 5 sci-fi comics you should be reading!
