Comicscape: Iron Man Now! by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Critic
(May 02, 2013)
In my first Comicscape column I posited that 15 years ago no one would have guessed Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, would be the crux of the Marvel comic and cinematic universes. Iron Man was going to lead the way to a wonderous land of prosperity where we will

Comicscape: Savage Wolverine by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(January 23, 2013)
If you were to poll the general comic book character loving populace (Read: Not just comic readers), on who their favorite comic book character is, I would put dollars to adamantium filled doughnuts that Wolverine would come out on top. Yep, more than Supe

Comicscape: JinnRise by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(January 16, 2013)
Full disclosure- I know the creators behind JinnRise. When I found out they scored a publishing deal with IDW I immediately thought about how I would go about writing a column for their new book. Obviously there’s quite a conflict of interest, and the ri

Comicscape: Deathmatch by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(January 10, 2013)
I would love to do some real research on why battle royale type comics have all of a sudden taken hold of the Wednesday populace. AvX, Avengers Arena, America’s got Powers… comics aren’t just for paper cuts anymore, they’re a full on bloodsport.

Comicscape: The Best Books of 2012 by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(January 03, 2013)
I'll tell you right of the bat- the word "Best" is just to get your attention. What you'll find below is really my personal favorites of 2012. Feel free to disagree, but do it with style. 2012 was a helluva year for comics, and I am honored to have been ab

Comicscape: Amazing Spider-Man #700 by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(December 28, 2012)
A few months ago I wrote about the state of Amazing Spider-Man. The book was in the middle of an interesting arc called Alpha, in which Peter Parker must deal with a new super hero with unlimited power that he accidentally created.

Comicscape: Fantastic Four NOW! by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(December 12, 2012)
The Fantastic Four have been a hard sell for awhile now. Every blip they make on the radar seems to fade fast, and they quickly return to the status quo. This has always seemed to bug the editors at Marvel, and it should. The FF have been touted as comic b

Comicscape: Masks by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(December 05, 2012)
We've talked a lot in this column about the big superhero teams and their myriad of exploits. When their adventures get long in the tooth there's always a reboot or a refresh just around the corner to restore the team's minty freshness. That's not a knock,

Comicscape: Image Comics Sci-Fi Quartet by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(November 28, 2012)
It has been a very good year for Sci-Fi comics. There have been more new and original science fiction themed books on the shelves than any year I can remember. From the brave new world of ideas that is Brian K Vaughan’s Saga, to the desolate tech landsca

Comicscape: Marvel NOW! by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Critic
(November 22, 2012)
On this week of Thanksgiving, one comic book publisher is giving us a cornucopia of books to sate our pilgrim appetites. Marvel Comics is now firing on all cylinders with their universe refocusing known as Marvel NOW! Many of their major titles have hit th

Comicscape: Moloch #1 by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(November 14, 2012)
We're now very deep into the Before Watchmen experiment, in fact, the end draws neigh. There was a lot of talk questioning whether or not these books should even exist. Many Maniacs expressed their adamant refusal to even give the books a chance in our com

Comicscape: Deadpool NOW! by Joel Rickenbach, Columnist and Comic Geek
(November 07, 2012)
What a long, strange trip it’s been. Deadpool has been the unlikeliest of successes for Marvel over the past 20 years. A character that was once just a bit of a goof on DC’s Deathstroke (Slade Wilson, Wade Wilson… get it?) has become one of Marvel’
