Are Marvel & DC Becoming Comic Book Side Dishes?

By | February 12, 2016

Within the last year or so a lot of food analogies have been used to describe what’s going on in the comic book world. Pizzas smashing together was the analogy used to explain Marvel’s 2015 summer event called Secret Wars. DC’s new direction for 2016 is being described as a meat and potatoes approach to… Read More »

In anticipation of Marvel’s summer blockbuster event, Secret Wars, during which the Marvel 616 Universe and the Ultimate Universe are to be merged creating an All-New Marvel Universe; I read the two Secret Wars mini-series that came before, Secret Wars One and Two.
