November 21 / / Comics

We’re all used to time travel stories by now – disrupting the space-time continuum, changing the course of history, undoing past mistakes, yada yada yada. Well the creators of Chrononauts from Image Comics, Mark Millar and Sean Murphy, realize that and still manage to give us a really fun story.

Chrononauts revolves around two best friends Corbin and Danny, genius rockstar scientists that discover time travel and decide to televise historic events around the world, only to go time traveling themselves and screw up everything along the way. If this sounds a bit ridiculous and Hollywood-y, it is, and it’s supposed to be.

A while back, I wrote a review about Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service which he adapted from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon’s six issue comic called Secret Service. My recommendation was a glowing one and today I’m revisiting my review to discuss the source material. Unfortutely, it took me some time after I posted my review to get a hold of this comic, but I finally was able to read this on a single train ride home. Let’s begin.

April 14 / / Movies

Being a dad, I don’t have the luxury to see movies on a regular basis. I can count the number of flicks I sat through at the theater on one hand in the last year since my son was born. But one movie that I was lucky to check out recently was Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service based on the comic series called The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.
