The Old vs The New – A Review of American Gods

By Jarrett Heale for TheComicBookDen.ca

American Gods is the comic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. It’s a tale of old gods at war with new gods, and considering I like the author and I know it is successful in all it’s forms, I was happy to have the opportunity to review this book thanks to Penguin Random House.

Predator: Hunters Review

By Matt Larose for TheComicBookDen.ca

“There’s something out there hunting us and it ain’t no man…….We’re all gonna die”. This was quite possibly the best quote that I could use from the original movie to describe exactly what this book was about for me.

TMNT/Ghostbusters 2 Review

By Matt Larose for TheComicBookDen.ca

Ghosts and villains are terrorizing the world through multiple dimensions, who do you call?! The Ghostbusturtles!………..ok I’m guessing you’re not familiar with this term because you haven’t read this book, well then I guess I’ll use them by their real names, you call the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters. So if I was working at IDW and had the rights to almost all the best 80’s cartoon properties what would I do with two of them? Cross them over of course which leads me to today’s review. Here comes IDW with it’s second installment of this fantastic crossover, being a fan of the first chapter I had high hopes going into this read.
