Because Superman had nothing better to do, he's back to hock more Tandy computer products with the Whiz Kids. Linkara delves into the latest adventures of the Whiz Shills that features not only Superman, but Supergirl ...
Linkara kicks off the new year with some football. But since he's early for the Super Bowl, he decides to look at some SuperPro. It's been a while since he's visited this series, and there are plenty of good reasons why. This issue features our helmeted, padded jock hero going after an evildoer who sells steroids to athletes.
Well, blow me down. Linkara finally gets to talk about everybody's favorite spinach-eating super sailor, courtesy of his Patreon mateys. This story chronicles Popeye's life from birth on board a ship at sea, his Pappy shipping out on him, and the young man growing up on an all-spinach diet and developing a keen knack for fighting. This provides techniques for both survival and wacky hijinks.
The first PSA Hell of 2016 is a short comic for OnStar, starring the Caped Crusader. The Commissioner has been kidnapped by the Riddler, and in order to locate him and bring that crazy conundrum king to justice, Batman will need a little help from a commercial car security service. Hopefully he didn't buy it with a Bat Credit Card.
Linkara returns to the Kingdom of Monsters, even though it's still yet to be established. So while the monsters are still wreaking havoc on three continents, the comic decides to focus on a pair of freaky twin girls, more asshole children, and cultural satire for the brain-dead.
A few minutes ago in an apartment a good distance away...Linkara has returned to the comic franchise of The Star Wars, with the third issue. Little does Linkara know that this is the issue where things finally start to take shape, resembling the movie whose source material originated from this story. Roles may be reversed and 1 character may become 3, but it is indeed one with the Force of Others.
More wacky, inconsistent and overcrowded fun with Rob Liefeld's shameful excuse for a comic series. Today, Linkara looks at issue #8,000 where our poorly-drawn heroes fighting equally poorly-drawn foes in positions no human acrobat could imitate, and we get some poorly timed backstory. Oh, and Spawn is here too for some reason.
After 10 agonizing issues, All-Star Crazy Steve and Dick Grayson Age 12 finally comes to a close. So how does this harrowing saga of murder, kidnapping, child endangerment, misogyny, sex, scandals, perversion, and time jumps that would make all 13 Doctors crap themselves end? Batman and Robin are pushed aside to make way for a vulgar Batgirl story.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his all-time favorite Anime franchise, which is Pokémon for the few people who don't know, Linkara takes a look at--what else? A Pokémon comic. After an exhaustive search for a decent enough book, he settles on Pokémon Adventures.
Go Go Patreon Sponsors. Linkara's generous masters have requested he review the first five episodes of a Super Sentai known as Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. More Japanese Power Rangers. But he's happy to do it, because Linkara is secretly a Power Rangers fan. Not many people know this, but he does enjoy that franchise.
Linkara begins his month-long retrospective of the unsung Blue Beetle. Linkara begins by lecturing on BB's secret origins, in which he was a rip-off of The Green Hornet. Since then, his costume and character both evolved, he got himself an obligatory kid sidekick, a Beetlemobile, and an arsenal of nonsensical super powers. Among the highlights detailed in this saga is Garrett going off to fight the Nazis, and learning a devilish secret about Hitler.
As the month of March draws to a close, so does Linkara's retrospective on the history of the Blue Beetle. And what better way to end than to cover the character's tenure in DC Comic's reboot saga Linkara hates with every fiber of his being: The New 52.
Star Trek has lived long and prospered for 50 years, and being such a big Trekkie, Linkara honors the Enterprise's golden anniversary with a review of a comic that dared to bring the doctors of all five Star Trek series together for their own scientifically illogical space adventure. Can you say comic malpractice?
Linkara is forced once again to look at a good comic. Why? Because he isn't one to bite the hand that feeds his bank account. The comic de jour is Blackest Night. He looks at not one, but 8 issues surrounding life, death, resurrection, and everything in between.
Show him the money, he'll show you the comic (provided you've followed the proper channels, that is). It's another Patreon sponsored review for Linkara today as he digs into Dart #1, a mean-spirited comic about a sexy superhero and a greedy toy company. Plenty of grammar errors and Liefeld-worthy artwork make this a blunder to behold.
Linkara reads the third part of "Leaves of Grass" in which Batman battles the Floronic Man while fending off Poison Ivy's toxic advances, while Tim Drake gives us a lecture on the history of marijuana and its many good uses. And to think, the pages of this comic could've been better used as hemp.
By popular demand (from 1 person), Linkara reviews a JRPG. It involves a fiendish plot to usurp the throne from Her Majesty, and the only ones fit to stop the forces of evil are two siblings turned lovers and the most likable character is the would-be villain. Yep, it's one of THOSE games.
Linkara looks at issue 3 in the Ultimate Power universe, by Greg Land, who is literally retracing his steps. In this issue, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and a couple facsimiles set out to stop a bio-mass from engulfing the eastern seaboard.
Linkara continues his celebration of Star Trek's golden anniversary with issue #3 of The Next Generation comic series. It's an intergalactic battle of morals, plot holes and creative differences. Not to mention it prominently features one of the many banes of Linkara's existence: Q.
Break out the fruit pies, it's time for another Comic Book Quickies. So, what little slices of pie does Linkara have to stomach this time? Spider-Man has to stop Printout-Man from not only causing a run on the bank, but from hoarding the city's supply of Hostess Cupcakes, a Beast Wars mini-comic with Megatron and Optimus Primal going toe to toe, a commercial comic on the dangers of "Spiromania", and Captain America teams up with Colgate Junior to stop Count Plaqula.
For the 100th, it was a cartoon hedgehog in an unreal world. For the 200th, it was Spidey selling his soul in a story that is the bane of Linkara's existence. For the 300th, it was the worst piece of literature Frank Miller ever contributed to. Now, for #400, Linkara will review - a musical comic, as in a comic based off a terrible musical. It's a tuneful review with musical numbers and a ballad of guest stars.
With Batman vs. Superman and Captain America vs. Iron Man playing out all over theater screens, Linkara decides to look back at the time Superman was pitted against Spider-Man. Marvel and DC's first crossover event. And as Linkara discovers, this little crossover battle is different from those that would come after it, because it's done exceptionally well. It doesn't just pull punches, because every punch has a purpose.
Linkara schools a disastrous Titans/Young Justice trilogy that was supposed to be the grand finale of both series (at the time). But these young crime-fighters go out with anything but a bang, because when you don't show the proper respect for continuity and previously developed characters, then you have the recipe for one sucktacular comic, and this is only Part 1. Linkara must brace himself for the incomprehensible spores of madness that await him in the next two issues.
Linkara finally closes out this trilogy of terror that is Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day. It's pompous and circumstantial pandemonium as the gang engage in battle with an evil Superman robot which results in pointless deaths of significant characters. Graduation? Nope, this series needs to go to summer school.
Linkara reviews a comic from his favorite Star Trek series, Deep Space Nine. In this adventure, the team tries to control an outbreak of some experimental scientific mold that tries to take over the ship, all while trying to keep up with the Cardassians.
Always willing to try new things, especially when his Patreon sponsors demand it, Linkara decides to look at something he's never reviewed in all the 400+ episodes of his show: an audio drama. That's right, taking a break from printed media, Linkara reviews one of audio: a story in the Doctor Who-verse featuring a conflict between two nations, and a world where science is outlawed and magic is revered.
Ten-four, good buddy, Linkara's hauling a load with issue 6 of our favorite comic book truck driver, US-1. Each book has gotten weirder and weirder, and this one is no exception as our heroic trucker swoops in to help the owners of a local truck stop, who are behind on their mortgage payments. Being the all-American good guy he is, Ulysses won't let a greedy banker or a violent biker gang stand in his way of righting wrongs.
Stardate 8106: Linkara reviews the very first comic book adaptation of Star Trek: Voyager. Though not as exciting as the series, the comic does share one very important aspect with it: they take full advantage of the "fiction" in 'science fiction.'
"A Reluctant Escort" is an apropos title for the first chapter of Unsounded, as Linkara is reluctant to escort his viewers through this web comic. However, this journey is mandated by the Kingdom of Patreon, to whom Linkara has pledged his loyalty. Unsounded tells the tale of an obnoxious young princess and her reluctant zombie escort have to avoid many treacherous and deadly obstacles - mainly each other.
Patreon's wish is Linkara's command. This week's outing is an odd sci-fi comic about a classic, seldom-known comic character called James Bigglesworth, or Biggles for short. In this adventure, the brazen pilot has to solve the mystery of a space station that seemingly launched itself and is threatening to nuke the entire world.
The world's greatest detective in the world's worst movie made for an unsavory combination, but, of course, there had to be a comic adaptation. So, Linkara digs into the comic version of Batman and Robin, to compare and contrast with the ludicrous film. And, of course, you-know-who shows up to do the mandatory Bat Credit Card freak-out...but Linkara's one step ahead to nip that old meme in the bud.
Because Superman had nothing better to do, he's back to hock more Tandy computer products with the Whiz Kids. Linkara delves into the latest adventures of the Whiz Shills that features not only Superman, but Supergirl as well, helping to push the latest state-of-the-art, groundbreaking technology 1981 had to offer.
