The Overlord’s Corner 2.0

Hello everyone, I’d like to start my first column back with an apology. For those of you who thought you’d seen the last of me…sorry, but you’ll NEVER see the end of me! The Overlord is FOREVER!!!


Well as you can plainly see, I’ve decided to bring the Corner back. However, this time around the content of the column will be quite different. I will save some room at the end of the column to talk about things in the industry if there’s anything on my mind, and of course everyone is welcome to send emails, which I’ll publish and respond to just as before.

Who’s Who in the DCU (12/09/04)

Even when he got his ring back he still wasn’t the same.

Outsiders #18 Review

I have been very hot and cold when it comes to the Outsiders. When I heard about it at first, it didn’t sound like a book I would be too interested in. But the buzz around it built, and I checked out a few issues. I was always a hug fan of Tom Raney, so I was hooked for a while. When I get it every month, it’s not something I’m terribly excited about though. Judd Winick writes a good story, and the art is always at the very least appealing, but I just can’t get hooked, no matter what.

Uncanny X-Men #453 Review

I first started reading comics when I was about nine or ten years old. I had an Uncle who was in the Merchant Navy, and a huge comics fan. He used to pick up the books on his travels aboard, and bring them home, storing them in a big, red, plastic box.

How about some Mutant X profiles?

How about I do a series on them after I’m finished with my AOA one. It will keep me busy.
