I’m putting myself out there on this one. As they say on the street, you either go big or you go home.
There comes a time in any genre where a particular talent stands out from the rest of the pack. It could be for any number of reasons or simply because of one mitigating factor. Personal opinion comes into play as the exploits of this individual just speaks to you, even if they don’t to anyone else. This person also reinvigorates your excitement for the genre to the point where you’ve become a fan again for the first time. I’m talking about professional wrestling, and the wrestler I’m referring to is Dean Ambrose and I believe that he will be the future of the business.
I thoroughly enjoyed Star Trek Into Darkness from beginning to end and left the theater wanting more. The cast did a much better job of fulfilling their roles this time around. The relationship between Kirk and Spock is the vehicle that drives the story on its plotted course. They trust each other with their lives, but they still have some kinks to work out which is fun to watch unfold, but frustrating at the same time, especially from Spock’s perspective.

Cyborg 009: Chapter 000 | Writers: F.J. DeSanto and Bradley Cramp | Art: Marcus To and Ian Herring | Cover: Marcus To and Ian Herring | Publisher: Archaia Entertainment | Price: $1.00 | From my column at Forces of Geek.com
This is a spectacular piece of comic book literature that is truly a privilege to read.
A young man, now known only as “009,” has been cybernetically altered against his will and fights to break free from a secret society who transformed him. This is a re-imagining of Shotaro Ishinomori’s manga classic that does everything right.
The opening glimpse into 009’s life before the robotics immediately makes you sympathize with him even though you don’t know the whole story. Marcus To and Ian Herring depict the heart wrenching scene that puts it over the top.
Romance, violence, mystery, and action are all impeccably woven together in superb fashion. Even though this is just a preview of the full length graphic novel scheduled for a summer 2013 release, this is one book you don’t want to miss.
Plus, the price tag is pretty nice too.
