Rough Stuff #8 Spring 2008 (magazine review).

I’ve been eyeing this issue of ‘Rough Stuff’ for sometime mostly because of the great cover of the Scarlet Witch and Ms. Marvel. Getting it up close and its easier to spot the Wasp there as well. Sometimes, small digital doesn’t do a picture justice. Even more surprising inside the magazine shows artist Mike Mayhew […]

It’s All In The Viewing Figures: a brief article by: GF Willmetts.

It was reported in British newspapers that the ‘Doctor Who’ story from 19 January 2020, ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror’, had the lowest recorded viewing figures of 4 million people. This was attributed by the BBC to its subject matter and ‘relevancy’ issues. I’m less sure about that and I don’t think it’s necessarily a […]

Gundam: real-scale walking mecha to become major Japanese tourist attraction (news).

If you like your Japanese mecha big, as in Gundam-size, then you’re in luck! The City of Yokohama in Japan is opening a tourist attraction which is basically a full-size Gundam base with a real-scale moving Gundam the same size as a NASA rocket launch gantry. They’re planning to open the site – called Gundam […]

Superman & Lois TV series coming (news).

There’s a new Superman & Lois TV coming down the pipes for a landing at the CW, according to the industry press. I liked the original show – haven’t watched too much of the DC stuff on CW, apart from the odd episode of Arrow, so not too sure what to make of this? Read […]

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count): Episode 4: Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror by Nina Metivier (TV review).

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count): Episode 4: Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror by Nina Metivier (TV review).

With a name like ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror’, you know this has to be a historical setting and the feud between Tesla (actor Goran Visnjic) and Thomas Edison (actor Robert Glenister) is rampant. Please, not another alien menace. Science Fiction doesn’t depend on an alien menace, just the presence of time travellers is enough […]

Modern Masters Volume Twelve: Michael Golden (book review).

Back in the day, I first got sight of Michael Golden’s artwork when he appeared at Marvel doing the first 12 issues of ‘The Micronauts’ in 1979. Stylish, expressive and action-packed. Who cared it was based on a toyline, more so as the key characters weren’t toys. From a Marvel perspective, we were used to […]

Black Widow (Marvel superhero film: second trailer).

Here’s the next trailer for the Black Widow superhero film, in which Black Widow goes back to Russia to confront her family and the products of the Widow Agent programme – kind of like Treadstone for Russian super-assassins – with a little extra humour from Red Guardian (the Soviet’s Captain America analogue).
