The Ballad Of Halo Jones by Alan Moore and Ian Gibson (graphic novel review).

‘The Ballad Of Halo Jones’ is a rather oddball in the ‘2000AD’ comic-book cannon. It’s not overtly violent in the opening two books in this volume and the lead character is an ordinary girl in the future. Still, this is Alan Moore and, at that time in the mid-80s, if he wrote a story based […]

Jupiter 40: XL Mneme (magazine review).

I can’t believe ‘Jupiter Magazine’ has now reached 40. Time passes so quickly and it doesn’t seem long since it was a teenager. However, with maturity, it gets better and better and in this issue there are plenty of good stories for you to read. Author David Conyers is also an artist and he provides […]

Titanium Rain by Josh Fiuney and Kat Rocha (CD review).
