East Of West Vol. 2: We Are All One by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta (Writer) (graphic novel review).

‘There’s Horsemen on the plains, the sky’s red as blood, and only the blind can see a better end.’ East Of West Vol. 2: We Are All One Fate was always going to put ‘East Of West’ in my path. I devour post-apocalyptic stories with unholy glee and have done since I discovered the ‘Book […]

A.B.C. Warriors: The MEK Files 01 by Pat Mills and a variety of artists (graphic novel).

In many respects, the ‘A.B.C. Warriors’ was created on the success of ‘Ro-Busters’ that featured the sarcastic Ro-Jaws and his partner Hammerstein (which is having another release in November). Rather than dwell on that partnership, this series targeted Hammerstein when he was a sergeant in military life and capitalise on the mega-violence of when robots […]

Alice In Comicland by Craig Yoe (book review).

Now here’s a surprising book. The variants of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ as depicted in comics. Often satirised but a lot of the time it’s playing with the story elements and connecting them to the lead character of an existing series. Craig Yoe’s book contains complete stories NOT sample pages and even better, much […]

Celeste by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

‘Celeste’ is a graphic novel by I.N.J. Culbard whose graphics I have enjoyed on the ‘Brass Sun: The Wheel Of Worlds’ mini-series. His art is equally good on ‘Celeste’ and he has more space here to indulge in slow-paced storytelling which he does to good effect. There’s a very cinematic opening few pages in which […]
