It’s double the fun as the X-men from the future and the past get together to tag-team the sentinel program, as run by that guy from Game of Thrones.

Prince Of Stories: The Many Worlds Of Neil Gaiman by Hank Wagner, Christopher Golden and Stephen R. Bissette (book review).

Neil Gaiman is one of the most popular writers of weird fiction today, with a prolific range that includes comics, novels, TV show episodes and even Hollywood movies. He’s one of the few writers who became famous off the back of genre fiction (specifically, the ‘Sandman’ series of comics) but worked his way into the […]

Fashion Beast by Alan Moore, Malcolm McLaren and Anthony Johnston (graphic novel review).

There’s every chance, though I haven’t verified it, that the late Malcolm McLaren loved the sample-heavy, scattergun mentality of the band Pop Will Eat Itself. Of all the perceptive things that PWEI said, their statement, ‘Alan Moore knows the score’, is as relevant today as it was when it appeared as a lyric on ‘Can […]

Mercy Thompson: Homecoming by Patricia Briggs, David Lawrence, Francis Tsai and Amelia Woo (book review).

‘Homecoming’ is a graphic novel that runs alongside the ‘Mercy Thompson’ series of books by Patricia Briggs. In fact, it runs slightly prior to the first book in the series. This graphic novel tells the story of Mercy Thompson, a walker who can shape-shift into a coyote and how she came to be working in […]

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox composed by Frederik Weidmann (CD review).

Composer Freddie Weidmann seems to have cornered the market with composing the music for the DC Universe animated series, some of which like the ones for ‘Green Lantern’ I’ve reviewed here before. This time, he’s created the music for the ‘Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox’ animated film. The plot of which is that the Flash […]

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. an examination of the first episode by: GF Willmetts (article).

**NB:There might be spoilers or suspicions so watch the episode before reading on.** It’s very weird watching Marvel’s own brand hitting the TV market. Part of me thinks it’s well overdue, although if they plan to dominate the TV channels, I hope they’ll do it on a series by series basis or they could exhaust […]

Woodwork: Wallace Wood 1927-1981 by Florentino Flórez (book review).

I should point out from the start that this unique large heavy book is also bilingual. ‘Woodwork: Wallace Wood 1927-1981’ is based from a museum presentation in Italy of the late comicbook artist’s work in 2011 and written by Florentino Flórez. As such the text, divided into columns, is both in Italian and translated into […]

Silver Star by Jack Kirby (graphic novel review).

Jack Kirby’s ‘Silver Star’ was, I believe, his last work in the field of comics. The six twenty page issues are collected in this hardback volume along with covers and some other paraphernalia. There’s an introduction by David Scroggy, who was editorial director at Pacific Comics, the company which put out the original material. It […]
