The Wolverine… still looking mean.

And another new poster for The Wolverine movie. He doesn’t look happy. And I get the feeling he’s going to share the pain real soon.

Alter-Ego No. 115 March 2013 (magazine review).

For those who don’t know, ‘Alter Ego’ is comic writer Roy Thomas’ magazine that examines various aspects of the early comicbook industry. The appeal of this mag must surely appeal to readers of my age in their 50s but if you’re younger and really want to understand the history of your favourite hobby, than these […]

The Complete Nemesis The Warlock Volume 2: Books 5-7 by Pat Mills, Kevin O’Neill, Bryan Talbot, John Hicklenton and Tony Luke	(graphic novel review)

In some respects, things are getting bad for Nemesis The Warlock in these ‘Complete Volumes’. Ten years down the line, he is slightly enchanted and engaged to Magna, unaware of her involvement in his wife’s death. I think this fact, unless a story was omitted, is as surprise to the reader as well and I […]

Modesty Blaise: The Girl In The Iron Mask by Peter O’Donnell and Enric Badia Romero	(graphic novel review).

It’s spring and time for the best pick-me-up tonic in reading as Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin are back in three more tales. Enric Badia Romero’s art is as good as ever and Peter O’Donnell writes to his strengths. I must disagree with Laurence Blackmore’s introduction where he declares Sir Gerald Tarrant as being the […]

Indigo Prime: Anthropocalypse by John Smith, Lee Carter and Edmund Bagwell	(comic-book review).

‘Indigo Prime’ is essentially a collection of three stories from ‘2000AD’, built up from work writer John Smith did back in 1991 and returned to here in 2008, so I’m running kind of blind to what happened then as I missed those stories. Can I work it out solely from this graphic novel? In the […]

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

And the Infographic of the day is this Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down. Of course, Peter Parker could never outspend Bats when it comes to the folding green stuff, but is Bruce Wayne happy, I ask myself? All that misery and speaking in a growly voice. I’d rather be a hip young teenager with a […]

Chrono Mechanics… Potholes in the Cosmic Road?

Comic-book genius Art Thibert has been beavering away in the comics industry for the usual suspects such as Marvel and DC, but he’s now doing a science fiction-themed creator-owned project with some really great looking art called Chrono Mechanics. There’s a Kickstarter for it here… and, as you’d expect, it’s now collected its target loot, […]

Crossed: Volume 4: Badlands by Garth Ennis, Jacen Burrows, Jamie Delano and Leandro Rizzo (graphic novel review).

‘Crossed: Volume 4: Badlands’ follows three previous collections of the ‘Crossed’ comics dating back to 2008. This is an ultra-violent, post-apocalyptic story set on Earth in the present day. Civilisation has been destroyed by the ‘Crossed’ virus, so-called because infection causes a large red cross to appear on your face. Infected individuals lose all inhibitions […]
