The Complete Nemesis The Warlock Volume 1 – Books 1-4 by Pat Mills, Kevin O’Neill, Jesus Redondo and Bryan Talbot	 (book review).

Stan Lee… with great power comes great responsibility.

Stan Lee is one of the greatest pensioners the planet – or at least, the geek planet – has ever known. He really doesn’t need to prove it to us, but he keeps on insisting on trying. Take for example the young teenager Bowe Cleveland, another victim of the school shootings that seem to permeate […]
