Daemos Rising by David J. Howe (book review).

In the world of ‘Doctor Who’, the story of ‘The Daemons’ in the 1970s must have ticked every box for anti-filth campaigner Mary Whitehouse on what to not show children. It’s almost on par with ‘The Wicker Man’ and shown on a Saturday tea time. ‘Daemos Rising’ is a sequel to the story which was […]

The Aeronauts (film review by Mark Kermode and Felicity Jones interview).

Here’s the review of the film, The Aeronauts, by our man-of-many-movies, Mark Kermode, as well as an interview with Felicity Jones. This flick looks kind of steampunky, even though it’s a historical adventure – stick on a pair of brass goggles and it could have leapt straight out of the pages of one of Stephen […]

Here’s the second trailer for the Netflix TV series, The Witcher, based on the fantasy books of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski.

The Predator (2018) (DVD film review).

I recently pulled ‘The Predator’ DVD. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect and couldn’t avoid the bad press it was getting. After the 2010 ‘Predators’ film, it was becoming obvious that they were pulling away from Earth but were they running out of places to go with the hunters. Director Shane Black co-wrote with […]

Pandarve: The Worlds Of Don Lawrence (book review).

When the Book Palace did their Illustrators Special on Don Lawrence (1928-2003) this year, I was curious to see what else was available. Like with ‘Pandarve: The Worlds Of Don Lawrence’, they are mostly expensive limited edition and from the Netherlands and hence in Dutch. This one is probably one of the cheapest. The problem […]

Long before the X-Men became ‘All-New, All-Different’, back in the 1960s, ‘The Uncanny X-Men’ were on the verge of cancellation through lack of sales. Comicbook artist Neal Adams wanting to come over to Marvel Comics from DC Comics did not want to take on a best-selling title but one that wasn’t. The X-Men was then […]
