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 […]

Shakara: The Destroyer by Robbie Morrison and Robbie Flint (graphic novel review).

Cosmic, man! But confusing, too, for the uninitiated so it’s worth going over the back story, which is revealed half-way through the first yarn here, ‘The Destroyer’. That makes this a bit of a spoiler. Sorry. The Shakara, a spindly looking bunch of aliens, were a very warlike race, always killing each other. Then there […]

Savage 2: The Gov’nor by Pat Mills and Patrick Goodard (graphic novel review).

A graphic novel collection set in ‘another Britain’, neat shorthand for an alternative historical milieu, ‘Savage’ is the story of Bill Savage. He was a lorry driver, until his family was killed when the Volgans invaded Britain in 1999. Now he is a leader in the Resistance and has a cover identity as Bill Carter, […]

Strontium Dog: Search/Destroy Agency Files 04 by John Wagner, Alan Grant, Carlos Ezquerra and Colin MacNeil.

Bounty Hunter Johnny Alpha isn’t alone for long. His latest partner isn’t one whom he would choose neither. Another Strontium Dog or rather, as she prefers, Strontium Bitch, by the name of Durham Red. Her particular, shall we say, affliction is that she has a taste for blood and with a set of fangs, is […]

Dredd 3D (Frank’s take).

The forgettable 1995 film ‘Judge Dredd’ (or as a majority of film critics and fans deemed it Judge Dread-ful) starring Sylvester Stallone was a flat and disjointed sci-fi spectacle that got a tepid treatment from the clueless handlers in Hollywood. Cheapened and hokey, ‘Judge Dredd’ was barely a footnote at the box office some seventeen […]

The <i>other</i> new Judge Dredd film.

While Karl Urban is riding his Lawmaker and grunting and growling his way through the new District 9-styled MegaCity, spare a thought for the other Judge Dredd film slowly working its way to full production. This is a fan film called Judge Minty. For those of you who didn’t follow the classic comic back in […]

Ma-ma Madrigal – origins tale.

What better way to promote the new 3d Judge Dredd flick than to run an animated origins story for the movie’s baddie. That would be drug-dealing Ma-ma Madrigal, aka actress Lena Headey, best known to us SF geeks as Mrs Sarah Connor from the Chronicles of the same name. Killing Terminators, killing Judges, what’s the […]

Judge Dredd new clip.

From the look of this new clip from the Judge Dredd movie, it appears as if Karl Urban is making the role of Judge Dredd his own. I’m with Wil Wheaton Block, want to rumble?
