eBuying Comics: Week 50

by Ian Wells

Are we in the new age of a second speculator boom? Immediately I would say yes. But there are a lot of caveats to go with that answer. It is not a heat of the moment answer. It is something I have believed has been coming for a number of years, possibly even longer than […]

Wolverine Wednesday #40

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #8 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Adam Kubert & Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourists: Antonio Fabela & Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I actually really enjoyed this issue despite it not delivering on the cover image. As a sidenote, the cover must be the first time Adam Kubert has drawn Maverick since the 90’s […]

by Ian Wells

At the end of last week  we received the news that another highly influential artist pulled up a seat at the great drawing desk in the sky. On the 2nd December Richard Corben passed away at the age of  80. Another talent gone too soon. I had to take a bit of time to put […]

Wolverine Wednesday #39

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #6 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Right away I found it very annoying this didn’t pick up immediately with the rainbow bridge reveal of last issue. That all probably happened in a different comic. Wolverine #6 is after all part 3 of a 22 […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Okay well only the first week of December but 2020 has been horrendous, so lets take the small victories. For a lot of people 2020 has been tough. Lockdowns, tier systems, furlough and social distancing. We have never experienced anything like this before. I hope in those […]

I made the decision to review both issues of Wolverine that tie into X of Swords as one post, and as we are now going into a second lockdown I’m not sure how my LCS will be operating. So this week I will be catching up and giving a review of X-Force having recently picked […]

eBuying Comics: Week 45

by Ian Wells

The Fantastic Four may well be Marvel’s first family but the X-Men are very much my family. I was a fan of the animated series as a kid and like most people was drawn to Wolverine and the infrequent appearances of Cable. There was something about Rogue that a young me didn’t understand! Things really […]

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]

Gotham City a cold winters night. A downtown plaza is where we find our subject. He is a man respected and feared in equal measure. A cold hearted professional. When taking a mission in Gotham it comes with the added mission of avoiding ‘The Bat.’ But he is more than up to the task which […]

eBuying Comics: Week 40

by Ian Wells

So being in a pandemic is not fun! I decided right at the start that writing a blog about the often staggering prices of comics seemed inconsequential compared to real world events. Comics do have a great ability to be social commentary, whilst at the same time offering the ultimate in escapism. With the world […]

Wolverine #2-#3 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit It has been so long since I read the first issue of the new Wolverine ongoing perhaps I should have gone back and read it before these two issues arrived in the post! If memory serves me correctly […]

I didn’t feel my understanding of the complexities of an inkers work were enough to give the man a proper send off. But Joe’s work was such an integral part […]

In the early days of this pandemic we find ourselves all in the idea flew around Twitter of doing a modern take on the Marvel/DC Amalgam of the mid 90’s. Just to put some commentary on to this idea, I’m sure it was suggested with the best intentions and it certainly got people talking online. […]
