‘Game of Thrones 6×05: The Door’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Hodor.” It feels strange to learn something so grave and so terrible in a scene less than a minute long. The Children of the Forest made their own destroyers, sacrificing men on the roots of their heart trees and giving them a new and awful life as the White Walkers, a bitter sword forged to […]

‘Doom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

There are probably people in the gaming world that don’t understand the importance of Doom and the way it changed the face of shooting games. Sure, Wolfenstein 3D may have been the first, but it was merely a prototype of what was to come. With this in mind, does the new Doom live up to […]

‘Straitjacket’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by El Torres | Art by Guillermo Sanna | Published by Amigo Comics I hate it when the title of a book sometimes has no relation to the content within, or has very little relevance. No problem with that here, we have a title and a book that does exactly what it says on […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far the ‘Night Witch’ arc has been very entertaining, lots of nice character work adding to the ongoing storyline involving a lot of Russian things – Russian gangsters, Russian witches, Russian supernatural beings. To […]

‘Alan Dracon #1′ Review (Amigo Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written and Drawn by Stefano Martino | Published by Amigo Comics It’s quite refreshing sometimes to go into a new book knowing very little about it, and with this book I had the hat-trick. I didn’t know the publisher, the creator, or the character. The publisher, Amigo Comics, are a relatively new company working out […]

WWE: This Week in Review (Raw/Smackdown/NXT)

by Chris Cummings

So, we are heading quickly towards WWE’s second May PPV, Extreme Rules, and there are lots of rematches from Payback likely to happen at that show. I hope this doesn’t mean the product will be stale for the next month or so, but we shall see. RAW (9th May 2016) Results: Baron Corbin defeated Dolph […]

‘WWE – The US Championship: A Legacy of Greatness’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

I’ve often said that I find the history WWE Blu-Ray releases the best, so when one was released celebrating the US Championship I was obviously looking forward to it. Although we often see people like John Cena dominating the belt these days it has one of the more interesting histories of any of the belts. […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×04: Book of the Stranger’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Don’t you wish we could go back to the day we left?” The human desire for catharsis is primal and powerful. Hurt, we want succor and revenge. Slighted, we want justice. ‘Book of the Stranger’ is a complex portrait, sometimes lovely, sometimes gruesome, of what those impulses mean and how they impact our lives. In […]

‘Samurai #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jean-Francois Di Giorgio | Art by Frederic Genet | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As I have done with both previous issues of Samurai, I read this through twice. Once, to read the actual story, the second time just to look at the visuals. Not only is Genet’s artwork amazing […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Last issue was a little disappointing, as the great pace and progression of the first two issues gave way to an issue of essentially treading water, where very little actually happened. We still followed […]

‘Battleborn’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Let me get something off my chest before delving further into this review… I’m not a huge fan of Borderlands or MOBA’s either for that matter, so I’m not exactly the target audience for the likes of Battleborn. But even I was willing to give the game the benefit of the doubt, even despite my […]
