‘Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alan Martin | Art by Brett Parson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp First things first before I start my review. Tank Girl as a character is not really aimed at me anymore, at my ‘demo’ as the marketing men like to call it. Once upon a time, in the […]

‘Norman #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Art & Writing by Stan Silas | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback At first glance this book looked a little, er, different. Or strange. Yes, let’s go with strange. ‘I am 8 Years old and I kill People’ is a pretty attention grabbing tagline after all. Norman had previously been the ‘star’ of […]

‘Party Hard’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

The life of a serial killer can be a hard one, especially if you are caught too soon. Party Hard is now on the PlayStation 4 and gives you the chance to stealthily kill off partying neighbours just looking for a good time. Are we getting sick of these “retro” looking games about mass murder, […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×07: The Broken Man’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Violence is a disease.” Possession, loss, reclamation; these are mile markers on the endless circuit of war down which great houses and their hapless draftees trudge, marching ever lower on a corkscrew path like a frozen whirlpool, like a huge mouth sucking up men and spitting out corpses. But why? Why keep fighting even, as […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As cross platform tie-ins go, this has been pretty good. Rather than being constrained by the restrictions of writing something that exists essentially to draw attention to an upcoming game release (that’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided if […]

‘The Tunnel: Sabotage’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of The Tunnel, it had a big job to do. Being the remake of The Bridge, it had to make it out of the Nordic Noir show’s shadow. With the first season it arguable managed to do this, but can it do it again with The Tunnel: Sabotage? The Tunnel: Sabotage brings together the team of […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Although for me this has overall been one of the weaker Who titles, in recent issues I’ve found myself warming more to it. Interestingly enough, that coincided with both Eleonora Carlini and Elena Casagrande taking a break […]

‘Blood Bath’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

Arrow Video’s latest release, Blood Bath, has a storied history. You may be surprised to discover how the footage filmed for it was stretched over four different films. Thankfully Arrow have not only included these four films, but taken a look into a very interesting production… Blood Bath in its final form is the story […]

‘Independence Day #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Alex Shibao | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I think to date this series has been receiving what I will diplomatically call mixed reviews. My reviews have not been mixed at all, in the sense that I think it has been a poor book. The […]

Book Review: ‘My Best Friend’s Exorcism’

by Chris Cummings

Written by Grady Hendrix | Published by Quirk Books I was a huge fan of Grady Hendrix’s previous novel, Horrorstor, a ghost story set in an Ikea-like superstore. It took a genre and spun it on its head, changed things and made something fresh out of a well-trodden genre. I was very excited about his […]

‘WWE Extreme Rules 2016′ Review

by Chris Cummings

WWE’s annual Extreme Rules PPV always finds itself full of gimmick matches such as table matches, ladder matches, street fights and things of that nature, so it’s no surprise that the 2016 version of Extreme Rules is also full of these types of matches. Sometimes it can result in overkill, other times it can result […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×06: Blood of My Blood’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s not an easy thing, admitting to yourself who you really are.” Fanatics, dragonriders, face-peeling assassins, and the walking dead. ‘Blood of My Blood’, the sixth episode of Game of Thrones‘ riveting sixth season, spent its hour marrying intimate moments of introspection to towering spectacle as deftly as the High Sparrow facilitated his erasure of the […]
