Razorjack, John Higgins, Titan Comics John Higgins was the colourist on such well-regarded titles as Watchmen and The Killing Joke and series such as Hellblazer and Judge Dredd, as he keenly informs us on the kind of egotistical introduction to Razorjack, a book he has written, pencilled and coloured all by himself. Razorjack is some […]

Panel Discussion – X-Men: Legacy

by Mark Allen

Hey folks – Mark again. Last week saw a fluke of scheduling for my pull list which meant I only got one comic from the store, that being X-Men: Legacy #9 from writer Si Spurrier and artist Tan Eng Huat.
