‘Luke Cage 1×02: Code of the Streets’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

‘Westworld 1×01: The Original’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

O, reason not the need: our basest beggars Are in the poorest thing superfluous: Allow not nature more than nature needs, Man’s life’s as cheap as beast’s: thou art a lady; If only to go warm were gorgeous, Why, nature needs not what thou gorgeous wear’st, Which scarcely keeps thee warm. But, for true need, […]

‘Luke Cage 1×01: Moment of Truth’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“UPS ain’t the only brown that delivers.” Actor Mike Colter’s guarded, injured, and ultimately good-hearted turn as Luke Cage was one of the few pleasures the first season of Jessica Jones had to offer. On his own and grounded in a much more immediate and organic sense of place and moment, he doesn’t disappoint. Luke Cage, adapted from the […]

‘The Out-Laws (aka Clan): The Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that if the UK or America handled The Out-Laws (aka Clan) it would be just another Suburban Housewives. Thankfully though the Dutch have a darker sense of humour and we are treated to a tale of potential homicide where things never go to plan. The Out-Laws is the tale of […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics For most people, Tom Baker IS The Doctor, and he was certainly a big part of my TV viewing childhood.

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Descendants: Locus #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edginton | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics Until relatively recently, comics based on games were something that I would very rarely pick up. They were often just cheap cash-ins, primarily designed to drum up interest in the main product itself, and lacking in both quality and creator enthusiasm. […]
