Panel Discussion #29 – Titan Special

by Phil Wheat

A new year and a new installment of Panel Discussion and this time round I’m taking the reigns to talk about two new comics from the folks at Titan Comics: Batman/Superman #1 and Batman: Arkham #1. As with many of Titan’s UK-released superhero comics, these two issues are made up of already-released DC Comics, in […]

Panel Discussion #28

by Jack Kirby

So Infinity (w. Jonathan Hickman a. Jim Cheung, Dustin Weaver) concluded what’s been an interesting if not exactly mind-blowing run. The Avengers return to earth to sort out Thanos and his nasty mates, Maximus of the Inhumans cracks wise and saves the world and Rocket Raccoon makes an all-too brief (like, one panel appearance). The […]

Panel Discussion #24

2nd October So it took all of one issue for the novelty of The Star Wars (#2, JW Rinzler, Mike Mayhew, Dark Horse) to wear off. I liked the curio factor of the first issue of this new series, which takes George Lucas’s first draft of the Star Wars script as the basis for its […]

Panel Discussion #23 with Jack and Mark

by Mark Allen

This post is a little outdated, and that’s entirely due to my faffing around and taking far too long to read emails, so don’t blame Jack. Er, sorry. – M Jack I’ve recently been catching up with The Wake, Scott Snyder’s fishy tale on DC’s Vertigo label, illustrated by Sean Murphy, now on its fourth […]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Recap: “0-8-4″

by Mark Allen

One of the hardest things to tell with big-budget shows that categorically need to be successful is how much of each episode is what was originally intended by the authors and how much is network notes. In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D‘s – sorry, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D‘s second episode, in which much of the action happens […]

Some thoughts on the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ pilot

by Mark Allen

I’m going to try not to be too biased here, but I guess it’s kind of telling that my favourite moment from the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was when Shepherd Book was on screen for all of ten seconds. Yeah, this show’s definitely for the fanboy in me. I’ve always been a fan of […]

Panel Discussion #22 with Jack and Mark

by Jack Kirby

11th and 18th September Jack here; I’ve bashed two weeks of my contributions to Mark’s stuff for the week of the 11th, because a) I’m behind on my writing and b) I’m not sure how to get caught up otherwise. Bit of a mishmash then, but I’m sure you can handle it, intelligent and tolerant […]

Panel Discussion #21

by Jack Kirby

Better late than never… 4th September I bought lots of comics this week because there were lots of comics that I thought looked interesting. After being pleasantly surprised by the first book in the new Infinity (Jonathan Hickman, Jerome Opeña, Dustin Weaver, Marvel Comics) series, I was looking forward to the second issue. However, where […]

Panel Discussion #020 with Mark, not Jack

by Mark Allen

28th August It’s a week of almost-beginnings and not-quite endings: Angel and Faith #25 ends one half of Buffy‘s Season Nine by wrapping up the climactic action within the first few pages and shakes up the status quo enough for Season Ten to arrive feeling relatively fresh. Gage and Isaac’s work over the past couple years has been excellent, […]

Panel Discussion number whatever – Jack Catches Up

by Jack Kirby

Oh my gosh, there are so many comics. I took a month off visiting the comic shop on a weekly basis due to time constraints and the desire to have a little bit more money in my account prior to the end of the month. But then I got a fat stack of comics that […]

I’m sort of technically on holiday this week after moving house and starting a new job (y’know, one that doesn’t involve free comics and lets me buy luxuries like bread and loo roll) last week, which is why things have been a little behind with this column.

Hey guys, Mark here. As my comics addiction turned much more literal last week and I ended up buying 10 new books at the store (along with attempting to inject Hawkeye pages into my bloodstream with my trusty [hip drug] needle, which is EXACTLY as hard as it sounds), I decided to go for brevity and […]
