eBuying Comics: Week 12

by Ian Wells

Lights! Camera! Action! This week I am talking movie tie ins and movie adaptation comics. In the old days the show was firmly on the other foot when it came to comics and movies.

Culture Dump #16: Why did the ‘Predator’ franchise miss the mark?

by Simon Bland

Xenomorphs weren’t the only extraterrestrial terror hunting humans throughout the eighties. Not long after James Cameron pulled the trigger on his testosterone-charged sequel Aliens, Director John McTiernan introduced us to a new intergalactic hunter with Predator in 1987. Two war movies, two alien franchises, two very different legacies. However as Predator closes in on its […]

Last week we featured Hudson, who of course had the famous “Game Over Man!”, and it only seems that this week we move to the Corporal Hicks figure.

‘Alien and Predator Figure Collection: Pvt. Hudson’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After looking at the Xenomorph last week for Eaglemoss’ Alien and Predator Figure Collection it seems fitting to look at another iconic character from the Alien franchise. This week it is a certain character that may have proclaimed “Game Over!” a little too soon, but was a hero none the less. When we first saw […]

‘Alien and Predator Figurine Collection: Xenomorph’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the upcoming release of Alien: Covenant, we get a glimpse of the origins of the Xenomorph. To fans though, it will always begin with Alien. The moment the creature rips itself from the chest of John Hurt is one of the most iconic moments in movie history. This is why my review of the […]
