‘Game of Thrones 6×10: The Winds of Winter’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Promise me, Ned.” Olenna Tyrell sits all in black in the water gardens of Dorne, surrounded by beautiful women bent on revenge. “Cersei stole the future from me,” she tells Ellaria. Her enemy’s crime is so vast, so terrible that it cannot be described as the destruction of places or people. Instead it is the transformation, […]

‘Towerkind’ Review (Graphic Novel)

by Chris Cummings

Created by Kat Verhoeven | Published by Conundrum Press Towerkind is a weird book, let’s get that out of the way before we get into the meat of this review. It’s odd, at times confusing, and a little bit mismanaged in terms of the plot. That doesn’t mean I hated this book, because I didn’t. Towerkind […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve played enough of the past Telltale Games you know that there is a need for a change. The games are fun, and tell good tales, but the engine itself is starting to creak. With Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 1 – Realm of Shadows, these changes may be showing signs of coming. In […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×09: Battle of the Bastards’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I lived with him.” Violence is a form of intimacy. To cut into another person’s body, to reveal the secret machinery of their existence, is an incredible violation, yes, but it’s also about the closest, physically, two people can be. The dead of the Battle of Winterfell form a hill together, a single massive edifice […]

‘The Booth at the End: The Complete Series 1 & 2′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to television shows, a lot tend to follow a successful formula. In the cutthroat world where shows have to survive year to year, it seems that “different” can be a risk not worth taking. However The Booth at the End is different and with the release of the show on DVD we […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×08: No One’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“He died fighting.” The Blackfish dies offscreen in a lonely stairwell, his last words a wry observation that he hasn’t been in a proper sword fight in years and that he’ll most likely embarrass himself. The Waif dies in the dark under Braavos, skewered by the girl she tormented and beat, her face given to […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

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.

‘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 […]
