eBuying Comics: Week 63

by Ian Wells

I thought I would dedicate this space to taking a moment to reflect on eBuying Comics in 2021 and look towards the future. I always used to buy the summer edition of Wizard magazine as it was an entertaining indicator on how good/bad comics had been that and how much better/worse they were going to […]

Wolverine #12 Writer: Benamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: JP Mayer | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Unfortunately this issue brings the current story arc to a climax in much the same fashion as the previous story arc.

Wolverine #6 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Right away I found it very annoying this didn’t pick up immediately with the rainbow bridge reveal of last issue.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Okay well only the first week of December but 2020 has been horrendous, so lets take the small victories. For a lot of people 2020 has been tough.

I made the decision to review both issues of Wolverine that tie into X of Swords as one post, and as we are now going into a second lockdown I’m not sure how my LCS will be operating. So this week I will be catching up and giving a review of X-Force having recently picked […]

eBuying Comics: Week 45

by Ian Wells

The Fantastic Four may well be Marvel’s first family but the X-Men are very much my family. I was a fan of the animated series as a kid and like most people was drawn to Wolverine and the infrequent appearances of Cable. There was something about Rogue that a young me didn’t understand! Things really […]

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]

eBuying Comics: Week 37

Trade paperbacks and hardcover collections are no doubt the comics industries biggest commodity. For my favourtite characters I am still a floppies guy. If I ever want to try something new, or catch up on something I missed, TPBs are the way to go. They are so readily accesible nowadays whether it be from comic […]

This year the character with the longest name in comics, and one of the coolest alter egos in comics, turns thirty years old. I am of course talking about the time-travelling mutant bad-ass that is Nathan Christoper Charles Dayspring Summers aka Cable. Although he has also been known as Askani’son, Chosen One, Traveler and Soldier […]

As soon as you start reading/collecting comics you will soon learn one of the hottest topics is fantasy fights.

From their humble Silver Age beginnings, to comic culture behemoth, to Marvel’s first successful movie franchise. The X-Men have certainly had a roller coaster ride in their fifty six years existence. Starting out with a roster of five (Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman and Angel) led by Charles Xavier the ranks of the X-Men increased […]

Nothing hits the nostalgia sweet spot better than a good old issue of Marvels ‘What If?’ line.

eBuying Comics: Week 17

by Ian Wells

I used to walk around comic conventions and question why would anyone consider buying the Marvel Essentials. It always struck me as a wasted investment buying collections of stories in black and white and on inferior paper. Fast forward a few years and I now love the idea of Marvel Essentials. There is nothing else […]
