Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey, Zach Craley | Art by Rubine | Published by Titan Comics | Format:Paperback, 32pp Issue 1 of this 5 issue limited series was a bit of a disappointment to me, it must be said.

Comic Book Developers Recognise the Potential of Female Characters

by Guest

It has recently become known that there are more female gamers than male, there was a general suspicion that the industry had yet to recognise this statistic. After all, the market is dominated by adrenalin-packed, male influenced titles such as Call of Duty, while similar titles and characters also command the attention of the mainstream […]

Ten Best: Comics of 2014

by Dan Clark

This marks the first time I have ever done a Top 10 Comics list. I will have to preface this list by saying I do not read a great deal of comics. In order to keep up with movies the way I do, my time to read comics is rather limited. However, thanks in large […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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.
