“Yakuza Demon Killers” #1

By | Nov 18, 2016 | Reviews

Yakuza! Demons! Killers! With their latest new comic, publishers IDW have tried to hit on that familiar, winning formula of combining peanut butter with chocolate with psychotropic drugs. “Yakuza Demon Killers” is one heady mix of genres, all combined in just one book, and heading into this I expected a whole lotta fun complete with […]

After a brief hiatus, this week sees the return of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s massive hit “The Wicked + The Divine.” Though never the types to just rest on their laurels, the team have shaken things up somewhat with this latest issue and delivered us something a bit more conceptual than we are used […]

“Wolfcop” #1

By | Oct 27, 2016 | Reviews

Just in time for Halloween, the adaptation of “Wolfcop” is here and he reluctantly wants to save us from road thugs, cannibals and huge, evil mutants. Being part wolf and part cop sounds like the most bad ass thing that has ever existed, I mean it is the ultimate combination, but as this new comic […]

The first of Tony Stark’s current replacements, this new book sees the recently healed Doctor Doom take on the mantle of Iron Man. Written by Brian Michale Bendis and his frequent collaborator Alex Maleev on art, everything about this book promises to be a showstopper. I mean who doesn’t want to see Marvel’s premier bad […]

The brand new Spider-man crossover event starts here and going off the teasers we’ve been given by Marvel, the dead are returning. No character, ally or foe, is safe from the undeadening as Dan Slott aims to bring back one or more of Spider-Man’s dearly departed to the comic books. With not one, but two […]

“Champions” #1

By | Oct 7, 2016 | Reviews

A brand new team book comes from Marvel this week, featuring some of their most recognisable and established teen heroes, though I’m afraid this isn’t the book everyone was expecting, this is the “Champions”. Just like most other first issues, writer Mark Waid and artist Humberto Ramos attempt to explain the whys and wherefores of […]

“Doctor Strange Annual” #1

By | Sep 30, 2016 | Reviews

This week sees the first “Doctor Strange” annual in a good long while. Normally reserved for telling off-kilter, special one off stories about our favourite characters, recently annuals have become away for publishers to set up future story lines for their titles as they have become more and more entrenched in the general running order. […]

“Doom Patrol” #1

By | Sep 15, 2016 | Reviews

“Doom Patrol” #1 is the first title to come out of DC and Gerard Way’s joint imprint, Young Animal. From what I can gather, the imprint will specialize in giving a spotlight to DC’s weirder characters and stories. Just like Vertigo did for the company back in the day, Young Animal will exist on the […]

So, we’ve finally reached September: the nights have begun to draw in and we’re all feeling the fatigue of a truly tough year. So, like a burger-shaped beacon of hope, Ryan North is here to make us feel good again, as he takes over Riverdale’s lovable resident glutton. However, does “Jughead” #9 prove to be […]

“X-Men ’92” #6

By | Sep 2, 2016 | Reviews

What’s this? Storm, Wolverine and the rest of the Merry Mutants are helping out their longtime, rockstar friend Lila Cheney? And Agent Brand, an obscure Marvel character and not one, but two real life rock bands are there two. That’s a whole lot of story to get through. This sounds like “X-Men ‘92” to me. […]

“Lake of Fire” #1

By | Aug 26, 2016 | Reviews

Nathan Fairbairn takes the unusual leap from colourist to writer for “Lake Of Fire”, a new series from Image. The book takes us a-Crusading, as 13th Century French Knights take on surprising foes in the shape of extraterrestrial monstrosities. There are a whole ton of stories out there that try, and fail, to blend a […]
