A trio of Screams

For no reason other than it’s Halloween, my fave three covers from Scream’s woefully short run. I mean, just fifteen issues? How many phone book collections would you need to collect those? Two? Just askin’

Review – Sliced Quarterly issue 8

So this is one that turned up in the website’s inbox totally out of the blue. Wasn’t a title I was familiar with and I only recognised one name inside but the fact it’d made it to issue eight made me think it would have to be to be pretty good. That turned out to…

Coming in 2018 from Rebellion – The Beatles Story

VERY early to be talking about this one but I’m too excited about it to wait. Getting released in February 2018 I’ll be all over this and it’s gonna sit nicely next to the beautiful Fifth Beatle book I already own. Did get my hands on an old issue of Look-In containing one of the…

Review – Nick Prolix’s Slang Pictorial 1

Www.thesheepandthewolves.com While Nick’s name has been well known on the indie circuit for a good few years,  and I’d heard a lot  (of good things) about his work, I only met him this year at my Cardiff Indie Comic Expo. I managed to fail dismally at picking up his books though until True Believers Summer…

Not only is he a walking encyclopedia of comic book art constantly sharing the work of others he also posts up many of his own pieces such as the beautiful commission below.  One day I’ll get something from him….

Friday Faves – Mick Cassidy

“Alright, without delving too deep into mind-melting procrastination, here are three absolute faves. (Ask me again in fifteen minutes, there’ll be three different ones.) US cover: FANTASTIC FOUR #236 by John Byrne and Terry Austin, with pretty much every Marvel character ever. Have to be honest, was never a huge FF fan but I loved…

Review : The Scream and Misty Special

The Scream and Misty Special. And for the record that’s what it’s called. The Scream and Misty Special not the Misty and Scream one, no matter what anyone else may say. Because if 2000AD and Tornado have taught us anything its that when you merge two comics the one bringing the lions share gets the…

Review – Final Girl : Choice Cuts

Another random Thought Bubble purchase because I liked the look of the cover.  Written and drawn by Nik Holmes there was lots about this I absolutely loved and a few things that, for me, could have been done a bit better.  I’m worried I’m going to come across overly critical of this even though it’s…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Conor Boyle

The second of the two Bride pics I got at Thought Bubble this year, this time from Conor Boyle, recently of Hookjaw fame. If you read my post about getting a sketch from Joelle Jones this one was slightly less awkward. I didn’t even bother asking him, I went straight to his wife/manager and put…
