Review – Ant Wars

Over on “The Imaginarium” website, Alan Holloway has posted up a review of the new Ant Wars collection from Rebellion which he’s been good enough to say I could share on here. I’m doing so even though I’m obviously OUTRAGED he’s done the entire thing without a single mention of the ZX Spectrum game 3D…

Comichaus Review – Morgan’s Organs issue 1 : Head to Head

As I’m enjoying the excellent Comichaus App so much I thought I’d try and do a quick review of a random comic from there every week. First up, the current first comic in the New Additions category, Morgan’s Organs #1 – Head to Head. The Synopsis from their website : This series focuses on Morgan…

Review : Dungeon Fun, How to be a Ghost, & nine lines of metro

I’ve been a bit of a huge fan of Neil Slorance’s since stumbling across the first few issues of Dungeon Fun (which he drew, and Colin Bell wrote) at Thought Bubble a few years ago.  Since then I picked up the rest of that run, and swiftly gifted them on to my mate Bintykins once…

Advance review – Strike Team Code Name Diamond Force

I’ll try a one line summary for this book but I’ll need you to work with me a bit and hear it in the voice of the guy who did all the 80s movie trailers that usually started with “In a world…”.   So “In a world where deadly night ninjas are free to capture a…

100% Biodegradable Issue 19 Before I start I’ll post the blurb which will save me putting credits on everything. I’m lazy but I’m not stupid : Inside issue 19 of 100% Biodegradable: A seaside clash between Mods and Rockers is met with nuclear retaliation in Mods Versus Mutants by David Hailwood, Neil Bryant and Tony…

Retro Review – Oink #1

Ahhhh, Oink! I actually bought this one back in the day and must have enjoyed it as I kept getting them for a while afterwards too. The cover? Well it has a parody of the lovely Mary Whitehouse (ding, dong, the witch is dead) and a FLEXI SINGLE! If that doesn’t take you back to…

Review – 2000AD 2048

Cover by Luke Preece Think this is what’s referred to as a grower. I wasn’t too struck when I first saw it but it’s apparently getting better each time I go back to look at it. Giving this review a quick once over before posting and I proper love it now. Great composition and colours…

Review – Something Wicked 2017

Horror in comics is hard. You can’t use any of the tricks of films such as jump scares, music or overt misdirection and you don’t have the luxury of prose where you can subtly build atmosphere and really get into the heads of your characters. Well, unless it’s a massive manga such as the brilliant…

Review – Misty Vol1

I feel I should probably start this off by talking about how important culturally Misty was and still is. I’m not going to.  I’m sure if you want you can find loads of posts around the internet telling you why you SHOULD read this, I’m just going to focus on if you’d WANT to read…

Review: One Eyed Jack!

A no nonsense, unstoppable, hard as nails cop written by the inimitable John Wagner? Yes please!  I’ve spent an awful lot of my life (and even more of my money) indulging in such pleasures, so I was thrilled when Rebellion announced that One Eyed Jack, the seminal antihero who precluded Judge Dredd, was to be…
