Four great reasons you should be reading Image Comics

Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day, a great opportunity to grab some free titles whether you are new to comics or an old hand. As you’re going to be at the store anyway I thought I’d take the opportunity to recommend some titles to you – The thing with Marvel and DC is that they are … Continue reading

Top Five Favourites: Age of Ultron (2015)

I watched Age of Ultron last night and despite having a few misgivings I was not disappointed. I was too busy enjoying it to make any notes to write any kind of review, but there were just a few things that really stood out to me that I wanted to share. Needless to say, there … Continue reading

Review: The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly

The Great Zoo of China Author – Matthew Reilly Published – February 2015 (hardback) As someone who has worked in publicity and marketing in the past, I find myself immune to most marketing campaigns and marvel at how people can really fall for television adverts. So it speaks highly of Matthew Reilly’s The Great Zoo of … Continue reading

Flashback Friday: Top Five Favourites – The Dark Crystal

As an 80s child, The Dark Crystal is firmly one of my childhood favourites, that to this day I still love. Don’t get me wrong, there are aspects that made me cringe even as a child – most of the Gelfling dialogue and the bloody awful sounds Kira makes when talking to animals are just … Continue reading

Season Review: Marvel’s Agents of Shield Season 1

I originally watched the first three of four episodes of Agents of SHIELD when it aired on television, and I just couldn’t get into it. But once I’d watched Captain America: Winter Soldier I had a growing desire to watch the show to experience the larger cinematic universe of Marvel. As a result Hubster and … Continue reading

Flashback Friday – Review: The Killing Joke

The Killing Joke – One Shot, March 1988 DC Comics Author: Alan Moore Illustrator: Brian Bolland Even before the DC/Marvel divide occurred in our house (FYI there is no longer a divide, we are both entirely Marvel converts now), there was another divide. I grew up with Superman, from the comics to the Christopher Reeve movies and … Continue reading

Almost Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Let me start by saying I initially had no interest whatsoever in watching this movie. I had grown up with the cartoon and remember vaguely enjoying it, and I think I may have watched one or both of the old movies, but I never really felt a burning urge to see the Turtles return. Secondly, … Continue reading

Guardians of the Galaxy: The gift that keeps on giving

I’ve not even bothered to write an “Almost Review” for Guardians of the Galaxy, because there is nothing I can say that will do justice to the awesomeness of the movie! So, in brief: Hubster and I have discussed the possibility of it being Marvel’s best film to date. We both loved Cap 2, and … Continue reading
