Advance Comic Review: Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #1

As a cartoon, Steven Universe is way smarter and more involving than it has any right to be. Following the adventures of a young boy and his three magical guardians, the show is a funny and exciting piece of children’s TV which has subtly dealt with themes such as racism, gay rights, and even consent. As a comic book series, Steven Universe previously had a 12-issue run of anthology issues, with various writers and artists...

PlatinumGames’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is Now Officially a Thing

Yes, the worst kept secret in video games has been “unveiled” today: PlatinumGames are working on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, subtitled Mutants in Manhattan. The official site is a little barebones but it’s now live, along with links to both Facebook and Twitter pages. That’s the good news, the even better news is that Tom Waltz, writer of the excellent IDW TMNT comic book, is working on the...

Superman/Wonder Woman HeroClix – Starring Earth-2, The Elite and More…

It’s been a while since we had our introductory HeroClix content up, where we took a week to check out the Marvel flavoured version of the game. Specifically we looked at the game from the point of view as brand new players and comic book fans, giving an outsider’s perspective to the game and seeing if we could be converted into HeroClix fans. I’m happy to report that we really enjoyed the miniatures and the game itself, as you can...

Review: The Walking Dead #150 – Betrayal

For a 150th issue, this week’s The Walking Dead is surprisingly mundane. That said, a mundane issue of The Walking Dead is often still a damn good comic book. Perhaps it’s a testament to all the hype and marketing buzz that surrounds comic book milestones these days, but I really expected something huge, a shocking death or a vital new character’s introduction. Yet despite the important and impactful events of #150, it’s nothing you...

Review: Bitch Planet #6 – Meiko Maki’s Flashback

Bitch Planet #6 opens with a trigger warning, a considerate move by the creative team and something I wish more comics would do when it’s appropriate. As expected, this isn’t an issue that holds back, but of course that’s one of the reasons Bitch Planet is consistently such a powerful comic in the first place.   SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR BITCH PLANET #1-5 (Volume 1)   Issue #6 is another flashback issue, exploring the backstory of...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review (Spoiler-Free)

Fellow spoiler-phobes can relax. This review is entirely spoiler-free with no plot or characters specifics discussed. The two images included are from the original teaser trailer and nothing is alluded to that wasn’t evident in the first two teasers. Enjoy!    Star Wars The Force Awakens is perhaps the most expensive and elaborate form of fan service ever created. This is a film built on giving people exactly what they...
