Bill & Ted Go to Hell #3

Apr 28, 2016

As someone who grew up with the Bill and Ted movies, the pleasingly 90's art style and well scripted dialogue presented in Bill and Ted Go to Hell #3 takes you back into the nonsensical, but bodacious world of the endearingly dumb but good hearted duo, leaving any fan satisfied.

Jim Henson's Labyrinth: 30th Anniversary Special #1

Aug 10, 2016

Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Special #1is a beautifully presented anthology of tales, revisiting the world through lovingly crafted short stories and some of your favourite characters. It doesn't entirely consist of new material and lacks in the absence of Jareth, but in this year of 30th anniversary celebrations is a must have for fans of Labyrinth. It will not disappoint in quality and is highly entertaining regardless. Expect a case of warm fuzzy feelings.

Mars Attacks: Occupation #3

May 18, 2016

Mars Attacks: Occupation #3 is astop-gap in what is still a hugely entertaining miniseries that is worth dipping into and is a perfect piece of uncomplicated Sci-fi escapism, if you need a break from the heavier things in life.

Mars Attacks: Occupation #4

Jul 4, 2016

Mars Attacks: Occupation #4 has reached the point of no return – will the finale return to the snappy pacing and meet the expectations set by the earlier issues? I think so. It's time ‘to save the world'.

Mars Attacks: Occupation #5

Aug 18, 2016

So there you have it –the final issue of Mars Attacks: Occupation. Was it worth it? I can't deny it. I have been thoroughly entertained throughout " not on a groundbreaking or mind blowing level, but enough for me to recommend it as a light, enjoyable, and darkly humourous read.

Penguins: The Elitest of the Elite #2

Apr 6, 2016

While demographically for a younger audience,wonderfully colourful and well-defined, Penguins: The Elitest of the Elite #2certainly managed to make me audibly chuckle at the ripe old age of twenty-five and is a nice light read for anyone who fancies a pick me up, or something you can easily dip into without much investment of time or concentration.

Sherlock: A Study In Pink #2

Jul 13, 2016

I would highly recommend Sherlock: A Study in Pink #2 for die hard fans and newcomers to the franchise, but if you're after a brand new Sherlock adventure, this may not be for you.

Sherlock: A Study In Pink #3

Aug 12, 2016

While Sherlock: A Study in Pink #3 doesn't offer anything new to the seasoned Sherlock audience – this being its main hindrance – the Manga continues to entertain and as you get used to the format it's presented in, picks up the pace by leading you down the streets of intrigue. In Sherlock: A Study in Pink #3Watson meets Sherlock's ‘arch-enemy' and phones a murderer. At least now he has something to write in his blog…

The Fix #2

May 11, 2016

There is a huge quantityof passionthrust intothis project and It really is a diamond – I am struggling to find faultwith it as a whole. I have been reading and re reading The Fix #2 – it's completely effortless – and nothing presents itself as a glaring negative because you're enjoying it too much, except…we were promised a dog.

The Fix #6

Oct 15, 2016

It is futile to assume the direction whichThe Fix will take, it's about as predictable as the English weather. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber have copious amounts of tricks up their sleeves and they're not done yet…

The Fix #7

Dec 23, 2016

As far as the Mac solo outings are concerned, The Fix #7is the best thus far. The plot thickens to a particularly gooey consistency, driving the story forward as new dynamics come into play. Previously unanswered questions are explored and Mac's side of the story begins to offer more intrigue, without moments of 'where's Roy?' experienced in previous Mac issues.
