Deadpool Reloaded: More Music From The Motion Picture (CD review).

I should point out from the start that this isn’t the original soundtrack but the extra music tracks from the 2016 film ‘Deadpool’.

Showcase Presents: Batman Volume 6 by Dennis O’Neil, Neal Adams and, Frank Robbins (graphic novel review).

I read an interview with Denny O’Neil a while back in which he was asked how his famous pairing with Neal Adams that resulted in so many classic stories came about. He said it was just random chance. When he handed in a script he had no idea which artist would be drawing it. Just […]
