Mass Effect: Foundation #8 by Mac Walters (Writer) and Tony Parker (Artist).

The beginning of the eighth issue of ‘Mass Effect: Foundation‘ deals with the aftermath of Kai Leng and Agent Rasa’s failure to capture Jack in the previous issue. The tension between them seems worse than the repercussions of their failure. Kai Leng’s facial expressions here are so well drawn! Between that and his posture, his fury is clearly evident […]

Serenity: Leaves On The Wind # 2 by Zach Whedon and Georges Jeanty.

It took me so long to get to the first issue of ‘Serenity: Leaves On The Wind’ that the second issue showed up in my inbox only a week later. Procrastination rewarded! There are no preview pages for this comic on the Dark Horse website and when the first issue came out, reviewers were asked […]

Steam Engines Of Oz Volume 2: The Geared Leviathan by Sean Patrick O’Reilly & Erik Hendrix (graphic novel review).

If there was one word I would use to describe ‘The Geared Leviathan’ graphic novel it is ‘sumptuous’. The layout, artwork and lettering are very well done. As the series title, ‘Steam Engines Of Oz’ suggests, the lands and people of the Wizard of Oz have had a steampunk makeover. This has been tastefully done […]

Like all sub-sets of the population, they’re regarded with distrust, however. Some attempt to blend with society, others are hidden away and yet others are invited to put their exemplary minds to use. When […]

Elephantmen: Fatal Diseases Vol. 2 (graphic novel review).

‘Elephantmen’ is a comic series that hadn’t crossed my radar before, which is a real shame if this collection is anything to go by. Although this is the second collection of ‘Elephantmen’ stories, comprising issue numbers 8-15, there’s a brief story-so-far section at the beginning as well as plenty of flashback sequences that make the […]

DC Comics goes steampunk loopy.

It’s only seven years since The Court of the Air‘s best-selling success pushed steampunk from being a Fan in-joke to a burgeoning literary, cosplay and social movement, but now DC Comics are throwing their weight behind the genre with steampunk covers for large swathes of the New 52 crew. There’s everything from Steampunk Batman to […]
