The Art Of Thor The Movie by Matthew K. Manning (book review).

I did actually get this book last year but fitting it into my review schedule was more problematic than I thought it would be. It goes without saying that ‘The Art Of Thor The Movie’ is both a history of the Marvel Comics character and that of the film. The emphasis here has been more […]

The Batcave Companion by Michael Eury and Michael Kronenberg (book review).

I should say from the start that ‘The Batcave Companion’ isn’t actually a look at the various versions of the Batcave, although there is indeed some reference to it but a look at how the down-in-sales Batman leading up to the early 60s was rejuvenated into the Earth-2 version most of you are familiar with […]

The Complete Nemesis The Warlock Volume 1 – Books 1-4 by Pat Mills, Kevin O’Neill, Jesus Redondo and Bryan Talbot	 (book review).

‘Nemesis The Warlock’ was one of ‘2000AD’s oddest series when I was younger reading the title. Reading it again now is a reminder of how prevalent the series was about prejudice. Hardly surprising really when it was based off the Spanish Inquisition and even more peculiar in that humans were the villains of the piece […]
