Outbreaks of the Future: The science-fiction comics of Warren Ellis.

PART ONE: SWITCHBLADE HONEY. Fold yourself, for a moment, into the warm and loving arms of the internet, and it will tell you stories of Warren Ellis – whisper myths, many largely self-propagated, of his constant attendance by a gaggle of sleek and slinky nurses (proud members of his ‘Holy Slut Army’), or his insistent […]

Ma-ma Madrigal – origins tale.

What better way to promote the new 3d Judge Dredd flick than to run an animated origins story for the movie’s baddie. That would be drug-dealing Ma-ma Madrigal, aka actress Lena Headey, best known to us SF geeks as Mrs Sarah Connor from the Chronicles of the same name. Killing Terminators, killing Judges, what’s the […]

The Evil Tree by Erik Hendrix and Daniel Thollin

‘The Evil Tree’ is a rather good ghost story that is rather let down by the artistic style used to depict it. With the story taking up 98 pages, there is room for quite a bit of bonus material filling it out to a respectable 110 pages. Erik Hendrix is credited as the writer with […]

Spaceship Away Part 27 Summer 2012.

Get your 1950s style spaceship out, it’s time to join Captain Dan Dare in the latest edition of ‘Spaceship Away’.

The Lovecraft Anthology Volume II edited by Dan Lockwood

HP Lovecraft has undergone something of a renaissance of late. Alan Moore’s recent ‘Neonomicon’ series introduced the author to a new generation of readers by placing his work and mythos at the centre of an investigation into a cult. While that series created a new angle to look at the author from, it’s important not […]

Strontium Dog: Search/Destroy Agency Files 03 by John Wagner, Alan Grant, Carlos Ezquerra and Robin Smith

Probably the biggest reason you would need to buying the third volume of the ‘Strontium Dog’ books is because of the massive epic storyline dealing with the life and death of Wulf Sternhammer. Hardly spoiler as these tales were originally printed in ‘2000AD’ comic back in the mid-1980s. You would have thought that this was […]
