Dredd 3D (Frank’s take).

The forgettable 1995 film ‘Judge Dredd’ (or as a majority of film critics and fans deemed it Judge Dread-ful) starring Sylvester Stallone was a flat and disjointed sci-fi spectacle that got a tepid treatment from the clueless handlers in Hollywood. Cheapened and hokey, ‘Judge Dredd’ was barely a footnote at the box office some seventeen […]

The <i>other</i> new Judge Dredd film.

While Karl Urban is riding his Lawmaker and grunting and growling his way through the new District 9-styled MegaCity, spare a thought for the other Judge Dredd film slowly working its way to full production. This is a fan film called Judge Minty. For those of you who didn’t follow the classic comic back in […]

Good Knight?

The graphic novel that re-sparked Batman from being a camp crusader against crime into a brooding vigilante, Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, is now coming back at us as a Warner Brothers animated ‘toon. It feels slightly old hat after all the growling Batmen of the big screen, but this is still a classic […]

Arrow-ing in: put out an APB for Robin Hood.

Green Arrow gets a makeover from the slightly silly figure we saw practicing bowmanship in Smallville, to a police-pursued vigilante that would make DC Comics proud in this dark new TV series, Arrow.

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 […]
