Modesty Blaise: Lady In The Dark by Peter O’Donnell and Enric Badia Romero (comic-book review).

It’s autumn and time for another volume of ‘Modesty Blaise’ to make you feel happier about the darker nights although reading in daylight is equally good. The first story, ‘The Girl From The Future’, gets into Science Fiction territory. Modesty admits to reading a little and Willie Garvin a lot. However, it takes a lot […]

Now, here comes the ultimate fracas – Marvel vs D.C. at the cinema box-office. Who wins, who leaves the city with their cape torn and their reputation in […]

He was a lorry driver, until his family was killed when the Volgans invaded Britain in 1999. Now he is a leader in the Resistance and has a cover identity as Bill Carter, […]

Strontium Dog: Search/Destroy Agency Files 04 by John Wagner, Alan Grant, Carlos Ezquerra and Colin MacNeil.

Bounty Hunter Johnny Alpha isn’t alone for long. His latest partner isn’t one whom he would choose neither. Another Strontium Dog or rather, as she prefers, Strontium Bitch, by the name of Durham Red. Her particular, shall we say, affliction is that she has a taste for blood and with a set of fangs, is […]

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 […]

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 […]
