What I’m Reading – ‘We Stand On Guard’ by Brian K. Vaughan, Steve Skroce, and Matt Hollingsworth

We’ve seen countless times how The United States of America deals with threats, but this comic asks us to consider the question; what if that threat was a little closer to home? Would you feel the same?

It’s a knockout story that’s well-worth reading, now more than ever.

What I’m Reading – ‘Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne’ by Grant Morrison

Comics are confusing. I’d argue that nothing is quite as confusing as the world of DC comics, particularly the really out-there cosmic stuff. And Grant Morrison is famously bonkers.

What I’m Reading – ‘Joker’ by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo

After ‘The Dark Knight’ was released, the Joker became a pop culture icon. People worshipped him, slapping pictures of the character onto clothes and merchandise. You couldn’t escape people doing impressions and asking you “why so serious?”

Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo use the story of lowlife Jonny Frost to give us an alternative look at the Joker, and make you think twice before buying that t-shirt with his picture on.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Review

Thor has a few good movies under his belt, but it’s unlikely most people would pick him as their favourite Avenger. But expect that to soon change once the world has seen Thor: Ragnarok.

Funny, exciting, beautiful to look at and listen to – Thor: Ragnarok is the Thor film we’ve all been waiting…Thor.

Spider-Man Trilogy Review

Spider-Man (2002) “Remember, with great power, comes great responsibility.” Along with the X Men trilogy that was kick started in the late 90’s, the Spiderman trilogy is a bench mark in superhero film making and is arguably some of the most important films in the genre. These films, along with the X Men showed that […]
