Funding Now: Tata Rambo

Henry Barajas has been doing great work in circles I frequent for a while now. Currently, he’s in the closing stages of a kickstarter for what looks like his best project yet. Here’s some of the amazing art, and Henry with the details. A resonant, neglected slice of American history is told for the first […]

Wednesday Comics for 19th September 2018

Last week’s physical comics were a Marvel full house. Three books, all completely different, all very good. Here they are. Immortal Hulk 6, called ‘Action/Reaction’ continues to build the world of the book out in a throughly enjoyable way.

REVIEW: Iceman Issue 1

It’s a weird time in western comics.

It’s both pathetic and entirely what the people who instigated the situation want. Suffice to say, Saturday afternoon, the San Jose convention centre became the no man’s land between two equally apathetic protests, neither

Review: Aliens vs Predator

Every one wants to see champions fight. When the best of the best meet, it makes perfect sense to assume that the violence they perpetrate against one another will be extraordinary in some way. This is the lie that primary mixed martial arts organisations the UFC and Bellator have traded off for years. Remember ten
