I have always had an on-again-off-again relationship with 2000AD’s comics. Some I really enjoy and some… not so much. I love all of the classics; Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock and the book that 2000AD is most famous for, the behelmeted and grim faced personification of justice himself, Judge Dredd. So when I found out that […]

MTV picked up the exclusive a couple of days ago from Marvel, Rocket Raccoon is getting his own graphic novel series. The Guardians of the Galaxy film isn’t even out for several months yet but Marvel are backing their feisty alien…..that looks exactly like the earth mammal we know as a raccoon. The potentially very entertaining series will be written and […]

On July 17th 2002 a virus simultaneously kills every living mammal possessing a Y Chromosome; except for the main character Yorick and his faithful companion Ampersand.
The brainchild of Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson, “Transmetropolitan” throws a lot of people with its name. Several people apparently believe it has something to do with metro-sexuality and present day New York. This could not be further from the truth, and if you have not heard or indeed read this graphic novel, do it. I cannot give it higher praise, being a huge fan of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
As you’re all probably aware, I’m fairly new to the geek world and its wonders. I had always been a weird human being. I had never really fit in anywhere and never really understood why. Now I know. I am a geek, and I am proud of it. Since delving into the geek world, I […]
So, why am I reviewing Young Liars? A series that many people, it seems, still don’t know about it. Well, it’s because it has me confused, conflicted. In other series such as DMZ or Transmetropolitan I’ve associated with the characters and enjoy how they are portrayed. I enjoy their style and their writing; I really want to read more. Young Liars is different, because its author, David Lapham (Creator of Stray Bullets), has managed to create an air of suspense. I now have questions that won’t go away and I must ...
