Mainly for the classic characters from DC and Marvel the mainstream comics section here to celebrate the pioneers of the comic book industry which have survived dozens of incarnations and imminent apocalypses’.
Although the line between indie comics and mainstream comics is fairly thin with so many new comic book publishers coming up at the moment but we hope to give them all a fair looking over.
Soon we will be featuring some reviews of a few real classics from the Dark Knight and Superman.
Elephantmen is one of those comics which first pulls you in with the artwork and then blows your mind following it with an amazing back story with everything you could ask for from a comic.
Witchblade has over 130 issues published along with spin-off’s JLA cross overs, a TV series and a film in the making. Along with a whole load more reasons to pick up the book.
One of the best value for money collections, DC Universe the stories of Alan Moore. Collecting titles like Batman : The Killing Joke and other DC milestones.
Frank Miller is still working on Holy Terror, Batman!. Unfortunately it wont be a Dark Knight story.
The Punisher in the hands of Garth Ennis could be one of the most important series from Marvel in years. It made the Punisher the man he is today, a one man army of justice!
The second instalment of Alan Moores The League of extraordinary gentlemen is an almost mind blowing sequel. The first introduced the team and the second broke them up.
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a cross between the Avengers and Sherlock Holmes. A real classic by Alan Moore. Don’t hold the movie against this masterpiece.
After 70 years the top DC comics babe is changing her clothes for a 90’s revamp. Wonder Woman gets a new costume in issue 600 out this week.
Hack Slash, just when you think you can judge a comic by the girl on the cover Tim Seeley pulls an amazingly well put together story in this horror comedy TPB.
I-Zombie, what’s not to love about Vertigo’s latest monthly title. It’s a cross between Walking dead, Bewitched and Dollhouse.
Joss Whedon has done an amazing job in creating Fray the distant future conclusion to Buffy’s demon plagued universe.
Mark Millar has released a small extract from this August’s Kick Ass 2: Balls to the wall.
Kick Ass was one of Mark Millar’s best works and the sequel is currently one of his number one projects at the moment. Here’s a few spoilers for what we can look forward to.
I held back from doing a run down on Mark Millar’s Nemesis issue 1 as it was way too much hype and a bit pants to be honest. Lets see if issue 2 can help it out.
Scott Pilgrim’s comic career maybe coming to an epic finale it gives a bit of room for his movie and video game take shape.
I haven’t followed the adventures of Scott Pilgrim but the trailer has really got my attention as a fun no brainer and all round run comic book movie. Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour will be the 6th and the last in the series.
Another absolute classic from Vertigo. Preacher is a violent bloody comic with a good sense of humour. Read the review with a few spoilers.
The 300 prequel titled Xerxes by Frank Miller is set to be published by Dark Horse and id already looking at a movie adaption.
Spartacus was a show many wanted to hate but couldn’t help to love. It had over the top violence and nudity scenes and now it’s being ported to a comic from DDP.
