Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]

Genre: Graphic Novel – Superheroes Publisher: Marvel Rating: Volume 1 Review Side Pieces feels very, very different to Spider-Man/Deadpool Volume 1. Whereas 1 had an over-arching story, the two heroes bouncing off each other and forming a deeper friendship, Side Pieces, like the name, is more a collection of random stories featuring the two heroes, disconnected from oneContinue reading “Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]”

Preludes & Nocturnes – The Sandman, Volume 1 [Books]

Genre: Fantasy Publisher: Vertigo Rating: I kind of knew I would like this, having heard about the series for years and years and years and only just getting around to picking it up, but I don’t think I ever really realised just how much I would like it. In an attempt to capture Death, a groupContinue reading “Preludes & Nocturnes – The Sandman, Volume 1 [Books]”

Penny Dreadful, Volume 1 [Books]

Genre: Horror Publisher: Titan Comics Rating: I really liked the TV series Penny Dreadful. (Not the ending though, but I can’t remember the last time a TV show ending actually left me satisfied) Penny Dreadful is what a good The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen adaptation should look like. Vanessa, in particular, is a fantastic character throughout the series, and I wasContinue reading “Penny Dreadful, Volume 1 [Books]”

Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol 1 [Books]

Funny story behind this one. A long time ago, on a trip to Margate, the BF and I went into an awesome little comic book store. I picked up a few graphic novels, and through visiting various second hand bookshops in the area, a whole lot of new books. I’m still working my way throughContinue reading “Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol 1 [Books]”

iZombie, Vol 1: Dead to the World [Books]

Once I’d finished reading this, I checked out the Netflix series. If you’ve only experienced either the series or the graphic novel, be aware – they are completely different. Even the names of the characters are changed – Gwen in the graphic novel, Olivia in the series. So far I’ve only seen two episodes ofContinue reading “iZombie, Vol 1: Dead to the World [Books]”

Shades of Magic, Volume 1: The Steel Prince – V.E. Schwab [Books]

I’ve mentioned it before, but I really am such a huge Schwab fan. I’m slowly making my way through her books, and have so far not been disappointed by a single one. The Shades of Magic series is definitely one of the best fantasy series’ I’ve read in a long time, and the ending ofContinue reading “Shades of Magic, Volume 1: The Steel Prince – V.E. Schwab [Books]”

Generation X – Scott Lobdell [Graphic Novels]

When it comes to graphic novels, I have a tendency to pick up random ones at cons or second-hand ones in bookshops, depending where I am. Often they’re related in some way to characters I already know in certain franchises, or there’s at least some link, something that draws me to them, if I don’tContinue reading “Generation X – Scott Lobdell [Graphic Novels]”

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Volume Two – Alan Moore [Books]

It took me a long time to get around to reading The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and now I’m two volumes in I feel deeply invested in this mash of classic genre characters. For those who aren’t aware, the first volume introduces us to the core group of characters, pulled from works like Dracula, The InvisibleContinue reading “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Volume Two – Alan Moore [Books]”
