The Pride, Collected Edition [Graphic Novel Review]

Firstly, the version of this I read is now a collectible special edition now, so aren’t I lucky. Secondly, you’re all in luck, because The Pride will be released (re-released?) in June 2021, and you are so definitely going to want to grab this one. I sure as hell will, and I’ll start this reviewContinue reading “The Pride, Collected Edition [Graphic Novel Review]”

iZombie, Vol. 2: uVampire [Graphic Novel]

Vol 1: Dead to the World Review As much as I love the iZombie TV show, I still wish we could get the graphic novel as a show. They’re two vastly different beasts, with iZombie taking on more of a paranormal, urban fantasy aspect, including vampires, wereterriers, and ghosts alongside the title zombie. The secondContinue reading “iZombie, Vol. 2: uVampire [Graphic Novel]”

Fables, Volume 1: Legends in Exile [Graphic Novel Review]

Genre: Fantasy – Urban Fantasy – Graphic NovelPublisher: Vertigo After the Adversary attacks various realms, those living there flee, and find themselves in a world without magic. They keep themselves hidden, living alongside the ‘mundanes’, and working together to keep some sort of unity among each other. Snow White acts as the mayor’s assistant, essentially runningContinue reading “Fables, Volume 1: Legends in Exile [Graphic Novel Review]”

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1910 [Books]

Genre: Graphic Novel – Fantasy – SteampunkRating: I admit, I really liked the first volume of this series. I enjoyed the second. But Century 1910 seriously makes me feel like the whole thing is going downhill. The League is no longer made up of the characters we came to know in volume one, but if you hadn’t readContinue reading “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1910 [Books]”

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]”
