Publisher: MarvelRelease Date: April 5th, 2006Genre: Superhero Comics Rating: 5/5 Stars Volume 1 Review I really liked the first volume of this so had high expectations going into the second and, you know what?

Graphic Novel Review: Secret Invasion

Publisher: Panini ComicsRelease Date: Feb 4th, 2009Genre: Sci-Fi Rating: 4/5 Stars Note to self for future: don’t try and read a Marvel comic such as Secret Wars #1, then read a Marvel cross-over event graphic novel such as Secret Invasion, then pick up something like Secret Wars #2. You will end up a little confused.Continue reading “Graphic Novel Review: Secret Invasion”

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]”

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]”

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]”
