Links: New Blogs


Undecided on whether to add to the blogroll or not, I shall make use of this post to have a record of some interesting blogs that have appeared in the last couple of weeks. Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time – featuring video clips of carefully selected film deaths. Not much in the way of commentary, but you have to…

Some links before a break


I never thought I would see Tim O’Neill answer the question of ‘who is stronger?’ so central to Marvel zombies, but he provides clear and sensible answers to the eternal problem. Most bizarre, and definitive. Dave Campbell has posted online the first issue of the new comic he has written and co-created, called Templar. The art is very polished and…

Linky: Other People Worth Reading Recently


Because I always feel that San Diego is so very far away and that I will never attend the Comic-Con, I don’t talk about the many, many, many items that come out of there each year (for full details, look at the indexe at CBR). Anyway, it’s not as if this blog is read for up-to-the-minute, biting and witty analysis of…

Back From The Work Week From Hell


Have you ever had one of those weeks? Where the people who pay for your comics and cinema habits ask for that bit extra? Full-on work days, staying after hours, draining your energies so much that you have to take the entirety of Saturday to recover? Well, I just had one of those, which is why I didn’t even have…

Solicitations, Inventory, And, Erm, Stuff


A lot to get through today, so let’s crack on and commentaritating (and making up words): Marvel solicitations for October As Marvel ploughs on with the massive Civil War crossover, there are only a few items worthy of merit that deserve mentioning, for whatever reason I see fit. Ultimate Power #1 Bendis starts off this bizarre crossover, with the Ultimate…

End Of The Week Equals Links


Verily, doth my head acheth, so links must sooth mine furrowed brow. A belated Happy Blogiversary to Mark; one year down, many more to go. Keep up the good work. Kevin Smith seems to go out of his way to show that he is just like us (apart from being richer and more famous), as he blogs about the triviality…

Links. Links. Glorious Links


There is a trade paperback review that will be up shortly, but I felt compelled to do some linking to a few things. The main reason for me doing a links post today was discovering this post yesterday, quite possibly the single funniest thing I’ve read, ever, on a blog (please note, this statement may not actually be true) (via…

DC Solicitations and Other Comics Business


DC solicitations for September can be found here. I thought I’d try something different, and point out a handful of interesting new things from the massive listing of new product from DC, rather than go through the whole thing in detail. In reverse list order: Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall (HC) Bill Willingham tells a collection of short stories, in…

Incoming Inventory and Bonus Links


Incoming Inventory 100 Bullets #73 I’m seeing this series through to the end, rumoured to be the appropriate issue 100, and enjoying it as it comes out. It probably reads better in the trades, but it’s too late for me to switch now. Ex Machina Special #2 Ex Machina was easily one of the best new series of last year,…

Empty. Eternal. Strange.


My brain is not up to the Herculean task of writing novel content (although I don’t think that Hercules ever wrote anything, probably because he was quite stupid, and only up to doing the physical tasks to make up for the bastard he was, but anyway …), so some links and pictures are the order of the day. Ambush Bug…
