Thunder_Novel

Looking into another indie outing, Bellarius gives a few thoughts on Rich Wilkie’s solo outing, Thunder.

“An interesting start to be sure, and with a few great ideas, but still a hard book to truly recommend.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

David Chilcott: The Thrilling Series of John McBride

david chilcott

David Chilcott is the author of the up and coming John McBride series: ‘Murphy’s Heist’ and its sequel ‘Cruise the Storm’. He is currently writing the third book of the series, planning to be published in early April. Having been an avid reader of fiction for a long time, David has toyed with writing a novel a few times previously. The first occasion was in his late twenties, a science fiction book that was never finished. Ten years later David completed a thriller novel, though never succeeded in getting it published. Third time lucky, with the knowledge of his ability to write thrillers, David set out to write for the e-book audience. He admits that when the first book went online, it has not undergone any editing. After this being pointed out in a review, David withdrew the book and had it edited. This resulted in him partly rewriting it, thus improving its rating to four stars!

Green Arrow #32 – Friday Flash Review

Green Arrow 32

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the latest issue of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s stelar Green Arrow run.

This is an excellent jumping on point to DC’s best comic.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Lemire and Sorrentino kick off a new phase in Oliver’s war against crime and it is spectacular.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

COWL #1 – Friday Flash Review

Cowl-01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at Image’s latest title, from Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel.

“Not quite up to Kyle’s usual standards but interesting nonetheless, although the art isn’t really to my liking.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

An original Take on the superhero genre that doesn’t disappoint – Higgins and Siegel combine to create a great issue with some brilliant artwork.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Daredevil #1 – Friday Flash Review

Daredevil-01

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first issue of the new Daredevil series by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, the latest in the All-New Marvel Now launch.

“Mark Waid proves just why he’s among the best writers on shelves right now with an excellent debut issue that moves Daredevil away from his traditional stomping ground of Hell’s Kitchen. If you only read one All New Marvel Now title, make it this one.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

 “A fantastic start to what promises to be a fantastic series.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

The White Suits #1 – Friday Flash Review

The White Suits 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at Dark Horse’s newest number 1.

“The art is tough to follow and the story is pretty bland in this first issue, so I can only hope that things improve in the next issue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Cypress delivers some awesome unorthodox artwork in a decent noir comic that is far from bad, but it doesn’t quite meet its potential either. Time will tell whether it’s a mini-series worth sticking with or not” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 15.01.2014

Batgirl v3 Vol.1

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up of the new year.

“Just one title for me this time, but it was a pretty good one, so that’s that. I’m getting into reading some older Batgirl comics and across three different trades, the experience has paid off. I think I’m developing into a fan of Bryan Q. Miller’s Batgirl with Stephanie Brown as the titular character.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Death of the Family hits Red Hood and the Outlaws and Nightwing in trade. Whilst Lobdell is able to make Red Hood one of the most relevant books to the crossover out of the entire Bat-family he’s unable to do Jason Todd justice. On the other hand, Kyle Higgins’ Nightwing story is the better of the two, but not the character’s best outing.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
