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

Comics Round-up 15.10.2013

Punisher - The Trial Of The Punisher 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for October.

“In an effort to read more Marvel, I picked up a bunch of new titles, plus one of the few ongoing series I’m following right now and have to say that the experience has been largely negative. Both the new Captain America and Spider-Man comics have proven to be duds with the first issue while the new Punisher comic was half-decent at a stretch.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Judge Dredd: Year One provides a great look into the early years of the character whilst the first volume of Grimm provides a nice adaption set in the world of the NBC series that you can enjoy whether or not you’re a fan.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Green Arrow #24 by Jeff Lemire – Friday Flash Review [Shadowhawk/Bane of Kings]

Green Arrow 24

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

“Sometimes it so happens that all the popular acclaim for a series is understated. This is one of those times.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

As usual, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino continue to deliver on one of my favourite ongoing DC Comics, providing a perfect jumping on point for new readers that really gives you no excuse to miss out.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 01.10.2013

Injustice Gods Among Us Vol. 1,

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for October.

“As expected, and inevitable, DC’s Villain’s Month ends on a mixed note.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“The first volume of Injustice: Gods Among Us is flawed but fun, however the first volume of Shazam knocks it out of the park and proves why the next announcement that DC makes should be to confirm a new Shazam ongoing series.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Crucible by Troy Denning – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Crucible

Shadowhawk reviews the latest Star Wars novel, from long-time Star Wars scribe Troy Denning.

“One of the most exciting and fun novels about the Star Wars ‘Trinity’ of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa that I’ve read in a long time. An absolute must read.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
