Crucible

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

Dawn of the Jedi: Into The Void by Tim Lebbon – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Into the Void

Comics Round-up 01.06.2013

Earth 2 Annual 2013

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

Demon Reborn is a below-par Witchblade title from Dynamite that just fails to ever get going. Bill Willingham’s Fairest, a Fables spin-off, has a bit of a rough start but gets better with each issue. Geoff Johns’ Justice League of America continues to impress but still has a fair few flaws that prevent it from becoming a top title. And Brian Wood’s ongoing Star Wars is just superb with excellent characterisation and dialogue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Batman: Earth 2 Annual #1 provides a misleading first outing for the new caped crusader while Nightwing impresses. Thanos Rising is comparable to Star Wars, and, Wolverine and the X-Men seems set to be one of the weirdest Marvel comics currently ongoing. ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Crucible

Bane of Kings writes an Advance Review of the upcoming Crucible by Troy Denning, published by Del Ray Books with a release date of July 9 2013.
