Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schrieber – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

maul-lockdown

Shadowhawk takes a look at the latest Star Wars novel, featuring one of the great villains of the setting, Darth Maul.

“A novel with an interesting premise but brought down due to lackluster characterisation and general silliness. This could have been great but is instead mediocre at best.” ~Shadowhawk, 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

Deadly Class #1 – Friday Flash Review

Deadly Class #1

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first issue of Rick Remender’s second creator-owned title for Image Comics, with artists Wes Craig, Rus Wooton and Lee Loughridge.

Rick Remender delivers a stunning first issue that is the start of something special – you’ll really want to be on board for this series because I can already tell it’s going to be one of the best of the year.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“More confusing than anything, but still a decent first issue.” ~Shadowhawk, 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

After a month-and-a-half long break, Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for December, and the penultimate one for the year.

“For a change, this was a fairly good crop of stories, whether it is the always amazing Paul Dini’s Zatanna or the other supernatural of DCU with Dan DiDio’s Phantom Stranger, which turned out to be fairly decent, especially once J. M. DeMatteis stepped in for scripting duties. ” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files delivers a solid standalone graphic novel, whilst Brian Wood impresses with Mara. Over at Zenescope, Robyn Hood: Wanted is entertaining and fun whilst Corinna Beckho impresses with the first volume of the second Star Wars: Legacy series, set 138 years after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.” ” ~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
