Prisoner_of_the_Floating_World_TPB

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

Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: Fool Moon Volume 2 by Mark Powers – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Fool Moon Vol. 2

Bane of Kings writes a short review of the second volume of the graphic novel adaption of the second novel in Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Fool Moon, adapted by Mark Powers. 

“An interesting graphic novel that brings the world of Dresden to life, but ultimately suffers from the fact that it is not Butcher who is doing the adaption.” ~The Founding Fields

The Dresden Files: Small Favour by Jim Butcher – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Small Favour

Bane of Kings offers his thoughts on the tenth Dresden Files novel, Small Favour, written by Jim Butcher and published by Orbit. 

Ten novels in and Butcher proves he can still make a fresh installment. Action-packed, rip-roaring and amazing, Small Favour may just be the best Dresden Files novel yet.” ~The Founding Fields

The Dresden Files: Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Proven Guilty

Bane of Kings reviews Proven Guilty, Book Number 8 in the best Urban Fantasy series out there on the market today, The Dresden Files, written by Jim Butcher and published by Orbit Books.

“Eight Books in and Butcher continues to suprise, enthrall, and entertain. Proven Guilty proves that Butcher is not just capable of writing an awesome novel, but continuing an awesome series.~The Founding Fields

Note: This review presumes that the reader has read at least the first Seven Books in the Dresden Files series, as there is spoilers for previous books.

The Dresden Files: Dead Beat by Jim Butcher – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Dead-Beat

Bane of Kings Reviews the Dresden Files novel Dead Beat, Book Seven in the series, published by Orbit in the UK.

“Dresden is back, and better than ever. Dead Beat is one of my favourite Dresden Files novels yet, and is one not to be missed for any fan of Butcher or his work.” ~The Founding Fields

Warning! Only read the below review if you have read the previous novels in the series. Also, there are minor spoilers for this novel in the review as well.

Blood Rites by Jim Butcher – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

bloodrites

Bane of Kings reviews the sixth Dresden Files novel, Blood Rites, by Jim Butcher, published by Orbit Books in the UK, an imprint of Little Brown Publishers.

“Typical Dresden, Butcher does it again with style. Action packed, fast paced, as well as expanding on the background of the Dresden Files series.” ~The Founding Fields

Warning! Because we are this far into the series, I strongly recommend that you read all of the previous Dresden Files novels before reading Blood Rites. It makes sense really, as this is one of those series where you won’t understand what’s going on unless you read the previous books.  

Death Masks by Jim Butcher – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

DeathMasks

Bane of Kings Reviews the fifth novel of the popular Urban Fantasy Dresden Files series published in the UK by Orbit and with the title Death Masks. For those who haven’t read the previous novels in the Dresden Files series, there will be spoilers involved for anybody who hasn’t read the previous books in the series.

“I thought Butcher couldn’t raise the game after the fantastic Summer Knight. I thought wrong. A page-turning novel that will have you hooked right from Page One. If you haven’t read the Dresden Files yet, you don’t know what you’re missing.” ~The Founding Fields

Note: As this review is posted on Christmas Day, I might as well wish a Happy Christmas to everybody on TFF. Hope you got what you wanted :).
