Milo, aka “Bane of Kings” reviews The Remaining by D.J. Molles, the first in the zombie series of the same name that was initially self-published in 2012, and has now been picked up by a traditional publisher – Orbit Books. This is currently available to buy in both the USA and the UK. 

“A fun, action packed read that although suffers from a poor main character, is for the most part, entertaining and enjoyable – and allows for a great new take on zombies.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 02.08.2013

Before Watchmen Minutemen Silk Spectre

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

“The rebooted Aphrodite IX proves to be great while the first two issues of musician Max Bemis’ Polarity from Boom Studios manage to astound spectacularly. And back in superhero-land, Greg Pak’s first two issues of Batman/Superman disappoint like none other, even though Ray Fawkes’ Trinity War tie-in second issue of Pandora proves to be a spectacular issue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Before Watchmen manages to both excel and disappoint, whilst Scott Snyder excels in the Pre-New 52 era, and Green Hornet Year One is a much better origin story for the character than the recent film.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
