Iron-Fist-Living-Weapon-01

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first issue of a new Iron Fist series, featuring one of Marvel’s most well-known street heroes.

A promising start to what is hopefully a long running series.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Not recommended.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Aquaman and The Others #1 – Friday Flash Review

Aquaman and the Others 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of a new series that focuses on the Geoff Johns-created superhero team The Others.

“I remain unimpressed. But at least this was a better issue than Jurgens’ work on Superman for New 52.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

It’s good to see Aquaman get a second ongoing series but Jurgens unfortunately can only deliver an average debut.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

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

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Ancillary Justice

Shadowhawk reviews one of the most talked-about debuts of 2013, a sci-fi grand adventure about starship AIs and revenge.

“A promising book that never takes off, has serious pacing issues and a protagonist who is extremely confusing.” ~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

All Is Fair by Emma Newman – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

All Is Fair

Shadowhawk reviews the third and final novel in the Split Worlds trilogy.

“Another great read set in the Split Worlds which provides closure to many of the subplots that have run through the trilogy, and is as enjoyable a read as the previous two novels.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Avengers Undercover #1 – Friday Flash Review

Avengers Undercover 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at another new #1 from Marvel, part of its All-New Marvel NOW! launch initiative.

“A superhero comic series that deals with PTSD and survivor’s guilt and features young, teenage superheroes? Well that’s unique, certainly, in my experience. I think I’ll be sticking with this one for a bit. ” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

A great first issue that although not perfect, does lay the groundwork for a very interesting series with some great character development~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

The Rose and The Thorn by Michael J. Sullivan – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

The Rose and the Thorn

Shadowhawk takes a look at the second novel in the Riyria Chronicles prequel series to Michael J. Sullivan’s bestselling Riyria Revelations series.

“A good, fast read but not quite as satisfying as its predecessor.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Serenity: Leaves On The Wind #2 – Friday Flash Review

Serenity - Leaves on the Wind 02

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the second issue of the latest Firefly comic, set after the events of the movie Serenity.

An awesome second outing for Zack Whedon and company. Whilst Serenity: Leaves on the Wind may not see the return of the Firefly crew on screen, it’s the next best thing.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Bored and uninterested. That’s all I can think of really.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Star Wars: Maul – Lockdown by Joe Schreiber – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

maul-lockdown

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers Joe Schreiber’s Maul, the latest Star Wars tie-in novel focusing on the fan-favourite Sith character, Darth Maul – published by Del Ray Books and set before the events of the first Star Wars movie from the prequel trilogy, The Phantom Menace.

“A flawed but fun Star Wars novel, Joe Schreiber proves that he isn’t a one-trick pony and doesn’t have to rely on Zombie Stomtroopers to make Lockdown an entertaining read – but just don’t go in expecting a perfect one as the end result is quickly forgettable and not as excellent as it could have been.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
