Hellboy

Bellarius sees what the celebration of Hellboy’s long history has to offer in Mike Mignola’s Hellboy: The First 20 Years.

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

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews the second Bobby Dollar novel, Happy Hour in Hell, written by Tad Williams and published by Hodder in the UK and DAW in the USA. This urban fantasy novel was recieved for review from DAW via NetGalley, and was released on September 3rd.

“An excellent second outing for Bobby Dollar, Tad Williams has crafted an extremely fine book here that once again, is one of my favourites of the year. Readers who loved The Dirty Streets of Heaven will adore Happy Hour in Hell. It’s brilliant, amazing and engrossing.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 15.08.2013

Justice League Dark Volume 2

Shadowhawk brings to you the second comics round-up for August.

“With a creative change, Justice League Dark gets much better in its second volume, while Chuck Dixon’s first Nightwing arc with the hero setting up in Blüdhaven also proves to be quite enjoyable.~Shadowhawk, 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

The Dead of Winter by Lee Collins – Advance Review [Shadowhawk]

TheDeadOfWinter-144dpi

Shadowhawk reviews another Angry Robot 2012 debut title, this one about the Wild West and Vampires and other supernaturals.

“Stunning, mind-blowing, amazing, fan-frikkin-tastic. None of those word can convey just how much I liked The Dead of Winter. I can’t even tell, although I know better, that this novel is a debut and not an author’s best at the peak of his career.” ~The Founding Fields
