“Not quite up to Kyle’s usual standards but interesting nonetheless, although the art isn’t really to my liking.” ~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

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

The Devil’s Bounty by Sean Black – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

The Devil's Bounty

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews the fourth Ryan Lock novel that can work well as a standalone without prior knowledge of the previous three novels – written by Sean Black. The Devil’s Bounty is a thriller novel, published by Transworld Books in the UK.

“A fun, fast paced read that whilst may not be perfect is certainly pretty promising with some entertaining stuff. Accessible to newcomers as well as readers who have read the previous Ryan Lock novels - this helps make The Devil’s Bounty a fairly solid read. ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
