Shadowhawk takes a look at the top titles from DC to look out for in the holiday month.
Shadowhawk takes a look at one of the recent debut novels from Strange Chemistry, the YA imprint of Angry Robot. This is also the second in my Advent Reviews series for 2013. You can find a full list here.
“Fun. Quirky. Delightful. Recommended.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
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
Shadowhawk presents an exclusive excerpt from Anne Lyle’s third and final Night’s Masque novel, coming soon from Angry Robot Books.
“Its been a long wait for this novel, and this excerpt comes at just the right time to get me excited again. Definitely looking forward to reading the novel next month.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for September.
“This is DC’s big month for the year, Villain’s Month and as expected, there are all sorts of stories here: good ones, bad ones, average ones and everything in between those three.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
“Geoff Johns brings his run on Green Lantern to a superb finish, executing the Third Army arc superbly. Wonder Woman’s third volume however is strong but imperfect, whilst over at Image, East of West Vol. 1 ranks among some of the best comics that I’ve read all year.” ~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
Shadowhawk takes a look at the first novel in the new Forgotten Realms crossover event The Sundering.
“A thoroughly unexciting novel that is all about the setup and little else. An unexpected disappointment.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
