All New X-Men #11

Interested in finding out the Top 20 comics that you should be looking out for this week from the likes of DC and Marvel, as well as the independents?  Then you’ve come to the right place, for Bane of Kings has the full details. 

The Lone Ranger Omnibus Volume 1 by Brett Matthews – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

The Lone Ranger Vol. 1

Bane of Kings writes  a review of the first Lone Ranger Omnibus by Brett Matthews , published by Dynamite Entertainment with art from Sergio Cariello, Paul Pope and the cover from John Cassiday. Whilst the graphic novel collects 25 issues, my review copy only collected 100 pages (Issues #1-5) , so my review will be based on those issues. 

An awesome western tale that was very entertaining to read, with spectacular artwork.” ~The Founding Fields

Star Wars: The Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral by John Jackson Miller – Advance Review [Bane of Kings]

Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith Spiral

Bane of Kings writes an Advance Review of John Jackson Miller’s latest Star Wars graphic novel, part of The Lost Tribe of the Sith series, entitled Spiral and published by Dark Horse Comics.

“An entertaining Star Wars tale that unfortunately is probably not the best jumping on point to newcomers to this era.” ~The Founding Fields

Quintessence by David Walton – Book Review [Bane of Kings]


Bane of Kings writes a review for Quintessence, a fast paced alternate history novel published by Tor Books, and written by David Walton.

“A thrilling but flawed ride through an alternate Age of Exploration.” ~The Founding Fields

The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu – Advance Review [Bane of Kings]

The Lives of Tao

Bane of Kings writes an Advance Review of The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu, a debut novel published by Angry Robot.

“An awesome, fun read allows for another strong debut of 2013.” ~The Founding Fields

Nathaniel Cade: Red White and Blood by Christopher Farnsworth – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Red, White and Blood

Bane of Kings reviews the third adventure in Christopher Farnsworth’s gripping Nathaniel Cade series, Red White and Blood, published by Hodder in the UK.

“A thrilling ride that proves Farnsworth is a very awesome writer. For those of you who are not on board with this series yet, all you need to know is that a Political Thriller with added vampires and other supernatural creatures make this book one hell of a read.” ~The Founding Fields

Top 20 Comics You Should Be Looking Out For On Wednesday 17 April 2013

Cable and the X-Force #7

Continuing last week’s post, Bane of Kings takes another look at the Top 20 comics that you should be looking out for today, from various publishers.

Comics Round-up 15.04.2013

G.I.Joe Vol.1 IDW

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for April.

“Taking a step back in time from JMS’ Odyssey Vol.1 to read the first post-Infinite Crisis Wonder Woman title proved to be a wise choice, as did going back to IDW’s first reboot of the G.I.Joe franchise. The new version of Spider-man arch-villain Venom proved to be a major disappointment and Zenescope’s first collected volume of their fairy tale reimaginings ended up being more promising than I’d expected.” ~Shadowhawk

A mixed bag from DC with Jeff Lemire’s Green Arrow being spectacular but the first volume of All Star Western falling well short. On the other hand, Marvel hits it out of the park with a superb opening start to the adventures of Miles Morales, the new Ultimate Comics Spider-man.” ~Bane of Kings

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – Advance Review [Bane of Kings]

The 5th Wave

Bane of Kings writes an advance review of the upcoming young adult novel  The 5th Wave, written by Rick Yancey and published by Putnam Juvenile on May 7 in the UK.

“This book is not just the next Hunger Games. This is the book that’s going to run circles around the Hunger Games, and come out on top in pretty much every way. Spectacular, and a high contender for not just the best YA novel of 2013, but one of the best novels of 2013 as well. ~The Founding Fields
