Much like how we adore medieval stories like Game of Thrones, gritty stories like Wrath of the Cursed Part 1 show how much we love these exploits. Whilst Wrath of the Cursed is a fantastical tale, it …

Maybe It’s All Bad: Collateral – Dear John #5 Review

Good things sometimes need an end, and Collateral – Dear John #5 is the end to this brief inspection into the human psyche. Even with this temporary ending (it’s a 12 chapter story), the chapter feels abrupt, making you ask for more. It’s All Bad is not all bad at all. It has its good …

Stories of noble warriors traveling the world have populated many legends. Stories like Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher to the epic of Sun Wukong’s Journey to the West became legends for their odyssey.

Niteside and the Rock #1 Retro Review: A Classic is a Classic

Apart from Cyclone! Comics, I haven’t had the chance to sink my teeth into older Australian comics. A good chunk of the reason for this is they’re hard to find digitally.

Freakin’ Awesome: Freakenstein #1 Review

Metal, guts, gore, and zombies. It’s a good day when a comic book ticks all these boxes for me, and today’s a good day.
