Joining The Dots On The Avengers Assemble Big Bad…

You have been warned. This is a spoiler warning. It is there for a reason, because it concerns The Avengers movie and the comic book Avengers Assemble #3.

Peter David To Adapt Joss Whedon’s X-Men As A Novel

Peter David’s work has repeatedly been compared to that of Joss Whedon. A lightness of touch, a fine hand with witty, stylised dialogue, a tendency to slip contemporary reference, a repeated desire to play against type, and the commonality of combining action, comedy and horror, often at the same time. And I believe they have mutual admiration […]

Review Sunday – Daredevil #12 by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee

Eliot Cole reads Daredevil #12 by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee for Bleeding Cool; There is a horrible, horrible, ‘office word’ called “Synergy” that my friendly proof-reader rightly advises me not to use. So I don’t, but there’s a lot of good blending of complementary talents on Daredevil since Waid’s relaunch last year. Added to […]
