The Ballad of Halo Jones: Vol. 3 (1986) – Elliot’s Review

The third and final book in the Halo Jones ballad is also the longest, both in the actual length of the story as well as the length of time that passes in Halo's life within the tale - the first book was just one day, the second took place over one year, this one covers…Read more The Ballad of Halo Jones: Vol. 3 (1986) – Elliot’s Review

The Ballad of Halo Jones: Vol. 2 (1986) – Elliot’s Review

So, after being introduced to Halo Jones and her futuristic world in book one, we move into deep space for book two as we join Halo on a long-haul cruise-ship floating across the void, and this one turns out a little more exciting than the type of cruise advertised in the National Trust magazine. We…Read more The Ballad of Halo Jones: Vol. 2 (1986) – Elliot’s Review

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986) – Review

Beginning, Returning, Rising, Striking Again... Milo here, breakin' faces n' takin' places. The 80s were a good time to be comics fan... and a movies fan... and a music fan. They just seemed to be pretty good in general, actually, not that I'd know. However, let's stick to comics right now, this is a graphic…Read more Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986) – Review

Top Ten Graphic Novels (Redux) – Milo

After re-reading my original Top Ten Graphic Novels, I was startled by how utterly wrong it was. Let's just say I could've done a lot better, which is what I'm doing now, funnily enough. Prepare yourself for copious amount of Batman, so much that the next time you watch The Dark Knight, you'll be sick…Read more Top Ten Graphic Novels (Redux) – Milo

Kick-Ass (2010) – Review

THIS IS THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, NOT THE MOVIE. I have mentioned this before (see Mars Attacks Judge Dredd Review) for it's art but Kick-Ass, the lovechild of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., has so many other strong qualities going for it. The writing is witty yet realistic, the violence, oh the violence, will have…Read more Kick-Ass (2010) – Review

Top Ten Graphic Novels I’ve Read – Milo

As you can probably tell, I am partial to the odd Graphic Novel/Comic every now and then. I also love myself a Top Ten. So what better way to kick off a possible Top Ten series than with one about one of my favourite forms of media and the best it has to offer. 10.…Read more Top Ten Graphic Novels I’ve Read – Milo

Mars Attacks Judge Dredd Compilation (2014) – Review

I'd like to start off by stating that Mars Attacks is one of my favourite films. I love Judge Dredd aswell. A crossover between the two, however, seems like a strange, mismatched monstrosity of an idea, the very thought of which sickens me to the very core. But it works, deliciously. There aren't many notable characters from…Read more Mars Attacks Judge Dredd Compilation (2014) – Review
