Fan theory: There are three different Batman movie universes

Think about it. In 1989’s Batman, Batman recognises the Joker as the man who kills his parents, therefore upping the stakes and securing Joker’s arch-enemy status with Joker. However in Batman begins, Bruce Wayne’s parents are killed by a homeless man who is clearly not the Joker. This leads to the conclusion that there are…

Spider man/deadpool #1, 2 and 3

What a breath of fresh air. After the Mr. Negative storyline, I was starting to lose faith in this new version of Spider-Man but if this is any indication of what Spider-Man/Deadpool is going to hold, then this will be going down as the best Spider-Man comic this year. It helps propel Spider-Man into the…

Amazing Spider-Man #8 review 

I am so happy this storyline is over and everyone has been reverted to their ‘normal’ selves because I have just been feeling despair over this stupid Mr.Negative storyline that has nothing on the original story from the brand new day storyline. That’s right,  I’m admitting that the largest mistake in comic book history had…

The dark knight returns review

This comic is amazing. The dystopian view of the world in this comic is unbelievably realistic and chilling, and portrays a hardened Batman, Superman and Gotham in general. However, the parts of the book that people seemed to love the most , such as the battle between batman and superman are overrated, in my opinion,…

Uglies by Scott Westerfield review: Sci-Fi, Dystopia

A book that emphasises the deterioration of society’s values in a future controlled by fashion would usually be a complete drag to read, but Scott Westerfield streamlines a concept largely uninteresting to the majority of fans of teen dystopia to a point where the plot seems to forget itself. It then proceeds to forget about…

there will be lies by nick lake review:fantasy and thriller

There will be lies by nick lake: TSBA review An interesting book with characters that fail the story. This book is delivered excellently, the author bringing you to feel what Shelby feels using a carefully conceived style that toys with your emotions. However, lesser characters in the story such as Mark are completely underdeveloped and…

The Amazing-Spider Man #7

Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. Why, Dan Slott? Why do you choose now to disappoint me after all this. After all the blatantly fake hyped up consumerism that got us excited for the new Amazing-Spider Man series, how could you deliver one of the most dissapointing storylines of the decade. First you take an entire host of…

Amazing Spider-Man #5 review

This issue is mediocre at worst. There is nothing bad about it but nothing really stands out to separate this issue from any other issue. For a conclusion, it is fairly dissapointing but it doesn’t discredit anything. Spider-Man’s comic relief is pretty good and the action is nothing special, but it is good. The plot…

Amazing Spider-man #6 review

The transition from the zodiac story to mr.negative is just crappy. There is no transition between the two and the existence of a huge threat to parker industriesand the world isn’t even acknowledged, mockingbird is nowhere to be seen, and the whole dark dagger and light cloak working for mr negative. Spider man is barely…

Black Panther: A nation under our feet

Ta-Neishi Coates is writing a truly groundbreaking comic. His storylines delve into african culture welded together with the superior technology of wakanda, and the philosophical and moral dilemmas that the reader are left with are as powerful as the ender series after book 1. The art is true to the feel of the comic and…

Dark Satanic Mills

This book is truly maddening. If only the characters were half as interesting as the blade-runner level scenery of dystopian London. The concept is great and the art is world class but the insufficient characterisation is disappointing. The characters have a forgettable backstory, forgettable personalities and some scenes feel random, such as the scence where the motorbike…
