Comic Book Review: Old Haunts #2

Continuing the first issue’s Michael Mann-esque ghostly crime tale, issue two packs in quite a lot of story into its pages.

Here we are heading towards Halloween and even I – legendary scaredy cat that I am – seem to have been looking at (and writing about!) more scary stuff than I can usually handle, […]

Marvel Zombies

Be warned: spoilers abound for lots of different series, though they’ve been around for quite some time now! I’ve always had a fascination with zombies. It started way before I […]
