Comic Book Review: Battle Special (2020)

The Battle special – or, as it seems to be called on the cover, the Battle ‘of Britain’ Special – is the latest in Rebellion’s series of specials to revive classic British comics. Battle Picture Weekly went through a number of name changes in its original run from 1975-1988, at which point it merged with Eagle. Battle Action, Battle Action […]

Music Review: Chromeo – Quarantine Casanova EP

I first became aware of cheeky retro-electro funk duo Chromeo in 2007 at a British festival called The Big Chill. For a number of years back then, I used to attend that particular festival with a group of close friends; it was small but grew to a decent enough size that it attracted some phenomenal acts – and it was […]

Comment: Next Generation Nerves?

Here we are, supposedly just a few months away from the launch of PS5 and Xbox One Series X – yet there’s still no indication of what price they’re going to launch at or any similar details for the games that will be accompanying each console’s launch.

O Stadia, Where Art Thou?

Hands up if you remembered that Google launched a console-less video game streaming service last year? I’d forgive you if you weren’t able to recall that; it seems that those responsible for Stadia’s muted launch weren’t interested in promoting it either, even on launch day. There’s been the odd snippet of news here and there, as well as the update […]

So long, 2019 – and thank you!

Another year has passed and I’m pleased with the progress that I’ve made. I’ve maintained the dramatic weight loss that I achieved last year (which I wrote about here), I created a Twitter account – and have had met some absolutely amazing people because of it – and I’ve come so far with my writing, which is most definitely the […]

Chains of Fury – Preview

It’s not often that a game’s press release is brought to my attention and immediately grabs me with such a striking and instantly appealing visual style, but Chains of Fury has done just that. With a comic book style that looks incredibly close to the aesthetic of artists such as Mike Mignola – clean, colourful and with great, copius use […]
