Comic Book Review: Aquila: Blood of the Iceni

2000AD has a reputation for hard-hitting, violent stories that pull no punches, though these are often dressed up in fantasy or futuristic clothes.

Comic Book Review: The Ballad of Halo Jones: Volume 2

Having recently reviewed the first volume of Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s classic series, it was only a matter of time before I reacquainted myself with the continuing chronicles of Halo Jones – and, as with the first volume, it’s been an absolute joy to rediscover the series and experience it all over again, several decades later.
