Nintendo Direct At E3

There had already been plenty of things going on in the rumour mill before Nintendo’s E3 presentation this year. From potential new Smash fighters to a portable version of Witcher 3, there were all sorts of whisperings going on. On top of that, there have been plenty of previously teased games that were yet to […]

Stan Lee’s 3 Most Iconic Creations

With the sad passing of comicbook legend Stan Lee on Monday, I’d be remiss not to revisit some of his work in today’s Backlog. I was going to cover Rick Remender’s run on Fantastic Four and the end of Dan Slott’s run on The Amazing Spider-Man so it won’t be a massive jump from the original plan. It’s kinda strange to think that […]

Pull List – Feminist Cats And Russian Monks

I feel like every time I’ve had to write about my current pull list, I’ve been months behind on my reading. Usually I end up grabbing a few new books at random and using it as an opportunity to read something I otherwise wouldn’t have. I decided to check out a couple of books this […]

Spider-Man – Review

Spider-Man is finally here. After a long, long, long string of not awful, but just above average at best interpretations, the trepidation has been immense. Would this be just another funnish title for the stack, or could it be something more? Could it be greater? With Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham series coming to a close after […]

Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man – Backlog

I’ve been doing alright at keeping up with my comic backlog lately. In some cases that means I’m now less than a year behind the rest of the world. Incredible, I know. In the run up to Spider-Man launching on PS4, I was making a more concerted effort to keep up with the various Spider-Family […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Screen Savers

In all honesty, I am probably the most forgiving person when it comes to movies. If I sit down to watch a movie, I want to enjoy it. As a result I tend to latch onto the little things I did enjoy and minimize the things I didn’t. That’s partly why I don’t write movie […]

Spider-Man Theme – Michael Bublé

The new Spider-Man game launches on PS4 this Friday. I don’t remember when I was last this hyped for a game. Actually, I do, it was Breath of the Wild, but that was different because I played it prior to launch and knew it was gonna be stellar. This hype comes with that accompanying apprehension […]

Pull List – Gideon Falls #1

Story by Jeff Lemire Pencils by Andrea Sorrentino Colours by Dave Stewart Published by Image Comics Over the past few months my pull list has been a fiasco. Either due to supplier issues, or other little hiccups I’ve ended up with massive gaps and a load of missing #1s. As a result, my comic reading […]
