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 […]

Press Start – Take Your Time

Ever feel like keeping up with your hobby sometimes gets to be more of a chore than a past time? Not that you don’t enjoy it when you’re doing it, but that you almost have to schedule what you’ll be doing next in order to keep on top of the latest releases? I’ve been getting […]

“Kirisute Gomen” – Trivium – Track of the Day

I had fully intended to do a Christmas tune for this. I’ve been on Christmas overdrive for the past week. I love the season. I’m not one of those degenerates who cheapens the holidays by starting to decorate in November, but as soon as December 1st rolls around, my tree goes up and the little […]

Scales & Scoundrels #1 – Comicphiles

Story by Sebastian Girner Art by Galaad Published by Image Comics The number of fantasy comics in my To Read pile has completely dwindled this past year. Rat Queens went on (and eventually returned from) hiatus. Shutter came to an end, along with a few other short runs I’d been picking up. In fact, by the time Rat Queens did return, it was […]

‘Catgroove’ – Parov Stelar – Track Of The Day

When I’m at work, I usually listen to two genres when I really need to focus: Synthwave, and vintage Jazz or Big Band. Parov Stelar and a growing group of artists are bringing the best parts of these genres together with Electro Swing. After playing through a lot of Fallout, or watching Cowboy Bebop when I was […]

“I Am What I Am” – La Cage Aux Folles – Track of the Day

And what I Am Needs No Excuses So I missed out on a Pride Week Track of the Day, but following Andrew Garfield‘s “coming out” statement yesterday, I felt this was pretty appropriate. (Stay strong Andy. We can start our own support group about our love of musicals and the ways in which Spider-Man’s cinematic […]

Putting the F U in Fun – Press Start

F Is for Friends One big gaming craze has completely passed me by over the last few years; Dark Souls. I’m plenty aware of it. I’ve played a fair bit of the first entry. Still, no matter how hard I try to force myself, I just don’t get the obsession. The stats are nearly impenetrable, […]

Nananananananana BATMAN! Back Issues

This last week we mourned the passing of the great Adam West, a man who has been synonymous with Batman since some of his earliest screen appearances. The usual image we get of the Dark Knight Detective is a brooding, demonic figure, perched above a gothic city skyline. Adam West’s Batman couldn’t possibly be any […]

‘Is She With You?’ – Junkie XL & Hans Zimmer – Track Of The Day

DC’s Wonder Woman opened in cinemas during the week. It’s excellent. It’s a long weekend. You should go see it. Twice. I know I will. Again. It’s every damned bit as good as her theme song would have you believe. So pop your headphones on, lie back on this glorious bank holiday Monday and listen […]
