HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE - THE MUTIES ARE BACK

Advantages: Cool, up-to-date, exciting
Disadvantages: Toned down, sanitised

Much like anything else in life, comic books have to move with the times. If it doesn’t involve virtual reality, tomb raiding or Harry Potter then kids (and most adults) these days just don’t want to know. The coolest comic book characters out ...

The Watchmen: Did it live up to it's reputation?

Advantages: Rich, deep story and three dimensional, imperfect characters.
Disadvantages: Be prepared for a long read. Although you will definitely enjoy it.
