“Where this story is strong is in our introduction to of Antioch, a king from another continent ready to throw down with anyone who stands in his path to justice.”
“The family dramas take more of a centre stage and the characters’ background is worked in more confidently.”
“This is a solid return for Bloodshot. Surprisingly there is a lot of character work going on. Don’t get me wrong it’s also interesting and action packed but it feels like the mature rating is for more than that.”
“As always Time Before Time expands out the future, and the past, in interesting directions”
“A theme that has been running through both issues so far is that a vengeful justice, however just, is always bittersweet.”
“This issue took me by surprise with how deep and interesting it is. I never thought I’d see a villain origin story retold with this much interest and depth in a Lego comic but here we are.”
“…an exciting ride with a lot of action, tension and of course a touch of humour.”
“It’s our August Round-Up! Angela, Matt and Zach are getting together to discuss four first issues from the month just gone!”
After threatening it last week Angela and Zach are teaming up again to discuss arguably the least popular Valiant mini-series of all time
Angela and Zach are teaming up to discuss the first volume of Armorclads from Valiant!
If you like time travel stories with interesting, flawed, real feeling characters with great art then you will enjoy G.I.L.T.
This was a very solid second issue that really builds on the first in the best ways. It gives us some answers, deepens the lore a bit more and we learn more about the main nemesis. Still there’s some twists and turns as well and a few surprises along the way. Now the main set up is out of the way I look forward to seeing how our heroes move forward as they seek to defeat the power of The Book of Shadows.
“That’s what I love most about Quests Aside, the characters. Those characters who are likeable yet have have flaws and are interesting and all have their own struggles. Quests Aside is the focal point for their stories and they are told so well.”
“Ultimately, Public Domain #2 might not have the impact and variety of locations seen in the first issue but it’s necessary for what is coming up.”
“With humour, solid character work, adventure and more than a little bit of gore Barbaric is back and doing what it does best.”
“Both these issues delve into the world in new and exciting ways and I am really enjoying how Shadow Service is developing. Great stuff.”
