Review: Armourclads #3

“This is another strong issue. I love how this expands out the mythology and detail, pushing things in a new direction. Not to mention there’s the usual great art designs and action scenes. I am intrigued as to where the Armorclads will go next and what lies in the future for the new and improved Ironclads.”

Review: The Harbinger #7

“I did really enjoy this issue. I thought the art was clever and the style really helped get across the trauma of poor Peter being shot in the head. The different elements were all really strongly done. As before my main complaint is I feel we could have more. It’s at least set things up ready for the finale, where I suspect we’ll get something of a major showdown. A solid issue that I think anyone who has read Harbinger up to this point will appreciate.”

Review: Hellcop #6

“This is a really strong start to the second arc. Now the setup has been established it feels like more fun can be had in the universe and this certainly takes some classic concepts like Sasquatch and runs with it. It’s still got a fresh feel but it also has the benefit of strongly established characters and a distinct voice and tone which really works. I’m very much onboard for the next part of the Hellcop ride.”

Review: Shadow Service #11

“This issue had everything I love about Shadow Service, emotion, plot twists, demons, humour and some drama. Honestly this is an excellent return for Shadow Service after its break. I very much enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how that cliff hanger at the end turns out. Plus it had a Randall and Hopkirk reference so that alone makes it A+ for me.”

Review: The Good Asian #10

“This was just a perfect finale to what has been an excellent book. I cannot recommend The Good Asian highly enough. It’s an intriguing crime drama, it’s got great characters, wonderful art in both composition and colour, solid lettering. It has a message and tells a history that’s important. It juggles some really strong themes with twists and turns in the narrative.”

Review: Newburn #5

“So yes this is surprisingly solid issue. Yes, there’s a different setting here and this is a case unlike anything Newburn has done before but that’s good. We get a real insight into Newburn as a person through the writing and art.”

Review: Armorclads #1

“I don’t yet know if Armorclads will win my heart the way pretty much every Valiant book has in the past but I find myself wanting it to. It’s got a lot going for it. If you like anything involving people in mechanised suits fighting alien bugs on a far off world then Armorclads is for you. It’s full of strong potential.”
