It’s Timecop meets Crocodile Dundee in our Kickstarter of the Week this week, as Kris Carter of Lou Scannon fame brings his time-traveling Australian detective Bruce Outback to the crowd-funding platform! You can view the hilarious video below (and make sure to watch right to the end) and pledge you support for them here.
“It’s Lord of the Rings meets Lumberjanes” is the lazy reviewers cliche that we’re going to use to describe Christine Larsen’s fantasy funny book Orcs. But this is more than just a shameless attempt to get a pull quote on the back of a future issue, it’s actually a pretty accurate summation, so bear with us!
Spider-Man and Silk aren’t necessarily getting along right now, but that won’t stop them from having to work together when they’re accidentally thrown back in time to just before they got their powers! Experience their adventure in all the glory of Marvel’s Infinite format as we take a fantastic first look at The Amazing Spider-Man & Silk: The Spider(Fly) Effect #1 out today!
Dark Horse’s Neverboy #1 is the tale of a drugged up imaginary friend who manages to remain in the real world. From the fevered imagination of Killjoys co-creator Shaun Simon, Neverboy’s psychedelic cover courtesy of Tyler Jenkins gives us a fantastic snapshot of the dark and surreal world on offer in this twisted fantasy adventure.
One of our favourite comic book cliches is the super-powerful hero or villain who is so powerful they manage to destroy the very masthead of the comic they are starring in. We’ve seen it with everyone from the Hulk to the Thing, but this week’s Amazing X-Men #17 from Marvel Comics is another great example as the all-powerful Juggernaut wreaks havoc!
In this age of gritty hyper-realistic post-modern superheroes, it’s easy to forget the pure and simple fun that reading comics should give a reader. Madman creator Mike Allred has breathed new life into the adventures of Norrin Rad by reverting it to it’s triply 60s psychedelic roots and that’s why we love this week’s Silver Surfer #9 cover.
Once upon a time, to go to a comic book convention was an expensive daydream for many UK fans due to them being exclusively an American event. However, thanks to events like the London Super Comic Convention, Thought Bubble and smaller shows like the Melksham and Leamington Cons, it has become a reality for UK comics fans. The latest to join this every growing roster is the True Believers Comic Festival held at Cheltenham Race Course, on February 7th. But was it a thoroughbred, or just a show pony?
Todd McFarlane’s Spawn has come a long way since its first issue 20 years ago helped launch the fledgling image comics. 250 issues later and Spawn #250 is closing in on Dave Sim’s record for longest run of an indie comic and to celebrate this milestone original Hellspawn Al Simmons is about to return the cape and chains.
