They say comic book characters never die. In the case of (almost) all, this is indeed true, certainly when looking at the big 2. However, while many characters have long, established histories, some do disappear into obscurity. This week, however, we take a look at Titan Comics recent revival of Fighting American, a character created in response to Captain America by his own legendary creators; Joe Simon and Jack ‘King’ Kirby.

Balancing creativity and parenting is no easy task, and Richy K Chandler explores the challenges in When Are You Going To Get A Proper Job?, the new graphic novel from Singing Dragon. Part autobiographical story and part self help book, it’s a fantastic mix of enjoyable and engaging story and genuinely useful advice on making the most of your time if you’re an artist or creative. So take a look and see if it inspires your inner muse!

This debut graphic novel from Gluepot Books is not the kind of book you might expect when you hear that it is about one man and his dog in rural Yorkshire. Mann’s Best Friend is the creation of sisterly duo Sophie and Scarlett Rickard and thanks to it’s charming story telling and relatable characters has the feel of a classic British graphic novel for the ages, rather than a twee man and his mutt adventure.

This week, the British weather took a turn for the chilly as we Pipedreamers were gifted a good bit of snow. As a result, it would be remiss of us to not let this weather influence our next review as we take a look at the first three issues of Nick Goode and Harry Hughes’ Snow: The Dawn, a new superhero book set in a future London setting. Is this a new sleeper hit of a comic or will it be left out in the cold?
