  • Review – I Hate Fairyland (Image Comics)

    IHateFairylandSkottie Young is such a gifted cartoonist that it’s hard to take your eyes off the variant covers that have put him squarely in the public eye. The baby covers for Marvel’s monthlies have practically become their own cottage industry by now, and you can guarantee you’ll not be far away from new ones in the future. Getting to read some actual comics from him is a bit more unusual though (especially since he’s leaving Rocket Raccoon, presumably to focus on this title) and it’s superb to be

  • Review – Huck (Image Comics)

    HuckMark Millar. It’s likely that you’ve got an opinion about his work and it miiiiight not be a very good one. One thing that you can’t deny is that he’s definitely made a big impression on the world of comics and that the place they have in the current pop-culture landscape owes something to him. Civil War followed the summer crossover blueprint and renewed it, creating a whole new landscape for “event comics” in the 00s. The Ultimates basically blueprinted the Marvel Cinematic universe.

  • King of Tokyo - Review

    King of Tokyo box frontWhat's the most dangerous city in the world to live in? There are a lot of factors to consider when weighing the question – crime rates, environmental issues, amount of Swegway Hoverboard owners – but any sensible person will first and foremost consider the number of giant monster attacks in the area. And although New York can claim a fair few, Tokyo easily takes the crown.

    In King of Tokyo, the dice game by Magic The Gathering creator and games design maven Richard Garfield, Tok

  • Betrayal at House on the Hill - Review

    Betrayal at House on the Hill box frontWhy do I keep coming back to this spooky old house on the hill? The house so obviously evil that its façade is a big yellow demonic face? The house where I and the assorted oddballs who venture in with me are routinely cursed, possessed, terrorized or buried alive? The house where someone falls down the coal scuttle into the basement and spends an age trying to find the way out? The house that always turns one of my friends against me, usually putting them in cahoots with an undead s
