Book Review – Complex 90 May27

Book Review – ...

Earlier this month, we had the distinct pleasure of speaking at length with author Max Allan Collins, crime fiction writer extraordinaire and hand-picked successor of the late, great Mickey Spillane.  Within the scope of that interview, I mentioned that Spillane’s Mike Hammer...

Book Review – The Simon & Kirby Library: Science Fiction May27

Book Review – ...

Joe Simon.  Jack Kirby.  Each man a giant in the world of comics, this match-up is as legendary as Martin and Lewis, Tracy and Hepburn, or Lennon and McCartney.  If you just thought “who?” to any of these names amongst names, proceed directly to Google or...

Book Review: Superna...

I’ll admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of tie-in novels.  Despite having read my share of them for the site already, more often than not, these type of books make me feel like they’re dragging an episode out.  Worse yet, there are times when it becomes...

Book Review – The Art of Epic May12

Book Review – ...

As someone who has spent a lifetime studying art and animation, one of the greatest joys I have in life is to get a peek behind the curtain at the creative process.  When our friends at Titan Books offered up The Art of Epic for review, I jumped at the chance. From the publisher: From...

Book Review – Blaylock’s Homunculus and Lord Kelvin’s Machine May05

Book Review – ...

Way back at the beginning of the year, which I realize is ancient history where the internet is concerned, I reviewed James P. Blaylock’s return-to-steampunk novel, The Aylesford Skull.  I said at the time that this was part of a series, and that while each volume was standalone,...

Review: Plague Natio...

In this day and age, we are inundated with zombie stories. In movies, TV, books, and comics the shambling (sometimes running) dead chase us until we find ourselves looking it over and seeing if it tickles our fancy. In this case, Titan Books graciously sent us Plague Nation by Dana...

Book Review – Peter Cushing: A Life in Film Apr09

Book Review – ...

I’ve said it many times, and I’ll never stop reminding people: my first memory of life is seeing Star Wars opening day on the big screen.  That little movie informed me of a great many things that I would later go on to discover, which includes several points along the...

Book Review – Web of the City Apr07

Book Review – ...

When Harlan Ellison speaks, you should listen.  I certainly do.  When a man wins 10 Hugos and an honorary doctorate, trust that he earned them and knows what he’s talking about.  In the last 50 years, a number of authors have been on the cutting edge of science...

Book Review – Jago Mar30

Book Review – ...

If you haven’t seen my review already, I am a big fan of author Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula series, through which I discovered his Warhammer titles dealing with a previous version of the Geneviève character that upstages the Anno Dracula line.  I am supremely...

Book Review – The Wind Whales of Ishmael Mar24

Book Review – ...

Once more, the good people at Titan Books graciously offer their wares for us to review, and once more I find myself reading something I probably wouldn’t have picked up on my own.  I love this sort of thing, because it’s exactly this situation that encourages me to expand...

Book Review – Modesty Blaise: The Girl in the Iron Mask Mar17

Book Review – ...

1963 saw a boom in the British spy genre after James Bond hit the big screen the year before in Dr. No.  As a result, it wasn’t just the spies who took center stage; a number of creations with a criminal past also lit up the intrigue of the time.  One of the standout...

Artist Roman Dirge N...

This morning, we received word from our friends at Titan Books that artist/creator Roman Dirge is in the hospital following a hit and run accident a few days ago.  Dirge’s family and friends have set up a medical fund to help with the bill, and Titan is spreading the...

Book Review – Everybody Loves Tank Girl Feb27

Book Review – ...

This might be the most difficult review I’ve written to date.  It’s not because the material is bad, but it’s because periodically I like to challenge myself with something so far beyond my normal wheelhouse that it might as well be alien to me.  That’s...

Book Review: Dead Space: Liberation Feb18

Book Review: Dead Sp...

To wrap up the last of the Dead Space graphic novels, here is the review on Dead Space: Liberation. This one sees Christopher Shy return as the artist and Ian Edington take over the writing duties. This book takes place in between the events of Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3. I’m...

Book Review: Dead Space: Salvage Feb17

Book Review: Dead Sp...

Let’s delve once more into the Dead Space Universe with Dead Space: Salvage. This entry was written by Antony Johnston and the art was done by Christopher Shy. This was much shorter to read than the first graphic novel of this series, and instead picks up in the middle of the events...

Book Review: Dead Space (2008) Feb14

Book Review: Dead Sp...

Thanks to the kindness of Titan Books, I’ve been given the chance to read Dead Space  by Antony Johnston, and art by Ben Templesmith.   This graphic novel is a prequel to the video game of the same name, a film called Dead Space: Downfall, and the Wii entry, Dead...

Whenever I post a review about a book or, as in this case, an anthology of short stories that deals with beloved characters or settings, I like to remind those who read these reviews that I am an incredibly harsh critic when it comes to those characters with whom I’m intimately familiar...

Book Review: Warlord of the Air Jan28

Book Review: Warlord...

One of the things I’m coming to respect about Titan Books is that they’re reprinting some of the lost genre greats.  Granted, I wouldn’t exactly refer to Michael Moorcock as “lost,” but some of his works are a little harder to find sometimes since...

Book Review – The Aylesford Skull Jan08

SciFiFX celebrates the release of author James P. Blaylock‘s first full length steampunk novel in 20 years! For the uninitiated, James P. Blaylock is considered to be one of the founding fathers of steampunk, along with Tim Powers and K. W. Jeter, all three of whom are incredibly...

If you are a Tarzan fan, or even if you’re not, then I want to recommend Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration to you! Author (and Edgar Rice Burroughs expert) Scott Tracy Griffin has brought forth a labor of love for fans and newbies alike to enjoy. What makes it amazing is that it’s...
