With all the reboots, re-do’s and New 52’s, reader accessibility has been at an all-time high. While this is great for new readers, it is rare these days to see a series maintain its status quo. With issue #170 approaching, Witchblade is one of the few books still on shelves that has successfully carried the same story since 1996 with minimal interruption. While this is great for long term fans, some new readers out there will no doubt feel left in the cold. So why is this upcoming issue so important?
Witchblade #170 is celebrating the return of Ron Marz who wrote the series from issue 80 and up and is responsible for transitioning the series from its 90s roots into the modern era. Marz’s new arc, as well as the gorgeous cover done by Marc Silvestri, is already garnering some attention due to its very Marvel-eque homages. So for those of you who are interested, »

A Two Coreys Halloween: The Essential Horror Movies of Haim and Feldman
On October 29, just two days before Halloween, St. Martin's Press will release the long-awaited Corey Feldman biography Coreyography: A Memoir. It is a must-read for any fan, as it delves deep into the trials and tribulations of this actor's young life in Hollywood. Some of it is funny, some of it is heartbreaking and a great big portion of it is truly scary.
In the book, Feldman talks in great length about his best friend Corey Haim. In the coming weeks, you'll hear a lot about what happened to the two teenagers behind closed doors, and a lot of it's not that pleasant. Instead of dwelling on that in our own review, we'd rather look at the work Haim and Corey Feldman have left behind. Specifically, in honor of the season, their horror movies. The pair met on »

Review Rob Kemp 20 Sep 2013 - 23:00
The first season of Orphan Black finally makes it to UK TV. Here's Rob's cautiously optimistic look at the opening double-bill...
This review contains spoilers.
1.1 Natural Selection & 1.2 Instinct
After achieving its first run in the States in the spring, and having already been commissioned for a second series by BBC America, Orphan Black finally gets aired for British audiences courtesy of BBC Three. Deciding to open with the first two episodes is a wise move as its first episode, albeit interesting in concept, at times lacks pace and needs longer to develop its themes so that viewers will want to come back for a second week. However, it’s worth noting that this is not an edge-of-your-seat, action-orientated science fiction show, but for me, that’s just fine and I’ll explain why.
The show’s concept is simple, Sarah Manning, played by a very capable Tatiana Maslany, »
In a controversial move, DC decided to forego publishing its regular line of books and put out 52 one-shot stories featuring some of its best villains. The one-shots range from extremely popular (Joker, Lex Luthor, Brainiac) to the newer and more obscure (Relic, Shadow Thief). They feature some veteran creators and some who have barely drawn a comic. Each “Villains Month” book will get a decimal point after a regular DC Comic. For example, Joker will feature in Batman 23.1, Riddler will feature in Batman 23.2 etc. The first issue of the new DC event Forever Evil will come out the same month as the villain one-shots. It is a direct follow up to “Trinity War” and will be written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch. There are quite a few “Villains Month” books, but the following comics either have great creative teams, continue a compelling storylines, or are simply intriguing. »

Warning: as an introduction to the show, this feature contains mild character and plot spoilers.
This Sunday sees the return of Showtime drama The Borgias in the Us. The plot is deceptively simple: it’s the story of the Borgia family living their lives in Rome. It just so happens this family’s father is the Pope, and this is the 1490s. It's a different playing field from your average family drama.
That's just the tip of the Borgia iceberg, and here are a few more points to whet your palate while we await the Sunday night premiere.
Because I'm the Pope, That's Why
Since this is, in its way, a family show, we have to start with the trunk of the Borgia »
