The Art Of The Epic. 0

Now, THIS is how you write an epic tale.If anyone could teach current writers a thing or two about how to write a story of truly epic proportions, it is Steve Englehart (probably Roger Stern even moreso, but for now, ol' Steve will do). This tale is truly mind boggling in its scope and sheer sense of fun. What really amazed me is that this wasn't even an 'event'. I know, amazing right? It features a breathtaking array of characters from the Marvel Universe, two major villains in Loki and Dormamm...

Forcing Mutants to register a super powered individuals was a great concept to highlight the abuse of power political systems allow governments to wield and no hero, perhaps, highlighted this as much as Captain America. In a period where Steve Rogers no l...

An important issue for an important comic book publisher. 0

2000AD, in its prime has always been a comic of considerable talent. This issue, which comes toward the end of the long running series highest creative Zenith (no pun intended and purely opinion on my part) is an important one and a great read.THE GOODThe good in this particular issue is very, very good indeed.One of the highlights is the prologue for the third phase of Grant Morrisons' ZENITH epic. If you don't know who Grant Morrison is, then you need to head off to his page, check out his inf...
