Tom’s Recent Updates

Hey Ladies! by Michelle Markowitz
"sledgehammer like subtlety

I finished this book out of... boredom? Self-spite? I’m not sure. I do know that I was gritting my teeth the whole time. This isn’t satire (which usually has an amount of elegance about it) as much as it is misogynistic f..." Read more of this review »

Marvel Masterworks by Stan Lee
Rate this book
Clear rating
The pulse pounding saga of men trapped creating a cash-in spy comic despite running out of ideas halfway through their first story. The genuinely sinister fanatics of HYDRA lose their menace when the story details into a stock Stan Lee family drama, ...more

Little Carp by Marzena Sowa
Rate this book
Clear rating
Really enjoyable set of simple autobiographical comics about growing up and getting by in 80s Poland. Perhaps oddly, the mix of improvised games, limited resources, family life and ritual and the strong role of religion means Marza most reminds me of ...more

Royal City, Vol. 1 by Jeff Lemire
Rate this book
Clear rating
A middle-American family saga with the fortune (or misfortune) to come out just when getting into the head of middle America and its decline seemed an urgent task. Not that Royal City is heavy on the politics - one storyline tackles rust-belt economi ...more

Incredible Hulk by Bill Mantlo

Clear rating
In this era of carefully measured out story beats it’s refreshing to read something as incompetent as this. Technically speaking, that is: characters vanish, plot points dangle, arcs are resolved with graceless speed, and the impatience of Bill Mantl ...more

Rasputin by Mike Mignola
Rate this book
Clear rating
We know what to expect from a Roberson scripted Mignolaverse book by now - lots of fannish pottering about in the universe’s backmatter, in this case taking a look at what Rasputin and his cadre of Nazis were getting up to before Hellboy came along. ...more

X-Men Blue, Vol. 0 by Steven T. Seagle
Rate this book
Clear rating
The X-Men enjoyed a remarkable run as an evolving comics property - a franchise with an enviable (for licensers) track record of breaking in new characters who became mainstays of the books. But all good things come to an end. Before the late-90s run ...more
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
"I think I would have rather liked this as a kid, though I probably would have had issue with the large number of quirky characters with twee names (the Missus's). But looking at it now, with the exception of its central idea (tesseracting, folding..." Read more of this review »
M.A.C.H. 1 by Pat Mills
"Finally, a collection for 2000AD's Six Million Dollar Man knock-off, though there was always a little Deathlok too in the way he'd argue with the computer in his brain. I always loved that such a gung-ho strip starred someone supposedly empowered..." Read more of this review »

X-Men by John Byrne
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Hidden Years is John Byrne's attempt to answer the question that's bedeviled a huge number of X-Men writers since Chris Claremont first left the comic - how might a "back to basics" X-Men story work? In 1999 the X-Men, chaos, complexity and all w ...more
