If you’ve explored the latest issue of the Geek Syndicate digital magazine you’ve probably read my interview with the publication team that make up Cinebook, so they’ll need no further introduction here. Just in case you haven’t spotted the magazine, here’s a link to take you there. The interview’s on page 28. (Go, go. I’ll still be here when you get back.) Read the rest of this entry »

Cinebook (for the uninitiated) are the Canterbury based ‘champions of the 9th art.’ They’ve been translating and publishing some of the best French and Belgian comics for the English-speaking world for a fair few years now.
I’ve been hooked on several of their series since the Geek Syndicate boys brought them to my attention – so much so that I’ve set up this column to share my discoveries with all you lovely people.

The first Expendables movie was for many, the dream of dreams. The biggest action stars from the 80’s & 90’s finally coming together in one film. Few people thought that it would be possible to top that cast. But then most people aren’t series creator & writer Sylvester Stallone.
Two years later, the original cast are back and this time they have added legends like JCVD & Chuck Norris as well as considerably larger parts for Arnie and Bruce. Expendables 2 is bigger and better than ever and we sat down with the big man himself to talk raising the bar, on set competition and Expendables 3.

In more remake news (is there any other news these days OTHER than remakes?) my head hit my hands when the news was released that not only will the latest version of Bloodsport, the 80′s action fest starring the legendary JCVD will no feature JCVD but it will share pretty much just a title with the original.

Sexy super spy Nikita is back in the second season of the show. She still wants to take the shady espionage group Division down and set right all the wrongs she’s done during her time with them as one of the world’s most dangerous assassins.
The first half of the season really amps up the tension, with Alex and Nikita now working on opposite sides. Alex has promised her services to Division in exchange for information on her father’s killer Sergei Semak and her thirst for revenge drives her throughout the first half of the season, mirroring Nikita’s quest for vengeance against Percy and Division.

I can’t help but have a big cheesy grin on my face as I write this review. I know it’s off-putting, but you’re gonna have to get used to it eventually. I loves me a good bit of old-fashioned war-time adventure and Black Scorpion promises it in spades. 24 pages of glorious art and intrigue set in the same world as Robert Curley’s other wartime ‘supers’ comic The League Of Volunteers. The front cover sets the scene, lovingly recreating the style and colour-palette of the 30′s and 40′s pulp magazines. The titular character even wears a Black Mask fer chrissake! He races recklessly through the mists of No-Man’s Land with gritty determination on his face, twin pistols blazing away at the unseen Hun. His clothing marks him out as different, his mask as something special. The angle at which we see him places us sprawled at his feet looking up in wonder at this hero. Who is this masked man? Who is the Black Scorpion?
What? You’re not sold yet? Sheesh, tough crowd. Ok, lets take a look inside.

When I first picked up Juggernaut I didn’t have particularly high hopes that I would enjoy it. I’ve never been a fan of horror and the blurb didn’t seem particularly inspiring to me so this just didn’t seem to be my sort of book. However, I was in for a pleasant surprise. Juggernaut is an action-packed, edge-of-your seat ride but it’s also intelligent and very well written. I can’t claim to be a convert to horror (I’m still a bit too squeamish to ever really be a fan) but I realised that good writing is enjoyable regardless of genre. Read the rest of this entry »

We take a look at the new game from Digital Frame Studio on the iPhone where you have to navigate dangerously crowded tunnels, pipes and hallways. Think skinny and squeeze into some tight spaces to reach the goal. Read the rest of this entry »

Here we are again back in the Franco-Belgian comic scene courtesy of Cinebook, and what a corker I’ve got for you his time! The set up will be familiar to anyone who’s read, seen or heard of The Bourne Identity, which the unfailingly accurate Wikipedia cites as the direct inspiration for this incredible comic series. A man is washed ashore suffering from acute memory loss. As he tries to unravel the secrets of his past he faces danger, finds he has extraordinary skills and knowledge and, in the process, discovers he is embroiled in conspiracies of the highest level. Played by all sides for all kinds of reasons, he just wants to get to the truth about his past. How he does so is just the beginning of his epic story.
