    Ep.19: Marvel's Darth Vader Series- Your Lack of Faith Will be Renewed

    Today's episode is for my pub buddies who are disheartened by the recent Star Wars films. Here's a summary of some of the things I say about Star Wars graphic novels and particularly Kieron Gillen's and Salvador Larocca's Darth Vader run for Marvel Comics, though far less tipsy than at those times.

    Resident Alien by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse is a fun and engaging series that centres on an alien scientist stranded in small town America. Published by Dark Horse Comics, it's always getting better. I look at the rest of the series today with a full on review of Alien in New York, the latest and best instalment in the series. Also Parkhouse's art is AMAZING!

    Ep.16: Fatale- Murder, Sex, Mystery and the Supernatural Noir

    Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have been around a long time and produced some good stories in their respective fields. Their work on Fatale set a new standard for creator owned productions and reinvented a sub-genre of classic crime noir. If you like a bit of the spooky stuff and a bit of gritty crime, this might be just the ticket to get you into GNs.

    Ep. 15: On A Sunbeam- Life, Love and Finding Yourself with Tillie Walden

    Ep. 15: On A Sunbeam- Life, Love and Finding Yourself with Tillie Walden

    Tillie Walden is a writer who shares her own experiences in her work. Her greatest talent is to engage people emotionally through her artwork and On A Sunbeam is her maturest and most beautiful story yet. I review it and muse on how it has  made me rethink some things.
