Comic Review: Resurrected #5

Resurrected is back for its fifth installment which yet again explored new and interesting ideas resulting in the issue having its fair share of twists and turns all whilst wrapping up the story with a satisfying conclusion and still somehow finding room for some gripping action with the first half of the issue having a spy-thriller type vibe to it.

Comic Review: Ax-Man #1

In a world plagued with sickness, disease, and danger, it’s down to Jason, one of many Ax-Men, a group of skilled hitmen,  who swaps his doctor’s coat and scalpel for a holster and body armor who is tasked with hunting down and eliminating anyone unfortunate enough to be infected with a mysterious deadly virus in an attempt to stop its spread and save what remains of humanity.

Comic Review: Assassin’s Creed: Last Descendeants Locus Issues 1-4

Assassin’s Creed: Locus is a short 4 part comic which acts as a tie-in for 2015’s Syndicate between the main game and Jack The Ripper DLC. Like most entries in the franchise, this comic is a mixed bag. Over its 4 issues, there’s a good few moments sprinkled throughout such as fantastic action that perfectly encapsulated the games own combat, a couple of decent laughs and a fair bit of fan service which if you enjoyed Syndicate you’ll appreciate. That being said there are also some major issues I had with the comic which whilst annoying thankfully don’t affect the

Comic Review: “THE LIST”

Looking for something to get you in the holiday mood in the run-up to Christmas? Well, don’t you worry I have found a fantastically festive Christmas comic which is chocked full of elves, Santas, presents, and all the gore and action of a Liam Neeson movie. This one might take a bit of explaining but much like Die-Hard, The List does manage to capture that essential feeling of Christmas but in its own action-packed way, with the right balance of sophisticated self-aware humor to keep it lighthearted and over-the-top action to scratch that adventurous itch. Let’s get into this. Plot

Identity Stunt is back with its biggest issue for its grand finale and it does not disappoint in terms of action, emotion, thrills, spills and even shocking moments. There’s a lot to break down here but I’ll try my best to avoid spoilers because Sam Nasser’s ultimate showdown is something I highly recommend you pick up and read for yourself. Identity Stunt goes all out in its epic climax and it results in the most thrilling and gripping issue of this entire series to date. Plot Identity Stunt has always been able to capture that classic 80’s action flick style

Comic Review: Resurrected #4

It’s been a while but Resurrected is back with an all-new issue that really takes the fight between the natives of Austrailia and the Drexler Corporation to a whole new level. This is easily the most action-packed issue of the series so far and it doesn’t skip on those hard-hitting emotional moments either. Despite, having some very minor pacing issue’s Resurrected #4 elevates the series in ways previous issues never could and still continues to showcase that very realistic tone that the series has owned since day one. Plot I’ll avoid spoilers as best I can here but Resurrected’s latest
