I love Star Wars, particularly the original trilogy, when Super Star Wars was released in 1992 I went nuts for it.

I was a little to young to fully appreciate Elite when I first encountered it, released on September the 20th on 1984, it wouldn’t be until I was the age of 7 until I had a glimpse at it’s wireframe graphics.

It’s […]Read more "Super Ghouls N’ Ghosts – A SNES Classic"

His tall presence and beautiful costume immediately evokes the memory of Jon Pertwee and he’s shocked cast members who worked in that era of Doctor Who with his authenticity. Cosplay is […]Read more "Spotlight on Scott Goodman : Third Doctor Cosplayer"
This issue has been touted as one of the most controversial of Batman’s whole run. It’s not due to the deep and wild psychological narrative which weaves through it’s panels. It’s not due of the fact that the Joker is dead and may have been finished by the Dark Knights own hands. Rather it’s due […]Read more "Batman Damned #1"
