Wolfenstein is one of the most venerable names in the computer (video) game industry, it’s sometimes labelled as the grandfather of all first person shooter game genres, and alongside the Doom label, has perhaps seen more attempts at reboots than others. Despite a few lackluster attempts, ID software brought the franchise back in 2014’s memorable […]Read more "Wolfenstein Vol 1: Descent into Madness"
It’s very difficult to be unique in an industry which is obsessed with churning out mono-genre games by the truck load each year, big name franchises with hype and consumer expectation abound during the winter months for the next squad shooter or the next instalment of a football franchise.

Firstly let me say how much love I have for this character, Ro Jaws is an anti-authoritarian, anarchic character from Ro-Busters, Nemesis the Warlock and the ABC Warriors narratives. But in this article, which isn’t really about him, he’s used as a more sophisticated Tharg figure, he’s the host of the mighty Robotales written by […]Read more "Anarchic One Shot Works of Genius – Ro Jaws’ Robotales from 2000AD"
I loved the film Robocop 2, but I knew there was a better story in there somewhere, in amongst the fantastic ideas, there was just a lack of execution. Avatar comics remedied this by facilitating Frank Miller’s original script to be brought to print with some amazingly visceral illustrations. At the time of Robocop 2, […]Read more "Stand Up Please for the Real Robocop 2!"
