We all thrive on stories.We grow up on them, we tell ourselves them, we communicate with them, we shape our lives with them. Stories make the world go around, and stories are nothing without characters. So, a question:Who are the top 5 characters that shaped who you are now? — …

Two and a half months later…

Oh my, has it really been that long since my last post? That really is very bad of me, especially considering I could’ve knocked up a few smaller update posts on my phone during a lunchbreak at work or something. I’ve been in some pretty dark places between then and …

That didn’t feel like a war

So, I recently decided to start reading comics again, maybe get one of the omnibus-style publications every month so as to not go too crazy – and for whatever reason, I started with the Civil War trade-paperback. I got home and read it from cover to cover in one sitting …

Friday update 21/3/14

Hey hey hey, it’s Friday and that means it’s update day! What’s been going on then? Well, I’ve had some of the week off from Asda, which has given me a chance to get some stuff done. Admittedly, it has just been little jobs that could’ve been completed if I …

Friday update 7/2/14

I wrote 6/4/13 all over things yesterday, for some reason I thought that was the date. So, what’s been happening? On the community site I wrote about ilomilo, which was great, and made a video with Lewis where we played X-Men Arcade on the 360 – the video is up …

Street Fighter: The Complete History

Hi. David got me this book a while back now, and I have been wanting to write about it for ages. While the main focus is art from Street Fighter II, the book starts with Street Fighter and before it ends up at Street Fighter IV it covers Street Fighter …

The power of X

I’ll try and keep the spoilers to a minimum, I won’t ruin endings or anything. As I said a few days ago, I felt like a traitor. From what I’ve heard, the Superman movie is good in a Summer blockbuster type way, but not faithful to the source material. Particularly, …
