Green Arrow Rebirth #1

Benjamin Percy is giving Oliver Queen the shave he deserves. Well, that and some other things. Percy has given our hero a change in personality. Green Arrow is more of a social warrior than playboy. Realising he cares more about his city and its civilians rather than himself, we have a more relateable human side to get on board with. It’s this driving force for Green Arrow Rebirth #1 that makes it such a good read. Continue reading “Green Arrow Rebirth #1”

Superman Rebirth #1

Superman. The Man of Steel. The Kyrptonian. He’s had a rough few years to say the least. The New 52! became convoluted and ended up with too many men wearing the symbol of hope. If you’ve missed the last few years of DC comics, it will take an age to catch you up. Let me say this though, Superman Rebirth #1 picks up from where the New 52! left off and without giving anything away, you should read this issue with an open mind. Continue reading “Superman Rebirth #1”

30th Anniversary The Transformers: The Movie

In 1986, and after 2 successful series of selling Transformers to kids all around the world, toy company Hasbro took the decision to refresh its line of plastic robots. The behemoth decided to create a motion picture to do this. Why? Because it’s the 1980s. Nothing makes sense. With one of the worst titles of a mainstream film, The Transformers: The Movie released to the world. It wasn’t the most successful, but the people that did see the film went crazy.

Led by Jim Lee, Scott Snyder, and Klaus Janson the aim of these lessons is to find the next generation to carry on the DC legacy. After months of toil, here is the DC New Talent Showcase one-shot.

DC Universe Rebirth #1

In 2011, DC comics did the unthinkable. They scrapped over 70 years of comic book history and started again. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the thousands of characters were repackaged under “The New 52!” banner. Fans were not happy. Like the voices of Alderaan crying out in terror and suddenly being silenced, the legacy was gone. 5 years later, DC recognised something needed to change. DC Comics needed a Rebirth. Continue reading “DC Universe Rebirth #1”

UNO The Video Game

The game of UNO is banned in my house. Thinking about it, all card and board games are banned after the Monopoly incident of 2013. I won’t go into too much detail but let’s say there were tears, frightened cats and a small fire to deal with. Anyway, moving swiftly on… I was delighted to hear that Ubisoft has decided to revamp the virtual version of Uno. Previously, it was a breakout hit of the Xbox 360, it has now been updated and unleashed on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC. Continue reading “UNO The Video Game”
