About 

Living in Australia, my life is probably quite like yours, except hotter and with more dangerous animals. I've had a love of comics for the last 20 years, which is almost exactly two thirds of my life, and very little else has been with me that long. I fancy myself as a writer, but I fancy myself as many things that I'm not all that good at, so go figure. I have strong opinions but I love to discuss things, so please comment, cos I'd love to hear what you think of what I think.

Somehow, over the last five or so years, Marvel have built up a proper franchise around Spider-Man and I never really noticed. Partly that’s because I don’t read any Spidey books, but also because, as...

Trapped deep inside the Earth, our heroic trio find themselves surrounded by the disgusting minions of The Moleman, Dr Molekevic. Will the Fantastic Three be enough to thwart his diabolical schemes? And who actually caused...

This issue of Ultimate Fantastic Four has two things on the cover that don’t appear in the book. One of them is Mark Millar, who appears as one of the creators, but who isn’t credited...

We’re four issues in and, to be honest, I thought I’d get further before I was horrified at something Mark Millar had his name on. For starters, it’s got Brian Michael Bendis as co-writer. Then,...

Last week I mentioned how the Ultimate Fantastic Four books seemed at once to be aimed at everyone and no one. The story is reliant on the reader already knowing where these characters end up,...

Ok, so, this is gonna get a little biographical. I was very excited by the Ultimate line back in the early 2000’s. It got me back into comics, to be honest. Living in Australia had...

Eleven years ago this month, Marvel were riding high on the success of their “Ultimate” comics line. It was a new universe, stripped bare of its continuity, and it was pretty much the most popular...
