TweetThe Rock’s been making suggestions on Twitter again.
TweetEvery Friday, Stately Beat Mansion invites round a comic creator or two for a cup of tea, complementary Kit Kat, and a chat about their work in The Phoenix. The Phoenix is a UK series which features a range of the best all-ages comics available, from all kinds of wonderful creators – all compiled into [...]
TweetWell I suppose it was only a matter of time before they took over a castle of their own. We should’ve seen this coming. Today the Tower of London revealed that art from the trio of Paul Duffield, Kate Brown and Emma Vieceli had been erected around the base of scaffolding currently in place on [...]
TweetSome spoilers I’ve never liked Captain Britain. For a country which pours scorn on anybody (Stephen Fry aside) with power, he seems like a weird addition to the national psyche. He’s a ticklist of irritating pieces – like all British characters during the 1980s, he’s got a drinking problem; he wears a Union Jack on his shirt; [...]
TweetThis year’s nominees for the Russ Manning award, given out every year during San Diego Comic-Con since 1982, have been announced. The award recognises outstanding new art talent (although this year has re-nominated two of the artists who were on the 2012 shortlist, so I’m not quite sure how that works). Here’s the list of [...]

That line will be increasing in September, as the Eternal Warrior will spin out into his own solo series by Greg Pak and Trevor Hairsine.
TweetYou might be wondering to yourselves, “what exactly is this ‘The Phoenix’ magazine everybody’s been talking about? Well! It’s a weekly all-ages comics magazine, filled with different strips and characters and ideas with every single new issue. But whilst I could just tell you about the magazine in my celebrated blank prose, we figured it’d [...]
TweetAll belts looks small in hindsight now we’ve met Angela, but Valiant’s news of the day – as part of their ‘Summer of Valiant’ campaign – reveals that Bloodshot will be getting a makeover later in the year. Following on from the current Harbinger Wars crossover, the series will be renamed Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps [...]
TweetMarvel have released Joe Quesada’s redesign for Angela, the Neil Gaiman character who is going to be involved in the big twist ending of Age of Ultron. As seen via Entertainment Weekly, Angela has Psylocke’s little ribbons, armour protecting her ankles and elbows, and a ribbon connecting her neck to her sword. We still don’t [...]
