Revolution Review

As an environmental advocacy documentary, Rob Stewart's Revolution is pretty standard and simplistic, but it comes with a layer of personal emotion that's rare for this kind of material.

Scarlet #4 Review

Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev deliver another stunning issue of Scarlet. The writing is superb, the art is unbelievable, and what really makes this comic so interesting to read, is its level of realism. From the premise, to the character’s motivations, through to the detailed illustration style, the whole comic feels more like a gritty documentary in the vein of Restrepo or The War Tapes than a fictional bi-monthly book.
