Brutal Nature #1, Luciano Saracino, Ariel Olivetti, Translated by Carlos Guzman, IDW Publishing “The jungle smells of green. Of the roar of the jaguars. Of the bellow of plants at birth. Of the song of every bird that breaks the silence..  And of fear..” We open on a vast forest, a veritable sea of greenery,...

German artist Nora Below is active as a musician, a fine artist and as the creator of short black and white comics. Her art is characterised by stark contrast, be it in clashing sounds (as in Crystallize), or in the bright, harsh colors of her oil and acryllic paintings (see Vincent – La Haine, above,...

Jon Davis-Hunt with the cover to Prog 1982 or 1983 there. Bloody hell, it’s a good one, but definitely not the one for this issue. After all, there’s still no sign of Dredd here, this is all Judge Joyce.   Dredd: The Lion’s Den by Michael Carroll, PJ Holden, Adam Brown, Annie Parkhouse  Again, there’s a...

And here we go, with the much trailed, much talked about The Adventures Of John Blake by Philip Pullman AND Fred Foreman.
