Star Wars: Han Solo at Star’s End (1979) – Brian Daley

Back in 1979 there wasn’t a lot in the way of Star Wars stories, there definitely wasn’t the Expanded Universe (now the Legends series) or the new canon series of novels. There were Marvel comics which were hokey but still fun, and before The Empire Strikes Back came along we had to use our imagination…

The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla (2003) – Stephen King

Roland Deschain of the line of Eld, and his ka-tet, Jake Chambers, Eddie and Susannah Dean, and Oy the billy-bumbler, take on the role of The Magnificent Seven or The Seven Samurai in the next volume of Stephen King’s opus, the Dark Tower saga. The fifth installment of the fantasy/western/ horror/science fiction series sees the…

Star Wars: Moving Target (2015) – Cecil Castelucci and Jason Fry

  Oh man… it’s almost time for Star Wars: The Force Awakens! I’ve been rationing the new books, as they’ve come out, and so trying to keep pace with them. We all know I wasn’t the biggest fan of Aftermath (though I’ll no doubt read the sequel when it comes along), that I loved Lost…

Issues Vol. 18

It’s a quiet week for me at West End Comics, but Kirk still had a couple of interesting titles to throw my way, so without further ado let’s see what I was reading this week… Wild’s End: The Enemy Within (Boom Comics) issue 1 (of 6), written by Dan Abnett, art and letters by I.N.J….

Issues – Double Digest No.1

Kirk is back from his holidays and had tons for me to catch up on and a few new titles to explore this week at West End Comics! He also had two more Orphan Black Funko figures for me, Cosima and Sarah have joined Helena and Alison…. just waiting on the double dose of Rachel….

Issues Vol. 11

It was a quiet week for me at West End Comics this time, which isn’t a complaint, as there seems to be so many other things going on in my life right now, I wouldn’t be able to give a lot of issues my attention, but 4… I can handle 4! And Kirk had come…

Issues Vol. 9

It’s a big week at West End Comics with a couple new recommendations from Kirk, and a title I had to read, and a continuation of some I’m enjoying. Harrow County (Dark Horse Comics) issue 3, this one continues to be a great book! With a story by Cullen Bunn and arts and letters by…

Issues Vol. 8

This week I’ve got four great books, and 1 miss, though that one was my choice and not endorsed by Kirk at West End Comics, so his status remains untarnished. That being said let’s dive in to see what I was reading last night, and allow me the opportunity, once again, to pop into West…

Blade Runner (1982) – Ridley Scott

Between Alien and Blade Runner, Ridley Scott has created to genre defining classics, both of which close in on the holy grail of cinematic perfection for me. The 101 Sci-Fi Movies brings me a chance to revisit this wonderfully dark sci-fi thriller. I read the book by Philip K. Dick, I bought the Marvel comics…

Dark Horse Comics – Star Wars Issue #1

A Long Time Ago in a time known as the late 70s and early 80s Star Wars was fresh, exciting, and filled with a universe of possibilities. Launching in conjunction with the first movie, Marvel Comics launched a long-running comic series (that were thirty-five cents when they first started), and with issue #7 they started…
