Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

Gotham episode 1: an analysis by: GF Willmetts (TV review).

Show-runner Bruno Heller had to lay down a lot in the opening series of ‘Gotham’. Of primary importance was to show the Waynes’ murder and Bruce’s grief. It also needed to establish Detective James Gordon and the city corruption between the criminal classes and the police. Without being spoiler, it was already known that the […]

DC Comics goes steampunk loopy.

It’s only seven years since The Court of the Air‘s best-selling success pushed steampunk from being a Fan in-joke to a burgeoning literary, cosplay and social movement, but now DC Comics are throwing their weight behind the genre with steampunk covers for large swathes of the New 52 crew. There’s everything from Steampunk Batman to […]

Batman Detective Comics #19 (comic-book review).

I’ll confess from the start that other than the LSH, I’m not fully up to speed with all the changes that DC initiated with ‘The New 52!’ Reading this issue of ‘Batman Detective’ and the references within, the Dark Knight has lost another Robin already and his other Bat-associates aren’t exactly happy with him over […]

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

And the Infographic of the day is this Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down. Of course, Peter Parker could never outspend Bats when it comes to the folding green stuff, but is Bruce Wayne happy, I ask myself? All that misery and speaking in a growly voice. I’d rather be a hip young teenager with a […]

The Batcave Companion by Michael Eury and Michael Kronenberg (book review).

I should say from the start that ‘The Batcave Companion’ isn’t actually a look at the various versions of the Batcave, although there is indeed some reference to it but a look at how the down-in-sales Batman leading up to the early 60s was rejuvenated into the Earth-2 version most of you are familiar with […]

The Dark Knight Rises by Hans Zimmer (album review)

No film this year polarised peoples’ opinion quite like ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. It was the cinematic equivalent of Marmite. Fans and laymen alike slammed it, while at the same time the box office takings grew and grew showing that some people enjoyed it. I fall into the latter camp. I recognised the film’s faults […]

The Art And Making Of The Dark Knight Trilogy by Jody Duncan Jesser and Janine Pourroy.

You know how it is. Those nice people from Abrams & Chronicle send me a selection of books and glancing through them, deciding which to read first, when I got to ‘The Art And Making Of The Dark Knight Trilogy’, I started to read first rather than just look at all the pictures. It then […]
