Joe Pineapples: Tin Man (A.B.C. Warriors) review










I just cannot refuse another great yarn by the Godfather of British comics, Pat Mills!

Simon Bisley's art looks a little lazy at times, but Clint Langley's art is solid and carries the book.

Potty mouth sewage droid Ro-Jaws and sniper extraordinaire Joe Pineapples are stuck on a feces asteroid or is it a cacasteroid or maybe an assteroid for millions of years.

Since he's marooned for many millennia, Joe takes the time to reflect on his life, and tries to forget a comrade from his checkered past: an influential female that he had fallen for.

It's a story about longing to be human, escaping your fleshy envelope, immortality, free will, identity, losing your mind, love, loss, friendship and the memories that linger inside your soul, even the festering ones that you would like to erase. Lots of things to digest.

Best LOL moments: Ro-Jaws telling Joe that he understands perfectly what ghost Swarf Feegar is saying, Joe asking Ro if he has other voices available in his system, Ro's face when smitten and Ro's stomach getting our duo in dire straits.

Fans will go Bananas for this terrific new chapter of A.B.C. lore.

I give it an 8/10

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane The Original Marvel Years review

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane the dour English Puritan Swashbuckler gets a complete collection of his classic Marvel adventures. Sadly no Dark Horse Comics Guy Davis monster creations inside at all. You get All the pin-ups, adverts, text pieces + All the Kane stories from The Sword of Solomon Kane limited series, Savage Sword of Conan, Conan Saga, Kull and the Barbarians, Marvel Premiere, Marvel Preview, Monsters Unleashed and Dracula Lives. My favourite stories are: A Marvel Team-Up featuring the ectomorph: Kane in his twilight years and the mesomorph: Conan the Barbarian in his prime (The Moon of Skulls II: Death's Dark Riders by Roy Thomas and Colin MacNeil). Kane versus a ghost that kills (Skulls in the Stars by Ralph Reese). Kane versus a Lovecraftian cloud of blood (The Footfalls Within by Don Glut, Will Meugniot and Steve Gan). Kane versus the bat-people (Wings in the Night by Don Glut and David Wenzel). Kane versus vampires/zombies/the walking dead men (The Hills of t

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - The Scorpius Run #1 review

The Enterprise picks up a distress call and moves to investigate. Onboard they find one survivor who tells them she has a debt to pay to a local crime boss. Later, the Enterprise arrives at Celius Prime in an effort to help their passenger. Pike and some of the bridge crew are beamed off. They face the crime boss who tells them the only way out of the dangerous Scorpion sector is by way of the most dangerous race in the galaxy. Pike agrees to the race but members of this crew are placed among various other ships in the race. The idea of a race in space is nothing new. It's not even new in the realms of Star Trek. You have 'The Great Starship Race' from the old Pocket Book line. And thus far, I feel the novel is superior. Though the Pike of Strange New Worlds is laid back I hardly think he would so easily agree to all the terms and obviously laid traps he faces here. six out of ten.
