5.0 out of 5 stars A bug-infested collection of entertaining and revolting facts about what really lives in our houses, and on us, 25 Nov 2014
This 80-page book is a bug-infested collection of entertaining and revolting facts about what really lives in our houses, and on us.

The Contents are -
P04: Welcome to the House of Horrors!
P14: What’s lurking in your living room?
P22: What’s squirming on your skin?
P28: Lice, fleas and pesky pets
P36: What’s hiding in your home?
P44: What’s crawling in your kitchen?
P52: Creepy cockroaches and other pantry pests
P60: What’s burping in your bathroom?
P68: What’s snoozing in your bed?
P76: How horrible is your home?
P78: Gruesome Glossary
P80: Horrible Index

Each page is packed with colourful and entertaining cartoons illustrating the many (similarly entertaining) facts and figures that are splattered across the pages. This will be fascinating for most children and strong-stomached adults. People with nervous dispositions should avoid it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A colourful and informative book designed to get children interested in gardening, 25 Nov 2014
This is an 80-page colourful and informative book designed to get children interested in gardening. This will probably fascinate children and adult beginners alike, and would be a good way to get children interested in gardening. Each page is packed with colourful illustrations, and the chapters explain simply how plants work, how to plant and cultivate, and even what to do hen you have grown them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent illustrated introduction to the life and work of Michael Faraday, 25 Nov 2014
This 48-page book is an excellent illustrated introduction to the life and work of Michael Faraday, aimed at schoolchildren, though suitable for interested adults. Every page is illustrated, with an excellent mixture of contemporary artwork and modern photographs. Faraday was a pioneering scientist in the fields of chemistry, electricity and magnetism, and our modern electric-powered world is built upon his discoveries. The text is clear and easy to read, while being informative, and each illustration has a relevant caption. A Glossary and a Timeline are also provided.

This 48-page book is an excellent illustrated introduction to the story of the Great Fire of London, aimed at young readers and schoolchildren, though suitable for interested adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and colourful introduction to modern Afghanistan, 25 Nov 2014
This 32-page book is an interesting and colourful introduction to modern Afghanistan. Each of its twelve chapters is well-illustrated with colourful but relevant photographs (and a map), which support the in-depth text-pieces that takes up most of the chapters. While it tries to look at the positive side of life in Afghanistan, it does go in detail into the overwhelming problems that it is facing. This would be an ideal introductory volume for schoolchildren and interested adults.

The stories running through issues #1-7 of DC Comics’ New 52 series ‘Frankenstein Agent of SHADE’ are collected as Frankenstein Agent Of Shade TP Vol 01 War Monsters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #6, 25 Nov 2014
The stories running through issues #1-7 of DC Comics’ New 52 series ‘Frankenstein Agent of SHADE’ are collected as Frankenstein Agent Of Shade TP Vol 01 War Monsters.

Issue #6 opens with Nina and Ray Palmer touring the Humanid reprocessing plant, where a Humanid gains independent consciousness and begins to plot a rebellion… while in “South-East Asia” the field team is hunting for Doctor Manhattan, or at least a red version of him from SHADE’s past… Back at the Ant Farm, the Zoo is opened and a revolution breaks out, as even more of SHADE’s shady past is brought to light.

4.0 out of 5 stars OMAC!, 25 Nov 2014
The stories running through issues #1-7 of DC Comics’ New 52 series ‘Frankenstein Agent of SHADE’ are collected as Frankenstein Agent Of Shade TP Vol 01 War Monsters.

Issue #5 is a crossover with OMAC - see issue #5 in Omac TP Vol 01 Omactivate for OMAC’s side of this story. There is a “friendly” rivalry between SHADE and Checkmate, and Maxwell Lord of Checkmate asks for SHADE’s help in capturing OMAC, leading to a big fight between OMAC and Frankenstein, while Brother Eye attempts to infiltrate SHADE’s computers - which will have repercussion in a later issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #4, 25 Nov 2014
The stories running through issues #1-7 of DC Comics’ New 52 series ‘Frankenstein Agent of SHADE’ are collected as Frankenstein Agent Of Shade TP Vol 01 War Monsters.

Issue #4 sees the defeat of the remaining two giant monsters on the alien planet, with the help of GI Robots and War Wheels (which I remember as an old Blackhawk foe from the 1960s), and the freeing of the planet’s consciousness from the monster-parasites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #3, 25 Nov 2014
The stories running through issues #1-7 of DC Comics’ New 52 series ‘Frankenstein Agent of SHADE’ are collected as Frankenstein Agent Of Shade TP Vol 01 War Monsters.

Issue #3 opens with the team fighting in the middle of an army of monsters. Khalis unleashes an energy blast which clears the surrounding area, allowing for more exposition from the remotely-communicating scientists at HQ. The planet is approaching the site of the rift, where a massive transfer of monsters will take place. However, a gigantic ‘mother’ monster makes its appearance from beneath the surface, and the team is once again in action. This leads to the discovery that there are two more giants on the planet, controlling the two other monster species, and they need to be killed off to save the Earth from invasion. The team divide into two and set off for the two targets, while back home, a new Earthbound threat is detected, and a telepathic message from the monster planet is received - “Help me!”
