Dr. Martens Adult's 11839002 original 3 eyelet sho&hellip Dr. Martens
5.0 out of 5 stars Doc Marten classic, 8 July 2014
Not much to say that the seasoned Doc wearer won't know. Very marginally larger than other shoes of my size (as expected) but not enough to be a problem. Leather very stiff for first week of wearing (I now buy plasters in anticipation when breaking in a pair of Docs) - but comfortable as anything thereafter. I see they now make that a selling point - the moulding to your feet (as they put it), not the having to buy plasters. Presume they will be as hard wearing as previous pairs I have owned. The quality of the build seems consistently high. This model is smart enough for work but OK for casual wear as well. Have worn Docs all my life from adolescence onwards and can't see that changing so… Read more
Slaine: The Horned God: Kiss His Axe! by Pat Mills
This collection dates from the late 80s where comics were aiming at a more adult market in the wake of things like Dark Knight Returns. It was a good time for 200AD resulting in some classic Judge Dredd story lines and some other character driven epics from writer Pat Mills. Slaine was an established character when THG was written and the storyline, based on Celtic mythology, tells of his epic battle with the Lord Weird, Slough Fegg - a story full of sex, paganism, battle field violence, ancient and capricious gods and tongue in cheek humour. Simon Bisley's art work astonishes more than 20 years on. An exceptional collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic record, 6 Mar 2014
Is there anything new to say about this record? A classic of it's era and G'n'Rs enduring claim to fame. It's enduring nature rests on several key tracks, notably Sweet Child o' Mine (tho Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City are other strong contenders). A few tracks are less engaging thus it drops a star IMHO.
