Infinity Inc HC Vol 01 The Generations Saga (Infin&hellip by Joe Kubert
This beautifully packaged hardcover reprints the earliest appearances of Infinity Inc, "the sons and daughters of the legendary Justice Society of America", from the pages of All-Star Squadron #25-26, All-Star Squadron Annual #2 and the first four issues of their own series. Unfortunately, the cut-off point seems fairly arbitrary, as Infinity Inc #4 is only the fourth part of the ten part "Generations Saga" and so far there seems to be no sign of a second volume to complete it, but if you like good old fashioned superhero action by a master of the craft (and writer Roy Thomas is definitely that) and are a fan of the Golden Age heroes, this is definitely something you'll want… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mind of Evil, 30 July 2013
A classic Doctor Who from 1971, this story is something of a holdover from the more serious and sober style of the previous year rather than fitting into the cosy 'UNIT family' mould of the rest of the season. The precise nature of the mind parasite is never really explained, but it's certainly not your average alien menace, and Roger Delgado is on top form as the villainous Master, using the creature to alter the minds of convicted criminals and to commit murder from a distance in a tense and sometimes slightly disturbing thriller. This story was previously released on VHS many years ago in black & white, and is presented here for its DVD release in colour for the first time in over forty… Read more
