Batman: The Killing Joke (Deluxe Edition)
Batman: The Killing Joke (Deluxe Edition)
Price: £8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars True classic, 17 Mar. 2016
Seminal standalone Batman story.
Alan Moore gives The Joker a backstory and humanity, only for it to be pulled away and left with the evil we know and love.
Many aspects have been pulled into the larger Batman universe, setting the tone of a darker era of Batman stories.
Any fan should have this in their collection, it is truly a masterpeice.

being born in the 80s, and being a gamer, I loved the references to the origins of gaming this book focuses on.
Also a very good novel too!

This book has it all.
Superheroes!
Supervillains!
Pizza!
Teenage love!

Plus it had the best nod to existing Tom Reynolds fans imaginable.

Eagerly awaiting more Meta. (Team Meat, is my suggestion for a title)

5.0 out of 5 stars ideal case for a 3G keyboard, 19 July 2013

Tough, light, easy to use.
Zips up so nothing can get at it.
I chuck mine in my bag and cycle everywhere, so i needed something robust.
5* no faults at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wolfmother, but not wolfmother, 18 July 2013

This review is from: Keep Moving (MP3 Download)
Being a huge WM fan, it was inevitable that i would buy this album.
Its great! Some songs have the WM feel to them, others are completely different.
I hate to compare the two, since this is a seperate project (of sorts)
Has an experimental feel to it, and might not be to everyones tastes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Paid for advertising, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zero Day (Kindle Edition)
It seems i paid to read a promotional book for M$ windows, for the 1st 10 chapters or so, M$ was mentioned at least once.
I found out the author is an employee of M$ so was probably getting a few kick backs for it.
Thankfully it simmered down and settled into the story.
I bought this based on a Kindle recommendation after i read Daemon and Freedom(tm), this, however, is not that similar.
The story was ok, but th ending felt rushed, and urges you to buy the 2nd book in the story.
I haven't, and i doubt i will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value, great watch, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seiko SKX009K1 Men's Watch (Watch)
I have had this watch for a number of weeks now, and felt it perfect time to write a mini review.
Some owners report hideous time gains/ losses with their, I have not experienced this yet.
It has become my daily watch, so its always fully charged (Automatic watches wind the spring using the everyday movement of the watch) and have not had to set the time since its initial setup.
The Lume is not great, but i am not diving with it. Entering a darkened room, its super bright, but after a few minutes its faded to useless, if this is going to be an issue for you, do not buy it.
The strap started to squeak a few days after purchase, i have no idea what was causing it, the rubber on lugs i think, but i have switched out to a grey NATO strap now.

One thing i oft read about the SKX009 is the colour of the face "is it blue or is it grey?" well, it is hard to tell, the blue on the dial makes it look like a deep dark grey, but i think its a powdery dark blue.

I would heartily recommend this a (fairly) cheap step into the wonderful world of automatic watches.
I hae had a few Seiko 5s previously, and decided to sell my collection to buy a 'proper' Seiko, and i have not been disappointed. I am even tempted to buy an SKX007 to go with it!

Pros:
Low cost for a well made movement
Keeps accurate time
screw down crown to keep moisture out
look awesome

Cons:
Lume on hands lacks longevity

Overall I find it hard to fault this watch.
