Usborne Illustrated Guide to Greek and Norse Legends (Myths & legends)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young myth fans!, 18 Jun. 2004
I picked this book up when I was young from the library, and ever since I've been hooked on myths and legends.
It's a brilliant book, with a brief outline of all the major Greek and Norse myths. Best of all, there's a who's-who guide at the back of the book explaining the major characters, their histories and their destinies.
This books great, the art's fantastic, and is the best buy for any young kids who want to know the histories of all the Greek and Norse gods.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...BATMAN?, 13 May 2004
This review is from: Superman: Speeding Bullets (Comic)
Bruce Wayne has lived a lonely life ever since his parents were murdered when he was young. One night he vows to end crime on the life of his parents.
So using his incredible strength, invulnerability, heat vision and power of flight, his shadowy alter-ego preys on crime.
Sound a bit wrong? Well, this is elseworlds. After all, this Bruce Wayne fell from the sky from the doomed planet Krypton!
I love this elseworlds. It's a great view on what Bats would be like with the powers of Superman. Where as 'normal' Batman looks threatening, Super-Bats IS threatening, cooly breaking arms and frying criminals with heat vision.
The only let down is the forced Lex-as-the-Joker. It's doesn't seem to fit, and the ending's kinda obvious. After all, he's still Superman.
Well worth a look, if only to see what Superman would do if he was put in the same place as Batman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Knight...Forever!, 7 May 2004
This review is from: Batman: Bloodstorm (Paperback)
The above review is incorrect. This ISN'T the last book, but instead is the sequel to the classic Red Rain.
Batman has been cursed to stalk the scum of the night forever, both blessed and cursed by Dracula's bite. When he falls for Selina Kyle (a Catwoman for real!) he believes he is free to love, eased of the thirst for blood that tugs at his very soul. However, an old foe has something to say about it, something that will curse Batman and make his foe smile the biggest smile...
The sequel outdoes the first book, as it charts Batman's slow corruption by a force he tries to hold back, but can't fight.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Dark Knight, 7 May 2004
Batman and Dracula. Two names linked to the darkness, but for different reasons. For Batman it is a means to an end, a way to scare criminals. For Dracula, it is his way of life, and a way to hunt.
When Dark Knight meets Dark Prince, all hell is unleashed, a gift (or curse) is given and the Batman becomes more Bat than Man...
A classic elseworlds story, that unfolds to a trilogy, one that is a must read for all Batfans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just an atypical yanky grunge band, 29 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Silver Side Up (Audio CD)
Despite what others may say, Nickleback are without doubt the best 'Nu-metal' band out there. Ok, Linkin Park have the rapping guy, Limp Bizkit have lots of swearing, Marilyn Manson dresses like a woman and sure Metallica are still the best, but this album was written by Chad Kroeger as his way of dealing with all the rubbish in his life. His song's are heartfelt and appeal to all.
Featuring the hit How You Remind Me (who can't relate to this?) and the follow up Too Bad, this album also includes Just For (with classic line 'And I wanna rip his heart out, just for hurting you, yes I do.', an updated version of the original from their earlier album Curb.
I'd recommend it to all as since hearing it I am now an avid fan, and spent quite a lot of cash trying to get hold of their earlier work.


Son of Superman (Elseworlds)
Son of Superman (Elseworlds)

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing pains, 23 Aug. 2003
Superman is missing, presumed dead. The JLA are all goverment funded and corrupted by the power. Lana and Pete are terrorists and Jon Kent, Lois Lane's son, can now leap tall buildings in a single bound even though he can't seem to keep a date. What else could go wrong?
This is a pretty good Elseworlds tale from seeing Jon's comical reaction to finding out about Lois' complictated explanation about her relationship with his dad, to the consumate ease Luthor explains what's been going on.
I especially liked the way Jon argues with Supes, making him look exceedingly stale in the new world he's come into.
Look out for the human reaction to emerging superpowers and a few shocking betrayls from close friends.


Jla the Nail: An Elseworlds Tale of the Justice League of America
Jla the Nail: An Elseworlds Tale of the Justice League of America
by Alan Davis
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars What if Superman hadn't joined the JLA?, 23 Aug. 2003
Based around the idea that Superman never met the JLA, this tale shows us a would were the superpowered world is under attack from an enemy very close to the missing hero.
I'd recommend it to anyone who like the Elseworlds tales, as it gives great insight into how the JLA would be without old red pants.
Look out for Batman going Tonto and a shocking discovery in a small Western town!


Fear Itself (Green Lantern)
Fear Itself (Green Lantern)
by Ron Marz
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Heroes, 23 Aug. 2003
Alan Scott, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner. Linked only by the fact they're all GLs right? Wrong. Each has faced the same enemy. Two failed to defeat it, so will Kyle win?
I have to agree with the other reviewers (although Kingdom Come has the better art by far!). The plot's a bit pony, but the basic thought fits with Kyle. Belief in oneself. One for the dedicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars What makes a hero heroic?, 23 Aug. 2003
Following on from A New Dawn, Kyle Rayner continues his journey to understand the world of suprheroes. Look out for classic Batman scenes, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, and Sentinal (actually the first GL!).
Best paired with A New Dawn, this is the first faltering footsteps of the (then) newest hero in the DC Universe. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is true evil?, 19 Aug. 2003
Kyle Rayner's homosexual assistant Terry lies in a coma he may never awaken from. Victim of a hate crime, he has been horribly beaten and left for dead.
How can Kyle, bearer of the most powerful weapon in the universe possibly stay calm and rational? How can he keep a level head when his friend lies dying? And what choices will he have to face in order to save his friend's life?
Deserving the award it won, Brother's Keeper is one of the best graphic novels I have ever read. Tackling a subject we all face today, I recommend this, not for the fact it's a GL story, but because it is a tale we all need to hear.
