About Eliot Cole

When I say that you should buy something, please understand I say that in full knowledge that the prices of comics are just flat out wrong. I'm talking to the select few with enough disposable income to actually pay $3.99 for ~20 pages, often less.

Anyway, me? I'm a generally affable chap, happy to shoot it over a pint of proper beer (that's ale to some), I read basically anything, but I've found I'm now finally learning to love the small press / self-published scene a little more, even though I'm a relative newcomer to it (10y).

Wired Up Wrong

Wired Up Wrong Review: Best Book of the Year?

Wired Up Wrong by Rachael Smith might just be my book of the year, perhaps for the wrong reasons (I'm laughing at someone's depression!) — but since when have reasons been important? [rwp-review-recap id="0"] There's a warning at the start of this book, so I'll put a warning here: I liked this book so much, […]

Black Bolt #8

Black Bolt #8 Review and Preview: Kaleidoscopic Intensity

Black Bolt #8 is a great jumping-on point from Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward, and if it has, how has this book passed you by? Today marks the release of both this and the collection (Hard Time) of issues one through six, and hopefully this issue will make you go back and buy that if […]


Bolivar Tips The Scales In Its Favour For Kids Book Of The Year

To be short, because you'll want me to be: if you have kids, Bolivar should be bought. To be long, if you are a human being with young humans that you look after and care for there is a children's comic book by Sean Rubin published by Archaia called Bolivar, and it really should become a purchase that you make […]

All-New Wolverine #26 Review: Funny Faces, Fulsome Feels, But Exasperating Explanations

All-New Wolverine #26 had me questioning it for a hot second, but it quickly won me around through some solid feels. [rwp-review-recap id="0"] Last issue, there was a studious lesson on Daken, Murumasa, and their secret, shielded history. There was also a weirdly silent Jonathan, some outstanding colour work from Nolan Woodard, and… Laura's mother! […]

Knights Of The Golden Sun #01 - cover

Knights Of The Golden Sun #1 Review: Doesn't Quite Shine Brightly Enough

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Knights of the Golden Sun is Mark London and Mauricio Villarreal's new comic about the Angels (knights) of heaven (the golden sun) fighting Lucifer, Death, and the fallen. That matter-of-fact description is about it, to be fair. This is a narratively confusing first issue, which is why I find hard to recommend anyone […]

Dan Dare #1 Review: A Bit Of The Old, And Just Enough Adventure

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Dan Dare should be one of the great ongoing comic strips, like Judge Dredd, Tex, Dick Tracy, Dennis the Menace (both versions), and more. But it just hasn't happened (a whole 'nother story). So it falls to Titan (after Virgin Comics before them) to do their (super effective) IP management magic and make […]

The 100 Comic-Con Panel Report: A Grand Exercise In Vapidity

I went to the The 100 panel (the the, great band) today for Bleeding Cool, and I'm relatively sad to say that it was a little bit vapid. Actually, it turned out that the 100 was a panel that was the first of two exercises in collective naval gazing and collective celebrity back patting that, whilst funny, really […]

Cannes Jury Announced – Welcome To Miami

The 2017 Cannes Jury has been announced and it has both words and letters in it that mention the names of people. Being an esteemed executive producer that has taken a short film to said festival, I thought it best that this news come from me. Here's the Cannes announcement: Under the presidency of the Spanish […]
