Who Is Killing The Great Capes Of Heropa? Available On Amazon

A while back I introduced readers to Andrez Bergen's fantastic superhero novel Who Is Killing The Great Capes Of Heropa. The book has become critically acclaimed and is now available to buy from Amazon.

The plot is very noir with lovely heapings of Kirby-esque four colour sensibilities and I highly recommend you read it.

Amazon blurb:

Heropa: A vast, homogenized city patrolled by heroes and populated by adoring masses. A pulp fiction fortress of solitude for crime-fighting team the Equalizers, led by new recruit Southern Cross - a lifetime away from the rain-drenched, dystopic metropolis of Melbourne. Who, then, is killing the great Capes of Heropa? In this paired homage to detective noir from the 1940s and the '60s Marvel age of trail-blazing comic books, Andrez Bergen gloriously redefines the mild-mannered superhero novel.

Go buy it!

DC Gives Reason For Pulling Lesbian Marriage Batwoman Storyline

One of the great success stories of DC's New 52 was Batwoman's stand-alone ongoing series by J.H.Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, with Elegy being one of the finest stories the company has put out in a while. Now that news has come out that the current creative team will no longer be working on the book because of editorial differences, DC has caused uproar in the community leading to questions about editorial integrity and freedom.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Has "Knocked It Out Of The Park"

Marvel's 2013 film servings may not be quite finished yet, with the release of Thor: The Dark World in the UK at the end of October and at the beginning of November for the US, but that's not going to stop the buzz for one of next year's biggest blockbusters: Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There's apparently good reason for it too.
