Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #4

What secrets are hidden by the Scindia
family, a dynasty whose powerful roots trace back over a thousand years? What
strange genetic modifications fuel the death cult of the Thuggee? And how does
a humble Mumbai pickpocket figure into these world-changing events?
As each Thuggee sacrifice comes closer to
waking the ancient Kali from her slumber, can the Doctor uncover the truth
before her resurrection spells doom for India, Earth, and the galaxy?!

As mentioned in my review of last issue, I’m still a little on the fence about this series. Though it had a strong
opening storyline, last issue left me a little cold. One thing is clear though.
If the TV show is content to be a series of mostly serial episodes...

Numbercruncher

From the smash-hit writer behind X-Men Legacy! Dying young,
a brilliant Mathematician discovers a way to cheat the terrifying Divine
Calculator. He schemes to be endlessly reincarnated in the life of the woman he
loves, no matter how often the violent bailiffs of the Karmic Accountancy cut
short each life. It falls to one such Karmic agent – the surly Bastard Zane –
to put a stop to the time-twisting romance once and for all, before the
Mathematician can pull-off his greatest trick and escape Existential Justice
forever!
Numbercruncher provides a fresh, new look into the
afterlife.  According to this series,
numbers and equations are what life is all about, so it would only make sense
that a calculator is the one calling the shots (and I don’t be the electronic
kind)...

Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3

In the
distant past India played host to a war between ancient aliens, whose
cross-temporal battles contributed to the country’s rich myths and legends.
Kali, oldest and deadliest of these, was thought defeated long, long ago. But
her psychic essence could not be killed… nor her quest for vengeance.
Now, in the 23rd Century, she is on the
brink of resurrection. In a race against time the Doctor and Clara must gather
secrets and allies from across India’s past, present and future – if they are
to survive… THE SWORDS OF KALI!

This issue of the 12th Doctor’s
adventures see him taking on a story with a very colonial feel (and I think
Capaldi’s Doctor is the only one in...

Snowpiercer: Volume 1: The Escape

From fearsome engine to final car, all
surviving human life is here: a complete hierarchy of the society we lost.
The elite, as ever, travel in luxury at
the front of the train – but for those in the rear coaches, life is squalid,
miserable and short. Now the poor have had enough: it’s time to seize control
of the engine – and their future!

Film adaptations come thick and fast these
days. From superhero movies to more esoteric tastes, the comic book adaptation
is a hot property if dealt with properly. Through a bizarre sequence of
circumstances, the English translation of Snowpiercer in the UK has arrived
after the release of the film (itself crippled after the director refused to
play Hollywood p...
