Something For The Weekend: Top News, Reviews And Interviews From The Past Week

by Olly MacNamee

If you are a regular reader of this weekly Saturday column, you should know the drill by now. Ten-to-takeaway from the past week to entertain and inform you, on-the-go, at home or wherever you are. A mix of reviews, news and, this week, an interview too! Some you may have read, some you may have missed. So, let’s dive in, shall we, with a look at this week’s New to You Comics:

  1. Brendan M Allen and Tony Thornley looked back at Image Comics Kill the Minotaur, by Chris Pasetto, Christian Cantamesa, and Lukas Ketner. Read their thoughts on this title here.
  2. Here’s a strange thing. Last week’s Something for the Weekend column makes it onto our top ten list for the first time this week. Seems our drive to kickstart a few new regular columns in recent months is beginning to take root. Read up on what people were reading a week ago here.
  3. Four reviews to share with you next. First up Rogue Planet #5 by Cullen Bunn and Andy MacDonald.
  4. Next, a look at Stranger Things: Science Camp #1 from Dark Horse here.
  5. We also looked at a new Kickstarter campaign from indie small press Reckless Hero. Knights vs. Pirates by Jay Martin, Chris Imber and Chris Jenkin. A very professional and high polished book with a very new spin on the arthurian legend. Read all about it here.
  6. Our last review to share with you this weekend is one for Alien – The Original Screenplay #3 from Dark Horse. Check it out here.
  7. This past week we caught up with Ian Edginton and Matt Brooker, aka D’israeli, to discuss the return of Stickleback, after a 6 year hiatus from 2000AD. You can read up on our cozy chat here.
  8. NYCC online will be taking place this weekend. A rather sore point as this was going to be the year I finally made it over to the Colonies and this con. Ah well, it could be worse. At least they’ve got events going on online, such as a behind the scenes look at Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal. Read more here.
  9. Another trailer we shared with you this past week was for Netflix new anime series Blood of Zeus, brought to you by Tito W James here.
  10. Finally, Marvel’s Contest of Champions introduces some more new characters to their popular game, and as ever Gary Catig was on hand to report here.
