Journey to One Piece: Chapter 1 to 100

One Piece (manga)

After hearing that the manga series is actually Very Good for a few years now, I’m finally diving into One Piece and I’m writing a sorta-diary series on it. A note beforehand: I’m pretty familiar with the opening arcs of One Piece since I watched the anime series as a kid – especially the arcs… Continue reading Journey to One Piece: Chapter 1 to 100

I read Part 6 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure ‘Stone Ocean’ and it’s crazy

Talking at people about how incredible JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of my favourite hobbies. I’m not the only one; it’s becoming an international pastime.

Like the other Netflix-Marvel Defenders series, it was 13 hours long (!). I haven’t read any Iron Fist comics whatsoever. From what I did know of the show’s premise, I figured I was already… Continue reading Watching Marvel’s Iron Fist with Low Expectations

REVIEW: Highlander: The American Dream

Published by: IDW Publishing Writer: Brian Ruckley Artist: Andrea Mutti The release of IDW’s Highlander: The American Dream, a five-issue limited comic series that finished in mid-June, was a weird thing for me. Not in the existential way, just a total coincidence: I’d been planning a comic series for essentially my own version of Highlander… Continue reading REVIEW: Highlander: The American Dream
