As a veteran of far too many half drunk (and to be perfectly honest, fully sober but somewhat sillier) comic shop conversations about comics I’ve often debated my favourite comics and heroes but I’ve never really sat down to write a cohesive argument before. So when Hachette publishing started running their “Who’s Mightiest” poll to promote their upcoming graphic novel collection (Marvel’s Mightest Heroes) I was surprised to find it a little harder than I initially expected, my decision is made however, the mental votes are in, my favourite Marvel character is…Read More
Welcome to the second episode of Weekend Kickstarter.
I’ve been relatively quiet on Kickstarter this week in terms of actual backing but here’s some recommendations for those not so poor right nowRead More
I’ve been using Kickstarter more and more recently, on top of that a few friends have recently launched a new project on there to raise funds for a movie they’re making and this has promoted me to start a new Kickstarter post series.

I upgraded my Desktop to Windows 8 a few weeks ago and I really like it, it’s a solid O/S that works quickly and generates minimal problems. Through my work and social life I’ve talked about it a few times often to be met with hostility towards an operating system no one has seen let alone actually tried, mainly because there seems to be a crap load of bad information out there about what Windows 8 can and cannot do on your desktop.
Not only is it the best O/S Microsoft has put out to date it’s the first one I have ever used that truly embraces dual monitor support, it has rendered DisplayFusion completely dead to me which is a shame because that software used to be on my essentials list.Read More
So i’m currently reading through all the Jack Reacher books after a good friend of mine (who goes by the name of @L_Smithy on Twitter) told me they were fun.
They are fun, and I’m enjoying reading through them but i’m always in discussions about which is my favorite/least favorite etc. so here is my ranked list so far.Read More
