Really nice analysis of three panels from Tatsumi's Black Blizzard. Incisive and highly readable.
I really enjoyed doing this review of James Stokoe's Avengers issue, especially the bit at the end, where I pulled my 3 favourite panels and talked about them a bit. So I decided to make a little feature out of it: introduce ...

Thoughtful article on the design (you know, how it works, not just how it looks) of iOS7.

My old partner-in-crime Tim Pilcher has written his memoirs. It's a rollicking read, and I highly commend it to you if you want a nuts-and-bolts, no holds barred look at the comics publishing industry in the UK.

I've always had a soft spot for Fulham FC, and Craven Cottage is part of that. It's a proper old fashioned football stadium that's stood the test of time and it never fails to cheer me up whenever I'm there. It's a far cry from the stadium of the club I support (Arsenal), but it reminds me of Highbury and how football stadia used to be. Beware, though, if you go during the depths of winter. The wind coming off the Thames means its freezing, so wrap up warm or jump about!

The oldest comic shop in Europe, and certainly one of (if not *the*) best. Founded by the late Kees Kousemaker (R.I.P.), it's the mecca for anyone into comics. Many an hour can be spent here looking through their massive stock, and the gallery of original art. Bring plenty of money, because you're going to want to give it to this wonderful shop and their friendly, helpful staff.

It's a fabulous modern stadium befitting the best run football club in the UK. Ooh to be a Gooner!
