Dead Space, Liberation by Christopher Shy

July 25, 2017

Dead Space, Liberation is the third graphic novel in the Dead Space series. Titan Books has taken the Dead Space video game and made it into an impressive graphic novel.

Book Review of The Lazarus Gate, by Mark A. Latham

June 21, 2016

The Lazarus Gate, by Mark A. Latham is a beautiful thing to be holding in your greedy reader’s hands. Although the genre’s a little hard to pin down on this one.
