Forbidden Planet reviews iHero

Richard Burton is a great reviewer for the Forbidden Planet International website. He has taken his time to review iHero.


Lets see some of the highlights of what he had to say:


but where it gets interesting for me is when Halsall throws in some more interesting, possible unforeseen problems… what about superpowers for super-adultery, or even better, how would employers react to superspeedster employees blowing through a days work in 5 minutes?


Halsall has a lot of ideas to pack into the first issue, lots of very interesting questions that come from the emergence of the super-tech. And this initial stage of the comic is where the real interest lay for me, the questions posed were intriguing, somewhat original, and well done.


Halsall’s a tenacious writer though, each time I see his work it’s progressing slowly in the right direction. Long may he continue to do so.


Thanks a lot for reviewing it Richard. I really appreciate it. IF you want to see the rest of the review click here 

iHero in Stores!

iHero sold really well at Glasgow Comic and now it is on sale in shops in Glasgow.

The big name in comic book shops. Forbidden Planet is on one of Glasgow’s high streets. A great winding shop with a huge selection of comics, graphic novels and self published indies.

A1 Comics

A1 comics is in the heart of the comics scene. It is a cracking wee shop with a great range of comics and toys.

Geek Retreat 

Geek Retreat is a brilliant new shop to buy comics and grab a cup of coffee. It is a truly awesome place to relax and chill. I would definitely try a cup of London Fog and buy some comics. The staff are friendly and happy to help.

Reads Vol.3 reviewed

This has already been a huge year for me so far and one of the biggest things was that I got the honour of being apart of Avery Hill Publishing’s Reads Volume 3.

Here is what Richard Burton of Forbidden Planet thought about the story myself and Staticgirl created Gifted:

started really well, great art, nice idea…both Halsall and Staticgirl have promise.

I really appreciate the comments Richard.

Mind Palace in another shop

The Mind Palace has been getting some great reviews and selling well in Forbidden Planet Glasgow, Plan B Bookshops and American Dream Comics, Bath. Today on Free Comic Book Day, The Mind Palace was released in new coffee shop meets comic book store, Geek Retreat.

Geek Retreat is a great place to hang out with comfy sofas and lovely coffee. You can buy The Mind Palace whislt browsing the rest of the comics memorabilia and other comic books. Also if you buy a coffee you get the chance to read some of the best comic books from The Mind Palace itself, to my good friends Gary Chudleigh and Graeme Kennedy’s excellent Villainous to GLoW 2 (that I am also apart of) to even the best of the main stream (from Saga to Superman) it is all there.


The Mind Palace Hits The Stores

The Mind Palace has started to get some reviews and I am really thankful for all the work everyone has gone into the book: from art, to putting it together to the reviewing, it is a true joy to see.

And now The Mind Palace is in stores and it is all around the UK.

First off we have Forbidden Planet in Glasgow, Scotland

Forbidden Planet is a great shop to go in, right on the main street in Glasgow. It is staffed by many people who know tons about comics and are happy to blether to you about them. The Mind Palace is situated in the self published area next to some of the best, local talent there is. I feel honoured to be with these books as I really respect the other creators, many I know personally.

Then there is Plan B bookshops in Glasgow, Scotland

PLan B bookshops is a cool, quirky wee shop in Trongate, Glasgow. It serves some great coffee and has a fantastic range of graphic novels. If you are struggling to find a book, these are the guys to go to.

And finally American Dream Comics in Bath, England

American Dream is a wonderful wee shop with a lot of character. I am proud to say that The Mind Palace is one of the first self published books to be taken on by the shop. staffed again by guys who are approachable and know a lot about comics, this is a great way for you to get your weekly dose of four colour quality in the West Country.
