Yes, it’s finally here! The brand-new FPI magazine is coming into our stores this very day, oozing with style and sex appeal (which may have something to do with Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer on the cover of course – she’s interviewed inside).

July 14, 2005 | 0 Comments

The phrase ‘eagerly anticipated’ doesn’t really quite cover the way fans feel about the movie collaboration between Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman. MirrorMask wowed them at the Sundance Film Festival and I’ve been waiting along with many others to see if it was likely to appear on the programme of this year’s Edinburgh International Film...

Dead Boy Detectives

July 11, 2005 | 0 Comments

The Season of Mists story-arc of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman was one of my favourite parts of an outstanding series.
