review by Joe Vaz

Abi Godsell’s Idea War is magnificent.
I had the privilege of reading the first ten chapters of Abi Godsell’s sprawling Idea War series a few years ago, and it immediately grabbed my attention.

review by Joe Vaz

There's a reason why 2000AD is still the greatest comic around, three decades after it's launch. There are many reasons, actually, great characters, astounding art, riveting story lines and never-ending weekly thrills.

Over the years I have become both a fan and a friend of Sarah’s, so I expected The Three to be good. What I didn’t anticipate was how dense, epic and yet intimate this book is.
