A Disclaimer

When I set up this site, rather than just rave about how great everything was, or repeat the publishers blurb, I tried to critically appraise each graphic novel or comic. The reviews reflected my own take on each work, how much i enjoyed it and what i thought of the artwork. I tried to be honest and fair, but at the same time I was a bit of a comics fan and an advocate of the medium so the reviews were bound to be on the tame side. Over the last few years I have actually met, and got to know some of the people whose books I had reviewed. I liked them as people. If I had written anything at all derogatory I felt bad (I'm not sure I'm cut out to be a critic). Now it is often the case that I know the people before I read the book, so just bear that in mind when you are reading my reviews- I'm not hard faced enough to slate the work of people I like! I also make comics myself under a nom de plume and know what it feels like to be at the recieving end of a critics opinion. The site is meant to point readers in the direction of works they might find useful so the reviews are not comprehensive, or academic.

Copyright policy:

I am very aware that the graphic art shown on this site is copyrighted by the publishers of the volumes shown. I have made the decision to show only the covers of the graphic novels or comics reviewed, on the basis that these covers are widely reproduced on the web, especially by vendors such as Amazon, and The Book Depository, from whom they are availiable to buy. I have assumed that as I may be assisting in publicising these works, the publishers will not object. I would not, however, reproduce artwork from within the works without seeking permission from the publishers/author. If a publisher objects to my using a cover image, i will remove it at once.
