DARK PHOENIX RISES IN 40TH ANNIVERSARY VARIANTS

CELEBRATE ONE OF MARVEL’S MOST BELOVED STORIES WITH THESE FIERY COVERS Forty years ago, the legendary creative team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne set a new standard for comic book stories with the Dark Phoenix Saga. Both heartbreaking and thrilling, the story found Jean Grey corrupted by the limitless power she yields as Phoenix. Beginning in UNCANNY X-MEN #128 and escalating until its dramatic conclusion in UNCANNY X-MEN #137, readers at the time were awestruck as Jean Grey went from heart of the X-Men to their most formidable villain. The saga was an instant classic and cemented the X-Men as one of Marvel Comics’ most successful franchises.

Since then, the Dark Phoenix Saga has been revisited in various stories, adapted to both television and film, and is considered a masterpiece of the comic book medium. Now, as Dawn of X launches and the X-Men venture into an exciting new era, the franchise will be honoring the past with Dark Phoenix 40th Anniversary Variant covers! From Jean…

Then the fracking company came and there was a brief spark of hope – maybe there’d be some jobs, at least. But that fizzled out. Instead the people started falling ill.

Gwen Cooper’s come to Glynteg to find out what’s happening. Something ancient has w…

Designer and prop builder, Dave Taylor has been going batty, and it’s nothing to do with it almost being Halloween.Article by Dean Newman
Holy hotwheels, Batfans! The talented Essex designer, who previously brought us a lifesize X-wing fighter and speederbike from the Star Wars universe, has switched franchises, this time he has gone to the Dark Knight side.

He’s emerged after over 400 hours from his make-shift Batcave with a lifesize model of the Bat Tumbler from The Dark Knight Trilogy of Batman films by Christopher Nolan.

Dave said: “Unfortunately I don’t have the resources of Bruce Wayne, so I’ve built my version of the iconic vehicle from mainly a steel and plywood frame, with MDF body panels and fibreglass wheels.”


The Tumbler breaks down into about 36 individual pieces, making it the ultimate 3D jigsaw when putting it all together, not that its design wasn’t without its problems.

Dave said: “Casting the wheels was awkward, but the geometry of the body panels was frustrating at…
