November Update: MyM #32 Out Now!

Issue number 32 of MCM Expo Group's MyM is now available and features a review from me on Dragonball Z: Battle Of Gods and One Piece Collection 8. I also contributed to the 'Best of 2014' feature. What about the last 2 issues you may ask? I did feature in both, but I only had a half page review in each, so they weren't really worth a post of their own.

In other news, check out the first part of a new series of articles called Manga Live over on Japan Cinema. More parts coming soon! I've continued to write on 3D printing for the Bodastone blog too. Bonus Stage has returned to NerdSpan after a 3 month break so be sure to check it out.

Meanwhile my (not so) new site Animation For Adults has been continuing to grow and there's plenty of stuff for you to read there if you haven't been keeping up. Next month will see the site's first anniversary, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's been going so far. See you soon!

August Update: MyM #29, Two Clones #1 and a New Blogging Gig.

This month saw the release of issue number 29 of MyM, which features more contributions from me. This time around I've got two reviews- One Piece and Dragonball. Not only that but I've got a feature on the A-Z of the Dragonball franchise. That article was written months back, but promptly got bumped and I've been waiting for it to get in ever since. So I'm pretty pleased to finally be able to share it.

I've also contributed a short piece to an exciting new digital magazine named Two Clones. It features a lot of really interesting geek-focused stuff from some really talented writers, some of whom I've had the pleasure of knowing for a while. My piece is on the Hayao Miyazaki film Castle of Cagliostro.

I've also got a new blogging gig! I'm writing about the 3D printing and 3D Scanning industry, which is pretty new for me. It's an exciting challenge, and outside my usual area so I've been enjoying it so far. You can check out my stuff at Bodastone.

MyM issue 28 Out now!

After last month's disappointing no-show, I'm pleased to report I'm back in the current issue of MyM (number 28) which you'll find in all good newsagents,(and probably some crap ones) as well at the App Store. My reviews are for Naruto Shippuden and Dragon Ball volume 2, so look out for it! Last month most of my online efforts were spent on continuing to write for my new blog AFA- so make sure you check it out, if you're an animation fan. Over on KSM I covered the E3 Games Show with the biggest reveals from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. I also produced another couple of editions of Bonus Stage. More stuff coming soon, so make sure you follow me on your social media network of choice to stay in the loop! Twitter FB G+

One Day late, Your May Monthly Update

With another month having whizzed by, it's time for your monthly update! The current issue of MyM (issue 26) is still available (in print and digital editions) featuring my reviews of the original Dragon Ball and the latest One Piece volume. Both reviews are pretty short, but you can read my extended thoughts on the former in the AFA review. Speaking of Animation For Adults, that new site has been where most of my attention has been lately, and it's ticking along quite nicely. As well as regular news updates, recent content include reviews of Princess Mononoke, Frozen and the Iron Man anime movie. To keep up with AFA, make sure to follow us on twitter and/or Facebook.

Also this (er..last?) month:  The Star Wars Games That Time Forgot,  Street Fighter Assassin's Fist- Best Fighting Game Movie So Far?   and yet more Bonus Stage.

Blog's Not Dead: April Update

OK, OK, first things first- sorry I have been so bad at updating the blog (I note with shame this is my first post of '14). I'm going to try and at least get back to my monthly updates. But as it's been so long I've got quite a few things to share with you. I've continued to appear in MyM, and the latest issue (25) is out now both in all good shops where magazines are sold, and the App store. I did unfortunately miss my first issue- no contribution from me in number 24! However, I did write an article that month, that unfortunately got bumped, so I hope to bring you news of that one shortly.
I'm still contributing to KSM, although not as frequently. New Editions Of Bonus Stage have gone up regularly over on NerdSpan too.

The big news however is I have launched a new site of my own- AFA: Animation For Adults. It's been up since the end of last year, and I started by reposting my old Screen Highway stuff, before gradually building up quite an archive of new content, including news, reviews and articles. Too many to list here so,  go check it out for find out more for yourself! It's very early days, but I'm quite pleased with how it's going so far. To make sure you stay in the loop with what I'm up to make sure to follow me on twitter and/or facebook. See you next month (I hope!).

Last Post (.......this year)

So, 2013 is nearly over and quite frankly I will be quite happy to see the back of it, personally. But there's still time for another Chronicles update before I stop writing for the festive season! MyM issue #21 is out now (in shops and app store). You'll find just one review from me this time, Shangri-la part 2. Secondly as alluded to in my previous post, I have started republishing my old Animation Avenue posts on a brand new blog. Currently, consider it in beta- design, format and even name are possibly temporary, but I will tell you more about it in 2014.

I have a few articles that will go up over Christmas week, keep an eye on my twitter for details. Starting with the Bonus Stage Christmas special! A very Merry Christmas to all my readers, and I'll see you next year.

Pardon the Interruption

It has been a while again, hasn't it. Yep I've been thoroughly slacking when it comes to updating the blog, but I have been writing in the meantime. Not as much as I'd like, as thanks to a combination of bad health and a sudden death in the family November was pretty much a write off. But here's a quick run-down of the latest:
  • Issue 19 and 20 of MyM have been released, featuring more reviews from me. Number 20 (currently on newstands) features my reviews of Guilty Crown, Shangri-La and Sengoku Basara.
  • I have a new feature on The Void called Downstream highlighting some of the best streaming TV and movies. First up Vampire Prosecutor!
  • My editing and writing at the site formelly known as Rebel Gaming has continued. We're now known as KillStreak Media. (Not a fan of the new name, but I still enjoy writing for the site all the same!)
  • It has come to my attention that Screen Highway is no longer online. Keep an eye out for exciting developments in the very near future though!
