Remnants & Relics. Buttonhole *Special* Feature

Welcome dear reader to Remnants & Relics, the first in an ongoing series of features looking back at various aspects of yesterday's video games. This series is one that I'd hoped to kick off many months ago, but I just haven't had the time to do it justice, until now. So consider this your opportunity to put on your best pair or rose-tinted glasses, open up a luke-warm can of clichés and prepare to hop aboard the way-back-machine.... It came from beyond two dimensions! -A Look Back at Isometric Gaming-

ACMI Day Tripper

Welcome Buttonhole readers to another feature that is so choc-full of goodness that I've divided it into several sections. The top half is about the Indy video games showcased at ACMI. The bottom half is about the Pixar exhibit. It's ridiculously long and all terribly interesting to read, so you may as well read it in two halves, or just the parts that interest you. After reading about the ACMI exhibits on their website and getting more than a little excited, I decided to make the perilous trek to inner Melbourne. With time on my side and money stuffed in my pocket I ventured forth to the train station. Once on board I passed the time by staring out the window, reading a volume of Dark Horse's Concrete and snacking on tasty fruit. Arriving at Flinders St, I wandered around until inevitably finding my way out of the rat-maze like station.

Classic Comic-book Review. Kraven's Last Hunt

"Here lies Spider-Man - Slain by the Hunter" So reads the grave of one of histories greatest superheros. "But he's not dead, is he? What happened to everyone's favourite web-slinger? Spidey seems to be alive and well now, what with his three movie deal and a string of monthly Marvel comic-book titles to his name, so why was he buried six feet under? The year is 1987. The company is Marvel. The character is Sergei Kravinov also known as 'Kraven the Hunter.' Back in the 60's Stan and Steve (Lee and Ditko, respectively) churned out a heap of cool villains for the title "Amazing Spider-Man." Doctor Octopus, The Cham

Battle of the Planets 1 dvdBattle of the Planets- Collection 1 (3 Disc Box Set)
70's space ninjas with boomerangs! What's not to love?

by Hillelman
Mark is the fearless leader with the very familiar voice. Princess is the kick-arse chick with the distractingly short pink dress. The ironically named Tiny is the dopey strong man with a big beer gut. Jason is the hot-headed rebel who cracks the shits all the time. Keyop is the freaky little dude with the really annoying speech impediment. Together they are G-Force; a special team dedicated to protecting the galaxy from evil aliens while wearing funky bird helmets! I absolutely loved this show as a kid and I still enjoy watching it today. The artwork and the character designs are just so friggin’ stylish and cool. What I didn’t know back in my blissfully ignorant childhood years is that the versions (there were two different variations made: Battle of the Planets and later G-Force)... Read On
"Must own" comics part 3: Batman the Dark Knight Returns
Frank Miller's legendary Bat book joins the group

by Hillelman
I get a smile on my face just thinking about this classic graphic novel by Frank Miller. First published in four volumes in 1986, The Dark Knight Returns is everything a Batman comic book should be. Miller at his very best is almost unbeatable and Dark Knight is a perfect example of that. When comic book fans think of the Batman character, this is the book most likely to spring to mind first and rightfully so. ... Read On
Batman: Mystery Of The Batwoman dvd Review
Feature-length animated Batman action

by Hillelman
I love Batman. He’s one of my favourite characters from comics or anywhere else. There’s just something so flat-out cool about him. He doesn’t have any superpowers; he’s just a pissed off millionaire who has trained mentally and physically all his life so that he can go out at night dressed up as a giant bat and beat the crap out of nasty criminals. Good for him I say.... Read On

"Must Own" Comics Part 2: From Hell
Another Alan Moore classic makes the list

by Tyz
I am currently in the process of writing a graphic novel – not a comic book – a graphic novel. People will scoff when you try and make this distinction, thinking that the world of Casper the Friendly Ghost and the dream-scape of The Sandman are one and the same – and only for the consumption of children. ...

"Must own" comics part 1:Watchmen
You MUST own this. Or else!

by Hillelman
“This is the book that changed an industry and challenged a medium. If you’ve never read a graphic novel, then WATCHMEN is the one to start with. And, even if you have, it’s time to read it again.”... Read On

Only Yesterday. Anime Review

The problem with having favourite films is that every time I watch another Studio Ghibli film it becomes my new favourite. It kind of renders the word 'favourite' meaningless when every Studio Ghibli film takes my breath away. Still, I can't complain about being thoroughly entertained by this whimsical and insightful film, "Only Yesterday". This gem was directed by Isao Takahata, well known for his anime film Grave of the Fireflies. Although Only Yesterday is a light hearted film that ambles along at a leisurely pace, it still manages to explore themes such as love, work, family relationship struggles, following your dreams and country versus city living. In the film, the main character Taeko decides to take a working vacation in the country, getting away from her office bound job and unexpectedly starts t

Speed Grapher V1. Anime Review

Well, "I don't like it" was my initial feeling when viewing this Anime for the first time. Subsequent viewings haven't changed my views a great deal. Nothing really stands out as being absolute shit but it seems that this series tries too hard. It's almost like they were more interested in creating something 'edgy' and confronting but sadly forgot to include an even remotely palatable story. The hero of this particular piece is a bloke called Tatsumi Saiga. Tatsumi is a photographer and a veteran war journalist for whom taking photos has become somewhat of a fetish. Although he seems to have become jaded - nothing is worth wasting his film on - that is, at least until he stumbles across an exclusive club for the mega rich
