Welcome to my little corner of the internet. Here, you will find commentary on what I call my 3 Cs: cinema, comedy and comic books. There will be links to news, other reviews and pretty pictures, as well as some meandering on other, unrelated topics, as I believe is mandatory for a blog.
Why Clandestine Critic, I hear nobody ask apart from myself? Well, a few reasons. One, I like the sound of it (Clandestine Reviewer doesn’t have the same oomph, even if it might be more appropriate.) Two, I am a sucker for alliteration (see title for this post, for example). Three, it reflects the nature of criticism, infiltrating the source while remaining behind the art itself (if that doesn’t sound too pretentious.)
Finally, the name pays tribute to one of my favourite comic book series by a favourite creator – The ClanDestine by Alan Davis. It only lasted for a handful of issues back in 1994 (due to various reasons, which I’ll go into when I write about it at some point) but I’ve always remembered it fondly and deservedly. And what is a blog good for if not a soap box for someone’s obscure passion?
