Editorial – Aug 2021: Is ‘average’ to wide or too narrow a definition?

Hello everyone What is ‘identity’ in the modern world? Having had a problem of proof of identity for something I didn’t really regard as pointy, wax carving tools, bought for shaping model filler, compared to other things I’ve bought with the long river website where I have neither a driving licence – don’t drive, not […]

Back Issue #129 August 2021 (magazine review).

As you can tell from the latest ‘Back Issue’ cover, this is a ‘TV Toon Tie-In’. Editor Mike Eury points out that 50 of them have been covered in earlier issues so this does feel like more of a tidy-up for those outstanding which does make sense. It might not be at the top of […]

Invulnerability, Indestructible and Immortality: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Invulnerability, Indestructible and Immortality: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Myth & Magic: The Art Of John Howe (book review).

Myth & Magic: The Art Of John Howe (book review).

I can’t recall where I saw John Howe’s art originally. Probably the ‘Dragon Art’ book from FlameTree recently and curious enough to see if there was and then found this book, ‘Myth & Magic: The Art Of John Howe’. There is an introduction by director Peter Jackson who explains he was inspired by Howe’s work […]

The Prisoner: An Illustrated History by Andrew Pixley (book review).

I pulled this book, ‘The Prisoner: An Illustrated History’ by Andrew Pixley, last year and with my current ‘Psi-Kicks’ storyline drawing tags from ‘The Prisoner’ TV series coming to an end, thought it might be a good idea to fit this book in, just in case I missed anything.
