Iso-Lone: A Geek Guide To Home Survival : an article all alone in the light by: GF Willmetts

As someone commented in the media, people who have already been practicing isolation from a stress illness have a heads up compared to everyone else in the world who are having to settle into isolation during this coronavirus. Welcome to my world. I give hermits a bad name. For the past 14 years I have […]

Editorial – April 2020: SF realities can be worse.

Hello everyone With so many us us confined to their homes, I did have a ponder on whether or not by printing reviews we might be putting too many leisure items to the various delivery services when they should be focused on more essential items. I did ask one of the delivery people and he […]

A Pocketful Of Time: a short story, by GF Willmetts.

I never totally believed the letter when it was delivered. The device yes. An inventive gadget that could latch onto neutrinos and create a field that would make time travel possible. I tried it out and it worked. It could only let me put a hand into the future, grope around enough to pull back […]

Life At A Distance: an article for the post-Apocalypse by: GF Willmetts.

The one thing that can be done with writing on the Internet is I can always be topical or even change my mind what to write in an article, change or alter something right upto the last second it goes on-line. Editorials deal with topical subjects, too, but you do expect a lot more thought […]

Back Issue #64 (magazine review).

The subject of Back Issue # 64 in 2003 was to look at the back-up strips in the various DC Comics titles. When sales dropped for the likes of ‘Green Lantern’, rather than let the characters lie dormant after cancellation, they were turned into 8 page back-up features in the likes of ‘The Flash’. Indeed, […]

The Art Of Walter Simonson (graphic novel book review).

Oddly, the reason for my buying a copy of ‘The Art Of Walter Simonson’ was primarily to see the original pin-up he drew of the Metal Men. I had a copy of it in ‘The Amazing World Of DC Comics’ but seeing the picture with its original colouring via google felt like I needed a […]

Spyda’s Anatomy Workshop by Jason Spyda Adams (book review).

As I was buying a large bundle off of Neal Adams’ website last November and e-talking with Jason Adams, I thought the least I can do is have a look at his own book, ‘Spyda’s Anatomy Workshop’, knowing he does sculpture. I think I should have pulled his first book, ‘A Study Of Sculptural Method’ […]

The Superhero Symbol edited by Liam Burke, Ian Gordon & Angela Ndalianis (book review).

I did wonder which or what ‘The Superhero Symbol’ actually was going to be covered. From the comicbook reader point of view, it’s the label on their chests to identify who they are or the kind of power they are. Nope! This is all about what the super-heroes represent to people at large. More symbolism […]

Doom Patrol: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray TV series).

I have to confess not to being sure how the Doom Patrol would transcribe from comicbook to TV series. The photographs make it pretty clear it would be a mix of the original team with Crazy Jane (actress Diane Guerrero) from a later grouping, so obviously had a dash of Grant Morrison in the mix. […]

Following Cerebus No. 9 August 2006 (magazine review).

I know you probably can’t pull a copy of ‘Following Cerebus No. 9 August’ anymore and it looks like I pulled the remaining copy from it in a Neal Adams bundle. The most I knew about it that it obviously had a Neal Adams interview with Dave Sim, but not that it was also the […]
