When I saw an advert in TwoMorrows’ ‘Alter-Ego’ for this book, ‘Forgotten All-Star: A Biography Of Gardner Fox’ by Jennifer DeRoss, I contacted her publisher, PulpHeroPress, for the possibility of a review copy and they were happy to oblige. One of the first DC Comics I bought was Detective Comics # 347 where it was […]

Batman Book One by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Believe it or not, the long river website already declares that ‘Batman Book One’ by Neal Adams is already out of print or give it a high price when I was looking earlier in the year although some lower priced ones are there again now. I noted it in my bucket list on the hope […]

If you haven’t seen the little green man above before then where have you been? This is the fifth cover appearance that I can remember it being used and I’m still counting. It was originally from the cover of ‘Martians, Go Home’ by Fredric Brown and illustrated by the great Frank Kelly Freas (you pronounce […]

Marvels: Eye Of The Camera by Kurt Busiek, Roger Stern, Jay Anacleto and Brian Haberlin (graphic novel review).

The ‘Marvels: Eye Of The Camera’ 6-part mini-series was originally released in 2010, taking 8 years to complete, as a progression of the successful 1994 ‘Marvels’ mini-series by writer Kurt Busiek and artist Alex Ross and is still regarded as a classic. If anything, it’s more surprising that it took so long to do a […]

Hung, Drawn And Executed – The Horror Art Of Graham Humphreys (book review).

I suspect a lot of you have seen artist Graham Humphreys’ art without necessarily associating who actually did it. As you should be able to tell from the title, ‘Hung, Drawn And Executed – The Horror Art Of Graham Humphreys’, he specialises in horror film posters, book covers, horror convention posters and commissions. He shows […]

Illustrators Special #6: Brian Bolland  (book review)

You cannot have been brought up on comicbooks from the late 1970s on without seeing the art of Brian Bolland. Principally known for his work on ‘Judge Dredd’, ‘Camelot 2000’ and ‘The Killing Joke’, Bolland admits he is not the fastest artist and predominately did far more covers than interiors. I met Brian briefly around […]

MI6: British Security Intelligence Service Operations 1909-1945 by Nigel West (book review).

When I saw the two Nigel West book covers together, I couldn’t help feeling there might be some confusion in picking up the right book if I was buying one of them in a bookshop and they were facing out from the same shelf. After all, there is only a matter of one word added […]

Illustrators Special #5: The Art Of Commando (book review).

As ‘Commando’ magazine’s editor-in-chief/general Alexandria Turner points out in the introduction, people don’t realise that this A5 war magazine is still going strong after 58 years with over 4,000 issues and in several other formats as well. Although this is slightly different to our normal remit, you can’t deny the art is interesting and publisher […]
