Draw! #15 Spring 2008 (magazine review).

Amongst my Draw! bundle, # 15’s cover title is ‘Back To School Issue’ seemed an unusual title. Actually, it’s more like a university education but that would make for a longer title. As editor Mike Manley points out, comics are respectable and now you can even get art degrees in it in the USA. Although […]

The Digital Art Of Steve Stone: Nexus DNA Volume One (book review).

For a book that is some 22 years old, I found getting hold of ‘The Digital Art Of Steve Stone: Nexus DNA Volume One’ relatively easy and even an autographed copy no less. As John Burns explains in the introduction, he was visiting various artists for their views on his new digital software and came […]

A Traveller In Time (1978) (TV series DVD review).

Don’t always expect time travel stories to be massive or dramatic. Alison Utterley’s ‘A Traveller In Time’ TV series was on TV back in 1978 and I’m wondering how I missed it back then. Compared to modern day series, it is slow but intense as clues are unravelled. Youngster Penelope Taverner-Cameron (actress Sophie Thompson in […]

The Monstrous Collection by Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson (graphic novel review).

I pulled a copy of ‘The Monstrous Collection’ to have a closer look at the late Bernie Wrightson’s art completed, according to the copyright around 2011. When it comes to horror, like fantasy, it can get a bit closer to the probably wouldn’t happen like that in real life and yet, a few tweaks with […]

Back Issue #123 November 2020 (magazine review).

The latest copy of ‘Back Issue’ proclaims it’s a ‘Superhero Romance Issue’. Well, judging by the opening article by Bob Greenberger, it’s all about marriage as he covers the DC and Marvel Universes and how successful they are. I still think Avengers # 60 is one of the best covers of marriages or anything else. […]

Kelly Green: The Complete Collection by Stan Drake and Leonard Starr (graphic novel review).

Oddly, I picked a copy of ‘Kelly Green: The Complete Collection’ by Stan Drake and Leonard Starr cheap through Bud Plant’s sell-offs back in the spring. I recognised Stan Drake as an artist from his Marvel/DC work and Leonard Starr’s name from the variety of newspaper strips he wrote. Steven Ray Austin accounts for his […]

Retro Fan #11 November 2020 (magazine review).

With the latest issue of ‘Retro Fan’, we are back into the realms of the original ‘Dark Shadows’ with an interview with actor David Selby. I remember his interviews a long while back in ‘Fangoria’, and his friendly nature is the same here as well, giving insights into the part and how fans stood outside […]

Editorial – Nov 2020: Cuddle Your Safety Blanket And Touch Your Fingertips.

Hello everyone, We all have a safety blanket. Not in the literal sense, unless you’re really very young but we don’t appear to catch many in that age group. In case you don’t know, in context, a safety blanket is a generic term for something we regularly use to get away from the troubles of […]

The Me In Court: A Crowded Galaxy Story: A Pop-Up Guy Story by GF Willmetts.

‘Am Me going to be accused of every crime going just because Me is everywhere?’ Me asked the court in general but looking at the judge, looking around for reaction. It wasn’t as if Me was on trail but one of the other Me’s was. ‘Why do you refer to yourself in the third person, […]
