Illustrators #22 (magazine review).

In the introduction to this latest edition of ‘Illustrators’, comicbook artist Dave Gibbons points out that being an artist’s agent was a good living in the 1950s and he joined their agency much later.

Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know: Conspiracy Theories That Won’t Go Away by David Southwell and Graeme Donald (book review).

Conspiracy plots tend to be border-line with SF these days, more so as so much SF is far into the future than current times. Then again, with at least 18 months to 2 years before a book sees print, any modern day conspiracy plot can quickly become dated these days if you want to include […]

UFO: The Complete Series Blu-Ray Boxset With Book (Blu-ray/book review).

It isn’t as though I haven’t reviewed the DVD version of the ‘UFO’ TV series, so there is more an emphasis on the differences and extras in the blu-ray special limited edition. In fact, I thought I missed the boat completely in being able to buy a copy. More so as Andrew Pixley’s book included […]

The Art Of Incredibles 2 by Karen Paik (book review).

I only saw the first ‘Incredibles’ a couple years ago, a little worried about super-hero parodies which it oddly wasn’t and happily enjoyed it. More so, as that film was made 15 years ago and, even under CGI, hasn’t dated that much. Then again, I accept the rules of any film I watch unless they […]

Back Issue #105 July 2018 (magazine review).

It should hardly come as a surprise looking at this edition of ‘Back Issue’ that the subject is martial arts characters in the comicbooks. The major influence of this obviously being a certain Bruce Lee. As the opening article is about ‘Shang-Chi, Master Of Kung Fu’ that shouldn’t be surprising as he looked more like […]

Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide To Creating Imaginative Fiction: Revised & Expanded by Jeff Vandermeer (book review).

I never read Jeff Vandermeer’s original release of this book, ‘Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide To Creating Imaginative Fiction: Revised & Expanded’, but I became curious as to what he has to say about writing. He isn’t alone here as he ropes in a lot of writers he knows to also give their opinions. There are […]
