Back Issue #114 August 2019 (magazine review).

Back Issue # 114’s theme is the black super-heroes of the 1970s. Hardly surprising then that Luke Cage gets the centre-point. Anyone missed in this issue is appearing # 117 and there’s a checklist for the other 17 characters on the letters page and what issues they appeared in. A couple of them have appeared […]

Ruth Wilson always did play an amazing bunny boiler, and […]

After four issues where Michal T. Gilbert aka Mr. Monster has been giving us the correspondence of comicbook artist/writer Pete Morisi (aka PAM) that he had with the now late Glen D. Johnson, we get a mass of it this time. As Johnson never kept copies of what his own letters were, we only see […]

Killing Gods: A Superhero Novel by Tony Cooper (book review).

One of the best reasons for writing a sequel is if the characters have more story to tell and if it is sufficiently different from their first outing to keep the readership enthralled while holding on to all the features that made the original idea captivating. It is not easy to do and many authors […]

Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD: Who Is Scorpio? by Steranko & Co. (graphic novel review).

Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD by Steranko & Co. (graphic novel review).

Although I own some of the Steranko original run of ‘Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD’ from the comicbook ‘Strange Tales’ back in the late 1960s, I don’t have all of his early issues and saw this graphic novel as a chance to fulfil something that should be on my bucket list. Although this volume came […]
