Marvel Knights: Black Widow: The Complete Collection by Devin Grayson, Greg Rucka, J.G. Jones, Scott Hampton and Igor Kordey (book review).

I picked up ‘Marvel Knights: Black Widow: The Complete Collection’ mostly to see how Natasha Romanova was doing. I haven’t looked at any of the other five books in the ‘Marvel Knights’ series but it doesn’t appear that there is any connecting link. This book is divided into 3 mini-series. In the first, ‘The Itsy […]

Rough Stuff #7 Winter 2008 (magazine review).

Oddly, TwoMorrows don’t have many paper copies of their ‘Rough Stuff’ magazine left and this is the only paper issue left from the looks of things. ‘Rough Stuff’ is generally a look at comicbook art in its preliminary stages and the comparing to the final inks. If you think the layouts are very basic, seeing […]

Titans: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray TV series review).

This version of the Titans depends more on the 1970s version than the 1960s, although with the brief early inclusion of the Hawk (actor Alan Ritchson) and the Dove (actress Mika Kelly) for one episode does suggest an earlier past grouping. It doesn’t quite follow the Wolfman/Perez version. Rachel Roth aka Raven (actress Teagan Croft) […]

The Nice Jedi (Star Wars video).

Here’s a silly Star Wars video which re-imagines the prequels as a trailer for a comedy cop-buddy movie. Not that far from the actual truth, then?

The Metal Men Archives: Volume 1 (graphic novel review).

I’ve been meaning to lay my hands on ‘The Metal Men Archives’ for some time, more so as I only bought 9 issues of its early run and then followed more of it when it was revived and followed the same numbering. It felt like the right time to read the early 1962-63 material with […]

Retro Fan #9 June 2020 (magazine review).

The cover of the latest ‘Retro Fan’ shows the late-1970s Captain America as played by actor Reb Brown in two TV movies. I think the most surprising thing with his interview with Mike Eury here was seeing the raise in fee Marvel wanted per episode compared to ‘The Incredible Hulk’ TV show that made it […]
