Black Widow (final trailer).

Black Widow is meant to be hitting cinemas on May 1st 2020 – willing to bet this film gets cancelled, though, as that should be peak pandemic time in the USA, by then. Maybe just a Chinese release, then? Here’s their ironic-named ‘final’ trailer.

Alter Ego #163 March 2020 (magazine review).

TwoMorrows has a habit of showing its covers long before issue release. The cover of Alter Ego # 163 was quickly recognized by me as originally on the 1975 cover of Foom # 10, although not in full colour like this but in two shades. As an illustration, it is still a powerful piece and […]

Modern Masters Volume Eighteen: John Romita, Jr. by George Khoury and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

John Romita, Jr. has very big shoes to follow as his dad, John Romita, was already a famous artist at Marvel Comics and didn’t really want him to go into the industry because of the long hours and low pay at the time. There was also a little matter of nepotism as his mother, Virginia, […]

Batman: Dark Detective by Steve Englehart, Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin (graphic novel review).

The Batman: Dark Detective 6-part mini-series was originally released in 2005. As pointed out while reviewing one of publisher TwoMorrows early issue of ‘Back Issue’ last month I discovered that this was the first time that writer Steve Englehart, artist Marshall Rogers and inker Terry Austin had been reunited on a Batman series since the […]

Batman: Arkham Asylum: 25th Anniversary Edition by Grant Morrison and Dave McKean (graphic novel review).

Thinking it was long overdue that I read ‘Arkham Asylum’, I picked up this graphic novel 25th anniversary edition and read it before I reviewed ‘Welcome To Arkham Asylum’ and again after, bearing in mind their insights as it was their key reference. Don’t expect a traditional comicbook story. Artist Dave McKean clearly paints from […]

Welcome To Arkham Asylum edited by Sharon Packer, M.D. and Daniel R. Fredrick (book review).

For modern Batman fans, Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum would appear to have been there forever but was actually created in October, 1974 in Batman # 258 by writer Dennis O’Neil and artist Irv Novick and was a hospital not an asylum as recounted by editor Sharon Packer. Logistically, you would think it would have wondered […]
