Watchmen (HBO TV series: 2nd trailer).

Here’s the second trailer for the HBO Watchmen TV series based on the universe from the Dave Gibbons/Alan Moore graphic novel. Oddly, Alan Moore’s name doesn’t feature at all in the HBO/DC blurb … I wonder if he’s demanded they don’t use it, because he’s notoriously ‘specific’ about the liberties taken with his creations by […]

Well, time will tell. The new series has a bunch of photos out via the current Comic-Con publicity machine. It will be […]

If you thought that Star Trek had forgotten about the previous success of their little micro-shorts, then  think think again, Federation citizen! And for the really good news, three of the six episodes from Star Trek Short Treks feature the early Enterprise escapades with Pike and Spock – including some cannibal Tribble trouble. Ouch!

The Guide To Better Grammar: from the harrowed hand of GF Willmetts.

It’s been long-overdue for me to bring the various guidelines to the current SFC website. Much of below was written in 2012 but things like grammar never go away. Some of the opening points apply to general submissions. The grammar aspect is something that shows you know the basic elements of writing well. In the […]

Any Klingon only adverts in existence?

Bob from the Star Trek Society of Lesser Goring writes in with the question, “Were there any TV adverts produced ONLY in Klingon?” Bob, rest easy. Of course there was – check out this Star Trek pizza advert from the depths of 1994. Was it really so long ago? Yes, so it seems.

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 […]

Alter Ego #159 July 2019 (magazine review).

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 […]

Even if you don’t know comicbook history, you might still have heard of comicbook writer Steve Gerber (1947-2008). Reading the 28 page biography at the start of this book will fill you in if you don’t or missed out details.
