Comic Book Creator #21 Fall 2019 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Comic Book Creator’s editorial announces that ‘Mad Magazine’ ended in February 2018 after 67 years. As circulation has only been slight in the UK the past few decades, I was surprised the news went passed us. The ability to poke fun at society, no matter which country, is an acknowledgement of free […]

Carmine Infantino: Penciller * Publisher * Provocateur by Jim Amash with Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Unlike TwoMorrows ‘Modern Masters’ series, they do occasionally do larger volumes on particular people. This is the case with ‘Carmine Infantino: Penciller * Publisher * Provocateur’ by Jim Amash with Eric Nolen-Weathington. Hardly surprising because Infantino moved up through the ranks at DC Comics to becoming its publisher for five years and so a much […]

Alter Ego #161 November 2019 (magazine review).

No, this issue of ‘Alter Ego’ is not a tribute to Galactus but to Stan Lee, the man behind the big man or vice versa. It’s a size or initial thing.
