Arrow season seven (trailer).

Arrow is still shooting off his arrows – well, someone who looks like him, at any rate, given the real item is apparently languishing in prison. Or, is he?

Untamed: The Psychology Of Marvel’s Wolverine by Suzana E. Flores (book review).

In her introduction to ‘Untamed: The Psychology Of Marvel’s Wolverine’, author Suzana E. Flores cites Roy Thomas, Len Wein and Herb Trimpe for creating Wolverine in 1974, although nary a word that this was only in the matter of design and nationality. Nary a mention of the fact that he was developed by Chris Claremont, […]

Max Fleischer’s Superman: The Collection (1941) (animation series review).

I’ve been promising myself that I really ought to have a look at the Fleischer Brothers animated series of ‘Superman’ to see if the animation is as good as others have claimed. The origin of Superman is changed slightly. He’s still from an exploding Krypton but brought up in an orphanage on Earth with no […]

Assembling The Marvel Cinematic Universe edited by Julian C. Chambliss, William L. Svitavsky and Daniel Fandino (book review).

The editors Julian C. Chambliss, William L. Svitavsky and Daniel Fandino in their introduction to their book, ‘Assembling The Marvel Cinematic Universe’, point out no one has done a book examining this subject yet.

Back Issue #107 September 2018 (magazine review).

I was surprised with the cover of this issue of ‘Back Issue!’ featuring the Archies but then, this issue is all about the Archie Comics. They were also formerly MLJ Comics but, like DC Comics, adopted their more popular collective name. As is pointed out in the introduction, there isn’t just a Big Two, but […]

Superman In Myth And Folklore by Daniel Peretti (book review).

As the title of Daniel Peretti’s book, ‘Superman In Myth And Folklore’, shows its more an exploration of how the Man of Steel has become part of modern American folklore than the comicbooks themselves. I have to confess to not being surprised by this. After all, the USA is a mixed immigrant culture which, outside […]
