Superboy’s Legion Volumes 1 and 2 by Mark Farmer and Alan Davis (graphic novels review).

Considering how DC Comics release massive volumes of their early material, I have to wonder why their ‘Otherworlds’ version of ‘Superboy’s Legion’ was released as 2 books. As it’s also a two-parter, I’m reluctant to review them apart with such a small page count. Even more surprising, it was never continued as it’s a rather […]

Alter Ego #152 May 2018 (magazine review).

I have to confess that I have never heard of Larry Ivie (1936-2014) until now. However, reading Sandy Plunkett’s extended article here, Ivie was one of the founding American comicbook historians, developing writing and art skills, the latter of which can be seen growing over the feature. He was also the chap to go to […]

Incredibles 2 (film trailer).

Not sure why it’s taken so long to get the Incredibles back into animated superhero greatness, but I’ll take it. Maybe Pixar fancied a break? Maybe they were waiting for the right story – that’s something they’ve been known to chase around for a while. Polishing and perfecting. The backstory to this one is that […]

The cast also […]

Literally smashed to death by someone with super-strength and a black ace hole card that is the calling sign of the Nat archer Yeoman left at the scene. This brings Yeoman back onto the scene to find […]
