Batman Book One by Neal Adams  (graphic novel review)

Believe it or not, the long river website already declares that ‘Batman Book One’ by Neal Adams is already out of print or give it a high price when I was looking earlier in the year although some lower priced ones are there again now. I noted it in my bucket list on the hope […]

Marvels: Eye Of The Camera by Kurt Busiek, Roger Stern, Jay Anacleto and Brian Haberlin  (graphic novel review)

The ‘Marvels: Eye Of The Camera’ 6-part mini-series was originally released in 2010, taking 8 years to complete, as a progression of the successful 1994 ‘Marvels’ mini-series by writer Kurt Busiek and artist Alex Ross and is still regarded as a classic. If anything, it’s more surprising that it took so long to do a […]

Wonder Woman 1984 (superhero movie: trailer).

Disco never dies in the upcoming superhero flick Wonder Woman 1984, and, seemingly, neither does Steve Trevor (Trek’s very own Chris Pine) as he’s back from dying in the first world war – somehow – just in time to fight with WW against Cheetah (aka Kristen Wiig) and some mad tycoon played by the ubiquitous […]

The ultra-violent grimdark take on superheroes operating in a corporate sponsored celebrity selfie world, aka The Boys (based on the comic-book strip of the same name) is coming back to Amazon Prime for a second season, which is no surprise given the popularity of the first one.

Free Guy (superhero movie: trailer).

Free Guy is a film where Ryan Reynolds discovers he’s actually a NPC in a very violent computer game modelled on something like Grand Theft Auto – think Tron meets Matrix meets Deadpool, and you’ll have a good idea of what this comedy action scifi hybrid beast is all about!

Marvel’s Black Widow (superhero movie: first trailer).

The Black Widow is going back to Russia for a reunion with her family in the much anticipated Black Widow film from Marvel Studios – and hey, her dad looks a lot like that Deputy bloke from Stranger Things. Just don’t tell her that she dies in the future, sob! Arriving in the cinema on […]

Modern Masters Volume Seven: John Byrne by Jon B. Cooke and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Just to show I do buy occasionally, I pulled this softcover, a third edition from 2012 no less, of ‘Modern Masters Volume Seven: John Byrne’ by Jon B. Cooke and Eric Nolen-Weathington. As with all of this series of books, there are extensive interviews detailing the artist in question’s early life and love of art, […]

Shazam! (2019) (blu-ray film review).

I have to confess the three beginnings don’t make a lot of sense because no one is identified. The first choice by Shazam the wizard (actor Djimon Hounsou) doesn’t appear to be pure of heart. The young Billy Batson gets lost in a crowd at the fun fair when young and brought up in an […]

The Marvels Project: Birth Of The Super Heroes by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting (graphic novel review).

‘The Marvels Project’ was an original 8-part mini-series released and collected in this hardback. As it was originally released in 2010, it’s hard to say which of the various continuities of the Marvel Universe it currently belongs to. However, considering that it also includes the likes of the original vigilante 1940s Angel and other minor […]

Mac Raboy: Master Of The Comics by Roger Hill (book review).

Over the years of reading ‘Alter Ego’, I have seen the odd piece about Manuel ‘Mac’ Raboy’s comicbook work and especially a superb painted head rendition of Captain Marvel, Jr., which is also here so getting Roger Hill’s book, ‘Mac Raboy: Master Of The Comics’ should fill in all the gaps. As he reveals in […]
