Stan Lee (1922-2018) a remembrance by: GF Willmetts.

It was inevitable that Stan Lee would pass on and the third of the original 1960s Marvel bullpen this year, the others being Steve Ditko and Marie Severin. Even so, there are some people whom you believe will go on forever and Stan Lee would certainly be seen as that, more so as he made […]

Stan Lee: December 1922 – November 2018. Nuff said?

Mike Grell: Life Is Drawing Without An Eraser by Dewey Cassell with Jeff Messer (book review).

Back in 1975, when I was getting back into American comicbooks and a UK fanzine called ‘The Panelologist’ broke the spell that I should ignore the so-called ‘feud’ that you had to choose between DC Comics and Marvel Comics, that I picked up on the ‘Superboy’ comics to see what the Legion Of Super-Heroes were […]

Not So Indestructible: an article in durability by: GF Willmetts.

Before I start, I need to distinguish between being invulnerability and being indestructible. Although there are similarities, there is a distinct dividing line. Invulnerable people, when under a yellow sun like Kryptonians and Daxamites, are practically unstoppable. When this is combined with super-strength, they are also hard to imprison as well.

Avengers: Infinity War (Blu-ray film review).

Having been fairly successful avoiding spoilers and hype, I watched ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ fairly unmolested by expectation, although I do have a few films before to catch up on now. Knowing how many lead characters there were, I did wonder how the plot would avoid having them all together which was skilfully done even if […]

Back Issue #108 October 2018 (magazine review).

I have to confess from the start that I’ve never been a great Aquaman fan. I was dragged screaming to do an illustration of him when I was at college and had to read a few issues in the early 70s and found him a bit on the bland side. Having an entire issue of […]

Comic Book Creator #18 Summer 2018 (magazine review).

The latest copy of ‘Comic Book Creator’ starts in several parts. That is some of the interviews are spread over more than one issue. That in itself is no big thing because if you did a page count, they’d fill each issue. For starters, we have part 1 of an interview with Mary F. Fleener […]
