Comic Book Creator #20 Summer 2019 (magazine review).

Looking at the cover of the latest issue of ‘Comic Book Creator’ and you would think it should be called a ‘Joe’ issue, as with the exception of Craig Yoe and Kristina Deak-Linser, that’s the common denominator for the rest.

The dividing line between super-heroes and Science Fiction has always had some vagaries as a topic and the […]

Alter Ego #160 September 2019 (magazine review).
