The Art Of DC Comics Bombshells (book review).

Sal Buscema: Comics’ Fast & Furious Artist by Jim Amash (book review).

I pulled ‘Sal Buscema: Comics’ Fast & Furious Artist’ by Jim Amash last year at auction last year. In many respects, I think the fan community back in the day saw him as a workman artist than give him any status. I tend to remember the scene from ‘The Defenders’ where a despondent Hulk is […]

Back Issue # 134 April 2022  (magazine review).

I’m not sure if I’m reading this correctly but the Joe Kubert ‘Back Issue’ cover of Superman belies the content from the sub-title, ‘Bronze Age Rarities & Oddities Issue’.
