The Hawk And The Dove: The Silver Age (1968-1969) by Steve Skeates, Gil Kane, Neal Adams and Steve Ditko (graphic novel review).

I remember when ‘The Hawk And The Dove’ comic first came out in the late 1960s and us kids were keen to see what Steve Ditko would produce in the post-Spider-Man age. I also remember being disappointed, but I was only eight and had simple tastes. When I came across this cheap e-book I was […]

Draw! #16 Fall 2008 (magazine review).

As you should spot from the cover of Draw! # 16, the main comicbook artist interviewed is Howard Chaykin, giving a bit of his history, his apprenticeship with four significant key artists and showing how he draws. His layouts are literally stick figures and he confessed that he relies on the inking stage to sort […]

Back Issue #70 February 2014 (magazine review).

Contrary to the look of the cover of Back Issue # 70, the focus isn’t on Wolverine but the Incredible Hulk, focusing primarily on his own title from the 1970s and the longevity of Herb Trimpe and Sal Buscema runs on the title as Jarrod Buttery relates ol’ greenskin’s history. I’m glad the page from […]

Alter Ego #102 June 2011 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Alter Ego’ from 2011 focuses on the Green Lanterns and as editor Roy Thomas points out, there were two creators involved with the Alan Scott version and another three creators for the Hal Jordan version, each adding something to the creation. I’d forgotten that Alan Scott was originally going to be called […]

Draw! #15 Spring 2008 (magazine review).

Amongst my Draw! bundle, # 15’s cover title is ‘Back To School Issue’ seemed an unusual title. Actually, it’s more like a university education but that would make for a longer title. As editor Mike Manley points out, comics are respectable and now you can even get art degrees in it in the USA. Although […]

Back Issue #123 November 2020 (magazine review).

The latest copy of ‘Back Issue’ proclaims it’s a ‘Superhero Romance Issue’. Well, judging by the opening article by Bob Greenberger, it’s all about marriage as he covers the DC and Marvel Universes and how successful they are. I still think Avengers # 60 is one of the best covers of marriages or anything else. […]
