Back Issue #114 August 2019 (magazine review).

Back Issue # 114’s theme is the black super-heroes of the 1970s. Hardly surprising then that Luke Cage gets the centre-point. Anyone missed in this issue is appearing # 117 and there’s a checklist for the other 17 characters on the letters page and what issues they appeared in. A couple of them have appeared […]
