The Flash Companion by Keith Dallas (book review).

Having read Gardner Fox’s biography last month and having two of TwoMorrow Publishing’s Companion books to hand and some time to spare, I thought it about time I read ‘The Flash Companion’. Actually, it should really be called ‘The Flashes Companion’ as it covers four of them: Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West and Bart […]

Energy Kinetics: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Of all the super-human powers I’ve covered, one that I’ve seemed to overlook is magnetism, although strictly, it’s more electromagnetism as it needs to be super-charged to do what the few possessors do with it. Saying that, the key super-humans who have it, like the mutants Magneto and Polaris in the Marvel Universe, are few […]

Batman Book Three by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Part of my job as a reviewer is to ignore what others have written on something I’m likely to review so it’s only my opinion and honesty. I went into these Neal Adams ‘Batman’ books, liking the art but wondering where was the spark when it actually took off? Wait no longer. ‘Batman Book Three’ […]

Doom Patrol: The Silver Age: Volume One by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani (graphic novel review)

Considering the extent of my second comicbook collection, I only have 10 issues of Doom Patrol in my collection. Hardly surprising back then as the earliest stories were in ‘My Greatest Adventure’ before the title change and neither started off at # 1.
