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).

As promised by editor Roy Thomas a few months back, the latest issue of ‘Back Issue’ is dedicated to comicbook artist/creator Steve Ditko (1927-2018).

Joker (DC origin movie: trailer).

Here’s the rather dark final trailer for the upcoming Joker origin movie from DC – well, what did you expect, laughs and the tragic tears of a clown? Joaquin Phoenix plays a clown-for-hire struggling to earn a living in Gotham’s fractured society, and while he aspires to be a stand-up comic at nigh, the joke […]
