Adventureman Volume 1: The End And Everything After by Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson (comic-book review).

With New York being threatened from a menace in the skies, the mayor has no choice but to contact the retired Adventuremen and his team and, reluctantly, they take the serum that endows them with super-powers and get into action. Well, that’s the story, literally, as its in the comicbook read by young Tommy and […]

Comic Book Creator #26 Summer 2021 (magazine review).

One of the many things I like about ‘Comic Book Creator’ is when it steps into areas that I normally don’t have any interest in and probably still don’t afterwards but it gives me knowledge. Point of fact with Jon Cooke’s look at Don Dohler’s ProJunior in the American underground comics, a rather oddly eyed […]

Folio Society shows how you should reprint your classic comics.

Ed and Jim reckon that the recent Folio Society reprints of such comic classics as Captain America and Spiderman lead the way in showing the quality possible when you really try. DC and Marvel, sit up and take note, please.

Comic Book Artist Bullpen edited by Jon B. Cooke (book review).

Now here’s an oddity. Once upon a time in 2003, there was a fanzine called ‘Comic Book Artist Bullpen’ that ran for 7 issues, interviewing comicbook professionals, specially George Tuska, Frank Bolle, Fred Hembeck and Terry Beatty and then a double-sized issue devoted to Jack Abel, with contributions from a lot of other people. If […]

Venom: Let There Be Carnage (a superhero film review by Mark Kermode).

Mark Kermode is a sucker for punishment this week, as we force him to sit down in front of the superhero film Venom: Let There Be Carnage. In this dark sequel, journalist Eddie Brock’s tumultuous relationship with alien critter Venom is put under even more strain when a new, much more deadly symbiote finds an […]

The Secret Of Identity: The Problem Of Being Robin: an article by: GF Willmetts.

The problems of keeping a secret identity as a superhero are odd these days. In the old days, in the Big Two comic-book companies, you might keep it down to members of the super-teams like the JLA or The Avengers, simply as a matter of being able to contact each other in an emergency. Taking […]

The Art Of Amanda Conner (book review).

As you might have noticed from my reviewing the graphic novels of Harley Quinn and Power Girl, I’ve quickly become a fan of Amanda Conner’s artwork. Oddly, there have only been three books about her art and this one is regarded as the best one. The other ones appears to be reprinting her comicbook strips, […]

Comic Book Artist #7 February 2020 (magazine review).

I pulled a rare paper copy of Comic Book Artist # 7 off the auction website. Hardly surprising with a Paul Gulacy cover. This 2000 edition focuses on kung fu, specifically a certain Shang-Chi, so we have interviews inside with both Paul Gulacy and Doug Moenech. What was a bigger surprise was how dense the […]

Venom 2 Let There be Carnage: superhero movie review (video).

Andre is here to settle in in front of the movie Venom 2: Let There be Carnage, where our alien parasite-infected everyman Eddie finds he’s not the only antihero on the block anymore, when some Hannibal Lector-type serial killer gets his own dose of crazy and nasty. But did Andre think this flick was also […]
