Alter Ego #161 November 2019 (magazine review).

No, this issue of ‘Alter Ego’ is not a tribute to Galactus but to Stan Lee, the man behind the big man or vice versa. It’s a size or initial thing.

Marvels: Eye Of The Camera by Kurt Busiek, Roger Stern, Jay Anacleto and Brian Haberlin (graphic novel review).

The ‘Marvels: Eye Of The Camera’ 6-part mini-series was originally released in 2010, taking 8 years to complete, as a progression of the successful 1994 ‘Marvels’ mini-series by writer Kurt Busiek and artist Alex Ross and is still regarded as a classic. If anything, it’s more surprising that it took so long to do a […]
