The Marvels Project: Birth Of The Super Heroes by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting (graphic novel review).

‘The Marvels Project’ was an original 8-part mini-series released and collected in this hardback. As it was originally released in 2010, it’s hard to say which of the various continuities of the Marvel Universe it currently belongs to.

Mac Raboy: Master Of The Comics by Roger Hill (book review).

Over the years of reading ‘Alter Ego’, I have seen the odd piece about Manuel ‘Mac’ Raboy’s comicbook work and especially a superb painted head rendition of Captain Marvel, Jr., which is also here so getting Roger Hill’s book, ‘Mac Raboy: Master Of The Comics’ should fill in all the gaps. As he reveals in […]

The Neighbor (Netflix superhero series).

With one eye on the Latin market, here’s Netflix’s new Spanish language superhero TV series, The Neighbour (we’ve spelled it ‘correctly’, here; that’s okay Netflix, no need to thank us). The official blurb reads… Thirty-something Javier struggles to handle adulthood and his girlfriend. Maybe, he doesn’t want to handle it either. One day, his life […]

The Art Of Nick Cardy by John Coates (book review).

Nicholas Viscardi aka Nick Cardy (1920-2013) was a comicbook artist that I rarely came across when young. I think the transition from DC Comics to Marvel, so many titles, not enough pocket money and the absence of credits in the former never joined the dots as to who he was. In recent years, I have […]

X-Men by Roy Thomas and Neal Adams – Gallery Edition (graphic novel review).

Long before the X-Men became ‘All-New, All-Different’, back in the 1960s, ‘The Uncanny X-Men’ were on the verge of cancellation through lack of sales. Comicbook artist Neal Adams wanting to come over to Marvel Comics from DC Comics did not want to take on a best-selling title but one that wasn’t. The X-Men was then […]
