Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Six (magazine review).

The 76th issue of the ‘Jack Kirby Collector’ opens with editor John Morrow correcting wrong impressions some have gleaned from the 75th issue, ‘Stuf’ Said’ in which he chronicled the creation of Marvel Comics. The Internet is now awash with anti-Stan Lee comments based on his work. Morrow is not anti-Lee just pro-Kirby. It’s a […]

Captain Marvel And The Art Of Nostalgia by Brian Cremins (book review).

The biggest problem with Brian Cremins’ book, ‘Captain Marvel And The Art Of Nostalgia’ was discovering that there was just over 18 pages of footnotes at the back of the book with details that needed to be looked up when reading. I know this is a bugbear of mine but surely if the information is […]

Back Issue #112 June 2019 (magazine review).

In a weird quirk of fate, I had Back Issue # 113 a few days before # 112. The problem with faulty time travel machines.

Despite the rise in the number of novels and stories involving supernatural creatures such as vampires, werewolves and angels, there is still a fascination for the super-hero. I am sure there is no-one who has not wished at some time or another to have some power that is unique to us. That power may be […]

Back Issue #113 July 2019 (magazine review).

You know how it is. A new issue of ‘Back Issue’ arrives, ahead of # 112 which arrived a couple days later, and instead of just reading the opening article, I ended up reading 20 pages in my first sitting. As the cover shows, this issue covers the 1989 ‘Batman’ film and it’s hard to […]
