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. However, considering that it also includes the likes of the original vigilante 1940s Angel and other minor […]

When this book, ‘Celebrity Werewold’, came to my attention while I was looking round the dealers room at Novacon. I wasn’t at all sure what to make of it. The title, ‘Celebrity Werewolf’, really gave few […]

Milky Way: From 13.5 Billion Years Ago To The Infinite Future by Gemma Lavender (book review).

This has to be the longest book from Haynes yet. Not in terms of page count but the length of time. Gemma Lavender’s book title ‘Milky Way: From 13.5 Billion Years Ago To The Infinite Future’ gives it away. You can go further than just after the Big Bang to infinity. Loaded with history as […]

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 […]

Nuking The Moon by Vince Houghton (book review).

The sub-title of Vince Houghton’s book, ‘Nuking The Moon’ is ‘And Other Intelligence Schemes And Military Plots Best Left On The Drawing Board’. That should point out that this isn’t some mad inventors dreaming up ideas, well, not all the time, but seeking a solution for a war-time problem, often with proper tests before some […]
