Alter Ego # 65 February 2007  (magazine review)

With a cover featuring the work of comicbook artist Nick Cardy, it’s hardly surprising the main interview is with him. This issue of ‘Alter Ego’ predates ‘The Art Of Nick Cardy’ book they published and is part of the source of material for that book in its original form. From there, another perspective look from […]

The Art Of Brian Bolland (book review).

I came across this book, ‘The Art Of Brian Bolland’ and ‘Bolland Strips’, via The Book Palace’s ‘Illustrators Special’ late last year and bought both and, considering their age, still in mint condition. Presumably, those who want them, got them and the rest didn’t know about them. From the looks of things, I’m reading them […]

Death’s Head: Freelance Peacekeeping Agent by Simon Furman, Walt Simonson and Ferg Handley (graphic novel review).

Those of a certain age might remember Marvel UK’s late 80s attempt to create a series of ‘American format’ comic franchises. There was ‘Dragon’s Claws’ – a futuristic mash-up of The Dirty Dozen and Rollerball; ‘The Sleeze Brothers’ – two future private detectives with more than a hint of ‘The Blues Brothers’ and ‘The Knights […]

Batman: Harley Quinn (graphic novel review).

I’d seen the Alex Ross cover of Harley Quinn and the Joker before but not where it was used until I came across this graphic novel, ‘Batman: Harley Quinn’, featuring 7 stories across her career. It’s also a good way to get a sampling of her stories and to see how she has developed across […]

Batman: Gothic: Deluxe Edition by Grant Morrison and Klaus Janson (graphic novel review).

Much of Grant Morrison’s work at DC Comics was after I dropped out of comic reading. The original material for ‘Batman: Gothic’ was in Legends Of The Dark Knight # 6-10 in 1990 and although I collected the title back then, it wasn’t until I got this graphic novel that I found that out. Little […]

Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice (graphic novel review).

I came across ‘Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story’ by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice through one of TwoMorrow magazines and looked it up. Oddly, Wonder Woman is a peripheral character in this 1998 graphic novel. An antique cairn is found on a farm in Ireland and a message sent to Wonder […]

Back Issue #2 (magazine review).

I have a current bugbear looking for Back Issue # 61. It was originally released double-size representing giant-size comicbooks Marvel and DC released in the 1970s with an Alex Ross Legion Of Super-Heroes cover, reprinted 18 months ago at its regular size and both sold out. Like any of you looking for something, I was […]
