Lunar Tunes by Wally Wood (graphic novel review).

Lunar Tunes by Wally Wood (graphic novel review).

I should point out this copy of ‘Lunar Tunes’ by Wally Wood is a second printing done in 2012. As editor Dave Spurlock points out in the introduction, this is Wood’s last work before he committed suicide rather than live with deteriorating eyesight and other medical problems. Don’t expect his detailed artwork as in his […]

Batman Book Three by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Part of my job as a reviewer is to ignore what others have written on something I’m likely to review so it’s only my opinion and honesty. I went into these Neal Adams ‘Batman’ books, liking the art but wondering where was the spark when it actually took off? Wait no longer. ‘Batman Book Three’ […]

Doom Patrol: The Silver Age: Volume One by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani (graphic novel review)

Considering the extent of my second comicbook collection, I only have 10 issues of Doom Patrol in my collection. Hardly surprising back then as the earliest stories were in ‘My Greatest Adventure’ before the title change and neither started off at # 1. I hadn’t realised until now that although I missed their first appearance, […]

EC Comics: Race, Shock & Social Protest by Qiana Whitted (book review).

EC Comics: Race, Shock & Social Protest by Qiana Whitted (book review).

I think the cover of Qiana Whitted’s book, ‘EC Comics: Race, Shock & Social Protest’, should tell you what the subject matter is. Although I’ve read only a few of the stories over the years, including the notable 1953 story, ‘Judgement Day’, I wasn’t even born when they first came out and expensive reprints have […]

Carmine Infantino: Penciller * Publisher * Provocateur by Jim Amash with Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Carmine Infantino: Penciller * Publisher * Provocateur by Jim Amash with Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Unlike TwoMorrows ‘Modern Masters’ series, they do occasionally do larger volumes on particular people. This is the case with ‘Carmine Infantino: Penciller * Publisher * Provocateur’ by Jim Amash with Eric Nolen-Weathington. Hardly surprising because Infantino moved up through the ranks at DC Comics to becoming its publisher for five years and so a much […]

FBP: Federal Bureau Of Physics #3 by Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez (comic review).

FBP: Federal Bureau Of Physics #3 by Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez (comic review).

Trying to assess the merits of a comic book series from a single issue part-way through the storyline isn’t easy at the best of times and the complex world of ‘FBP’ doesn’t help. But the overall gist is this: randomly occurring ‘bubbleverses’ pop up in our world and, within these, the normal rules of physics […]

Batman Book One by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Believe it or not, the long river website already declares that ‘Batman Book One’ by Neal Adams is already out of print or give it a high price when I was looking earlier in the year although some lower priced ones are there again now. I noted it in my bucket list on the hope […]

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

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 […]

Hashtag: Danger – Volume One: Panic On Dinosaur Mountain by Tom Peyer and Chris Giarrusso (graphic novel review)

A piece of advice given to reviewers for this site is to try and select things to review that you have a chance of liking or at least might find interesting. This is because someone who flat-out dislikes a particular genre is going to struggle to deliver a useful critique for potential purchasers of that […]
