Moonshadow: The Definitive Edition by J.M. DeMatthis and Jon J. Muth  (graphic novel review)

I remember reading some of J.M. DeMatthis and Jon J. Muth’s ‘Moonshadow’ back in the late 1980s, more really for the unique latter’s watercolours than the story itself. Reading it today, I’m not sure if I’ve changed my mind. In the introduction, DeMatthis pointed out he wanted to do something away from super-heroes and his […]

Flashpoint by Geoff Johns, Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope (graphic novel review).

I had noted ‘Flashpoint’ as something I ought to have a read of, and only when collecting its cover discovered that other associated graphic novels were exploring the lives of other significant characters in this time-line. Doesn’t make any difference as this is the core 5-part mini-series. Even 9 years after its original release, I’m […]

The Life And Times Of Martha Washington In The Twenty-First Century by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons (graphic novel review).

The Life And Times Of Martha Washington In The Twenty-First Century by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons (graphic novel review).

In many respects, Dave Gibbons work on ‘Martha Washington’ has been over-shadowed by ‘Watchmen’, although looking at the two graphic novels together, the techniques vary enough to make you think you’re seeing different artists. To be fair, much of ‘Martha Washington’ has a deeper colour palate, supplied by Angus McKie, that gives a near photo-realistic […]

The Wrong Earth Vol. 1 by Tom Peyer and Jamal Igle (graphic novel review).

‘The Dragonfly And Dragonflyman’ comicbook series revolve around the idea of there being two similar dragonfly themed heroes, one on Earth Alpha, a Silver Age world of colourful villains and ‘biff!’ punch effects and the other on Earth Omega, a dark noir world of blood and corruption. I reviewed the ‘Dragonfly And Dragonflyman’ graphic novel […]

The Spirit: An 80th Anniversary Celebration by Will Eisner (graphic novel review).

The hype I saw for this book, ‘The Spirit: An 80th Anniversary Celebration’ is a bit misleading or I was reading it wrong because I thought it was actually other people doing their interpretations of Will Eisner’s famous character, the Spirit. Actually, its 9 people who have either worked with Eisner by getting his stories […]
