Our Artists At War by Richard J. Arndt and Steven Fears (book review).

I never really followed the American war comics. Age and lack of appeal compared to super-heroes never struck me, although I did read the British version from time to time but I was a compulsive reader. Authors Richard J. Arndt and Steven Fears in this book, ‘Our Artists At War’, point out that the creators […]

The third volume, ‘Harley Quinn: Welcome To Metropolis’, reprinting the 2002 Harley Quinn # 14-25 stories does at least explain that it was the real Harley Quinn with Jimmy Olsen in the last story of the second volume.

The History Of Science Fiction: A Graphic Novel Adventure by Xavier Dollo and Djibril Morissette-Phan (graphic novel review).

I have to confess that when I was offered this book, ‘The History Of Science Fiction’, I was paying more attention to the title than its sub-title, ‘A Graphic Novel Adventure’. Getting it, it was more like in for a penny, in for a pound and I am supposed to know something about the history […]
