The Moorcock Library: Elric: Stormbringer by P. Craig Russell (graphic novel review).

‘Elric: Stormbringer’ has two heroes: Stormbringer is a magic sword of great power. Elric is a miserable, pasty-faced whiner with a medical condition, dependent on drugs merely to stay alive. The adventures of Michael Moorcock’s famous albino have been issued, re-issued and adapted endlessly since his first appearance in 1961. These Eisner award-winning stories by […]

Back Issue #128 July 2021 (magazine review).

As you can tell from the cover of this ‘Back Issue’, the emphasis is on Bronze Age TV Tie-Ins. Mike Eury’s introduction shows just how extensive they were and also several that were never done. This subject has been tapped across several issues before but this one is a complete concentration. TV might has supplanted […]

Dungeon Twilight: Vol. 4: The End Of Dungeon by Sear, Trondheim, Alfred and Mazan (graphic novel review).

Diving into a comic-book series with the final collection is probably not the best approach, and to be fair to this book, it is very much about tying up loose ends from the earlier stories. On top of this, the book is very much a European graphic novel rather than one from the English or […]

Micronauts by Michael Golden (comic-book retrospective: video).

Ed and Jim are back to look at the classic Micronauts comic-book, based on those amazing toys from the days of yore. Illustrated by Michael Golden, this was a gorgeous piece of comic candy from the 1980s. Marvel published two Micronauts series, mostly written by Bill Mantlo, until 1986, well after the toy line was […]

Back Issue #127 Jun 2021 (magazine review).

I will admit that I’ve never been a fan of American war comics. Saying that editor Mike Eury’s editorial of how he got Brian Bolland’s picture of Sgt. Rock for the cover is a pointer for all professionals to have some form of contact details on the Net these days. Like a lot of the […]

Aquaman/Suicide Squad: Sink Atlantis! by Rob Williams, Dan Abnett, José Luis and Joe Bennett (graphic novel review).

Well, at least I now know why Suicide Squad # 45-46 was segregated. It’s part of a five-parter with Aquaman # 38-40. Atlantis has risen from the ocean depths and the USA is getting agitated that it in or near their coastal waters. From the start I have confused thoughts on this. Whether its below […]

Draw! #29 Fall 2014 (magazine review).

Going back 7 years with this issue of ‘Draw!’, Mike Manley interviews and talks shop with illustrator Dave Dorman and we see samples of his work in progress. When it comes to digital, we share something in common in preferring a graphics screen rather than use a Cintiq tablet because it gives a better communication […]

Suicide Squad Volume 8: Constriction by Rob Williams, Diogenes Neves, Ronan Cliquet and Philippe Briones  (graphic novel review)

I was going to say this was the last volume of the ‘Suicide Squad’ in the ‘Rebirth’ series but there are references to two other stories and ‘Sink Atlantis’ and ‘Trinity’ have also been released as graphic novels. DC Comics really needs to be a timeline of graphic novel releases to ensure everything is tracked […]
