The Best Of The Victor: The Top Boys’ Paper For War, Sport And Adventure! by Andy McNab and Morris Heggie (book review).

‘The Best Of The Victor’ aims to bring you the best of the old British weekly comic ‘The Victor’ and it succeeds pretty well. Alf Tupper, ‘The Tough of the Track’, is here, running tireless miles powered only by bubble and squeak. For non-British readers I should explain that this is leftover cabbage and potato […]

Jack Kirby Collection Seventy-Three (magazine review).

The theme for the 73rd issue of ‘The Jack Kirby Collector’ is one-shots. I’m not sure themes are a good idea as it forces writers to contort the material to fit or seem to fit the topic. Anyway, I’ll pick out some highlights. The ‘Opening One -Shot’ is by editor John Morrow and focuses on […]

Comic Book Creator #16 Winter 2018 (magazine review).

I think the biggest surprise when reading the editorial to the latest ‘Comic Book Creator’ was learning that the famed Flo Steinberg, who ran the Marvel Comics office back in the 1960s, had died. Checking on-line, I found that was July last year. Sister mag, ‘Alter-Ego’ is covering her career later in the year. The […]

Daredevil: Father by Joe Quesada (graphic novel review).

While wandering around my local town centre in December looking for Christmas presents, I happened to find a comicshop. As a treat for myself I bought a paperback edition of the graphic novel ‘Daredevil: Father’ for £14.99. It has been almost four years since I last reviewed a graphic novel and I could kick myself […]

Draw #34 winter 2018 (magazine review).

The opening of Draw # 34 has a massive 32 page interview with artist Greg Hildebrandt where he explains how he and his twin brother, Tim, did various creative pursuits before falling into illustration. Doing the poster for 1976 ‘Star Wars’ film at short notice and time sort of cemented themselves into the industry. Mike […]

Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane, Is It A New Super-Costume?: an article by: GF Willmetts,

For the 1000th edition of ‘Action Comics’, Superman has a new costume drawn by Jim Lee.

Alter Ego # 150 January 2018 (magazine review).

150 issues of ‘Alter Ego’ would need to cover another milestone and as you can see from its cover, the 95th year of Stan Lee. Editor Roy Thomas’ introduction says that there is little difference between the public and private faces of Stan Lee, who comes over as very open and honest. To start, there […]

Comicbook Time  :  an article in temporal movement by: GF Willmetts

One of the biggest dilemmas in comicbook universes is the measure of time. Back in the 1960s, it was considered that seven comicbook universe years equalled one of ours. All well and good, except they seemed to have at least four Christmases per year in that time. Maybe their version of the Earth has a […]

Groovy by Mark Voger (book review).

I have to confess to a little confusion when I saw the cover of Mark Voger’s book ‘Groovy’ back in the summer. TwoMorrows is known principally for their interest in comicbooks and despite the cartoon head of a dollybird on the cover, this book is about the flower power/hippy culture from 38000BC to April 1970AD.

The Mercenary: The Definitive Editions:Vol.1 The Cult Of The Sacred Fire (Mercenary The Definitive Editions) by Vincente Segrelles (book review).

According to the hype, ‘The Mercenary 1: The Cult Of The Sacred Fire’ is something of a classic which is why we have this anniversary edition forty years after the first printing. It’s a superior reproduction made from scans of the original paintings and a very lovely book it is, too, with hard covers and […]
