Legionnaires TP Book One by Tom McGraw, Tom Peyer, Mark Waid, Stuart Immonen, Lee Moder and Jeffrey Mot (graphic novel review).

Legionnaires TP Book One by Tom McGraw, Tom Peyer, Mark Waid, Stuart Immonen, Lee Moder and Jeffrey Mot (graphic novel review).

In the introduction, writer Mark Waid points out that after John Byrne rewrote Superman’s history, removing his junior time-travelling adventures, it stranded the 30th century where the Legion Of Super-Heroes existed whose tales were so intermeshed with Superboy. I’m surprised the pocket universe aspect didn’t work, more so as the 52 realities of the DC […]

2000AD Prog 2074 (e-mag review).

All new stories started in the last extra large issue of ‘2000AD’ and they continue in this one, though it’s back to the standard 32 pages. It’s hard to cope with more Thrill-Power than that every week anyway, so no complaints. It’s worth scanning the background summaries on page 2 of the magazine to get […]

2000AD Prog 2073 (e-mag review).

Here’s a special extra large edition of ‘’2000AD’ that costs an extra pound. But it’s worth it and with all new stories starting up, albeit with old characters, this would be a good time to ‘jump onboard the galaxy’s greatest comic, Earthlets’ as the cover blurb rightly states. First up is Judge Dredd with a […]

In this issue‘2000AD’, most of the continuing stories reach a conclusion, albeit with the main characters left alive for the next yarn. Judge Lola is possessed by an alien spirit that intends to let its companions take over other bodies and only Judge Dredd and Judge Lamia can stop it. This is the conclusion and […]

Judge Dredd Megazine #393 (magazine review).

Here’s the latest ‘Judge Dredd Megazine’ featuring several episodes of on-going stories. Whereas ‘2000AD’ tends to give you five or six-page episodes, the bigger Meg has space for ten or twelve thrill-powered pages at a time as well as some text articles. One advantage of the anthology system of serials in British comics is that […]

2000AD Prog 2071 (emag review).

‘Judge Dredd: Live Evil’ (part 3) is beginning to add up after another exciting episode in the latest edition of ‘2000AD’. The Judge who can talk to the dead meets a ghostly alien presence who explains what’s been happening to her. The concept is similar to the Old Ones in Heinlein’s ‘Stranger In A Strange […]

2000AD Prog 2070 (e-comic review).

‘Judge Dredd: Live Evil (part two)’ opens this issue of ‘2000AD’ which is always nice as he is the star of the comic. The script is by Ian Edginton, who seems to write nearly everything in here nowadays and the art is by Dave Taylor using a limited palette, deliberately one presumes. This is part […]

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 […]
