Mort Todd’s Monster Attack: The Ultimate Collection (book review).

I pulled ‘Mort Todd’s Monster Attack: The Ultimate Collection’ mostly because it contains art by John Severin. However, he was only one of its contributors. In his introduction, Mort Todd explains that he got ‘Monster Attack’ out under his publisher’s radar, got told to cancel it and then when they saw it sold half a […]

Codename Knockout: The Devil You Say by Robert Rodi, Louis Small Jr., Mark Farmer and Amanda Conner (graphic novel review).

I the introduction to ‘Codename Knockout: The Devil You Say’, series writer Robert Rodi says he wanted to update the dynamic of Peter O’Donnell’s Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin and couldn’t understand the lack of sexual dynamic between them. My own reaction to this is O’Donnell conceived the relationship as Garvin saw Modesty as his […]

Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007: Serpent’s Tooth by Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy (graphic novels review).

Over the years, I’ve become more reluctant to read media tie-ins, mostly because they aren’t canon and tend to be ignored by source. Thing is I had a curiosity as to how writer Doug Moench and artist Paul Gulacy tackled James Bond. ‘Serpent’s Tooth’ is a couple words quote from Shakespeare and used in the […]

Inferior 5 by Keith Giffin, Jeff Lemire, Michelle Delecki, Scott Koblish and, Scott Kolins (graphic novel review).

Firstly, don’t think this is the Inferior 5 of 1965 and later appearances. There are brief appearances of Dumb Bunny (although she no longer likes the name) and Awkwardman but things are dire here. This particular here is Dangerfield, Arizona and after the second Invasion by the Dominators and Khunds. Although this is a 5 […]

John Severin: Two-Fisted Comic Book Artist by Greg Biga and Jon B. Cooke (book review).

John Severin is regarded as the artist’s artist, although much of his work is outside of the superhero genre in America although he has inked the Hulk and Sub-Mariner back in the 1960s. However, beyond inking, he drew everything accurately and went from genre to genre, often turning up in westerns, war and horror, although […]

S.C.I. Spy: The Complete Trade Paperback by Doug Monech and Paul Gulacy (graphic novel review).

‘S.C.I. Spy: The Complete Trade Paperback’ was something I noted coming across it in the ‘Back Issue’ interview with Paul Gulacy who drew this work and came up with the initial idea with writer Doug Moench as a project they could work on together. I should point out if you’re looking for this graphic novel […]

This is why a realistic Batman is dull (video: article).

Rowan J Coleman just watched The Batman movie on the big screen, and although he enjoyed the characters, the directing, photography, and production design, he didn’t adore the noir detective-influenced movie. His sentiments, however, have less to do with the film’s quality and more to do with the character’s “take.” Because, once again, we have […]

Comixology: the greatest Comic-book app-reading system ever, until Amazon took it over (documentary: video).

In this forty-minute-long documentary, NS looks at how ComiXology, (now) Amazon’s digital comic book app, has just gotten an upgrade that has rendered everything useless. From comic-book consumers to comic-book producers, the environment of digital comics is becoming more difficult for everyone except Jeff Bezos’ chequebook. Allow NS to explain the spotted history of what […]
