Alter Ego # 120 (magazine review).

I think the cover of Alter Ego # 120 should give away why I pulled this magazine that was released in 2013. This was the first cover for The X-Men # 10, as drawn by Jack Kirby and inked by Chic Stone and one of those rare instances, Stan Lee decided he wanted something different. […]

The Extinction Parade, Volume 2: War by Max Brooks and Raulo Caceres (graphic novel review).

When I interviewed Max Brooks in March this year for SFCrowsnest, he was over in London to promote ‘The Extinction Parade, Volume 2: War’. This is the second instalment in the graphic novel adaptation of Brooks’ 2010 short story ‘The Extinction Parade’ and, as with volume 1, which I reviewed here in August 2014, the […]

Back Issue # 68 (magazine review).

Although I’ve nearly completed my whistle-stop tour of ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ material outstanding since DC Comics have removed them from their titles. I thought it was about time I had a look at TwoMorrows’ magazine Back Issue # 68 that gave all its attention to the 30th century from the 1970s-80s, although there is some […]

Essential Avengers Volume 3: The Avengers # 47-68 & Annual # 2: by John Buscema and Roy Thomas (graphic novel review).

‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ being the big movie of the moment. I thought I would dive into my extensive ‘Essential’ archives and dig out the source material. This is conveniently located in Essential Avengers Volume 3. I have read the stories oft times before but reviewing them was a pleasure only slightly ruined by the […]

Elric Volume 2 – Stormbringer (Michael Moorcock’s Elric) by Robin Recht, Julien Blondel and Didier Poli (graphic novel review).

‘Elric Volume 2 – Stormbringer (Michael Moorcock’s Elric), the second volume of the latest incarnation of Elric by Julien Blondel and friends is as accomplished as the first, Elric: Volume 1: The Ruby Throne’, and clearly a labour of love for all concerned. The artistic team has changed slightly as Didier Poli only drew the […]

The Art Of Neal Adams (art book review).

In many respects, ‘The Art Of Neal Adams’ is a whistle-stop tour of at least fifty years in the famous comicbook artist’s career and showing how extensively he’s been able to find work in everything from there to advertising to storyboarding and is still in continuous demand in his seventies. Back when I was growing […]

Tarzan Versus The Barbarians by Burne Hogarth and Don Garden    (graphic novel review)

Although the title says ‘Tarzan Versus The Barbarians’, there are in fact four stories of ‘Tarzan’ from the Sunday newspaper strips May 1940-October 1943 between the covers. Differentiating between them is a bit difficult before there is no end noted between them, just Tarzan moving on in his travels although the footer does point at […]
