Comic Book Artist No. 3 Winter 1999    (magazine review)

One of the odd side effects of reading some of TwoMorrows books and website is seeing the adverts for earlier editions of their books and magazines and then finding, especially with the latter, that they are out of print and only available digitally. If I’m especially interested in a particular title, then I would do […]

Showcase Presents Batman TP Volume 05 Paperback by Mike Friedrich, Frank Robbins and Dennis O’Neil  (graphic novel review)

At last, the DC Showcase volumes have reached the point where Batman is getting good. I recently looked up the old Alley Awards on-line and the ‘Batman’ titles twice won the same award: strip most in need of improvement, even in 1962 when regular penciller Carmine Infantino scooped the best artist award. ‘Showcase Batman Volumes […]

The Spirit (1987) (DVD review).

Coincidences and luck happen a lot to me. When I reviewed Bob Andelman’s book ‘Will Eisner: A Spirited Life’ last month, I also commented that it would be interesting to see the 1986 TV pilot of ‘The Spirit’, saying it couldn’t be any worse than Frank Miller’s 2009 film version. A look through US Amazon, […]

Kick-Ass 3 by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. (graphic novel review).

Reading ‘Kick-Ass 3’ only took a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. I’ve seen the original film and missed the second but this was my first encounter with the comicbook source material. I’m sure it will be a film, too. ‘Kick-Ass’, in case you didn’t know, is Dave Lizewski, a teenage geek who decided […]

Modesty Blaise: The Killing Distance by Peter O’Donnell and Enric Badia Romero (graphic novel review).

Another volume of ‘Modesty Blaise’ to set you up for the summer and we’re on a steady countdown to the final stories in a year or so but neither writer Peter O’Donnell nor artist Enric Badia Romero show no sign of losing their pace. ‘Guido The Jinx’ has Modesty and Willie Garvin on a six […]

Will Eisner: A Spirited Life by Bob Andelman (book review).

I’m going to presume from the start that you’re a comicbook fan and that you have at least heard of Will Eisner or his most famous creation, Denny Colt aka The Spirit. Not to be confused with that dark film that Frank Miller made. You might even have heard of some of Eisner’s other works, […]

Final Crisis: Legion Of 3 Worlds by Geoff Johns, George Pérez and Scott Koblish (graphic novel review).

It was only from reading Back Issue # 68 last month that prompted me to locate a copy of the combined 5-part ‘Final Crisis: Legion Of 3 Worlds’ graphic novel to read the disclosure of who the Time Trapper was. A constant foe of the 31st century Legion Of Super-Heroes in all their realities, his […]

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. […]
