Batman: Harley Quinn (graphic novel review).

I’d seen the Alex Ross cover of Harley Quinn and the Joker before but not where it was used until I came across this graphic novel, ‘Batman: Harley Quinn’, featuring 7 stories across her career. It’s also a good way to get a sampling of her stories and to see how she has developed across […]

Batman: Gothic: Deluxe Edition by Grant Morrison and Klaus Janson (graphic novel review).

Much of Grant Morrison’s work at DC Comics was after I dropped out of comic reading. The original material for ‘Batman: Gothic’ was in Legends Of The Dark Knight # 6-10 in 1990 and although I collected the title back then, it wasn’t until I got this graphic novel that I found that out. Little […]

Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice (graphic novel review).

I came across ‘Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story’ by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice through one of TwoMorrow magazines and looked it up. Oddly, Wonder Woman is a peripheral character in this 1998 graphic novel. An antique cairn is found on a farm in Ireland and a message sent to Wonder […]

Back Issue #2 (magazine review).

I have a current bugbear looking for Back Issue # 61. It was originally released double-size representing giant-size comicbooks Marvel and DC released in the 1970s with an Alex Ross Legion Of Super-Heroes cover, reprinted 18 months ago at its regular size and both sold out. Like any of you looking for something, I was […]

Wallace Wood Presents Shattuck (graphic novel review).

When I was reading Wallace Wood’s ‘Cannon’, I came across a reference to his western strip ‘Shattuck’ and thought I ought to give it a look. Woody did the layouts with Nick Cuti and the biggest surprise, novices Dave Cockrum, Howard Chaykin and inkers Jack Abel and Syd Shores working from them. Oddly, it cuts […]

Modern Masters Volume Nineteen: Mike Ploog by Roger Ash and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

I think my first encounter with Mike Ploog’s comicbook artwork was with Marvel’s ‘Man-Thing’, although I knew a little more about his animation background later. With the nineteen volume of ‘Modern Masters’, it seemed too good an opportunity to see more of his work and background. Mike Ploog was born in 1942 in a remote […]

Comic Book Creator #22 Winter 2020 (magazine review).

There are lots of interest in this latest issues of ‘Comic Book Creator’. For starters, an interview with inker Joe Sinnott about his early career and doing the pencils as well and his ability to do likeness. Now 93 and retired, it makes for a fascinating read. Jeff Gelb does a remembrance of the late […]
