The Legion Volume 2 by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and Oliver Coipel (graphic novel review).

My annual fix of Legion Of Super-Heroes starts with the second volume of Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and Oliver Coipel, ‘The Legion’. With this version of the LSH, an explosion has propelled nine Legionnaires and part of the headquarters across the galaxy. With no way to get back, Element Lad placed them in tromium crystal […]

Native Americans In Comic Books: A Critical Study by Michael A. Sheyahshe (book review).

I often wonder why there aren’t more books about ethnic minorities in comicbooks. As author Michael A. Sheyahshe points out in his introduction to ‘Native Americans In Comic Books: A Critical Study’, this is the first book on the subject and on his own people. Sheyahshe is a Native American or as he prefers to […]

Alter Ego #155 November 2018 (magazine review).

I have to confess to not knowing much about comicbook artist and writer Norman Maurer (1926-1986) but with Richard Arndt’s interview with his widow, Joan, I learnt a lot. Joan, by the way is the daughter of Moe Howard and the connection to ‘The Three Stooges’ should slap you on the face considering Maurer drew […]
