Legion Of Super-Heroes: Enemy Rising by Jim Shooter, Francois Manapul and Livesay (graphic novel review).

Legion Of Super-Heroes: Enemy Rising by Jim Shooter, Francois Manapul and Livesay (graphic novel review).

The reason why I’m keeping the ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ alive in reviews here despite DC Comics abandoning them last year by dwindling sales is because their parent company, Warner Bros, is eyeing them up for a cosmic film equivalent of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ and the LSH fits their bill. If I can influence sales […]

Inhumans by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee (graphic novel review)

With the hint that Marvel’s ‘The Inhumans’ are being considered for the cinema despite only having two graphic novels and one collection of their early stories out there as far as I can see, I thought I would take a look at this hardback combining the 12 part 2013 mini-series. After all, something must have […]

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

Just when you think that the ‘Modesty Blaise’ newspaper strips couldn’t get better, writer Peter O’Donnell and artist Enric Badia Romero come up with ‘A Present For The Princess’. This story is unusual in that it cross-references to the novels as it features Steve Collier and his wife and dowser, Dinah, and reference to the […]

John Romita…And All That Jazz! by Roy Thomas and Jim Amash (book review).

Comicbook artist John Romita always defines himself as second tier at Marvel, despite working nearly forty years exclusively there and whose previous work was mostly at DC Comics drawing romance comics. Considering he took on ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ after Steve Ditko left and made the book his own and became a major influence on other […]

The Art Of The Simon And Kirby Studio by Mark Evanier, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby (book review).

Firstly, I should mention that my copy of this book, ‘The Art Of The Simon And Kirby Studio’ by Mark Evanier, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby is a pdf file sent by the publisher, which is great and I’m grateful but I suspect the whole darn thing will look even better as the real big […]

Vandroid by Tommy Lee Edwards and Dan McDaid (graphic novel review).

Since comicbooks became respectable, more or less, there are many films based on that medium in our modern era: ‘From Hell’, ‘V For Vendetta’ and all the super-hero stuff that’s taken over the cinema. ‘Vandroid’ is something different, a comic based on a film that was never made. A studio fire and other disasters kept […]

The Ages Of Superman (No. 1) edited by Joseph J. Darowski (book review).

The Ages Of Superman (No. 1) edited by Joseph J. Darowski (book review).

‘The Ages Of Superman’ is the first of four books looking at how super-heroes have changed over the decades. I suspect familiarity with the stories will help you to assess the eighteen writers essays here. I was expecting to see them focusing purely on the Man of Steel but was glad to see diversity to […]

Marvel Vehicles Owner’s Workshop Manual by Alex Irvine (book review)

In many respects, I would have thought Haynes would have covered the Marvel Universe before now but finally we have the ‘Marvel Vehicles Owner’s Workshop Manual’, with material from the US Insights Edition. It might not show you how to repair them but you can see the inner workings and how much of Iron Man’s […]

The Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) (DVD film review).

Considering how quickly copies of ‘The Guardians Of The Galaxy’ have vanished off my local supermarket’s shelves in the past week, it won’t be much of a guess what will be opened on Yuletide morning this year for a lot of teens and probably adults. My first reaction while watching it is the next ‘Star […]
