Back Issue #110 February 2019 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘Back Issue’ has the sub-title ‘Make Mine Marvel’, so you should guess which company predominates. Interestingly, the first two articles centre on Carmine Infantino, outlining his history before focusing on his artwork at Marvel as he got his art mojo back after being fired as editor-in-chief at DC Comics. The second […]

Deadpool 2 (2018) (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Deadpool rules! Okay, admittedly this is an unconventional way to segue into a film review without sounding like a giddy fanboy. Nevertheless, the costumed glib-sounding gladiator is back on the scene in ‘Deadpool 2’ up to his usual trivial tricks in the Marvel Universe. After making a sensational splash as the wise-cracking warrior with the […]

The Forensic Comicologist: Insight From A Life In Comics by Jamie Newbold (book review).

Jamie Newbold is a comicbook collector, ex-police officer, and dealer hence the rather long-winded title to his book, ‘The Forensic Comicologist: Insight From A Life In Comics’. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the title until a flick through the pages and one of the boxed snippets about Neal Adams, which revealed Newbold […]

If you remember my reviewing of ‘Legionnaires Book […]

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 […]
