Marvel Comics In The 1960s by Pierre Comtois (book review).

The sixties, man. Social upheaval. Youth counter-culture. If you can remember it you weren’t really there, huh? I was there but I was too young for drugs or alcohol so I can remember some of it vaguely. It’s probably false memories of stuff that I read and listened to later and so associate with childhood.

Batman Detective Comics #19 (comic-book review).

I’ll confess from the start that other than the LSH, I’m not fully up to speed with all the changes that DC initiated with ‘The New 52!’ Reading this issue of ‘Batman Detective’ and the references within, the Dark Knight has lost another Robin already and his other Bat-associates aren’t exactly happy with him over […]

There’s an introduction with quotes from various debaters in an on-line […]

Modern Masters Volume One: Alan Davis edited by Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Being allowed to pick and choose which of the ‘Modern Masters’ books to review, I did finally decide to start from the beginning, mostly because I’m sure if you’re going to collect a set of books that would be the way you would start as well, even though this series isn’t intended to be read […]
