Stan Lee… with great power comes great responsibility.

Stan Lee… with great power comes great responsibility.

Stan Lee is one of the greatest pensioners the planet – or at least, the geek planet – has ever known. He really doesn’t need to prove it to us, but he keeps on insisting on trying. Take for example the young teenager Bowe Cleveland, another victim of the school shootings that seem to permeate […]

Matt Baker: The Art Of Glamour edited by Jim Amash and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

You might not know the name Matt Baker. After all, he died in 1959, but you might have seen his art around occasionally and I did a check on Google and there’s a lot there for you to see. In his short career, heart problems from rheumatic fever when young finally killed him at the […]

Power Games (article).

an article by: GF Willmetts Something that comicbook fans have often debated over the decades is just who is the most powerful in their particular favoured universe. It becomes complicated when mixing across realities, mostly because the criteria for abilities varies. I mean, if you had to match Doctor Strange against Doctor Fate, the latter […]

Modern Masters Volume Five: J.L. García-López edited by Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

I have a confession to make. When I was allowed to make a selection from the TwoMorrows back catalogue to review, top of my list from their ‘Modern Masters’ collection was the book about artist José Luis García-López. Although I hadn’t seen a lot of his early non-super-hero work and then only his occasional fling […]

Judge Dredd: The Dark Judges by John Wagner, Alan Grant, Brian Bolland, Brett Ewins, Cliff Robinson (comic-book review).

Warning! Warning! ‘Judge Dredd: The Dark Judges’ is a super little book but beware duplicating stuff you may already have. Dredd is featured in the title because he’s the big name Judge of Mega-City One but he doesn’t feature all through. Pages 54-114 have the story with the overall title of ‘Four Dark Judges’ which […]

Legion Of Super-Heroes Volume 1: Hostile World by Paul Levitz, Francis Portela and Walter Simonson (comic-book review).

If there’s one aspect of the DC Universe that can be affected by the reality changes in the current time period, then it’s the 30th-31st century which houses the Legion Of Super-Heroes continuity that has existed since the early 1960s. Originally seen as a means to allow Superboy to be part of a team of […]

Legion Lost: Run From Tomorrow Volume One by Fabian Nicieza, Pete Woods and Tom DeFalco (comic-book review).

I haven’t read any of DC’s ‘New 52’ material yet but there was a need to see what changes had been made to Element Lad for an article I’m preparing. As there are two ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ graphic novel releases from the big change over, dividing the team, it made sense to read them both […]

Marie Severin: The Mirthful Mistress Of Comics by Denny Cassell with Arron Sultan (book review).

When I was a youngster, I was captivated by Marie Severin when she did a stint as penciller on ‘Doctor Strange’ in ‘Strange Tales’, mostly because she was the only lady comicbook artist I had seen and she was on par with the male artists. It always seemed odd that she would work far more […]
