Illustrators #35 (magazine review).

    Only three artists are covered in this latest issue of ‘Illustrators’ but definitely big ones. Peter Richardson goes over the life of Alex Raymond (1909-1956), a life cut short by driving a speeding car with Stan Drake, who was lucky to survive. Raymond’s career not only with Flash Gordon, but with other newspaper […]

Back Issue #131 October 2021 (magazine review).

Editor Mike Eury points out in his editorial that TwoMorrows other publication, ‘The Kirby Collector’ deals with Jack Kirby’s comicbooks. However, after 130 issues they are going to look at the King’s legacy and what happened to the characters he created at DC Comics after he moved back to Marvel. The Demon was the most […]

Comic Book Creator #26 Summer 2021 (magazine review).

One of the many things I like about ‘Comic Book Creator’ is when it steps into areas that I normally don’t have any interest in and probably still don’t afterwards but it gives me knowledge. Point of fact with Jon Cooke’s look at Don Dohler’s ProJunior in the American underground comics, a rather oddly eyed […]

Retro Fan #17 November 2021 (magazine review).

The latest ‘Retro Fan’ is a Halloween special since last year’s edition sold so well and is now going to be a regular event. Getting this review out now should ensure, at least in the USA, you get your copy before the day. Rod Labbe goes over his early adventures making Aurora’s horror models and […]

Comic Book Artist #7 February 2020 (magazine review).

I pulled a rare paper copy of Comic Book Artist # 7 off the auction website. Hardly surprising with a Paul Gulacy cover. This 2000 edition focuses on kung fu, specifically a certain Shang-Chi, so we have interviews inside with both Paul Gulacy and Doug Moenech. What was a bigger surprise was how dense the […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2021, Volume 141 #757 (magazine review).

This 757th issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ has a beautiful astronomical image on the cover by David A. Hardy. While it is actually an image of Jupiter from Io it could almost be designed to illustrate Erin Barbeau’s story, ‘Ice Fishing On Europa’. Here, Theo is a one person scientific expedition […]

Back Issue #130 September 2021 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is rather unique as it focuses on when comicbook characters promote everything from food to…well…especially sugary food, even if they rarely indulged in it themselves and behind the scenes things. But first, Alan Kupperberg tells of his time being the editor of DC Comics promotional material. It would be interesting […]

Retro Fan #16 September 2021 (magazine review).

The opening section of the latest ‘Retro Fan’ focuses on ‘Logan’s Run’ as Anthony Taylor and his plans for a book on the subject failed through despite having various interviews taken over the years. So rather than waste them, they are here with actor Michael York, car creator for the TV series, Dean Jeffries (1933-2013) […]

Back Issue #53 December 2011 (magazine review).

Going back ten years, this ‘Back Issue’ is unique in having its title at the bottom of the cover. Looking at the Walt Simonson picture, it was either that or top right and then you have other problems of where to put the other copy without getting in the way of the barcode. OK, this […]
