Back Issue #124 December 2020 (magazine review).

Whoever knows fear is going to burn at the touch of this ‘Back Issue’, sporting a cover of the Man-Thing as, inside, Roger Ash goes over his origin and first comicbook history. Oddly, I never made the name connection between Man-Thing and Ben Grimm’s moniker that I couldn’t tell them apart, although I do understand […]

Draw! #18 Fall 2009 (magazine review).

Before you ask why have I upped the number of early ‘Draw!’ issues I’m reviewing, its mainly because buying as a bundle means I have more of them than the other magazines I bought at the same time. Economical cheaper, but a lot to read. The first interview editor Mike Manley this time is with […]

This is my second issue of ‘Jack Kirby Collector’, TwoMorrows Publishing’s regular dive into the life and legacy of Marvel and DC visionary Jack Kirby and I’m beginning to see how each issue fits together.
