Back Issue #116 October 2019 (magazine review).

As Mike Eury explains in his editorial that the Mike Golden draw cover was drawn for him as a homage to Superman # 138 years ago and with a proper colour job used here. This ‘Back Issue’ falls in line with Halloween so the slant for horror is here this time. This begins with a […]

Retro Fan #6 Fall 2019 (magazine review).

The opening features of the latest edition of ‘Retro Fan’ is pure Americana as I can’t recall them ever being shown over here. The first is an interview by Dan Johnson with TV horror host Svengoolie although I think he should have been called Son Of Svengoolie as he’s the second of that name. Amusingly, […]

Illustrators #27 (magazine review).

For a change, the 27th edition of ‘Illustrators’ takes a western slant, looking at the work of two significant artists and a certain masked man. If I haven’t hooked you into buying these magazines by now, you will know that it’s the art regardless of subject that is always a point of interest.   Our […]

Comic Book Creator #20 Summer 2019 (magazine review).

Looking at the cover of the latest issue of ‘Comic Book Creator’ and you would think it should be called a ‘Joe’ issue, as with the exception of Craig Yoe and Kristina Deak-Linser, that’s the common denominator for the rest. Mind you, the sub-title is ‘The “Not Your Average Joes” Ish’. Craig Yeo was and […]

Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Seven (magazine review).

The theme of this issue of ‘Jack Kirby Collector’ is monsters and bugs, mostly because monsters wasn’t quite a big enough theme for a whole issue and partly because bugs enlarged by radiation count as monsters, too. My favourite article this issue was a piece for the ‘Retrospective’ section entitled ‘I Remember… Vandoom, Master Of […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Mar/Apr 2019, Volume 136 #742 (magazine review).

The March/April 2019 issue of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ contains a bumper crop of pieces, including a novella, three novelettes, eight short stories, two poems and six articles. I’ll highlight a selection of my favourites. The longest item here is R.S. Benedict’s fantasy novella ‘All Of Me’, which follows the complicated fortunes […]

Back Issue #115 September 2019 (magazine review).

‘Back Issue’s topic this time is SF super-heroes. I decline to use the term ‘Sci-Fi’ as on its cover as it tends to represent inferior SF and many of the examples here clearly aren’t. Well, sort of. The dividing line between super-heroes and Science Fiction has always had some vagaries as a topic and the […]

Alter Ego #160 September 2019 (magazine review).

As promised by editor Roy Thomas a few months back, the latest issue of ‘Back Issue’ is dedicated to comicbook artist/creator Steve Ditko (1927-2018). We all know Ditko’s reputation as being elusive but even from Thomas’ editorial, he came over as being sensitive and responded to early American fanzines by supplying material from time to […]

The Official Kiss Magazine Poster Book #2 (magazine review).

We were offered a selection of magazines from Fantasm Media. Principally, looking at their website, they cover horror and Kiss, so which my fellow reviewer will be looking at the former, I thought I’d look at the latter, especially as the band are doing their ‘End Of The Road Tour’ right now. ‘The Official Kiss […]
