Disturbed Digest June 2018   (e-mag review)

As with ‘Bloodbond May 2018’, I bought ‘Disturbed Digest June 2018’ in the Smashwords summer sale for a mere dollar, so it’s good value financially. It’s good value artistically, too. The opening story is ‘As the Crow Flies’ by Lorraine Pinelli Brown. Set in the American corn-belt, it’s about Isaiah, a good ol’ boy who […]

Bloodbond May 2018    (e-magazine review)

‘Bloodbond’ is a quarterly magazine from Alban Lake Publishing that features stories about vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters, though only vampires seem to feature in this issue. ‘The Blood, The Guts, And The Dirt’ by J.G. Formato is set in a future where there’s a Ruling Class and a Working Class. Faun, as they call her, […]

Illustrators #22 (magazine review).

In the introduction to this latest edition of ‘Illustrators’, comicbook artist Dave Gibbons points out that being an artist’s agent was a good living in the 1950s and he joined their agency much later. As such, Bardon Press Features, headed by Barry Coker from London and Jordi Macabich from Barcelona literally fell into the role, […]

Alter Ego #153 July 2018 (magazine review).

Fabulous Flo Steinberg died last July at the tender age of 78, missing out on the ‘Alter Ego’ devoted to her presence in Marvel Comics first 5 years back in the 1960s. Neither an artist or writer, she was employed as Stan Lee’s secretary but, these days, she would be closer to an office manager […]

Back Issue #105 July 2018 (magazine review).

It should hardly come as a surprise looking at this edition of ‘Back Issue’ that the subject is martial arts characters in the comicbooks. The major influence of this obviously being a certain Bruce Lee. As the opening article is about ‘Shang-Chi, Master Of Kung Fu’ that shouldn’t be surprising as he looked more like […]

RetroFan #1 Spring 2018 (magazine review).

‘RetroFan’ covers have been in the TwoMorrows promotion literature for some time. Unlike their more comicbook-orientated magazines, this one focuses on TV and merchandise of not only super-heroes but also anything that would have ‘cult’ interest associated with it. So, if you’re been watching TV since the 1960s and much of American product has appeared […]

Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Four    (magazine review)

I always look forward to receiving the ‘Jack Kirby Collector’ and this one had an extra feature. Half of it was printed upside down! Which half depends on how you pick it up. I read 47 pages and came to a double page spread, after which there were another 47 pages the other way up. […]

Comic Book Creator #17 Spring 2018 (magazine review).

It should hardly come as a surprise to seeing the cover of Comic Book Creator # 17 that the key subject is Wallace Allan Wood, occasionally called Wally, which he detested, preferring to be called Woody. From a British perspective, we tend to shorten forenames as a sign of endearment but some names tend to […]

Back Issue #45 December 2010 (magazine review).

The Neal Adams cover alone for Back Issue # 45 should be its own selling point. In his editorial, Mike Eury points out that the picture was originally intended for the Warner Bros retail shops before the company dropped them. As the title says, what we have in this edition is the various odd couples […]
