The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2018, Volume 135 #738 (magazine review).

The first thing to note about the July/August issue of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is the wonderfully retro-cover painting. Bob Eggleton’s ‘Big Mars’ shows a 1950s-style angular rocketship sitting vertically on the craggy surface of Deimos, the smaller of Mars’ two moons, while the sky above is dominated by a huge Mars, […]

Back Issue #107 September 2018 (magazine review).

I was surprised with the cover of this issue of ‘Back Issue!’ featuring the Archies but then, this issue is all about the Archie Comics. They were also formerly MLJ Comics but, like DC Comics, adopted their more popular collective name. As is pointed out in the introduction, there isn’t just a Big Two, but […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/Jun 2018, Volume 134 #737 (magazine review).

I’m a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’, so this time I’ll focus in on my highlights from the May/June issue, rather than covering everything as I usually do. For the sake of completeness, though, this issue included five novelettes, six short stories and eight articles. Before I […]

Back Issue! #106 August 2018 (magazine review).

In some respects, looking at the latest issue of ‘Back Issue!’, you would think that it’s moving into ‘Alter Ego’ territory. It’s not really as the sub-title. Golden Age In Bronze Age’ reveals its having the older characters still carrying on with their own lives in a different decade…mostly. It’s also pretty much Roy Thomas’ […]

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 […]

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, […]
