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 […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Mar/Apr 2018, Volume 134 # 736  (magazine review)

I don’t always mention the art that graces the covers of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’, so I’ll start this review by saying that I love the picture on the front of the March/April issue, beautifully painted by Cory and Catska Ench. It introduces us to the four main characters in the opening […]

Draw #26 Fall 2013 (magazine review).

As you can tell, as I dip back 5 years, from the 26th cover of ‘Draw!’, the opening interview is with Joe Jusko, cover artist for many a comicbook cover and poster. He reveals, early in his career, he experimented with various mediums before settling on LiquidTex acrylics because it dries fast. I tend to […]

Back Issue # 104 June 2018 (magazine review).

As you can tell from the cover of this issue of ‘Back Issue’, we are in the DC Universe’s backyard or rather the ‘Fourth World’ that was created by Jack Kirby, only this time after he left it. No one has called it ‘‘Fourth World AK’, although the full words are on the cover. It […]

On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol. 28 no. 4 #107 (magazine review).

On Spec # 107 contains seven short stories, a poetic tribute to Ursula Le Guin, another poem, two interviews, an editorial and a report on Can-Con 2017. As usual, I’ll focus on the fiction. Parson has an odd power in ‘When Winter Comes’ by Hayden Trenholm. People want to please him. Ever since he was […]

Comic Book Creator # 9 Summer 2015 (magazine review).

For those of you who have been buying TwoMorrows Publications based off my reviews and have ever wondered about the effectiveness of their back issue ads, be assured, they do work and I spent a little loose money acquiring a few issues prior to when I started reviewing recently to fill some gaps in my […]

Alter Ego #152 May 2018 (magazine review).

I have to confess that I have never heard of Larry Ivie (1936-2014) until now. However, reading Sandy Plunkett’s extended article here, Ivie was one of the founding American comicbook historians, developing writing and art skills, the latter of which can be seen growing over the feature. He was also the chap to go to […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jan/Feb 2018, Volume 134 #735.

The trouble with reviewing genre magazines is that they come out as regularly as clockwork, whether or not you’ve finished reading the previous issue. The March/April 2018 issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is already staring at me from the top of my ‘To Be Read’ pile, so I should really get […]
