Phantaxis: Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine May 2017 # 5   (emag review)

‘Phantaxis’ is a magazine of Science Fiction and fantasy short stories and novelettes. I found it doing market research and bought it to read on a well-known book website. The electronic version is cheap for 224 pages of good stuff. Really good stuff, to be fair. The first novelette, ‘Thinking Outside The Flock’ by Sarina […]

Alter Ego # 147 July 2017   (magazine review)

An unusual twist from the usual ‘Alter Ego’ format as we have a graphic examination of Otto Binder’s material for Quality, Timely and DC Comics. As Binder kept reasonably accurate records all shown here but this puts things into perspective and you see samples of his work and the artists he worked with over his […]

Jack Kirby Collection SeventyOne  (magazine review)

The theme of this issue og the ‘Jack Kirby Collection’ is Omega, following on from last issue’s Alpha. Omega is about endings or death but, by stretching a point, you can say that anti-life is about death, too, and squeeze in Darkseid and Apokalypse, which is really about endings and so is Ragnarok. To celebrate […]

Alien: Covenant: The Official Collector’s Edition (magazine review).

From the start, I am reading ‘Alien: Covenant: The Official Collector’s Edition’ prior to its disk release let alone seeing the film. As that won’t be until the autumn at the earliest, I’m assuming the regular selective amnesia will take effect for me not to dwell on what I already know. There are snippets of […]

Back Issue # 97 July 2017   (magazine review)

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is devoted to bird people or rather super-heroes with name associations to them more than powers similar to birds. Editor Mike Eury gives a list of characters that have already been covered in earlier issues and this issue is predominately DC characters. Having said that, both lists seem to omit […]

Illustrators #18 (magazine review).

My usual page flick of the latest issue of ‘Illustrators’ quickly revealed that it this isn’t a normal edition. If anything, it’s darn right cartoony. Hardly surprising when the opener is ‘Mad’ caricature artist Mort Drucker. Over the years, you’ve probably seen his art but not put a name to his drew them. Drucker was […]

Back Issue #96 June 2017 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is devoted to the sixty issues of ‘Marvel Fanfare’. In his interview, Al ‘Editori-Al’ Milgrom explains how it came to be. Editor-In-Chief Jim Shooter at the time explained to Milgrom that they advertising money wasn’t going to production so a direct distribution comic was possible without adverts, so they went […]

Draw! # 33 Spring 2017  (magazine review)

It shouldn’t come as a surprise from ‘Draw!’s cover that the first 40 pages are devoted to an interview with Bill Sienkiewicz and editor Mike Manley which is mostly shop talk about techniques and equipment. On the latter, it’s interesting to discover that’s been a drop in quality standards for pens and paper in America. […]

Alter Ego # 146 May 2017 (magazine review).

The cream at the top of the latest ‘Alter Ego’ magazine has to be the interview with the extremely prolific comicbook writer, Doug Moench. If you’ve ever read Marvel’s ‘Master Of Kung Fu’ you can tell how his various artists rose to his writing. Richard J. Arndt’s interview covers Moench’s career through to his time […]
