Retro Fan #9 June 2020 (magazine review).

The cover of the latest ‘Retro Fan’ shows the late-1970s Captain America as played by actor Reb Brown in two TV movies. I think the most surprising thing with his interview with Mike Eury here was seeing the raise in fee Marvel wanted per episode compared to ‘The Incredible Hulk’ TV show that made it […]

StoryHack Action & Adventure Issue 6 – Kindle Edition (emag review).

Here be stories. ‘Rakes And The Pirates Of Malabar’ is by Mike Adamson, whose stuff I’ve read before and like, especially his novella ‘Last Train To Deakin Valley’. Here, he’s in pulp mode with a ripping yarn set in 19th century India. Edgar Quincannon Rakes is a former soldier heading back to England but, having […]

As the cover of the latest ‘Alter Ego’, shows, the first third of this book is devoted to comicbook writer Mike Friedrich. One of several junior fans that turned writer at DC Comics following on from Jim Shooter, although I doubt they realised his age at the time neither. Friedrich explains how writing comicbooks for […]

Alter Ego #65 February 2007 (magazine review).

With a cover featuring the work of comicbook artist Nick Cardy, it’s hardly surprising the main interview is with him. This issue of ‘Alter Ego’ predates ‘The Art Of Nick Cardy’ book they published and is part of the source of material for that book in its original form. From there, another perspective look from […]

Illustrators Special #7: Pirates (magazine review).

Interestingly, rather than focusing on artists who painted or illustrated pirate stories, David Ashford does a history trip through the entire genre as first developed in the UK.
