Back Issue #113 July 2019 (magazine review).

You know how it is. A new issue of ‘Back Issue’ arrives, ahead of # 112 which arrived a couple days later, and instead of just reading the opening article, I ended up reading 20 pages in my first sitting. As the cover shows, this issue covers the 1989 ‘Batman’ film and it’s hard to […]

Visions #1: Visions Of Home (magazine review).

It’s been a long time since a new UK-based print genre magazine has appeared, so I was delighted to discover ‘Visions’, which has arrived to fill that void. When I started writing reviews years ago, I particularly concentrated on this type of publication, switching gradually to novel reviews as the magazines disappeared one by one. […]

Retro Fan #4 Spring 2019 (magazine review).

The fourth issue of ‘Retro Fan’ and the cover shows things from the past are catching up with the present with a certain red-garbed guy but let’s start off with Martin Pasko’s look at the history of the Green Hornet which filled in a lot of gaps. I always thought that making Kato the inventor […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2018, Volume 135 #739 (magazine review).

I’ve been reading my copies of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ out of order recently, so this review of the September/October 2018 issue comes out some weeks behind my review of the November/December one. Normal service will be resumed shortly, I promise. There are 3 novelettes, 8 short stories, a poem and 6 […]

Illustrators #25 (magazine review).

The 25th issue of ‘Illustrators’ and it’s practically a cheesecake or girlie edition. Former editor Peter Richardson explains how the magazine first started as a means to show unfamiliar artists which often explains why I’m always finding surprises. They seriously look for the artists you might have missed. The first is French artist Milo Manara […]

Back Issue #111 April 2019 (magazine review).

For Back Issue # 111, the subject is alternative realities. As we’re already in an alternative reality where super-humans are the norm, this does need more elaboration? A little. For Marvel, it is a look at their ‘What If…?’ comicbook series exploring alternative choices wiuth the Watcher as host to what really happened in their […]
