Back Issue # 103 April 2018    (magazine review)

By one of those quirks of getting lost in the post or something, I didn’t actually get a copy of Back Issue # 103 so only now getting my own copy and getting around to it. The subject focus is on editors and the problems they have to resolve. The opening article, ‘How I Defeated […]

Back Issue #71 April 2014 (magazine review).

Oddly, I selected this issue of ‘Back Issue’ because of Clea, as drawn by Arthur Adams, on the cover. You do have to wonder where are the hairdressers in the Dark Dimension for the niece of Dormammu? Actually, this ‘Back Issue’, as the bottom of the cover indicates, is a look at tryouts, one-shots and […]

Alter Ego #55 December 2005 (magazine review).

In my search for unavailable paper copies of ‘Alter Ego’, I picked up # 55, largely because of the Liberty Bell cover with actress Veronica Lake in the pose I spotted on-line. However, as the upsidedown back of the magazine was devoted to a 1943 calendar, this is the back cover. The front is actually […]

Illustrators # 29  (magazine review)

    This issue of ‘Illustrators’ should raise your dampened souls with a healthy dose of humour from cartoonists. Mind you, the first is Charles Addams (1912-1988) and a heavy dose of the macabre. Famed for ‘The Addams Family’ which evolved into the famous TV series and films, Addams’ gags are just effective as visual […]

Back Issue #2 (magazine review).

I have a current bugbear looking for Back Issue # 61. It was originally released double-size representing giant-size comicbooks Marvel and DC released in the 1970s with an Alex Ross Legion Of Super-Heroes cover, reprinted 18 months ago at its regular size and both sold out. Like any of you looking for something, I was […]

Comic Book Creator #22 Winter 2020 (magazine review).

There are lots of interest in this latest issues of ‘Comic Book Creator’. For starters, an interview with inker Joe Sinnott about his early career and doing the pencils as well and his ability to do likeness. Now 93 and retired, it makes for a fascinating read. Jeff Gelb does a remembrance of the late […]

Back Issue #119 April 2020 (magazine review).

As writer William Colosimo points out in the first of his articles in the latest issue of ‘Back Issue’, you would have to be of a particular age to recognise the earlier ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ which appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes # 18 in 1969 as drawn by Gene Colan and written by Arnold Drake.

Back Issue #64 (magazine review).

The subject of Back Issue # 64 in 2003 was to look at the back-up strips in the various DC Comics titles. When sales dropped for the likes of ‘Green Lantern’, rather than let the characters lie dormant after cancellation, they were turned into 8 page back-up features in the likes of ‘The Flash’. Indeed, […]
