A Demonstration Of Practical Armageddon  :  a Moppi story by; GF Willmetts

Given the choice between them being nice or being tortured, I’d go for being nice every time. At least, I could say no over a meal and a drink. I moved gently, trying to avoid groaning and pleasing the camera in the corner watching me. Let them think I was a lot tougher than I […]

Fight like a girl? Mass super-star all-female boss battle (weird news: video).

Some times, all you need is a little act of mass kindness to start a virtuous circle of love flowing around the world. Other times, what you really need is a mass super-star all-female boss battle brawl*. See Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Hallie Berry, Zoe Saldana, Thandie Newton, Margot Robbie, Cameron Diaz, and many others […]

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 […]

Imaginary Numbers (InCryptid novels book 9) by Seanan McGuire (book review).

Authors are very good at hunting out little documented information and embroidering it to produce something potentially spectacular. It is rare for anything to be totally original, that comes with imaginative weaving of new approaches with the extant. A cryptid is an animal whose existence is unsubstantiated. Examples such as Bigfoot and Yeti are common […]

Storyhack Action & Adventure Issue Five (e-magazine review).

The coronavirus lockdown has led many publishers and authors to peddle their works at big discounts or even free. Such was the case with Storyhack Action & Adventure Issue Five. It’s a magazine I always meant to read one day and I even have issue 3, bought and paid for, tucked away on my kindle. […]

Batman: Gothic: Deluxe Edition by Grant Morrison and Klaus Janson (graphic novel review).

Much of Grant Morrison’s work at DC Comics was after I dropped out of comic reading. The original material for ‘Batman: Gothic’ was in Legends Of The Dark Knight # 6-10 in 1990 and although I collected the title back then, it wasn’t until I got this graphic novel that I found that out. Little […]

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 […]

Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice (graphic novel review).

I came across ‘Wonder Woman: The Once And Future Story’ by Trina Robbins, Colleen Doran and Jackson Guice through one of TwoMorrow magazines and looked it up. Oddly, Wonder Woman is a peripheral character in this 1998 graphic novel. An antique cairn is found on a farm in Ireland and a message sent to Wonder […]
