The Mandalorian (TV series review: by the Critical Drinker).

The first live action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian, comes under the critical gaze of the critic who is best known as the Critical Drinker. Will he be able to stay sober long enough to review this beast of a Western-inspired piece of scifi gun-slinging? Naturally, he will!

Cats (film review: Robbie Collin’s take).

Out Of The Hutch And Into The Fire: a Psi-Kicks story by: GF Willmetts.

Scobie looked at herself in the shop window. Still a rabbit, even after a second trip in a shape-changing time machine. She played with her ears before picking at one of her teeth and a tiny claw. She looked cute. ‘Sheeesh! You a rabbit.’ Scobie turned around and looked seeing no one and then looked […]

Pulling A Rabbit Out A Hat: The Making Of Roger Rabbit by Ross Anderson (book review).

The title of Ross Anderson’s book, ‘Pulling A Rabbit Out A Hat: The Making Of Roger Rabbit’, should clue you into what the subject matter is here. There is an apology in the introduction that Disney wouldn’t play ball and supply photos from the film for the book. Then again, reading how they bought the […]

Lunar Tunes by Wally Wood (graphic novel review).

I should point out this copy of ‘Lunar Tunes’ by Wally Wood is a second printing done in 2012. As editor Dave Spurlock points out in the introduction, this is Wood’s last work before he committed suicide rather than live with deteriorating eyesight and other medical problems. Don’t expect his detailed artwork as in his […]

Visions #2: Visions Of Humanity (magazine review).

The second issue of ‘Visions’ magazine landed on the doormat with a solid thud: a chunky, serious-looking magazine of 256 pages in red, black and white with monochrome illustrations, innovative fonts and unconventional layout. I had been very impressed with the first single-themed issue when it came out earlier in the year, so I was […]

Batman Book Three by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Part of my job as a reviewer is to ignore what others have written on something I’m likely to review so it’s only my opinion and honesty. I went into these Neal Adams ‘Batman’ books, liking the art but wondering where was the spark when it actually took off? Wait no longer. ‘Batman Book Three’ […]

Retro Fan #7 Winter 2020 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘Retro Fan’ focuses on two significant things. The first is that it has moved up to bimonthly status. The other is a look at ‘Charlie’s Angels’. Back in the day, I was a bigger fan of ‘Cagney & Lacey’, but it was the success of the former, which producer Barney Rosenzweig […]
