Alter Ego #123 March 2014 (magazine review).

Seeing all the cover of ‘Alter Ego’, there are a couple that really stand out, not surprisingly as its drawn by Neal Adams, and I’ve waited a long time on this one to read its main content, a 48 page interview with comicbook writer and editor Dennis ‘Denny’ O’Neil, who sadly died last year. A […]

One thing that there has been an absence in the pages of ‘Alter Ego’ is Jack Kirby. As editor Roy Thomas explains, Kirby does have his own magazine at TwoMorrows and if he hadn’t then there would have been several issues devoted to him by now. So, after some thought, he came up with what […]

Alter Ego #1 Summer 1999 (magazine review).

I said I managed to acquire two Number Ones and Alter Ego # 1 is the other one and me not believing my luck. Like a lot of their early publications, you read up to half-way and then turn the magazine upside down and read the other section from the other side. This is also […]

Alter Ego #75 January 2006 (magazine review).

Looking at the Alex Ross cover of Alter Ego # 75, you would think the entire issue is all about ‘The Shazam Curse!’ However, the first section is a look at the art of the Alter Ego 1943 Calendar as depicted by Alex Ross in 2008. Shame this was done in Alter Ego’s black and […]

Alter Ego #59 June 2006 (magazine review).

I lucked out recently and managed to get a paper copy of Alter Ego # 59 on E-Bay. Seeing the cover here, I agree with editor Roy Thomas that it is rather striking. It’s the middle section of a painting by Arthur Suydam and you can look up the complete work on-line from his zombie […]

Alter Ego #168 March 2021 (magazine review).

I have to confess that when I saw the cover of the latest ‘Alter Ego’, I did feel a bit disorientated. After all, we are so used to seeing full page subjects rather than a noticeboard cover. However, this is contrary to the opening and truly nugget of the work of Paul Norris (1914-2007). Not […]

Alter Ego #105 October 2011 (magazine review).

It’s hard to believe that it was ten years ago that Alter Ego # 105 explored the Comics Code Authority. As Richard J. Amdt explains in the opening article, the CCA wasn’t the first but the third time some attempt to make some order of censorship into the American comicbook industry. Rather crazily, literacy was […]

Alter Ego #167 January 2021 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘Alter Ego’ is dedicated to Syd Shores (1913-1973). You might have known Shores as an inker in the 1960s at Marvel but back in the 1940s when they were called Timely, he was penciller on ‘Captain America’, westerns where he drew horses well and war comicbooks. Richard Arndt interviews his daughter, […]

Alter Ego #102 June 2011 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Alter Ego’ from 2011 focuses on the Green Lanterns and as editor Roy Thomas points out, there were two creators involved with the Alan Scott version and another three creators for the Hal Jordan version, each adding something to the creation. I’d forgotten that Alan Scott was originally going to be called […]

This latest edition of ‘Alter Ego’ shares more space with the Fawcett Collectors Of America (FCA), giving a 1996 San Diego Convention interview with comicbook artist Kurt Schaffenberger who worked on the original Captain Marvel for Fawcett and the Lois Lane comics for DC Comics amongst his other work, although he was less keen doing […]
