Back Issue #18 October 2005 (magazine review).

With Green Lantern as drawn by Neal Adams on the cover and the proclamation that Back Issue # 18 is the ‘Big Green Issue’, it’s hardly surprising what the topic is. Surprisingly, the opening interview with Peter David is about the Hulk, although considering he regained his intelligence by going grey, might have been an […]

Back Issue #10 June 2005 (magazine review).

Another early ‘Back Issue’ I pulled from the Neal Adams’ website was # 10 from 2005, sporting a Ra’s Al Ghul cover. Again, this gives some insight into TwoMorrows publications with ‘Rough Stuff’ as an art supplement inside its covers, this time showing Batman by a variety of artists. I especially like the Bill Sienkiewicz […]

Back Issue #118 February 2020 (magazine review).

I have to confess that when I first saw Back Issue # 118’s cover in the advances, I thought this was going to be some sort of 3D issue. The colouring is actually a look at psychedelic or day-glo colouring, although inside, this is really for a couple pages. Don’t forget your sunglasses. Obviously, any […]

Back Issue #117 December 2019 (magazine review).

With a glorious picture of Beta Ray Bill on the cover of the latest ‘Back Issue’, is a look at stand-ins from an idea sent in by readers to the editor, Mike Eury. There’s been a lot of them in both the DC and Marvel Universes. Considering the injuries many of the leads take, you […]

Back Issue #116 October 2019 (magazine review).

As Mike Eury explains in his editorial that the Mike Golden draw cover was drawn for him as a homage to Superman # 138 years ago and with a proper colour job used here. This ‘Back Issue’ falls in line with Halloween so the slant for horror is here this time. This begins with a […]

Back Issue #115 September 2019 (magazine review).

‘Back Issue’s topic this time is SF super-heroes. I decline to use the term ‘Sci-Fi’ as on its cover as it tends to represent inferior SF and many of the examples here clearly aren’t. Well, sort of. The dividing line between super-heroes and Science Fiction has always had some vagaries as a topic and the […]

Back Issue #114 August 2019 (magazine review).

Back Issue # 114’s theme is the black super-heroes of the 1970s. Hardly surprising then that Luke Cage gets the centre-point. Anyone missed in this issue is appearing # 117 and there’s a checklist for the other 17 characters on the letters page and what issues they appeared in. A couple of them have appeared […]

Back Issue #112 June 2019 (magazine review).

In a weird quirk of fate, I had Back Issue # 113 a few days before # 112. The problem with faulty time travel machines. As you can tell from the cover, the opening piece focuses on the Gerry Conway/Al Milgrom created character Firestorm. There are interviews with them and practically most of the other […]

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 […]

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 […]
