Comic Book Creator #19 Winter 2019 (magazine review).

For starters with this 19th issue of ‘Comic Book Creator’, we have the concluding part of the interview with underground/small press creator Mary Fleener and why she does cubism as well as cartooning. Although I’m not familiar with her work, she chats well and you get insight into the people she associates with. After that, […]

Comic Book Creator #18 Summer 2018 (magazine review).

The latest copy of ‘Comic Book Creator’ starts in several parts. That is some of the interviews are spread over more than one issue. That in itself is no big thing because if you did a page count, they’d fill each issue. For starters, we have part 1 of an interview with Mary F. Fleener […]

Comic Book Creator #17 Spring 2018 (magazine review).

It should hardly come as a surprise to seeing the cover of Comic Book Creator # 17 that the key subject is Wallace Allan Wood, occasionally called Wally, which he detested, preferring to be called Woody. From a British perspective, we tend to shorten forenames as a sign of endearment but some names tend to […]

Comic Book Creator # 9 Summer 2015 (magazine review).

For those of you who have been buying TwoMorrows Publications based off my reviews and have ever wondered about the effectiveness of their back issue ads, be assured, they do work and I spent a little loose money acquiring a few issues prior to when I started reviewing recently to fill some gaps in my […]

Comic Book Creator #16 Winter 2018 (magazine review).

I think the biggest surprise when reading the editorial to the latest ‘Comic Book Creator’ was learning that the famed Flo Steinberg, who ran the Marvel Comics office back in the 1960s, had died. Checking on-line, I found that was July last year. Sister mag, ‘Alter-Ego’ is covering her career later in the year. The […]

Comic Book Creator #15 Summer 2017 (magazine review).

I think the biggest shock in reading the latest edition of ‘Comic Book Creator was in Jon Cooke’s editorial that Bernie Wrightson died in March and Rich Buckler in May. Both solid comicbook artists in different ways and likely to be both missed by us older fans. Cooke has promised more in later issues. For […]

Comic Book Creator # 14 Winter 2017 (magazine review).

Although the latest edition of ‘Comic Book Creator’ is mainly devoted to artist Kelley Jones, it starts with Singapore artist Sonny Liew, who describes his rise to fame a slow climb rather than a quick jump. Although I haven’t come across his work before, Liew’s work is stylised with traces of sources from all over […]

Comic Book Creator #13 Fall 2016 (magazine review).

The dual cover of Comic Book Creator # 13 shows what is the meat of this issue, namely interviews with artists Ramona Fradon and Michael W. Kaluta, which tends to make light of the other material contained. Not being American, I’m not really that familiar with ‘The Wacky Pack’ stickers and an excerpt from the […]

Comic Book Creator # 12 Spring 2016 (magazine review).

Comic Book Creator # 12 can really be broken into two sections. One is an overview of Jack Kirby’s career at Marvel, then DC Comics, then back to Marvel before supplying storyboards in animation in California. Much of this should be familiar to any of you with an interest in comicbooks. There is also some […]

Comic Book Creator # 6 Presents Swampmen (magazine review).

I often wondered about the American love of swamps. Certainly, they have more of them than we have, so it’s pretty much a climate thing. When you include how dark and murky they are, it’s a natural fodder to think big beasties, other than alligators could stalk out of it or bond with humans and […]
