Essential Iron Man – Volume 5 by Len Wein and Mike Friedrich (graphic novel review).

In black and white on cheap paper, Essential Iron Man # 5 follows the usual pattern. It contains reprints of Iron Man # 62-75, # 77-87 and Iron-Man Annual # 3. Iron Man # 76 was probably a reprint and that’s why it’s not included. They have the cover which shows Iron Man fighting the […]

Essential Fantastic Four Volume 8 by John Buscema, Rich Buckler, George Perez, Ron Wilson, Sal Buscema, Roy Thomas, Bill Mantlo, Gerry Conway, Len Wein and Jim Shooter (graphic novel review).

Roy Thomas is great.

He was well read in pulp fiction, literary fiction and, most importantly, comics. Finally, in the mid-seventies, he […]

‘Essential Fantastic Four Volume 7’ features stories from Fantastic Four # 138 through to Fantastic Four # 159 with a couple of ‘Giant-Size’ issues thrown in for good measure. Over 500 pages, as usual with ‘Essentials’, so good value at least so far as pages per pound/dollar/euro pint of yak milk or whatever currency you […]

He also scripted ‘The Fantastic Four’ and […]
