The Batcave Companion by Michael Eury and Michael Kronenberg (book review).

I should say from the start that ‘The Batcave Companion’ isn’t actually a look at the various versions of the Batcave, although there is indeed some reference to it but a look at how the down-in-sales Batman leading up to the early 60s was rejuvenated into the Earth-2 version most of you are familiar with […]

Creating The Filmation Generation by Lou Scheimer with Andy Mangels (book review).

Reviews can often tend to turn into confessionals. As reviewers, we get offered a lot of books to read and I have to admit I was somewhat reluctant to take this one on, mostly because the very few TV animated stories I’d seen of Filmation when young, I remember as having limited stock-footage animation and […]

From The Tomb edited by Peter Normanton (book review).

‘From The Tomb’ was a British fanzine from about the 1950s comics created by Peter Normanton, a long time fan of the genre. It had reached the staggering total of 64 readers with its third issue and Normanton’s ambitions were almost achieved. He expected to max at a hundred. Some success in the United States […]

Matt Baker: The Art Of Glamour edited by Jim Amash and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

Modern Masters Volume Five: J.L. García-López edited by Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

I have a confession to make. When I was allowed to make a selection from the TwoMorrows back catalogue to review, top of my list from their ‘Modern Masters’ collection was the book about artist José Luis García-López. Although I hadn’t seen a lot of his early non-super-hero work and then only his occasional fling […]

Marie Severin: The Mirthful Mistress Of Comics by Denny Cassell with Arron Sultan (book review).

When I was a youngster, I was captivated by Marie Severin when she did a stint as penciller on ‘Doctor Strange’ in ‘Strange Tales’, mostly because she was the only lady comicbook artist I had seen and she was on par with the male artists. It always seemed odd that she would work far more […]
