Star Wars: Rogue One (a film review by Laurence Boyce).

***This review tries to avoid detailed plot information, but general spoilers about the film will be revealed*** With ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’, Disney takes a bold step to extend the franchise beyond the continuity of the core series of ‘Star Wars’ films. While the mythology of the Star Wars universe is very much woven into […]

The Legion: Foundations by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and Chris Batista (graphic novel review).

If you used the opening three pages of ‘The Legion: Foundations’ as the means to gauge the artistic merits of this graphic novel compiled from The Legion # 25-30 and The Legion Secret Files 3030’ from 2003-2004, you would probably put it back on the shelf. According to the back cover and opening credits, apart […]

Legion: Secret Origin by Paul Levitz, Chris Batista and Marc Deering (graphic novel review).a

I picked up this copy of ‘Legion: Secret Origin’ to confirm some research for any article on the Legion Of Super-Heroes that will go on-line end of the month. The material from this graphic novel was taken from Legion: Secret Origin # 1-6 in 2011-12. Unlike the other origins from the other 30th centuries, this […]

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 […]

Spider-Man/Deadpool Vol. 1 – Isn’t It Bromantic? by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness (graphic novel review).

If you want to get another comicbook title on the shelves to make sure you’re getting even more money, then a tip from me is to do a team-up. Get two characters who are selling their individual titles like gangbusters. Then join them together for a series of wacky adventures. Then sit back and watch […]

Machine Man Paperback by Tom Defalco, Herbe Trimpe and Barry Windsor-Smith (graphic novel review).

I was telling my dear brother about ‘Machine Man: The Complete Collection’ by Jack Kirby & Steve Ditko. ‘Complete?’ said he. ‘So it’s got the Barry Smith stuff as well?’ No, I admitted. In fact the ‘Complete Collection’ is quite incomplete as it doesn’t have the stories from Kirby’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ neither but, […]

Machine Man: The Complete Collection by Jack Kirby & Steve Ditko (graphic novel).

The first thing to say is that this ‘complete collection’ isn’t. ‘Machine Man’ originally featured in Jack Kirby’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ stories which may never be reprinted because of copyright issues, alas. He’s also reappeared in a mini-series illustrated by Barry Windsor-Smith in 1984 and another one in 1999 where he was turned into […]
