Doctor Who: Myths And Legends by Richard Dinnick  (book review)

As the eras of our own stories about the mythical character of the Doctor pass into history, we have a document sent by Gallifreyan High Command, presumably through a tricky wormhole, which covers some of their own experiences of the man and other legendary happenings. The introduction by Chancellor Drakirid, historian to the Bureau of […]

Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice Vol. # 1  (graphic novel review)

Initially, I thought ‘Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice’ fit in with the ‘Neil Gaiman’s Teknophage’ and ‘Neil Gaiman’s Mr. Hero’ saga and it does but there’s no evidence of that in this volume. However, I snuck a peek at Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice Vol. # 2 and Mister Henry Phage puts in an appearance there so […]

Neil Gaiman’s Mr. Hero Complete Comics Vol. 1  (graphic novel review)

Neil Gaiman’s Mr. Hero is a character in the Teknophage epic which was dreamed up by Neil Gaiman in the early 1990s but folded in a comicbook bust the like of which happens every ten years or so. It’s fair to point out that this volume can be read as a standalone but does tie […]

Neil Gaiman’s Teknophage Vol. # 1   (graphic novel review)

Big picture first. ‘Teknophage’ is one of several comics published back in the early 1990s by Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein, who created the Sci-Fi Channel. Comics were booming and they thought the time was ripe for it. Neil Gaiman, a rising star then, a superstar now, was invited to come up with concepts to […]

The Joker: A Serious Study Of The Crown Prince Of Crime edited by Robert Moses Pleaslee and Robert G. Weiner  (book review)

Editors Robert Moses Pleaslee and Robert G. Weiner assert in the introduction that of all the comicbook villains, the Joker stands head and shoulders as the most memorable. I imagine he has a laugh about that, too. The runner-up is Marvel’s Magneto, so it would be interesting to see a serious book on the magnetic […]
