Showcase Presents Dial H For Hero by Dave Wood (graphic novel review).

Sockamagee! I have a vague memory of fondness for ‘Dial H For Hero’ when I was very young, so I bought this ‘Showcase’ volume to see what it’s like. The fun started in House Of Mystery # 156 (Jan 1966) when boy genius Robby Reed accidentally falls into a cavern and finds a strange dial. […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featurette.

A front and behind-the-scenes look at the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, where DC trail the Justice League’s formation and the whole thing gets kind of connected.

Alter-Ego # 137 (January 2016) (magazine review).

I knew last year that Jim Shooter was going to be interviewed in Alter-Ego # 137 and was part of the reason why I was pushing publisher John Morrow that we really should be reviewing their magazine output. After all, there are a lot of significant names in comicbooks but Shooter still holds the distinction […]

Ant-Man (2015) (Blu-ray film review).

I did wonder why they started with a second-generation Ant-Man rather than see his creator, Henry Pym, have his career.

When you consider that […]

Batman (TV Milestones Series) by Matt Yockey    (book review)

Giving a book the name ‘Batman’ could mean anything to do with a certain dark knight. However, the series title ‘TV Milestones’ directs you to the TV and specifically to 1966-68 and not once calling Batman ‘the caped crusader’ or the pair of them ‘the dynamic duo’. Mind you, he did mis-spell ‘effect’ as ‘affect’ […]
