The Fantastic Four (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) By Marco Beltrami and Philip Glass (CD theme review).
The fact that Phillip Glass co-scored this Marvel movie alongside Marco Beltrami is something of a surprise. Whilst the renowned US minimalist composer has flirted with genre before with films such as ‘Candyman’, this is the first time that he’s worked on a bona fide Hollywood blockbuster in ‘The Fantastic Four’. Alongside Beltrami, who has […]

The release of ‘The Incredible Herb Trimpe’ by Dewey Cassell & Aaron Sultan is at an unfortunate time, as the comicbook artist died on 13 April 2015 at the age of 76. Considering he had a career largely known for drawing the likes of the Incredible Hulk, Trimpe confessed that he wasn’t keen on super-heroes […]

And here’s the first movie trailer outing for Deadpool, the wise-cracking potty-mouthed superhero who proves you can never have enough humour in a superhero comic – or movie. Looks about what you’d expect.

No, you haven’t missed a super-hero team. ‘The League Of Regrettable Superheroes’ is a book by Jon Morris about American super-heroes from across the three ages with sillier names than usual.
