Brass Sun Graphic Novel  by Ian Edginton and I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

‘The Brass Sun’ graphic novel collects several issues of the on-going series into a hardback format with good paper and high quality printing. I have reviewed the first few issues previously and don’t want to give away the plot of the later issues so this is an easy one. The setting is certainly original. The […]

The Ages Of Wonder Woman (No. 2) edited by Joseph J. Darowski (book review).

After ‘The Ages Of Superman’, you would think it strange to go onto Wonder Woman rather than the more obvious Batman, however, as the next two books in this series is going to focus on two Marvel’s X-Men and Avengers, I suspect the Dark Knight will get his opportunity soon enough. In the meantime, we […]

Ant-man trailer . . . change the name?

Marvel’s latest film extravaganza is a small little number … Ant-man. I never really got the point of that super-power, either. It’s like the power to turn into jelly. Or porridge. Why? Who can you save? A butterfly?

The Art Of Vampirella (artbook review).

  Who hasn’t heard of Vampirella, the alien vampire stranded on Earth in the scantily dressed bikini? She’s also a rare character in being created for Warren Magazines and when they closed their doors in 1983, given more, should we say because she isn’t undead, unlife in Harris Comics and even a Roger Corman film […]

Legion Of Super-Heroes: Enemy Manifest by Jim Shooter, Francois Manapul and Livesay (graphic novel review).

The LSH is nearly back in the United Planets good graces except that they are told that diplomatic channels must first be used with the nomadic planet, despite Brainiac 5 fearing the worst. Behind the scenes, ex-Princess Projectra of the now destroyed planet Orlando is planning her own haughty revenge with her few remaining people. […]

Legion Of Super-Heroes: Enemy Rising by Jim Shooter, Francois Manapul and Livesay (graphic novel review).

The reason why I’m keeping the ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ alive in reviews here despite DC Comics abandoning them last year by dwindling sales is because their parent company, Warner Bros, is eyeing them up for a cosmic film equivalent of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ and the LSH fits their bill. If I can influence sales […]

Inhumans by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee (graphic novel review)

With the hint that Marvel’s ‘The Inhumans’ are being considered for the cinema despite only having two graphic novels and one collection of their early stories out there as far as I can see, I thought I would take a look at this hardback combining the 12 part 2013 mini-series. After all, something must have […]

Modesty Blaise: The Grim Joker by Peter O’Donnell and Enric Badia Romero (graphic novel review).

Just when you think that the ‘Modesty Blaise’ newspaper strips couldn’t get better, writer Peter O’Donnell and artist Enric Badia Romero come up with ‘A Present For The Princess’. This story is unusual in that it cross-references to the novels as it features Steve Collier and his wife and dowser, Dinah, and reference to the […]

John Romita…And All That Jazz! by Roy Thomas and Jim Amash (book review).

John Romita…And All That Jazz! by Roy Thomas and Jim Amash (book review).

Comicbook artist John Romita always defines himself as second tier at Marvel, despite working nearly forty years exclusively there and whose previous work was mostly at DC Comics drawing romance comics. Considering he took on ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ after Steve Ditko left and made the book his own and became a major influence on other […]
