Reed Crandall: Illustrator Of The Comics by Roger Hill (book review).

Reed Crandall: Illustrator Of The Comics by Roger Hill (book review).

I have to confess to not really knowing much about comicbook artist Reed Crandall. He came to prominence in the 1940s-50s and a little before my time and I wasn’t really picking up that many Warren magazines in his last phase in the 1960s. None of which is helped by not having a by-name associated […]

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Volume 7 – War Of Gods by Nick Abadzis, Giorgia Sposito and Elonora Carlini  (graphic novel review)

‘War Of Gods’ is the conclusion to the story about Anubis which started in the previous volume, ‘Sins Of The Father’. The writers are Nick Abadzis and James Peaty with artwork by Giorgia Sposito and Warren Pleece. It has a bonus adventure from year 3. There is a lot to juggle here with the Doctor […]

Who Was That Masked Man?  :  an article of hidden identity by: GF Willmetts

For the super-hero or even the super-villain come to that, if you don’t want anyone to recognise you in civvies, then a disguise is essential. A few are content to go bare-faced, convinced that a change in posture and glasses and speech are sufficient. For the others, it has to be a cowl and/or mask. […]

Future Shock: The Story Of 2000AD    (Blu-ray review)

Britain was troubled in the late 70s. The unions were on strike and dead bodies were piling up in the streets or was it garbage? There were power cuts when the coal miners stopped work and industry became even less industrious than usual as the lights went out. In desperation, the public voted Margaret Thatcher […]

Back Issue # 98 August 2017  (magazine review)

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is devoted to DC Comics material with an enormous 21 pages devoted to their 50 issue ‘Secret Origins’ title by John Wells and, more importantly, at the end which characters and teams never made it in time before the title was cancelled. A real memory stirrer. It’s also a strong […]

The Chimera Brigade: Volume 1 by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin, Gess and Celine Bessoneau  (graphic novel review)

Like another graphic novel collection I read last week, ‘The Chimera Brigade’ opens with a cast list and a page of text introduction to set the scene. I don’t mind this at all. ‘Show don’t tell’ they say in writers classes but a concise summary of the basic set up can spare the poor reader […]

Warhammer 40,000: Will Of Iron by George Mann, Tazio Bettin, Enrica Eren Angiolini and Rob Steen   (graphic novel review)

‘Warhammer 40,000: Will Of Iron’ collects Warhammer 40,000 # 0-4. It’s part of the extensive Warhammer universe, based on games, which can be confusing if you’re new to it as I am. To give credit where it’s due, there’s a useful cast list preceding the actual story to let you know who’s who. Pictures and […]

Deadpool: Too Soon? by Joshua Corin and Todd Nauck   (graphic novel review)

Deadpool! He’s funny, yeah? The spandex wearing breaker of fourth walls might be able to slice someone in two whilst being virtually indestructible but it’s his razor-sharp sarcasm that sets him apart from the rest of the Marvel Universe. But let’s not forget there have been other purveyors of puns and destructive denizens of double […]
