Alien: Covenant: The Official Collector’s Edition (magazine review).

From the start, I am reading ‘Alien: Covenant: The Official Collector’s Edition’ prior to its disk release let alone seeing the film. As that won’t be until the autumn at the earliest, I’m assuming the regular selective amnesia will take effect for me not to dwell on what I already know. There are snippets of […]

Back Issue # 97 July 2017   (magazine review)

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is devoted to bird people or rather super-heroes with name associations to them more than powers similar to birds. Editor Mike Eury gives a list of characters that have already been covered in earlier issues and this issue is predominately DC characters. Having said that, both lists seem to omit […]

Illustrators #18 (magazine review).

My usual page flick of the latest issue of ‘Illustrators’ quickly revealed that it this isn’t a normal edition. If anything, it’s darn right cartoony. Hardly surprising when the opener is ‘Mad’ caricature artist Mort Drucker. Over the years, you’ve probably seen his art but not put a name to his drew them. Drucker was […]

Draw! # 33 Spring 2017  (magazine review)

It shouldn’t come as a surprise from ‘Draw!’s cover that the first 40 pages are devoted to an interview with Bill Sienkiewicz and editor Mike Manley which is mostly shop talk about techniques and equipment. On the latter, it’s interesting to discover that’s been a drop in quality standards for pens and paper in America. […]

Alter Ego # 146 May 2017 (magazine review).

The cream at the top of the latest ‘Alter Ego’ magazine has to be the interview with the extremely prolific comicbook writer, Doug Moench. If you’ve ever read Marvel’s ‘Master Of Kung Fu’ you can tell how his various artists rose to his writing. Richard J. Arndt’s interview covers Moench’s career through to his time […]

Perihelion SF # 54 – April 2017 (emag review).

‘Perihelion SF’ is an on-line magazine, free to read, that publishes Science Fiction only, so no fantasy or horror here. It is inclined to be humorous but more serious subjects also feature. The fiction is listed in order of my preference, which may not be yours. ‘Places We Call Home’ by Amy Sisson is narrated […]
