Comic Book Creator # 14 Winter 2017 (magazine review).

Although the latest edition of ‘Comic Book Creator’ is mainly devoted to artist Kelley Jones, it starts with Singapore artist Sonny Liew, who describes his rise to fame a slow climb rather than a quick jump. Although I haven’t come across his work before, Liew’s work is stylised with traces of sources from all over […]

Back Issue # 94 February 2017   (magazine review)

If ever there is a cover that will guarantee sales, then put one illustrated by Neal Adams on it. The opening interview in this issue of ‘Back Issue’ examines his creation of Ms. Mystic and several other characters who essentially were designed as part of a limited edition portfolio before becoming comicbook series. I have […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2016, Volume 131 # 727   (magazine review)

I’ve got a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ recently. This issue, however, has been well worth the wait. It is ‘MoF&SF’s first Special Author issue in a decade and their sixteenth in total and is dedicated to David Gerrold, the man who wrote Star Trek’s ‘The Trouble […]

Top of the click list on the left side of the page is ‘A Breath Of Aphrodite’ by Rebecca Birch. Due to staffing shortages, Botany-tech Sarah Munroe is taken out of her cosy lab and thrust […]

Alter Ego # 144 January 2017  (magazine review)

A new ‘Alter Ego’ for the new year. Yah! Editor Roy Thomas announces that the magazine is going bimonthly because he’s doing too much and that list is staggering, so not surprised so less of an ‘Oh!’. The good news is the next issue will be up to 100 pages, so you’re only going to […]

Comic Book Creator #13 Fall 2016 (magazine review).

The dual cover of Comic Book Creator # 13 shows what is the meat of this issue, namely interviews with artists Ramona Fradon and Michael W. Kaluta, which tends to make light of the other material contained. Not being American, I’m not really that familiar with ‘The Wacky Pack’ stickers and an excerpt from the […]

Back Issue # 93 December 2016   (magazine review)

There are a lot of captains in comicbooks. One has to wonder why, outside of Nick Fury, that few come with a higher rank starring in their own comicbook. Certainly, none of them ever rose to a higher rank. The first is the original Captain Marvel and his tenure at DC Comics. Something I didn’t […]

Illustrators # 16 (magazine review).

Although I could probably think of a couple better choices of covers from the contents for Illustrators # 16, I can’t recall seeing this montage of Superman illustrations by Neal Adams before. According to the Peter Stone written text inside, Adams has them pinned on a wall in his studio when interviewed and, although no […]

The Jack Kirby Collection Sixty-Nine (magazine review).

‘The Jack Kirby Collector Sixty-Nine’ is the usual mix with a few interesting articles, a few minor pieces about Kirby trivia, many accolades for Jack and lots of lovely pictures. In ‘Prospeak’, Steve Sherman, Mike Royer, Joe Sinnott and Lisa Kirby discuss Kirby. ‘Jack F.A.Q.’s’ is the conversation of a Comic-Con tribute panel on which […]

Uncanny Magazine #13 (emag review).

‘Uncanny’ is a magazine of fantasy and Science Fiction that also features author interviews and non-fiction essays. Fiction first then. ‘Don’t You Worry, You Aliens’ by Paul Cornell has no aliens, no plot, no conflict and no point. It’s a description of a man in a town by himself because everyone else has left. We […]
