Comic Book Creator #15 Summer 2017 (magazine review).

I think the biggest shock in reading the latest edition of ‘Comic Book Creator was in Jon Cooke’s editorial that Bernie Wrightson died in March and Rich Buckler in May. Both solid comicbook artists in different ways and likely to be both missed by us older fans. Cooke has promised more in later issues. For […]

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.

Much of this should be familiar to any of you with an interest in comicbooks. There is also some […]

Comic Book Creator # 6 Presents Swampmen (magazine review).

I often wondered about the American love of swamps. Certainly, they have more of them than we have, so it’s pretty much a climate thing. When you include how dark and murky they are, it’s a natural fodder to think big beasties, other than alligators could stalk out of it or bond with humans and […]

Comic Book Creator # 1 Spring 2013 (magazine review).

‘Comic Book Creator’ is the replacement title for ‘Comic Book Artist’, that lasted two years. Although not stated, the implication within this edition that the comicbook artist, especially those who use the Marvel method, contribute greatly to the storytelling so calling it ‘creator’ covers those who can do both and covers some aspect of writing […]
