Comic Book Creator # 15 Summer 2017 (magazine review)
by UncleGeoff on August 22, 2017 at 12:08 pm
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 […] Related posts:Comic Book Creator # 12 Spring 2016 (magazine review). Comic Book Creator # 14 Winter 2017 (magazine review). Comic Book Creator #13 Fall 2016 (magazine review). […]
Reel Vulnerability by Sarah Hagelin (book review)
by UncleGeoff on August 22, 2017 at 10:25 am
Now here’s an odd scenario. In her book, ‘Reel Vulnerability’, Sarah Hagelin’s opening examples are going to be pretty difficult to locate at a cheap price. I looked up the Barbara Stanwyck 1950 film ‘The Furies’ which is still a little pricy either side of the pond after a 2008 DVD release, let alone Marlon […] Related posts:Invulnerability Vulnerability : an article by: GF Willmetts Creating Graphic Novels by Sarah Beach (book review).

The Punisher (Netflix trailer).

Here’s the first trailer for The Punisher TV series from Netflix. Hey, peeps, still waiting for some time to watch the new Defenders TV series. That’s the problem with Netflix and Prime … there’s now more half-decent TV than I actually have healthy down-time to watch. Related posts:The Defenders (first TV series on Netflix).

Killing Is My Business by Adam Christopher (book review)
by Gareth D Jones on August 18, 2017 at 7:59 pm
It was a quiet afternoon in my office when the parcel landed on my desk with a thud. Brown cardboard, clear sticky tape and address handwritten in black ink. I knew exactly what it was and where it came from. A review copy of ‘Killing Is My Business’ by Adam Christopher. The day had suddenly […] Related posts:Made To Kill by Adam Christopher (book review). The Machine Awakes by Adam Christopher (book review). The Burning Dark by Adam Christopher (book review). […]

Thor Ragnarok trailer with extra shouty Japanese phrases.
by ColonelFrog on August 17, 2017 at 11:23 am
Here’s the new international Thor Ragnarok trailer with extra shouty Japanese phrases. There’s very few movie trailers, in my humble opinion, that don’t benefit from random Japanese marketing phrases shouted over an English soundtrack. Sore wa hijō ni shinjitsudesu!!! Oh, and it also has Doctor Strange. Cumber-who? Related posts:Thor Ragnarok movie trailer. Thor Ragnarok trailer (Thor vs Hulk). Mad Max: Fury Road trailer . . . Japanese style. […]
Kirby: King Of Comics Paperback – Special Edition by Mark Evanier (book review)
by EamonnMurphy on August 16, 2017 at 9:00 pm
Jack Kirby was born in 1917 and grew up in the slums of New York. He was short and had to fight. He was mad for movies and the comicstrips in newspapers and drew all the time. His first proper job was at the Max Fleischer Animation Studios in 1935 and he hated the boring, […] Related posts:The Art Of The Simon And Kirby Studio by Mark Evanier, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby (book review).

Freedom Of The Mask by Robert McCammon (book review)
by NealeMonks on August 16, 2017 at 8:02 pm
Robert McCammon has been turning out horror-slash-dark fantasy novels since the late 1970s, mostly standalone works but, in recent years, with the accent on the continuing use of certain characters within their own discrete worlds. Such is the case with ‘Freedom Of The Mask’, the sixth book to feature Matthew Corbett, a 17th century sleuth […] Related posts:I Travel By Night by Robert McCammon (book review).
