Wolverine Wednesday #28

by Ian Wells

Dead Man Logan #10 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson |  Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit After a couple of issues of scene setting for Logan’s return to The Wastelands we get an action heavy issue. This is a smart move by Brisson as it gets the metaphorical adrenaline pumping in reading […]

eBuying Comics: Week 26

by Ian Wells

Nothing hits the nostalgia sweet spot better than a good old issue of Marvels ‘What If?’ line. These stand alone alternate takes on Marvel comics continuity are fondly remembered by readers who were around at their start. We are currently in the age of fan service where yesterdays readers are todays writers who are ultimately […]

We all know the classics. Frank Miller’s Daredevil run, Chris Claremont’s epic run on Uncanny X-Men with John Byrne and Dave Cockrum among others. Bill Sienkiewicz taking over New Mutants and making the comics world sit up. What I am going to do this week is look at some legendary creators and their first Marvel […]

Dead Man Logan #8 – #9 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit There were a number of Wolverine one shots over the summer I was really looking forward too. Each in their own way  were good and bad in places, but more on them later. The […]

eBuying Comics: Week 24

by Ian Wells

As comics are a visual media I am going to talk about collecting original artwork these week. When I first came up with this subject my initial idea was just the eBay hunting side of things. But collecting original comic artwork  goes much further, covering a variety of ways to acquire such items. What I […]

This week I want to talk buying comic supplies and storage online… Do you know your Mylar bags from your top loaders? Are you using the right backing boards? Do you know the difference between a long box and a short box? Actually that last one is rather easy. There are as any different brands […]

On the second weekend of June I attended the inaugral Milton Keynes Film and Comic Con. There is already a review of it up elsewhere on Nerdly, but now I am going to do another comic covention/eBay comparison, I hope it isn’t too hot on the heels of the previous one. In a nutshell it […]

Milton Keynes Film & Comic Con – Event Report

by Ian Wells

I heard about this convention back in January and had been counting the says with excitement since. It felt good to have a convention in my home town again since Collectormania, organised by Showmasters, initially stopped then relaunched in Birmingham. A comic convention a leisurely twenty minute walk from my house, yes please! Now I […]

Hulkverines #1-#3 Writer: Greg Pak | Artists: Ario Anindito & Guiu Vilanova | Colourists: Morry Hollowell & Andrew Crossley | Letters: Joe Caramagna The first issue is a dense but exciting read.

eBuying Comics: Week 19

by Ian Wells

It is fair to say like Star Wars in the 70′s and Game of Thrones today, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a pop culture phenomenon. Between 1984 when the comic debut and the mid 90′s the heroes in a half shell were everywhere. Comics, cartoons, movies, actions figures and pizza boxes. The humble beginnings to […]

eBuying Comics: Week 18

by Ian Wells

I think it is fair to say after eleven years and twenty two movies the MCU very much became its own entity. It was successful enough and brave enough to tell its own stories. While Avengers: Endgame is busy making millions I have seen lots of tweets reminding people not to forget the comic book […]

eBuying Comics: Week 17

by Ian Wells

I used to walk around comic conventions and question why would anyone consider buying the Marvel Essentials. It always struck me as a wasted investment buying collections of stories in black and white and on inferior paper. Fast forward a few years and I now love the idea of Marvel Essentials. There is nothing else […]

Wolverine Wednesday #24

by Ian Wells

Bit of a short one this month, as Wolverine related books aren’t at a premium. I’m still refusing to pay any attention to Wolverine Infinity Watch as a matter of principle. For the future I am planning on dissecting how Wolverine’s return has been handled in the pages of Uncanny X-Men. Currently I am absorbing […]

eBuying Comics: Week 16

by Ian Wells

It would seem there is only one place to start this week. Last week Detective Comics reached issue 1000! It is the second DC title to reach the significant landmark after Action Comics in 2017. We could argue all day about which character is more important/more popular but really we should be celebrating two icons […]

eBuying Comics: Week 15

by Ian Wells

For a lone wolf Batman has had a lot of sidekicks and assistance over the years. Affectionately referred to as the ‘Bat Family’ everyone has their favourite. Over the years the ‘Bat Family’ has become more diverse and I think it is fair to say each addition to the family in some way defines Batman […]

This past weekend I attended London Film and Comic Con Spring (LFCC) at the Kensington Olympia. This is the first time Showmasters have organised an LFCC at this time of year. Usually it is at the end of July, I attended it about three years ago and it was by far the best convention I […]
