How Stan Cross Saw The Critics
He was, and still is, one of the best black and white artists Australia has ever seen.  Even today, decades after his passing, people hold his work up as being the standard to aspire to, both in execution and sheer artistic ability.  Stan Cross was totally ...

Before The Comic Code Authority Came The Horwitz Code Of Publishing Ethics
Everyone knows, and has seen, the Comics Code Authority
which was established in the USA back in September 1954 and its workings.  Entire books have been devoted to its
formation and history and how it fits into the comic book industry as a
whole.  In a nut...

Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi Vintage Ads
This post speaks for itself really.  A clutch of vintage ads released in Australia when Return Of The Jedi came out, circa 1983-1984.  They just don't make movies, or advertisements, like this anymore sadly enough.  Still, we must be thankful that people cl...

About ten years ago, give or take a few months, I spoke to John Romita (senior, for those keeping score) about a number of topics.  One of the topics we chatted about was when Marvel  Comics seriously thought about buying out DC Comics in the early 1980s.  ...

Leonard Lawson - Information Wanted
One of my major projects for 2014 is none other than Leonard 'Lennie' Lawson.  I've gathered a lot of research material already and have begun work, but, as always, I want the full picture.  I want as much as can be found.  However I've hit a dead end. As s...

'Vumps' Australia's First Ever Comic Book?
Is
Vumps the first comic book issued in Australia?
