Boys, Toys, Electric Irons, and TVs 19: Futures End #20, Futures End: Justice League #1, and Avengers #35

Comparing Futures End and “Time Runs Out” seems natural. It’s a bit difficult after 20 issues (and numerous one-shots) of the former and only one issue of the latter. You would think, under those circumstances, the future of Futures End would feel more fleshed out and compelling than the brief glimpse we get of Marvel […]

Year of the Artist, Day 261: Milo Manara, Part 5 – L’odyssée de Giuseppe Bergman

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Milo Manara, and the story is L’odissea di Bergman/L’odyssée de Giuseppe Bergman (Bergman’s Odyssey), which was published in 2004 (I can’t find where it originally appeared, but it was published in both France and Italy). These […]

Year of the Artist, Day 260: Milo Manara, Part 4 – Revoir les étoiles

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story.

These scans are from The Manara Library volume 5, which was published […]

Meta-Messages – Hulk With a Fin on His Head Revisited

In this feature I explore the context behind (using reader danjack’s term) “meta-messages.” A meta-message is where a comic book creator comments on/references the work of another comic book/comic book creator (or sometimes even themselves) in their comic. Each time around, I’ll give you the context behind one such “meta-message.” Here is an archive of […]

Committed: Last Gasp’s Revolutionary Logo Designs

While this might be obvious to everyone, I only just realized that Last Gasp don’t have a logo. Or rather they do… they have hundreds of logos, practically one for each book, letter, and business cards… This was such an insane concept  in amongst our uniform, mass-produced world that I had to take a moment […]

Review time! with Thanatos Diver #1

I usually don’t review books that don’t come out for two months, but I’ll tell you why I’m doing it under the cut, if you dare read on! I mentioned Thanatos Diver (from Th3rd World Studios) in my latest Previews run-down, because I enjoyed Nick Tapalansky’s and Alex Eckman-Lawn’s Awakening a few years ago and […]

Year of the Artist, Day 259: Milo Manara, Part 3 – Viaggio a Tulun

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Milo Manara, and the story is Viaggio a Tulun (Trip to Tulum), which was published in Corto Maltese magazine in 1989. These scans are from The Manara Library volume 3, which was published by Dark Horse […]

Lookin’ to Connect: Spider-Man Edition! Amazing Spider-Man #642-647, Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #11-12 and J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Connecting Covers!

This is the latest installment of a feature where I spotlight interconnecting covers. I will feature three selections each installment, with my current plan being to feature one diptych, one triptych and one tetraptych (or larger). Here is an archive of all of the covers listed so far. I am sure you have suggestions for […]

Year of the Artist, Day 258: Milo Manara, Part 2 – Les Nouvelles Aventures de Giuseppe Bergman

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Milo Manara, and the story is Les Nouvelles Aventures de Giuseppe Bergman (published in English as The African Adventures of Giuseppe Bergman, Books 1 and 2), which were published in À Suivre magazine in 1980/1981. These […]

Meta-Messages – “Hey, It’s the Hulk With a Fin on his Head!”

In this feature I explore the context behind (using reader danjack’s term) “meta-messages.” A meta-message is where a comic book creator comments on/references the work of another comic book/comic book creator (or sometimes even themselves) in their comic. Each time around, I’ll give you the context behind one such “meta-message.” Here is an archive of […]

You Decide – Who is Your Favorite Writer from Wolverine’s Ongoing Series?

As the death of Wolverine draws near, we thought it’d be interesting to learn who your favorite writer was among all of those who have had runs on Wolverine’s ongoing series (so you’re judging them here solely by how well they wrote Wolverine in his solo series – not in the X-Men). Read on for […]

Another Day in the Stacks– Local Edition

Well, internet-local, anyway. I’m not really a reviewer, certainly not in the sense that our other Greg or Kelly are. Nevertheless, I still get a fair number of emails and review PDFs from small-press indie folks asking me to talk about this or that project in this space. The mission statement on the blog in […]

Year of the Artist, Day 256: Stuart Immonen, Part 5 – Fear Itself #7

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Stuart Immonen, and the issue is Fear Itself #7, which was published by Marvel and is cover dated December 2011. Enjoy! Fear Itself is an odd event book in that the first issue was by far […]

Drawing Crazy Patterns – The Inmates All Escape From Arkham Asylum

In this feature, I spotlight five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Here is an archive of all the patterns we’ve spotlighted so far. This time around, based on a suggestion by Will B., we take a look at times that the […]

The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 103

It occurs to me that it seems like many comic book covers are homages. Which is fine with me. I have no problem with it. It just made me think, though, how long could I go before I hit a week where NO new comic book was released that had a cover that was an […]

Year of the Artist, Day 255: Stuart Immonen, Part 4 – Never As Bad As You Think and Moving Pictures

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story.
