Comic Book Six Degrees: ‘Mazing Man to Amazing Joy Buzzards

I name two comic book characters. You then have to connect the two using only shared appearances in comic books (official appearances in comics only – no cameos like Terry Austin sneaking Popeye into the background of a panel and no outside comic book appearances, like cartoons and the like). You have to do so […]

The Orange Won’t Peel | She smells like asphalt

Of the newer Image books, I’m mostly disappointed. Except for one. The one from the new guy. Zero revamps the ongoing series so that mechanics seep to the surface. Its single issue structure forces the plot into such a tight space, the reader has to engage the editing with the same consideration as the story beats. […]

Don’t Send Me No More Letters No – Hey Kids, There Ain’t No Santa Claus!

In this feature I spotlight responses that amuse me for whatever reason by Mort Weisinger to letters fans wrote in to the Superman family of titles back in the 1950s and 1960s. Here is an archive of past installments. In this latest installment, we look at Weisinger letting kids know that Santa Claus is a […]

Almost Hidden – The Doom That Came to Gotham

Even with this large amount of comic books that have been collected in trade paperbacks, there are still a number of great comic books that have never been reprinted in print (I’d say roughly 60% of them are DC Comics from the 1980s through the mid-1990s). So in this feature I spotlight different cool comic […]

Cross-Hatchings for July 2014

By the time you see this, Julie and I will be away on our first road trip of 2014; we are off to the north for a long weekend of bookscouting and goofing off. So in the meantime, here are various items that struck me as interesting enough to give a little space here, but […]

Comic Book Legends Revealed #480

Welcome to the four hundred and eightieth in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false.

Boys, Toys, Electric Irons, and TVs 10: Futures End #10 & 11

Futures End is a comic about the future, structured in a way that evokes the future, yet it seems unable to escape the past. Part of that is the nature of a story set five years in the future. A surprising amount of it will unavoidably be devoted to what happened between now and five […]

Cover Theme Game for 7/16

The cover theme game works like this: I’ll show you three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, a connection between all three characters, a locale, a trait all three creators share, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They […]

“I travel the world and the seven seas – everybody’s looking for something” Max Miller Dowdle was nice enough to send me a copy of his debut graphic novel, Shattered with Curve of Horn, which he published through his Artagem Graphic Library. It’s a very nice publication – it’s a keen hardcover, and the production […]
