The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 109

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 […]

The Case of the Missing Rabbit

Cross-Hatchings for October 2014

Bits and pieces. This-n-that. Wonder Woman, the Shadow, and two-fisted time travel. Feeling Smug: Back when we did the “I’ds of March” group thing, I said with the success of Batman ’66 that Wonder Woman ’77 was an obvious next step, and by golly, they’re doing it.

Foggy Ruins of Time – The George R.R. Martin X-Men Reference No One Ever Gets

This is the latest in a series giving you the cultural context behind certain comic book characters/behaviors.

Meta-Messages – The Great Marvel/DC “You’re Imitating Us” Debate of 1965-67

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 […]

Boys, Toys, Electric Irons, and TVs 23: Futures End #24 and New Avengers #25

What is a superhero? Both Futures End and New Avengers have spent two dozen issues dancing around this question, neither providing answers yet.
