I Love Ya But You’re Strange – That Time the Riddler Tricked Batman Into Slicing a Baby’s Throat

Every installment of I Love Ya But You’re Strange I spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories. Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have a suggestion for a future installment! Today, based on a suggestion from reader Jim S. (who saw […]

Our Lives Together – Supergirl Also Overhears the DC Universe

In this feature, I will spotlight some of the more interesting examples of shared comic book universes. You know, crossovers that aren’t exactly crossovers. The last time I did this feature, I spotlighted a similar instance featuring Superman, where Superman’s hearing is increased to the point where he hears the rest of the DC Universe, […]

Cover Theme Game for 3/11

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 […]

Committed: Recent Comic Book Designs

Regular readers might have noticed I haven’t written a column in a few weeks. I’ve had issues with a long term illness which is causing me more pain than usual and while I am trying a new treatment, it hasn’t yet begun to help. This means that I’m probably not going to be able to return […]

The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 128

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 […]

Drawing Crazy Patterns – Jason Todd’s Memorial in the Batcave Getting Smashed

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 from reader Nick P., we take a look at times when […]

Comic Book Six Degrees: Miracleman to Cerebus

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 […]

Review time! with Strange Detective Mysteries

“Gangster lean, feelin’ so mean, I try to take more than their share / ‘Cause all they saw was ruling it all, the scent of blood was in the air” Strange Detective Mysteries was apparently published digitally first, but the collected edition came out in January, and as I am a print-version sucker, I picked […]

Review time! with Six-Gun Gorilla: Long Days of Vengeance

It’s always fun to get comics in the mail! You might recall Six-Gun Gorilla, the Boom! series, the trade paperback of which came out in 2014. The character of Six-Gun Gorilla, though, was first published in 1939 in Wizard (here’s a bit about it). The character is in the public domain, so the Boom! series […]

Things That Turned Out Bad – That Time Carol Danvers Gave Birth to Her Own Rapist

In this column, I will spotlight plotlines by writers that probably weren’t a good idea at the time and have only become more problematic in retrospect. I’ll try to stick with stuff that’s more ill-conceived than flat-out offensive (like racist stereotypes of characters during the 1940s). The story we’re looking at this time is one […]

The Week of the Miracle

I wasn’t going to write about this. I really wasn’t. It seemed crass. But then Brian wrote about it so I thought I’d at least explain what was going on. Apart from that, I’ve done a number of columns documenting when comics fans behaved badly, so I feel obligated to make sure you people hear […]

Went to Tell Everybody – Henshin

In this feature, I ask comic creators that I like a lot to recommend a great comic that they’d like to see spotlighted. They pick the comic and then I write a review of the comic (of course, this runs the risk of them picking a comic that I don’t like, but there’s so many […]

Drawing Crazy Patterns – CLAREMONTISM: “I Got Better”

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 is a special CLAREMONTISM edition of Drawing Crazy Patterns, honoring one of the bits that Chris Claremont […]

What I bought – 4 March 2015

I do not remember where I read that there are two kinds of poets: the good poets, who at a certain point destroy their bad poems and go off to run guns in Africa, and the bad poets, who publish theirs and keep writing more until they die. (Umberto Eco, from The Mysterious Flame of […]

Thoughts on the New Supergirl Costume

So, Warner Brothers TV has released the first images of Melissa Benoist as Supergirl and, well, they’re quite cool looking, really. Benoist really looks the part! The only issue I really have is the lack of yellow in the S but eh, that’s a minor point. Read on for a closer look at the S. […]

Let’s Give the Hatchers a Hand

As you might very well know if you have been following Greg Hatcher’s columns the last few months, he and his wife Julie have been going through some tough times as of late. He had a good line in his latest column about a friend sympathizing with him over the death of Leonard Nimoy: My […]
