Cover Theme Game for 10/1

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: Hello Kitty Embraces Her Bad Self

According to the New York Times, “studies suggest that cute images stimulate the same pleasure centers of the brain aroused by sex, a good meal or psychoactive drugs like cocaine.” With that in mind, I’m going to suggest that you take a look at some of the fantastically cute stories in the 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty […]

The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 105

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 […]

Comic Book Six Degrees: Crossfire to Firearm

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 […]

Flippin’ through Previews – October 2014

Wait, Damian might not be dead? The hell you say!!! All the answers can be found in Previews #313 … well, probably not, but it’s nice to think so! Dark Horse: Total solicits are here. Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. #1 shows up on page 34. It’s set in the past, so I assume it doesn’t […]

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Tim Vigil, and the issue is Faust: Love of the Damned #1, which was published by Northstar and is cover dated 1989 (although my copy is the reprint from Rebel Studios, which came out in 1991, […]

She Has No Head! – The October Five

The five comic things I’m most excited about for October? Glad you asked!   #1. Number with a bullet is GOTHAM ACADEMY. I’ve read it, it comes out this week (10/1) and it is AWESOME. That’s right, written by Becky Cloonan and Brendan Fletcher and with some absolutely incredible art by Karl Kerschl (colors by […]

I Saw It Advertised One Day – Neal Adams Wants Kids to Read Comics…Well, His Comics, At Least

This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at advertisements in comic books over the decades that amused me for whatever reason. In each installment, we’ll take a look at three ads! Here is an archive of all installments of this feature. Today we look at Neal Adams […]

Flashback Friday

One thing leads to the next, I guess. So I did this podcast that led to a further reminiscence that led to my old friend Joe sending me this amazing package of stuff that he’s kept for over thirty years. It’s too cool not to share, but you need some background first. I’ve said before […]

Boys, Toys, Electric Irons, and TVs 20: Futures End #21, Futures End: Superman #1, Futures End: Booster Gold #1, Futures End: Aquaman and the Others #1, and New Avengers #24

I’ve had a lot of less-than-positive things to say about Futures End and DC’s theme month supposedly tied to it lately. The month was a flop, from my perspective, rarely enhancing the weekly series, often contradicting it, and, most likely, offering little for most regular readers of titles aside from a disruption (hell, I buy […]

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