3 Days in the (Willamette) Valley

Or; how to piss your wife off simply by going away! On 20-21 September, I visited the Rose City Comic Con.

Boys, Toys, Electric Irons, and TVs 22: Futures End #23 and Avengers #36

In stories that take place in the future, the reader is always playing catch-up to some degree or another. It’s a way to mimic the sensation of picking up an issue of a series in the middle of its run, albeit designed to be new reader friendly at the same time. How much you’re told […]

The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 106
