Mindy Newell: Yiddishkeit

Marc Alan Fishman: 2014—A Comic Odyssey

Each year Unshaven Comics has been around, we’ve declared a goal to meet. At first, the goal was simple: make a comic, and sell it at “the con”. Done. The following year? “Sell more books than we did last year.” Checkity-Check. To be fair, this has remained a sub-goal every year thereafter. Show More Summary

THE LAW IS A ASS #302: A Civil War Never Is

Martha Thomases: Comic books make me a better person

I love comic books.  I have since I was five years old.  I even love comic books I don’t like. I love the way the whole of words and pictures is bigger (and better) than the parts.  I love the way that great storytellers can take a blank...Show More Summary

Dennis O’Neil: How Long Can You Go Without Faking It?

Story ideas are pretty malleable. I once presided over/rode herd on/sweated out an 1,100+ page continuity that began as a plot for two 15-pagers.  Hemingway is credited with writing a story in only six words.  (Go on. Google it.  I’ll...Show More Summary

(For reasons that will become obvious, this, my first column in about a month, is to be run both on and on Go nuts; read it twice and offer contradictory comments!) I have a friend named Larry Schlam, a noted child’s rights advocate and a former Bronx street-corner singer. Show More Summary

Michael Davis: Who’s Sorry Now?

It’s been a while since I’ve taken someone to task with a good old fashion rant, so… Last week I missed my ComicMix deadline. Not that anyone noticed. Usually when I missed a deadline it’s because of illness or stupidity. Not that anyone...Show More Summary

Box Office Democracy: “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”

I was a big fan of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show as a child and while I enjoyed almost all of the segments “Peabody’s Improbable History” was a particular favorite.  I don’t know what it is but time travel and know-it-alls have always...Show More Summary

Box Office Democracy: “300: Rise of an Empire”

300: Rise of an Empire is a movie that made me doubt my own sanity.  I watched that movie and wondered if I had completely imagined the ending of the original movie and, for that matter, the graphic novel it was based on.  I distinctly...Show More Summary
