31.Oct.2011 Three New York City classics in one comic!
The esteemed Sean T. Collins wrote a Spider-Man story for Spider-Man: Marvel Adventures #19. I’m a big fan of Sean’s and a big fan of the Friendly Neighborhood Wall-crawler, but kicking the story off with pizza… well, that was the extra cheese on this metaphorical pie!
07.Jun.2011 Forever as ewoks
The Troll King by Kolbeinn Karlsson is a remarkably bizarre comic. It’s mesmerizing, too. If you’re a fan of off-kilter… well, anything… you’ll love it! Plus, it has references to ewoks! Good stuff.
01.Mar.2011 Great Comic Quotes: Silver Surfer #37
While reading The Silver Surfer: Rebirth of Thanos by Jim Starlin and Ron Lim, I stumbled across these two dialogue gems.
13.Nov.2010 House of Mystery: A comic I enjoy
Matthew Sturges’ wild ride of a comic—House of Mystery—began with the relatively simple but beautifully open-ended setup of assorted oddballs telling stories in a strange old house. Since, it’s morphed into a sprawling fantasy epic that would take pages of praise and analysis to fully explain it’s enthralling nature. There’s probably someone else out there [...]
22.Oct.2010 Super Monkey
Some comics are good, some are bad and some are just awesome and fun all the time. If you’re a fan of fun, Tiny Titans is always a good bet! I recently read issue #31 and this sequence cracked me up. Enjoy!
27.Aug.2010 Just say “Hm” to facehuggers!
Much like the most excellent issues of Star Wars Tales I recently came across, my office area move and the “free table” in the Dark Horse break room have been great resources for finding interesting older comics from my employer. So, as I read through these gems—issues of Dark Horse Presents, Star Wars comics and [...]
28.Jun.2010 Wolverine: What it is that he does best.
I recently reread “Incredible Hulk” #181 by Len Wein and Herb Trimpe, an issue notable as the first appearance of Wolverine (Canada’s first superhero!). Like many older comics, “Incredible Hulk” #181 features some kooky moments intermixed with the panels of this historically significant issue. I’m not sure whether my memory has faded or I just [...]
19.Mar.2010 Mankind’s greatest ally
Magnus, robot fighter from the year 4000 A.D., drops some knowledge on us once again.
15.Mar.2010 Mankind’s greatest resource
As the inevitable Robot Revolution draws ever closer, the time when humanity shall fight tooth and nail against the gears and pistons of beings created by our own arrogance begins to look more like reality than fiction. In these startling moments of clarity, it’s helpful to remember a message from the future delivered by route [...]
04.Mar.2010 Monkeying around with Hellboy
Possibly the greatest three panel sequence in the history of comics…
