There’s just too much comics news to keep up with. I’m still trying to unravel threads from the NYCC, and the next thing I learn is I missed out on news from the SDCC! Did you know that Oni Comics is going to collect Scott C.’s AMAZING webcomic Double Fine Action Comics, starting in April [...]
COMICS AND MOVIES The line between comic book continuity and Hollywood has never been thinner, and both fan communities are adding fuel to the fire! The success of The Avengers movie has cemented another five solid years of comic book films, and that is only on Marvel’s slate. DC is SURE to throw their hat [...]
Aspiring comic book creators, such as myself, can often feel small and insignificant next to the wide array of talents on display in this week’s new release comics. Regular titles such as Amazing Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and even Aquaman are top-notch reads from great writers and talents! Another example; Dark Horse Presents #12, will have [...]
by Chris Troy Happy President’s Day FP Faithful! Was that wish an excuse to use an overplayed Marvel-based Abe Lincoln image? Yes, possibly, but hey, it’s the thought that counts right? Hopefully those of you who had the day off did something rad with it, as I slept for about 10 hours and spending most [...]
By Chris Troy Happy Labor Day weekend FP Faithful (I assure you it was LD Weekend when I wrote this!). If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent your weekend drunk as hell in various locations (we’ll assuming everyone who reads this blog is of age) and catching up on various Netflix supplied programming and recent [...]
By Unkiedev Logic states that any article regarding Free Comic Book Day should be written in order to glorify and promote. As the day in question is the first Saturday of May, one MIGHT logically write about it NEXT week, as it’s closer to the actual date so as to inspire participation…but this fails to [...]
Sociologists would have you believe that the only reason we turn to comic books is for wish fulfillment…but would you be surprised to find out they can be right?! For example: Kevin Nowlan draws great comic books, Mike Mignola writes good comic books. I wish these two guys could get together and make a comic [...]
By Unkiedev Marvel tells us that Ultimate X #4 will ship this week. Sure it will. I’ve only plugged it three times, and each solicitation fails to deliver. If the Gods of Comic Books indeed intend to smile on us this week I can recommend few books more than Ultimate X #4. Don’t know the [...]
By Unkiedev Boom-shanka! I decided the cave I lived in needed a little refurbishing so I stole me a shovel and got to diggin’. Now I live in a swanky duplex cave with a top floor, a bottom floor and a set of stairs in between…well, by stairs I mean a tree trunk with rocks [...]
By Unkiedev Batman:Odyssey #5 is as classic as classic gets, with fan favorite Neal Adams returning to the iconic character that made him en ever popular artist. Amazing Spider-Man #649 has got some great talents behind it, too. Deadpool is going to fight Howard the Duck’s “break-out Super-Villain,” the amazing Doctor Bong, in Deadpool #29. [...]
Cripes Dangit! I’ve been swept out to sea by a freakin’ flash flood and have NO comic books to read this week. While you’re reading DC’s Action Comics #893 this week, featuring a drag-down, messed up punch fest between Gorilla Grodd and Lex Luther I’ll be starving and suffering from Hypothermia. While you’re enjoying the [...]
I love cartoonist Corey Lewis, a.k.a. “the Reyy” even though he comes off as an arrogant, preening twerp. Check out his insufferably smug blog reyy.com and see what I mean. So much talent in such a scruffy mirror junkie.
The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art here in NYC is running an exhibition of the original art for the entire issue of Amazing Spider-Man #50, as pencilled by John Romita Jr. with inks by Scott Hanna, and to kick this puppy into gear they’re hosting an evening with Spidey editors past and present. In [...]
“Spoilers” are like being buried up to your neck in sand, and having honey poured on your face to attract passing ants. I mean, most people don’t want it, but for a few folks “it’s their thing” and they’re welcome to it… just keep it off my web browser!
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian is writing a new “Lobo” series with Sam Kieth. This is today’s “get me this book, right now” moment. Brian Bendis is getting on the Amazing Spider-Man crew with number 601. I think Bendis is probably the best Spider-Man writer today and considering what has happened with the Ultimate line [...]
