The best comedians are often self-loathing, depressed freakazoids. Eric Powel, writer and artist on The Goon must HATE himself more than a Slayer fan who has run out of razor blades, because that cat is putting out the funniest comic book on the stands today. This week sees TWO Goon books, the new issue of [...]
Time for some incredible comics! I thought last week had some good books, but it is like the amazing titles from last week were bombarded by Gamma Radiation and then given an atomic wedgie! These are some hulked out, sensational She-Titles, here! DC is bringing it’s a-Game with #17’s for Action Comics (Grant Morrison’s last [...]
The debut issue of Superior Spider-Man makes it clear that Peter Parker Spider-Man is still swinging around in the mind of his body’s usurper, Dr. Otto Octavious.

Third column. I am coming out of my sophomoric slump with an all star one this week. The only problem is that the comic industry basically takes the last week of December off meaning that there are less than 10 mainstream comics releasing. I’m not going to resort to recommending comics that I don’t believe [...]
So here we are at my second column of TRY SOMETHING NEW! already. Wasn’t too pleased with how the the first one came out, 20/20 hindsight and all, but we press on. New comics wait for no man or woman and so this column where I berate you for not buying enough new comics waits [...]

But now here I am with my first installment of TRY SOMETHING NEW! What changed? Hard to say. I didn’t have anything [...]

With Valentine’s Day safely behind Us where it can no longer do any harm I think it might be appropriate to ask Marvel “Where’s the love?” A few years back The House [...]
