Unkiedev’s Amazing Stuff #1

Unkiedev’s Amazing Stuff

Why haven’t I thought of this before? You guys must be super bored of reading my crumble-down, old timey column of words, thoughts, and comic book related highlights. THAT is why the Flash went to an alternative universe and got a glimpse at an ALL NEW, ALL DIFFERENT Unkiedev. A glimpse so startling that we have REBOOTED the entire Unkiedev’s Amazing Stuff universe!

No longer do I live in a smelly cave and constantly get assailed by ghouls, mummies, and woodland creatures! NOW I’m a sexy alien cat burglar who wears purple lingerie and totally makes-out with Batman! That is, when I’m not living in a smelly cave, getting goofed on by mummies and bears and crap.

THREE’S A CROWD

In fact there’s a bear in my cave now. He’s going on and on about how excited he is about Action Comics #3 and Detective Comics #3. I can see his point…Grant Morrison on Superman is never a book to skip, plus Batman is going to fight a villain who makes dolls out of his victim’s skin. Fun for all ages!

Still, I’m more interested in a number 2 book this week.

SUPERNATURAL #2, Brian Wood (W), Grant Bond (A), DC Comics

NOT part of the 52 that I’m aware of, though DC is pretty creative with its retcons. Supernatural is the DC published comic book based on the TV show of the same name. This is the third miniseries written about the show, all of which are sanctioned by the show’s creators and considered in-continuity stories.

Supernatural is good ole’ fun, the tale of roving monster hunters hanging out in bars, getting into fights with each other and the forces of evil. In this new miniseries, younger brother Sam is off in Scotland entangled in two sticky wickets, these being Monsters and Women.

S’good, fun stuff. Forbidden Planet might just have a few issues of #1 kicking around if you ask nicely. Or they might not. What do I know, I live in a cave! Continue reading

Concrete is back baby!

Fact: Paul Chadwick’s Concrete is one of my favorite comics.

Fiction: Buying Dark Horse Presents #1 (which features an all new COLOR Concrete story) will make you as cool as me.

O.K. so it may not make you as cool as me, but it is packed from cover to cover with amazing comicy stuff by Richard Corben, Frank Miller, Harlan Ellison, Howard Chaykin, Neal Adams, and more.

Oh Lordy! Just buy it already…

New Comics Worth the Money

Somebody killed all the good, fun, bright and new ideas in comic books. Is there anyone to save us?

Holy Crap! A New Hellboy book?!

Richard Corben, 70’s Heavy Metal Magazine favorite and erstwhile Hellboy artist is back in the artistic saddle with big daddy Mike Mignola whipping him onward via the written word on a brand new Hellboy double feature appropriately called Hellboy Double Feature of Evil! A truly sensational comic book ready to explode your mind! As of right now we are all at the bottom of a hill of ignorance, and this ten-ton comic book is about to avalanche down on our heads with deadly enlightenment of its weighty worth.

THIS to me is what makes comic books great! Amazing talents taking the time to get it right, crafting stories of worth and skill. It is fine by me that there will be four good Hellboy books this year, as they were all f’ing good! Continue reading
