The What Of What Now?

Let’s be clear here. This is not an original Jim Steranko painting. It’s one of those 11×17 reproduction deals, you know, the ones that are usually reprints of old movie posters that you can buy in Newbury Comics (or your local equivalent) in those thick plastic sleeves? Yeah, like that. And it’s not a repro […]

Cosplay is a Slippery Slope

How far a tumble is it from putting these dog-tags around your neck is it to wearing cat ears and wielding a paper-mache broadsword? Probably not as far as you think. Be responsible. If you’re going to wear these, wear them as the finishing touch on a Wolverine Halloween costume. Don’t leave them on for […]

Happy Memorial Day.

Don’t forget about the troops while you’re barbecuing your ass off, ok?

Ramrod on Campus!

Ah, for a simpler time, when saying there was a Ramrod on campus didn’t mean an s&m themed gay bar had opened up at your college, but that an ex-construction worker turned leather clad super villain was there trying to ram his shiny head into whatever he could…

The Day The Rottens Won!

I know the cover claims that “The Day The Rottens Won” is a story that no one demanded, but fact is? Speaking as a kid who grew up on hour long stretches of Hanna Barbara cartoons on Sundays? I’m intrigued. I would sincerely like to read this story and find out just what dastardly plan […]

RCBF!

Interesting RCBF today, as I’ve never heard of the first comic that came up this week… Anyone heard of that first one? Totally new to me. The only Second City’s I know are the comedy tv show and the Saints. And before any one poo poo’s that Spidey issue as looking boring, it’s got Silvermane, […]

Doh!

Some people want Ebay to be safe. They want it to come with assurances. Not me. I like Ebay to be somewhere between Antiques Road Show and a port town full of Somali pirates. This auction is an example of what I like best. Supposedly a storyboard for The Simpsons (when still on The Tracy […]

Duh na na na, Duh na na na, FOREGROUND!

Love all 4 of these Neal Adams Batman covers, even if they’re are variations on the same “giant villain in the back ground, Batman and Robin cowering in the foreground” template… That Joker cover is an all time great, but dude. THE SHADOW. In a Batbook. That’s AWESOME. It’s such a shame the whole Shadow […]

Ring A Ding Ding!

I am a big fan of Eric Powell’s the Goon. I also do entries over on our sister site Vinyl Noize. And it was in the other auctions of a seller whose auction I was writing a post about that I found this signed Eric Powell sketchbook from the 2003 Chicago Comic Con, which promises […]

The Adventure Continues?

My hunt for Lee Weeks odds and ends on Ebay yielded some strange fruit. I knew dude had been around for a long minute, but didn’t know he played a small part in the magic of Remo Williams. For one magic moment in the 80s, Destroyer fever gripped the US and the long-running series of […]
