I’m Going In

I’m going to do it. I’m going to read Alan Moore’s Lost Girls. There was some small moral panic when this thing came out because *supposedly* it features depictions of sex acts with younger looking characters. Or maybe just nude.

I Read It For the Articles

The following post is labeled NSFW or NWS or whatever acronym denotes the fact that the material being discussed is for adults and apparently adults are not allowed in the workplace. I’m trying to bone up on my comix knowledge. My understanding of COMICS is pretty high, but my exposure to underground COMIX is not […]

Variant Covers Are ALMOST Always Pointless

So I think all thinking adults can agree variant covers are the province of geeks and (uncool) mutants, right? It’s a transparent and, ultimately, sad effort to squeeze dollars from the same buyers instead of creating new ones. It’s insular and creepy and plays to the worst aspects of fanboy nature.

Plate Tectonics

What we’re looking at here is a commemorative Green Lantern/Green Arrow plate. This collectable celebrates the groundbreaking 70s series featuring these two characters fighting social ills. It’s exactly what it looks like. A plate. The art is by Alex Ross (as is the case with seemingly all “collectables”) and the trim is “gold”. Not microwave-safe […]

Pocket Nullifier

For less than the cost of a breakfast sandwich you can wield ultimate power. Here’s three cards, one purely collectable the other two part of a collectable card game, that will give you a cosmic perspective on life and death. Or really, existence and nonexistence.

Fred For Any Budget

Been a minute since we’ve done a Fred Hembeck post here on Comic Noize. I can’t pretend this dude has made an impact on my life or even that he’s a particularly impressive creative voice. But he is persistent. Dude has been working in comics for longer than half of comic readers have been alive. […]
