Back From the Bloc

Hey ya’ll, I’m back from a short trip to Eastern Europe. They’ve got beautiful women and a friendly attitude over there, but that’s rarely what’s represented in comic books. Instead, we’ve got Hitler, Hitler, and more Hitler. Normally, I’d decry the bias there and implore our comic creators to illustrate the variety of lifestyle found […]

San Diego Comic Con Inspires Gangsterism

So it begins. The exclusives at SDCC are appearing on Ebay now. Expect a bunch of auctions that display a subtle yet unmistakable cynicism by featuring items that were given away that morning. Promotional items seen as a write-off by the companies handing them out will be seen as nuggets of Ebay gold by enterprising […]

Jim Starlin Knows Monsters

I like to provide proper auctions rather than Buy It Now listings, but this one includes a Make Offer option so we’ll say it’s all good. It’s a Jim Starlin print that features a number of deformed monsters in a pig-pile. Starlin is obviously one of the greatest of all time, but the appreciation for […]

Mysteriously Low Priced Auction Of the Day: I’ve Got A Swampy Feeling

While I was looking at George Perez Superman pages going for 3k, I tripped over this hidden gem. Why is it so cheap? The art is by Mike Hoffman and he signed the page. Not a superstar, but a capable artist working on a popular character WHO APPEARS IN EVERY PANEL OF THIS PAGE. So […]

Supernatural Revenge With A Lite Industrial Soundtrack

Everyone remembers The Crow, right? Well, if you’re 11-years-old and missed out on this beautiful pop-culture phenomenon, here’s your primer: It’s pure cutter stuff. The Crow tells the story of a man spared from death in order to revenge his murdered girlfriend. It was a personal story for the author, James O’Barr, who had lost […]

LeBron James Could Take the Hulk In A Fair Fight

So LeBron won. He made himself a pro-wrestling heel and somehow still won. The badguy beat the underdog. There is no Santa. Here’s a throwback to pre-championship LeBron, the one we all liked, and his Bloodsport-meets-Days-Of-Thunder adventures in the DC book, KING JAMES. I’ll confess that I’ve never read it, but how could it be […]

Save the Whales: Less Than An Hour On Orka

Remember how much you love Orka, the dude with no personality that fights Namor for reasons you can never really manage to remember? Sure you do. He’s awesome. Apparently, he’s swapped sides and is now a good dude. Makes sense. How many times can you align yourself with other badguys who get their asses handed […]

Wack Cover Week Rages On: When Breasts Are Lame

I’m not going to pretend to understand the publishing history of Glory. I also can’t comment on the character, as lame as she may look, because I don’t know a thing about her. But these covers I can talk about. These are horrible. I mean, the idea of a lingerie issue already pushes comics back […]

Wack Cover Week: Day 1. Who Jumps Like This?

I love Mike Zeck. I also love the treatment the title got. “Trade dressing” I think they call it. But what’s going on with this pose? I mean, Zeck does it better than 90% could, but there’s no saving this nonsense. Is he leaping at us? Jumping up to something? Is he falling? I can’t […]
