Hitler Week Concludes!

I never read the original Unknown Soldier, so I have to confess I have no idea what’s happening here. Is that Hitler pinning a medal on a Confederate soldier? Hitler loves time travel. Would this make any more sense if I read Unknown Soldier or would I still think this is the strangest Hitler appearance of the week?

This production art is awesome. Joe Kubert illustration. Four-piece production art. Another badly done swastika.

Hitler Week Rolls On!

More Hitler Week here at CN. Let’s talk about this cover for a second, can we? So we’ve got the three greatest villains of all time versus the Legion, right? I spot Nero, Hitler of course, and… who is that third rogue? A gangster for sure… but which gangster killed 8million people? I gotta assume he’s a distant third in the biggest villains of all time race here, but still… how would I not have heard of a dude that can hang with Nero and Hitler? Pieces of crap that big usually get some notice.

Also, what’s up with the swastika? It looks sort of haphazard. Like one leg is longer than the others… doesn’t seem like a pro look for the head of the national socialist state.

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 bad? Dude is the king.

Here’s a poster for your wall. Restrictor-plate racing action. Hail to the king.

For the Simonson Completist Only

If you’re not into picking up every piece of Walt Simonson-related collectable on this planet, you lame. Also, this post is not for you.

Remember when Simonson was doing licensed books like Close Encounters? No? Don’t feel weird, no one does. But here it is. With Klaus Janson!

What’s that you say? You want production art worth 1/1000 of what an original piece would cost you? Done. Here you go. And it’s from a run you remember. Simonson on X-Factor. Inferno! Forget Thor, this is the book he was born to do.

Now you’re demanding a Simonson cover on a completely forgettable Sherlock Holmes DC book? You want Denny O’Neil to have scripted this thing you won’t read? You are hard to please. But I got you.

Rep Your Set! Comic Book Attire For the True Superfan

Toss it out to the world that you love comics. Fly your freak flag high!

This is casual attire for a townie bar or a comic book convention. Clever.

I don’t buy leather jackets. Is this overpriced? Buy it anyway just because the dude is doing some variation on “The Fonz” in his auction photos.

What has been seen, cannot be unseen. You know what you must now do. Purchase.

Viva Mexican Comics

Ok, so if we’re going to get technical, some of these aren’t Mexican comics, they’re translated comics from the US. But let’s not get too heavy here and instead just acknowledge that Mexico is awesome and celebrate that fact by bidding on some comics. Buy them for a friend who is building a bar in the hip part of town. He can frame them and it’ll be “clever” or something.

You know this guy. Diabolico. He’s “El Hombre Que No Something A Nada!”

Sexual truckers. Viva.

It does seem gran.

The fact that I don’t speak the language makes this comic 20x more bizarre, and appealing.

Animal Magnetism

I don’t normally get sappy and gush over work in these posts, but I’m going to have to this time so please excuse me. I just reread the Grant Morrison run on Animal Man. The end teetered on idiocy and then pulls out into brilliance in a way I’ve never seen before. It’s straight-up genius. And what’s more, it’s powerful in an exceptionally rare way. I almost cried. Think about that for a second. How often does that happen when you read anything, nevermind a comic from the big two?

Here’s a page of art from that series. Chas Truog’s work took a few issues to convince me, but I eventually warmed up to it and now see it as an important part of the series. This is a low-key set of panels where nothing really happens, but fans of the series will be quick to tell you those pages were the ones that powered the book. Good price. Buy this. Read Animal Man issues 1-26. Today. Do this.

Scary Stuff

Are horror comics scary? Probably not, unless you’re six-years-old. But they can occasionally get creepy and are almost always fun. It’s getting hard to compete with interactive media like video games that can provide actual jump-out-of-your-seat moments, but horror comics soldier on. In honor of the holiday, here’s a random selection of reasonably-priced terrifying comic auctions.

Old stuff is incapable of being scary (stop lying, classic horror fans) but it is capable of being cool as hell.

This is a little more like it. Still not scary, but starting to get disturbing at least.

Man, I don’t even know how to explain this garbage. Who wants this? It’s not gross, it’s not scary, it’s not cool, it’s just turd. And this was from 1981! Kids were smoking crack by then, how is this supposed to thrill anyone? Misstep, DC.

Bruce Jones really hits the spot for wonderfully clever but intrinsically throwaway horror shorts. This series did everything right. Buy all these today. Highest recommendation.

Wonder Wall

Here’s one for your wall. Don’t be a herb and squirrel this one away with your other original art. This is meant for hanging. Dining-room material. You don’t need to be a Ryan Sook fan or a Wonder Woman fan to appreciate what this would add to your office wall. It’s clean and direct, two sensibilities any room can benefit from. Buy this one and hang it, don’t hide it.
