Friday Recommendation: Starman

By | Feb 12, 2010 | Columns

Ask any comic aficionado about James Robinson’s Starman, and most will paint it in a very positive light. But ask many of these same experts for a superhero recommendation, and you’ll hear all the (admittedly well-picked) standards: All-Star Superman, The Immortal Iron Fist, Green Lantern: Rebirth, etc. Don’t get me wrong, each of these are […]

Web Comic Spotlight: SMASH!

By | Feb 8, 2010 | Columns

Webcomics aren’t exactly my thing. I don’t know, but in general they’ve never really clicked for me. I’m always looking for little comics and humorous things I can read, but I’ve never become attached to any comics that I can follow online with a regular basis like I do the comics I go and pick […]

Friday Recommendation

By | Feb 6, 2010 | Columns

So this isn’t really a Friday Rec as it appears i’m placing this on our fair site on a Saturday. It also is a touch different than usual Recs. This one is less about a book to read and more about one of my favorite comic companions. Find out what it is after the jump! […]

Web Comic Spotlight: Axe Cop

By | Feb 4, 2010 | Columns

In case you’ve been hiding lately, there is a webcomic sensation taking over the internet, and it’s written by a five year old. Seriously. The comic is Axe Cop, and its origins are about as original as the comic itself. While visiting for Christmas, 29 year old comic artist Ethan Nicolle was playing with his […]

Character Spotlight: Renee Montoya

By | Feb 3, 2010 | Columns

Many supporting characters dream of the day they can become full-fledged protagonists, but rarely do they achieve that level of stardom. While I may be speaking in a very strange metaphor, few comic characters have started from such humble beginnings as former Gotham Police Officer and current bearer of The Question mantle, Renee Montoya. Renee […]

Small Press Spotlight: Stumptown

By | Feb 2, 2010 | Columns

In my time running this weekly column, I’ve always seemed to target comics that have been over for quite some time or are not being printed right then. Not sure why that is, but perhaps that’s the nature of smaller press publishers. However, this week I have a title that is both new and currently […]

Friday Recommendation: Scott Pilgrim

By | Jan 29, 2010 | Columns

“WHAT? Scott Pilgrim hasn’t been recommended yet?” That was my initial reaction when I realized that this little gem had not been recommended. And with the movie adaptation coming out this summer (August 13th, according to the director himself), you should do yourself a favor and check out the series that started it all. I […]

Burpee’s Got You Covered!

By | Jan 24, 2010 | Columns

Another week and another set of covers that I feel were pretty sweet. Well either they were badass or I want to mock and ridicule them. Until you check out the column though you’ll never know which it’s going to be. What do we have this week? We have Spidey villains, artists I don’t enjoy […]

Burpee’s Got You Covered!

By | Jan 17, 2010 | Columns

Last week I complained that the weeks books didn’t provide me with enough quality covers. I hooped that there would be a better selection this week. Was there? Yes! Yes there was thankfully. I actually had a hard time narrowing the covers down but in the end I was able to make great sacrifices to […]

Comic Critics: A Webcomic About Comics

By | Jan 14, 2010 | Columns

I’m not really big on online webcomics. That’s usually David’s territory. I read Penny Arcade (because everybody reads Penny Arcade) and XKCD (science!), but that’s about it. I haven’t found any that have spoken to me. In the past, though, I’ve given props to online series that focus on comics, like The Variants, Lil’ Batman, […]
