By | Nov 20, 2009 | Columns

Oh Friday Recommendation. How I’ve missed you. There are so many books I wish to recommend, so much to talk about. The reason for my prolonged absence in writing this column is my own fault. I wanted to hold off so I and I alone could have the pleasure of writing this particular article. That […]

LCBS Spotlight: Bedrock Comics

By | Nov 17, 2009 | Columns

We’re coming close to the end of MA reign of LCBS spotlights. While there are several stores I’ve been too that are worth mentioning, I don’t visit them enough in order to be able to write concise commentary on the store. As far as memory serves, there’s only two stores I have left that I […]

Friday Recommendation: Madame Mirage

By | Nov 13, 2009 | Columns

A small beef was ignited a couple of weeks ago during our Francis Manapul. It was nothing serious, and I don’t even think anyone at Top Cow was truly miffed, but our interviewer made a small crack about the genre of so called “T & A” comics and it was misconstrued as us not liking […]

Friday Recommendation: Generation X

By | Nov 6, 2009 | Columns

I picked Generation X as my Friday Rec this week. It ‘s an older series and isn’t readily available in trades but if you can find the initial run by Chris Bachalo and Scott Lobdell it is worth your time and money. Their initial run was filled with adventure, fun and off the wall oddball […]

For the second edition of our Saturday Showdown series, Matt and I discuss one of the hottest topics in comics today: should Steve Rogers or Bucky Barnes be Captain America after Captain America: Reborn.

In last the premiere Saturday Showdown between Matt and David, something was brought up that hurt me to my very core. David dissed my girl Psylocke. Everyone who’s a regular reader knows she’s my favorite X-Man. and well, I think it calls for a Character Spotlight. The woman known has Elisabeth “Betsy” Braddock has a […]

Small Press Spotlight: Barry Ween, Boy Genius

By | Oct 27, 2009 | Columns

This week on my Small Press Spotlight series, I’d like to highlight an older series (it ran from 1999 to 2003…sort of) that is woefully under read. Before I announce the title, I do want to say a few caveats: the first three issue series was released by decidedly not small press Image Comics, but […]

This week I am stepping in for fellow writer Brandon, as he has engagements that prevent him from being able to get a Friday Recommendation to you, our fair readers. However, that works out for all of us as that means you get a double dose of David, as this week and next week will […]
