Too Many Comics! – Wolverine

By | Oct 20, 2010 | Columns

It’s about time I aimed my crosshairs at him! My column has been all about pointing out characters who are in an excessive amount of ongoings, and Wolverine is sort of a “classic” in that regard. Most people have often remarked that Wolverine has somehow made it into every major team book, and that to […]

Steve Lieber is My Hero

By | Oct 19, 2010 | Columns

When people discuss the most well loved artists in the industry, a lot of names come up from the current set of creators. People like David Mazzucchelli, JH Williams III, Darwyn Cooke and the brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon get a lot of rep, and deservedly so. They’re wonderfully talented artists, and for all […]

Too Many Comics! – Captain America

By | Oct 13, 2010 | Columns

Welcome back to one of the more difficult articles to write! In today’s world of super heroes and tights, we get a lot of comics featuring a lot of the same characters. It happens, right? But this year at NYCC, some news broke that made me realize: geez Louise, Papa Cheese! Captain America has SO […]

Comics Should Be Cheap! (10-13-10)

By | Oct 13, 2010 | Columns

That means, our faithful readers, that your $20 will start going much further very soon. Until then, we’re back again with our writing staff picking […]

This past weekend was New York Comic Con, and there was a ton of big announcements and exciting panels for all to behold. With all of the hoopla though, who exactly came out better off than they were before the con started? Whose stock is rising and whose is falling after NYCC? Find my picks […]

Friday Recommendation – Origin

By | Oct 8, 2010 | Columns

Way back in 2001, in the wake of the first X-Men movie making a much bigger splash than anyone really anticipated, Marvel got this crazy notion into their heads. So convinced were they that if they did not tell the immensely popular Wolverine’s origin, which had theretofore been unknown to both character and audience, that […]

Too Many Comics! – Batman

By | Oct 6, 2010 | Columns

A lot of people know I love to take shots at Batman. In fact, I borderline hate the character these days – and this quite frequently leads to fights with friends and fellow comic fans as I try to explain why I think he’s one of the worst characters in comics. But that’s another conversation […]

Comics Should Be Cheap! (10-6-10)

By | Oct 6, 2010 | Columns

With the past few weeks of comics being very small and weak for the most part, it’s been tough to even find $20 worth of top notch comics. This week? Not so much, as we’re overwhelmed by a bevy of exceptional comics from a ton of big time creators (and a lot of exciting first […]

Off the Cape: AKA Goldfish

By | Oct 5, 2010 | Columns

In my mind, Brian Bendis is one of the most relatable comic book writers in comics. An incredibly friendly guy, Bendis came from a place that many of us live in. He’s a huge fan of comic books that was working in a comic book store and wanted to make his own books. And eventually, […]

David’s Got You Covered (Week of 9/29/10)

By | Oct 3, 2010 | Columns

What a spectacularly mediocre week of comics! This week featured my smallest stack in recent memory, and one that wasn’t even that memorable once I actually read the comics. With that said, there were some very nice covers, especially from books that I didn’t read. Note: I’ll be taking this column over going forward, and […]

Off the Cape: Koko Be Good

By | Sep 29, 2010 | Columns

This week on Off the Cape, I’ve got a recent release from First Second Books from frequent Flight contributor Jen Wang: Koko Be Good. This book has garnered a good amount of buzz without me being aware of it – I simply was walking to buy my books at my local comic book shop when […]

David’s Got You Covered (Week of 9/22/10)

By | Sep 26, 2010 | Columns

Brandon is tied up this week, so I’ll be handling the cover touting duties for the week. Except I get the unfortunate distinction of having to write about one of the worst release weeks in terms of titles in…well, as long as I can really remember. This week only one cover really kills it for […]
