Off the Cape: Infinite Kung Fu

By | May 24, 2011 | Columns

Written and Illustrated by Kagan McLeod Infinite Kung Fu walks you through familiar corridors in the house of martial mayhem, but still smashes your face through walls of wonder and into rooms where kung fu is afraid to go. Catastrophe has knocked most of the world back to the middle ages – and to make […]

Friday Recommendation: Alex Toth’s Eclipso

By | May 20, 2011 | Columns

1960s DC: mostly crazy but occasionally, just occasionally, pure genius. I know, I know. “Genius” and “Eclipso” in the same thought pattern? Hop in the time machine after the jump and I’ll explain myself. You don’t need me to tell you that Alex Toth was a genius. There are plenty of people who’ll swear by […]

Crossed-Out Crossovers: Robocop vs. Terminator

By | May 19, 2011 | Columns

Robocop. Terminator. Frank Miller. Walt Simonson. Nothing short of total war, in the best possible way — after the jump. Back in 1992, people still had some degree of respect for Frank Miller. He had a seemingly unassailable position at the comics vanguard, using his clout to stand up for creator rights and co-found the […]

Fund It!: The Weekly 616

By | May 18, 2011 | Columns

When comic fans discuss impressive landmarks in the past decade or so of the medium, one of the first things to be mentioned is DC’s 52. Even with four of DC’s best writers, skepticism ran high regarding whether or not a weekly ongoing series could succeed. It passed with flying colors, though, and serves as […]

Friday Recommendation – Black Heart Billy

By | May 14, 2011 | Columns

Some comics try and redefine the medium by pushing boundaries and throwing their characters into impossibly tragic experiences just to see how they come out on the other end. Other comics aim to intentionally not break the mold and work within the conventions of the medium to tell a story the way they’ve always been […]

Fund It!: The New(er) Teen Titans

By | May 11, 2011 | Columns

Teen Titans has had a bit of a tumultuous time. When the latest volume was started by Geoff Johns in the early 2000’s, it was easily one of DC’s best titles. Since then, it has somewhat stalled out, with plenty of terrible stories “gracing” the pages of the book that used to be one of […]

Crossed-Out Crossovers: Judgment Day

By | May 11, 2011 | Columns

There are two Judgment Day crossovers that I’m aware of within the history of superhero comics. One of them is written by Alan Moore. This is the other one. And boy, is it… it’s really something. Let’s chat after the jump, because I’m not sure the things there are to say about this Judgment Day […]

Comics Should Be Cheap! (5/11/2011)

By | May 11, 2011 | Columns

This is one of those weeks where all of my favorite comics come out at the same time. On the one hand, this is awesome: tons of great comics at once! On the other hand, it makes this week’s Comics Should Be Cheap a bit predictable to those who have been checking out this column […]

Burpee’s Got You Covered!

By | May 9, 2011 | Columns

It’s another week and another set of covers. I apologize that this week is a little late, but I was rather busy on Mother’s Day. Hope all the Mothers out there had a good one, and I hope that all of you with Mothers (whether biological or just in influence) took time out of your days […]

This Month in Comics: April 2011

By | May 3, 2011 | Columns

Comic from letsbefriendsagain.com This month was almost impossible. While I had some rather obvious choices in mind for worst books this month, there were so many GOOD comics it was very difficult to choose books definitively for the best spots. After much thought, I finally picked what they could be, and the results are behind […]

Burpee’s Got You Covered!

By | May 1, 2011 | Columns

Ok, I know. It’s been awhile since one of these has seen the light of day. It’s been an incredibly busy month for me with baby appointments and my wife finishing her Masters degree. Now things have slowed down and I have some relative down time. So to make up for my absence I am […]

Friday Recommendation: Gotham Central

By | Apr 29, 2011 | Columns

On occasion, I buy whole series of books without reading them. You might be thinking, “What? Why? That’s a lot of money on an admittedly huge gamble.” You’re 100% right – it absolutely is. You see, I’m easily suckered into the glitz and glamour of things like “Deluxe Edition” this or “Absolute” that. If you’re […]

Fund It!: The "Return" of John Constantine

By | Apr 28, 2011 | Columns

So it appears that everyone’s favorite magician, John Constantine, is back. Well, he’s never really been gone, but in recent years Constantine’s involvement with the DC Universe has been very, very limited. Now, though, it appears that the Laughing Magician will soon be making his return to the world of brightly-colored capes and tights – […]
