Fresh Eyes on Old Books #4 by Dan!

The emmy goes to… Top Chef!  And no one really cares.  Dan talks about old comics… and everyone cares! Batman #126 from 1959. Immediately I want to point out that Hawaii wasn’t a state when this came out, and they have a whole section discussing all 49 states, which is AWESOME.  Also, Robin uses the bat-plane to blast exhaust into a bad guys face just to disable him.  All this happens before Batman and Robin fight the giant Kodiak Bear.  Add in some “native eskimo tongue” and you’ll slowly start to realize how awesome this all is.  And that’s just … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #4 by Dan!

Welcome back to the internet’s most exhausted reviews!  If you see the quality dipping I’ll blame it on the school semester, and we’ll see if Phil bans me from ever writing blog posts again.  Let’s do this: My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Secret Warriors #19 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Alessandro Vitti Secret Warriors is quickly becoming one of Marvel’s most fascinating works.  Month in and month out, Hickman delivers great action, drama, and ideas.  This time it’s probably the most powerful in the positioning of the Howling Commandos reunion juxtaposed with the death of many … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #3 by Dan!

After Scott Pilgrim blew my mind this weekend, is there anything 40+ year old comics can do to be better?  I’m not sure, but let’s find out! Justice League of America #19 from 1963 Another team book?  Absolutely.  The 60’s was a time to let the world buy whatever they wanted, but then trick them into getting more!  This issue has a little bit of everything for JLA fans.  We get Snapper Carr, Doctor Destinty and plenty of ridiculous hijinks.  The issue itself was… interesting?  I’m not sure if that’s quite the right word.  Sometimes I honestly had no idea … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #3 by Dan!

A very nice, very light week arrives at your local comic shop this week, just in time for the schools to be back in session!  Don’t worry, I’ve got an opinion on a fair amount of them.  Also, I’m watching the movie Seven while I write this, so that should lead to an interesting state of mind.  Let’s do this! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Buzzard #3 Writer/Artist: Eric Powell Just a reminder for all of you, Eric Powell is one of (if not The) best writer/artist combinations out in the market today.  If you’re looking for consistently … Continue reading
