Fresh Eyes On Old Books #11 by Dan!

It’s a Sunday afternoon, so we all know what that means!  Old-timey comics! Conan The Barbarian #8 from 1971 Oh the Bronze Age… A little less lighthearted than the Silver Age, and nowhere near as gritty as the present.  So we get titles like Conan.  You might remember the Schwarzenneger movie of the same name, but surprise(!)… there was a comic first.  This issue of Conan is exactly what you’d expect it to be, a quest for treasure, an enemy that becomes a friend, and Conan having to run away from someone trying to capture him.  Once you add in … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #7 by Dan

It’s an all-DC special today.  We have three interesting comics to look at.  Let’s do this!

Fresh Eyes On Old Books #5 by Dan!

I have nothing clever to say this time around, let’s do this! Adventure Comics #302 from 1962 By a specific request from one commenter (Bill D…, who could that be?)  I have decided to take a look at some good old fashioned Legion stories.  To start off, this isn’t just the Legion of Super-Heroes.  It, of course, involves Superboy well before he was Superman in a story that involved robots!  Not much there content wise, but the Sun-Boy story was a really good one.  Splitting this book into two stories both helps and hurts it.  Everything happens nice and quickly, … Continue reading
