Let’s Do This! My Top Five (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Thor the Mighty Avenger #8 Writer: Roger Langridge Artist: Chris Samnee And with this, the best comic that none of you were actually reading comes to a close.  I don’t even know what to tell you guys.  This was probably one of the best books on … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #12 by Dan!

All right folks, it’s a Saturday morning, so you know what that means!  Review time! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Black Panther: The Man Without Fear #513 Writer: David Liss Artist: Francesco Francavilla This book was surprisingly awesome.  As was the case with Spider-man during “One More Day”, maybe Shadowland will lead to something much more fun.  Black Panther shows up fresh of his last failed series (has that been six?) to be a street level fighter on a quest for personal redemption.  He’s abandoned his family and kingdom to try to reconnect with the … Continue reading

It Came From the Back Room #11

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items. I’m going through the alphabet backwards (don’t ask), and at my speed (especially with the school year now in full gear), this amounts to a two-year project.

It Came From the Back Room #10

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items.

I’m currently on the Marvel “M” stuff, and here are some of the titles I’ve been encountering: Marvel Premiere: This is one of those institutions peculiar to comics: the try-out book, which a company uses to publish a couple of issues of a new series, and, if sales … Continue reading

It Came From the Back Room #8

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items. I’m going through the alphabet backwards (don’t ask), and at my speed (especially with the school year now in full gear), this amounts to a two-year project. I’m currently on the Marvel “M” stuff, and here are some of the titles I’ve been encountering: Marvel Two-In-One This is Marvel’s ’70s/’80s Thing team-up book, which lasted exactly 100 issues.
