Phil’s Reviews : Stuff I Bought #284

Last week for the DC special covers, so let’s check them out (now that we’ve figured out how to animate them automatically), and then take a quick look at some of the best of this week’s other offerings: Harley Quinn #1 — Writers: Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor;  Art: Chad Hardin This Futures End one-shot comes the closest of all of them to just being a regular issue of the comic: it’s by the same creative team, and its tongue-in-cheek style means it doesn’t care about continuity anyway (a good thing, since the Futures End Suicide Squad #1 a few … Continue reading

It Came From the Back Room #52

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.

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
