Fresh Eyes on Old Books #19 by Dan!

It’s now a Sunday!  So you know what that means… More old stuff! Let’s do this! Green Lantern #47 from 1966 So this is an absolutely classic Gil Kane comic, and it’s absolutely amazing to look at.  The story is completely doofy, but what do you expect form the 60s?  Hal Jordan has to fight a red alien creature that is spreading diseases across the universe, including an alien that uses 100% of it’s brain (editors note reminds us that we don’t use all of ours).  With all the problems of the “red disease” that this issue has, I start … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #15 by Dan!

All right folks!  It was a seriously huge week, so let’s get down to business! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Fantastic Four #587 Writer: Jonathan Hickman, Artist: Steve Epting I am shocked.  I really have not cared about the Hickman FF run at all.  I found it boring, pretentious and convoluted.  Then the last six pages of this issue happened.  I know that you’ve probably all heard about the death, but I don’t feel like spoiling it.  Just know that it was in a super bad-ass take no prisoners, kicking and screaming kinda way, adding … Continue reading
