Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #210

Dark Horse Presents #6 — Creators: Peter Hogan/Steve Parkhouse;  Carla Speed McNeil; Evan Dorkin/Jill Thompson;  Fabio Moon;  Neal Adams;  Howard Chaykin;  Andi Watson As always, this anthology delivers considerable quality for its $8 price, with stand-alone stories from Watson (Skeleton Key), Moon, and Dorkin/Thompson (their stellar Beasts of Burden) supply the meat, while chapters of ongoing serials from the others provide the side dishes — ten stories in all, 80 high-gloss pages of squarebound goodness, making this the Thanksgiving treat of the week. Fantastic Four #600 — Writer: Jonathan Hickman;  Art:  Steve Epting/Rick Magyar;  Carmine di Giandomenico;  Ming Doyle;  Leinil … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes On Old Books #32 by Dan!

I just want to put out a useless fact for you guys right now. With this post, if you look directly to your left on the website, I now have one more post than Marsha! That means I’m coming for you next Alan… And in 40 years I’ll catch up with Phil. Let’s do this! House of Mystery 144 from 1964 I’ve reviewed House of Mystery four times already, but it’s never had a superhero story on the cover… until now!

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #206

The Simpsons’  Treehouse of Terror #17 — Creators: Zander Cannon, Gene Ha, Jane Wiedlin, Tom Hodges, Jim Woodring Hallowe’en comics already? Well, yes… October’s beginning next week, and Safeway already has pumpkins out, so it must be time for the Simpsons’ annual gift to alt-comics fans. Woodring’s the most stellar creator in display here, and his offering, a tribute to sleazy off-brand ’50s horror comics, is great fun. So too for the Cannon/Ha contribution that leads off the book, a beautifully-drawn homage to Nosferatu, the 1922 silent movie that was the first vampire film. The Wiedlin/Hodges offers the most on-model … Continue reading
