Ask the Professor #2: Cyber-Comics

Shatter #1

Question for the Professor: Hello, Phil! When I was a lad, back in the ’80s, I had the opportunity to buy a special edition of Iron Man. It was a futuristic comic book and the drawings were made entirely in computer graphic software. Unfortunately I DIDN’T BUY it (how stupid I am) and now I can’t find it anymore! I looked all over the internet…. I would be very glad if you could help me! Thanks, Ed from Brazil Impressively, I actually knew this one (although I had to do some Googling — and some reading in the Overstreet Price … Continue reading

Dare Devil #8

Daredevil #8 — Writer: Mark Waid;  Art: Kano DD continues to be a bright spot among the Marvel books — literally, since its pages are splashed with lots of reds, blues and other primary colors. That gives it a unique look (even when a different artist is drawing it, as here, although Kano turns out to be a good match for the previous pencillers), and suits its sunny, optimistic stories.

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #38 by Dan!

IronMan23

All right folks, we’re now in a post-graduate world for me. So let’s see how much that edjumacation I got really pays off. Let’s do this! Iron Man #23 from 1970 All right, I’ll admit it, I laughed at how this issue ended up. A random lady that I’m completely unfamiliar with tries to get Tony Stark to help her. She’s part of some seedy organization and they’re out to kill her, so they hired a mercenary named… wait for it… The Mercenary to take care of her. Tony Stark and Iron Man both set up The Mercenary to engage … Continue reading

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.
