“…But The Truth Is Probably Just This…” COMICS! Sometimes We Weren’t Worthy!

John Kane

Okay, okay. So I can’t keep that pace up. Back to the old as and when, I’m afraid. Stop cheering, already. Show a little class, huh. Sergio Ponchione. Steve Ditko. Jack Kirby. Wallace Wood. Anyway, this…

“Seems Like Even The GODS Have Their ACCIDENTS!” COMICS! Sometimes The King Is Still Dead!

John Kane

“Tarru!” to you, too!! Just look at the creators on this thing! It’s like the comic book equivalent of one of those Irwin Allen films where Steve McQueen and Paul Newman jockey for top billing, Fred Astaire tumbles burning out of a lift, Michael Caine shouts about bloody, bloody bees and Gene Hackman tells God off with his steam blistered fists raised. It isn’t a movie, but is it a disaster? TALES OF THE NEW GODS by John Paul Leon, Kevin McCarthy, John Workman & Tatjana Wood Anyway this…

“..When You’re Digging For Artifacts…Don’t Bury Your Reputation!” COMICS! Sometimes I Guess You Can’t Trust An Orangutan!

John Kane

In which I continue to drag you along on my cheerless trudge through all the 1970s Marvel UK issues of Planet of the Apes Weekly a man at work lent me that time. Doesn’t it just make everything in your life seem radiant with an inner light by comparison? Suit yourself. Planet of the Apes by George Tuska, Mike Esposito & Doug Moench Anyway, this…

“You Can’t…Put A BULLET…In A NIGHTMARE!” COMICS! Sometimes Pleasures Can Be Dark Indeed!

John Kane

Thanks to the snow and the UK’s inability to ever cope with it I got a bit of extra time (but not your…kisss!). I’ll have to make that time up mind you, but don’t you worry about that, because here’s a pitiful splatter of words about a collection of Tom Sutton’s work on Charlton’s “ghost” line of comics. I should probably tell you upfront that I liked ‘em, because I know I can be a bit equivocal about this stuff. Anyway, this…

“Man HAS No Understanding, Dr. Zira! He Can Be Taught A Few Simple TRICKS Nothing More!” COMICS! Sometimes I’m Just Glad I Don’t Have Ka-Zar’s Vet Bills!

John Kane

In which I continue to fly in the face of popular opinion, medical advice, and common sense to continue my languorous amble through Marvel UK’s Planet of the Apes Weekly. Planet of the Apes by Tuska, Esposito & Moench Anyway, this…

“You Who Are Reading Me Now Are A Different Breed – I Hope A Better One.” COMICS! Sometimes You Stop And Find Forty Years Have Slipped Down The Back of The Sofa!

John Kane

Yes! This is a thing which is happening! It’s the second patience sapping instalment of the world’s slowest and most digressive crawl through Marvel UK’s Planet of the Apes Weekly (1974 – 1977). O ye of little faith! Run, you fools! Planet of the Apes by George Tuska, Mike Esposito & Doug Moench Anyway, this…

“The Friend Of Man…A FIVE POUND NOTE!” COMICS! Sometimes You Better Mind Your Langridge!

John Kane

Ugh, January. Anway, I had a quiet hour or two so here’s a couple of comics I liked in 2014 that I thought didn’t get enough play. I’ll just rectify that then… Starslammers by Simonson, Workman & Ory Anyway, this…

“…His Wisdom Must Walk Hand In Hand With His Idiocy.” INSANE RAMBLING! COMICS! Sometimes It’s Context Of The Planet Of The Apes!

John Kane

Laydeez enn gennelmen! Please be seated for tonight’s presentation. Refreshments are available from the kiosk. Smoking is permitted in the auditorium because this is the 1970s and we are all going to live forever. Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, this is the 1970s. This is the Bronze Age. And this? This is the Preamble to The Planet of the Apes. (Again.) Cher on The Planet of the Apes. Yes, Really. Anyway, this…

John Kane

During 1990-91 DC Comics published one of the finest comics ever created. Its sales did not set the world afire. In December 2014 you get the chance to put things right. In December 2014 DC Comics are publishing, for the first time ever, the collected TWILIGHT by Howard Victor Chaykin, José Luis García-López, Ken (Kenneth) Bruzenak, Steve Oliff and Richard Ory. I like it and I think you will too. (Now UPDATED to include quotes and acknowledgements.) From TWILIGHT by Chaykin, Garcia-Lopez, Bruzenak, Oliff & Ory Anyway, this…

“No WANDERING OFF.” COMICS (and MOVIES)! Sometimes All Other Priorities Are Rescinded!

John Kane

Hello! You can blame this one on a conversation I had at a party. I say party but at my age that’s four men in a suburban living room with some nibbles and tinnies with the conversation always one slurred word away from movies. At that point it’s all about ALIEN from my end of the couch. And so is this huge block of stale drivel. It’s a bit wayward but if you stick with it I do mention comics eventually. Dedicated to the enduring magic of the wrestler, teacher and actor Mr. Brian Glover (1934-1997). Anyway, this…

“The Day Terry Vanished.” COMICS! Sometimes You Should Take Off And Nuke The Idea From Orbit. It’s The Only Way To Be Sure!

“F*** it. I’ll Do It Meself.” MOVIES! Sometimes No Matter How Warm The Fire Is You Shouldn’t Sit With Your Back To The World!

John Kane

In which an old man suckers you in by talking about a movie you might have seen recently and then bores your balls bald by chuntering on about a triple bill of flamboyantly and unrepentantly 1970s Vincent Price horror movies. Cardomon – it’s the spice of life! No, wait, it’s variety! Anyway, this…

“I Think Guys Don’t Know These Things.” COMICS! Sometimes I May Be Slow To Praise But When I Praise It Comes Like The Rains!

John Kane

Sometimes people stop me in the street and ask me to stop following them what the best monthly periodical genre comic currently on the stands is. And I tell them, all these people who I’m pretending constantly stop me in the street and ask that question, that the best monthly periodical genre comic currently on the stands is STRAY BULLETS. I haven’t said that before on here because, honestly, I didn’t think it needed saying. It seems I thought wrong. So no blame, no shame and let’s don our knuckle dusters, knuckle down and rectify this shabby state of affairs right damn now. Also, I tell you how to get CHEAP COMICS!!! Yeah, thought you’d like that. Anyway, this…
