“Ma! Ma! Ma! Ki! Ki! Ki!” MOVIES! VIDEO GAMES! PARENTING! Sometimes there’s Something For Everyone (Except Comics Fans)!

John Kane

As I probably said, I’m quite busy at the minute. But I like to write to relieve the stress. So I wrote this. It’s about the Friday The 13th movies, being a dad, the implacable march of time and the Friday The 13th game on PS4. It’s of limited interest, except to students of the pointlessly self-indulgent. But that’s never stopped me before! Anyway, this…

“And What He IS is GONE.” COMICS! Sometimes Persistence Doesn’t Pay Off.

John Kane

Nearly there. Good soldier. Nearly there. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“Lew’s Gettin’ Me BUPKIS.” COMICS! Sometimes I Wonder Who Will Think Of The Children!

John Kane

In which I talk about a kid’s comic featuring Space Ghost and Green Lantern. That’s right, I’m 47 years old. It’s called living the dream, baby. Living the dream! RUFF’N’REDDY by Chaykin, Quintana and Brosseau

“I’ll TILT-A-WHIRL You…!” Sometimes The Louder You Scream The Faster It Goes!

John Kane

Just one comic, and not too many words. Oh, happy 4th of July, I guess. This one’s for all of my American buddies. (It’s got nothing whatsoever to do with the 4th of July, if I’m being quite honest.) SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE: “The Clown” by Corben Anyway, this…

“Why the Hell Why?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Sobering To Think That This Comic Is Someone’s Idea of Fun.

John Kane

In which I continue to try and make up lost ground by looking at issue 7 (of 8 of 9) of DC Comic’s big-ticket Bat event. By popular demand! Well, two people, anyway. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“See God’s Truth In Loving Action!” COMICS! Sometimes Salmonella Should Be On A Certain Someone’s Mind!

John Kane

I don’t know what happened! I wrote about three whole comics in less than fifty billion words! It won’t happen again. My apologies. I don’t know what I was thinking. I certainly wasn’t thinking about this intro, which is why it’s so weak. Rush politely past it and read on… BLUBBER by Gilbert Hernandez Anyway, this…

“****ing WHITE People, Know’m Sayin’?” COMICS! Sometimes People Are…Complicated!

John Kane

That surly rogue Howard Victor Chaykin had a new comic out, so I took a look. Buckle up, Sunshine… THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA by Chaykin, Bruzenak & Arbutov Anyway, this…

“I Love It When Men Talk About Pork.” COMICS! Sometimes You Just Got To Keep On Killin’ ‘Em All ‘Til All The Killin’ Is Done!

John Kane

In which I look at some PunisherMAX comics. But not the PunisherMAX comics everyone likes. That would be too easy. No, these are the other PunisherMAX comics. The PunisherMAX comics no one ever mentions. The PunisherMAXes Garth Ennis didn’t write. Those PunisherMax comics. PUNISHER: FRANK CASTLE MAX by Parlov, Gischler, Loughridge & Petit Anyway, this…

“They Could Be A Crosstown Bus, A Croissant Or A Crossdresser By Now…” COMICS! Sometimes You Should Have Put  A Ring On It!

John Kane

So I took a break and now I’m back! Like rickets! So here’s far more words than anyone sane would ever need to read about a two-issue comic Howard Victor Chaykin did in 2006. Because, that’s why. Just because. Also: because. Because. GUY GARDNER: COLLATERAL DAMAGE by Chaykin, Madsen & Balsman

“F*** you, Tarzan.” COMICS! Sometimes ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore!

John Kane

In which I aimlessly amble around Howard Victor Chaykin’s recent series ‘Midnight of the Soul’ and see what strikes my fancy. No, really, even more than usual, I just sort of prattle on rather aimlessly and hope some kind of coherent point emerges. It probably won’t, but as I haven’t written it yet we’ll have to find out together. Take my hand, fellow stranger in paradise! Take my hand… MIDNIGHT OF THE SOUL by Chaykin, Arbutov and Bruzenak Anyway, this…

“…Gimme A Circus Like This Anyday.” COMICS! Sometimes We’re In Like Flint!

John Kane

There’s a little bit of Dredd in this one, a smidgeon mayhap. However there is a whole lot of Carlos Ezquerra and he’s really making his computer colouring work in this one. Some real freaky skyscapes going on in the background of these panels. If you’re a Carlos Ezquerra fan you’ll probably want to pick this one up. Oh, looks like I started the review early, better put the rest under the jump. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! CURSED EARTH KOBURN by Carlos Ezquerra Anyway, this…

“Death Among The Hors D’oeuvres.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Tough, Tough Toys For Tough, Tough Boys!

John Kane

What would Thunderbirds be like in the world of Judge Dredd? My dog has no nose; why isn’t Robbie Morrison funny? What if the messiah was susceptible to weed killer?  What would be the absolute best name for a character in a very cold place? Can a gun be too big? And if war is so terrible why is it so good for John Wagner? All questions I’ll probably forget to answer in the latest jolly riverdance through the JUDGE DREDD MEGA COLLECTION. JUDGE DREDD: THE HEAVY MOB by P J Holden Anyway, this…

“#i!” COMICS! Sometimes Tenderness Is A Weakness.

John Kane

There now follows a change to our scheduled programme. Settle back as our Argentinian chums Eduardo Risso and the late Carlos Trillo take us on a trip to the near future where everything is awful; simply awful. Just dreadful, darlings. Ugh. (Oh, And I realise Argentina isn’t in Europe but the book was originally published in Italy(?), which is in Europe so check and mate!) BORDERLINE by Risso & Trillo and Brandon

SUNDAY BARBECUE: Abhay x Civil War II – The Conclusion

The final part in a short series of write-em-ups written in a panicked rush, for no discernible reason.

SUNDAY BARBECUE: Abhay x Civil War II – Issues Five and Six

There’s a lot here to point at and snicker about.  Let me try to have at least one of these be a little more coherent… Let’s see how that goes!

SUNDAY BARBECUE: Abhay x Civil War II – Issues Three and Four

Whoever finishes a revolution only halfway, digs his own grave. — Georg Buchner

SUNDAY BARBECUE: Abhay x Civil War II – Issues One and Two

SUNDAY BARBECUE: Abhay x Civil War II — Prelims

“Sometimes I won. Mostly I lost. But you put the show on speed… I chew all they asses up. All them Grand Masters and them Europeans… with they government subsidies and whatnot to sit on they asses and play all day… they ain’t livin’in the world. Put the clock on ’em, put the heat on they backs, they break down. Put ’em in the park fishin’ for dollars, and they break. That’s Bobby Fisher– some say he’s the greatest player to ever play the game. I never played him. All them patzers sittin’ around the park… waitin’ for him to go back there, like Jesus. Me, I don’t give a shit. Put the clock on that motherfucker… I’ll chew his…  Read More…

“I Guess You Could Call It An EYEFUL SORE!” COMICS! Sometimes That Joke Isn’t Punny Anymore!

John Kane

Bit of a hybrid this time out. It’s a little bit European and a little bit American. Something for everyone! Also, Batman! Everyone loves Batman! Unfortunately it’s kind of terrible. But, wait! I’m getting ahead of myself… BATMAN: EUROPA by Parel, Camuncoli, Casali, Azzarello and Brosseau Anyway, this…

“…Do Not Adjust Your Brains!” COMICS! Sometimes “M-O-O-N” Spells “Moon”, Despite What Tom Cullen Thinks.

John Kane

Judge Dredd on the moon. That’s it. JUDGE DREDD: DARKSIDE by Marshall Anyway, this…

“NOBODY Calls Me CHICKEN HEAD!” COMICS! Sometimes I Hope You Brought A Clean Pair Of Pants.

John Kane

Are you ready to quiver in horripilation at the future terrors accosting Mega-City One’s premiere lawman? No, well come back when you are. JUDGE DREDD: THE HAUNTING OF SECTOR HOUSE 9 by Brett Ewins Anyway, this…
