Abhay: Inquisition- Detective Comics #35 & #36

Abhay Khosla

Intro text!  I love it! This is the 5th in a series of question-and-answer sessions about recent comics.  The same 10 questions get asked in each installment of this series; the answers are sometimes different, except when I get sleepy, then I just copy-paste and hope no one notices. Past installments have been about The Valiant #1, Bitch Planet #1, Rumble #1, and The Names #1.  This week breaks from the all #1 issue motif that had been going before, so that I could try out a complete two-part story.  How exciting!  INTRO TEXT!

Abhay: Inquisition – The Names #1

Abhay Khosla

This is a series of reviews, answering (too many!) questions about recent comics. Previous installments have been about The Valiant #1, Bitch Planet #1, and Rumble #1.  This week is about The Names #1, from DC Vertigo. Spoiler Opportunity: Have I ever spoiled a comic for you?  Now’s your chance to get me back because I have only read the first issue of this comic so far, but a bunch have come out since.  If you’ve read this comic (and statistically-speaking, you haven’t), now is your time for revenge.  “Now is our time for revenge” — I think that was a line from the Phantom Menace.  Oh wait, did I just spoil the Phantom Menace for you??  If so, revenge can be yours…  Read More…

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).

Abhay: Inquisition – Rumble #1

Abhay Khosla

Here is the 3rd attempt at answering a series of questions about a comic, this attempt concerning the recent Image debut of Rumble. Part 1 was about The Valiant #1, and Part 2 was about Bitch Planet #1.

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…

Abhay: Inquisition – Bitch Planet #1

Abhay Khosla

This is part of a series of write-em-ups answering a series of questions about recent comics.  As an initial matter, please be advised that this will likely discuss details of the plot in the comic being discussed, and so here is a spoiler warning. Also, sponge warning: be careful of sponges that you use to wash your dishes.  According to no less scientific a news source than the Daily Mail, a “kitchen sponge is 200,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat – and could even lead to PARALYSIS.”

Abhay: Inquisition– The Valiant #1

Abhay Khosla

For the last couple of years, I’ve been trying to write a certain kind of essay– one that always kind of remained a little out of my reach but was fun to chase after. But lately, maybe for longer than I actually knew myself, it’s been time to pivot, and try something a little different. I want to pivot to something a little closer to what one of the bad guys in that movie Dead Poets Society would write. Start running more of a J. Evans Pritchard fan-club. So, this is what I’m going to be doing for a little while (at least for the next five whole weeks since I’ve written five of these, but I quit real easy so who…  Read More…

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…

Why I Hate The Comics Industry, Part 8756412

Brian Hibbs

SENSATION COMICS #3 is a pretty great comic — it’s the kind of comic you could give to a 10 year old girl, or her 45 year old hipster mother equally.  It is kind of exactly the kind of WW comic that a whole swath of people really really want right now, because empowering but also really really cute.  I can absolutely sell this comic to a LOT of folks. Except for the barrier they put in my way…. Come under the cut and I will explain….

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

John Kane

That’s right, it has been a while! No flies on you, me old mucker. Cringing apologies duly tendered and all that. Just so you don’t think The Savage Critics don’t love you anymore here’s some words about a comic. Anyway, this…

“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…
