“And Now For The KILL!” COMICS! Sometimes I Think You Are Going To Ignore this Particular Comic Until It Swims Up And Bites You On The Ass!

John Kane

Ho-Ho-HOOK JAW! Season’s Greetings from the ACTION Age of AGGRO! Anyway, this…

“Anybody Who Expects GRATITUDE From A Cat Is A REAL Asshole…” COMICS! Sometimes It Might Just Be A Beautifully Illustrated Black Joke At The Expense of Catholicism!

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 Sometimes All Other Priorities Are Rescinded!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…

“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…

“DO NOT Get In The Car.” COMICS! Sometimes I Just Want To Hug Scotland.

John Kane

Yeah, thanks Scotland. We’re stronger together and all that. But no time to shilly shally lets get on with kicking the Tories out. In the meantine I read some comics and then wrote some words about them. I wouldn’t grace them with the term reviews but, you know, it’s content. NIGHTWORLD by Leandri & McGovern Anyway, this…

“Don’t Make A Noise Or I’ll Send The Devil A Henchman.” COMICS! Sometimes My Eyes Get A Rough Ride!

John Kane

Content, he said tersely, and spun upon his heel to leave. What? Conan. It’s Conan. It’s always been Conan. So cleave the break asunder and have at it with much vigour. Anyway, this…

“They’re As Big As The Sky…” COMICS! Sometimes The Eyes Have It!

John Kane

O, America! There you go again sneaking another holiday in! Did it involve turkeys? You and your turkeys, America! Well, there’s no holiday from me going on about something I read. Much as both of us might wish otherwise. Was it a turkey though? Eh? Eh? Some clever word play there. Force your own face under the break to find out! Anyway, this…

Farewell, sweet prince: Hibbs on 8/27

Brian Hibbs

Back again!  Under the Jump! Go!

“They’ve Set Fire To The Universe!! Look Out! LOOK OUT!” COMICS! Sometimes We Celebrate The Arrival On Earth of Jack Kirby!!

John Kane

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! The time of the year when we celebrate the eternal magic of the man born on this day in 1917 as Jacob Kurtzberg; a man more commonly known to all as Jack Kirby. I’ll shut my fat yapper now because this is his day and so without any further ado here are a selection of “cosmic”!!! images that just boggle my mind every time I see ‘em. Many happy returns then to the man whose physical form has gone but whose genius transcends mortality. KIRBY!!! Anyway, this…

“They’re Rewriting History. But They Forgot About Me.” VIDEO GAMES! Sometimes I Think After Manic Miner It Was All Downhill.

John Kane

Geeze Louise, it’s a regular content tailback you can see from space we got going on here. Below this is Brian “Two Shops” Hibbs’ Shipping List and under that is Abhay Khosla’s typically effervescent take on the TV pitch comic Fatale. Me, I let the side down and do a good impression of a middle aged man who doesn’t understand what he is looking at or why it is doing those things. Yes! I played a video game and I didn’t have to go to an Arcade to do it. It was in my own home. Food in pill form next. I’m tellin’ ya! IT’S PEOPLE! Oh, be warned; I have no idea how to get pictures off my XBox…  Read More…

Abhay: The Finale of FATALE

Abhay Khosla

FATALE, a comic series by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Elizabeth Breitweiser (published by Image Comics), wrapped up the other day. I’d enjoyed the first five issues well enough; then gotten busy at life during the next 5 and fell off; ended up catching up in trades before the last issue came out. Thought it’d be fun to chat about how it all wrapped up. Spoiler Warning, but chitter-chatter under the jump.

“I’ve Tasted SHOES With More Flavour.” COMICS! Sometimes Despite It Being Summer I Still Sit Here And Write This Rhubarb!

John Kane

As tradition dictates I read some comics and then wrote about them. However, I feel it incumbent upon me to direct your gaze further down the page where two other people have done some real writing. Don’t worry there’s none of that below this cut; consistency is key! By Scioli & Barber Anyway, this…

So Ugly it is Pretty — Hibbs on 8/6/14

Brian Hibbs

Hey, me again — yeah, bi-weekly it is, I think, for now!  Of course, my jibber jabber seems even more jibber jabbery when surrounded by Abhay…. After the cut…..

Abhay: WEAPONS OF MASS DIPLOMACY – No Whammies, No Whammies

Abhay Khosla

This one’s about WEAPONS OF MASS DIPLOMACY, a 2014 release of the hit French graphic novel by “Abel Lanzac” and Christophe Blain, English-Language Edition Published by SelfMadeHero, Translated by Edward Gauvin.  It’s about a young speechwriter who has to draft France’s responses to a “growing international crisis in the Middle East,” based on true events, from the run-up to the Iraq War. So, hopefully, crazy people don’t leave crazy person comments…?  Fingers crossed?  I tried to pare down expressing my own political beliefs some, to hopefully avoid that.  For example, I took out the part where I compared Richard Perle’s soul to photographs of advance-stage STD sores.  I took out an extremely graphic and intensely erotic description of what I think sex and chocolate will be like the…  Read More…

Starting off slow; Hibbs on 7/23/14

Brian Hibbs

OK, spam  on the site locked down, new store pretty close to squared away, maybe I am now in place to start reveiwin’ again.  I’ve certainly been missing it somewhat. I can’t promise this will be every week (in fact, I think I feel confident in announcing that this will NOT be each and every week… unless I do one of those Patreon thingies, in which case then it would be a paid job, and thus an obligation.  But I’m not thinking about doing that until I can prove to MYSELF that I can stay on this horse for a little while. Let’s just go full capsule-style under that jump.

“…So The VILE APPETITES of Mankind Could No Longer Corrupt The Harmony of My PERFECT BODY!” COMICS! Sometimes These Tales of Hoffman Deliver On The Fantastique But Honesty Compels Me To Admit They Are Sorely Lacking In The Opera Department!

John Kane

Hey, I wrote about a comic and now it’s like it never existed. Maybe I just dreamt it all. That’d be spookily appropriate. Unlikely though. Anyway, this…

“Extremely Unlikely, And Definitely Improbably, But Not IMPOSSIBLE” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Whole New World. We Just Need Some Magic Carpets And We’re Set To Go!

John Kane

Hello. I read a comic, did a little dance. Felt it needed more work as a critical medium and fell back on words. Sometimes the Old Ways are best. Anyway, this…

“There’s Nothing WRONG WITH YOU That I Can’t Fix..WITH MY TENTACLES!” COMICS! Sometimes Comics Are Like The Sponge And Must Go Porous!

John Kane

In which I unwisely blurt out some words about a Spongebob comic. If yesterday’s ridiculous farrago is any indication it will in fact really be about Tarot’s chest and largely entail me shouting like a crazy person about people misusing the land in front of my house. Or maybe I got my boat to float this time out. Altogether now, Kids..! By Chabot, Kochalka, HiFi & Comicraft Anyway this…
