“I’m Starting To Miss My Trolley.” COMICS! Sometimes I Purr Like A Kitten!

John Kane

Alright, let’s try that capsule business again. Took a little bit of the wormwood out this time around and drizzled it with some milk of human kindness. Serves two. Should be plenty of leftovers then. By Scioli and Barber Anyway, this…

“I Was Gone For Only THREE YEARS.” COMICS! Sometimes A Bit More Thought Wouldn’t Go Amiss!

John Kane

Okay, here are some words about some (near)recent comics. I guess they are capsules, relatively speaking that is. Although, after this one some of my relatives won’t be speaking to me, particularly the Morrison branch. Anyway, this…

“SHAL TO’RE AMZI!” COMICS! Sometimes You Find The Newstand Is Still There!

John Kane

I don’t know if you noticed but I spent much of the first part of this magical year telling you how Marvel©™ chose to present and package their comics in the United Kingdom during the 1970s. Through the somewhat cumbersome time travel device of being old I am now in a position to tell you how Marvel©™ present and package their comics in the United Kingdom in the science fictional sounding year of 2015. Captain America by Romita Jnr, Janson, White, Remender & Caramagna Anyway, this…

Abhay: Quickly on Two Recent Superhero Comics

Abhay Khosla

(Work on getting back to this year’s Inquisition series is proceeding slowly.  Sorry for the delays.  I just woke up and started to write a little brief thing about two superhero comics that I’d read the other night, to get my fingers moving for work– I thought I’d write one or two paragraphs. Anyways, it started running long, so I’ll just put it here rather.  Just a quick pointless little note:)

“If I’m Reading Those Erect Nipples Right, YOU’RE Having A Good Time.” COMICS! Sometimes They Might Be A Wee Bit Too Hard-Boiled.

John Kane

Hey, I wrote some words about a comic. They’re under the break, somewhere. I think that’s how it works. Mostly this one is about how people will still be awful in the future and how Rick Burchett is The Balls. Sorry, still shaking the rust off. PULP FANTASTIC by Burchett, Chaykin & Tischman, Bruzenak & Loughridge Anyway, this…

The new DC Costumes

Brian Hibbs

Not that anyone really needs to hear what I think, but several of the new costume designs for the DC icons look like pure sales death for those characters. I’m not so worried about the Batman Robot look because Snyder and Capullo have been SLAUGHTERING it on BATMAN, and I’m more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt as a result; and the Green Lantern with a hoodie look is terrible, but GL sales have already dropped to their lowest point in a decade or more, so there’s not a lot of bottom to find there any longer.   But these two?     Here’s the thing: to me, Superman should visually be a character that you…  Read More…

“…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…

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!

“Run Scared And You End Up Running From Yourself.” COMICS! Sometimes A Sunday Morning Is The Last Thing You’d Think To Compare Him to!

John Kane

Carlos Ezquerra. Alan Hebden. Major Eazy. Major Eazy by Carlos Ezquerra 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…

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…

“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

A world of Abhay magic awaits you below this post. So scroll on down! Me, I’m trying this writing thing again. So… Roger Langridge. The Fez. THE FEZ by Roger Langridge Anyway, this…

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.

“I Am The Storm…Returned From The Grave.” COMICS! Sometimes I See How Writing A Bit More Off The Cuff Works Out For Us All!

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…

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…
