“If We Pull This Off, I’m Gonna Sh*t!” MOVIES! Sometimes I Catch A Flick Or Two!

John Kane

Sorry! I hate the silent times too, but needs must sometimes. Alas, due to circumstances and stuff I haven’t read any comics for weeks. This is no reflection on comics, but it does leave me with little to lighten your lives with. It may well be that absence makes the heart grow fonder but it doesn’t make writing any easier. (Secrets Made Flesh Dept: Not writing is an astonishingly easy habit to get into. Scarily so.) So bear with me as we all endure a warm up about some movies I watched while gormlessley slumped in a chair at various points during the last howdiddly ever long it’s been. I have prefaced each with the best thing my long suffering life partner said about the movie in question. Those are the best bits, but if she thinks she’s getting paid for ‘em she can go whistle.

Under the radar

Brian Hibbs

I am a big fan of Javier Pulido, and you might be too?  So consider this a Public Service Announcement because I own a comic book store and do very little every day than think about how to order comic books, and somehow my brain, as well as the brain’s of my two store managers, didn’t process the fact that Pulido wrote and drew the ninth issue of the otherwise largely-a-waste-of-trees GUARDIANS TEAM-UP.  Star-Lord and Spider-Man, and other guest stars and a really funny bit with a major Marvel organization… and I don’t really want to spoil anything because there was a lot to love in this issue.

There’s an AMAZING three-page sequence, set in a night club, and totally silent (because it is so loud) — here’s just one page of it, and it really show you that Pulido *gets* comics.

Pulido

You’re probably not buying this comic… and I wouldn’t recommend the SERIES (at all), but this one issue?  A must-buy if you like Pulido, or classic Marvel team-up comics (this is really the best issue of MARVEL TEAM-UP I’ve ever read), this baby is for you.  It is really EXCELLENT.

 

The other thing I am oddly liking this week is ULTIMATE END by Bendis and Bagley — this is the best DC “Crisis on Earth n” comic that I’ve read in decades.  But the bit that I really like is subtle and quiet and that’s how each meeting earth has its own font — the “Ultimate Universe” characters with thier mixed-case font, and the… well, it isn’t precisely clear what the non-UU Ultimate characters are from, but they use a more traditional “616” font.  It’s a neat effect.

Lettering

I think ULTIMATE END is a GOOD comic.

As always, what do YOU think?

“Eat The OTHER ONE!” Sometimes I Love The Craft Of Those Who Make Comics About Lovecraft!

John Kane

My patience having finally reached its end with regards the odd susurrations which emanated nightly from the fireplace in the south library, I tasked the scrofulous fool who tends to my needs with the dismantling of said edifice. Within seconds the lumpen oaf had caused to be dislodged a stone possessed of enough heft to crack his simple-minded foot in twain.  Ignoring his repellent and startlingly blasphemous utterances I knelt to seize a now-revealed sheaf of papers adorned with runes and symbols which resisted my understanding even as the lower orders resist cleanliness. Shooing the shambling, nay, hopping, cretin of a manservant from the room I set about the package. And it is those contents which, together with their effects upon my quite febrile mind, I shall now proceed to relate.

“Thy Opinion Hath Been NOTED, Wrinkled One.” COMICS! Sometimes I Wonder If It’s Gil -BERT or Gil-BEAR! And Then I Just Settle for GODHEAD!

John Kane

In which a vain attempt is made to engage with The Present and some words are written about comics produced during these times known as Modern. In a display of staggering arrogance at no point is any excuse proffered for the extended absence of the author, although he would like it to be known that upon occasion it is necessary for him to work for a living. Would that it were otherwise.
