“Later, Jeef Cooked The Best Northern Italian-Style Dinner Ever.” COMICS! Sometimes it’s Goodbye, Mr Chitts!

John Kane

To celebrate the release of Batman vs Superman: Collateral Damage and also the appearance of The Punisher on Daredevil I look up at the corner of my living room and wonder if that’s dust or a cobweb. Deciding it’s just a shadow, I galvanize myself and consider a book by Gilbert Hernandez about a woman who kills zombies in the future. ‘Cos I’m dead classy, pal.

The mechanical problems with DC’s “Rebirth” (Tilting #249)

Brian Hibbs

Seven major concerns, two pieces of good news about DC’s “Rebirth”, and more from my notes from ComicsPRO’s annual meeting — available at Comic Book Resources.  Thoughts?

(Yeah, the Monday posting was a surprise to me as well)

“I Can’t DO This Anymore.” COMICS! Sometimes I Wish I Had A Hammer Too.

John Kane

In which I look at a Batman comic so lacking in self-awareness it unknowingly reviews itself:

But I still went on about it nevertheless.

“…Spring-Heeled Jack, The Duke of Clarence, Walter Sickert, Arthur Askey…” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Full English.

John Kane

In which I sulkily refuse to acknowledge my recent absence (ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies) and just go straight into talking about a comic about an old man who fills his days by chuntering incessantly about nonsense to a disinterested and increasingly uncomfortable audience in the low single digits. I can’t imagine what attracted me to it.

“Would You Like A Waffle With Chestnut Butter?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Safer In The Asylum.

John Kane

Bonjour mesdames et messieurs! Une tasse de thé sans lait, veuillez. Beaucoup merde! Or for those who lack the class I has, and thus do not speak the language of The French: This week John read a graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, who is not Jacques Tati but who is French. Luckily someone had the foresight to translate the book into The Beautiful Tongue or else this would have been a bit of a nonstarter.  You know, what with John being an enormous monolingual xenophobe and all.

“I Fail To See What’s So Remarkable About Two Robots Dancing.” COMICS! Sometimes I’ll Need To See Some ID Before You Go Any Further, Sunshine.

John Kane

This time out I look at 2000AD yet again, but you can tell I’m getting a bit worn down. Not because you’re perceptive, but because I flat out say so. Then in an attempt to pep things up a bit I take a look at  a one man anthology by the one man affront to all that’s rational! Men want to be him, women want to be with him, and the FBI just plain want him! It’s that loveable scamp, the part-time Cher impersonator and full-time living colossus of Comics, Mr. Gilbert “Betty” Hernandez. And this wretched creature on the end of my critical stick is BLUBBER #2.  (Strictly no kids past the MORE…)

“Oh, Betty!” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Doctor Who And The Pub Made of Haunted Wood!

John Kane

Just for a change I thought I’d look at an Original Graphic Novel rather than a British anthology comic featuring a poo eating robot that talks more sense than most public figures. Naturally, I loaded the dice by picking one by one of my favourite writers working with an artist whose work I have much fondness for. And Michael Easton. Guess how well that worked out for everyone.

Yummy Yummy Abhay!

Brian Hibbs

You probably don’t really need me linking to THE COMICS JOURNAL for you, but in case you haven’t seen it, Abhay has an epic threefour-part journey through Comics 2015 that is a very worthwhile read — I laughed out loud at least at four separate occasions, and I am one jaded-ass fucker.

Part One: http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-i/

Part Two:  http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-ii/

Part Three: http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-iii/

Part Four: Up tomorrow, dumb Brian.  But…. I bet you might be able to guess the URL….

 

Go read, and thank me later!

“Let’s All Send Him Our Love.” COMICS! Sometimes I Suspect My Chakras Are Stunted.

John Kane

Anthologies don’t sell! Yet people keep publishing them and I keep buying them. Here are some words about three anthologies I read this week.

Without a doubt the book this week is new LOVE & ROCKETS, but BATMAN, DESCENDER, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, MS. MARVEL and LOW are nothing to scoff at either, right?

“He Thought He Could Forget The Past. He was Wrong.” COMICS! Sometimes I Find A whole New Way To Bore You!

John Kane

Of late I’ve been a regular Chatty Cathy and no mistake, so as a change of pace I’ve scanned in some House Ads which ran in DC Comics from (and it’s totally arbitrary this) March 1989 to August 1990. I always enjoy looking at these things when I dig out my back issues; they remind me of stuff I have tucked away (and even sometimes forgotten), or nudge me about stuff I mean to pick up at some point before…I come to my senses and start acting my age. Sometimes they just make me shake my head and wonder how that turned out for everyone. Heck, it’s just fun looking at them, basically, and I hope you share my fascination…

Last week is a difficult show to out do, but this week has a fair shot at standing on it’s own!

New BATGIRL, A-FORCE and GIANT DAYS plus the second issue of one of the best new series in awhile AMAZING FOREST and the debut of a new entry in the 8HOUSE world from Emma Rios with MIRROR.

Check the cut for all the new February comics!

“We’re JUDGES – We Can Do Any Damn Thing We WANT.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Clear Cut Case of Rather You Than Me, Dear.

John Kane

I only had time to write about one comic this time. Sorry. But do please feel free to all club together and make me independently wealthy. I’ll probably manage, oooh, three comics then. Gee, thanks for thinking about it, anyway. This time I continue to big up The Home Side by looking at the very latest issue of 2000AD. It might only be one comic, but it’s a fresh ‘un! Hmm, still breathing so it is!

JUDGE DREDD by Sexton, Carroll, O’Grady & Parkhouse

“Droids Don’t Knock.” COMICS! Sometimes The Darkest Judge of All Is Judge Critic!

John Kane

Not wishing to set a precedent here but in response to a reader comment I look at a volume of IDW’s JUDGE DREDD. There’s little, if any, toilet humour in this one. I’ve got all that out of my system (tee hee!) But if you like icy disdain then bring your skates because we’re doing figure eights! Or maybe I liked it. Ha, Ha, just kidding.
