“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.

This is a HUGE week! New SAGA, DARK KNIGHT III, CRY HAVOC, BLACK MAGICK, NOWHERE MEN, the return of KARNAK, GANGES and so much more!

Check the cut for the “…more!”

“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…)

The end of February is rapidly approaching, but this week will not go by unnoticed!

New ARCHIE and BITCH PLANET headline a strong week over all!

Check the cut for the rest of the new comics!

“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.

Arriving 2/10/16

Brian Hibbs

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?

Check the cut for the other early spring comics!

“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…

Arriving 4/3/16

Brian Hibbs

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

Anyway, this.

“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.

You know it is a good week when three of the best comics all come out the same day! SAGA, ISLAND and MONSTRESS all make an appearance along with BLACK MAGICK, DEADLY CLASS and the debut of CRY HAVOC from Si Spurrier and Ryan Kelly.

Check the cut for the rest of this weeks comics!

“Like Turds in Rain…” COMICS! Sometimes I Act My Shoe-Size Not My Age.

John Kane

Abhay’s below this, so don’t dilly dally, and certainly don’t shilly shally, go there! Do it NOW! Me, I’m still trying to get regular, so here’s another go at that. There’s a lot of toilet humour in this one. It’s the only industry we have left.

Abhay vs. His To-Read Pile

Abhay Khosla

I haven’t bought comics in some months (October? November?), but I have an out-of-control to-read pile, filled with impulse buys that I have not made much progress on for a very long time.  I had a whole night last night, and worked pretty hard today, so I’m staying home tonight, doing laundry, making pasta, having a quiet evening, and thought I’d try to make a dent in the pile.  Thought I should take breaks and ramble around.  So, you know, just hanging out, reading some comics that came out a while ago, spelling errors, paragraphs that go nowhere, “reviews” that add up to nothing, hemming, hawing, a lack of wit, tedium… FRIDAY NIGHT!  WOOOO!

Arriving 1/20/16

The long missing NOWHERE MEN returns this week! Along with new BATMAN, BATGIRL, plus the all new SILVER SURFER, but still by Dan Slott and Mike Allred!

Check the cut for the rest of the new comics this week!

“I’ve Had Mair Exciting Enemas.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Comics of Tomorrow – TODAY!

John Kane

Hey, I finally realised after eight years of looking at Brian (The Guv’nor) Hibbs’ Shipping Lists that due to a temporal anomaly which baffles the greatest scientific minds of our times, I am able to tell the The Americas about certain comics well in advance of when they are able to read them! Or it might be because they are British comics and it takes a bit of time for them to get distributed. That’s a bit mundane though isn’t it? Temporal anomaly it is! So, below the line I give you The Future – NOW!

“Today Is The First Day Of A Life Of Sacrifice.” MOVIES! Sometimes It Takes Me a Bit To Warm Up.

John Kane

It’s 2016! I don’t know about you but I know that the one thing I really need right now is another year to get through! Nothing quite gets me smilin’ like the feeling I’m starting from scratch all over again. Sisyphus ain’t no mythyphus, Camus! Ugh. What is it with time? It just never stops. Ugh. Time. Double ugh. So, before I pull the covers back over my head, here’s some stuff on movies which you’ve all already seen and made your minds up about. I tried to make it even more useless than that even, but it just wasn’t possible. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
