That old tyme music: Hibbs’ blast from the past

I love Harris Miller II, attorney to the comics stars.

Upon seeing my “reintroduction” to the site, he sent me this email. Obviously, from the intro, this isn’t the FIRST Savage Critic, but here’s one Harris archived from 10/6/1993! So, it’s been at least 14 years…

Don’t try to email me at that address below (if it survives posting) — haven’t used it since the end of the 20th century!

Look how much longer the ratings list was back then!!!!

I like my new format better though….

Thanks, Harris!!!!

Subject: The Savage Critic 10/6:

Because YOU demanded it! The exciting, no-holds-barred return of the
Savage critic, featuring the best one word review column in town! We’ll
start this week with part 2 of the 9/29 shipment, but first, let’s put thel
rating system in perspective. In ascending order:

Unreadable
Crap
Terrible
Awful
Sucks
Thud
Yawn
Eh
O.K.
Good
Very Good
Excellent

One special “rating” that doesn’t fit on the chart: Don’t care.
This is reserved for subject matter that I couldn’t care less about or am
unqualified to judge. Additionally humor comics will be judged as “funny”
or “not Funny”

Other superlatives are more or less equal to excellent.

Also, I reserve the right to change or add to the ratings at anytime,
for any reason. You’ll just have to muddle along.

I will not personally spend my money on any book rated merely good or
lower.

Onto the final batch from last week:

Dances with Demons #3: O.K.
Blazing Combat: Vietnam & Korea #2: Eh
Vietnam Journal: Khe Sanh #3: Eh
Days of Wrath #2: Eh
Death’s Head II #12: Awful
Incomplete Death’s Head #11: Crap
Genetix #2: Unreadable crap
Killpower #3: Unreadable Crap
Chiller #1: Good, but not worth $7.95 for an incomplete story
Dinosaurs for Hire #8: Funny
Ferret #5: Terrible
Protectors #13: Terrible
Tor #4: Good
Go Die: O.K.
Femforce #65: Crap
Good Girl Art Quarterly #13: Crap
Flare #13: Unreadable
Tigress #6: Unreadable
Murcielaga she-bat #3: Crap
Elfquest: Blood of 10 chiefs #2: Good
Hugo Tate: O, America: Very Good
Jason Goes to hell #2: Unreadable crap
Jurrasic Park #4: O.K.
Kip #3: Awful
Lost Laughter #3: Good
Meteor Man #4: Terrible
Post Brothers #33: Very Good
Ninja High/Speed Racer #1: O.K.
Speed Racer w/ Ninja High #2: O.K.
Zillion #1: Crap
TekWorld #15: Terrible
Vixen Wars #5: Unreadable crap
Xenotech #1: Yawn
Mia Farrow-Woody Allen Story: Unreadable crap
Raven #1: thud
Wandering Star #3: good

That covers *every* non-reprint, or children’s comic that came into
my store on 9/29. Let’s move on to the first half of 10/6:

Team Titans #14: Awful
Darkstars #14: Awful
Nightstalkers #14: Yawn
Guy Gardner #14: Yawn
Kamandi #6: Thud
JLI #58: Sucks
Eudaemon #2: O.K.
Negative Burn #3: Good (if a little uneven)
Children of the Voyager #4: Very good
Shadowman #21: O.K.
HArbinger #24: Yawn
Magnus #31: Eh
Hard Corps #13: Yawn
X-O #23: O.K.
Deadpool #4: Thud
What if? #55: O.K.
Action #693: good
Warriors of Plasm #3: Crap
FF #382: Crap
Spidey 2099 #14: O.K.
Freex #3: awful
Hardcase #4: Good
Sludge #1: Very Good
(W/ Rune #A: Eh)
The extra 55 cents for 3 pages of BWS, 1 page of Magnor, and more
(effectively) ads *is* a supreme burn. 3 pages just don’t cut it – this
wasn’t even a *taste*. And FIVE dollars for shipping the “free” comics you
get for buying ELEVEN others is a monumental ripoff.

Saint Sinner #3: Unreadable
Lethal Foes of Spidey #3: Crap
Night Thrasher #4: Crap
Static #6: Very Good
JL Task Force #6: Eh
Ren & Stimpy #13: Funny
Cable #5: Eh
Warlock Chronicles #6: Crap
Showcase #11: Good
Titans #103: Unreadable
Robin #1: Good
Catwoman #4: O.K.
X-Men Annual #2: Eh.
Batman & Superman Magazine #2 (comics): Way excellent
(the Rest): Don’t care
Law Dog #7: Very good
Monster Menace #1: Cool
Batman Adventures #14: Excellent (“The Goy Wonder”, indeed!)
Spawn #14: Very Good
Hitchhiker’s Guide #1: Good adaptation
Wolverine: Killing: Excellent
Animal Man #65: Very Good
Swamp Thing #137: Stupefyingly terrible
Hellblazer #71: Excellent
Batman/Houdini: Devil’s workshop: Excellent
The Upturned Stone HC: Excellent

That’s it for now — more as I get to it (todays’ batch represents 6
and a half hours of my time!)

That was my opinion, now what’s yours?

Brian
