Diana’s 50 Favorite Moments In Comics

Brian Hibbs

Because all the cool kids are doing it! In no particular order, my 50 favorite moments in comics: 1.

Anyway, post-jump: 50 things I like about comics, with hopefully just the right amount of commentary. 5 Great “Eras” for Publishers DC in the late ’50s, early ’60s: A legacy that’s like the pyramids in Egypt–lovely to look at, but I’m damn glad I…  Read More…
