“No WANDERING OFF.” COMICS (and MOVIES)! Sometimes All Other Priorities Are Rescinded!

John Kane

Hello! You can blame this one on a conversation I had at a party. I say party but at my age that’s four men in a suburban living room with some nibbles and tinnies with the conversation always one slurred word away from movies. At that point it’s all about ALIEN from my end of the couch. And so is this huge block of stale drivel. It’s a bit wayward but if you stick with it I do mention comics eventually. Dedicated to the enduring magic of the wrestler, teacher and actor Mr. Brian Glover (1934-1997). Anyway, this…

“The Day Terry Vanished.” COMICS! Sometimes You Should Take Off And Nuke The Idea From Orbit. It’s The Only Way To Be Sure!

John Kane

That’s right, it has been a while! No flies on you, me old mucker. Cringing apologies duly tendered and all that. Just so you don’t think The Savage Critics don’t love you anymore here’s some words about a comic. Anyway, this…

“Don’t Make A Noise Or I’ll Send The Devil A Henchman.” COMICS! Sometimes My Eyes Get A Rough Ride!

John Kane

Content, he said tersely, and spun upon his heel to leave. What? Conan. It’s Conan. It’s always been Conan. So cleave the break asunder and have at it with much vigour. Anyway, this…

“Sometimes I Ride A Horse Too.” COMICS! Sometimes I’m not Bored, I’m Actually Quite Entertained. But Thanks for Asking, Klytus!

John Kane

Oh hey, I wrote about some comics. Wonders never cease do they? By Laming, Parker, Boyd & Bowland Anyway, this…

“The Weaving of Ornate Tapestries Glorifying Our Ancestors and Their Bygone Way of Life.” COMICS! Sometimes I Treat You Like My Local Library And Continue To Patronise You!

John Kane

This week I visited my library and took out and read a recent-ish TPB of some quite old Conan comics, 1982 or thereabouts. Then I tried to put my thoughts about ‘em into what them there clever folks call words. I think it worked out about as well as that usually does for me. Probably a lot less well for you. One thing I did discover was that the Hyborian equivalent of Occam’s Razor was Conan’s Rock: Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 143: The Score

Jeff Lester

Simpsons Alan Moore: Knows it; wishes to settle it. Happy New Year, fellow Whatnauts! Graeme and I are back with another installment of the external manifestation of the constant internal chatter constantly haunting your brain.  After the jump: the link and some hasty show notes written by a dude with a cold trying to get this wrapped so he can take a nap!

“Gara Gara!” COMICS! Sometimes They Are MANGA!

John Kane

Konichiwa! What follows is almost Zen like in the purity of its pointlessness. Unless…unless you are one of the three living people who have not already read these old manga comics. Comics which are now available again in a new series of petite omnibooks. So someone must not have read them, right? C’mon, throw me a rope here! Anyway, this…

“This is Worser Than Washin’ An Elephink!” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Like I’m Shouting This At You While I Run Past!

John Kane

Borag Thung, Earthlets! I have been quiet of late but I rested easy in the knowledge that the delightful Messrs Khosla, McMillan, Lester and Hibbs had been satisfying all your comicy needs to the highest of standards as ever. Not that I was resting you understand. So, practically writing this one as I move towards the door…Anyway, this… David Lapham from The Strain in DARK HORSE PRESENTS  #28

“You Can Only Get In So Many Fights.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Sublime!

John Kane

So, I got a chunk of time and I devoted it to this comic. I hope you enjoy reading this but even more I hope you enjoy the comic in question. Anyway, this…

Them’s Fightin’ Words, Joe Casey.

Jordan Smith

In the absence of the dulcet tones of Mssrs. Jeff and Graeme… It should go without saying that all that follows is my opinion. So, quietly and without much advance hullabaloo Dark Horse Comics made its entry…or rather its re-entry…into the world of Superheroics with Catalyst Comix #1     There’s a lot to recommend this book.  There’s a lot to recommend this series, really.   But, as with all things…a caveat.  

“Do They Still READ In The Future?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Great To Be Rude!

John Kane

It was Half-Term last week hence the silence. Yes, the blessed silence. But now your God has failed you and I am back! It has been quietly suggested that I put on hold my tribute to Charlie Drake and maybe look at some comics this time. So, no actors who were dead before you grew your big teeth this time out. Just comics! Just lovely, lovely comics! But were they lovely? Hmmmmm? Anyway, this… NEXUS by Steve Rude & Mike Baron

“Decency.” COMICS! Sometimes They Do Not Bring Me Out In Hives!

John Kane

Look, we all know that last time John read some comics released this century it all got a bit hairy. John would like to point out that this was not out of malice, low blood sugar, jealousy, his piles flaring up or sunspot activity. No, difficult as it may be to believe, John maintains it was the result of those comics not actually being all that good. Think of it as being a bit like John was showing you that sometimes he and Comics would argue but it didn’t mean they didn’t love each other any less and it certainly wasn’t your fault. John can see why Doctor Doom talks like this – it’s fun. Anyway, this… Due to the lack…  Read More…

“I’m Hip.” COMICS! Sometimes The Best Diet Is Revenge!

John Kane

Yes! Just in time for Christmas! Howard Victor Chaykin, Ken Bruzenak and Jesus Arbuto team up to present a breezy paced filthy mouthed corpse strewn comedy of bullshit and revenge in a book of which I said, “It’s okay, you know. I liked it. I’m not mad about it but I’m glad I have it.” More incisive criticism, impotent invective against the new fangled medium of Television and a distinct lack of editing skills or even self awareness after the break!

“Why Is That Puppet’s Bosom EXPOSED?” COMICS! Sometimes Corben Endures!

John Kane

Good morrow! It is I, the man who skipped a week without notice! I’m sure your rancour and anger have abated somewhat. If indeed they ever existed. Perhaps it was a feeling more akin to relief. As when the drowning man releases that last bubble of air and watches it rise unhurriedly to the surface through clouded but resigned and unpanicked eyes. No, my American friends, I have no idea what I’m talking about as – Christmas? Getting in the way of your free content it appears.  Anyway, this…

“…A Cascade Of Wasps Attacked the Furry Monster!” COMICS! Sometimes You Worry About The Men Who Made Them!

John Kane

That’s right I read some comics. Some of them were old and some of them were new and one of them wasn’t really a comic at all. But only one of them made me think it was a miracle anyone was actually conceived in the ’50s. Yes, paging Dr. Subtext! Outbreak of ’50s gynophobia! But then to nostalgic old fools like me ’50s gynophobia is arguably the finest gynophobia of all! Anyway, this…

“Let ‘Em Loose, Bobo!” COMICS! Sometimes They May Arouse The Proles!

John Kane

How goes the day! I guess after that Olympics Opening Ceremony I should just assure all our American friends, particularly your President, that the National Health Service doesn’t actually mean that you have a socialist nation 3,000 miles off the coast of America. And, no, if you let this stand all of Europe isn’t going to go next in a kind of domino effect. You guys are so ansty! Connor Willumson/Jason Latour (art/words) I read some comics and then did the words thing. You can do the reading bit if you like, if there’s nowt on the box.

“Or Is There ANOTHER Way?” COMICS! Sometimes The Carny Winds Up In The Fridge!

John Kane

Sorry about that interruption in the weekly magic of me but I’m back now! What’s that? Art by Bernie Wrightson with words by Bruce Jones. Man, you people are brutal. Talking about a horror comic after the break…

“No! It’s ANGRY!” COMICS! Sometimes They Bow Before The King (Of R’n’R).

John Kane

Good Day! Jolly Good Day! Over here we are shortly to be having a Jubilee shindig! You don’t get one so I gave you this instead. It’s all over the bally shop but some of it is about comics. You have been warned and so my hands are clean but look at the state of your fingernails!

“A Moi La Légion!” COMICS! Sometimes I Have Too Much Sun!

John Kane

Greetings! It has been sunny in England for more than three consecutive days. This means that the entire nation is required by Law to sit outside until their skins glow like pink suns and crack like dry riverbeds in Texan heat. So I have been doing that. This means I didn’t read many comics and when I wrote about them the fact that my brain had been lightly boiled in its own juices didn’t seem to have a beneficial effect on my thought processes or judgement. But, hey, I made my deadline! I made it, Ma! I’m a hack!

“Let Him Be A Child A Little Longer.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Diverse!

John Kane

Hey, the postman finally turned up. I guess the hostiles must have been restless out there in the Badlands or something. Anyway, he may not have rung twice but he did drop off a box of comics. Here’s me going on about some of them after the break:

“It Has A HEART And A MIND!” Comics! Sometimes They Are Dissolute.

John Kane

Come Sir, or Madam, set yourself beside this hearth and join me in a snifter as we peruse a periodical of low-repute and learn of a very naughty home, a most naughty home indeed!
