“See God’s Truth In Loving Action!” COMICS! Sometimes Salmonella Should Be On A Certain Someone’s Mind!

John Kane

I don’t know what happened! I wrote about three whole comics in less than fifty billion words! It won’t happen again. My apologies. I don’t know what I was thinking. I certainly wasn’t thinking about this intro, which is why it’s so weak. Rush politely past it and read on… BLUBBER by Gilbert Hernandez Anyway, this…

“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.  RUN LIKE CRAZY RUN LIKE HELL (Tardi, Manchette) Anyway this…

“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…) BLUBBER by Gilbert Hernandez Anyway, this…

“Thy Opinion Hath Been NOTED, Wrinkled One.” COMICS! Sometimes I Wonder If It’s Gil -BERT or Gil-BEAR! And Then I Just Settle for GODHEAD!

John Kane

In which a vain attempt is made to engage with The Present and some words are written about comics produced during these times known as Modern. In a display of staggering arrogance at no point is any excuse proffered for the extended absence of the author, although he would like it to be known that upon occasion it is necessary for him to work for a living. Would that it were otherwise. BLUBBER by Gilbert Hernandez Anyway, this…

“I Have Got To Be Sure, You Old Poop!” COMICS! Sometimes Democracy Comes Second!

John Kane

Yes! Beat out that rhythm on a drum! Here’s the only comic reviews worth reading on The Internet. No, Not really. No, not really in the mood either but if I don’t put something up They come round and stand outside my windows in silent judgement. Hoopla! Also, don’t forget to Save The Hibbs – HERE! LOVE AND ROCKETS NEW STORIES by Jaime Hernandez Anyway, this…

“…But The Truth Is Probably Just This…” COMICS! Sometimes We Weren’t Worthy!

John Kane

Okay, okay. So I can’t keep that pace up. Back to the old as and when, I’m afraid. Stop cheering, already. Show a little class, huh. Sergio Ponchione. Steve Ditko. Jack Kirby. Wallace Wood. Anyway, this…

Kim Thompson Died a Month and Four Days Ago…

  ((As ever and always my own opinions and speculation follow)) (J_Smitty_ enters a small and darkened room.  The feeling is almost claustrophobic.  He twitches, nervously, almost reflexively as a panel slides back to reveal a small figure barely perceptible and perched on the sill of the opening – cloaked in darkness)   “What have you come to confess?”   “Sir, I only just picked up my first Fantagraphics book at the tender age of 33.”   (The little figure sighs deeply and shifts its weight – testing the heft of something)   “10 hail Kim’s and take this brick with you!”   KLUNK

Wait, What? Ep. 128: Radical Cheek

Giffen doing Kirby in the amazing MOTU: Origin of Hordak one-shot. Delays, delays, delays!  Sorry for ’em–I was out of town for a few days losing money at “The World’s Biggest Little Slot Machine Gouge.”  No complaints on that front, actually — I spent much more time lying by the pool and eating cinnamon rolls the size of my head than I did setting my money on fire and throwing it in the air (metaphorically, mind you: it only felt like that because of the speed with which it disappeared out of my hands) and had really a fine old time overall — but it did get in the way of timely posting of this, our 128th podcast and the…  Read More…

“I Know That Cave!” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Not For The Eyes Of The Vicar!

John Kane

Hello! It is I, and I have some words! The words this week are about an original graphic novel penned by Gilbert Hernandez – Comics’ very own George Clooney-a-like and Living Master of the Form. So, it’s probably a safe bet I liked it. Saved you some time there. For those with time to kill this idiocy continues after the <more!>.

Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in

I mean, if I had just waited 20 minutes to post, I could have done this in the first post, but then Tom has to go and post something from Eric Reynolds… First off, seriously, “Bookscan Analysis as Direct Market Public Service Announcement”? Really? I feel like I’ve been told to get off Tom’s lawn for playing too much… Eric’s comments are wonderful, but I don’t really see that they have much (if anything) to do with anything that I actually WROTE, as opposed, possibly, what people might want to think that I wrote. If someone can point me to anyplace where I’ve represented the BookScan numbers to be anything other than what I say they are — that they…  Read More…
