“Thor Has His Doubts About This One..” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Gruff In The Age of Mjolinir!

John Kane

Here’s some words about a comic with Thor in. Do with them what thou wilt. Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 129: Idol Speculation

Jeff Lester

A nifty piece of fan art from the crazily talented Adam P. Knave. Thank you, Adam! We are back!  To do that thing to your ears that you insist you like!  (Really, you like it? Really?) After the jump — show notes!  That thing I do to your eyes that…maybe is helpful?  Even the way I do it, maybe?  Join us!

“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

Hibbs? Why is HE stinkin’ up the joint?!?!

Brian Hibbs

Hi, it is me, the y’know, original founder of this blog.  You might have noticed I’ve been just a little slack in posting since around Christmas time. The Season soaked up my time, then I started my new consulting business, but mostly, I needed a break from writing reviews.  It happens! I was going to start posting a few weeks ago, but that was the week where Abhay descended out of the blue for a solid week of posts, and I didn’t want to step on his toes. This week, we welcome our newest SavCrit — the artist formerly known as J_Smitty (Yes, eventually every regular commenter will be given a seat in the big chair*), now unveiled as Jordan…  Read More…

“A Tiger Doesn’t Give A Buffalo Warning.” COMICS! Sometimes They aaaAAAIEEEE!!! DAAKEESE MOB!!

John Kane

In the Burmese jungle of 1942 only one thing was more deadly than the Japanese…In the war comics of 1976 only one strip ruled the playground…That thing, that strip was DARKIE’S MOB by Mike Western and John Wagner. COME ON!!! GET SOME!! CAHMMM AHHHNNNNN!!!!

“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 A STUART, Grandpa.” COMICS! Sometimes The Weird Porous Kid Walks It!

John Kane

Here at Savage Towers the UK contingent is experiencing problems with The Haunted Scanner. So, just the covers this time out I’m afraid. Apparently my brain is no longer under warranty so I can’t help the words that accompany the pictures. So here’s a shoddy make-shift Sunday look at some comics. Or you could go outside and play in the snow!

Wait, What? Ep. 100: Year Zero

Jeff Lester

(One of my favorite hundredth issue covers, by Joe Staton and Dick Giordano for DC Comics) I don’t know why, but for a moment there… I was very afraid this episode wouldn’t end up existing?  I think because, you know, you say something is a thing, as opposed to just being business as usual, and the next thing you know there’s a certain nimbus of expectation around it, even if only to yourself?  Sometimes it  seems like that kind of nimbus makes the best kind of target for capricious fate… Anyway, enough of that “and then he tore his eyes out in the fifth act!” musing, join us behind the jump for show notes and celebratory waffles, yes?

“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.

“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:

Wait, What? Ep. 83: As Good As A Feast

Jeff Lester

Hoo boy.  Did not think I was going to make this particular deadline.  I won’t bore you with the blah-blah-blahs, but let’s just say: papa needs a new microphone and he needs one bad.  I apologize in advance for all the not-especially-discreet cracking and popping going on at various points in the background of this.  We are maybe two weeks away from a solution to both it and the mild echo chamber effect that’s afflicted us ever since Graeme managed to transcend this corporeal realm. Buttttttttt, anywayyyyyyy… Gotta keep this short and snappy so lemme just say this:  Wait, What? Ep. 83 is two hours and twenty-seven minutes long, and Graeme and I do not spend all that time trying…  Read More…

Hibbs catches up, sort of — 4/18’s books

Brian Hibbs

Happy 4/20! OK, getting much closer to being “on time”, right there under the jump!

Big and Bad: Hibbs 4/4’s

Brian Hibbs

I know you’d never know it from my Industry-driven posting (seriously? It’s what I DO), but I’ve actually been sick as a dog the last week, and have barely read any comics at all. But I said “I’m back on the horse”, and, barring the two weeks where I couldn’t log on TO post here, I am , I am! So, here’s 3 (or maybe 4) books, below the cut.

Wait, What? Ep. 79.2: Power of Ones

Jeff Lester

Hey, guess who did it wrong? Yeah, I had an incredibly busy Wednesday and it wasn’t until my head hit the pillow that I remembered I’d forgotten to upload this podcast. And create this entry. So, despite my fond reveries about providing extra content and blahblahblahblah, that will probably have to wait until next week because, well, I’m tired and dumb. But I wasn’t (entirely) when Graeme and I talked now comics for our conclusion to Episode 79!  Nope, I was more or less lucid and we reviewed the latest issues of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Faith, Frankenstein, Agent of Shade, Batwoman, and a whole mess of first first issues including Saucer Country, Crossed Badlands, Saga, Avengers Assemble, and…  Read More…

Hibbs says “Heeellllo 3/14’s comics!”

Brian Hibbs

Two weeks in a row, yeah, baybee.

Around the Store in 31 Days: Day Fifteen

Brian Hibbs

The next few days we’ll focus on the “creator” racks, since those are easy to bat out (and I need easy since our bathroom is being remodeled, so I’m living at my parent’s house and have maybe 20 minutes of not-between-customer’s-computer-time each day) We’ve already done the Moore and Wagner shelves, so let’s move on to another one of my favorite writers: Garth Ennis. This one is super-double easy, actually. If I had to pick one SINGLE Garth book to hand you, there’s really only one choice: PREACHER. You’ve got a disillusioned Preacher from Texas, his hit-woman ex girlfriend, and an alcoholic Irish vampire who go on a quest to find God, and to make him answer for the state…  Read More…

Hell: Marvel didn’t need to tell me, on 3/19

Joe McCulloch

War is Hell: First Flight of the Phantom Eagle #1 (of 5): I thought there was something odd about this book the whole time I was reading it. But it wasn’t until I checked the credits box and saw Todd Klein’s name that I realized what was going on: There’s no sound effects in this thing. And the reason that feels odd to me is because prolific Howard Chaykin is doing the drawing, which naturally made me wonder how Klein might handle those famous webs and strings and walls of letters that Ken Bruzenak used to do with Chaykin back in the day, the ones various parties have provided since then. Well, no luck. There’s plenty of possible reasons. This…  Read More…

Only in New York!

Brian Hibbs

Airplane writing on the Alpha-Smart, here (with later editing/linking now that I’m home) I just got back from the NY con (well, the trade show, more accurately – I left back for home on Saturday morning), about which more later. First though, let me tell you my “Only In New York” story…. I got into town on Wednesday, and went to the current restaging of Sweeney Todd that night. To be honest, I generally hate musicals, but I really really like Sweeney. Perhaps it is the dark story, which ends in horror and insanity, without a single bit of redemption – that’s not what musicals are, right? I’ve actually seen Sweeney before on Broadway – when I was…. Hm, 10,…  Read More…

Ennis meets Ben

Brian Hibbs

As promised: a picture of Garth Ennis holding Ben Hibbs hostage for pints of Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout. My understanding is the ransom was delivered promptly and Ben was returned without incident.
