Why I Hate The Comics Industry, Part 8756412

Brian Hibbs

SENSATION COMICS #3 is a pretty great comic — it’s the kind of comic you could give to a 10 year old girl, or her 45 year old hipster mother equally.  It is kind of exactly the kind of WW comic that a whole swath of people really really want right now, because empowering but also really really cute.  I can absolutely sell this comic to a LOT of folks. Except for the barrier they put in my way…. Come under the cut and I will explain….

Wait, What? Ep. 123: Assault Monitors

Jeff Lester

From the amazing Kirby-written, Kirby-drawn finale to the first Super Powers miniseries. See, everyone? I don’t blow every deadline, just some of the deadlines. Anyway, we’re back (although SPOILER: we’re off next week again) with not quite two hours of Kirby talk, Ewing talk, and…three year old niece talk?  Um, I’m afraid the answer to all of those is: YES.  Join us after the jump for show notes, why don’t you?

“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.

“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!>.

Oh Good, Another Year. COMICS! 2012 The Year I Really Didn’t Pay Attention!

John Kane

I do so hope all across the globe had a happy holiday and got stuff and ate stuff and watched stuff and generally did stuff where stuff was involved. I did, which is why I’ve been AWOL so sorries and all that but here’s my wrap up for 2012. A year I paid little attention to while it was going on, made no notes and am now left floundering for stuff to write! Appetising, non? Anyway it’s Saturday night and I’ve places to be, people to see, y’know how it is. Yes, I am lying. This is all I have. Anyway, let’s see how this goes. My money’s on – badly.

Wait, What? Ep. 101: Little Shavers

Jeff Lester

Kirby. Kubrick. 2001. 2001 for Episode 101?  I don’t think it’s deliberate, but knowing Mr. McMillan, I wouldn’t entirely rule it out either. After the jump:  Welcome to a new age of… Show notes!

Better than never: Hibbs on 6/27

As far as I am concerned, this isn’t “last week’s comics” until I open the front door of the store on Wednesday!
