“I’ve Tasted SHOES With More Flavour.” COMICS! Sometimes Despite It Being Summer I Still Sit Here And Write This Rhubarb!

John Kane

As tradition dictates I read some comics and then wrote about them. However, I feel it incumbent upon me to direct your gaze further down the page where two other people have done some real writing. Don’t worry there’s none of that below this cut; consistency is key! By Scioli & Barber Anyway, this…

“Working Together In The Name Of The Common Good…” COMICS! Sometimes Creators Don’t Get To Pick Their Fans! (Ever, Actually. Now I think About It.)

John Kane

It’s a Skip Week! (Booo!) So let’s see what falls out of my head (Yay!). Checking the Savage Critic’s mail bag I see several of you may have contacted me expressing intense distress that I have yet to tell you how 2013 panned out for Howard Victor Chaykin.  It was definitely several or none. It’s so hard to remember these things. So, hedging my bets I’ll tell you anyway…

“DIMINISHING Your Enemy DOESN’T defeat Him.” COMICS! Sometimes Ken’s Hair is Brushed And Parted!

John Kane

So, the nights are drawing in and we’ve had a full dance card over here what with begging sweets from strangers, burning effigies and firing explosives into the sky. Inbetween all that I read some comics and wrote about them. I did it as and when, so I’ve just put this together now from scraps and I can’t even remember writing most of it. Hopefully you won’t remember reading it. Anyway, this…

“…Workers Killing Each Other In The Name Of Some Plutocrat’s Lies.” COMICS! Sometimes They Come Back!

John Kane

My Internet is back up! Got no time for smalltalk. Who knows how long this window of technical opportunity will stay open? So, hello, my name’s John and I wrote too many words about two comics and I hope you have fun. A boy can hope, right? So, let the merrymaking commence! Anyway, this…

“spilf!” Comics! Sometimes They Are Probably Not Everybody’s Cup of Tea!

John Kane

And now, as demanded by literally nobody at all, I look at BLACK KISS 2 by Howard Victor Chaykin. No, no need to thank me. Your smiles are reward enough. Of course you’ll only be clicking on MORE! if you are Over 18 years of age. I can trust you, can’t I? Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 130: Friendly Neighborhood Peaslingers

Jeff Lester

Mmmm, delicious tail… From Batman, Inc. #13, art by Chris Burnham Hey, we are back! Like, backity-back! Like, two full hours of back! Back like Baby’s Got Back! Back, like Back to the Future! Like The Front is back! Like Orange is The New Back! Like Back That Azz Up is back, but with more of a later Outkast-influenced Atlanta sound! Wikipedia! Posterior! Glutes!  Back! After the jump: show notes…are back! Back like [etc., etc.]

“I’m Regarding This As My First Major Adult Work. Period.” COMICS! Sometimes We All Salute The Same Flagg!

John Kane

In 1983 Howard Victor Chaykin unleashed American Flagg! on the world. For the first 30 issues it was pretty much the best genre comic I was reading. VERY GOOD! it was. Then Howard Victor Chaykin wandered off and…well, er, the second volume was pretty entertaining. Here’s a visual celebration of the magic of the man known only as Howard Victor Chaykin.  This one’s all about the visuals. The quicker studies amongst you will note that there’s a couple of issues missing. Hey, I’m 3,000 miles away! I did my best! Anyway, this…

“…I Won’t Insult You By Quoting Neitzsche.” COMICS! Sometimes Chaykin Is Your Higher Power!

John Kane

Hey, it’s another version of Iron Man‘s origin but with a more realistic approach to booze abusing! So it’s over to the Master of The Mai-Tai hissownself Mr. Howard Victor Chaykin, with an assist from Mr. Gerald Parel, to bring all the short term memory loss, vomiting, visuo-spatial impairments, erectile dysfunction and renal failure fans of The Inebriated Iron Man demand! Anyway, this…

“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

“Seems I’ve spent the better part of my life amongst the dead.” PEOPLE! Sometimes They Are Uxorious! (Peter Cushing!)

John Kane

Sunday 26th May 2013 marks a very special occasion. Yes, 100 years ago on that day Peter Wilton Cushing OBE (26 May 1913 – 11 August 1994) was born. Look, he’s even on a bloody stamp! Happy Centenary, Peter Cushing! The Beast Must Die (Amicus,1974) Anyway, this…

“…Achieving Liberal Ends By Fascist Means.” COMICS! Sometimes They Fight To Make Men Free!

John Kane

…and it stank like it something had crawled up it and died! What? I’m on? That’s a bit ahead of schedule. Caught me on the hop a bit there, let’s see what we can do. Hold on…let me check my pockets…right! Harumph! This’ll have to do. Here goes. Welcome, International Comrades! In this exciting post I will be treating the eyes of all to the sight of many comic covers. Yes! These coruscating covers adorned the 1982-4 run of BLACKHAWK; a run written by Mark Evanier and drawn by Dan Spiegle with back ups from a heavenly host of talents. Pleasure for all viewers ensured as I have mastered the scanner! Technology is yet servant to the flesh! Yes! So,…  Read More…

“Your Uniform Makes You An Erotic SHADOW..” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Family Matter!

John Kane

Firstly, fans of Jog’s fine writing on the works of Howard Victor Chaykin are directed HERE. Everyone else gets this. No, there are no refunds. Stop asking me that. Anyway, this… “Mrs Eisenmann, you’re trying to seduce me.”

Wait, What? Ep. 113: Technically Difficult

Jeff Lester

A page from Shotaro Ishinomori’s Kikaider, which we didn’t even discuss this week but which I kinda adore, nonetheless… ATTENTION, ATTENTION, NEXT WEEK WILL BE A SKIP WEEK FOR THE PODCAST.  NEXT WAIT IS A WEEK, WHAT? SKIPCAST! You may not care.  In fact, you may be relieved but either way, Graeme and I will not be talking one another’s ear off this week so there won’t be anything for you to listen to from us next week.  Maybe you can get out of the house for a bit?  Go for a walk?  Realize that although it’s probably too late to do that “52 books  in 52 weeks” you promised, you can maybe still get in 48 in 48 weeks?…  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!

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.

“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!

“I Tried Everything Else.” COMICS! Sometimes Chaykin’s Awake!!!

John Kane

Hopefully you all made it through any storms okay, my American friends! If you did I’ve got some rubbish about comics for ya. Content! You might not want it, you might not like it but it’s there!

“You’re Wrong. I’m Not STRONG.” COMICS! Sometimes Legends Are Involved!

John Kane

Merciful Minerva! It’s a content-pocalypse here at The Savage Critics! Below this there’s Amazing Abhay taking a comic by the throat in his talented teeth and shaking it until its neck snaps. Beneath that there’s Gentle Jeff Lester using duct tape, tact and sheer pluck to bring you, via technology, not only the cheapest comics…but the best comics! Beneath that there’s Bewildered Brian Hibbs vs. online journalism! Bang-on Brian Hibbs cracking the heads of several  cape comics together was also a thing that occurred! As ever, earlier in the week the best Commenters in any seven dimensions you care to mention took on the Shipping List and, of course, Gentle Jeff and Garrulous Graeme’s audio bliss in Podcast form remains…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 102: Age of Chance

Jeff Lester

From the thirteenth issue of Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, assembled by Miguel Corti. The episode–she is long! (Just a bit over two hours and forty minutes, in fact.) The show notes–they are extensive! So join me after the jump for both, and a bit more about Watchmen issue #13!

“Clean Living.” PEOPLE! Sometimes It’s 62 Years of Howard Victor Chaykin!

John Kane

Just a quick Happy Birthday to Howard Victor Chaykin who is 62 years of age this day! Cheers! A slightly cheekier Birthday greeting below the break.

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?
