“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

“I Did My Bit To Make It Work, With Mixed Results, Up And Down, Good And Mediocre…” PEOPLE! Sometimes Genius Is Modest To A Fault!

John Kane

Sometimes I read books about the people who make comics. These two books were about one man: Alex Toth. Now, obviously Alex Toth doesn’t deserve two books. No, he deserves three at least. But only two have come out yet so here’s what happened when I read them and then tried to write about them. Anyway, this…

“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…

“There’s A Hairy Man Running At…!” COMICS! Sometimes It Takes A Corben To Catch A Monster!

John Kane

Blah-blah more days to Hallowe’en! Sil-VER Sham-ROCK! (AKA Season of The Jeff!) Here’s some stuff about a monster comic. I was going to put it up on Hallowe’en but I’ll be busy going from door to door with my son begging from strangers. That being pretty much the only growth industry there is over here, so best to prepare him early! Life skillz! Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 104: Zero Point Now

Jeff Lester

John Byrne really, uh, bringing it in Alpha Flight #6 Yeah, that’s….mmm, boy!  Good ol’ John Byrne, amirite? Anyhoo… the adventure that are the shownotes for our podcast: right behind the jump!

When Reporters Repeat

Brian Hibbs

So, the Dave Sim / IDW press release went out wide, and several sources are specifically reporting the story as though this means that IDW is publishing a paper collection of Cerebus comics. I do not think this is correct.  In fact, I’m sure it isn’t. Read the release again, slowly — this HAS to be for a DVD (?) collection of  the digital files, not a print book. (Edit: they’ve changed the title at AMOC, indicting it IS a DVD. Toldja!) Heidi also pitches it as being “rare and expensive” from “IDW Limited”, which might be one component of it — but given that “IDW Limited” items are NOT sold in stores, and the rest of the release talks…  Read More…

“Bleedhounds Kin Find Anythin’!” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Assorted!

John Kane

So, you know how it should go: 1) Read comics 2) Think about comics  3) Write about comics 4) Post writing 5) Fret about having upset someone. Rinse and repeat. Well I did 1) and forgot to do 2) so that shivved 3), 4) and 5) right in the kidneys didn’t it? So all you get is what I read last night. I’ll try and do better next time. Also: Don’t forget the 100TH PODCAST BY GRAEME MCMILLAN and JEFF LESTER is due THIS WEEK! It will be MONUMENTAL! It will be ASTOUNDING! It will be the BEST THING EVER! No pressure, guys!

“I Got A Heart Like Nobody’s Bizness!” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Timeless Magic!

John Kane

Now I don’t know about you but I needed a bit of a larf recently. And the most larfs I had lately were courtesy of these comics. So I thought I’d tell you about them and then you could go and buy them and have a larf too. It’s called The Cycle of Larf! Arf! Arf! No, wait, these are good books, honest! Oh, be like that then.

“It Is Not The FIRST TIME This Has Happened.” COMICS! Sometimes They Are Hot Off The Griddle!

John Kane

Hey old people, remember Sunday evening when you were a kid?: Urrrrrhhhh! Let’s take the Sunday Blues away with some piffle about our four colour floppy friends! COMICS!!!

“I don’t know about the cat.” Comics! Sometimes they are a bit creepy!

John Kane

Hey, I read some comics and then I wrote about them in a hot new style I like to call “cack-handed”. If you aren’t doing anything else this weekend, sugar rush, you might want to get your hands  all cacky with me?

I always thought they came from the planet Kling: Graeme on another 4/25 book.

These are the following things that I think about when someone says the word “Klingon” to me: * Funny foreheads. * Michael Dorn manages to make a career out of frowning. * Tribbles. * All of those very dull episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine where they talked about Klingon culture and things were very dark and they talk about “honor” a lot. * Please stop saying the word “Klingon”. This is something that I don’t think about when someone says the word “Klingon” to me: * The need for a five-issue miniseries about Klingons published by IDW, especially a miniseries that has a Klingon-language variant of the first issue. Do you see how that…  Read More…
