“They’ve Set Fire To The Universe!! Look Out! LOOK OUT!” COMICS! Sometimes We Celebrate The Arrival On Earth of Jack Kirby!!

John Kane

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! The time of the year when we celebrate the eternal magic of the man born on this day in 1917 as Jacob Kurtzberg; a man more commonly known to all as Jack Kirby. I’ll shut my fat yapper now because this is his day and so without any further ado here are a selection of “cosmic”!!! images that just boggle my mind every time I see ‘em. Many happy returns then to the man whose physical form has gone but whose genius transcends mortality. KIRBY!!! Anyway, this…

“Nah, Son. This Is On ALL of Us.” COMICS! Sometimes If This Superhero Thing Doesn’t Work Out They Could Always Moonlight As A White Goods Delivery Firm!

John Kane

Due to popular demand what follows is about a new(ish) series and it’s also mercifully brief! Who says we here at The Savage Critics don’t listen? Well, they’re right. But we thought you’d find the illusion comforting. 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…

“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. 143: The Score

Jeff Lester

Simpsons Alan Moore: Knows it; wishes to settle it. Happy New Year, fellow Whatnauts! Graeme and I are back with another installment of the external manifestation of the constant internal chatter constantly haunting your brain.  After the jump: the link and some hasty show notes written by a dude with a cold trying to get this wrapped so he can take a nap!

“Why Did You Turn Us From Pets Into Slaves?” COMICS! Sometimes It Is Christmas On The Planet of The Apes (Part 4)

John Kane

Believe you me when I say I share your relief as we thunder into the fourth and final part of what people as far away as the chair next to me are calling a Planet of The Apes Weekly gallery! Merry Christmas! Ho ho ho! Anyway, this…

“Because I Loathe Bananas!” COMICS! Sometimes It Is Christmas On The Planet of The Apes (Part 3)

John Kane

“Beware the beast Man, for he is the Content’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he scans for the attention of strangers during Internet lulls. Yea, he will politely ask his work-mate to borrow his work-mate’s Planet of The Apes Weekly collection. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will spend most of his time washing, cleaning and generally running about to little result before finally sitting and staring dully into the far distance. Shun him; drive him back into his new-build lair, for he is the harbinger of death.” Thus spaketh The Lawgiver. And so Part Three of the Planet of The Apes Weekly cover gallery begins: Anyway, this…

“What The Hell Would I Have To Say To A Gorilla?!?” COMICS! Sometimes It Is Christmas On The Planet of The Apes (Part 2)

John Kane

Well, Christmas The Holidays are almost upon us! Now, if you do knock back the old grape juice plus please refrain from driving. This isn’t the Nineteen Seventies, you know! Although you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise as we plummet into the second part of our gallery of Planet of The Apes Weekly (very old but VERY GOOD!) covers. It ain’t Nostalgia, it’s History. (Okay, it’s nostalgia). BONUS**BONUS***: Fool your friends! Baffle your enemies! Be hunted by the Government and shot in a ship yard with our Amazing Like-Life Ape Mask! (Never use scissors unless supervised by an adult.) Anyway, this…

“…There Must be A Creature Superior To Man.” (Slight Reprise) COMICS! Sometimes It Is Christmas On The Planet of The Apes!

John Kane

It is with no small amount of shame that I note it has been over a year(!) since I promised to take a look at Planet of The Apes Weekly. Um. Prizes for the best excuses! Er, I mean reasons. Look, we’re all adults so let’s all just put it behind us and move on. As a special Christmas Treat, and as a small act of atonement, please find the covers to the first 31 issues of Planet of The Apes Weekly. If you like ‘em I’ll do some more. And, okay, we’ll see what we can do about, y’know, going on about the contents in word form. No promises, mind. Special BONUS: from hereonin I (mostly) shut my mad…  Read More…

“Dig It, Fangs–” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Unsteady Dead!

John Kane

It’s a Skip Week! Oh, oh, the horror! So let’s take your mind off it and hurriedly look at some comics which originally appeared some forty one years back. Way back, back when a lady entering a pub unaccompanied would be burned as a witch. And rightly so! Look, it was either this or I did a Best Comics of 2013 like everyone and their mother, but you know what The Best Comics of 2013 are? Whatever you think they are! Merry Christmas! Don’t worry, I try and get serious later. That’s usually quite funny isn’t it; like a chimp baking or something? So, Tomb of Dracula! Anyway, this…

Wait, What? Ep. 137: Zombook Club!

Jeff Lester

This and Battling Boy are the subjects of today’s book club. Go pick up copies and argue along! Greetings from the Cosmic Habitrail! (That is how Flash now gets from one dimension to the next, right?) Due to an overabundance of running around and an underabundance of organizational skills, I have very, very brief show notes for Episode 137, our Book Club edition. but! I do also have a two hour long podcast for you, so… <nudge, nudge>. Eh? Eh? After the jump…both of those things!

“…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…

“…Not As A Mystery–But As A MAN!” COMICS! Sometimes The King Knew The Score!

John Kane

Celebrate your Dad, come on! (Let’s Celebrate!). Smooth segues be damned on this, The Day of The Father; didjya know that Jack Kirby was also a Father? Like all Fathers Jack Kirby knew of “The Task” but only Jack Kirby dared speak of it. The final, greatest “task” of any Father; when he must remove the bomb from his child’s head while waving him or her off into “The Future“, remaining behind to be blown up in their stead. Wait, maybe it was a metaphor! Or maybe I just wanted to post some Jack Kirby covers because, hey, today I get celebrated (COME ON!!!) so bit busy, yeah?  Maybe more substantial content later? J_Smitty did some reviews one post down…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 119: Watching You

Jeff Lester

Yup, we talk about Action Comics #18!  And I think…we even have stuff to say? Maybe, kinda? Behind the jump: show notes annotating the podcast commenting on the industry having one of its craziest weeks ever!  Action verbs! Jazz hands! Psychedelic Superman!

Wait, What? Ep. 118: Skypenet Techpocalypse

Jeff Lester

Why, yes, Stevie Wonder performing Superstition on Sesame Street is indeed relevant to this week’s podcast, thanks for asking! After the jump, somewhat hasty show notes for our somewhat hasty episode (less than two hours?  What has happened to us?)

“Thrill Someone You Love…” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Other Stuff That Catches The Eye!

John Kane

Well, I finally got The Haunted Scanner working so naturally I diddled and faffed around with it a bit. Put it through its paces and all that. Rather than have that time be classed as wasted I thought I’d share with you, the peoples of the World, some of the neglected visual delights within a bunch of 1971/1972 Marvel Comics. Adverts, I’m talking about adverts there. Look, it’s probably better than you fear but not as good as you hope. I can’t say fairer than that. So let’s skip back to the dawn of the 1970s via a scanner and some stapled and browning paper. In a way, it’s a kind of time machine. Maybe. Oh, it’s not making it…  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. 110: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Jeff Lester

One of the two delightful pieces of art made for us by the impressively talented Garrett Berner (a.k.a. The Mighty Gar) It’s our last podcast of the year!  Yes, after this two hour and ten minute Whatstravaganza, you get a nice two week vacation from our wee voices nattering on and on, answering your questions, picking apart your comics.  Finally!  Some peace and quiet for your holidays!  Doesn’t that sound pleasant? Anyway…after the jump!  More art!  Lots of links! A hastily assembled and incomplete “Best of” list! And also: Show Notes!

“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…

“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!
