“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

“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

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.

“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…

“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…

“No! It’s ANGRY!” COMICS! Sometimes They Bow Before The King (Of R’n’R).

John Kane

Good Day! Jolly Good Day! Over here we are shortly to be having a Jubilee shindig! You don’t get one so I gave you this instead. It’s all over the bally shop but some of it is about comics. You have been warned and so my hands are clean but look at the state of your fingernails!

“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:

“Like Porcelain, They Shattered.” Comics! Sometimes They Contain Ageless Horror!

John Kane

An eerie sense of deja vu descends upon you now as I talk about Richard Corben, Simon Revelstroke and a very odd house indeed. Viewings by appointment only, please call first to avoid disappointment!

“It Has A HEART And A MIND!” Comics! Sometimes They Are Dissolute.

John Kane

Come Sir, or Madam, set yourself beside this hearth and join me in a snifter as we peruse a periodical of low-repute and learn of a very naughty home, a most naughty home indeed!
