“Azzarello: But there’s always room for a 10th issue. [Laughs]” COMICS! Sometimes The Laughter is Hollow.

John Kane

Some say it’s not the journey but the destination. In this case it’s very much about the destination, which is the final issue of the artistically impoverished big ticket cash-grab from DC Comics, Dark Knight III: The Master Race. After this we’ll all just pretend it never happened and get on with our lives. We shall never speak of this again. EVER. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“Ma! Ma! Ma! Ki! Ki! Ki!” MOVIES! VIDEO GAMES! PARENTING! Sometimes there’s Something For Everyone (Except Comics Fans)!

John Kane

As I probably said, I’m quite busy at the minute. But I like to write to relieve the stress. So I wrote this. It’s about the Friday The 13th movies, being a dad, the implacable march of time and the Friday The 13th game on PS4. It’s of limited interest, except to students of the pointlessly self-indulgent. But that’s never stopped me before! Anyway, this…

“And What He IS is GONE.” COMICS! Sometimes Persistence Doesn’t Pay Off.

John Kane

Nearly there. Good soldier. Nearly there. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“Lew’s Gettin’ Me BUPKIS.” COMICS! Sometimes I Wonder Who Will Think Of The Children!

John Kane

In which I talk about a kid’s comic featuring Space Ghost and Green Lantern. That’s right, I’m 47 years old. It’s called living the dream, baby. Living the dream! RUFF’N’REDDY by Chaykin, Quintana and Brosseau

“I’ll TILT-A-WHIRL You…!” Sometimes The Louder You Scream The Faster It Goes!

John Kane

Just one comic, and not too many words. Oh, happy 4th of July, I guess. This one’s for all of my American buddies. (It’s got nothing whatsoever to do with the 4th of July, if I’m being quite honest.) SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE: “The Clown” by Corben Anyway, this…

“Why the Hell Why?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Sobering To Think That This Comic Is Someone’s Idea of Fun.

John Kane

In which I continue to try and make up lost ground by looking at issue 7 (of 8 of 9) of DC Comic’s big-ticket Bat event. By popular demand! Well, two people, anyway. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“See God’s Truth In Loving Action!” COMICS! Sometimes Salmonella Should Be On A Certain Someone’s Mind!

John Kane

I don’t know what happened! I wrote about three whole comics in less than fifty billion words! It won’t happen again. My apologies. I don’t know what I was thinking. I certainly wasn’t thinking about this intro, which is why it’s so weak. Rush politely past it and read on… BLUBBER by Gilbert Hernandez Anyway, this…

“****ing WHITE People, Know’m Sayin’?” COMICS! Sometimes People Are…Complicated!

John Kane

That surly rogue Howard Victor Chaykin had a new comic out, so I took a look. Buckle up, Sunshine… THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA by Chaykin, Bruzenak & Arbutov Anyway, this…

“F*** you, Tarzan.” COMICS! Sometimes ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore!

John Kane

In which I aimlessly amble around Howard Victor Chaykin’s recent series ‘Midnight of the Soul’ and see what strikes my fancy. No, really, even more than usual, I just sort of prattle on rather aimlessly and hope some kind of coherent point emerges. It probably won’t, but as I haven’t written it yet we’ll have to find out together. Take my hand, fellow stranger in paradise! Take my hand… MIDNIGHT OF THE SOUL by Chaykin, Arbutov and Bruzenak Anyway, this…

“…Gimme A Circus Like This Anyday.” COMICS! Sometimes We’re In Like Flint!

John Kane

There’s a little bit of Dredd in this one, a smidgeon mayhap. However there is a whole lot of Carlos Ezquerra and he’s really making his computer colouring work in this one. Some real freaky skyscapes going on in the background of these panels. If you’re a Carlos Ezquerra fan you’ll probably want to pick this one up. Oh, looks like I started the review early, better put the rest under the jump. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! CURSED EARTH KOBURN by Carlos Ezquerra Anyway, this…

“Death Among The Hors D’oeuvres.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Tough, Tough Toys For Tough, Tough Boys!

John Kane

What would Thunderbirds be like in the world of Judge Dredd? My dog has no nose; why isn’t Robbie Morrison funny? What if the messiah was susceptible to weed killer?  What would be the absolute best name for a character in a very cold place? Can a gun be too big? And if war is so terrible why is it so good for John Wagner? All questions I’ll probably forget to answer in the latest jolly riverdance through the JUDGE DREDD MEGA COLLECTION. JUDGE DREDD: THE HEAVY MOB by P J Holden Anyway, this…

“I Guess You Could Call It An EYEFUL SORE!” COMICS! Sometimes That Joke Isn’t Punny Anymore!

John Kane

Bit of a hybrid this time out. It’s a little bit European and a little bit American. Something for everyone! Also, Batman! Everyone loves Batman! Unfortunately it’s kind of terrible. But, wait! I’m getting ahead of myself… BATMAN: EUROPA by Parel, Camuncoli, Casali, Azzarello and Brosseau Anyway, this…

“…Do Not Adjust Your Brains!” COMICS! Sometimes “M-O-O-N” Spells “Moon”, Despite What Tom Cullen Thinks.

John Kane

Judge Dredd on the moon. That’s it. JUDGE DREDD: DARKSIDE by Marshall Anyway, this…

“NOBODY Calls Me CHICKEN HEAD!” COMICS! Sometimes I Hope You Brought A Clean Pair Of Pants.

John Kane

Are you ready to quiver in horripilation at the future terrors accosting Mega-City One’s premiere lawman? No, well come back when you are. JUDGE DREDD: THE HAUNTING OF SECTOR HOUSE 9 by Brett Ewins Anyway, this…

“My Diabetes Prevents Me.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Theatre of Blood!

John Kane

Hey kids! Who’s up for a heroically opaque fable about a vengeful castrato, illustrated in a darkly twisted melange of Gustav Klimt and José Muñoz! Okay, howabout if I describe it as CH Greenblatt’s Chowder via E.T.A. Hoffman? Ooooh, your little ears perked right up! Yes! It’s Euro-comic time! Everybody loves The Eurocomics! FOLIGATTO by Nicolas de Crécy and Alexios Tjoyas Anyway, this…

“Not Unless He Had Three Legs.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Nice To Have A Change Of Scenery!

John Kane

In which Judge Dredd is a right gadabout and doesn’t even have the decency to send a postcard. !!BONUS MAP OF THE MEGA-TERRITORIES!! JUDGE DREDD: GULAG by Charlie Adlard Anyway, this…

“EASY THE FERG!” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Not The Fall That Kills You!

John Kane

It’s Valentine’s Day! This Valentine’s Day Judge Dredd’s first and only love, The Law, sends a Valentine…straight…to…his…HEART! JUDGE DREDD: THE DAY THE LAW DIED by Bolland, Wagner & Frame Anyway, this…

“We Must Allow None of These DIBBUKS To Escape!” COMICS! Sometimes God Loves a Trier.

John Kane

A funny thing happened on the way to The Reichstag…. 7 PSYCHOPATHS by Phillips, Vehlmann, Heching, Hubert & Peteri Anyway, this…

“I Have No Interest In Pleasure.” COMICS! Sometimes They Make Jurassic Park Look Like Flamingo Land!

John Kane

So while I was musing, as is my wont, upon THE LAST AMERICAN it occurred to me that it could also be read as a riposte to another strip involving a trek across a post-nuke landscape. One Wagner was also involved in, but which was driven mainly by Pat Mills. The difference between the two approaches is telling. But I don’t tell you about that, instead I just ramble aimlessly in my irritatingly hyperbolic style. It’s “An Impossible Journey Through a Radioactive Hell…” It’s “The Cursed Earth”! JUDGE DREDD: THE CURSED EARTH by McMahon & Mills Anyway, this…

 “It seemed CENTURIES had passed.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Not As Easy As It Looks.

John Kane

No, I don’t know why I bother either. Masochism, I guess. DKIII:TMR by Kubert, Janson, Azzarello, Anderson, Robins & Miller Anyway, this…

“This Old FAMILIAR!” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Not Like Going Down The Pond Chasin’ Bluegills And Tommycods.

John Kane

Time for one last blast of comics magic before I shut down for the holidays. Read it or don’t. I wish you all the very merriest of holidays. And I send out a special thanks to Brian “ I have Top Men on it.” Hibbs for continuing to host my nonsense for yet another year. It is appreciated. Thanks also to Abhay for classing the joint up in his own uniquely spectacular way. And thanks most of all to you for, gee, just being you.  Have a very merry one, everyone.  And now Ho-Ho-Ho-HOOKJAW! HOOKJAW! By Boyle, Spurrier, Brusco, Steen Anyway, this…
