“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

“Rodeo Ain’t Over Yet!” COMICS! Sometimes I Don’t Have A Title!

John Kane

Hello! Here are some words about some comics. The sales figures analysis is just below this. Very good it is too! To clarify, the Hibbs’ stuff is good, not this stuff. Anyway, this…

“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.

“Let ‘Em Loose, Bobo!” COMICS! Sometimes They May Arouse The Proles!

John Kane

How goes the day! I guess after that Olympics Opening Ceremony I should just assure all our American friends, particularly your President, that the National Health Service doesn’t actually mean that you have a socialist nation 3,000 miles off the coast of America. And, no, if you let this stand all of Europe isn’t going to go next in a kind of domino effect. You guys are so ansty! Connor Willumson/Jason Latour (art/words) I read some comics and then did the words thing. You can do the reading bit if you like, if there’s nowt on the box.

“A Moi La Légion!” COMICS! Sometimes I Have Too Much Sun!

John Kane

Greetings! It has been sunny in England for more than three consecutive days. This means that the entire nation is required by Law to sit outside until their skins glow like pink suns and crack like dry riverbeds in Texan heat. So I have been doing that. This means I didn’t read many comics and when I wrote about them the fact that my brain had been lightly boiled in its own juices didn’t seem to have a beneficial effect on my thought processes or judgement. But, hey, I made my deadline! I made it, Ma! I’m a hack!

“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:

Hibbs catches up, sort of — 4/18′s books

Brian Hibbs

Happy 4/20! OK, getting much closer to being “on time”, right there under the jump!

“…Of the PERPETUAL nightmare of the BESTIAL LIGHT in his EYES.” Comics? Sometimes they’re so good I get a bit excited!

John Kane

I’m back! And God help those with a low tolerance for self-indulgence! Or is it the guilty? It’s the guilty isn’t it. Wait, I’ll try that again, don’t go anywhere…I need a hat, a big hat…where’s my hat…
