A muted implosion

August 4th, 2020

While checking my feeds this morning, I saw a twitter post from pal Greg announcing that Avengers Annual #10 hit the stands 39 years ago today. It got me thinking — not about the story itself, which was Chris Claremont’s vituperative response to the extremely grotesque send-off Carol Danvers got in Avengers #200. The grottiness […]

A plague of idleness

July 27th, 2020

That was a longer than anticipated hiatus, but time in the pandemic era is a curious thing. Measuring by the closure of the Kid’s school, the lockdown began on my birthday and has inexorably crawled forward to engulf Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the Kid’s birthday, the Fourth of July, and — most recently — […]

I’ve already written about my involvement with this amazing anthology, so I’ll just cut to the hard sell. Sixty-five pages. Twelve chilling tales of the supernatural. A phenomenal roster of talented […]

Go west, young fan

June 20th, 2016

Fellow quarter bin enthusiast Greg Araujo put forward a trio of questions.

…and the winner for “Absolute Best Fight Choreography in a Golden Age Funnybook” goes to… …Jack Cole (with Tony DiPreta on inks) for Smash Comics #38 (December 1942).

Just doesn’t seem logical

February 27th, 2015

Leonard Nimoy was a true son of the Bay State and an iconic figure who transcended multiple generational lines. He could also rock the Swinging Seventies look like no man before or since. He will be missed. Recommended listening: Len goes electric.
