DC Comics Solicitations for October


Life (and the amazing rarity of wonderful British sunshine) meant that I didn’t buy my comics for last week and I didn’t see Superman Returns. I feel ashamed to the pit of my soul, which is why I find it ironic that my next topic of discussion is upcoming comics (that I will buy much later than when they come…

Comic Reviews For 29 June


Yes, the reviews are two weeks out of date – you really should be used to that by now. I don’t need no steenkin’ timeliness … Even though I read these comics as the same time as I read the comics for 22 June at the same time (in a crazed comic bender last weekend), I separate out the reviews…

Inventory, Good News, A Great Film


Incoming Inventory – 13 July To make up for last week’s barren list, this week the publishers of the ninth art provide me with periodicals: 100 Bullets #74 I’ve been reading this for too long to switch to the trades now, so I look forward to my monthly hit of Bullets, as we head towards the last quarter. Fables #51…

End Of The Week Equals Links


Verily, doth my head acheth, so links must sooth mine furrowed brow. A belated Happy Blogiversary to Mark; one year down, many more to go. Keep up the good work. Kevin Smith seems to go out of his way to show that he is just like us (apart from being richer and more famous), as he blogs about the triviality…

No, I’m Not American – Can You Guess?


As it is Independence Day, and the blogosphere goes all American, I thought I would counter that by going all British and posting images to the American answer to Captain America – ladies and gents, I give you CAPTAIN BRITAIN! The original version, which looked very silly. Not quite sure why the suit is mostly red, but this was a…

No Content, Just Commiserations


So, there will be no posting today. For several reasons. 1. I was away from town all weekend, so no comics were purchased. AGAIN. This is getting a little embarrassing … 2. England were knocked out of the World Cup this weekend, leaving me in no mood for being creative. The game was fairly even, but the penalties were just…

Incoming Inventory – June 29


Usagi Yojimbo #94I don’t have it in me to do Comics Activisim but, if I did, I would do it for Usagi Yojimbo. I have been a fanatic for the rabbit bodyguard since I discovered him sometime ago. I buy the singles, but also buy the trades as well, because it is just that good. According to ICv2.com, Usagi Yojimbo…

Are You Going To Buy Comics To Review?


The weekend didn’t quite turn out the way I had anticipated; I couldn’t get my comics and haven’t read my New Avengers back issues yet, so I’m just going to groove on a wave of unrelated synaptic firings. Because I have a disturbing weakness for watching really bad films about strong females in sexy outfits being violent in genre action…
