Adventure’s In Editing #2 – Marvel’s Turn
Published on Friday, March 9, 2012 by In the first edition, episode, issue (?) of this new feature of my column, I said that I had hammered DC enough recently and that it was Marvel's turn. The only problem was that I wrote about some good stuff that Marvel had done. But now? It's Marvel's turn. (more…)...
He’s Not Supposed To Die Yet
Published on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 by I just watched this week's episode of The Walking Dead and over the weekend I finished up reading the second volume of the comic book. And I wonder why they're so different. (more…)...
Adventures In Editing #1 – Marvel Does It Right?
Published on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 by My last couple columns, okay most of my columns recently, have hammered DC and the New 52 pretty bad (but hey, at least I left that horrible new logo alone). So I figured it was Marvel's turn. (more…)...
Need A Setting?  Let’s Invent A New City Or Planet!
Published on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 by So, if you haven't figured it out by now, my big thing with comics is the story. I care about how a story is crafted and one thing I can't stand is lazy writing. And one of the laziest things in writing that annoy is me is the throwaway city, country or even planet. What do I mean by "throwaway"? It's when the writer creates a new city, country or planet for a s...
Avengers Vs X-Men…. Yawn!
Published on Friday, February 17, 2012 by I've hammered the New 52 alot lately, so it's time to sit back and see if they can fix it or if it just falls apart. So who's turn is it now? Marvels, of course. The big event is Avengers vs X-Men. Can I just skip ahead a couple months so I don't have to bother with these? I HATE super hero conflicts. They are so old and worn out. The stories are ti...
DC’s The New 52 Already Sinking?
Published on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 by Does anyone see the amount of creative team changes on the New 52 books as a positive thing? Today it was just announced that Jeff Lemire is leaving Frankenstein and joining Justice League Dark. Peter Milligan is leaving Justice League Dark and joining Stormwatch. Matt Kindt is the incoming writer on Frankenstein. Add those to the list of other creative team...
How DC Could Have Gotten Me To Buy More Titles (by not messing up the DC/Wildstorm integration)
Published on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 by Now this is just me talking, my feelings and not anything I've guessed/assumed/surmised, but I really think DC has missed some golden chances with their integration of the Wildstorm universe with the DCU. Sure we got Stormwatch, Grifter and Voodoo in their own books. But there were so many other chances to tie the two universes together. And their marketing arm ...
Of Course It Should Be On Time!
Published on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 by Recently Newsarama did one of their Top 10s and part of it caught my eye. This particular one was "Top 10 Comic Book Trends Of 2011". Number 2 was "On Time Shipping". Basically it was saying that it was a new trend for books to come out in the month they were soliciated for, and the publishers making intiatives to insure this happened (like multiple artists on a bo...
Quick Thoughts #2 – DC’s First Round Of Cancelations and The Difference Between Associate and Assistant Editors?
Published on Friday, January 13, 2012 by Just a collection of random thoughts about current events in the world of comics. 1) DC announced the first titles of the New 52 era that are being canceled. The titles being canceled: Men Of War, Blackhawks, Mister Terrific, OMAC, Hawk And Dove and Static Shock (sorry John, aka BigIV). Hawk And Dove, Mister Terrific and Blackhawks aren't really a surprise. What w...
