heavy_metal_280_smile (2)

Join me under the cut for everything you want to know about nekkid sci-fi weirdness!

R.I.P. Darwyn Cooke, 1962-2016

Cooke%20New%20Frontier

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Darwyn Cooke died last night at the age of 53. He had been battling cancer and was receiving palliative care, but lost the fight early this morning, according to his family. Cooke was a great artist who did amazing work on a lot of DC’s characters, and his graphic adaptations of Richard Stark’s “Parker” novels are excellent. As the link notes, if you want to make a donation, you can do so to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Hero Initiative.

It’s a sad day for the comics world, but go get your copy of New Frontier or Selina’s Big Score or any of the other superb Cooke comics out there and give them a read and remember what a staggering talent he was. And let’s hope that someday, we can figure out a way to cure cancer. That would be nice.

Review time! with Dark Corridor, Four Eyes: Hearts of Fire, Gutter Magic, Limbo, and Mayday

You may have caught the fact that we’re planning on moving because we’ve outgrown our house – the kids are 13 and 10, and my older one needs bigger equipment if we’re going to move her around, and our house is just too small. So we’re staying in Arizona but moving into a bigger house. April was busy already, and it didn’t get any better toward the end of the month, so I couldn’t really do a big review post with all the trades I read during the month, but several mini-series ended, so I figured I’d check those out. So here we go!

When I first started writing these posts, over a decade ago, I might have skipped this, because I wanted to focus on things that weren’t quite so famous. That changed pretty quickly, however, so of course I’m going to write about these comics!!!

roguesoddparenthood5 (2)

I wanted to start doing these kinds of posts – where I write about one-shots and complete arcs as well as trades and other stuff – in January, but January is always a busy month for me, so I tend to slack off a bit with my comics writing. So let’s get started with February, shall we?
