Greg Hatcher, Author at Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources

Last Saturday at the Raspberry Festival

It’s been over a year since we have been able to go on any kind of a real trip. But finally, the stars– and work schedules– aligned, and last weekend we were off to the north to see what we could turn up in the way of books, comics, and other diversions. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for July 2014

By the time you see this, Julie and I will be away on our first road trip of 2014; we are off to the north for a long weekend of bookscouting and goofing off. So in the meantime, here are various items that struck me as interesting enough to give a little space here, but not worth a column on their own. Continue Reading »

Weekend with the Review Pile, Redux

Just trying to clean up the rest of the stuff from my to-review pile. Post-atomic horror, apes, steampunk cowboy vampires, and a few cats and dogs. No, really.

But first, the answer to a question I’ve had more than once. Continue Reading »

Fourth of July Weekend with the Review Pile

I’m happy to be a U.S. citizen and everything that goes with it. I’m as patriotic as anyone, really. But nevertheless, I have to own up… I loathe the Fourth of July. Always have. Continue Reading »

Friday by Gaslight

So this week I got to see the fulfillment of a (nearly) lifelong ambition. Continue Reading »

This Year’s Saturday in Olympia

Sometimes smaller is better. And when it comes to a comics show, I’m about ready to say that smaller is ALWAYS better. Continue Reading »

Friday on the Planet of the Apes

For me these things always seem to come in waves.

Last week it was a whole bunch of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard-type stuff showing up all at once. This week it seems like it’s all about Planet of the Apes. Continue Reading »

Friday’s Trivia Contest: Retro-Cosmic Edition

It’s been a while since I did one of these, and it seems like everyone always enjoys them. Certainly, I do… and so does John Trumbull, who emailed me suggesting one at almost the same time I put up a query on the CSBG forum here about it. Clearly, it was in the cards. So it’s time for another Hardcore, Take-No-Prisoners Trivia Contest! Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for May 2014

This and that. A few short items that I thought were worth mentioning, but not to the point where any one of them rates its own column. A little bit of bookbindery, some thoughts on TV and movies, some cool books that arrived in the mail… and oh, yeah, comics. Continue Reading »

Sunday’s Annual Inventory 2014

It’s that time of year again where I look at my pull list and decide what stays and what goes. Continue Reading »

Sunday’s Signal Boost

When this particular news story started popping up all over the comics internet I figured we were going to go through the same old cycle of stupid.

This time is different, though. Someone’s trying to change the usual narrative. What she and her friends have done is really terrific and a welcome change from the usual back-and-forth sniping. It made me smile so much that I thought I’d talk about it here and help spread the word. Continue Reading »

Easter Sunday in the Stacks

book

Still shaking off our convention colds and dealing with other issues, so it’s capsule reviews this week. These are some books of note that have crossed my path in the last month or so. Some comics, some merely comics-adjacent…. and one that I’m certain found its way to me by mistake but that I liked enough to recommend here. Continue Reading »
