Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: 1958 – A Year in Review Pt. 1

1958 was a very interesting year for comic books. The Comics Code Authority was now firmly entrenched and many publishers had already closed up shop. 1958 represented the final nail in the coffin for a few more, but many companies continued with reduced input, while others were flush with success. Here’s a look at what was going on at a handful of those companies in 1958:

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: Please Reprint These Charltons Pt. 3

This week I’ve picked 5 Charltons that I would really like to see to satisfy some personal curiosity. They may not make much sense at all from a commercial perspective, and perhaps that’s why I’m not in the publishing biz.

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: Please Reprint These Charltons Pt.1

When people think of Charlton, they often think of poor paper quality and lackluster stories. That’s somewhat understandable, but altogether unfortunate because there are a lot of hidden gems dotted through Charlton’s long history. This week, I’m looking at a handful of titles I’d love to see reprinted.

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: DC’s Return to Space

Midway through 1979, DC comics headed to outer space. Perhaps inspired by the popularity of Star Wars (as well as the new Star Trek movie) DC launched the two new science fiction titles and introduced space adventures into some of their other series. Let’s have a look at how the short-lived space bug of mid-1979 impacted DC:

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: Underappreciated Artist Spotlight – Bob Fujitani

If you have never heard the name Bob Fujitani, you are in for a real treat. As far as Golden Age greats go, he may be the most ‘under the radar’ of them all. His work is as prolific as it is exquisite, but his name rarely seems to come up in conversations about the all-time greats.

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: DC’s Two-Shots

I’ve always loved One-Shots, but they are usually designed as such and are plentiful. There are tons of short-lived series, whose fates were sealed once sales figures began to roll in. A series lasting a mere two issues, however, is a rare thing and a real mystery as they are clearly not one-shots, but were cancelled long before any data could have been collected. DC had a few of these in the 60s and 70s, so let’s take a look.

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: Damn Yankees

Here we are at the end of June, and the Yankees sit atop the American League East and my beloved Blue Jays slide back down towards mediocrity. Not only have the Yankees dominated major league baseball over the years, but they have also made an impact in comic books. This week is dedicated to our fearless leader Brian, as I take a look at those Damn Yankees!

Scott’s Classic Comics Corner: Some Understated 100th Issues

According to the little counter on the right hand margin of this stie, this is my 100th installment of the Classic Comics Corner. Beginning with Comics on Parade #100, comic books have typically celebrated their 100th issue with some sort of special issue. This week, I’m taking a look at some classic comics that had entertaining 100th issues, while completely ignoring that important milestone.
