Fridays...with Greg Hatcher Archives - Page 4 of 34 - Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources
This was one of those weeks where I was buried in work stuff– writing gigs, school things, and so on. So I just didn’t get a lot of reading done. Didn’t get down to the comics shop, didn’t really get to attack the review pile or the Shelf of Shame… there are piles and piles of books just sitting there, making me feel ridiculously guilty.
What I did get to do was watch a lot of weird old movies and TV shows. Continue Reading »
Looking back at the last year, I find…. that all of us comics blog types over the last couple of weeks are writing about the last year. So here I am doing it too. What can I say? The peer pressure’s too much for me.

I don’t know if this happens to you, but I get this ALL THE TIME during the holiday season.

I am rude about a lot of the new books DC’s been putting out lately. I’ll own it. But it doesn’t mean I don’t want to like them. I bought two new trade collections from DC this week, in fact, and one of them I liked a lot. The other one struck me as one-stop shopping for everything I really don’t care for about the New 52.

Normally I am a reasonable, easygoing person. Today, though, not so much. Continue Reading »
This is one of those weird little fan milestones that I not only never expected to actually reach, but I honestly thought it was impossible. Continue Reading »
Once again, my town is gripped with panic at the thought of experiencing… Weather. Continue Reading »
A little of this, a little of that… comics and TV and books, all with a spooky angle, none of which was big enough to warrant its own piece. Continue Reading »
I’m sorry to report that Lou Scheimer, co-founder and president of Filmation Studios, has passed away. He was 84. Continue Reading »
