Another Weekend With the Review Pile

Fair warning– most of these books aren’t strictly comics, they’re more comics-adjacent. But people keep sending them to me and some of them will, I think, be of interest to you all.

Saturday’s Trivia Contest – Sidekick Edition

It’s been a while since I did one of these, and it seems like everyone always enjoys them. Certainly, I do. So it’s time for another Hardcore, Take-No-Prisoners Trivia Contest!

This time, it’s all about SIDEKICKS. You know, the loyal companions, the boy wonders, and the endangered girlfriends that abound in adventure and superhero comics. We might even throw in a couple of pulp fiction and television hero-type folks too. Continue Reading »

Saturday in the Stacks

I don’t usually do much in the way of New Year’s resolutions, but this year I made one that I thought I’d share with you all. But there’s a brief bit of backstory first. Continue Reading »

My Year-End Roundup Thing… Built Out Of Other, Vintage Years

A Weekend With the Good Stuff

As is his habit, Kiel Phegley emailed all of us at CBR asking us to give him our annual best-of-the-year top ten, so that he can edit together CBR’s annual top 100 picks from all of us. Continue Reading »

Fugitive Weekend at a Haunted Hotel

This year’s hide-out-from-the-holidays road trip was, for me, the fulfillment of an idle wish I’d been carrying around in the back of my head for years. Continue Reading »

Yet Another Useless Friday Daydream

As you read this, my wife and I are already off on our annual hide-out holiday from the holidays, or as we like to call it, Fugitive Thanksgiving.

So for this week’s column, here’s something from the archives– one of the few times where I actually wrote a superhero comic myself. Sort of. Continue Reading »
