Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines, Day 297: Swamp Thing #151

Every day this year, I will be examining the first pages of random comics. This month I will be showing pages that are either scary or are part of “scary” issues (as scary as a comic can be, of course), because it’s October! Today’s page is from Swamp Thing #151, which was published by DC/Vertigo and is cover dated February 1995. Enjoy!

House to Astonish Episode 92

A couple of days late, but better late than never, Paul and I have got just over an hour and ten minutes of chat for you on Marvel’s latest wave of teasers, Mark Millar’s new role at Fox, the expanded line-up of the Avengers, IDW’s latest mega-crossover and David Lloyd’s Aces Weekly. We’ve also got reviews of Non-Humans, Uncanny X-Men and Detective Comics , and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is the new Buzz Lightyear. All this plus the Avengers’ five-a-side football tournament, boob claws and the Secret Invasion point-and-click adventure.

Everyone who wears a monocle is automatically EVIL!!!!

We’re looking for your input too – let us know what you think of any of the things we’ve talked about on this podcast, including (but certainly not limited to):

  • Who are your hopes for the unannounced remaining members of the Avengers? Who should return, and who should get their first shot at the big leagues?
  • What have been the high points of the New 52 for you, a year into the relaunch? What books have surprised you, either by being better than they sounded on paper or by being disappointments?
  • What creators do you think have made big improvements in their output over the years, getting better from a shaky start (or recovering from a quality dip)?

The podcast is here, or on Mixcloud here. You can also find us on iTunes or via Stitcher.com (or their free iOS or Android apps).

Or you can listen to it right here:

Let us know what you think, either in the comments below, on Twitter, via email or through our Facebook fan page.

Cracked’s Six Creepiest Comic Book Characters Ever

Shockingly, Chris Sims didn’t write this one, even if his pet hate character is number one. It’s also interesting to see how far off the radar the Ultimate comics have been, that I didn’t know that Jeph Loeb had found a way to make Mark Millar look more subtle by comparison. I think that has to qualify as an achievement.
