What I bought – May 2014 selections

catwoman001

“The novel I would most like to read at this moment,” Ludmilla explains, “should have as its driving force only the desire to narrate, to pile stories upon stories, without trying to impose a philosophy of life on you, simply allowing you to observe its own growth, like a tree, an entangling, as if of branches and leaves …” (Italo Calvino, from If on a winter’s night a traveler)

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Alan Davis, and the story is Part 4 of “D. R. & Quinch Get Drafted” from 2000AD #358, which was published by Fleetway and is cover dated 3 March 1984. This scan is from The Complete D. R. & Quinch trade paperback, which was published by Rebellion in 2010. Enjoy!

Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines Archive!

Yes, it’s a list of all the posts in which I’ve been looking at the first pages of comics. You could just click the category tag, but in this post, I’ve organized them! Whoo-hoo! I placed this on 1 January for the entire year, but now that the year is over, I thought I’d move it to the final day of the year!

Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines, Day 39: Judge Dredd Megazine #2.37

Every day this month, I will be examining the first pages of random comics. This month I will be doing theme weeks, with each week devoted to a single artist. This week: Frank Quitely! Today’s page is from Judge Dredd Megazine #2.37, which was published by Rebellion and is cover dated … well, I’m not sure, but it came out sometime in 1993 (perhaps 18 September, but I can’t pin that down definitively). Enjoy!

What I bought – 28 September 2011

“… All idealization makes life poorer. To beautify it is to take away its character of complexity — it is to destroy it.” (Joseph Conrad, from The Secret Agent)

Hipsters assemble! There's only one thing on this cover that is not misleading! 'How?  How?  How can I get Kool-Aid out of the carpet?!?!? Look out for the Joker truck! If comics have taught us anything, it's never trust anyone with a minister's collar on! Is it a mirage? More fun with Brian Braddock! More fun with annotations! Maybe now everyone will get off my case about the fact that I haven't read 'Blankets' Man, Henry Flint is good

Flippin’ through Previews – September 2010

If I were a flunkie at DC, I’d propose publishing FIFTY Bat-titles a month … and nothing else! Come on, DC – you can’t lose! In the meantime, we’ll have to peruse this month’s Previews for other, non-Batman-and-thus-far-inferior titles!

What I bought – 16 June 2010

Let us not be deluded by forms of government. The word may be republic in France, constitutional monarchy in Prussia, absolute monarchy in Austria, but the thing is the same. Wherever there is a vast standing army, the government is the government of the sword. (Benjamin D’Israeli, 1852)

Ms. Kelly Thompson didn't like this cover, but I kind of dig it! Yes, it's girl-on-girl action - you gotta problem with that? Ruas' covers just creep me out, man! It's the semi-annual issue! Hot damn, Bisley's covers kick ass! Dynamite manages to get a Green Hornet crossover into this book, which is quite a trick! Calling central casting! Nothing's tougher than a cat smoking a cigarette! Spooktacular! I wonder if there is any lamentation of the women in this comic? A work of staggering genius?  I think so! Chicks with swords sell like hotcakes! It's all optical illusiony!
