A Cup Tea & A Few Comics Issue Two: Commando 5017

In what may or may not become a new feature - although with this being the second post under that tagline, it's looking more likely that it will be - I decided to make a cup of tea (PG Tips again) and sit down and read a comic or two whilst I drank said cuppa. …

Rest Well, Bright Knight: Adam West Passes At Age 88

After a brief battle with leukemia, Mr. West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.  The Hollywood Reporter has a nice biography on the Batman star, which I encourage you to read. For many of us, Adam West was the first man we …

The Brit In Canada Finally Got Some British Comics!

In the last month I was fortunate enough to head back to England to visit family, friends and eat the food  that I missed the most while living in Atlantic Canada - a pasty. Copious amounts of them, actually. I also took the opportunity to bring back as many British comics as I could find …

Yes, I Drink From This: It’s A Helluva Cup

While I was visiting family in England, I was using this mahoosive mug for my tea.  Multiple cups a day, in fact, because I have a stereotype to live up too. Before you ask, because I'm uploading this from my phone, there isn't any forced perspective editing to make my hand look smaller (I don't …

Underrated: Reprint Comics

This is a column that focuses on something or some things from the comic book sphere of influence that may not get the credit and recognition it deserves. Whether that's a list of comic book movies, ongoing comics, or a set of stories featuring a certain character. The columns may take the form of a bullet …

When Attending A Con, Make Sure You Know What Day It’s On…

The title kinda gives away the direction of this post, eh? As you may or may not know, I recently traveled to the UK to visit some family, friends and eat more food than I needed (weight was gained, but not as much as I expected). I picked up a few British comics, magazines, and …

Has Marvel Lost The Magic?

I'm having a bit of a reflective week this week, in part because I turned another year older recently, but  it's almost twenty years to the day since I brought my first Wolverine comic as a young and impressionable preteen. Because of that I've been reading quite a few older Wolverine comics and stories that …

Batman And Bill, The Only Reason I’m Getting Hulu, Has A Trailer!

The Hulu only documentary Batman And Bill released a trailer the other day, and I finally got around to watching it today. I thought you'd want to have a look as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcBDjjY2swE For more of my thoughts on Bill Finger, checkout the category that you'll be able to find below (I think).

Thought Of The Day: The Smell Of Old Comics

A couple days ago I went dollar bin diving and picked up a couple of older comics, one of which was Conan The Barbarian Annual #8.  Although you can find a Dollar Bin Review of the comic posted earlier in the week, that's not what I wanted to talk about today. You see the first …

Every Comic Fan’s Dream Gone Horribly Wrong…

I came across a four year old article from the Daily Mail this morning about a man who was lucky enough to find what we all hope to find in the bin: a rare comic that we can make a fortune off. Only this man, an artist in Sheffield, England, didn't know what he'd found... …
