I'm to old to do anything but enjoy the scenery.
Although there do seem to be a lot of girls with Daddy issues nowadays.
Beat To A Pulp: Hardboiled 2 edited by David Cranmer.
We are in the midst of a mini noir boom. A lot of it is coming out of a number of Internet magazines and some of it is pretty good. "Beat...
When did every book, character, movie, TV show, bowel movement and street crossing become a "franchise"? And how can we make it stop?
Did you go for "new car" scent or something floral?
It will last until people stop buying and they aren't making money. As long as people buy junk they don't need companies will supply that junk.
Trade dress changes on books all the time for a variety of reasons. Shame is pretty low on that list of reasons.
No. It's not.
Regulars know by now that I'm not a Superman fan. About the only incarnation I like are the original Siegel & Shuster stories.
That pretty well carries over to other media. The Fleischer...
Other than the Levitz-Giffen era in the 80s the book was always pretty marginal. It bounced from book to book before it found a home. And after the 80s run always seemed to have on foot on a banana...
It's probably less the quality of the crazy than the who of the crazy. Seriously not someone I expected to freak out to that extent.
Watching an otherwise rational individual go absolutely bat-shit crazy over the cancellation of the Legion book and its replacement.
Lord...Legion "fans" are as insane as Wonder Woman and X-fans.
I've seen a few strip artists, but so far no Milton Caniff, no Walt Kelly, no Noel Sickles. For shame.
Collins is a fine writer when he sticks to his strengths, which are hard-boiled detectives. Ms. Tree is as good a detective comic as has ever been done. Road to Perdition is a very good book. His...
Let me know if you see some. I never have
I didn't read the books. My guess is I might some day watch the movie if there is absolutely nothing else to do. I know I'm not the target audience and just the reviews made me a tad nauseous.
Johnny Hazard is a great strip. His work on Scorchy Smith was good also, but he had to follow Noel Sickles and that just ain't fair.
Not necessarily. Hammett absolutely hated The Thin Man, but it's one if his best pieces. To be fair he hated most of his work.
Faulkner went to Hollywood strictly for the money, but the...
It will be good for the fan that crying Superman made the scene.
It's self-delusion. That way they can think it's as important to everyone else as it is to them. I can almost guarantee John Broome was never passionate about any of the stories he wrote. It was a...
I'll have to keep an eye out for a copy. I'm not a King fan, but the word on this is pretty darn good.
I am not at that point, but my comic reading has been very minimal.
Have you gotten to Joyland yet? It seems to have pretty good word of mouth.
I'm not sure I've ever been less interested in reading comics than I have lately. Nothing holds my interest.
