Book-A-Day 2018 #52: Bizarro Heroes by Dan Piraro

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 03:00:25 +0000

There’s not a whole lot to say about this book as a book, so it might be time for some Book-A-Day behind-the-scenes. You see, to keep the hopper fed — especially early in the year, which sets the tone and energy for the whole project — I’m making sure to read at least one book […]

The Law Is A Ass #427: The Flash Sings Happy Trials To You

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 18:08:35 +0000

So what do you do when you’re feeling nostalgic? If you’re me – and luckily for me, I am me – you write about The Trial of the Flash. No, not the one from 1983, the one from last month. On the TV series The Flash. So let’s get you up to speed; pun intended. […]

#WakandaTheVote gets voters registered at ‘Black Panther’ showings

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 18:10:36 +0000

Ebony magazine reports that Black Panther is going to have an even bigger impact in America than expected, as people are signing up voters at screenings. #WakandaTheVote is a measure from the Electoral Justice Project (EJP) which will allow moviegoers to register to vote at Black Panther screenings throughout the nation. The mission was the […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #48: Shoulder-A-Coffin Kuro, Vols. 4 & 5 by Satoko Kiyuduki

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 02:14:34 +0000

Reading a book at four-year intervals is probably not the best way to keep it in the front of one’s mind. But I read the first two volumes of Shoulder-A-Coffin Kuro (one and two) back in 2010, and then the third in 2014, so, since it’s 2018 now, I couldn’t continue any earlier than now, […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #47: Manga Sutra, Vol. 2 by Katsu Aki

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 02:04:27 +0000

I believe I’ve had this book on the shelf for ten years, which means it’s one of the small number of things that survived my 2011 flood. (That destroyed my entire basement and somewhere around 4,000 books.) I’m not sure why or how this book survived, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t managed to read […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #46: Museum of Mistakes by Julia Wertz

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 01:55:25 +0000

We all regret our twenties. Some of us regret how quickly we settled down and got boring, and some of us regret that we didn’t settle down and get boring, at all or quickly enough. I’m one of the former; I think Julia Wertz is one of the latter. Museum of Mistakes is the big […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #45: Jack Staff Vol. 1 by Paul Grist

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 01:45:42 +0000

This book has more panels introducing its characters than any comic I’ve ever seen in my life. I know it was originally published as twelve individual issues of the Jack Staff comic, but it’s much more common than that — so often that I started to think this had been serialized somewhere, no more than […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #44: King City by Brandon Graham

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 01:32:56 +0000

For those of you scoring at home, this is the major Brandon Graham comic that does not include a random hardcore sex scene thrown into the middle (The one that does is Multiple Warheads . Graham toiled in the sex-comics vineyards for several years, and one sex-comic idea blossomed or transformed into an idea that […]

Glenn Hauman: Late, As Usual

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 16:00:36 +0000

Mark Evanier has been writing and collecting stories from various other comics editors about freelancers who do or do not get their work in on time, and the motivations for why they might end up delivering late: The artist was a freelancer who worked for many companies and editors. I absolutely sympathize with anyone in […]

The Law Is A Ass #426: Ant-Man Doesn’t Right The Wrongs Of His Trial

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 15:00:09 +0000

I know you think you know where you are but you’re wrong. You’re 8-years old again, sitting in your dentist’s waiting room with a copy of Highlights for Children, looking at the “What’s Wrong?” puzzle on the back cover. Only this time, instead of one large picture full of things that are wrong to find, […]

REVIEW: Gotham by Gaslight

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 22:28:17 +0000

The notion of placing Batman in other times and places seems so obvious now, but when Brian Augustyn first hatched the notion with Mark Waid, it was radical. As Augustyn recounts on the 21 minute Caped Fear: The First Elseworld featurette, it was immediately embraced. So enticing was the concept that when artist Mike Mignola […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #38: Brave by Svetlana Chmakova

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 00:31:52 +0000

I am so glad middle school is far behind me. I even gladder my two sons are past those years as well, and that I don’t expect to have any other kids to shepherd through those years. And I don’t think it’s purely Schadenfreude when I read a story about middle-schoolers — but there might […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #36: Underwire by Jennifer Hayden

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 00:13:43 +0000

Jennifer Hayden is a middle-aged New Jerseyan, telling stories here about her growing kids and family life — so why did it take me so long to get to a 2011 book so close to my own life and experience? (I’m generally all over that stuff: don’t we all love to be validated by art […]

REVIEW: Static Shock the Complete Third Season

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 18:18:34 +0000

Milestone Media’s best-known character, Static, is back in the third volume of his animated adventures after the release of the first two seasons last year. Static Shock was somewhat revolutionary back in the day, featuring an African-American teen super-hero who juggled classes, girls, villains, and parents, not all that dissimilar to a certain wall-crawler. The […]

The Pro– Animated!

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 02:00:16 +0000

For your late-night comics related watching: “The Pro” by Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner, and Jimmy Palmiotti— now animated! (Dear lord, NSFW.) Or read the book.

Book-A-Day 2018 #29: Mr. Higgins Comes Home by Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 22:54:56 +0000

The world might not have expected a homage to The Fearless Vampire Hunters. The world may not have needed a homage to The Fearless Vampire Hunters. The world may not have wanted a homage to The Fearless Vampire Hunters. But the world got one. Mike Mignola has been making comics about vampires (and similarly ghoulish […]

The Law Is A Ass # 425: Ant-Man’s Trial Has Character Flaws

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 14:00:31 +0000

Scott Lang wasn't always a hero-- but can a prosecutor bring up Ant-Man's criminal past at trial?

Book-A-Day 2018 #22: Sex Criminals, Vol. 4 by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 21:36:08 +0000

I have a hard time telling if I’m supposed to take this seriously. I mean, the volume subtitle is “Fourgy,” and there’s a food truck, apparently a franchised operation, called “Wide Wiener,” with a humorously double-entendre theme song. But it also has a melodramatic comic-book plot, and a more kitchen-sinkly dramatic human story. So I […]

Animated Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay hits Home April 10

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 16:26:41 +0000

Book-A-Day 2018 #19: On the Ropes by James Vance and Dan E. Burns

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 21:03:07 +0000

“Aw, this is a sequel to somethin’!” – Crow T. Robot I never read Kings in Disguise. On the Ropes is a sequel to Kings in Disguise. So anyone who is looking for a comparison to Kings in Disguise will be disappointed. Anyone wondering how many consecutive sentences I cram Kings in Disguise into, though, may […]

Book-A-Day 2018 #18: Equinoxes by Pedrosa

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 20:46:21 +0000

The hardest thing, for me, is to write on a book about normal people’s normal lives — without the genre trappings of excitement and violence, without the framework of some standard plot, without being able to do the Hollywood high concept thing of matching a new work with X and Y from the past. When […]

It’s been over thirty years in the making, but it looks like it’s finally going to happen– Kitty Pryde and Peter Rasputin are finally getting married in X-Men Gold #30. All we can say is this: The important question, of course: will it be a Jewish wedding?
