In this crappy economic climate, I find it soothing to think back to a more fruitful era, like the 1980s. It seemed possible that we could all someday sleep on a pile of money, since even children like Richie Rich were ridiculously wealthy. Computers were going to solve all of our problems. Soon a pill would [...]

Man, the Teen Titans creep me out. Like, every other page I come across a panel that makes me feel like a dirty voyeur. I don’t need to know this much about the Titans and their kinky sexual escapades. Cyborg builds a hologram projector, and this is the first thing he thinks of to do [...]

I’ve been known to complain about the current Superman/Batman series, because it is so crappy. But sometimes you just gotta pull out an old issue of World’s Finest to remind yourself that it wasn’t all solid gold either. This issue is many things, but mainly: a) Melodramaticb) Ridiculousc) Romantic It takes place during that angst-ridden [...]

Due to popular demand, I have decided to make Ted Kord the celebrated hunk of the week. We’ll see how he stacks up next to his pal, Booster Gold. So, let’s check out another fallen super hunk, Ted Kord, aka The Blue Beetle Costume/Appearance: This is a great costume. There are two things I really [...]

Phew. I’m done with photo posts for awhile. Let’s get back to what really matters: hilarious Batman panels. This panel just gets funnier and funnier the more I look at it: Batman takes time to do the little things: Wait. That’s the clock in the Batmobile?! It’s a dial clock! In case what you’re wondering [...]

If I ever meet Steve Ditko (unlikely), these are what I am asking him to sign: Oh, don’t let the halfway decent cover art fool you. The art in these books is completely phoned in. Look at them! They look like I drew them! When I was six! With my feet! This is my favourite [...]

I’d like to take a moment to share a memory of Captain America. In his life he stood as a living symbol of freedom and courage. And when it came to rockin’ the body to the b-beat, he was down by law. Captain America: Soldier. Leader. Hero. Breaker.

And now I give you The Laziest Fight of All Time: Courtesy of Justice League of America no. 200 (art by Gil Kane). There’s such a thing as being too dependent on your power ring, Hal.

If you answered ‘a lot,’ you are correct. Local comic book kingpin, Cal Johnston, was kind enough to give me a copy of Superman Annual no. 9 because he knows I love nothing more than an elaborate Batman prank played on Superman. This is a well-timed gift because I have been wanting to post about [...]
