Psychos and Wonder Women: Grant Morrison’s Latest Strikes a Chord

October 9, 2018 // 0 Comments

So it’s been kind of a busy week here on the nerd farm. We’re not entirely sure where all the time went, but one thing’s for sure: it’s definitely gone. Which means we’ve only got time to talk about one book this week. But it’s a doozy… Wonder Woman: Earth One vol. 2 by Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette  In this second volume of his “Earth One” [...]

The Comics That Made Me, Part Two

August 28, 2018 // 2 Comments

So this week we’re right in the middle of doing the dorkiest thing possible: making a list of funnybooks we like! The idea (taken from a social media challenge thing) is to make a list of ten comics that had an influence on me, and that I still enjoy reading today. I covered the first half of that last week, with comics from my childhood and adolescence. And we’re wrapping it up this [...]

Pax Americana: The Watchmen Sequel Done Right

October 18, 2017 // 2 Comments

So I’m feeling a tiny bit under the weather this week, and will have to keep this short. That’s okay, though. Because I have a clever plan… As you may or may not remember, last week’s column was a take-down of the Doomsday Clock ashcan, Geoff Johns’ completely-missing-the-point sequel/response to Watchmen. But as I said then, I hate to be a hater. So I thought that [...]

Just Another White Guy Talking About Feminism and Race

April 13, 2016 // 1 Comment

What an embarrassment of funnybook riches last week: Grant Morrison’s long-awaited Wonder Woman: Earth One, the comics debut of journalist Ta-Nehesi Coates on Black Panther, and the latest issue of Alan Moore’s Providence. So… That’s a comic about a feminist icon, a comic about the first black super hero, and a comic about a massively influential horror author who never [...]

All Good Things…

January 19, 2016 // 0 Comments

So I read way too many funnybooks on my recent vacation to talk about them all. But I did notice something of a trend: lots of books coming to an end, and lots of other books starting up anew. Fitting for New Year’s, I suppose. But whatever the cause, it made picking which books to discuss a whole lot easier. So let’s start with the endings, and move on from there. And I suppose we [...]

Tales of Gods and Trannies: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

July 8, 2015 // 2 Comments

Three books to discuss this week, bound by themes of heroism and the divine… 18 Days by Grant Morrison and Jeevan Kang This is kind of a curious project. It was originally conceived as an animated series offering a sci-fi fantasy take on the Hindu epic the Mahabharata. As far as I know, that version of the project never materialized. But an illustrated script book was released about five [...]

A Month of Wednesdays

June 16, 2015 // 0 Comments

So while I’ve been off writing about Avengers comics for the the past four weeks, the funnybook industry had the temerity to continue releasing books! Da noive a some peeple! But, ah well. What’s a reviewer to do, except take a deep breath and bear up under their pulpy weight? So here you go: all the funnybooks for a month of Wednesdays. Or the highlights thereof, anyway… [...]
