Countdown to Halloween 2018

October 29, 2018 // 0 Comments

So we’re on Halloween vacation this week, and as such aren’t really around to deliver the usual long-winded enthusiasm. So instead, we’re just going to direct you over to our social media, where we’ve been sort of unofficially participating in the annual Countdown to Halloween with a new comics-related Halloween post every day. Usually, it’s just a piece of artwork, but sometimes there’s a little story to go with it. Somewhere in there, we even put up the [...]

The Weird and the Wonderful: Some Alternative Picks for the Fantastic Four Relaunch

April 24, 2018 // 5 Comments

So we were talking about the upcoming Fantastic Four relaunch down at my local funnybook store recently. Which, yeah, if you haven’t heard… They’re relaunching Fantastic Four this summer, in a new series by Dan Slott and Sarah Pichelli. And that… …was what we were talking about. I made the off-hand comment that I will, of course, be giving it a shot, but that Slott and Pichelli wouldn’t have been my first pick for the creative team. One of my buddies kind of [...]

A Random Collection of Images For Your Edification and Enjoyment

April 17, 2018 // 2 Comments

So time and energy have been in short supply on the nerd farm lately. Allergies, taxes, busy days… We just couldn’t get the usual long-winded essay done. Which means it’s time to post up a bunch of pretty, pretty pictures. A lot of these are things we’ve shared over on the Dork Forty Facebook page, so folks who follow us there may have seen some of this before. But there’s other stuff mixed in, as well, so hopefully there’s something new for everybody here. [...]

Horror, Blood, and Pretty Pretty Pictures: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

May 16, 2017 // 1 Comment

So the stack of unreviewed funnybooks on my desk is getting pretty big. I’ve been concentrating on long-form reviews of single books here lately, along with dork movies and TV shows that have sparked my interest. And with the debut of the revived Twin Peaks next week, I’ll soon have even more non-comics-related stuff to talk about. If I’m gonna whittle that stack down in any reasonable fashion, I’m gonna have to do it now. So here we go. In capsule format… With [...]

THE PURGE! Part the Fourth: Letting Go

August 19, 2014 // 1 Comment

It’s funny, but the deeper I get into the Great Funnybook Purge, the easier it’s becoming to let go. I may have mentioned last time that I was pricing out my Alan Moore Swamp Thing run. And, sure… I’ve got all those in book form (hardcovers, even). There’s no way in hell I’d be letting them go if that wasn’t an option. But, still… I’m selling my Alan Moore Swamp Things. The enormity of that is staggering. I was in eighth or ninth grade when [...]

Dork Awards: The 25 Greatest Super Heroes of All Time (Part Two)

After a day of wrestling with WordPress, our list of the 25 Greatest Spandex Characters of All Time continues! Please forgive any layout problems or typos. It’s been a difficult posting. Part One can be found here, or you can jump right in below. Just remember: one dork’s opinion, nobody will ever agree with every pick, etc etc… 14. The Flash A character whose enduring appeal, I think, is the thrill of speed, the freedom represented by the amazing power of Runs Fast. [...]
