Back in the Saddle: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

January 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

So here we are again, reviewing funnybooks. Been awhile. Longer than I’d intended, honestly. But I need to recharge my batteries on these things every so often, and I guess the last month or two has been my time to do that. So let’s see if we can’t hit the ground running now that we’re back… Jessica Jones 3 by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos I’ve been [...]

Baggin’ Time! A Look Back at Recent Comics Before Sealing Them Away in Plastic Forever

November 15, 2016 // 0 Comments

So it’s funnybook bagging time here on the nerd farm. This is a task, much like harvesting the crops, that I undertake only once or twice a year. I could keep up with it weekly pretty easy, I suppose. Just buy a bag along with each new comic, and stuff ’em in as I read. But that seems like too much fuss. Besides… There’s so much space in a funnybook bag. Putting anything [...]

Comedy! Violence! Despair! Batman!

July 12, 2016 // 0 Comments

So normally I’d preface this with a pithy introductory paragraph. But this time, I think the title says it all… Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses 16 by David Lapham  Holy shit what a great comic! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a Stray Bullets more in quite some time. It furthers the on-going story of Beth and Orson’s master plan to free Nina and run off with a whole [...]

Dork Awards 2014, Part Three: Best Funnybook

January 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

And here we are, back for the final installment of the 2014 Dork Awards. I have to admit, much as I wanted to avoid this thing getting repetitious, it still got away from me. Between the previous categories, and all the reviews of these books I’ve written over the course of the year, I couldn’t escape the feeling that I’ve said all this stuff before. Ah, well. Such is the way of [...]

ANOTHER Great Week for Funnybooks

September 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

So… Did I say that last week saw the release of so many good funnybooks that I was worried about the rest of the month? I did? Yeah. Yeah, just forget about that… Multiversity: Society of Super-Heroes, by Grant Morrison and Chris Sprouse I thought the first issue of Multiversity was a bit tired. We’ve seen so many alternate versions of so many characters in the last decade that [...]

Old Magic, Young Love, and a Giant Gorilla: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

June 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

This week’s funnybooks this week! And lookit me! Click-Baitin’ the fanboys by leading with a shiny bit of corporate spandex craziness! New Avengers Annual 1, by Frank Barbiere and Marco Rudy I will be 100% brutally honest with you here: I bought this funnybook for the art. The art, and the promise of what looked like it might be a decent Dr. Strange solo story. Because, hey. I love [...]

Murderous Miracle Bastards: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

May 22, 2014 // 2 Comments

Been busy times around the nerd farm here lately, and we’ve gotten behind. Some of these funnybooks have gotten a little stale – in fact, there’s already another issue out of the first one – so let’s get this thing going before the mold sets in… Miracleman 5, by Alan Moore and Alan Davis This issue features one of my favorite moments from the series, and– Actually, [...]

Something New, Something Different: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!

April 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

So I got these funnybooks here, and I thought I might, like, review ’em or somethin’. You know. For a change of pace… Stray Bullets: Killers 2, by David Lapham I was a bit surprised this issue to see the series return to Virginia Applejack so soon. I mean, she’s been a constant presence in the book, even when she wasn’t its main character, so I don’t know why I [...]

STRAY BULLETS, MUTHA– Ahem. Stray Bullets: A Fine Comics Reading Experience

March 20, 2014 // 0 Comments

Stray Bullets Über Alles Edition Stray Bullets 41 Stray Bullets: Killers 1 by David Lapham So as my… rather enthusiastic… early review of the above books may have indicated, I’m pretty damn excited about the return of Stray Bullets. But it wasn’t until Sunday morning that my level of enthusiasm really sank in. I got up, took a shower, pulled on a t-shirt, and then [...]
