Mage Returns, Chaykin Offends, and Fudd Gets Serious: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!

July 18, 2017 // 1 Comment

So I’m feeling a bit tuckered out tonight. Not horribly so, but enough that I just don’t have much to say in the way of catchy titles and clever introductions. Let’s just get this show on the road. Mage: The Hero Denied 0 by Matt Wagner  So wow. Matt Wagner’s finally had enough life experience to write the third volume of Mage. For anyone not familiar with the series, [...]

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 [...]

Blood, Blood, and More Blood: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

October 25, 2016 // 0 Comments

So it’s been a good couple of weeks for funnybooks here lately. Lots of great books well-worth discussing. But unfortunately, I’m going on vacation this week, and don’t have time to cover it all. So I’ll have to hit the highlights, centering on the Halloween-appropriate theme of blood… The Black Monday Murders 3 by Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker I think I may have [...]

Black Mondays and Batmen: Catching Up With Late Summer’s Funnybooks

September 11, 2016 // 0 Comments

So you all have my apologies for the technical difficulties last week. Truth be told, they were less “technical” difficulties than they were “fatigue” difficulties. Busy times at my work and a nagging foot injury have simply left me with little energy to write of late. Such is life. But let’s face it: I’m way behind on reviews. At this point, there’s no way to catch up [...]

Vigilantes, Spies, and Batman: Highlights From a Month of Wednesdays

August 23, 2016 // 0 Comments

So I’ve been putting this off and putting this off, but now… I’ve got some catching up to do. There’s easily a full month’s worth of unreviewed funnybooks sitting on my desk (maybe more), and I’ve gotta knock that stack down. Don’t know if I’ll get to it all tonight, but we’re gonna give it a shot. So, without further ado… [...]

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 [...]

KING BATMAN!

June 22, 2016 // 1 Comment

TOM King’s Batman, to be precise… Batman: Rebirth 1 by Tom King, Scott Snyder, and Mikel Janin Batman 1 by Tom King and David Finch As discussed last week, I’ve recently become rather fond of the work of writer Tom King. And as discussed at some length on any number of occasions in the past, I have always loved me some Batman. So Tom King writing Batman would seem to be a [...]

Late to the Party: Catching Up With Tom King

June 15, 2016 // 1 Comment

So I pride myself on being able to spot comics I’ll like, and avoid comics I won’t. And I’m not often wrong. But sometimes I do make a bad call, and have to play catch up. Recently, I’ve done that with writer Tom King. I’d heard a good buzz around the guy last year, but when I sampled a comic from him, I decided that it was a little too disjointed, and gave his stuff [...]
