So this started out as something else. I was inspired by a panel by José Luis García-López. When I think about it now, I am just as confused as to how it got to this point as you may be. I REALLY wanted to capture the dynamic feel of José’sSuperman coming in for a landing. […]
Some of the best comic book-related entertainment has to be DC’s Showcase. One-off episodes of some sometimes obscure characters and groups. While not really tied to any singular continuity, all are very entertaining. I would love to see Challengers of the Unknown given the DCS treatment. The format would make a great anthology series for […]
As of the time of this blog post Sasha is just about my favorite Comic Book Reviewer on YouTube. Her wit and insights are fun and informative and I am here for it all. Being an old man in the comics realm, who is pretty knowledgeable about pre Y2K comics, I find that I have […]
Dentistry Action Comics: I revel in goofy comic book covers from bygone eras. Don’t be like Superman… don’t forget to floss, kids!
Another piece using a Bruce Timm pose. This was my second shot, as the first was too upper-right heavy.

The Hostess with the Mostess Ads… Today we are going to take a look at vintage Hostess advertisements in comic books. There is something about these old advertisements, they were quaint and entertaining. That is the thing about them, the entertainment factor. That sticks with you longer than the empty calories that the content would […]
So when Rob Bricken, formerly of Topless Robot then regular contributor to io9, asked a poignant question… “Why Are Superhero Movies So Much Better Than Superhero Comics?” Some may argue this. I won’t but some might. There are those who think that they are inferior because the stories that the movies convey are just bastardised […]
Remember those awesome days when crossing from one dimensional plane to another was as easy as turning a page? I miss those days. At times the cross-over stories were bat-shit crazy, and that was half the fun. Quality Comics’ Freedom Fighters characters were an interesting acquisition by DC back then and they were used creatively. […]
