“Quote From Deadwood” – David Milch, Western Comic Recommendations

A reader requested more Western Comic Book recommendations. I’m honestly a little lacking in that area, but here goes: Scalped by Jason Aaron and R. M. Guéra. I’ve only read the first volume of this series, and it may be better to classify in as a modern western noir than a straight up western, but it’s […]

Folks Talkin’ Bout Comics 2 (Resisting Electric Boogaloo Joke): Transmetropolitan Volumes 3-4

This is something resembling a feature, “Folks Talkin Bout Comics,” where I’m joined by a friend via Google Chat to talk about a comic book that we both enjoy. Maybe it’ll entice you to read this comic, maybe not. In the case of Transmetropolitan, by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson, it’s a book that inspires […]

I Do Not Even Know How This Got Out The Door, Defenders #1-6

Seriously, this is one of those books that I can’t believe Marvel has published. I’m not trying to say that in a stuck up manner, but they’re a fairly conservative publisher when it comes to trying new or expiremental things and it’s just so…weird and fun. Credits! Defenders is written by Matt Fraction! I have […]

Zombie Westerns Are The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Of Genre Mashups

In real life, when bored, distracted, or annoyed, I will wish upon a star for zombies. This started soon after playing Resident Evil 2 in 1998, which began my love affair with zombies. I would sit in class, or at work, and ponder what I would do if a zombie outbreak were to occur at […]

Stuff I Bought, Week of 9/15/12 (SUPER VALUE EDITION!)

First off, I bought the latest issue of Saga, which was not really a new comic, but the price dropped on Comixology, so I purchased it! And then wrote about it, along with the previous two issues, here! But on it’s own, issue six is a nice bridge from the world building that’s been going on […]

Saga Issues 4-6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples…For Reals This Time!

So, I got sidetracked last time, by some well drawn, and some might say hilariously drawn, female anatomy. And my own immaturity. But, I’ll make the claim that I was actually stalling for the 6th issue of Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples to come out! These three issues continue to build a […]

“Would you prefer yellow spandex?” LOL, Movie Cyclops! New X-Men by Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely, Etc

There’s two things I really love about Grant Morrison’s New X-Men and BOTH of them begin with the letter U. But first, for those  hearing about X-Men and mutants for the first time, mutants are super-powered beings whose mutations (super powers or deformities) manifest at puberty. The X-Men are a team founded by Professor Charles Xavier […]

(Insert other teen rebellion song) OR, Morning Glories by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma

So let’s kickoff with the “Why you should read Morning Glories if you’ve liked X” portion of things first. If you’ve dipped your toes, or gone all in for television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, Supernatural, etc. Really if you’ve enjoyed character based Sci-Fi or Fantasy in general, this could be for […]

Casanova: Gula or Bear With Me As I Talk About Comics and Emotions

I’m going to do something weird here, so bear with me. Ok, ready to indulge me? Of course you are! I’m not going to start with the beginning, or with the most recent volume. Today, we’re talking about Casanova: Gula, the second of three volumes of Matt Fraction, Gabriel Ba and Fabion Moon’s Casanova series. […]
