"Clearly, the Black Panther series is a huge hit -- eight of the 10 best-selling individual issues sold at the store were from that series, and the ninth was from spinoff title World of Wakanda!"

Comic book sales trends in 2016

My friendly neighborhood comics shop, Fantom Comics of Washington, DC, breaks down what sold at the store in 2016. This information, of course, applies only to the one store, but it's still interesting reading: "2016 In Review – A Comic Book Shop Talks Comic Book Sales Trends"See More

"Another thing about the Grundy-Archie thing: It's possibly a way out of doing the Archie-Betty-Veronica triangle. Mark Waid's Archie starts with Veronica moving to Riverdale just after longtime couple Archie and Betty have broken up.…"

"I think something that was at least somewhat comedic should have been tried. I think something like Jane the Virgin might have been the way to go, but then, the CW already has Jane the Virgin, so they might not have wanted a clone."

"I saw him interviewed recently. He said that the bat-suit needed some ventilation, etc, and that it was going to be tough for him to give the right attention to directing when he was miserably hot. That could be the main reason."

Ten years ago today ...

Posted on February 20, 2011 at 7:56pm 19 Comments

On this day 10 years ago, I was in an accident that totaled my car. I am grateful today for three things: 



That I was in the car by myself; I doubt a passenger would have survived.



That I walked away from it whole; save for some pain in my side that lasted about a week, I was and remain physically sound.



That God saw fit to spare me, that I may carry on in this world and be the husband, father and person He wants me to be.

 

I am also grateful to have…

President Luthor (from the old board)

Posted on September 21, 2009 at 10:30am 9 Comments

From the old board, I launched the "President Luthor" thread with this post (July 21, 2003):





At my last visit to my friendly neighborhood comics shop, I say the President Luthor trade paperback. I haven't read the Superman titles for several years (heresy, I know), and the notion of Lex Luthor becoming President of the U.S. wasn't enough to entice me back.



It's a nifty idea, I'll admit ... but the time to do it was very shortly after the… Continue

Bugs Bunny, the greatest baseball player ever

Posted on August 18, 2009 at 2:49pm 3 Comments

I just ran across this sportswriter's analysis of "Baseball Bugs," the classic Looney Tunes short in which Bugs Bunny takes on the Gas House Gorillas all by himself -- starting in the fourth inning of a game in which the Gorillas are leading the Tea Totallers 54-0 -- and wins 96-95. It's funny because it's so, so serious ... "Bugs Bunny, Greatest Banned Player Ever"
