Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Gene Phillips Jul 1, 2021. 33 Replies

Though I wrote for the zine somewhat, I'm not fishing for recognition. But I'm curious if the various brouhahas that involved the magazine ever impacted on your comics reading in any way.Continue

FAVORITE VILLAIN CROSSOVER STORIES

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jeff of Earth-J Oct 19, 2020. 15 Replies

I was going to say "villain teamup" stories, but some stories may bring in two villains and have them fight one another (and maybe the hero) for the whole story.Some of the best include:Debut story…Continue

A friend of mine has been slowly foraging through the early SUPERBOYS thanks to the online site READ COMICS ONLINE, and I thought I would share his insights here, though he's only up to 1956.Many…Continue

"Thanks, Gene! Interesting stuff!And the Greenberger's implication that the comics code chased off costume supervillains seems a little weird to me, considering it was the comics code that wound up cementing super heroes' (and therefore,…"

PARADIGM SCHIFF

Possibly some Silver Age fans here will find this blog essay of interest,______________________On occasion I’ve found fault with the kind of criticism that concentrates only on the “firsts” or the “big events” in comic book history (or in any arena of fiction, genre or otherwise). While no one can read everything— sometimes, not even all the stories centered around an evergreen serial character like Batman—it should be kept in mind, as I mentioned in another essay, that the first Joker story is…See More

"I would say that the most destructive aspect of the Fleischer suit did not pertain to Fleischer, but to the feud that erupted between Groth and Ellison as a result of the legal action. The two of them formed a mutual antipathy during the suit, and…"

"I don't think Fleisher ever contended that Ellison's comments caused him to lose the Spectre job. The suit said Ellison "destroyed his business reputation." One of Fleisher's grievances was that Ellison said DC canceled the…"

Richard Willis replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"An interesting point in the defamation suit was that Fleisher's income went up, not down, following Ellison's statements. Wikipedia reminds me that editor Joe Orlando plotted the Fleisher Spectre stories with him and that it followed…"

Philip Portelli replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"Harlan Ellison is one of the most important literary figures of the 20th century. He had a great fondness for comic books. He was also opinionated, combative and, how do I put this delicately, had a tendency to believe his own clippings a tad much."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Sandra Essien
