A Matter of Timing

MARVEL_SWORD_4_by_Deadlydelmundo Marvel Comics recently announced the cancellation of one of my favorite new titles: SWORD. I’m not angry about it. I saw the sales numbers and knew it wasn’t long for this world. But it’s still a little disappointing.…

Constantine romps again in Vertigo's 'Pandemonium'

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Jan. 26, 2010 -- Most people use the word “pandemonium” to describe a disorganized, noisy scene. But in Milton’s Paradise Lost, it’s the capital of Hell – which makes it an appropriate title for a graphic novel starring DC’s John Constantine.



Hellblazer: Pandemonium (DC/Vertigo, $24.99) is written by Jamie Delano, who guided the trickster mage through the early run of his title… Continue

Alan Moore's 'Swamp Thing': Sex and horror in the fen

By Andrew A. Smith

Deck Log Entry # 97 War-Horses of a Different Colour

In the society of Silver-Age mavens, there are Sergeant Rock fans and Sergeant Fury fans, and seldom does the twain meet. In a nutshell, the Rock fans find DC's World War II stories of Easy Company and its indomitable top-kick to be slices of the grim reality of war, while they regard Marvel's Sergeant Fury and his Howling Commandos as little more than super-heroes in G.I. khaki, not to be taken seriously. To Fury fans, that is the whole point; the escapades… Continue

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Fox is promoting its new show Human Target (debuting Jan. 17) pretty heavily. And why not? It’s another property based on a comic book, and those seem to be doing well these days.
