Deck Log Entry # 158 The Silver-Age Challenge---the Legion of Super-Heroes Edition

I try to accommodate my readers.  Sometimes, it’s a snap, especially when the reader himself provides the inspiration, such as when Commando Cody raised the question of why Lightning Lad wasn’t held to task for killing Zaryan the Conqueror.

 

Other times, the sailing's not so smooth.  Figserello has been waiting for me to do a piece on Animal Man.  The hold-up…

Adaptation of 'Don Quixote' will make you LOL for real

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

It’s always difficult to translate a classic work from one medium to another. But with The Complete Don Quixote (SelfMadeHero, $27.50), English illustrator Rob Davis not only makes it look easy, he makes it hilarious.

 

Credit where it’s due: The…

The Many Armors of Iron Man (and 'Iron Man 3')

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

May 14, 2013 -- When a movie makes nearly a billion dollars worldwide in a week, and has the second highest opening weekend in U.S. history, it’s worth a second column. So even though I wrote about The Mandarin in Iron Man 3 last week, I’m still getting questions about Tony Stark and his armored alter ego. Let’s answer a few:

 

Q: If Iron Man 3 had the…

Dynamite Fizzles – Again

Two years ago, Dynamite launched a limited series to great fanfare.  Kirby: Genesis would feature characters from Kirby’s late career foray into independent comics, like Captain Victory and Silver Star, and even a few discarded ideas that had never seen publication before, like Tiger 28 and Midnight Swan.  Kurt Busiek, whose history with Jack Kirby’s characters goes…

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 37 Mars or Bust!

I haven’t bought a comic book, at least not a current one, in over two decades.  But that doesn’t mean my head is in the sand when it comes to what the popular things are.  Fora like the Captain Comics message board keep me posted on that; I may not know the bit-and-piece details, but I am privy to the general ideas.  And one of the things which has vaguely amused me over the…

Iron Man's Mandarin born of America's embarrassing 'Yellow Peril'

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Iron Man 3 brings us The Mandarin, once the Armored Avenger’s greatest foe in the comics. But The Mandarin on the screen is considerably different than his comic-book counterpart, which I think even most comics fans will agree is a good thing.

 

The Mandarin…
