From Turkmenistan to Eclipso (with a 'Festering Romance' in between)

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Oct. 27, 2009 -- Most of us have never wanted to go to Turkmenistan, nor could we find it on a map. But the graphic novel Joe and Azat ($10.95, NBM/ComicsLit) depicts it as an awfully interesting place.



The Joe of the title is a Peace Corps volunteer, and Azat is the Turkmen who befriends the American during his two-year hitch. Joe is based on writer/artist Jesse Lonergan (Flower & Fade),… Continue

Stark Disassembled!

For those not reading Invincible Iron Man, things just keep getting worse for Tony Stark. Here's a press release and some images for the issue coming out Nov. 18.



I've already blogged about "Stark Disassembled" once, so I confess the real reason I threw this up was to practice posting multiple pieces of art. Since I seem to have figured it out, that raises the question: Would you folks like to see more of this sort of PR? And if so, where? As blog posts on the front page? In a… Continue

Daken's revenge!

Here's a press release from Marvel along with some nice art. But that's not the only reason I'm posting it. Something occurred to me as I was looking at the art, that I can't figure out. Maybe it's been explained. But here's my question (actually two): One way you can tell Daken from Logan in the Wolverine suit is the elaborate tattoos on Daken's left arm. So riddle me this: How do you tattoo a guy with a healing factor? And wouldn't his hair grow back from that mohawk cut, like, every five… Continue

Clearing the Cupboards 8 - Never to be forgotten

Every so often, the powers that be at DC comics decide to reshape their world in some sort of crisis – from Crisis on Infinite Earths, to the Infinite Crisis and the obvious Final Crisis. When this happens, to coin the vernacular, “Worlds Live!! Worlds Die!!” – But what happens to the characters that are left behind, and who decides their fate? Welcome to the… Continue

My Crazy Blog - A Dollhouse Update

Mainstream network television is not a good incubator of unique and "quirky" shows like Josh Whedon's Dollhouse on Fox. Fox has just announced it is pulling Dollhouse off the air during the key ratings month of November. The show is set to resume airing on December 4th, with the long-awaited Summer Glau episode. The schedule change is all but the kiss of death for network television. And it's so sad, because last week Dollhouse finally started to live up to its promise as… Continue

I Like Ham 9: Smashing Fun!

Well, Steve, I suspect you may have wondered if I'd given up on the whole "blogging" thing. Not so, it was more a

combination of having a good chunk of my time watching and commenting upon The Time Tunnel, combined with my recent

purchase of a Wii. Years ago, the game that prompted me to buy an N64 was Super Smash Brothers. Some time after

that, the game that prompted me to buy a GameCube was Super Smash Brothers Melée. So, I imagine that it will come… Continue

Classy 'Sandman' fable, Oni noir, Isabella's '1000' and 'Time Tunnel' get thumb's up

Gaiman is the award-winning author of a jillion award-winning works, from the original Sandman comic-book series, to the BBC miniseries Neverwhere, to… Continue

Clearing the Cupboards 7 - Leftovers Night

When I last put a piece of text here, we left Captain Nathaniel Adam hovering over a devastated city in his world and wondering what was going on. In oh so many ways, there are a few of us who wish that had never ever being answered, because the answer was a series that certainly raised more questions than answers.

Comics that Should Make a Comeback: Martian Manhunter

Martian-manhunter It wasn’t easy to think of a DC title that should make a comeback. They bring back their titles so often that I have more opinions about which concepts should be given an extended vacation than I do about which titles should come back. But there is one very notable…

Deck Log Entry # 92 Persistence of Villain: the Silver-Age JLA's Most Stubborn Foes (Part 2)

Doctor Destiny intended to be a master thief, but the Justice League of America stopped him before he could steal his first valuable. After that, he spent the rest of his Silver-Age career trying to destroy the League from his jail cell. He never did make that big score.

My Crazy Blog-Six Degrees of Separation Too Close--Or What Happens When You Find An Ex's Wedding Photos on Facebook

I am a relatively new devotee to social networking, but in the few short months I have been on Facebook, I have taken to it like a duck to the fountain in the Peabody Hotel lobby. I have to admit it is a guilty pleasure of mine to browse my friends' profiles and also look at friends' of friends' profiles (I'm sure I'm not the only one who does it!). I was innocently doing just that the other night when I discovered that a friend of a Facebook friend is married to an ex-boyfriend of mine. This… Continue
