More Turok, more Fables and Cinderella: Superspy

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



My name is Andrew Smith, and I am a comic-book junkie.



Of course I’ve always suspected it. But with Turok, Son of Stone Archives Vol. 4 ($49.95, Dark Horse), I can no longer deny it.



For those only… Continue

Kurt Busiek’s Ten Best Books

10917_400x600 One of my favorite comic book writers is Kurt Busiek. He’s one of the storytellers who pulled me back into comics in the mid-‘90s and his work has given me countless hours of enjoyment since then.…

Deck Log Entry # 94 Happy Thanksgiving 2009!

I have to confess to a heresy.



I have no interest in televised football on Thanksgiving Day.



While the rest of you alpha males start boiling your oil and sharpening your pitchforks, I may as well admit that I don't really have any love for any televised sports. Except for baseball. I like watching baseball on television. But that's it.…

All of October, Part Two

13172_400x600 Last week, I started to review every comic book that I bought in October, seeing as I bought them all in one visit at the end of the month. But there’s only so much I can write in one sitting. And I’m figuring there’s only so much you can read. So here’s the second half of my column reviewing…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



It is said that Garth Ennis is the best writer of World War II stories in the comics biz today, and Battlefields ($29.99, Dynamite Entertainment) is convincing evidence of that reputation.…

Deck Log Entry # 93 Persistence of Villain: the Silver-Age JLA's Most Stubborn Foes (Part 3)

In winding up my look at the Silver-Age Justice League’s most persistent foes, we turn to one villain who tried to destroy the League the hard way. Or the smart way, depending on how you look at it.



Doctor Light, “that luminous wizard”, has experienced his ups and downs as a credible super-villain. By the early 1980’s, under the handling of later writers, Dr. Light had been transformed into a pompous… Continue

All of October, Recent Reviews

Act882 With house guests four weekends in a row, I didn’t make it to the comic book store during the month of October. The silver lining is that I had a month’s worth of comics waiting for me when I finally showed up. That gives me the perfect opportunity to assess my current pull list and share some…

Content, content, content!

I've added more stuff in the last couple of days I want to draw attention to, since some of it may not be obvious:



* I've added two videos provided by Marvel. One is a Silver Surfer bio for The Superhero Squad Show, and the other is a clip from episode 2 of the Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic. Both are in the "Videos" section.…

'Luna Park,' 'House of Secrets,' 'High Moon' and 'Tek Jansen'



November 10, 2009 -- Luna Park will haunt you.



A graphic novel by best-selling author Kevin Baker (Dreamland) and artist Daniel Zezelj (Loveless), Luna Park (Vertigo, $24.99) begins as a noir crime thriller but expands into historical fiction and dystopic dreamlike scenarios, stretching through… Continue

New toys and features on Captain Comics ... plus a fresh lemon scent!

The Captain has been a busy beaver.



I've added press release text, art and video going back to August in the "Comics News" group. Go look -- it's well over 100 articles, with accompanying art and video! And I will continue to update virtually daily, as new PR comes in (including monthly solicitations). So now there's no reason to go to other sites for info and toys that are available to all. Captain Comics has officially become one-stop shopping.



But while the "Comics… Continue

Marvel's "The Siege" -- video, text and art

Marvel's "Dark Reign" is apparently coming to a head in the coming months, with a storyline called "The Siege." The PR has been coming fast and furious, including art, text and video. Here's what I've got so far.



P.S. Note this disclaimer from Marvel and please comply, no matter what kind of hacker whiz you are:



The video shouldn’t be made downloadable to your readers, nor should it be altered in any way. Doing either will result in a request to pull the video from your… Continue

EC Archives, Legion of Super-Heroes, Unknown Soldier: Still kicking!

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov, 3, 2009 -- Forget turning lemons into lemonade; I’m beginning to think writer Geoff Johns can turn lemons into fine wine.



Johns has gained a reputation for fixing characters that have become radioactive because various revamps have made their histories too convoluted. He did it with Hawkman, he did it with the 1960s Green Lantern and Flash, and now he’s doing it with the Legion of… Continue
