From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 36 "But I Always Thought . . . "---the Man of Steel

Stan Lee, as the sole editor and principal writer for Marvel, was able to maintain a tight continuity for all of his characters, even when they appeared in other titles.  This was an advantage over Silver-Age DC, which grouped its titles under various editors.  If a DC hero crossed over into another editor’s title, rarely did that character bring his continuity baggage with…

TV's 'Walking Dead' diverges sharply from the comics

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

You know your annoying friend who’s always telling you what’s going to happen next on The Walking Dead because he or she has read the comics? Well, that’s not going to be a problem any more.

 

With the Season Three finale that aired March 31, the Walking Dead TV show has now veered so far away from the Walking Dead comic book that they are the same story…

Deck Log Entry # 155 The Silver-Age Challenge---Marvel Edition II . . . Answers!

Man oh man!  I don’t know if it’s because my questions were a bit too easy or because Jeff of Earth-J is a dyed-in-the-wool Silver-Age Marvel expert (I suspect it’s an admix of both), but he nailed most of the correct answers right out of the gate.  And of the two he missed, Philip Portelli picked up half the slack by correctly identifying the right name in question number…

Valiant's first three titles launch them onto A-list

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

I hope I’m not jinxing it, but I’m going to call the new Valiant Comics a success story.

 

The original Valiant Entertainment exploded on the scene in 1989 and quickly became the third largest comics publisher in America. But the company was sold to Acclaim in 1994, and management indifference and industry changes contributed to Valiant throwing in the towel by…

Writer Scott Snyder scores with bats, vampires

Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

DC Comics has released another clutch of books collecting stories from its superhero and horror lines, and master storyteller Scott Snyder has a gem in both Column A and Column B.

 

American Vampire Volume Five ($29.99) is my favorite, which should come as no…

Deck Log Entry # 154 The Silver-Age Challenge---Marvel Edition II

See?  I didn’t forget.  It’s just that when it comes to Marvel Comics and trivia, things are a little tougher for me. 

 

Part of it is, no doubt, because I didn’t get into Marvel until late in the game, around 1965 or so.  I picked up all of those niggling bits of DC trivia  pretty much by osmosis, because I was there from the beginning.  But with Marvel, I had…

Robin's dead. So what else is new?

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Yes, it’s true what you’ve read all over the Internet: Robin is dead.  But there are a lot of reasons not to get too upset about it, and at least one good reason to be upbeat.

 

For one thing, this isn’t THE Robin with which most people are familiar. That would be…

Kim Thompson diagnosed with cancer

This statement from Kim Thompson was provided by Eric Reynolds at Fantagraphics:

 

I'm sure that by now a number of people in the comics field who deal with me on a regular or semi-regular basis have noticed that I've been responding more spottily. This is because of ongoing health issues for the past month, which earlier this week resolved themselves in a diagnosis of lung cancer.

 

This is still very early in the diagnosis, so I have no…

'Lenore' creator injured, fund set up

Hey, fellow Legionnaires! This e-mail arrived from Katharine Carroll, who does U.S. publicity for English publisher Titan Books. I've worked with Katharine for years, so I trust the source. Which is dire news, indeed:

 

Roman Dirge, creator and illustrator of the Lenore comic book series, and his girlfriend Amber were injured in a hit-and-run accident in Hollywood, CA, on February 26, 2013. One of Dirge's legs was severely damaged, but he is said to be in good…

Bridging the Jock/Nerd Divide

We never really get over high school, do we? Those old cliques and old resentments still rear their heads in the most unlikely places. Jocks still pick on nerds, making them the target of their jokes and their ire. Nerds, however, now fight back. Freed from the fear of being shoved into a locker, nerds are as likely to sling insults at jocks as vice versa.

I was…
