Brightest Day’s Black Eye

Titansvillainsforhire01 That didn’t take long, did it?



It seemed like only yesterday that we were celebrating the possibility of shinier, happier stories. Marvel touted their Heroic Age by proclaiming that heroes would act like heroes again. And DC’s Brightest Day seemed to promise the same. At least,

that’s what I recall.



But it didn’t take long… Continue

Native American writers, mischievous gods and comics a natural mix in 'Trickster'

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



June 22,2010 -- Trickster (Fulcrum Books, $22.95) is one of those brilliant ideas that in retrospect is so obvious, people slap their foreheads and say “Why didn’t I think of that?”…

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 12 Blackhawk (Part 2)---A Brief Return to Glory

By the early 1960's, the Blackhawks had lost their cachet as an elite unit of World War II flyers-turned-soldiers of fortune. Realistic settings and a mature perspective had given away to adventures depicting the Black Knights as crime-fighters going up against bug-eyed monsters and lame villains-of-the-month. Under the DC bullet, Blackhawk had become “Blackhawk-Lite”. Veteran fans, who had been there in the meatier days when the series was under… Continue

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 11 Blackhawk (Part 1)---From Hitler to the Hoopster

In 1956, National Periodical Publications, a.k.a. DC Comics, acquired the rights to Quality Comics’ Blackhawk. The adventures of the “Magnificent 7” were still popular with the fans, even though more than ten years had passed since their heyday as World War II Nazi-fighters. So, while N.P.P. allowed most of the other Quality titles it had purchased to die quietly, keeping the Blackhawks in the air seemed to be a bankable proposition.



However, almost…

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 10 Death in the Silver Age: Lady Pamela Hawley, R.I.P

It began in a London air-raid shelter . . . .



“Lord Ha-Ha’s Last Laugh”, from Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos # 4 (Nov., 1963), is best known for being the story in which Howler Junior Juniper was killed in action. The death of a regular featured character stunned the readers and signified a shift in the attitude of the series. Awash in the shock of that development, most fans probably paid little attention to another milestone of that…

100 Greatest Comic Book Characters of the Past 20 Years

At the end of May, Entertainment Weekly came out with their list of the 100 greatest characters of the past 20 years. The list mostly included characters from film and television, though they threw in a few from novels, plays and video games. Inspired by their list, I decided to come up with one of my own: the 100 greatest comic book characters of the past 20 years. These lists are always more debate-inducing…

Deck Log Entry # 105 Widow and Orphan

Last week, I talked about the introduction of the Black Widow and her recurring rôle as an Iron Man foe in Tales of Suspense. She started out as an exotically beautiful seductress who used her feminine wiles as a spy for the Godless Commies. But after only four appearances in the traditional femme-fatale mould, she was “upgraded” to a costumed villainess. Instead of manipulating behind the scenes, Madame Natasha was in the midst of the action and…

Deck Log Entry # 104 A Widow's Peak

Outside of the old serials from the '40's, I'm not what you'd call a connoisseur of super-hero movies. I've seen a few, mostly under protest, like Superman: the Movie, and, most recently, Iron Man (because, believe it or not, the Good Mrs. Benson wanted to see it). But I've given a pass to nearly all the others. But I don't live on the dark side of the moon, either, so I know that the upcoming sequel Iron Man 2 includes a large…
