'Art of Neal Adams' revisits artist's bombshell arrival in comics

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Neal Adams changed how comic books were drawn in America.

 

I still remember the first time I saw his artwork. It was in the late 1960s, and I was familiar with…

The Best of Lost

When this column debuts, I should be enjoying a family vacation in Italy and France.  I’m taking a break from everything- work, softball, household chores and even comic books.  It seems appropriate that “Fluit Notes” takes a break from comic books as well.  Therefore, in this week’s column and next, I’ve written…

'Kevin Keller' miniseries explores a character, not a cause

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Archie’s Kevin Keller is a first in a lot of ways. He’s the first openly gay teenager in Riverdale. He’s the first Archie character to spin off into his own eponymous miniseries. Heck, that four-issue miniseries is itself a first for Archie Comics; they’ve never done one before.

Deck Log Entry # 127 The Silver-Age Challenge---Marvel Comics Edition . . . Answers!

O.K., folks---time’s up!  Put down your pencils and hand your papers in.

 

Actually, I was quite impressed with the posters who chimed in with responses.  Out of all ten questions, only one wasn’t correctly answered.  At least, not with the absolutely, positively proper answer.  However, even that one…

Uninspiring Leads

The other day, I watched part of a Burn Notice marathon.  USA was highlighting episodes of its popular series in anticipation of a prequel movie about supporting character Sam Axe.  It was the middle of the afternoon and I had nothing better to do so I sat down and watched for a…

Revived, rejuvenated Green Lantern heads for the big screen

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Green Lantern, who gets his first big-budget movie June 17, was my favorite DC Comics superhero as a child. Given the loving care lavished on the character in recent years, he’s my favorite once again.

 

Hal Jordan was introduced in1959, at the beginning of the space age. He was allegedly based on Chuck Yeager, the legendary test pilot, and everything about him was sleek, cool and hip.…

'X-Men: First Class' turns stories from comics upside down

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

X-Men: First Class, the X-movie that premiered June 3, has been getting rave reviews. But it can be confusing to anyone familiar with the characters – because it’s not THE X-Men origin, it’s AN X-Men origin.

I Like Ham 11: What Should a Blog Post Be?

As some of you may remember, I used to post blog entries here, shortly after we fist moved to the Ning site. Some of you may have noticed that after awhile, I stopped.  Since no one asked me why I stopped, I assumed that this was not a matter of general interest, and so never offered any explanation for the stoppage.  However, it's something that has been on my mind on-and-off ever since, and so I'm posting today - not, I hasten to add, in hopes of provoking a clamor for me to start…

Deck Log Entry # 126 The Silver-Age Challenge---Marvel Comics Edition

As promised, at the end of last year, this Silver-Age Challenge covers Marvel Comics.  Frankly, coming up with ten interesting, suitably difficult, Google-resistant questions proved to be a lot tougher than I expected.  I had set my target time for posting a Marvel quiz for June of this year, roughly six months…

Groups, and other improvements: Everyone please read!

Howdy, Legionnaires!

 

We've been on the Ning site for a while now, and I think it's time to assess if it's doing all we like, and what improvements we can make. I've had a couple of ideas buzzing around in my head for a while, and I'd like to run them by you.

 

1) GROUPS

When we started the Ning site, we Moderators were kinda baffled as to what to do with the "Groups" function. They looked to be redundant to the way material would naturally arrange itself…
