Deck Log Entry # 129 Look! It's the Nut Who Walks Around in Pyjamas

Those of you who have been regular Deck Log followers have seen me discuss the mid-‘60’s phenomenon known as “Batmania” a few times.  It’s one of those things impossible to convey in the written word.  You had to experience it.  When the ABC network launched its new series Batman on 12 January 1966 . . . well,…

Short Takes: Idle Thoughts on a Sunday

July 17, 2011 -- Here are some thoughts rambling through my head that aren't worth a whole post by themselves:

 

1) Marvel is ribbing DC's relaunch in their most recent solicitations by bragging about their high issue numbers. You've probably seen "Uncanny X-Men -- still at #340!" or whatever. But I've noticed that Marvel is, in fact, relaunching a lot of their long-running series on the sly:

  • They launched Hulk along with the long-running…

Trio of books celebrate America's rich comic-strip heritage

Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

July 12, 2011 -- In the early part of the twentieth century, the United States had the world’s most amazing and unique comic strips, a legacy of innovation and irresistible storytelling almost forgotten today. Which is just one of the reasons I’m grateful for The Comics: The Complete Collection (Abrams ComicArt, $40), by Brian Walker.

Deck Log Entry # 128 Deep in the Bug-Infested Jungle . . . .

Every so often, in order to put the subject of one of my Deck Log entries into perspective, I have to go back to before the beginning of the Silver Age.  Since I’ll be talking about that “Ninth Wonder of the World”, Congorilla, this is one of those times.  So let’s ratchet the dial of the Wayback Machine much farther…

Achtung! Everyone read about OUR re-launch!

OK, it's not really a re-launch. I just said that to get you to read this. Did it work?

 

Anyway, a few months back I asked for suggestions for how to improve the site. A great many excellent suggestions were made, especially by Lumbering Jack, but only one really requires a lot of prep time. And that is: DEATH TO ALL GROUPS!

 

Well, not all of them. But the consensus was that Groups were superfluous, and split conversations into more than one place, and were…

Random Musings on Recent Comics



Another Contrived Conclusion



I was really enjoying Brightest Day.  I like ensemble titles.  I’m a big fan of many of the featured characters, like Firestorm and Martian Manhunter.  Geoff Johns told a strong story, introducing new characters and coming up with interesting… Continue

Latest 'Hardy Boys' GN sets high standards, latest Vertigo Crime and others not so much

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

The Teetering Tower of Review Stuff is perilously high, so let’s bang through some of it:

 

* I usually enjoy DC’s “Vertigo Crime” line of mature-reader graphic novels, but the latest needed some tighter…

The Best of Lost, Part II
