200 Things I Like About Comics

It’s been almost four years since I first put my name forward to write a weekly column for the Captain Comics website. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to meet a weekly…

'Superman: Earth One' a disappointment

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov. 23, 2010 -- DC Comics is adding another chapter to a long tradition of re-invention that has always been entertaining, with a new graphic novel called Superman: Earth One ($19.99). Maybe because of my high expectations, I’m terribly disappointed with this book.…

Deck Log Entry # 114 Happy Thanksgiving 2010!

This year, my usual Thanksgiving story got overcome by events. Sorry, folks. But instead of just running a giant picture of a turkey and being done with it, I decided to turn over the space to another writer’s work. The good news is that he is a better writer than I am.…

On My Bookshelf, Finale

It’s been two months since I started writing about all of the comic books on my bookshelf. This series turned out to be a lot more extensive than I thought it would. But it also generated more discussion that I thought it would. So, for those still paying attention, here’s one last installment of the…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov. 16, 2010 -- Sarah Glidden’s debut graphic novel How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less (DC/Vertigo, $24.99) registers in a lot of different categories, and is charming and thoughtful in all of them.…

Top Cow wants you to pick which Pilot Season book continues



Nov. 17, 2010 -- Top Cow is pretty serious about its 'Pilot Season' project, where it publishes different new comics and lets the readers pick which ones will continue. So serious, in fact, that they have let me post all five of 2010's Pilot Season books online -- for… Continue

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 16 The Happy Pursuit of Pepper

If someone---me, for example---ever decided to make the Silver-Age Iron Man series into a romantic comedy, that would be the title: The Happy Pursuit of Pepper, starring Jack Carson and Shirley Patterson, with James Craig as “Tony Stark”.



Of course, the original screenplay---Tales of Suspense # 45-91---would need a re-write. All that super-hero and super-villain business clutters up the story, so most of it would get the axe. The…

On My Bookshelf, Part 7

I’m getting close to the end of what turned out to be an epic series of columns. There are just a few little things left to cover. In this case, literally. The next shelf is the undersized shelf. These are digests and paperbacks. In other words, little books.


Mouse Guard Fall 1152


I wrote about anthropomorphic animals in the last column about oversized comics. Well, here’s another comic starring critters that walk and…

What I'd Do With 'Fantastic Four'

What I'd Do With 'Fantastic Four'



When I pared back on comics almost a year ago, one of the titles I reluctantly dropped was Fantastic Four. The reluctance, though, was that of a collector who'd bought every issue for more than 40 years. The reader in me was more than a little relieved. Fantastic Four had become more of a… Continue

On My Bookshelf, Part 6

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov. 2, 2010 -- Halloween is over, but there’s still a lot of scare fare in the Teetering Tower of Review Stuff.



Four Color Fear: Forgotten Horror Comics of the 1950s (Fantagraphics, $29.99) tops the pile, a collection of off-brand (and probably public domain) comics from before the Comics Code of 1954… Continue
