Deck Log Entry # 133 Happy Thanksgiving 2011!

Friends, I’ve never taken the time to say this before, but I deeply appreciate the fact that you’re reading this.  It means you’re taking time away from the Big Game on TV, or from nibbling at the bowls of pre-feast snacks, or discussing politics with your oddball uncle, the one who insists that the Commies spiked…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

The Flash has always been an important character in DC Comics mythology, and Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, co-writers of the super-speedster’s newly re-launched title, plan to keep it that way.

100 Greatest Characters of the ‘50s and ‘60s (part 1)

I’m not the Silver Age expert on this site.  We have Captain Comics, Commander Benson and Mr. Silver Age for that.  Hey, I wasn’t born until almost halfway through the ‘70s.  But I thought it would be fun to put together a list of the best characters from the ‘50s and ‘60s anyway.  Consider it an outsider’s…

Reviews: 'Marzi,' 'How to Draw Chiller Monsters'

'Marzi' demonstrates life behind Iron Curtain through child's eyes

 

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

I doubt very many of us have wondered what it was like to grow up as a little girl in Communist Poland, but after Marzi: A Memoir (DC/Vertigo, $17.99), I doubt many of us will ever forget it.

It reminded me of a thought that occasionally flits across my frontal lobe about how so many of our iconic monsters seem to represent the threat not just of death, but also -- and maybe moreso -- turning Us into Them. If you squint just right, it…

You Can’t Change Conventional Wisdom

I read an article last week on Grantland.com in which editor Bill Simmons tried to challenge the conventional thinking on film star Eddie Murphy.   He argued that Murphy had one of the greatest runs ever for a comedian and that a swoon later in his career doesn’t take that away.  He claimed that Murphy’s later work,…

'Flight of Angels' soars with imagination, skill

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Occasionally someone executes a standard storytelling device with such dazzling skill that it reminds you why that device became standard in the first place. Rebecca Guay is that someone, with A Flight of Angels (DC/Vertigo, $24.99).
