Deck Log Entry # 149 Happy Thanksgiving 2012!

The fifty-pound turkey stood on the grass, panting nervously.  It was as if the fearful creature knew that Thanksgiving was only a little more than a week away.

 

That, of course, was impossible.  More likely what was giving the turkey fits was the small throng of low-level officials and spectators and…

'Nao of Brown' is very good, but falls short of great

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Not all graphic novels work on every level, nor are they to every taste. This week I’d like to look at some books that came oh-so-close to greatness, only to fall short just a tad.

 

At the top of the list is The Nao of Brown ($24.95, SelfMadeHero), by writer/artist Glyn Dillon. This is an absolutely beautiful book, executed with sparkling artwork, insightful…

The Best Sidekicks (Non Comic-Book Division)

Last week, I wrote about the best sidekicks in comic books. As I was working on my list, I remembered a lot of great sidekicks that have appeared in other media. Instead of tossing them all into one big list, I decided to split them off with a second list. So here you go, my list of the best sidekicks in movies, television, cartoons and classic literature.…

Deck Log Entry # 148 Superman's Pal, President Kennedy

Certain things in comic books were handled with a bit more discretion back in the old days.

The Best Sidekicks

I’ve always like sidekicks. Maybe it was because of a lack of self-confidence. I had a hard time imagining myself as Batman. But I could easily imagine I was Robin riding alongside the Caped Crusader. Maybe it was because of my affinity for the underdog. Sidekicks seemed to be mocked more often than not and I…

By Andrew A. Smith

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 34 The Ups and Downs of the Ant-Man! . . . No, Giant-Man! . . . No, Goliath! . . . No, Yellowjacket!

I came to Marvel Comics late in the game.  While I had been reading DC’s comics since the beginning of the Silver Age, I didn’t tumble to Marvel until about 1965.  Oh, I had seen Marvel Comics.  There had been a few lying around the barber shop where I got my hair cut.  I had taken a look at them, didn’t…

'Dave Stevens,' 'Normandy' are must-haves

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

Ever see someone do something so well it discourages you from ever trying?

 

As a wannabe comic-book artist myself, there have been a lot of masters over the years that have that have been that good. And of those masters, few are as magnificent as the man who created “The Rocketeer.” In Dave Stevens: Covers and Stories (IDW Publishing, $49.99) you can see how…
