Contradicting Conventional Wisdom

 

I don’t care all that much about what everybody else thinks.  I’ll make up my own mind, thank you very much.  Sometimes that means I find myself defending what’s popular because I don’t automatically reject the mainstream just for being the mainstream.  And sometimes I find myself in the minority, honestly liking and earnestly defending something that the majority decries as…

My Christmas Wish List

I’m in pretty good shape right now. I have a full closet of clothes, more comics than I can read and a nice stack of new books sitting on my shelf. I don’t really need anything. Yet every comic book I read reminds me of another one I’m interested in.…

'Christmas Classics' graphic novel lives up to its name

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service

 

Dec. 21, 2010 -- What’s Christmas without comics? Well, it’s still Christmas, because there’s nothing especially Christmas-y about comics. Still, there’s lots of red and green in comics, which is enough for me to…

Panning a Story Before It Comes Out

Every once in a while, I’ll come across a great title for an article or a discussion thread; then I’ll start to read it and discover that the article or discussion wasn’t what I thought it would be.  On those occasions, I like to write the article I wish I had…

DC Digital: Releases for Dec. 8

Stop the presses! DC’s precious resources are being depleted!

Well, maybe that’s a trifle alarmist, but that’s what occurred to me when I realized what a large portion of DC’s digital release program is devoted to Green Lantern… and how precious little of the current run is…

Deck Log Entry # 115 The Silver-Age Challenge---DC Edition

I haven't done one of my trivia quizzes in a long time, and never here in my Deck Log column. For one thing, the development and expanse of search engines has made it difficult to find truly challenging questions. Oh, one can format a question to make it virtually Google-proof, something…

Keeping Up with Comics

I had an epiphany the other month. It wasn’t anything earth-shattering. And, honestly, it’s an epiphany I’ve had before. So it’s more like a repiphany.

Here it is: I can only keep up with so many comics.

I was reminded of this following a conversation with a friend. We had taken a family vacation to…

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Wolverine’s Villains

Wolverine is unique among superhero superstars. The other big heroes (Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, etc.) all started out as solo heroes and then were added to teams like the Avengers or the Justice League of America based on their popularity. But

Wolverine started out as a member of a team. He wasn’t even the star of the team when he started. He was the foil who moved up to favorite and finally graduated to superstar status.



For that reason, Wolverine…

'Superman vs. Muhammad Ali' is just much fun as it should be

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov. 30, 2010 -- Let’s address this right away: An oversized comic book titled Superman vs. Muhammad Ali sounds like the dumbest idea ever. Amazingly, it turned out to be a great idea 32 years ago, and has only improved with time.…

DC Digital: Releases for Nov. 30

Time flies when you’re in a turkey coma. I’d taken my last look at DC’s digital releases so late that by the time I got home from Thanksgiving, I misremembered that I’d already finished last week’s column. So, skip… Continue
