More Turok, more Fables and Cinderella: Superspy

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



My name is Andrew Smith, and I am a comic-book junkie.



Of course I’ve always suspected it. But with Turok, Son of Stone Archives Vol. 4 ($49.95, Dark Horse), I can no longer deny it.



For those only familiar with Turok’s current videogame incarnation (which… Continue

Scripps Howard News Service



It is said that Garth Ennis is the best writer of World War II stories in the comics biz today, and Battlefields ($29.99, Dynamite Entertainment) is convincing evidence of that reputation.



Battlefields is a collection of three unrelated WWII miniseries,… Continue

Content, content, content!

I've added more stuff in the last couple of days I want to draw attention to, since some of it may not be obvious:



* I've added two videos provided by Marvel. One is a Silver Surfer bio for The Superhero Squad Show, and the other is a clip from episode 2 of the Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic. Both are in the "Videos" section.…

New toys and features on Captain Comics ... plus a fresh lemon scent!

The Captain has been a busy beaver.



I've added press release text, art and video going back to August in the "Comics News" group. Go look -- it's well over 100 articles, with accompanying art and video!

Captain Comics has officially become one-stop shopping.



But while the "Comics… Continue

Marvel's "The Siege" -- video, text and art

Marvel's "Dark Reign" is apparently coming to a head in the coming months, with a storyline called "The Siege." The PR has been coming fast and furious, including art, text and video. Here's what I've got so far.

EC Archives, Legion of Super-Heroes, Unknown Soldier: Still kicking!

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Nov, 3, 2009 -- Forget turning lemons into lemonade; I’m beginning to think writer Geoff Johns can turn lemons into fine wine.



Johns has gained a reputation for fixing characters that have become radioactive because various revamps have made their histories too convoluted. He did it with Hawkman, he did it with the 1960s Green Lantern and Flash, and now he’s doing it with the Legion of… Continue
