John Byrne Splash Pages

Friday , 8, May 2015 Comments Off on John Byrne Splash Pages

One of my favorite comic book artists is John Byrne. Byrne is retired now and usually only does commission drawings for fans. One of the things on my bucket list is to purchase such a drawing from him some day when I have more money to afford such an extravagant item. Over at Diversions of […]

My iPhone Wallpaper

Friday , 1, May 2015 Comments Off on My iPhone Wallpaper

A few weeks ago, one of the members of a Facebook Comic Book Collecting group I’m a member of asked us to post a screen capture of our mobile phone wallpaper. All of those posted, of course, had some tie-in to comic books, comic book movies, characters, etc. Mine, obviously, was this character. What’s your […]

Superman Is, After All, An Extraterrestrial

Tuesday , 24, February 2015 Comments Off on Superman Is, After All, An Extraterrestrial

I don’t know where I got this from, but it makes me laugh every time I see it, because I can just imagine this is how it would be the first time Lois Lane sees Superman’s junk.

This was up in one of the Facebook groups and I thought it was hilarious because A. the kid Tommy seriously tries to tackle the Man of Steel and gets broken because of it and B. Superman is a dick about it; just winking and smiling. My daughter would say Tommy is Seattle and Superman […]

Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

Saturday , 31, January 2015 Comments Off on Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

I’m finally beginning to feel human again, after a week of whatever this cold/flu illness was that I had. I’ve still got a bit of cough and congestion and I’m still feeling very tired, but at least I don’t have all those things magnified along with the aches, fever and headache I went through most […]

Mark Evanier, who probably knows more about the man outside of his own children and grandchildren, indicates that he will be (hopefully) completing a biography of the late, great, comic book artist and writer, Jack “King” Kirby this year. Kirby passed away 21 years ago next month. Evanier writes that he has almost 250,000 words […]

Favorite Comic Book Covers – Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #81

Friday , 16, January 2015 Comments Off on Favorite Comic Book Covers – Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #81

This issue is cover dated February 1968 which means it was actually released in December 1967, as most comic books were cover dated 2 months in advance of their publication. So let’s get the first and most obvious thought out of everyone’s mind; it was NOT the possible death of Lois Lane that attracted me […]

Son-O’-God Comics

Wednesday , 7, January 2015 Comments Off on Son-O’-God Comics

For the past few weeks, as I’ve noted here and here,  I’ve been reading old copies of comic books from my youth. But in addition to that I’ve been revisiting one of the best satirical magazines of all time, National Lampoon. In late 1971 I was a junior in high school and had just turned […]

Born on this date in 1922 in Manhattan, NY, Stanley Martin Lieber would grow up to rename himself Stan Lee and become the editor and eventual publisher of Marvel Comics, in addition to many other entertainment industry projects and businesses.
