My Favorite Comic Book Artists – Lou Fine

Sunday , 8, June 2014 Comments Off on My Favorite Comic Book Artists – Lou Fine

My Favorite Comic Book Artists is a series of posts about my favorite comic book artists through the years; why I liked them and a little bit that I may know about them. Nothing fancy, just a look back at some of my favorites. When I was about 11 or 12 I came across a […]

Batman’s Gotham City Mapped

Monday , 2, June 2014 Comments Off on Batman’s Gotham City Mapped

This year Batman celebrates his 75th Anniversary, but the Dark Knight had been in comics for a year before we found out that the urban landscape he protected was named Gotham City in 1940 and it was only 16 years ago that someone created a map of Gotham City, according to this cool article on […]

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Friday , 23, May 2014 Comments Off on X-Men: Days Of Future Past

After work this afternoon I rushed to the closest theater showing X-Men: Days Of Future Past, got my ticket and settled in with about 150 other movie-goers to watch the latest incarnation of the mutant franchise on the silver screen. I was and am a huge fan of the original comic book storyline that took […]

Lots Going On Today

Tuesday , 20, May 2014 Comments Off on Lots Going On Today

Busy at work and busy in my personal life. Let’s get to all the things on my mind today. My heart was touched when I read this story and saw this photo about a little 5 year old boy who passed away due to cancer and his parents decision to dress as his favorite superheroes […]

The Death Of Archie Andrews

Friday , 11, April 2014 Comments Off on The Death Of Archie Andrews

Archie Andrews, comic book fandom’s favorite redheaded guy, is slated to die this July. Much like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and I don’t know how many other iconic comic book characters, the perennial Riverdale High School student will meet his maker. Except it won’t be the student Archie who dies, but rather his future self in […]

Wednesday , 12, March 2014 Comments Off on My Top 10 Things That Turn 50 In 2014

Over at Mental Floss, they have a post up about “50 Things That Turn 50 in 2014” and there are some really cool things listed that are turning 50 this year. I turned 9 years old in 1964, so I remember most of these (obviously NOT things like who was born that year) and thought […]

The Costume Alone Doesn’t Cut It

Monday , 3, March 2014 Comments Off on The Costume Alone Doesn’t Cut It

I saw this cartoon a couple of days ago in the paper. It reminded me of a time when I was 10 or 11 and I created my own Superhero costume to wear out of things I found in my drawer and closet. When I get back to the cabin next month I’m going to […]

Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

Wednesday , 19, February 2014 Comments Off on Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

I’ve read very few of the original (1969) Guardians of the Galaxy comic books and mostly knew about them from their meeting of the Avengers in “The Korvac Saga” which spanned issues #167 through 177 of the Avengers’ comic book in 1978. I’ve never read any of the new (2008) version of the Guardians of […]
