If you missed it, you can read about the first part of day one at the North Texas Comic Book Show right here. After getting my main mission accomplished, I was able to relax a bit and enjoy the show. First up was Jim Shooter’s one-man-panel on storytelling. When Jim Shooter was 14 years old […]

I’m happy to say I have my ticket to see Black Panther: The IMAX Experience this Saturday at noon. I’ve been a fan of this character since he was first in the Fantastic Four comic book back in 1966 when I was 11. That character, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, has undergone extensive […]

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Comic Book Convention, so I’m especially looking forward to going to the North Texas Comic Book Show this weekend for my first visit to this event. I marked this on my calendar back in November in case I was still here in Austin, so I’m really […]

The first Ant-Man movie was not a blockbuster production, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. So I’m looking forward to the sequel after seeing the new Ant-Man and The Wasp Trailer below. With the Black Panther movie coming out next month, Avengers: Infinity War in May, and the Ant-Man and The Wasp movie in July, it’s […]

Note: I originally wrote this as a single post, but it turned out to be much too long for a single reading, so I divided it up into 4 parts; 1 for each artist. Someone raised the question of who I would choose to be on my Mt. Rushmore of comic book artists. That is, […]

Superman And Mighty Mouse

Friday , 29, May 2015 Comments Off on Superman And Mighty Mouse

The Mother Goose & Grimm comic strip below appeared in today’s newspapers across the country. I laughed when I first saw it, and then my mind started working, which is seldom a good thing. As a kid, Mighty Mouse was one of the first cartoons I watched on TV. I loved the operatic theme song, […]

It’s that time of year. News is trickling out this week and will next week, I’m sure, about TV shows that have been canceled.
