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, […]

My iPhone 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 […]

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 […]

Comic Book Christmas Covers – Christmas With The Super-Heroes #1

Monday , 22, December 2014 Comments Off on Comic Book Christmas Covers – Christmas With The Super-Heroes #1

During the holiday season I’ll be posting some of my favorite comic books with a Christmas theme on their covers. Here’s DC Comics’ “Christmas With The Super-Heroes #1” and I love how Superman’s gift is in a lead box so he can’t peek at it with his X-ray vision.
