U.S.Avengers #10 - "Same as the Old Boss"

  • Oct. 20th, 2017 at 12:26 AM


Who doesn’t like Squirrel Girl? Doreen’s great, because she’s the furthest thing from a “random,” “zany” character there is; at the core of her, there’s this incredible, intense well of compassion and empathy that you don’t really see in a lot of other super-people. -- Al Ewing

Avengers #672: Worlds Collide, Part One

  • Oct. 19th, 2017 at 11:02 PM


'The team is far, far more aware of their role in the Marvel Universe not just as mentors, but as students. The Champions aren't the "farm team" anymore - their peers are the Avengers.' - Mark Waid

 I haven't posted to this community in forever, and since forever I've been working on my own comics and such, which I wanna share here.


How does this work again? )
Oh hey, Jennifer Walters popped up again in Mighty Thor... and like everything else recently, was treated like crap.

If you saw the first season of Riverdale, you may recall its version of Dilton Doiley isn't the genial, well-liked genius of the comics, but a somewhat disturbed survivalist. This month's issue of the show's tie-in comic takes a closer look at him. Warning for child abuse.

Usagi Yojimbo #112 (2008) - "Sakura pt II"

  • Oct. 17th, 2017 at 9:51 PM
In yesterday's post, we met Sakura, and we saw her getting in trouble by kidnapping an enslaved serving girl in order to set her free.

Part II is the conclusion to her first adventure.



With your trademark Sakai Twist™ )

Sakura is slated to return, according to Stan Sakai, but I've seen no indication of her comeback so far.

Edit: this story is available on Book 25: Fox Hunt and the Usagi Yojimbo Saga vol. 6.

Galactus Gags

  • Oct. 17th, 2017 at 6:57 PM
 

"Ryan explained to me, he wanted it to be done in our style. He likened and wrote Galactus as Garfield and Norin Radd as Jon. That determined what they were going to look like. When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip." -- Jim Davis

Beware #6: The Thing from Beyond

  • Oct. 17th, 2017 at 4:54 PM


"At least my face can't turn out like the Joker's, or a giant red light bulb as in that Richie Rich comic...right?"


Okay, time to bring out the heavy stuff here. This tale of revenge upon revenge is so ridiculously, over-the-top grotesque and brutal it makes EC's "Foul Play" look like The Very Hungry Caterpillar by comparison. Warning for violence/gore.

'There! There! There! Suffer! Suffer! Suffer!' )
