Minimum Wage #2 1995 A little while ago, I wrote a review for Bob Fingerman's sequel to Minimum Wage, currently being published by Image. At the time, I meant to post my old review from my old Blogger site for an issue of the first Minimum Wage. Well, here it is, and changed a little bit for the time passage to today. This is a "Mature Readers" title, so any of you that are younger shouldn't be able to buy this. Sometimes, you'll find this titled listed as "adult," but this particular issue is labeled as "Mature Readers." In the case of this issue, that means profanity, nudity and adult situations. I keep my copies of Minimum Wage on a spinner rack I traded a drawing for about ten years ago. As always, at least until I can get around to making a banner that says it, spoilers abound. SYNOPSIS: Rob is moving out of his apartment into a new place that he'll share with his girlfriend, Sylvia. His roommate Jack isn't helping, possibly out of some passive-aggressive resentment of Rob's leaving. Rob's annoying friend Matt shows up to pick through Rob's collection of comics and videos and be generally loud and annoying.
SAMUREE #1 May 1987 Writer: Neal Adams Pencils: Mark Beachum Inks: Ian Akin & Brian Garvey Colors: Liz Berube Letters: Ken Bruzenak Lately I've been on a run of reviewing DC Comics. So I went through my comics looking for something to review that wasn't by DC. My last comic was one of the best comics ever published, so I decided to go with something a little more underrated. Enter the world of Neal Adams's Continuity Comics. In 1987 I was getting back into comics after a brief period of abandoning them in an attempt to get girls to like me. Yeah, if I could go back in time, I probably would tell that kid to get over it, life gets better after High School. Nevertheless, my only outlet at first was a convenience store with a spinner rack that let me get reacquainted with the X-Men, and discover a few new titles, including Samuree. SYNOPSIS: Daryl Sheppard, a sixteen year old girl, alias Samuree is training exceptionally hard, but not being noticed by Lieutenant Pierce, with whom apparently she is in love and practically throwing herself at him. He reads in a newspaper about a hijacking that led into a hostage situation in a natural history museum. Meanwhile, three young superheroes working out also notice the same newspaper article and recognize a name among one of the hostages.
As we say goodbye to 2013 lets take a look at the last comic shipment of the year! This is a small list but do not let the size fool you; there are a ton of good books coming this week!! I have to say 2013 was one hell of a year for the comic
ELEMENTALS #22 February,1988 I’ve been a fan of his Bill Willingham’s work since I graduated from High School. See, on graduation night, I had gotten my diploma and was on my way to the county graduation party to have one last blast with friends, and so I stopped by the Mall to pick up a tee-shirt with the
Elementals #2 April 1989 It was 1989, and I was graduating from High School. In my home town, there were only two places to buy comics, a Convenience store with a spinner rack and just down the road from there at the town's only shopping mall, a B. Dalton booksellers that also had a spinner rack, but featured better comics. The plan was just after graduating and just prior to a party, to stop by the mall and get a t-shirt for the college I would be attending (and subsequently dropping out of) in the fall. Being the comics fan that I am, I decided to stop by the bookstore and pick up a comic or two. For some reason on that afternoon, I decided to pick up something new, and that was where I was introduced to Elementals.
Hansi, the Girl Who Loved The Swastika February 1994 The trick in talking about Religiously-themed comics is doing so without inserting my own feelings about said religion into the commentary. Hansi was published in 1976 by Spire Christian Comics, who also produced a series of Christian-themed comics featuring Archie. It is the biographical story of
Tabatha #1 Created and Writen by Neil Gibson Pencils and Inks by Casper Wijngaard and Anja Poland Letters by Comicraft's Jimmy Betancourt Digital Release Date: November 28, 2012 So by chance did you read any of the Twisted Dark volumes? I really hope so because the story telling was incredible. Neal and company decided to put out another series called Tabatha. How does this rank and will he follow suit with another gritty story? The answers to that and more after the jump!
I have constantly been bombarded with the pandering covers from Zenescope for months now, and it seems just when I think that they can’t get more exploitive, they just continue to find a new benchmark. I've never ventured past the covers until Zenescope visited HeroesCon this year and I felt the urge to walk up to their booth, while they waited for someone to stop and show an interest and just tell them, “There’s nothing good about what you do.” However, that wouldn't have been fair, as I’d just be judging a book by its cover, literally. So I did what any fair person would do, and I read some Zenescope books.
I have a dream that all of those unwanted toys from yesteryear can one day try again. I have a dream that one day all of the next experiences will feel like first experiences. I have a dream that we can all live peacefully in a future protected by Terry McGuiness and Miguel O’Hara both.
Each week I will try and pick the top 10 new books. Now this is what I think will be hot and there is no scientific data to back it (in other words sales figures). This is something we could have fun with and if you feel I am off the mark then let me know in the comments section. Who knows, maybe I will pick your books next week.
