Cartoonist Fighting Cancer … Again

Chicago cartoonist Ed Siemienkowicz is fighting the battle of his life yet again. A little over two years ago he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which it seemed like he had pretty well beaten by having part of his pancreas, intestines and lymph nodes removed. Then it came back and his entire pancreas was removed. Now it's back again and Ed is in the fight of his life yet again. He has documented part of his battle over on his crowdfunding page, Team Ed. This article about Ed is in three parts, my personal feelings about Ed and his battle, how you can help, and a soapbox.

Betty & Veronica #3 – Review

When Archie Comics first announced Adam Hughes as the writer and artist for Betty & Veronica, I was cautiously optimistic. With each of the first two issues, I got more optimistic, but remained cautious. The book, however good it was, still didn't seem to quite fit with the new narrative that Mark Waid had established for the New Riverdale. Now the final issue of the debut story arc is available, and we can fully evaluate how well Adam Hughes' Betty & Veronica sits not only with the rest of the New Riverdale, but as a story as a whole.

Vampirella #3 Review

I've been impressed by the new Vampirella series from Dynamite. It harkens back to classic Vampirella stories with it's setting more in the realm of science-fiction rather than horror, super-heroes, or bad girl comic book genres.

Matt Wagner Finishes Mage, Starting This Summer

I was recently going through my collection and came across some issues of Matt Wagner's Mage, which came out from Comico in the mid 1980s. A little over a decade later, he continued the saga of Kevin Matchstick, inheritor of the legend of King Arthur, In Mage, The Hero Defined from Image Comics. This July, the final chapter, titled Mage, The Hero Denied begins in a new series from Image.

Magik #4 – Reviews Of Old Comics

Occasionally, I just trip across a cover while browsing the Internet, and I remember it vaguely from my childhood. Magik, the Storm and Illyana Rasputin mini-series from 1984, fills in the space between panels of Uncanny X-Men #160. In that issue, the X-Men, and Colossus's little sister Illyana are transported to the other-dimensional domain of Belasco, a one-armed sorcerer that had previously faced off against Ka-Zar and Shanna, the She-Devil. Near the end, as the X-Men are escaping, Belasco takes Illyana from their grasp. For a brief second, Kitty Pryde loses her grip on Illyana, but regains it, only to pull her through after she's been in Belasco's realm for several years. Later on, Illyana would exhibit mutant abilities to travel through space and time using "discs" similar to those that randomly appeared in Belasco's realm. She also began using magical abilities and summoning a "soul-sword" that went from looking like a lightsaber to a traditional, albeit glowing sword. This series explained what happened in that span of time.

In Case You Missed It: Betty Boop TPB

The Betty Boop series from Dynamite may have flown under your radar, but it has a creative team that screams for you to consider buying this collection. Roger Langridge has written great comics, some of which he's drawn, and is capable of writing not only comedy, but some stories that you can really get into. Gisèle Lagacé has an art style that lends itself to a variety of stories, as shown by her work on Jem and the Holograms and her own webcomic, Ménage à 3. SHe can take a fun story and inject it with all the humanity needed to keep you pulled in. I'm personally looking forward to re-reading this series in one sitting.
