You’ve probably noticed that the front page looks pretty crazy now. I like it.

I made some gif flip throughs to use as thumbnails for the books.

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! We’ve got another wave of updates to share with you today, so let’s get started! First of all, I’ve streamlined the Nick Fury tags by deleting the “Fury” tag and limiting the “Sgt. Fury” tag to the following books: Fantastic Firsts Marvel Masterworks: Sgt. Fury [...]

A Spider-Man Publication Timeline

Jan. 18th, 2011 | 12:53 am

I just found this while doing a little Spidey research. Matt Kuhns over at Modern Ideas created cool little visual timeline for the various Spider-Man publications over the ages. Kuhns posted “Spider-Man’s Tangled Publication-History Web” along with a bunch of fun (very nerdy) commentary, way back in October 2010. Not sure why it took me [...]

Four Color Process has posted a fantastic essay/manifesto titled In Defense of Dots: The Lost Art of Comic Books which contains the images I used to make the above animated gif. It’s a great article and should be of interest to many of you collectors. There is definitely an aesthetic draw to printing, paper stock, [...]

Review: Switchblade Honey

Jan. 16th, 2011 | 12:37 am

There’s a bit of cleavage, some explosions, lots of anti-establishment, anti-authority dialogue, and a few nice space ship shots (okay, they’re mediocre), so it’s not a total loss. But then, I’m a sci-fi nut, so maybe that’s a little skewed.

Review: Jonah Hex: Counting Corpses

Jan. 11th, 2011 | 03:46 am

So did Jonah Hex: Counting Corpses break the mold? Not really. Perhaps the problem isn’t with the title, though. Jonah Hex is a comic in the classic fashion and it’s possible that it doesn’t work as well for reading habits developed alongside modern uber-arc epics.

Review Submission Tweaks, 154 Marvel Trade List Updates, 132 Transformers Books

Dan mentioned (while submitting his upcoming review) that there didn’t seem to be feedback as to whether the submission went through. There was a small green box that shows up under the submission form with confirmation text, but it was showing up below the huge block of explanation/small print – making it easy to miss. [...]

Review: Bone: One Volume Edition

If I told you it was possible to purchase a single book collecting comics earning 10 Eisner Awards, 11 Harvey Awards, and a further 11 Eisner Award nominations, you might be excused for saying I was talking a lot of hot air. Okay, so I may have neglected to point out this is a mammoth 1344 paged monster, containing all 55+ issues of Jeff Smith’s Bone series.

Review: The Sensational She-Hulk

Dec. 22nd, 2010 | 01:30 pm

I’m pretty sure that John Byrne wasn’t intending “usually superficial” when he wrote this Marvel Graphic Novel, but the “Sensational” She-Hulk here is a far cry from “Savage.”

Review: Sandman Mystery Theatre Vol. 2: The Face and the Brute

Dec. 20th, 2010 | 06:31 am

Like many titles published under the mature reader imprint of DC Comics, Sandman Mystery Theatre is focused on tales of crime and horror. And while this book is not explicitly supernatural, there is a slight hint of mysticism in the air.
