A Comic Show – Where Are Jeff Lemire’s Haters?

[youtube][/youtube] Aaron Haaland of Florida’s A Comic Shop writes; Hey Fandom! I’m back with some New Comics Now including my favorite book of the week, TRILLIUM! So, Jeff Lemire did it again. Trillium is pure comic alchemy; it incorporates the format of the single issues into the storytelling! Yes, flipbooks have been done before, but […]

First Review: Sidekick #1 By JMS And Tom Mandrake

Sometimes I dream of revolution, a bloody coup d’etat by the second rank–troupes of actors slaughtered by their understudies, magicians sawn in half by indefatigably smiling glamour girls, cricket teams wiped out by marauding bands of twelfth men–I dream of champions chopped down by rabbit-punching sparring partners while eternal bridesmaids turn and rape the bridegrooms […]

A Logo Alone

Straight from Bill Sienkiewicz, the logo to Alone, his new series for Image with Joe Michael Straczynski. Two surnames with a lot of less-used consonants between them!

A Comic Show – We’ll Have To Wait Until 2099 To Get Peter Back!

[youtube][/youtube] Aaron Haaland writes; Hey Fandom, it’s me, Aaron! This is A Comic Show’s New Comics Now where I talk about the books I liked each week.

Constantine Done Right? Ten Grand #1 by JMS and Ben Templesmith Reviewed

Ten Grand is a hard book for me to read with any consistent authorial viewpoint in my head. Written by Joe Michael Straczynski and painted by Ben Templesmith, this book’s visual identity is very similar to another Image title, Fell. The general scenario and scumbags that populate Snowtown also seem to reoccur here, with lots […]

BC Mag #2: Comic Book Feuds

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rich Johnston People understand Hollywood feuds exist, but find it strange similar behaviour might be exhibited in a field as lowly as that of, say, the comic book industry. But people are people, human nature remains, it’s just there’s less money in comics. Which often makes the behaviour worse, not […]

The Insult That Man A Man Out Of Moloch

Before Watchmen: Moloch #1 is out today from Joe Michael Straczynski and Eduardo Risso, telling the story of Watchmen’s Moloch, from child freak to magician to mobster. But it reminded me of something else… remember this?   Well, it’s not too far from what happened to Moloch. We start with an insult, though in this […]

A Stuttering Start To Joe’s Comics

Steve Robles wrote for Bleeding Cool from San Diego Comic Con As his very self-congratulatory promo video reminds me, J. Michael Straczinsky is a very prolific man. His panel starts with a series of stops. Technical difficulties bring a little levity to the room as JMS battles a faulty projector and bumbling technical staff to […]
