Will The Falcon Be Deported In Captain America: Sam Wilson #17?

If there's one thing readers can count on from superstar writer Nick Spencer (because it sure isn't plot development in Morning Glories), it's subtle political commentary. So it's no surprise that an upcoming issue of Captain America: Sam Wilson #17 will focus on conservative news media trying to get the All-New Falcon deported for being […]

Morning Glories artist Joe Eisma makes the offer….

As I have mentioned on […]

A Requiem for Hero Comics In Phoenix, Arizona

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt It's always painful to hear a comic book retailer closed its doors. No matter the reasons or circumstances that force the shutdown, there's always a sense of dread that lingers. Whether it was the only shop in your neighborhood or just the closest one doesn't matter. The Wednesday Warriors know that familiar feeling, a homecoming of sorts. […]

Twenty-One Thoughts About Twenty-One Comics – Uncanny X-Men, Superior Spider-Man, Darkness, Cyberforce, Aphrodite IX, Kiss Me Satan, Buzzkill, Harbinger, Bounce, BPRD, X-Men Legacy, Conan, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Morbius, Savage Wolverine, Savage Dragon, Zero, Peter Panzerfaust, Morning Glories And Dream Thief

Another week, another lovely pile of comics. We've already looked at Villain's Month and Infinity books, but what else is kicking around today? So… Deadpool no longer thinks he's in a comic book? It's a sad, sad future in Uncanny X-Men. By the way, do who have any confirmation on which Jean Grey, the Jean […]

Twenty Thoughts About Twenty Comics Today – Morning Glories, Secret, Justice League, Itty Bitty Hellboy, Super Dinosaur, Angel And Faith, Mind The Gap, Skullkickers, Lazarus, Massive, Think Tank, Sex, Peanuts, Steed And Mrs Peel, Fanboys Vs Zombies, Regular Show, Uncanny X-Men, New Avengers, Wolverine & The X-Men, Uncanny Avengers

So how to start this week's comics. Something, light, upbeat, feel good and… Okay, maybe Morning Glories wasn't the best way to start. Well then, something else… Aah! Uncanny Avengers, do you really have to? I can't take any more… Wolverine And The X-Men, you too? Can people please stop ripping off their faces, give […]

Eighteen Thoughts About Eighteen Comics – Tom Strong, Batman Inc, Animal Man Annual, Batman Annual, Uber, Collider, Detective Comics Annual, Morning Glories, Bedlan, Sex, X-Men, Superman Annual, Captain Marvel, What If AVX, Absolution, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Flash Annual

Tom Strong knows the score. So, today, that's exactly what I did. And here's what I thought. Grant Morrison's Batman comes to an end. Not with a bang, but with a moo and a miaow. It's a time of reckoning, a look back through the entire run, a meeting with Commissioner Gordon and a kiss […]

Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen Comics – Prophet, Wolverine & The X-Men, Uncanny, X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Fatale, Young Avengers, Catwoman, Morning Glories, Mars Attacks: Classics Obliterated, Godzilla, X-O Manowar, Justice League, Age Of Ultron AI, Superman And Larfleeze

The original Youngblood, as seen from the far future of Prophet, Rob Liefeld redrawn by Simon Roy. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will make jokes about future anatomy looking no more ridiculous, but rather, enjoy its subtlety… I always suspected teachers meetings went something like this, from today's Wolverine And The X-Men. […]

The Power And The Morning Glory – Talking To Joe Eisma

Joseph Kyle Schmidt talked to Joe Eisma. No stranger to scrutiny, Joe Eisma can withstand the pressures of penciling a book like Morning Glories. Even then, a guy's liable can get nervous from time to time. "Every issue has some kind of, at least one major shocking scene," Joe says.  "I wonder how people are […]

Talking To Nick Spencer About Bedlam, The Aurora Shootings And SHIELD

Photo by Sindha Agha. Dylan Sutcliff writes; To get an interview with Nick Spencer I first had to abandon any semblance of self-worth- okay maybe it wasn't that bad. It was in a chatroom, a tinychat to be specific. I was bursting with questions and theories after reading Morning Glories #26 and took to the […]

Orbiting Around Morning Glories

[audio:] Orbital Comics of London presents: Welcome to Episode 110 of The Orbiting Pod! This week, we go back to school with Morning Glories #26, say cowabunga with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #21, travel far with A Distant Soil #39, act the goat with Rachel Rising #16, hang high with Arrow #6, and ask questions […]

Morning Glories #26 To Be Replaced Over Wrong Page

Morning Glories #26 was printed with a odd page. Not the kind of thing you wouldn't expect to see in the title, which does kinda go all over the place. But in this case, It wasn't intentional, so retailers have been asked to destroy copies, to be replaced by the corrected version. If you did […]

Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Manhattan Projects, Morning Glories, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, The End Times Of Bram And Ben, Wolverine & The X-Men, Cable & X-Force, Batgirl, Katana, Powers, Avengers Assemble, Fury, Buffy, Avengers Arena, Ghostbusters

This is the Albert Einstein we always deserved and yet, until Manhattan Projects we never got a whiff of until now. I'm so glad we got Manhattan Projects. Morning Glories does the hideous trick of applying a child's logic to the Bible. Which is just the kind of thing it was never meant to stand […]

Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Locke & Key, FF, Minutemen, Crossed, Gambit, Ferals, Mudman, Phantom Lady And Doll Man, Wolverine & The X-Men, The New Deadwardians, Ultimate X-Men, AVX Versus, JIM, Morning Glories

The new Locke & Key comic is an interesting creation. Much of the plot twists are based on familiarity with the series, and if you know the comics well, you'll see them coming a mile of. But for newcomers, too much is not explained and you may be left unsatisfied. But fir all that, it's […]
