Satellite Sam Will Return From Fraction And Chaykin As A TV Western

One of the comic books I enjoyed the most the past year was Satellite Sam by Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin, a procedural television show from the fifties embroiled in organised crime, murder and sexual depravity… At Heroes Con, it was announced that after the final issue, out soon, the series will continue in 2016 […]

Swipe File: Satellite Sam And A Photo We Found On The Internet

The cover to Satellite Sam #14 by Howard Chaykin…  And a photo of undetermined origin… In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If […]

Another week, a lovely load of comic books! The Gay Blade does seem to suit the long beard and hair in when talking to a created-by-Alan-Moore character in today's Tom Strong, doesn't he? Today's lesson. When fighting Nova, don't call his mother a cow. Simples. Don't worry new Inhuman-in-Secret-Avengers, there are worst places you could […]

You know how Ultron's head got kicked off at the end of Age Of Ultron #10?

Repeat Review: Satellite Sam #1 by Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin

REPEAT: This article ran last week, but the comic is out today (and available at Image Expo yesterday). We thought a repeat may be in order… With a book like this, it's tempting to conjure up a conversation. "Howard, what do you want to draw?" "Sharp suits from the nineteen fifties! Science-fiction! People smoking! Men […]

First Review: Satellite Sam #1 by Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin

With a book like this, it's tempting to conjure up a conversation. "Howard, what do you want to draw?" "Sharp suits from the nineteen fifties! Science-fiction! People smoking! Men with jaws! Babes posing in lingerie! Crowd scenes! Metal staircases!" And then Matt Fraction went away and wrote Satellite Sam. It seems to perfectly play on […]
