BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #225

Here's another issue of INCREDIBLE HULK that I bought new from my regular 7-11 supplier, now that I had gotten on board with following the series. I seem to recall that my younger brother Ken eventually bought his own copy as well, possibly the last issue of INCREDIBLE HULK he picked up. But what was … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #225

Lee & Kirby: The Firsthand Account of Jack Kirby

As the 1970s turned into the 1980s, powerhouse artist and creative genius Jack Kirby was becoming increasingly disillusioned by the way the history of the creation of the Marvel characters was being recounted for the public. Beginning particularly with the publication of ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS in 1974, Kirby found his role in events diminished, … Continue reading Lee & Kirby: The Firsthand Account of Jack Kirby

Personal Best: SILVER SURFER #11

It's somehow a little bit too self-aggrandizing for me to talk about any of the comics I've edited over the years as a PERFECT GAME, the category that I might have featured this issue under. Given that it won the Eisner Award for Best Single Issue in 2016, though, I feel as though there's a … Continue reading Personal Best: SILVER SURFER #11

This cover to the 100th issue of the long-running science fiction anthology title MYSTERY IN SPACE is simultaneously totally on-the-nose while simultaneously being intriguing as hell. Yes, this moment is silly, but it promises an exciting story within, one laden with cross and double-cross. In many cases, though, once a buyer had paid their dimes … Continue reading Great Covers: MYSTERY IN SPACE #100

WC: DETECTIVE COMICS #319

Among the books that I acquired as part of my Windfall Comics purchase, there were a number of issues of DETECTIVE COMICS. Which stands to reason--the title was one of the very few books to continue to be published uninterrupted from the Golden Age all the way through to the Silver, thanks to the abiding … Continue reading WC: DETECTIVE COMICS #319

Blah Blah Blog – Philly Post-Mortum

A post from my Marvel blog of long ago, recounting events that took place at a convention in Philadelphia the prior weekend. There was a short follow-up post that I just added in here at the end, as it doesn't really stand by itself any longer. Philly post-mortum June 3, 2008 | 1:00 AM | … Continue reading Blah Blah Blog – Philly Post-Mortum
