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

Blah Blah Blog – The Doctor Is In

5BC: Five Times Marvel Misappropriated Characters

Most long-running comic book companies, if they're in business for long enough and have a wide enough diversity of creators working on their releases, reach a point at which those creators begin to pull inspiration for their stories and characters from other media.

Best of Blake’s 7 – The Way Back

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

I'm not really a believer in the concept of a "guilty pleasure". I like enough stupid stuff from all across the spectrum that there's really no other way to handle it all other than to embrace the assorted flaws and failings of it all, and just love it unironically. And yet still, with REMO WILLIAMS: … Continue reading Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Doctor Who: Spyfall part one

I've been a regular viewer of DOCTOR WHO since around 1981, starting with Tom Baker (his first three seasons, which were ubiquitous here in the U.S. for many years) and I've watched it regularly and continuously since then--albeit with the huge gap in the middle that everybody suffered through in the 90s. In my household, … Continue reading Doctor Who: Spyfall part one

DOCTOR WHO

It’s Christmas Eve as I write this, and for the last near-decade, at least in my household, my children have learned about the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas, you see, is when Dad watches Doctor Who. Since the show came back in 2005, viewing each year’s Christmas Special has been something of a ritual, a … Continue reading DOCTOR WHO
