Thee Comic Column #12: What’s in a year? 1991

UGh! 90’s comic art is the equivalent of tight-rolled jeans! Image courtesy of Marvel wiki.com

Good lord, does that picture say it all or what? This is the state of the mainstream comic book world in 1992, when Rob Liefeld’s X-Force was all the rage and Mr. Liefeld and his contemporaries were on the cusp of breaking off from the Big 2 and forming their own company, the now-twenty year old Image Comics. Looking back on the 90’s I largely remember it as the WORST time in mainstream comics and the BEST time in left of center, indie books. I’ve talked about the indie stuff at length and recently, but the mainstream stuff…

The Horror Movie Work Week #4

Thee Comic Column #10: The Uncanny Avengers

Just like last week, this week on Thee Comic Column I’m dealing with something that I had really high hopes for but unfortunately let me down. However, the difference this week is that I AM going to give this book a second, third and forth, fifth and sixth chance, because I believe in Rick Remender THAT much.

I didn’t read Avengers Vs. X-Men, haven’t in fact read any Avengers or X-Men book in years other than Remender’s Uncanny X-force, which was introduction to the man and his wonderful writing. Still, I’ve tried to brush up on a little bit of the set-up for this new series via various websites and I think Remender has a pretty good chance to make something big and bad here.

Horror Movie Work Week #3: Anthologies!!!

Okay, so I’m on the road right now and internet is intermittent at best. Plus I’ve been putting these up on Mondays but wanted to adjust that so I hit the last one directly on All Hallows Eve, so from here out it’s Wednesday. And this Wednesday it’s Anthology week here on the Horror Movie Work Week! I mean, what genre goes better with the Anthological format than horror? None, that’s what! So let’s get right into this week’s goody bag of deviousness and dismemberment, shall we?

Thee Comic Column #9: Batman #13

I have not been reading Scott Snyder’s Batman relaunch from DC’s New52 for the past year and since about six months in, after falling in love with his Swamp Thing re-boot and the mini-series Severed Snyder put out through Image I have regretted not jumping on his Batman. All the things I’ve read and heard have led me to the conclusion that I have truly been missing out on this series so when I heard issue 13 would not only begin a new storyline, but that that storyline would involve the return of  THE JOKER, I was really excited.

First FOOTAGE from Evil Dead Re-Make

Just severael months ago I wasn’t so sure about the idea of an Evil Dead remake. I mean, doesn’t everyone want to know what happens next in the life of Ash (Bruce Campbell) when he… well, when he awoke/returned at the end of whatever version of Army of Darkness you happen to own. In one he returns to S-Mart and is followed by at least one deadite, in another he sleeps for what appears to be hundreds (thousands?) of years and wakes to find the world has fallen into ruin. But after several fantastic updates this week on bloodydisgusting.com  I am excited!!!
