John Byrne is not a Neal Adams fan.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 1 Jan 2009 8:40 AM

From Fantastic Four #263 (1984):

P.S. If this post makes no sense to you, be grateful. 

UPDATE: My pal Robert Goodin pointed out to me that the name of the character referred to in this panel, a Mr. Alden Maas, is an anagram for Neal Adams. John Byrne was a good 20 years ahead of the curve of the science community when it came to dismissing a crackpot! I knew re-reading these comics would pay dividends.

R.I.P. Bettie Page

First Dave Stevens, then Forrest J. Ackerman, and now Bettie Page. 2008 has been a brutal year for some of the icons of my Southern California adolescence.

World Peace Hulk
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 12 Nov 2008 7:50 PM

James Kochalka couldn't have done it better. Hard to believe this gentle soul would be waging war against the world a mere 28 years later. From Defenders #75 (1979) by Ed Hannigan, Herb Trimpe and Mike Esposito. That Greenpeace address is about a mere mile and a half  from our office; I don't think it's still there. Oh, and NEVER accuse the Defenders of being intolerant. 

Question of the Day

Is it just me or is the Bat-Manga "controversy" the biggest comics non-issue since "is Kramer's Ergot 7 too expensive"?

Comics for Obama? How about Obama for Comics?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 28 Oct 2008 11:07 AM

This quote from a childhood friend of Barack Obama's jumped out at me in this great Guardian profile of people who knew Barack Obama growing up:

"Grandpa bought me all the DC Comics books, and I was the only one who had them, so [Obama] and Yanto would borrow the books and copy pictures of Batman and Spider-Man out and ask me to judge which was better. [Obama] was always better than Yanto. Even Yanto always agreed with that. [Obama] had a great eye."

 Yes, we are gaining a president, but we have lost a cartoonist. 

Portable Grindhouse Is Coming...

It will be a little late and is turning out to be one of the most production-heavy books possible, but it is coming...

BEARS vs HORSES

I just put a bunch of scans online from the ridiculous book idea I haven't had the money/energy/dimwittedness to pursue: Bears Versus Horses culls together myriad illustrations from vintage sources which depict animals in conflict with each other.

Apologies and thanks to the sources on the web from which I've garnered much of this imagery. These are mostly taken from Ebay auction listings I can't afford to "win."
