The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 3 Recap

The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 3 Recap Somebody has been killing the Saviors on The Walking Dead. Although it’s hard to work up too much sympathy for Negan’s former foot soldiers. Last week’s episode showed us the death of Justin, a Savior who really had it coming. But his buddies weren’t going to let his disappearance go, especially since he was only the latest Savior to go missing. In The Walking Dead season 9 episode 3, the survivors are going to get their answers…but they won’t like wh...

Batman #255 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams Batman v1 #255, 1973 - Neal Adams' dominant image of Batman and the werewolf would have been extraordinary as its own cover. Sadly, the effect is diminished by the smaller mediocre panels. The cover story features a crackpot doctor who treats a desperate man with lycanthropic disease. Neal Adams' last work on the series is also among his finest. His sequencing of the werewolf's [Author: Ted F]

Header Bidding

You may be aware of that New York Times story about how "The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law." This is, quite obviously, hateful bigoted bullshit, and we should not stand for it. Call your representatives, donate to trans rights organizations, look o...

Secrets of Haunted House #1 - Alex Nino art

Secrets of Haunted House v1 #1, 1975 - Finding a fish-like creature on the beach, a couple adopts it as a pet, unaware of its power and ambition. Alex Nino lures in readers with an unnerving drawing style. On the first page, his humorous portrait of the narrator reeling in a fish serves as a metaphor for the creature and his hapless victims. As usual, Nino's drawings (often bordering on the [Author: Ted F]

Nexus - Comic Shopping in Reykjavik

by RM Rhodes One of my great pleasures in life is visiting comic book stores in other countries when I am travelling. I recently went to Reykjavik and went out of my way to visit the local comic book store Nexus. Nexus is towards the outskirts of the city, away from the commercial city center. In fact, it's actually surrounded by apartment buildings and it comes across as a place where locals spend time.  Next door to the store proper are a couple of empty storefronts that are well-l...

PC WEENIES turns 20 today!

October 21st, 2018 marks two decades my endeavor of making comics online. I started PC WEENIES while I was still working as a new engineer, fresh out of school. At the time, I was 27 years old, single, and had plenty of time on my hands. The idea for the characters and concept came about while in the midst of a shower. A few hours later, sitting outside with my sketchbook, I drew the very first versions of Bob, Pam and Milton. The very first strip was drawn in my sketchbook. You can see it in...

Spectacular Spider-man v2 #55 - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-man v2 #55, 1981 - Spider-man reels from the explosive power of Nitro. Rather than using the more common radiating lines to simulate an explosion, Frank Miller opts to show the transformation from villain to detonation. While not entirely convincing, the impressionistic background makes this one of Miller's most artfully drawn covers. Other [Author: Ted F]

Star Spangled War Stories #124 - Joe Kubert art

Star Spangled War Stories v1 #124, 1965 - Rescued at sea, a delirious GI recounts a tale of battling dinosaurs with his fellow soldiers. Joe Kubert appears to have contributed the soldier's face on the cover, but not enough to be significant. Inside, the story pages are rife with prehistoric creatures, drawn from different angles to emphasize scale. Admittedly, there's more visual interest than [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Western Roundup #19 - Russ Manning art, mis-attributed Alex Toth art

Western Roundup v1 #19, 1957 - This one hundred page giant contains a herd of stories, but only one by Russ Manning. A group of women find themselves up against a gang of robbers, who ultimately find more than they bargained for. This Dale Evans tale is all-too-brief but confidently drawn. The demonstration of her roping skills on page five is especially good. Manning's art is attractive and [Author: Ted F]

Archie Cancels Marvel Digests

Archie’s Marvel digests, where they reprinted various Marvel comic stories in a smaller format, are ending. The Diamond Previews cancellation notices for November list Marvel Comics Digest #9, featuring X-Men and Wolverine, and Marvel Comics Digest #10, dedicated to Spider-Man, as cancelled by publisher. Could this be a side effect of Marvel’s deal with IDW? IDW is now putting out Marvel kids’ comics, but the difference is, Archie was reportedly strong in supermarkets (thus the digest format, wh...

A Warner Streaming Service Shut Down by New Owner

The glory days of video streaming, where one or two services could get you all you wanted to watch, may be coming to an end as more companies seek to monetize their own content. Now that AT&T owns Time Warner, they are shutting down DramaFever, a service dedicated to Korean drama and other Asian programming that launched in 2009 and was acquired by Warner in 2016. (This comes after the same division shut down Warner Archive Instant earlier this year.) [...]
