Tabletop Wisdom: The Germans Scored a Critical Hit

Tabletop Wisdom: The Germans Scored a Critical Hit

By wisdom000 in Features on July 30, 2008

This week, since I’m so late with these, a full six-course meal for your review/spoiler enjoyment! Appetizer: Reign in Hell 1 — by all rights, this should’ve wowed me; a writer I like, a penciller I love, and characters I REALLY love…but blah; I know this is heresy, but I’ve NEVER been a Sienkiewicz fan, especally [...]

Peeing in Your Shower: Deviating the Plot - Local

By Keb Ellis in Features on July 28, 2008

I finally got the last two issues of Local in the mail. I’d almost given up on and forgotten about the series until about a month ago when my friend Nate told me the last issue came out. So yeah, I decided to drag the other ten issues out of my long-box and read [...]

On to the first course: Appetizer: Robin 175 — this book was weird for me; I love Robin; I love Spoiler; I love Nicieza and Joe Bennett; and I’m enjoying R.I.P. almost in spite of myself…but this issue was weak for me; in [...]

Kid D: Superhero Tights in High School

By Daniel in Features on July 22, 2008

I feel like I am a pariah in the comic community. As a teenager I don’t have many people to share my hobby with. This mentality is part of what is killing comics, the negative stigma that it is a low form of art and enjoyment. Teenagers perceive comics as something beneath them. [...]

By Keb Ellis in Features on July 22, 2008

Last week I started talking about how Mike Mignola’s Hellboy bears an incredibly large similarity to Satan from Paradise Lost, and left you with the idea that Hellboy and Earth are mirrors or reversals of Satan and Hell. You can read the article here. I want to continue with this idea and provide some examples [...]
