Barry Bonds – 715

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Barry Bonds hit homerun number 715 the other day. And as disappointed as I am with him about his personal conduct, it was still a monster shot and the fans still went crazy. I just think they would have gone crazier without the controversy. I was listening to a sports radio talk show and the […]

Captain America

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Okay, Fanboy, I know Captain America’s not the top of your list. I’m just here to tell you why you’re wrong. Yeah, that’s right. You’re wrong. After at least a couple years of false starts, crappy stories and new number ones (at least three times since I’ve been collecting), this current series is just amazing. […]

RIP Alex Toth

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

A lot of people my age haven’t heard of Alex Toth, who just passed away — and I would have been among them if my cousin hadn’t given me a copy of the Image Comics collection of his Zorro work from decades ago. The reprint collection was in black and white (I found out later […]

X-Men: The Last Stand

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

I love it when a comic book movie is good and does well at the box office. This morning as I was getting up I heard that the third X-Men movie has opened huge, the third or fourth best all-time for three days to go for the weekend. What’s even better is that an online […]

Letter: Dear Neil (2)

Friday, May 26th, 2006

(Written by Kyra Sellers) [NOTE from the writer: Some asshole hacked into my computer at home and stole a bunch of private letters that I was never going to send anyway. He’s posting them on the web and I can’t stop him.] Dear Neil, What the HELL? I guess I’ve been behind the times or […]

White People

Friday, May 26th, 2006

OK, something just happened to me that I don’t understand. Maybe some of you out there can help me. My dad was driving me home from lacrosse practice and we had to stop to gas up. I ran into the store to grab some Gatorade. On the way out, I accidentally brushed by this older […]

The Big Dream…

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

Okay, first things first. This isn’t the biggest dream ever. It’s not even my biggest dream. But it’s a dream, and a big one. I want to go to Comic-Con International: San Diego. The one the older guys still call the San Diego Comic-Con (Hey, I’ve read a bunch of old letters pages. It used […]

Fanboy & Goth Girl Go Audio!

Friday, May 12th, 2006

We here at the massive, sprawling world headquarters firmly believe that reading is awesome and that everyone should do more of it. Still, it’s WAY COOL to have your book made into an audiobook. Listeners of the world, get your software humming because The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl is coming to […]

Infinite Crisis vs. Civil War

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Feh! Yeah, that’s right, Doctor Doom said it best about a million years ago when Stan was writing him. Infinite Crisis was a major league disappointment. I’m really sorry that was the case because I’ve been a big fan of Geoff Johns’ writing, but man, this totally missed the mark. I didn’t have the time […]

Free Comic Book Day Discovery

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

The store I went to for Free Comic Book Day was also having a sale. Everything in the back issue bins was a dollar. I picked up, sort of at random, Superman Annual #12, mainly because I liked the cover, I think. Anyhow, I was reading the letters page and this one had a letter […]
