Hey, Slate — Shut the hell up!

Friday, January 26th, 2007

So, did everyone see this article on Slate? It’s mainly about Heroes, which I love, but it’s a real backhanded slap at comics. Man, I think it’s a bunch of crap. “Starting in the 1980s…” Look I’m not the oldest comic fan I know, not even close really, but has this writer ever checked out […]

Who is Cal?

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

“Cal” is Cal Willingham, Fanboy’s best friend. Cal’s a popular jock, but he’s also smart as hell and loves comic books, especially old comics from the 1980s and even earlier.

What’s With Kramer?

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

I gotta get serious for a minute, gang… Okay, here’s what the AP said: “Michael Richards said Monday he spewed racial epithets during a stand-up comedy routine because he lost his cool while being heckled and not because he’s a bigot.” I wasn’t involved. I have seen the video, it’s pretty rough, and I’m sure […]

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

what does everyone think of this STAN LEE MEETS… Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and all these other characters? they’ve got my buddy’s boy Bendis on the line for one of them, right, and Joss Whedon, whose Astonishing X-Men is definitely all that, BUT… what’s the deal man? just more cornball hype? it’s cool that Stan created […]

Ultimate Spider-Man – Volume 16

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Remember how positive I was about USM #99 and how I thought maybe the issues before it had been somewhat… lacking? Well, I was right. Only it’s worse than I remembered. I just picked up the trade paperback (it was sort of a slow week for me, though I did pick up a few other […]

Review: Ultimate Spider-Man #99

Thursday, August 24th, 2006

I didn’t love the last couple storylines in Ultimate Spider-Man. Of course BMB’s “average” story is better than most creators’ best work. The last few have just left me wanting his best work. Then he decided he was going to take on “The Clone Sage,” which in the regular Marvel universe stunk on ice. It’s […]

Spider-Woman: Origin HC

Monday, August 21st, 2006

Here’s a review of the new hardcover collecting the Spider-Woman: Origin hardcover. From SCOOP: Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers) and Brian Reed (Ultimate Spider-Man video game) teamed up to write the mini-series collected in this new hard cover. Their objective was to somehow weave together the sometimes highly contradictory different versions of Spider-Woman’s origin. […]

Whassup with “Mighty Avengers?”

Monday, August 14th, 2006

OK, so I was gone for a couple weeks on the Dreaded Family Vacation (complete with Annoying Reunion), but now I’m back and I’m reading about this series MIGHTY AVENGERS. It took me a minute, but I gather it’s a new series, not just a re-titled NEW AVENGERS. Now that Luke Cage is with Captain […]
