STAFF PICKS :: Rocky and Bullwinkle #1 :: MARCH 26, 2014

March 25, 2014 By: Andy Mansell Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks andy_staff_picksWhat could be funnier than uniting a Moose and Squirrel to fight the cold War villainy of Boris and Natasha (fresh from their triumphs in War and Peace) and their fearless leader, FEARLESS LEADER? What if you engage the comic book legend and current scribe of the vastly under-rated Garfield comic book Mark Evanier along with perhaps the finest big foot comic illustrator in the business Roger Langridge?  If that isn’t  enough to get you to try this 4 issue mini-series from IDW? Well…. Here’s one thing you don’t see everyday Chauncey–What’s that Edgar? A long overdue Jay Ward Studios cross-over as the denizens of Frostbite Falls, MN meet everyone’s favorite Mountie Dudley Do-Right! Will Snidely Whiplash co-operate with Boris Badenov? Will Natasha fall for Horse and make Nell jealous.  That’s kinda weird.  Anyhoo…  Perhaps a Quisp and Quake cameo? We can only hope.These comics are guaranteed to be a total riot.

STAFF PICKS :: JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS TP VOL 04 :: DECEMBER 05, 2012

December 04, 2012 By: Andy Mansell Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

ANDY’S PICK :: JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS TP VOL 04: The final volume of this essential collection completes the series Jack Kirby developed  in the early ’70s when he was (arguably) at his creative height.  This very affordable paper back edition collects the final issues of his “4th World ” series–The New Gods #11 Forever People #11 and Mister Miracle #10-18.  The series were all cancelled before Kirby could complete the saga.  This inexpensive edition includes the two attempts to wrap the story lines up– “Even Gods Must Die” from The New Gods vol. 2, #6; and the one-shot “On the Road to Armagetto!” along with the full length DC Graphic novel #4 “The Hunger Dogs”;  The intro by Mark Evanier–Kirby Biographer and assistant at the time of the comics original publication.  Evanier goes into detail about the series historical context and this sad tale alone is worth the cover price.  More importantly, along with the insightful look into the economics of comic publishing in the seventies, you also get over 400 pages of exuberant Kirby art and story.   This is a corner-stone of any comics library and a heck of a lot of fun to read and re-read.  Enjoy!
