Monday Mornin' Musings Department:

Sometimes the darnest images pop into your head while you're shavin'. Of all things,



popped into our cranium today for some truly unfathomable reason.

Now, we came along near the end of its original run but were strangely fascinated by writer Michael Fleischer's handle on the character.



Anyone else? ... eek


Smacks me of old Eastwoood. Not Leone so much, just... Clint.

Speaking of Titans, no one has mentioned the excellent Nick Cardy, artist extraordinaire of Teen Titans, Aquaman, and Bat Lash.

I loved his work on TEEN TITANS, Cardy's inking on those late 60's issues was much more polished than some of his 1971-74 DC covers- Great layouts, no doubt by Infantino, but his inking on those disappointed me. It offendeth mine eye, if you will.

Another fun thread from neotrinity! And I say this as someone who was always more into Marvel...

Anything to say about Joe Kubert's Unknown Soldier? I ask because while I never had many of these comics, the core idea always intrigued me, and I did enjoy the small handful of old issues I'd gotten in a trade - enough so that I dressed as the character for Hallowe'en two different years in my youth...

I just heard last night that Muriel Kubert, wife of Joe and mother of artists Andy and Adam, has died of breast cancer. Joe's TOR comic book is currently coming out from DC Comics, and it's exceptional work by a guy who actually started out in comics in 1938, before Superman's debut! He was just a kid back then, sweeping floors and erasing extraneous pencil marks from pages, but the amazing thing is that he's still vigorous and very close to the top of his form seventy years later! Also, he's a great guy, one of the true princes of the industry. I never had the good fortune to meet his wife, but she must have been wonderful if she was married to Joe.

As long as we are discussing DC artists of years gone by:

Mike Sekowsky (Justice League of America)
The team of Andru and Esposito
Bob Brown and Irv Novick(who had a memorable runs on Batman)
as did Don Newton.

DC rules . . . Marvel drools.

Make mine DC!

Oh, and -- IMHO -- Marvel is for kids and 30-year olds who still live at home.

Just Cause It's U, Chockful Department:

Since we haven't kept track of the comics scene in eons (not Barbara and Michael's big grin), we're gonna give ya the benefit of the doubt - rather than the doubt of the benefit - that you're referrin' to D.C. Contemporary and not Marvel during the Sixties (see our other Distinguished Competition thread).

Don't get me wrong, Matrix Mama, I appreciate the late great King (of the Kirby variety) and I love me some early Steve Ditko (pre-Ayn Rand wink) and two of my favorite characters are Marvel characters (Doctor Strange and Magneto); but I stopped reading "current" Marvel (aside from Marvel Zombies) after some dreadful continuity choices. Joe Quesada is one of the worst editors in history.

But, yeah, the 60s and when Marvel started to get "cosmic" . . . hell yeah, I'm all over that.

Oh yeah, and I loved Warren Ellis' run on Next Wave.

I just picked up this hardcover from Dark Horse a week or two back.

Gorgeous presentation of Wrightson's work and Shelley's story...

The cover is kind of a cloth cover.... and some bone head decided it would be acceptable to put a sticker over the cloth, with the barcode and price information.

And if you remove that sticker, it leaves some residue on the cloth.

Not cool.

Good call, NeoT. I've been a big fan of Mike Grell's work for years. It seems almost astonishing that a good film version of Jon Sable's origin story does not exist...

Apparently, Grell is returning to the WARLORD over at DC very soon, which makes me soooo happy.

In addition to being a great writer, he also draws some very exciting artwork, not to mention, incredibly beautiful women.
