Hello everyone, hope all is well. The second half of a two part DC Comics, "Generations Shattered and Forged" just hit the stands. It's a good "everything about the DCU" type series. Give it a try and I don't think you'll be let down. And while we're on the subject, pick up ANY of the Marvel Action books or digest reprints. These are mainly for kids, but the good stories and art will remind you that we all have a little bit of kid laft in us. Marevel Chillers just finished a 4 parter from this engaging line this past week. So take care and remember to adopt a (any one that's recent) new comic book today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. I hope everyone had the chance to spend time with a loved one, even if it's just the memory of a loved one or at least a quick catch up on the phone with a good friend. I did all three. I spent time with Liz, looked at pictures of my late father (who taught me to read on comics) talked comics on the phone with a long time buddy of mine and wound up going out to buy a bunch of COMICS! Yay! Well, this IS a comic book blog so you knew I had to fit the subject in there somewhere. Take care and remember to adopt a comic (one with love stuff or heroic super action in it) book today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. Yes, according to the title of this blog, I am using comics to test my brain and vision after my car accident 11 weeks ago. Head still hurts and hard to see and you know you've been hurt bad when you are reading a Donald Duck comic book to test your vision and wind up putting a bookmark in your comic because you are too tired. Yikes!! Take care and adopt a (anyone that you can read clearly after a severe concussion) comic book today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. No, the Cleveland Browns are not in the big game and that's because of the refs that blew the call on the helmet to helmet contact and after that I think they could have got past the Bills! So what does this have to do with comics and a comic book blog? Did you ever hear of the Marvel's "New Universe" "Kickers Inc?" Super hero football players! Take care and adopt a comic (with sports in it) book today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. No, according to the title above, I really did not get sworn at while at a comic con, rather I got con...cussed, a significant concussion during the holidays due to a car accident. So what does that have to do with comics. Well, to begin with, this blog is my therapy to get back to writing (I am an author and columnist you know) a little bit at a time. Also due to my vision problems, inability to see well, (and severe headaches) I need someone to get my comics (I cannot drive currently) for me every week. And once I do get them...I CAN'T READ THEM! A true crisis (with a nod to the old JLA comics, this crisis is on "Earth Chris) to muddle through. Take care and remember to adopt a (anyone that you can see properly) comic book today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. This is the first new week of the new year and just yesterday was the first new "comic book day" of 2021. And this new year is bringing some problems to us comics aficianado...and that is that comics seem to be shrinking and going away. That mostly seems to be through the machinations of DC Comics and thie online only future plans. But that is another story for another blog. So read a comic and enjoy some new good ones, like Marvel Action "Avengers," and the DC "Generations." Both are pretty good comics. So get your hands on a new comic while you can! Take care and adopt (a new one while you can) comic today!

Hello everyone, hope all is well. Haven't written in a while due to an injury, but Christmas cannot wait! At this time of year, many comic companies put out silly, sentimental stories that tug at the heart strings. Call them "Cute and cuddly with capes!" So go buy a friend one of these or pull one out of your collection and enjoy the season! To make it easy for you, just look for a comic with snow on the cover, they are usually the right ones. Take care and adopt (one with Santa on the cover) a Christmas comic book today!
