Groundhog Day and Comics Coming

     Hello everyone, I hope all is well.  Groundhogs Day is coming and superheroes don't mind it a bit.  You see, with all of the time traveling they do, they are used to acting like Bill Murray (In that great movie of his named, "Groundhog's Day") and being trapped doing the same thing over and over again.  I'd blame it on Kang, the (Time) Conquerer. 

     But then it hit me, I'm not a comic book super hero and I get caught up doing the same super hero thing over and over myself.  Yep, every Wednesday, which is new comic book day, I go to the comic shop and get my books, week after week after week after...

     But you get the idea.  And strangely enough, I love it, week after week after...

     But you get the idea.  And strangely enough...Okay, enough of that!

     Take care and adopt a comic (but not a time travel one) book today!

More Comic Anniversaries

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  After talking about the 75th anniversary of Batman #1 recently, I thought I'd remind everyone that most of the Justice Society is coming up on #75.  These fellows were the forerunners of the Justice League and appeared in All-Star Comics.  The two biggest guns from that book is Flash and Green Lantern.

     To coincide with this big date, The Alter-Ego magazine is having an in-depth look at the Golden Age, While Back Issue magazine is examining the history of these two heroes in the 70s and 80s.  The mags are coming out in two months, so tell your local comic dealer that you want these magazines, you won't be sorry.

     Take care and adopt a (Flash or Green Lantern) comic today!

Holiday Flu By, Comics Still Here

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Since before Christmas, I've been quite sick with the flu, hence the odd spelling in the title today.  But the good thing is, I spent the last two weeks reading comics and boy was that great!

     There is a new Shield comic out, based on the weekly television show.  Pick it up, it is a wonderful blend of the show and the Marvel line of comics.  Let's hope it stays that way.  Also a new trade paperback collecting all of the Superman two page inserts from the Action Weekly Comics from the mid 1980s just hit the stands.  It's got some of the last Curt Swan art on Superman available before the artist retired and passed away.

     Lastly, there's a new year that popped up last week, putting an end to the 75th anniversary of Batman.  BUT, it also means it is the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Batman in his own comic book...Batman #1, Summer of 1940.  Yahoo, another whole year of me blogging about Batman.

     Take care and adopt a (Batman) comic today.
