Fathers and Sons

Okay, I haven’t read any Batman comics regularly in the past few years.  I read Batman: RIP and didn’t care for it.  Even though I’m a HUGE Tim Drake fan, I walked away from Robin once it became Red Robin.  I’d simply had enough of the craziness in the Bat-verse and wasn’t interested in Grant […]

Alpha Flight Funnies

As some of you may remember, I’m a big Alpha Flight fan.  Yes, they are the laughing stock of the Marvel superhero jet-set, but I still love them.  Thanks to Rob over at The Aquaman Shrine, I stumbled across this series of Alpha Flight comic strips by James Duncan.  They are hilarious!  Below I’ve presented […]

Malibu Ultraverse Origins

As I wrote earlier this week, Malibu’s Ultraverse was full of creativity and energy.  I’ve come across an issue entitled Ultraverse Origins that was published eight months after the Ultraverse line launched.  This book contains some good, succinct origin tales for many of the characters.  Today I’m presenting just a handful of these origin stories.

Below are several DC Comics related keychains.  The […]

I Miss the Ultraverse

I miss the Ultraverse.  It was a shining star that burned bright and was extinguished before it’s time. Back in early 1993, Malibu Comics launched a line of superhero titles under the Ultraverse imprint.  It was designed to be a shared universe where the characters could crossover and interact whenever the writers wanted. The early […]

Comic Book Themed Wrist Watches

I’ve owned a few comic book related watches over the years.  Most have moved on to the great temporal graveyard in the sky, however, I’ve hung on to a couple worth sharing. Below is a Fossil watch from 1989 featuring a fantastic drawing of the Joker.  I’m fairly confident the artist was Kyle Baker.  I […]

Halloween Post-Game Report

Halloween at our house went pretty well!  The kids had a great time trick-or-treating with my wife while I stayed home and handed out goodies.  In addition to candy, we handed out free comic books.  The comics were a big hit with the neighborhood kids and their parents (click here for more information on the […]
