Star Wars Resume – Comic Books

Continuing my Star Wars Resume!  In the summer of 1981, I discovered Star Wars comic books.  Prior to then I’d picked up an issue or two like any kid might have picked up Archie or Sad Sack.  When I bought Marvel Comics Star Wars #50 off the shelf, I knew I was buying something different.  […]

Captain Marvel, The Last Good Dead Superhero

When I was growing up, there was a golden rule generally accepted by comic book readers.  The rule was that Jean Grey could come back to life as often as Marvel wanted, but there were four characters that should forever remain dead.  They were: Bucky Barnes, Flash (Barry Allen), Robin (Jason Todd), and Captain Marvel […]

Star Trek Starfleet Academy Sweatpants

Here are some sweatpants I picked up back in 1995.  I really like the novelty of having “Property of Starfleet Academy Athletic Department” printed on them.  Most people don’t even notice what is printed on the sweatpants because so many schools print “Property of … Athletic Department” on their clothes.   Also, if you enjoy Starfleet […]


Marvel Comics Buys Marvelman

If you’ve been reading about San Diego Comic Con, then you’ve already heard that Marvel Comics has purchased the rights to Marvelman.  While Marvel has purchased the rights to Marvelman from the original creator, it’s unlikely they will be able to reprint the 80’s & 90’s material that was published as Miracleman. If you are […]


REVIEW: New Mutants #1

New Mutants #1 from Marvel Comics was released back on May 6.  It took me a while to get to this one as I’m behind in my reading, but it was definitely worth the wait. For me, this comic felt like Homecoming.  All my favorite New Mutants were there, but they had grown up. A […]
