Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 12/12/18

Macallan (top of the line) Animal Man by Grant Morrison HC Book 01 30th Anniv Deluxe Ed Oh, yeah! This collects the first 11 issues as well as Animal Man’s updated origin story from Secret Origins #39. This series gets a lot of acclaim as it rightfully should and it’s easily the most obviously meta…… Continue reading Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 12/12/18

Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 12/5/18

Macallan (top of the line) Border Town #4 You should be reading Border Town. It’s not just that it’s an extremely interesting look into cultures that rarely get screen (or page) time. It’s not just that it connects with current events without being overshadowed by them. Border Town would still be good if that was…… Continue reading Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 12/5/18

Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/28/18

Macallan (top of the line) Well, honestly, there’s nothing coming out this week that I would consider “top of the line.” There are some good books being released, but nothing so great that I would put it up there with Macallan. They can’t all be the best! Jack Daniels (every day) Marvel Action Spider-Man #1…… Continue reading Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/28/18

Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/21/18

Macallan (top of the line) Atomic Robo Greatest Hits I love Atomic Robo. Atomic Robo is comics at its finest. I am currently writing an entire piece on why Atomic Robo is great. I have no idea what is in this comic, but it is $1 and it’s Atomic Robo and that is all you…… Continue reading Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/21/18

Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/14/18

A solid week with a few interesting debuts… Mcallan (top of the line) Mister Miracle #12 Whenever I read an issue of the current Batman book I am struck by fact that the person writing these stories is also writing Mister Miracle. It’s nearly impossible for me to wrap my brain around. I supposed it’s…… Continue reading Weekly Whiskey: Comics Worth Your Money for 11/14/18

Avengers (v1) #319-324, “The Crossing Line” is one of the best Avengers stories of all time.

I had only dabbled in Avengers comics when Avengers #319 was released. I jumped in with issue #300 and the formation of a new and, to be honest, god awful team. I stuck around for a bit after that because the line-up evolved to include not just Captain America, who I liked, but also Quasar,…… Continue reading Avengers (v1) #319-324, “The Crossing Line” is one of the best Avengers stories of all time.

Top 5 90’s Superhero Events

I love 90’s comics. It’s not nostalgia. No, the vast majority of my nostalgia with regards to comics comes from the 80’s, which is when I started reading them. In fact, 90’s superhero comics actually drove me away from comics all together, but 90’s indie comics brought me back. But this post isn’t about those,…… Continue reading Top 5 90’s Superhero Events

Strikeforce: Morituri is the Best Comic You’ve Never Read

Strikeforce: Morituri #20 came out in March of 1988. It would have been cold in Ohio then, but it wouldn’t have stopped me from riding my bike the two miles from my house to the News and Photo Shop, a jack of all trades store that processed photos, sold newspapers, had an extensive selection of…… Continue reading Strikeforce: Morituri is the Best Comic You’ve Never Read

Hoo-Boy! MC2 is 20! Part Two: Going, Going, Gone

Phase Three, 2000-2001 It’s worth noting that while FF and Wild Thing were canceled, Spider-girl at that time was selling well over 36K copies, falling between #56-59 on the top 100 sales chart every month. It wasn’t setting the charts on fire, but it was doing well enough to stick around. It made sense then…… Continue reading Hoo-Boy! MC2 is 20! Part Two: Going, Going, Gone

Hoo-Boy! MC2 is 20! Part One: Spider-girl and Her Amazing Friends

MC2 is short for Mavel Comics 2 and it’s understandable if you’ve never heard of it. It officially launched 20 years ago this month, although its origins began six months earlier in the page of What If? #105. That was the issue that introduced the world to an alternative timeline where Perer Parker and Mary…… Continue reading Hoo-Boy! MC2 is 20! Part One: Spider-girl and Her Amazing Friends
