The Best Part Of Saying Goodbye To Comics

One of the most interesting things about walking away from this great hobby of ours, which is what I did between 1992 and 2002, is finding out what you missed when you return. Both positive and negative.

Heritage 2014 Feb 20-22 Comic Art Signature Auction

This week Heritage wrapped up its 2014 February 20 – 22 Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction, covering a large array of classic covers and stunning artwork. A nice mix of silver age covers, modern classics and a range of strip art. The big winner was the cover to Action Comics issue 15 for $286,800.00, but these five pieces caught my eye.

Best of 2013

With another year coming to a close, I turn my eye to that most time-honoured of traditions: the best-of list. 2013 was a banner year for comics and here are the things that I liked the most.

Captain America #1 Dec17

Captain America #1

I try to approach a new #1 issue with cautious optimism but that is the kind of glass-half-full guy I am. A slew of premier issues have been coming out fast and furious thanks to Marvel Now! and while some have not lived up to expectations (Uncanny Avengers) others can be counted among the...

Avengers vs. X-Men #5 Jun11

Avengers vs. X-Men #5

In the fifth installment of Avengers vs. X-Men, the highly anticipated mini-series featuring Marvel’s mutants and resident team of Avengers, the pace definitively picks up as tensions come to a head between the two teams vying for their personal stakes in Hope’s destiny. However, despite an epic-scoped story, the collective of Marvel architects fail to capitalize on the story’s potential with a lackluster fifth outing which explodes the X-Men mythos with a barrage of head scratching developments.

Avengers vs. X-Men #1 Apr10

Avengers vs. X-Men #1

Similarly to film, summers tend to lend themselves to huge blockbuster story lines in comics. With seven years of planning behind it, Marvel’s 2012 foray pits the Avengers against the X-Men. The Hope-centric plot brings together the world’s greatest heroes and places them on opposing sides; one fights to save the world, the other to preserve its very existence.

Just a Thought | Fantasy Comic League

So this week I decided to do a bit of dreaming. A lot of people like fantasy football or various mythical match ups for UFC fights so why can’t I do the same for comics? Before I begin I would like to point out that none of these are rumors I have heard, things that I know, etc etc. If...
