Last updated on December 5th, 2011 at 01:55 pmUsually when I think of technology and cutting edge Archie Andrews isn’t really the face I think of. I think of Archie driving a jalopy and a making dated references to stuff that was dated even back in the 90s. I mean, this isn’t a jab – these are the things that…

Last updated on May 31st, 2013 at 09:25 amIt’s very rare these days to find a writer/artist getting their own on-going series. (Well, unless you’re Paul Pope.. but I’m sure even he had to start somewhere – Kodansha if memory serves.) So the fact that Jeff Lemire, a nice Canadian boy who’s won acclaim for his Essex County series of…

Last updated on October 27th, 2011 at 08:46 pmGreetings Comic Book Fans! This past weekend was Fan Expo down in Toronto. Every year, my buddies and I make a weekend of it. We get a hotel, we go out for food and drinks, and we spend way too much money. This year was probably the best one in recent memory.…

Last updated on January 25th, 2012 at 05:12 pmCount the pages!  Examine the comic thoroughly before you buy it. Count the pages, check for the coupons, and look for tears, creases, stains and other defects that don’t necessarily show up on the cover. The defects present in the book may already be reflected in the price, it’s up to you…

Last updated on October 27th, 2011 at 08:46 pmLooks like this year’s Fan Expo was indeed bigger and better before with an absolutely crushing number of people attending, almost 60,000! Due to the issues with overcrowing this year, the Fan Expo in 2010 will be held in the North convention centre hall as opposed to the South convention hall where…

Last updated on May 30th, 2013 at 01:54 pmAvenger #71, Marvel Comics, December 1969, 1st Appearance the Invaders Avengers #71 is one of those comic books that is always missing from the Avengers bins.

In what would probably have been much bigger news had not the cryogentically frozen body of Walter Disney not purchased Stan Lee’s vital organs. (Or maybe it’s the much less sinister [but not by much] Disney purchasing Marvel publications – whatever.) The Japanese publisher Kodansha has decided that it will end its manga relationship with Tokyopop and let the licenses…

Last updated on December 24th, 2012 at 08:18 amDanijel Zezelj doesn’t draw comics so much as he chisels with ink. His style is one that can be a little bracing at first; heavy blacks and thick lines dominate his work and gives the impression of – for lack of a better description – a low budget shakey-cam style. Warren Ellis…

Last updated on June 24th, 2012 at 07:24 amNothing like some good old fashioned mud slinging about late art in comic books. Take a gander at the quotes by Bryan Hitch and John Byrne and take away what you can. There’s a lot of great discussion about whether an artist is better if he can get his work done on…
