Week 4: Being Frank

So this whole post started off innocently enough, I liked this Frank Brunner splash and this Frank Cho splash so I thought I’d add one or two more Franks’s and give it a cute name like Being Frank. Whoa! There…

Grant Morrison

52 weeks. 52 different writers. 2 trade paperbacks or hardcovers a week. Each week I’ll take a look at a different writer and read two different collected editions from within that person’s repertoire to help in the examination of their work. Grant Morrison is in the spotlight this week, with a look at his work with DC’s Man Of Steel.

I Heart Comics | Contemplating a Hypothesis

I thought I’d chime in this week with a series of contemplations and hypothesis about some recent comic book news and such. Javier Pulido is one of my favourite artists. Straight up. I think his panel layout and his ability…
