Free Comic Book Day in Nashville: Aftermath

In retrospect, I feel I should have made last week’s column promoting Free Comic Book Day. Maybe even post twice last week. (*gasp*) Unfortunately, that is then and this is now, the week following Free Comic Book Day. Really quick, what is Free Comic Book Day? The first Saturday in May, participating comic shops across…

DIY Craft Project: Comic Collages!

Beware anyone with scissors, glue, and a spare weekend. As my fellow comic book fans are aware, we tend to collect a surplus of individual comic issues that we generally don’t care about. Usually because they aren’t that good or we have no interest in reading again. We often end up with a lot of…

DC’s New 52 Trailers Fail to Sell?

Here we have the extended promotional trailer for DC Comic’s New 52 initiative, where they reboot or create 52 titles in September. I’ve blogged about this before, but I find myself becoming less optimistic that this cheap gimmick will continue the stories I’ve been caring about lately or create anything that actually means something and lasts…

DC’s 52 Title Pick-Up

The world was set ablaze earlier this month when DC Comics announced that they would be restarting or debuting 52 titles this September. Finally, with the announcement of Grant Morrison tackling the perennial super hero title Action Comics, the world now knows what books to expect this fall. (Click here for Comic Book Resources complete list…

The Pull List – Week 13 & 14, 2011

And yet again I missed a week. I didn’t actually buy anything last week, so oh well. At least I’ve had my last two twitter spree posts to keep you entertained. But now, it’s all about the comics, and with not getting last week’s books until this week, there are a lot of them. What…

The Pull List – Week 12, 2011

Real quick, before I run off to MidSouthCon in Memphis, I’m going to get up this week’s Pull List. If you’re visiting MSC, check out the Gundam and Tokusatsu panels I’ll be on. Otherwise, tell me what comics you’re looking at in the comments.

The Pull List – Week 10 & 11, 2011

I finally missed a week. Didn’t even make it to the big 1-0. Oh well. Now I get to put more titles in one post, including this week’s Pick of the Week. Did I miss something these past two weeks? Do you have a book you want to talk about? Talk about it in the comments.

No Pull List – Week 9, 2011

And… I got nothing. This was a lack-luster week for me in terms of comic buying, as nothing really interested me enough to make a purchase. Still, as per a resolution, I’m updating this every week. So now I bring you a No Pull List post (a.k.a. filler). And of course, there’s the usual question. What…

The Pull List – Week 8, 2011

Ouch. SEVEN BOOKS THIS WEEK. My wallet is hurt. A bunch of good Marvel books came out this week (including a much-needed second printing). I keep wanting to cut back on books, and I do in a way (Superman and Wonder Woman are out of the list), but then I keep picking up new books.…
