• One of the many titles we were excited about from this past January’s Image Expo was Brian Buccellato’s Sons of the Devil. Brian has been busy the past few years as the best selling writer of the Flash, Detective Comics, and Injustice. This will mark his second foray into the exciting world of creator-owned comic books. Joining him on this original psychological horror thrill ride is up-and-coming artist Toni Infante.

  • Here we are in the second installment of the Watchtower. Now I did promise to post every week, and I am duely sorry about last week. My dog had an unfortuante illness and I had to make correction. Anyway where we go!!

    As always we will be going in least price to greatest price. Although, before we start I just want to make a quick mention in lieu of price. Buy Adam Warlock books! You can still get them cheap. I just got the first and second appearance for $75 total and the books are in outstanding condition. If I had my camera with me I'd post pictures, but they will come
  • Hey, this is the inaugural installment of my Watchtower series which tells you which books you can pick up for cheap which could make you some money. You may remember the post I did earlier this week about Peggy Carter's key issues, the star of Marvel's Agent Carter. Or look awesome in your collection - either way, right? So we'll go start with the cheapseats.

  • Marvel's Agent Carter premiered tonight and it was superb. It filled Twitter to the brim, celebrities from all walks of life tuned in, and it showcased Marvel's dedication to gender equality. Peggy Carter has been in 98 issues in nearly 50 years but there are some that are going to be more valuable than others, way more valuable. Here are my candidates for her key issues:

    These are the first appearances of Peggy Carter though they come in flashbacks and she is unnamed. You're probably wondering what good that does a

    At Detroit Fanfare 2013, Comics the Gathering staff writer Seth “Wombat” Morris got a chance to interview John Ostrander. Ostrander is famously the architect and writer of the classic Suicide Squad comics and acclaimed author of Grimjack, Martian Manhunter, Star Wars: Legacy, and much more.

    Wombat then promptly got bogged down with work and never had time to transcribe his interviews, which sat in a dusty vault for a year...

  • Happy upcoming Hallows Eve everyone, we here at COMICS THE GATHERING really want to get in the spirit and take turns sharing our favorite horror comics.

     

     

    My absolute favorite horror comic book so far was IDW’s Monster & Madman.  It was written by Steve Niles; a writer with a very strong horror/suspense/terror pile of stories to his name.  The amazing creepy art duties were handled by Damien Worm.  His amazing lettering work was present here too.

  • When I was younger, my dad worked quite a bit. He actually still does – he’s a fairly specialized doctor, one of the most qualified in his unit at the hospital he works at. He sees patients, runs clinics, gives consults, and teaches at the local university’s medical school, as well as being on call a few times a month for consultations. He was certainly never absentee, but he worked hard and came home tired, so he didn’t always have a lot of time to just hang out. I know now that that’s something that he had to work on – finding a good balance between being
  • My children are going to be raised by comic books.
     
    I don’t mean that in the Generation Y, absentee parent “raised by TV” sense. Nor do I mean it in the way I consider myself raised by comics. For me, comic books gave body to concepts I knew I wanted to be true. Nothing drove home what it meant to put the well-being of others before your own like Captain America diving in front of gunfire to shield a couple of kids in the Smithsonian in Mark Waid and Ron Garney’s Captain America vol. 3 #3, the first comic I ever read.
