Six Decent Reasons Why 'Marvel Versus DC' Doesn't Entirely Suck

by Wombatapult on December 11, 2012

 



The 90's were hard times for comics. I could spout off an abundance of cliches regarding Rob "Pouches" Liefeld and the general bombast of the industry at the time, but that would be cheap.


All I really have to say is: Superman had a mullet. Anything else one can say about the dark blot of comic book history between 1986 and 1998 becomes redundant in light of this.

8 examples of exceptional art in comics: Part 1

by Mike Busch on December 11, 2012

 

Comics are a wonderful literary medium; in their pages we find some of the most heroic characters, fantastically enticing stories, and remarkably cerebral plotlines. They possess the funniest of dialogues, and detail the most tragic of misfortunes. They give us all of the wonders that we find in the greatest of novels, but also something more. The true draw of a comic isn’t simply its masterful writing—it’s the combination of an excellent script and beautiful illustration. It is the artwork that truly sets the comic apart.

A tribute to the Martian Manhunter

by john on November 16, 2012

The Martian Manhunter has always been one of my favorite DC characters. The Martian Manhunter or J'onn J'onzz (his real name)  has never been a bestselling character but has proven to be a appreciated character never theless.

Top 10 scariest/disturbing/most shocking moments in comics

by lucstclair on October 30, 2012

Before you read any further, there are many spoilers on this list. You’ve been warned! With Halloween just around the corner, I started to have dark thoughts, thoughts of what would be the scariest moments in comic books. They could be moments of fear & despair or disturbing moments or even moments of pure shock value. This was a challenge coming up with a top 10 list, it would’ve been easier to write a list of horror movie moments, because movies have sound, music and jump scares to really give you a fright.

Ottawa Comiccon 2012

by lucstclair on June 25, 2012

Hey everybody, I know this blog’s a little late, but I’d like to write about our Ottawa Comiccon 2012 experience from May 12, 2012. This was the very first & official Comiccon for Ottawa and it was a blast to attend. With the help of this very website, Stephen and I had our very own media passes to promote CTG. With free passes around our necks and smiles on our faces, we showed up early and waltzed in an hour before the official opening.

“My own fantasy comics”

by lucstclair on March 04, 2012

You’ve heard of fantasy football? Well this is fantasy comics. I’ve often wondered if I was the big cheese at Marvel, DC or any other comic book company, that I’d imagine I’d have some sort of pull to get the projects I want to see put together. Insane crossovers, some of my favourite writers & artist teaming up and maybe some new super hero titles I’ve only dreamed of. So without further ado, I present to you, in no particular order… “My own fantasy comics”

“New comics for April 2012”

by lucstclair on February 15, 2012

Since there were no new comics because of a late shipment today (sniff sniff) and I couldn’t leave my favourite comic book store empty handed, I purchased copies of Previews & Marvel Previews. I thought I’d comment on some upcoming comics coming out in April, so here goes…
