So we'll go start with the cheapseats.

Key Issues: Peggy Carter

by SeanerSurfer on January 06, 2015

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:

by King on November 12, 2014

Space court is NOW in session, all rise for the honorable Judge J’shuz.”
 

The court is already in mass disarray, as the metallic bailiff attempts to announce the arrival of the betentacled Justice, who seats himself behind his cyber podium and plugs himself into the Non-Bias Engine.

Cadet Jackson, Episode I

by King on November 04, 2014

“Dammit…” the cadet tucks his space-wrench into his trousers as we wipes sweat from his brow. His struggles have been in vain, and he’s running out of precious time.
 

“Fine, I guess it comes down to this; let’s pray this works… it’s, like, my only hope…” in a gesture clearly indicative of doubt, despair, and unmistakable intoxication, Cadet Jackson reaches for his communicator.

MONSTER & MADMAN, BEST HORROR COMIC I HAVE EVER READ

by spicytoilet on October 08, 2014

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.

Fantastic Fathers Week 2 - Solve Everything

by David HJ on September 12, 2014

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.

Fantastic Fathers Week 1 - Prelude

by David HJ on September 01, 2014

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.
