Absolution

January 19, 2010

On behalf of all the comic readers out there, we want more Absolution.

Yes, the cop turns vigilante is repeated through crime noir.  Add a killer Green Lantern power and a thinking man’s Dexter. We have a  winner.

Do you remember your 1st trip to a comic book shop

January 9, 2010

I had bought comics on and off at supermarkets, hallmark cards and newstand, but a college comic store opened in Dekalb run by Paul Bisgaard. the inflation of the 70’s made people sell them and I bought many of the older x-men for 50 cents apiece. The title was reruns and no one seemed to care that Neal Adams and Jim Steranko did some specular art there.
