Last night, The Arrow came to Central City. Why? To investigate a murder. What led them to The Flash’s turf? The murder weapon was examined and “I found iron oxide on it. Since Central City has the highest concentrations of iron oxide in the US…”. Iron oxide. As in rust. For real?
Let me start by saying the new Batgirl design is neat. The concept is fun. With that said, there are some story flaws and I think the writer needs to trust the artist more and use fewer words. Except in this panel. See, in the previous panel, Babs had knocked over some tubing before […]
Comics Should Be Good has a great article about my least favorite retcon: That Sam “The Falcon” Wilson was actually a fake personality created by the Red Skull. Who was the real Sam Wilson? A street hustler/pimp who went by the name “Snap”. Ick. Have always hated that this strong, upstanding hero was turned into […]
As I was packing for a move, I noticed something interesting about a map found in one of my daughter’s comics. The map in question comes from Free Comic Book Day 2007’s Li’l Archie* comic. I’ve cropped so the relevant portions stand out. I don’t know what’s better – the “Coochy Canal” under the […]
My daughter read “A Murder Is Announced”, by Agatha Christie for class. We found the below excerpt to be a fascinating example of how slang changes: What sort of a place is Chipping Cleghorn?’ asked Sir Henry.‘A large sprawling picturesque village. Butcher, baker, grocer, quite a good antique shop-two tea-shops. Self-consciously a beauty spot. Caters […]
Bleeding Cool has a great article on some really, really bad science in this week’s Thor. Yes, science. In Thor. Really. Best bit? They close with one of the images clipped by this blog. Thousands of eyes, seeing the image I picked out. I miss that.
Tommy Troy starts out as a Captain Marvel riff, a kid gifted by a mentor with strange powers. Eventually, they jump to him being an adult. A lawyer, no less. Complete with secretary. What? Surely you don’t expect him to pack for himself? And no, the “master” is not meant sarcastically.
Tommy Troy is The Fly. Gifted a magic amulet by an inter-dimensional fly-man (yes, really), he was originally a child who could turn into an adult, then later an adult who became super-powered. His abilities? Vague insect powers. What kind of powers? That’s not how honey is made. For those who know how honey […]
My daughter is doing a science project on “Scientific Inaccuracies In The Silver Age Metal Men Series” (gee, wonder who she takes after). I was explaining the dynamic to her, as she only knows them from Batman: The Brave & The Bold. “So they’re these intelligent, human-like robots that all feel emotion. Except they all […]
Miss the blog? Me too. I want to get back to it, but money troubles keep getting in the way. If you want to help with that, check my new Indigogo campaign. Hope to be back soon.
So much so that they used them without a hat tip of any kind. Sure, my Doctor Fate scans were not scanned by me nor did I write the comic, but if you’re going to take images I selected, cropped etc. from an article on this site, a mention or link would be classy. This […]
Some friends and I have been riffing on the children of Ya’akov [Jacob] and the Justice League, a concept originally thought up by Rabbi Yossie Bloch. What twelve leaguers most fit the attributes given the brothers in the Torah [Bible] and assorted commentaries? Rabbi Josh Yutter gave this NKJV version of the blessings that Ya’akov […]
Oh Colossus…. Whales breath fine on land, thanks. What they can’t do is eat, stand the sun, etc. Not fully back, but that was too weak to let slide.
A friend of mine is in the middle of a Title Search for a house and came across this gem in the old Deed: If you don’t see it, it’s A Covenant to not sell any lots of “Lordship Manor” to Hebrews… aka Jews. Nice.
I haven’t forgotten about the site, really. It’s like this folks, along with the day job, I’m running techcitement.com, which is getting hits in the thousands, and whypelhamparkway.org, a site to promote my old community. We’ve also had some more medical and fiscal fun. Most importantly -we’re relocating this summer from New Jersey to the […]
My apologies for the paucity of posts. I’ve been slammed with work, a baby who just keeps getting sick, and side-jobs. On the plus side, my other blog – techcitement.com – has been going great guns. We had over 400,00 hits on one day last week alone. So I’ve got that going for me which […]
As a user on the “Cheezeburger Network” keeps taking panels I’ve scanned and sometimes even jokes from your comments to make captions, I thought I’d borrow one of their memes… “I’ve seen enough Hentai to know where this is going”. I beg your patience, folks. The toddler has been doing poorly and my Far Better […]
Comic stories are fantastic tales, and require a lot of suspension of disbelief. You have to believe a man will fly for a bit. However, everyone has some thing or things that sets them off and breaks there SoD. As a born and raised Bronx boy, I had one of those moments with the fourth […]
I have to say, the cancellation of Mister Terrific is not coming as a shock. I always enjoyed Michael Holt in the JSA, and was really looking forward to this series. Alas, he went from being the quietly badass third smartest man in the world to a guy who spouted lines like this: I have […]
In Superman #709, the Flash has become a menace. How? “Hey, this strange thing in the bottom of a crater looks like a hat. I think I’ll put it on!” Because, as always in comic books, what is the worst that can happen?
Unknown fact about magnetism, folks. It is apparently yellow. Bonus: the next panel following: That is so very, very kinky.
I hate when comics do this. I guess I get why they didn’t use the actual saying, but… I actually heard that “needle scratching on the record” sound when I read it. I get that saying “backside” might be too “risque”, but they couldn’t have said cheek? In some personal news, I was woken up […]
The dialogue here should have had a bit more reworking before publication, Ah, no Hal. If you have a feeling of superiority, then it actually does mean something to you. Regardless though, what an insanely egotistical sequence. Holy cow. 1,469 hits yesterday! We’ve been breaking a thousand lately, but wow.
