Brian Cronin’s up to his usual tricks this weekend at COMICS SHOULD BE GOOD with the 225th installment of COMIC BOOK LEGENDS REVEALED. The current installment sheds light on some historical points regarding Walt Kelly, Vince Colletta and the classic story of EC’s PANIC being “banned in Boston.”
THE STEVE DITKO COMIC WEBLOG runs a draft of a new attempt at cataloging all of the appearances of that legendarily reclusive creator’s very personal spokescharacter, Mr. A. Look closely if you’re a Ditko fan because they’re asking for our help to round out and finalize the list.
One of the earliest comic books I gravitated to was DC’s LEGION OF SUPER HEROES.Over the years, the continuity of that series and its various reboots and connections to the larger DCU got so complex that one practically had to have a gudebook to keep up. Here, in a most colorful and impressive form, is that guidebook. It’ll be even more impressive when it’s finished. If you were ever a fan at any period, this site’s for you.
Gerry Conway, Ernie Colon and Martin Pasko were among the creative folks involved with the little-seen 1979-1983 STAR TREK newspaper strip. MEMORY ALPHA analyzes the strip in an obsessively detailed, link-heavy manner that I only wish all comic strips could get.
