  • DeCarlo Rules: I thought the ad money was only a piece of the webcomics big picture, with the other pieces being commission work and print collections of past webcomics, and word-of-mouth that leads to paying assignments from established publishers. It seems like Gisele just has too much talent to stay out of the game for long, and if nothing else, minus the expenses of hosting and time spent creating webcomics, she ought to be able to make a living just doing covers (which pay better than interior pages), if nothing else.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I hope they continue reprinting those Jughead stories from the early 2nd series issues (late 1980s) in World of Archie digest. Maybe not, because that was a special Time Police section, but I can always hope. Loverboy Jughead, Skatepunk Jughead, Snax Headjug. The weirder the better.
    November 06, 2017, 09:29:09 AM
  • Jabroniville: The next issue was a pretty great one- Jughead swears off girls by writing songs about how awful women are, which makes the girls at the shows fall in LOVE with him. Eventually, Betty & Ronnie refuse to play another sexist number, and he's finally consoled by ETHEL of all people (who really got the short end of the stick with the Debbie/Joani arc).

IT CAME FROM... THE 50-CENT BIN !!
I'm always looking for interesting-looking and weird comics (or comix, as the case may be). All of these ones were in B&W (almost always an indicator of small circulation, for these older comics).

BLACK HOLE #1 [Kitchen Sink Press 1995] - Okay, so not particularly obscure. Pretty weird though, and difficult to describe. It got me interested enough in Charles Burns to put this on my reading list of things to pick up when I get the time. While no explanations were forthcoming in this issue for the somewhat hallucinogenic goings-on, it still felt complete enough in itself as a single issue, and managed to evoke a certain ambiance.

URBAN LEGENDS #1 [Dark Horse 1993] - Interesting collection of one- and two-page strips by a variety of creators, some well-known, some not, just as with the various legends (such as "Babysitter and the Psycho Caller", "Earwig", and "Baby in a Microwave" which are familiar, while others are lesser-known or more obscure or just totally invented). Well worth the time.

DINOSAUR BOP #1 [Fantagraphics/Monster Comics 1991] - Some kind of post-apocalyptic caveman story done in a Kirbyesque (but not slavishly so) style, with kind of a 1950s-greaser influence. It's a continued story. Too bad I didn't find any subsequent issues, as I sort of got into the story before it ended with "to be continued".

SPIDER BABY COMIX #1 [Steve Bissette/SpiderBaby Grafix 1996] - A self-published collection of some of Steve Bissette's older stories and collaborations, with about 1/4 of the comic at the back devoted to text pages (which were just as interesting, if not more so). Bissette's an iconoclastic and uncompromising creator with definite ideas about the comics biz and what's wrong with it, and he's not afraid to spell it out. More than a little self-indulgent, but I guess when you self-publish that's your right. The stories themselves were enjoyable, if somewhat unmemorable, as shorts often are.

07/21-07/23:

CRIMINAL: THE DELUXE EDITION HC VOL 01 (collects the stories Coward, Lawless, and The Dead and the Dying)
CRIMINAL: THE DELUXE EDITION HC VOL 02 (collects the stories Bad Night, The Sinners and The Last of the Innocent)
SAVAGE SWORD OF CRIMINAL (magazine-format one-shot, 2015)
DEADLY HANDS OF CRIMINAL (magazine-format one-shot, 2016)

THE FADE OUT: THE DELUXE EDITION HC (collects issues #1-12)

CRIMINAL is a "Mature Audiences" crime noir series by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Except for the 2 magazine-size one-shots, I had not previously read any of the stories in floppy comic format. The 2 magazine one-shots are homages/metacomics stories that juxtapose a hard-boiled crime story taking place in the 1970s with pages out of a black & white magazine comic imitative of the style of comics published by Marvel (Savage Sword of Conan, Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu) in that same time period, by showing someone in the story reading the comic, then cutting to multi-page homages to comics done in that style. The two Deluxe Edition hardcovers also contain metacomics (a comic within the comic story that somehow relates to events in the framing story). Bad Night has as its main character a comic strip artist who draws a strip called "Frank Kafka", which is drawn in the style of Dick Tracy, but events in the strip continuity reflect the writing style of Franz Kafka.

The story that took me totally by surprise was The Last of the Innocent. It's a 4-issue story arc (originally published in 2011) that seems to take its inspiration from the "Archie Marries..." stories in LIFE WITH ARCHIE magazine that had debuted the year before. It is indeed a grim and gritty, dark and twisted tale of one "Riley Richards", who returns from the big city to his small-town home of "Brookvale" because of his father's impending death of stomach cancer. Flashbacks in the story are one-page sequences drawn in the simplified cartoony style of a teen humor comic book, which take place years earlier when Riley was in high school. This really requires a much more lengthy review which I promise to get to soon on my review page.

Yay manga. I've been reading tons of that lately.

I usually get anywhere from 10 to 20 volumes each month.  I'm way behind in my reading, but I plan to start getting caught up with the manga once I get caught up with the regular comics.

I should have that second volume of Leiji Matsumoto's QUEEN EMERALDAS by next week. English-language translations of older manga are rare, so it's always an event when one comes along. So now we at least have a translation of Matsumoto's spinoff character from SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK, but still no translation of Matsumoto's original Harlock manga that preceded it. I'll never be able to figure out the thinking of the companies doing these adaptations. It stands to reason that Harlock is the better-known character, so you'd think if a business agreement was reached between an English-language manga publisher (even if it is the Japanese publisher Kodansha) and Matsumoto, they'd begin with his best-known series in the English-speaking world, starting with Space Battleship Yamato and Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Viz reprinted 5 volumes of an English translation of Matsumoto's next best-known series, the 18-volume Galaxy Express 999, but that's been about it for English translations of his major works.
