I didn’t watch Lost, but please don’t “@” me about not having watched the show; maybe I will one day but I haven’t yet, OKAY?! Apparently there were a few unresolved plot threads in Lost, including whether or not the numbers on the cover of Catwoman #51 had any significance to the events of the […]

Boy I’ll tell ya, I sure would be up for a really awesome Silver Surfer video game. Surfer has only ever had his own video game one time, and it was on the old NES – and it SUCKS! It’s way too hard and super un-fun to play. Consider this week’s post a plea to […]

Well I hope you folks weren’t expecting some sort of Valentine’s themed post from me today in honor of the holiday. The reasons for this decision are variegated, but the primary factor would have to be a distinct lack of key issues featuring romantic imagery in our recently arrived inventory. I’m sure that if I […]

Sexy kissing on the front cover! Ooooooo! Is this sort of content approved by the Comics Code Authority? Oh, wait … there isn’t a Comics Code Seal of Approval on the front cover, so I guess the answer is “No, this content definitely is NOT approved by the Comics Code Authority.” Well I guess I […]

So Marvel relaunched the New Mutants title again; this is of course a good thing, however I’m afraid that I’m going to have to take issue with the use of the term “new” in the title. I hate to get hung up on a minor detail, but so far there are really only two members […]

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 1/3/20

Welcome to 2020! New decade, new old comics. The comics in question are new in as much as we have recently added them to our inventory and made them available for sale. The comics are old in as much as they were not published terribly recently. Hence, “new old comics.” I find that it always […]

I’m pretty tempted to make my usual “buy comics they make great stocking stuffers” joke, but I’m not going to insult the intelligence of anybody who may have read the post that I wrote during the holiday shopping season last year when I made the same admittedly mediocre joke. Let’s just save some time and […]
