Sir Jon Reviews: (Brendon Small’s) Galaktikon #1

Albatross Funnybooks, Eric Powell’s (of The Goon fame, for those unaware) venture into comic book publishing, has risen to the attention of the Pint O’ Comics team, with brief reviews of some of their titles on the podcast. As such, when a new title with impressive cover art was solicited in June, I had to Read More

Sir Jon Reviews: Forbidden Gallery #2

© ACP Comics

Publisher William Mull wisely sent me a preview copy of Forbidden Gallery issue two, a comic that straddles the lines of horror, suspense and dark drama while having the appearance of a title that time-travelled from 1970. As a fan of anthologies and all of the templates that Forbidden Gallery provides, the book is fully Read More

Pint O’ Comics stormed into the Mohegan Sun casino on Friday, the 18th of August, with all the good intentions of making new friends, finding new comics and meeting fellow pop culture enthusiasts of all sorts.

Sir Jon Reviews – Betty and Veronica #1-3

Icons come in many forms, more so when it comes to comic books. The basic imagery of the chest symbols of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are easily recognizable across nations, as are color schemes and costumes. Some icons are known more regionally and some become forgotten over time. When it comes to the characters Read More

The State of the Industry, July 2017

It’s been nearly a year since the last sales recap of State of the Industry, an unintentionally long respite between From the Hip and Pint O’ Comics. Your humble archivist apologizes, as these missives have become such an important part of at least one of you readers’ lives. Many changes have occurred during the year, Read More

In the inaugural issue of LAST SONG, creator and writer of the title, Holly Interlandi explains in her afterward that she thinks “rock and roll is enough” when telling a tale about rock music stars in comic book form.

Sir Jon Reviews – Your Black Friend

It’s been a few weeks since I read Ben Passmore’s YOUR BLACK FRIEND, a one-shot comic book that I couldn’t pass on ordering when it was solicited through AdHouse Books some months back. I’ve always enjoyed slice-of-life comics, especially done-in-one tales similar to Damon Hurd’s work like MY UNCLE JEFF. I gave YOUR BLACK FRIEND Read More

Rise of the Dungeon Master – A Review

It’s hard to say when Gary Gygax affected me the most. I recall marveling over his alliterative name, wondering how it was pronounced, if it was real, and if it was, if he liked it. I thought ‘Gygax’ was cool, myself. It wasn’t any surprise to me then, when variations on the name popped up Read More

The Ringo Awards

Mike Wieringo was a fan-favorite artist known for his long stretches of work with writer Mark Waid, at both Marvel and DC Comics. His art was fresh and stylistically distinct, that of a true comic book professional. Sadly, he left the mortal coil far too soon, in 2007, at the age of 44. Leaving a Read More
