Sir Jon Reviews – Betty and Veronica #1-3

August 15, 2017 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

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

Sir Jon Reviews – Your Black Friend

August 7, 2017 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

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

August 5, 2017 Author: Gary Viola

Titan Comics “Robotech” #1 Writer: Brian Wood Artist: Marco Turini I had two reasons why I picked up this book.  Number one is that it’s “Robotech,” a favorite cartoon from my childhood and college.  But the second reason is Brian Wood.  I really enjoyed his Vertigo series “DMZ,” and Dark Horse’s “The Massive,” so when Read More

G.I. Gary’s Pull List Pick of the Week 7/13/17

Reading through this Wednesday’s comics and I’d say the pick of the week is: Defenders #3 by Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez The third issue of this (currently weekly) comic shows the series is well on its way and going somewhere.  The storyline is separate from what is  going on in the individual titles, so Read More

Rise of the Dungeon Master – A Review

July 8, 2017 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

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.
