Sir Jon’s Comic Book Review – Sandman Overture

February 1, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

The collected edition of the six-issue mini-series SANDMAN: OVERTURE was released in late 2015, to a relieved readership. The individual issues were a lengthy publishing venture, with the first being released in 2013 and the last in 2015. It had been announced repeatedly as issues were delayed that the writer, Neil Gaiman wanted to retain Read More

26 Comics that Affected Me

January 25, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Spreading the word about excellent comic book series has always been a passion of mine. Typically I tend to focus on one or a small handful at a time, giving each a good amount of attention, hopefully sending some interested parties to them. For this, I’ll be picking a single title from each letter of Read More

State of the Industry – December 2015

January 13, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Sir Jon’s Comic Book Review – Swamp Thing #1

January 4, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

DC Comics have done little to attract my attention as a reader since the inception of their “New 52” Universe, which drove me away in ways my similes and metaphors cry about. Some things, mostly from their withered Vertigo line of titles, find me interested, if I’m not at least skimming them. A few ideas Read More

State of the Industry — November 2015

December 18, 2015 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Charlton Comics

December 3, 2015 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Numerous people have dug into the oftentimes bizarre setup that kept Charlton printing their extremely low-budget titles that occasionally struck gold. For fans of the company, historians of comics or of Read More

State of the Industry – October 2015

November 20, 2015 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Comic sales have been in a slump for over a decade now, regardless of what irregular comic readers or fans of recent film adaptations might assume. It’s a rare feat to see more than a handful of titles hit a circulation mark of over 100k per month, when in times past those numbers would mean Read More

Sir Jon’s Comic Book Review

November 19, 2015 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Yang #8 Some months ago, I traded a handful of comics I’d had in my possession for far too long for a selection of old Charlton comics. Charlton comics have been a passion of mine since I was a kid, long before I knew that the company was based in my home state of Connecticut. Read More

FTH Comics Corner: Superman: American Alien #1

November 15, 2015 Author: John Amenta

Max Landis, writer of the found footage superhero film Chronicle, and son of Hollywood director John Landis, gives writing comics a go, and sets his sights on penning a good Superman story.
