State of the Industry – January 2016

February 11, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

A topsy-turvy tail end of 2015 showed that comic books are an extremely volatile medium, nearly as much as the commodities market. Hoping for a strong opening to the New Year, the top 300 list from Diamond Comics gave the impression of increases, though sales dipped overall. The top ten saw an increase to eight Read More

The Suicide Squad – Legends

February 6, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

LEGENDS, the six-issue series printed in 1987 from DC Comics, was the essential sequel to the world-changing CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. It was meant to be a reintroduction to the DC Universe as well as a stand alone series that might be a primer to the characters and groups DC was publishing at the time. Read More

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

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
