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

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

State of the Industry – March 2016

2016 continues to show that successful comic book movies do not necessarily spark any interest in the comic books they are derived from, as the third month of the year continued a downward trend in sales figures. Only three titles rose above that all-so-important 100k mark in March, with Marvel maintaining dominance. Of the top Read More

State of the Industry – February 2016

February sales in the comic book market are traditionally slow, with 2016 continuing that (trend) as numbers dipped to lows not seen in nearly a year. Only three titles topped 100k for the month, though a fourth came so close it may as well be considered an even 100 thousand. Marvel dominated the top ten Read More

Those that are About to Die – An Examination of the Suicide Squad, Part One

Suicide Squad

A lengthy re-read and discourse on the DC comic book series, Suicide Squad and all subseries. By late 1986, after the final issues of the Legends mini-series had hit the shelves, my interest in the newly reformatted DC Universe was at an all-time high. Amazing amounts of awesome new series were being released following the Read More

Charlton – The Movie

As many at this page are aware, I’m an avowed fan of Charlton Comics, the long-defunct company from Connecticut considered by most to be an also-ran or bottom tier publisher. I wrote a brief interest piece in December (read it HERE) that stirred up some interest and drove me to discover something I was then Read More

State of the Industry – January 2016

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

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
