Thirty years of a single constant, with little visible change in the outward appearance. That’s an impressive feat, one that is easier when the Read More

Major Direct Currents

“Surviving in New York Requires like 2 jobs and a little fraud on the side (sic)” ~ from the ‘I’m Still So NYC’ Facebook group, via John Ostrander. As an armchair historian and a comic book fan, I’ve always been fascinated by the intricacies of the earliest days of the comic book form, as well Read More

Cryptid Cinema: A Quickie Review

Scary things, creatures, critters, creepy-crawlies and monsters of all walks frequently invade the studios of Pint O’ Comics, partly because we enjoy them, but also because the people we are entertained by are just as fascinated by the freakish fiends as we are. It’s a cyclical fandom, as the fondly recalled creations are shared with Read More

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.

Sir Jon Reviews: Forbidden Gallery #2

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.

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

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
