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

The State of the Industry, August 2017

The market of comic books has always been volatile. One month may show a massive increase in sales across the board, another might show a huge drop. August sales were one of those drops, with a reported 20% fall from July. What is causing such a stunning fluctuation, so soon after great strides from DC’s 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. As such, when a new title with impressive cover art was solicited in June, I had to Read More

Sir Jon Reviews: Forbidden Gallery #2

© ACP Comics

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. As a fan of anthologies and all of the templates that Forbidden Gallery provides, the book is fully Read More

Sir Jon Reviews – Betty and Veronica #1-3

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

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 – Last Song #1

In the inaugural issue of LAST SONG, creator and writer of the title, Holly Interlandi explains in her afterward that she thinks “rock and roll is enough” when telling a tale about rock music stars in comic book form. She says that most people wait “for the punchline” of what else might be part of 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

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
