Over on the site’s FaceBook page, I posted a Comic Book Cover Cavalcade of Holiday themed back issues in a photo gallery. Check it out here: Four Color Holiday Celebration. I post graphic heavy content on FaceBook to save space for blog-specific items. Anyhow, head over to the gallery, and check it out. There are a few magazine covers too, due to extra christmasy content.
Happy holidays! 🕎☃🎁🎄🎉🖖🎅👹
Once upon a time, this was Star-Lord. In 1976, Star-Lord made his first appearance in the pages of Marvel-Preview Presents magazine. Different times, different kinds of heroes, same characters. While the designs have evolved since these days, the stories, well… have pretty much been told over and over. I dig the technique on the background of this classic cover.
Keeping this short and sweet(ish).
- Not a fan of the redesign.
- The story is very retconned, but interesting.
- I’m all for weird twists, so I am going to wait for the rest of the story.
Batman and Captain America have been my two favorite solo heroes since I was a child. I’ve seen crazy stories come and go. If you don’t like this then wait for a few months, it will be totally different, just like every other change that Steve has gone though.
A few years ago I colored this piece by the incomparable John Byrne. Mr. Byrne was my gateway into the X-Men back in the late 70’s. I had comics before I began collecting the X-Men, but I didn’t know who was editing, writing, inking or drawing the issues. I took notice of his style and became a lifelong fan of his style and writing.
Prepare to be A-Mazed! Sorry… I couldn’t help myself 😉
We all remember this… Just going to plop this down for everybody to think about, but I think we have already seen the “new” planet where Thor and Hulk are going.
The Kree Monolith was a gateway to a planet. Which planet? Hmmm… Perhaps Kree? More than likely. We’ve had a few Kree connections in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”. Ragnarok is, traditionally, a tale of the end of the world, in which (Thousand plus year old Spoiler) Thor dies.
I am pretty positive that this won’t be a “Planet Hulk”, but it should be a buddy flick, full of fun, laughs and incredible battles. Oh, also, I don’t think that they will actually kill off the Son of Odin but there will probably be a huge change in his world.
I went to my local comic book shop for Batman Day and found out that the shop was sold to a new owner AND that he didn’t bother to opt in for the celebration of Batman’s anniversary. That’s OK, I want the new owner to succeed. I picked up these two fun books for a buck each, a favorite hobby of mine, and my wife found a Gamorean Guard Funko Pop that she’s wanted. I dig finding books from my childhood. I ended up hitting yard-sales and then spending the rest of Saturday watching Batman movies and cartoons. Oh, I found a $130+ free standing punching bag for $4.00… not too shabby. At least I could alway train to BE Batman, I guess 😉
