I’ve been writing about my favourite comics every year for as long as I can remember, I’ve narrowed it down to five picks each year, it’s interesting how three of the five titles on this list were here on last year’s list – My Favourite Comics of 2014, and two of them are brand new… Continue reading My favourite comics of 2015
On Sunday, October 18th at the Forest City Comicon, I was honoured to present a posthumous TM Maple award to Robert Charpentier during the 2015 Joe Shuster Awards. This is my speech.
I like putting together a few year in review lists that remind me what I enjoyed in a year. Comics are a big passion of mine, big enough that I take the kids to two or three conventions every year, and always make plans to go to one of the bigger ones (like C2E2, WizardWorld… Continue reading My Favourite Comics of 2014
This is my first new comic book review since August 31, 2011 when I reviewed Justice League #1, the first comic of the “New 52”. This one shouldn’t come as a surprise though, as Grant Morrison owned a full 10% of my “50 Greatest Comic Runs“. Grant Morrison and Ivan Reis bring us the first iinstalment… Continue reading Multiversity Makes Me Happy
I can’t tell you much about what my life was like as a 12 year old. I have snippets of things from back then, a fun vacation to Niagara Falls, some trips to Ipperwash and Grand Bend, some great birthdays, lots of terrific times at my grandparents farm…but I can vividly tell you exactly what… Continue reading Comics that Scared Me – Swamp Thing #25

The rules were simple, they had to be comics I was incredibly excited when they came out. I had to have bought them off… Continue reading Top 50 Comic Runs 10 – 6
My first three entries in this series tell a much different story. From here on in there are no easy choices, and honestly other than the top five…any of these from 20-5 are pretty much interchangeable depending on my mood. Previous entries in the Top 50 Comic Runs are: Top 50 Comic Runs 50-41 Top 40 50… Continue reading Top 50 Comic Runs 20-11
Way back in September of 2009, I thought I’d put out a list of the top 40 comic book runs. This was the list of comics that I return to again and again. Something happened though…I kind of fell off the wagon a little bit. I have the entire list, all chunked out in three… Continue reading Top 50 Comic Book Runs 50-41
DC Comics announced nearly a year ago that they would be creating a series of stand alone graphic novels about the major heroes in the DCU, and appropriately enough they started it off with Superman Earth One. Written by J. Michael Straczynski and illustrated by Shane Davis with colours by Sandra Hope, Superman Earth One is… Continue reading Superman Earth One Review
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHRmDtBcDXI I had an opportunity to get my hands on an iPad today when Mark at work brought his in for some Info-Tech show and tell. Steve Jobs has declared it a “Magical Device”. Arthur C Clarke once said “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Well in that respect, the iPad is magic.… Continue reading A killer app for comics?
