The end of this long Jonah Hex trail is in sight. Last batch. . .Let's get it done!
JONAH HEX (Vol. 2 DC)
Not a very good issue at all. A tale of schemes and counterschemes ending up in murder and Hex hired to get to the bottom of it. One of the top 5 worst issues in the run, and the bad art by Giordano doesn't help. I've never been a huge fan...

More Jonah Hex. . .Let's do this!

I actually read, updated and reviewed this seventy issue run of Jonah Hex (Vol 2) back in December, but over the weekend someone asked me about the blog post because they couldn't find it. I realized then that I didn't do one!
So let's fix that little oversight now with a HEAPIN' helping of DC's Weird Western bounty hunter!

Ninja Turtles? Cowabunga, dude! Wait. . .why is Raphael cursing and using an Uzi?
Okay. . .first off, Image wisely changed the title on this mini so it wouldn't look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle book. The title "Bodycount" is a pretty damn good one word description of the whole thing, as this HAS to be the bloodiest,...

Two shots! Longer than a one shot, shorter than a mini! Do they even make these any more?
Let's do this!
HELLBOY: THE ISLAND (Dark Horse)
Hellboy is washed up on a mysterious, haunted island where he meets a Greek Goddess and gets beaten down by a huge monster. But first, he drinks rum and sings sea chanties about pretty young cabin boys with...

Space: Above and Beyond was a short-lived (one season) Fox T.V. show in the 90's that focused on a squadron of U.S. Marine Corps space fighter pilots during a war with insect-like alien invaders known as "Chigs". It was pretty gritty and realistic and still holds up fairly well if you can ignore the 90's-Tastic CGI effects. As a former Marine myself, I was a big fan...

To me, Solomon Kane is one of the most unique characters out there. . .not nearly as well known as other R.E. Howard creations like Red Sonja, King Kull, or Conan. . .but still a great character. For those who are not familiar, Kane is basically a combination of The Punisher and Blade The Vampire Hunter, created long before either of those characters and set in the...
Cataloged over a thousand comics from my collection! And I'm not even half way done! That's about 4 long boxes and I have 4 more to go and that's not accounting for maybe the 10 or more I have in storage.
I only wish they were worth as much as comic book realm says they are. I'd be lucky to get a fraction for them. I think the easy part will be entering them on...
Welcome back to the series that's like that one guy at work who just does what he has to do and nothing else. He knows he's never going to get a great review from management, but he doesn't care as long as he just gets paid.
THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD (DC)
In a strange turn of events, Batman and Joker team up to find the truth after Penguin is...
Welcome back to the 80's! Smell that cheap paper, boy! SMELL IT!
That's right. We didn't need fancy paper in my day. And stories that made sense? Didn't need those either. You kids don't even know how good you got it now. I had to buy MY comics from the grocery store. One story in every issue. None of that continuity crap you kids talk about. Didn't need...
