    Also, the Hulk battles Santa Claus in a fight for the ages, a look back at the X-Tinction Agenda from 2015, and a fan letter in Black Lightning #9 from none other than Mike W. Barr.

    You can find it all right here! https://edgosney.com/2018/12/06/this-week-black-lightning-transformers-and-even-little-lulu/

  • I just started dipping my toes into Western books, finally adding two 50's era books into my collection, so thanks for the info on Shadow Roads and the Sixth Gun. I am interested to see the modern day take on Western books now.

  • I was never a fan of The Hulk but may just have to find myself that issue. Don't know how that slipped past my radar. It looks like a fun read.

    So did Marvel redo X-Tinction Agenda? I don't keep up with modern Marvel anymore. Shame they've run out of ideas and keep rehashing old stories. The storyline from the 90s was a classic.

  • In Episode 169, Cool Comics takes a look at several Christmas themed issues, including the newest holiday special from the Walmart collaboration, Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol, and Disney. We also go back to early Conan in anticipation of new Marvel Conan stories next month, the diabolical Batman Who Laughs, and a couple digital delights.

  • I bought three of those Wal-Mart holiday specials as stocking stuffers for my youngest nieces. I think they make great (small) Christmas gifts. They won't break the bank and they're a pretty nice introduction to comics, having a variety of pretty good stories and a decent range of characters under one cover.

  • Atom, I bought each of my three kids both the Holiday Walmart special and the one that came out at Halloween. Using them as stocking stuffers is a great idea!

  • It ain't easy confessing you've never seen Fight Club, so I'll come out and admit I've never seen the whole thing either. Just bits here and there. I guess we're members of the "No Fight Club".

  • Ain't THAT the truth! As I dig through my daughter's pretty respectable collection (10 Longboxes) for Marvel comics I really see that there's a lot of stuff out there I haven't even thought of reading yet. . .

  • Episode 174: Marvel's 80th Anniversary sees the return of Marvel Comics Presents, Dirk Manning is a master storyteller, Maxwell's Demons might make you shed a tear, and Casper is the friendliest ghost you know! All this plus Lois Lane is up to her usual shenanigans, Seventies style.

  • Episode 175: The Guardians of the Galaxy are back but different, Cheryl and Jason Blossom are vying for the title of Anti-Christ, we bring Disney's Little Mermaid to you courtesy of FCBD, the Coyote is still after the Road Runner, and Green Lantern claims that he's guilty of "the most dreadful crime in the universe!"

  • Episode #175 huh? Nice milestone there!
    About the portion concerning reading habits, I am right with you there. Reading is reading, whether it is a literary classic or a comic book. Some comic writers are literary greats as it is. And, with comic books, you get the best of both worlds. Beautiful, provoking artwork working in conjunction with the story that you are reading. Personally, I think that avid comic book readers are more intelligent, have a better imagination, and a bigger vocabulary.
    Machete was telling me about that Blossoms book last week. I may have to check it out. I didn't realize it was a tv series as well.

  • Spector, great assessment of comic book readers. To clarify, there is not a Blossoms 666 TV show, but I was just mentioning that some of the characters from the Riverdale show who are dead are present in the Blossoms 666 comic. Sorry for any confusion...and maybe it will be a show someday.

  • Oh my mistake entirely. I have caught a few episodes of Riverdale on Netflix, and it is pretty decent. I got one of the FCBD issues last year as well. I still prefer the old school Archie and the Gang, but still glad they put a modern take on things too.

  • Both you and MacheteF7 stirred my interest in that Blossoms 666 book, and picked up the last remaining cover C variant at the LCS today. In addition to that, I found a Vampironica #1 in the dollar bins. So, now 2 current Archie books added to my collection!

  • Nice! I really have fun with the modern Archie horror stuff. In April they are crossing Jughead the Hunger (werewolf) with Vampironica!

  • Posted: February 2, 2019 6:37:45 pm
  • Now that does sound interesting. I read both the Blossoms and the Vampironica book, and thoroughly enjoyed them both.
    Now, they did have a Jughead the Hunger that was a Werewolf by Night #32 homage that I have been wanting. If I remember correctly, there was some sort of problem with the printing, and all copies that were produced came out in pretty bad condition. Occasionally I will do a search for it, but haven't found any decent copies of it.

  • I just have the regular covers for the entire series, but of course as a Moon Knight fan you need that one! Best wishes on finding a good one.

  • I had the Journey into Unknown worlds in my hands last week, but available spending funds vs the books I "needed" prevailed, and I was forced to put it back. It does look interesting enough, and I love these retro-eque-reboot books that Marvel is doing. Kind of takes you back in time. I may have to give it another look, if they still have it now knowing the writer for that Cherry Blossoms book is the same for this book. I did enjoy the Cherry book.

  • Episode 177: Cool Comics is Like a Box of Chocolates...that's right, you never know what you're going to get with CCIMC, and being that we're publishing on Valentine's Day, you just knew we'd have to go with a romantic theme. We're bringing you a mix this episode that varies from Valentine's Day red on the covers to hearts circling young lovers' heads to dashing spies to outright romance comics.

  • Picked up the new DD#1 last week and enjoyed it. Even happier that there was not a big wait from the end of the last volume.

    Now that battle is probably one that I bet nobody has thought of. I may have to put my thinking cap on before responding on your blog. I am fans of both.

    Nice touch tossing up some of the romance titles to go with the holiday. I peek at some of the golden/silver age titles for sale here and again, and wow, some are pretty pricey, especially in the higher conditions. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby both have done some work in the romance books.

  • Spector, I think the Daredevil - James Bond fight could be very interesting, if 007 has the right gadgets.

    And yes, high grade romance titles can get pricey. It never bothers me to get low grade comics, because then I get the joy of reading them, can put them in my blog, and have plenty left over for the new stuff coming out.

  • Well, I for one, have not read anything about Oblivion Song, so thank you for the review. Image has a number of really well written books that are available, and many that are current.
    Last month I scored a lot of Copperhead comic books for 99 cents. It had every issue except 2. I was able to find one of the missing books at the LCS, but have not picked up #5. (Mainly because I hate to pay $4 for the book and match that for shipping for one book, when I got the lot for such a great deal).
    So, I have read #1-4 and absolutely love it. A Sci-Fi Western, who would have thought? Anyways, there are a good bit of Image books around with some great stories (and terrific artwork) for all to enjoy...like Oblivion Song (and Copperhead too!)

  • I'll keep my eye out for Copperhead when I'm digging around in discount boxes! Thanks for the heads-up on that one, Spector.

    With all the offerings that come out every month in Previews, sometimes difficult decisions have to be made. In a perfect world, we'd all be able to get every issue that sounds interesting...but alas, most of us don't have the funds for it.

  • Hey you kept the Hulkverines and Infinity watch positive, I wiill give you that. You are braver than me in picking the first one up haha. That cover on the Infinity watch though. Comical yet provoking at the same time...I may end up picking that one up eventually. I picked up a Spawn Kills everyone too variant a week or so ago, that was an Infinity homage with the Violator. I wasn't collecting that book, but I couldn't pass that issue up.

  • Spector, sometimes I'm willing to give crazy a try, and sometimes the crazy works! There are others who may not like either of those comics, and that's okay, because we enjoy different things. Most people in different comic book groups have actually ended up pretty positive about both after they've read them, or have decided to give them a try.

    You couldn't have put that any better. Different strokes for sure. A lot of what I purchase I see through the investment lens. But...I make a bunch of pure fun and enjoyment buys that I probably get more out of regardless if they are literary gems or if they will ever be valuable.
    The last several purchases made, waiting to arrive, fall into that category. Replacement books to recapture my youth kind of buys. 1983 mini series Hawekeye, Cloak and Dagger, Magik and the Falcon. And last night the Atlas 70's book Grim Ghost #1.
    There are definitely books to appeal to everyone, and you captured that perfectly with your statement.

  • Congratulations, Ed! Not only did you write another great Cool Comics entry in your latest column (#181 - accept no substitutes) but you also officially cracked the All Time Top Ten List of Comics or Comic Related Issues or Articles numbered 181, arguably the most significant number in all of comic book history that is not number one! Sure you have your fifteens and your twenty-seven's and your 98's and your 300's, but those are all one offs pretty much. Look at this list that your article has joined!
    #1 - Incredible Hulk featuring the first full appearance of Wolverine no less!
    #2 - Batman featuring the first appearance of Poison Ivy.
    #3 - Avengers featuring the first appearance of Scott Lang, the second Ant Man!
    #4 - Daredevil featuring the ultimate battle between Bullseye and Elektra!
    #5 - Green Lantern in which Hal Jordan gives up the ring leading to John Stewart becoming Green Lantern the next issue.
    #6 - Cool Comics in My Collection featuring Doomsday Clocks, Samuree and Looney Tunes!
    #7 - Amazing Spider-Man featuring Peter visiting Uncle Ben's grave and a retelling of his origin story.
    #8 - A Soapbox from Stan Lee in which he talks about beating DC in a softball game and quotes Irving Forbush!

    So congratulations, Ed, you are in good company! I will leave it for other interested readers to figure out the final two comics to complete our Top Ten!!!
