Jack Kirby’s Dingbat Love

Unpublished ‘70s Stories by the King of Comics! Review by KC Carlson Somehow this amazing book from TwoMorrows managed to literally slip through the cracks between what’s laughably known as my desk and a wall — until I was reminded that I hadn’t read or reviewed it yet. After finding it, I was ashamed that I had misplaced this incredible (and fun!) look at Kirby’s odds and ends from DC Comics that hadn’t been collected yet. I appreciated seeing a […]

American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s

Review by KC Carlson I’m a huge fan of this series. Published by TwoMorrows, the American Comic Book Chronicles is an extremely detailed year-by-year — and then a further month-by month — examination of pretty much everything of note that happened during that time, both inside the comic books and at the offices of the major publishers, as well as with many of their top freelance artists and writers. American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s, written by Jason Sacks and […]

Jack Kirby Collector #75 Presents: Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said!

The Complex Genesis of the Marvel Universe, in Its Creators’ Own Words Review by KC Carlson John Morrow has to be one of the most prominent (if not THE) Jack Kirby scholars on the planet. His Jack Kirby Collector magazine has been published regularly and faithfully since 1994. The earliest issues were published in limited quantities in B&W and are now almost impossible to find. (Good thing John later reprinted them as paperback collections.) These early issues were also fairly […]

The Beatles in Comics!

Review by KC Carlson People tend to forget that the Beatles (as a group) were only together for 10 years and only recorded together for eight. But once they got started, they composed and recorded more than 200 songs, and at least 12 albums, throughout the 1960s. (The album count is a little dicey, since many of their albums in England differed from their albums in America in both content and number of songs.) John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, […]

Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 1

Review by KC Carlson It’s been a while since I’ve watched (and reviewed) any vintage Popeye cartoons. But Warner just sent me the first new Popeye set in a long while. Plus, it’s the first restored Popeye on Blu-ray, which is a big deal! Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 1 contains 14 recently restored color theatrical shorts — and as far as I can tell these are the original, unedited, versions of the cartoons. I distinctly remember watching these […]
