Long before Cheryl and Jason Blossom were the victim and victimizer within a taboo relationship in Afterlife with Archie, or respectively mentally disturbed and dead in the Riverdale TV series, they were more lighthearted elitist troublemakers in the old Archie Comics continuity. That doesn't mean what they got up to wasn't envelope-pushing in its own way for the relatively family-friendly venue. Especially in this, their first appearance.

Dark Horse: "As the Year of Groo bumbles on, the world’s stupidest barbarian and his dog wander into those two sinister witches, Arba and Dakarba . . . who have a scheme to conjure up a giant duplicate of Groo! That means more Groo for your buck!"

Josie is best known today as leader of the Pussycats. However, for her first six years of existence, she wasn't a rock star but a sort of Everygirl counterpart to Archie (although they wouldn't appear in the same universe until some time in the Pussycats era). And before Alexander Cabot III became her band's manager, he was Josie's friend and sometimes-boyfriend. However, just as Melody was always a "dumb blonde" (prior to the 2016 reboot attempt, anyway), Alex was always a haughty and often flaky rich guy, as we see in this classic story.

'“Curse Words” in particular was born from the idea that I wanted to do something with no restrictions on either the writing or art side, to best take advantage of Ryan’s unique storytelling abilities. Magic fit the bill in a big way, and from my initial pitch to Ryan (“So, I have this idea about a wizard who’s kind of a dick…”) the book came to be.' - Charles Soule

I just went through a new Elizabeth Wein book in 24 hours flat. *glows* The Pearl Thief is set in 1938 and features a fifteen-year-old, bisexual-as-fuck Julie Beaufort-Stuart.

Its target, Brynjar of the Paznina, was out hunting.

The Roto let fly.

Their projectile flew through the air.

Brynjar was returning, successful. )

'Based on feedback they have apparently found that NEW VISIONS goes over big with people who are not "conventional comic readers". I interpret that to mean those people who have spent WAY too many years reading comics, and have built all kinds of rules for what they should be. The people who complain that they "don't like photos with word bubbles in them" but who have no problem with the photorealistic painted books.' - John Byrne

"While writing Green Lantern I received a letter from a fan asking about a mixup in DC continuity. In my reply I said, “One day we (meaning the DC editorial we) will probably straighten up what is in the DC Universe ... and what is outside.” At this point in its history DC Comics had Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Three, Earth-B, etc. There were super-heroes on each Earth and though old-time readers had no problem understanding DC continuity, it proved off-putting to new readers who suddenly discovered there was not one but three Supermans, Wonder Womans, Batmans, etc."

CAPTAIN AMERICA #377 is part of the "Streets of Poison" story. Cap gets high on meth and has to give up the Super Soldier Serum to sober up. Yes, there's more to it than that.

The most important thing about this fascinating and diverse mythology isn't whether or not it's 'real', it's what it says about modern culture. I've been researching this title since I was a child, nervously turning over the pages of 'real life UFO' books. -- Paul Cornell

 As you may may have seen, a number of my EC posts over the last couple of years have been in black and white. I've been using pages from Fantagraphic's "EC Comics Library" which are in effect artist-based collections in black and white. You can view them on Comixology here.

Conversely, Dark Horse has been putting out their own series of EC reprints. These versions are digitally recolored and are published in chronological order. There are some here.

I will probably continue to use Fantagraphics' versions for the time being just because I already have them in my collection but I was wondering which versions you would prefer to see if I was able to pick from both.

[personal profile] riddler13 posting in [community profile] scans_daily
"Each month of this yearlong series, Groo and his faithful pooch, Rufferto, encounter a different acquaintance--or enemy--with the usual dire consequences! In #1, Groo crosses paths with Captain Ahax, the seaman with the world record for most ships sunk by the all-time stupidest character in comics! Brought to you by the award-winning team of Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier!"

The plot revolves around a little girl, Kayli, who is looking for her father - a member of the Groo cast (fortunately for her, it's not him). She stumbles upon Groo and they travel along while he wreaks havoc unintentionally.

Today is Stephen King's 70th birthday. To celebrate I figured I would post a few pages from Marvel's adaptation of The Stand showcasing Randall Flagg, who I think is one of King's greatest villains.

The Yellow "M" (1953-54)

[personal profile] riddler13 posting in [community profile] scans_daily
"Blake and Mortimer" is one of the most well-known Belgian comics series, created by Edgar P. Jacobs (1904-1987). The title is a bit of a misnomer due to phonetic issues - the titular character is, in fact, Philip Mortimer, a British scientist. He is aided by his "heterosexual life partner" (a common feature in Belgian comics at the time, and the inspiration for many a slash fanfic) capt. Francis Blake of the MI5. The book mixes detective and spy elements with fantastic concepts such as UFOs, time travel and Atlantis.

I was going to post my first contact with their books, "The Necklace Affair", but thought it best to start with the most famous story of all, "The Yellow 'M'" - the one with the most iconic cover of the series, copied by various comic book artists.



Verbosity ensues )

"Blake and Mortimer" were recently (wow, actually, about a decade ago or so) translated by Cinebook Ltd., a British company who specializes in Belgian and French comics, which gives an interesting twist to a comic set in Britain with two protagonists from Albion.

And Jason 1.0

Saw some original art from this issue online and realisd I'd always meant to share the issue. It's a minor story in many ways, Doug Moench writing the first of a sort of two part story which isn't major or "important", but to share Don Newton pencils with Alfredo Alcala inks and Adrienne Roy colours, is always a pleasure.
