What Do You Do When No One Is Watching?

There is a fun little website called Proust that helps you build your own autobiography by asking interesting questions and letting you answer, add pictures and share with friends. I thought it would be a fun thing to take some of those questions and answer them with you here from time to time. This is the...

Silent Shadow of the Bat

How about some cool comic related video? These three come to us by way of a pointer from the very talented Lexington, KY based comic creator and writer RD Hall. Here’s how the original creator of this video series explains the creation… Parts one and two are halves of a 12 minute short depicting...

Into The Wild

I woke up this morning thinking about a film I’ve seen several times. The fact that I watched it twice in just the past week and find it moving up my top 10 favoriate films list may explain why it’s so central to my thinking right now. This very interesting film is Into the Wild. Theatrical...

1,000 Essential Comics with Charlie … Round 2

Some time back I told you about a book that’s been sitting on my library shelf just wasting away. I would occasionally spot the spine and it was just begging to be read. It is Tony Isabella’s much celebrated 1,000 Comic Books You Must Read and, with the permission of the author, I’m back for round two of my...

Doctor Who: Some Lingering Questions about Season Six

  Spoilers Sweetie… 1. Why do they have to be so darn scary? I asked this question on Facebook after starting this season. This is of course a rhetorical question and more a reflection on the wonderful writing and creative direction of Stephen Moffat than an actual complaint. Although I am...

C2E2 with Ginny and Charlie

Are you feeling tired? Lethargic? A creeping feeling of loss and dawning realization that your day to day life is dull and colorless? Congratulations, you probably just got back from a con weekend. Pandora Promotions and Comic Related just got back from a weekend at the midwest’s largest comic...

Guilty Pleasure #326… Convoy!

This week on the show, Ginny and I plan to have a discussion of fun obsessions.  Today, I’d like to share a post about that particular topic’s ugly cousin, guilty pleasures.  For me, I have to admit there are a lot in my life.  I’m often corny and a bit sentimental.  I’m okay with...

Sexy Superhero Costumes

Those of you that know me are probably not surprised to know that I have always been drawn to the sexy women of comics. But this admiration does not come easily at times, especially as it is clear from the way many of these women are drawn and are written that they are there to be escapist fantasy almost...

Gem City Comic Con

  Charlie and I had a great weekend at Gem City Comic Con with Aloysius Fox. Thanks again to Calamity Dawn and her lovely family for putting us up for the weekend and extra big thanks to John and Kim Wilson for running the Comic Related table all weekend. We couldn’t do it without all of you....

End of the Century

I’ve spent a lot of my life around education in one form or another. Sexy topic, right? But wait, I’m headed somewhere interesting. Whether it be the grade school years or college or my eventual career in higher education, for me life has almost always been around or near students and spring...

A Zombie Top 5

On this week’s episode, Ginny Tonic and I have a solid little discussion focused on zombies, zombie culture, zombie theory and zombie fandom. I’m not going to spoil that chat here, but I will say that I have a “guilty pleasure” level connection to these fine, feral, femur filleting,...

Collecting Comics

How did I start collecting comics?  Here’s some of my earliest memories of comic books and pictured within this post is a scan of the ONE BOOK that quite literally shaped a large period of my life and kicked off a hobby I still enjoy today. For those who don’t know, I grew up in a restaurant...

Top 5 Missing Television Series

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying John Wilson’s Big Damned Heroes article series on the long gone television show Firefly (via the Pandoracon site). It’s taken me back and gotten me rewatching the series when time allows. Along those same lines, an article coming out of SXSW shared a few...
