Posting on Sundays seems to become a habit, I´m just glad I managed to finish a HORST story this week even if the follow - up takes longer than expected. Last time I posted a few links and there are still a few left that I haven´t gotten to post. So here´s the second part :
THE DC CORNER
Jeffrey Renaud poses ten questions to Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray about " No Way Back ", the 136 - page hardcover featuring art by Tony DeZuniga, who co - created Jonah Hex in 1972 with writer John Albano. The writing duo also share their thoughts on the " Jonah Hex " ongoing series, the forthcoming movie and the DC Universe Animated Original Movi " Batman : Under the Red Hood " scheduled for July, which will also feature a Hex animated short.
I have to say I´m not up to date on BATMAN books, I jumped ship on BATMAN AND ROBIN the moment Frank Quitely was off the picture, BATMAN R.I.P. didn´t manage to catch my attention as well as BATTLE FOR THE COWL and THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE sounds pretty boring to me. As there is no new BATMAN ADVENTURES title that has halfway decent art the only BATMAN book I´m reading now is the german version that has the new story of Dick Grayson as the new Batman.
Nevertheless as well as over at Marvel some of DC´s titles are nearing the big numbers so it seems there is something special planned for Batman issue 700. So far I haven´t read the article because I will probably read the german version next year but judging from the pictures I would surmise that there could be spoilers involved.
We´re staying at the batcave with Ben Morse over at THE COOL KID´S TABLE who takes a really good look at the history of the different incarnations of Robin.
Here are some older links that I haven´t gotten around to post. Old news to most readers but maybe there´s someone out there who hasn´t read them yet :
And last but not least, something of a newer date over at GRUMPY OLD FAN where Tom Bondurant takes a look at the Man of Tomorrow´s role in the DC universe
THE STONE AGE CORNER
Speaking about iconic characters Steve Sunu interviews Scott Beatty about DYNAMITE´s new LAST PHANTOM series. I tried to get into the PHANTOM new books because I have alway been a fan of the character, but after reading a rather unimpressive trade it somehow got on the backburner. But I have to say, those covers by Alex Ross alone are making me wonder what´s it all about.
And since we´re on this subject I would also like to plug a new blog about the PHANTOM that goes by the name of THE GHOST WHO BLOGS. It started this year and I don´t remember where I saw the link first. In any case it´s a cool blog and if you´re interested in the works of Lee Falk or the Phantom in general you should check it out.
THE SPACE AGE CORNER
Here are some articles on the newest trends in comics : webcomics, digital comics and the i - pad.
Not really space agey but since I posted the ten cool webcomics list here´s a list about the 30 most overlooked comics. I recommend to take a look at it as you may find some jewels in it as well as some of your favorite reads.
THE " THIS IS FOR LA RAZA " CORNER
As a guy from Spain, who lives in Germany and writes about comics from America I can understand which role minority superheroes play in the lives of some fans. The next links all deal with this subject.
THE WOMEN´S CORNER
As Marvel´s trying ( but not really succeding ) to get more attention to female comic artists here are some reads on that subject. Now while I don´t say you should read comics only because they are made by women I am an advocate of seeking out those comics as they often fail to get attention. And mostly it´s not because of a lack of quality.
THE ARTISTS CORNER
My favorite part : the comic creators interviews.
THE ODDS AND ENDS CORNER
The usual assortment of various articles that didn´t fit into the other categories.
And with that it´s once again time to wrap it up as I´m already 20 minutes over my time limit. I now have to immerse myself in water or else I loose all my strength.
