Weekend Reading: Jack Kirby, Two-Gun Kid, Jack Davis and Monty Python
Here are my picks for Oscar night: Nobody named Oscar will actually win anything.
So let’s see what the internets are yapping about:
You can tell that something’s brewing when creators start to go a bit public with payment problems at publishers. Bleeding Cool reported on two this week.
Cartoonist Lew Stringer finds there’s a lot to like about the new one-shot The Clock Strikes, a noirish adventure set in the 1930s that revives an old comic book character.
Longbox Graveyard tackles the news. Sure, it’s news from blogger Paul O’Connor, but it’s all good news.
Novelist and comic book writer Victor Gischler (The Deputy) hopes you’ll pick up his latest: the X-Men: FF hardcover.
Tom McLean at Bags And Boards has broken his 26-year comic-buying habit for reasons that will be all-too-familiar to a lot of folks. I just hope he keeps blogging!
Sam Tweedle talks with Garth Ennis about The Boys and The Shadow.
Pappy’s got a 1964 Beverly Hillbillies joke book, illustrated by MAD Magazine’s Jack Davis. Great stuff!
You don’t usually find the word erotic associated with Jack Kirby’s work, but Jason Michelitch at Comics Alliance makes that happen.
Do you remember Marvel’s Two-Gun Kid? Paul Bishop at Bish’s Beat does, with a bunch of great covers. Bonus: a couple of nice John Severin covers.
And, because I will always link to something about Monty Python: Eric Idle has written a new musical, What About Dick? The cast: Russell Brand, Tracey Ullman, Billy Connolly, Sophie Winkleman, Eddie Izzard and Tim Curry.
Now, use your internets responsibly!
