Weekend Reading: Shako, Star Trek, James O’Barr & Curt Swan




Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Movies, Independent

ShakoHi Everybody and happy holidays from all of us here at Comix 411! Here's a few things to sample if you're lucky enough to have some time off from work/school/play.

I really want a copy of Pat Mills and John Wagner’s Shako, The Only Bear On The CIA Death List. “Shako is a true classic from the early days of 2000AD when blood-thirsty ultra-violence was a hallmark of an anarchic new comic.”

Want to know what James O’Barr (The Crow) has been doing lately? He worked on Sundown, a Western horror tale now told in motion comics form.

Daniel Best looks at the new Star Trek teaser poster.

Are you looking for an inexpensive yet worthy graphics tablet? There are two options at Monoprice and Ray Frenden gives ‘em a thumbs up.

Paul O’Connor at Longbox Graveyard gets himself interviewed at The Long Shot.

And speaking of Longbox Graveyard, here’s Paul’s Holiday Gift Guide, which is perfect if you get any money for the holidays.

Veteran comic book artist (and creator of one of my favorite back-up series of all time: U.S.S. Stevens) Sam Glanzman recently celebrated his birthday. Here’s a nice interview with Mr. G.

Glanzman’s graphic novel, Red Range, with writher Timothy Truman is still available.

Note to freelancers: here’s what an author really makes.

And finally, I love looking at this Boy Commandos story illustrated by... Curt Swan!

Now go forth and use your internets responsibly!
