Morrison @ Marvel: Marvel Boy
About a year and a half ago, I embarked on a project to read (or in many cases re-read) everything I could cobble together written by Grant Morrison. I started with Zenith, and between reading other stuff, working, writing, and occasionally speaking to my wife and children, I finally made it to his Marvel-era work recently. Looking at the full overview of his career, the Marvel years seem more...

* At Comics Comics, Jog runs down the week’s most intriguing new releases. The only thing I see that I’m really looking forward to is the new issue of Criminal. * At Comics Worth Reading, Johanna does the math and discovers Rich Johnston may have made thousands of dollars off of last weekend’s accidental Amazon.com graphic novel blowout sale. Read the comments for Rich’s...
Daily Breakdowns 070 - Not So Hornet
Green Hornet #1 Writer - Kevin Smith Breakdowns - Phil Hester Finished Art - Jonathan Lau Publisher - Dynamite Entertainment. $3.99 USD Smith adapts his script from an unproduced Green Hornet screenplay, and based on this first issue, it’s not hard to see why the script wasn’t used for the upcoming Seth Rogen film. I’m not trying to be mean here; it’s not terrible. But...
Daily Breakdowns 069 - Ed Hannigan Covered
Ed Hannigan: Covered Publishers - Marvel Comics and Hero Initiative. $5.99 USD Ed Hannigan was a name and talent I knew as a kid of 12 or 13 reading Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man. His covers for the Cloak & Dagger/Silvermane issues were distinctive and eye-popping in the way he tilted perspective and used the logo as an element in the story being told on the cover, rather than...
Daily Breakdowns 068 - Wave Hello, Say Goodbye
First Wave #1 (of 6) Writer - Brian Azzarello Artist - Rags Morales Publisher - DC Comics. $3.99 USD I didn’t pay a lot of attention to news about DC doing some sort of new imprint, or at least establishing some new corner of the DCU, for the Spirit, Doc Savage and I presume other Golden Age pulp heroes they have rights to use. I saw Azzarello’s name and just didn’t think he...

Daily Breakdowns 067 - Swinging & Coming
So, we’ve moved to another home, but we’re still TWC, more or less. I’ve just been plugging away, focused a lot lately on the floppy end of comics, though there’s some other stuff in the works, and a very cool event planned for April. As far as this Tumblr, thing, it will take some getting used to. I don’t know how to encode links, or add images, but we’ll...

* Looks like Jog is taking his weekly rundown of the week’s interesting new comics to Comics Comics. Good match, as Jog has pretty much the best taste in the blogosphere and Comics Comics is a place where the best comics are frequently under discussion. * Also at Comics Comics, and I know I am late to the party on this, Tim Hodler weighs in with some observations on the new Art of Jaime...
Tumblr with Comics
…and here we are at the new (for now, anyway!) home of Comic Book Galaxy’s trouble with comics! Due to technical issues (short version: screw YOU, Blogger!), we found the need to relocate TWC, so this is where we’ll be until further notice. Please bookmark http://troublewithcomics.tumblr.com/ and thanks for your patience and continuing interest in Trouble with Comics! —...
