Legends from Darkwood pt 4: The Unicorn's Revenge

Last part of the Legends from Darkwood post series, I ended with a teaser that next time, I'd show the Unicorn's side of this, and that's where we'll begin, with the last post of the series.

Father..er.. Bane knows best

after [personal profile] 3goodtimes's Scandal and Bane adorableness, [personal profile] falseaesop wanted to see Bane's pre-date interview of Liana.

The CosmicBookNews has the preview for Thor #608. The fight against Osborn and the forces of H.A.M.M.E.R. at the gates of Asgard isn't the only fight in town.

The better part of valor. )

Made In Mexico: Kaliman

Well, here's one of those projects I've been thinking of doing for quite a while now.

As the majority of everyone who reads this community knows, I'm Mexican. And Mexico has had a LOT of good... and bad... and obvious ripoff... comics over the past 75 years (or more).

And I want to show many of them here. I still have to dig up many of my old comics from storage... most of my comics were Mexican Spanish reprints by Editorial Vid, but I still managed to get some rare and uncommon comics from the late 90's / early 00s (before I stopped buying comics altogether in 2002-2003). Sadly, my collection does not include most of the truly landmark comics that were from before my time, but I hope to find some issues of those books in the future so I can post about them. :)

That said, welcome to...

I'm going to talk a bit about Kaliman: El Hombre Increíble. It began as a radio drama which first aired on September 16, 1963 and continues to be broadcast to this day. It became so popular that the creators decided to expand upon it and create a WEEKLY comic book that was printed every week for 26 years.

But who is Kaliman? He is a man who has chosen to spend his time fighting evil and injustice in the world. Adoptive heir to a Hindu king, he was abducted and abandoned in the wilderness by a jealous relative who wanted to take the throne for himself. He spent 21 years living on his own, through the wilderness, a Llama monastery, Mongolia, a pirate ship, and Africa - where he finally decides to go back and reclaim what is rightfully his.

When he returns, the relative that abducted him kills his adoptive mother - but then HE is killed by a cobra. Kaliman then gives away all his riches to his fellow countrymen, and turns the castle into a temple of sorts. He returns to the Llama monastery and spends four years learning the secrets of mind control over other people and his own body.

Some of his powers include telepathy, telekinesis, incredible body flexibility (contortion), "actus mortis" (fake death) and many others. While he prefers to try and reason with evil, he will not hesitate to lay the smackdown on anyone who won't listen to reason.

He also has a sidekick, Solín, a young boy who is descended from Egyptian Pharaohs.

And now, the obligatory scan: Any similarity to any existing character is pure coincidence, really. )

Must be equal to the task - Avengers #63

With the possible casting of Chris Evans as Captain America and as Siege event heads to a close, let us reflect on the gravitas that will be required of the Sentinel of Liberty and the last time Asgard took arms against U.S. forces in Avengers #63 (or #478, depending on what you follow).

Stand. Your. Ground. )

Fushigi Yuugi--Why Miaka has issues

While looking to see if maybe I had some of the old Jademan comics, I ran across the first issue of Animerica Extra. Back in 1998, Viz Comics published a magazine called Animerica that had anime and manga news, as well as some actual translated manga. It was successful enough to spin off an all-manga monthly.



And hey, let's take a look at the first chapter of Fushigi Yuugi, by Yu Watase. We'll focus on the part that's different from the first episode of the anime version, Miaka's relationship with her mother. 13 pages of 39, safe for work, but may be triggery for domestic abuse.

I learned it from watching you, okay? I learned it from watching you! )

Your thoughts, comments?
