It has come to our attention that noted comics writer Peter David has suffered a stroke, the full extent of which is still being ascertained, though he was able to post the news on his blog himself. (Addition 31/12/12 - Kathleen David has updated the post with more details)

Regardless of any past events, on a personal level we naturally send Mr David our sincere best wishes and hope that he makes a full and speedy recovery.

Barry is lauded as the first modern action hero in comics.

His arch villain, Fang Gow, was yet another Fu Manchu-styled stereotype. The plots and side characters could have easily been lifted from the pages of Sax Rohmer's Fu Manchu.

Atomic Comics reprinted 12 of their adventures with new art by Leo O'Mealia. With World War II over negative Chinese stereotypes were deemed usable again. See his reprinted adventures from Atomic Comics #1 below.

Who is he? What is he? )Read more about Barry and Gow here. Plus to random pages from the original run. Leo O'Mealia's art is a bog improvement in my opinion.

It's cold and lonely here in Minnesota, so I hope you'll enjoy this!

"World's Finest" was kind of an odd title in the Silver Age. Although it starred both Batman and Superman, it was much more in the Superman "camp", using his artists, editors and writers. This meant that many of the stories tended to use characters and themes that had appeared in the Superman titles, and were behind the times when it came to the Batman side of things. In this case, the story riffs on a story in Superman #181, and adds some Batman.



Five of seventeen pages of what's a fairly unusual story for the Silver Age, plus some extras.

My one weakness! )

Happy New Year,

And no, I don't mean this, because that's a rather specialised and personal form of "Awwww!"

So instead I offer this, which "Yes", IS another BTAS story, and from the same issue as the Mr Freeze story.... but I make NO apologies for that. (It's also a three page story, which leaves me ONE page to tell the story, so bear with me)

It's also appropriate (for me) that it has as it's title an old Scottish folk song associated with this night of all nights.

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot.... )
