I've been through a LOT of writers in my time, in the comic book consumer sense of course. Some have been great, some have been pretty awful, some have been workmanlike, and some have transcended the genre.

Neil Gaiman was a terribly tempting choice, as were Alan Moore and Grant Morrison (particularly early in their career), who were genuinely groundbreaking in the US comic format, and Gaiman at least still earns an automatic (if trial) pull on any new title he writes, and Mark Gruenwald deserves honorary mention for producing many excellent stories playing in the Marvel toybox, but there's another who IMHO always produces quality work. If he's writing the "classic" characters he treats them with respect but not reverence, and usually has a new twist on them, and if he's writing his own characters they may seem somewhat familiar, but there's something else going on to surprise us.

I mean, of course...

Hi folks!

When Superman the Animated Series and Batman the Animated Series were on, they had tie-in comics, the Adventures line. We've seen scans from those every so often. But there was a third title, Adventures in the DCUniverse that covered everyone else in the DCU in kid-friendly stories.



This version draws most closely on the Jerry Ordway Power of Shazam continuity. 7 pages of 22.

Say the word! Feel the power! )

Now we wait for the newest Shazam-related series to find a hole in the schedule.

Your thoughts and comments?
SKJAM!

with the dawn of the upcoming Spider-man movie reboot not so far away, and the Spidermen meeting, it's nice to look back and examine the first Spider Man.No, it's not Peter Parker, he's not even from Marvel Comics.

IO9.com has pages that take us back to yesteryear. A comic book adventure where the young handsome good guy fights the creepy villain with the spider-gimmick.

And a propensity to do dirty, dirty things with web fluid.

Some pages behind the cut....

SHAZA- uck! )
