  • Mr. Garfield asks

    “Is that Cracky the Parrot or Cracky, Jr., Mike? Or am I mixing the Golden Magazine mascot up with some sort of Toucan Sam, Parrot Detective character?”

    Mr. Garfield is referring to the sidebar pic, and that is in fact Cracky, from The Wacky Adventures of Cracky, a title that can elicit a bit of a cynical giggle along the lines of “HA! That parrot is on the crack!” because, you know, “Cracky.”

    Which reminds me of that one time I had copies of Crack Comics and Speed Comics which I displayed together in our store’s glass case, because who doesn’t love drug humor? Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve related that story here on the site before, but I don’t care because I’m old and entitled to repeat myself.

  • GQ asks

    “…What do you make of this whole Captain-America-shipping-on-a-Monday thing that has some people so worked up?”

    Frankly, I’ve been trying not to think about it…I’ve got other things to worry about. (In short: Marvel is offering to release Captain America to retailers a couple of days earlier than the standard new comics day to take advantage of supposed media coverage re: Cap about the same time.) I know my sharp-dressed fellow funnybook slinger James Sime isn’t thrilled about this is being handled, and you can read there for more details about it.

    Like I said the other day, I’m not really expecting a huge media-caused bump on this comic, since a character (presumably) returning isn’t quite the draw that knocking off a character is, but we’ll see. I’m not going to lose any sleep over it, and I don’t think we’re going to bother with the early release.

  • I linked to this gentleman’s Swamp Thing pic the other day, and he was good enough to let me know that he has the initial pencils for a Man-Thing drawing up. Not just Man-Thing…but Man-Thing Versus The Vision! The battle you demanded! Looks good so far, and am looking forward to the finished piece.
