Spotlight Sunday (Kind Of) 5.12.19

The Spotlight isn’t back, exactly – I’m still mulling some options – but I have a thing I want to talk about, and today is Sunday, so…call it Flashlight Sunday. (Flashlight Funday? No? No.) Anyway, what I want to talk about is a thing I’ve been talking about a lot elsewhere, so I might as […]

Spotlight Sunday 3.10.19

An additional data point in favor of my long-held theory means that there are spoilers ahead for… “Come, you ignorant beast! Try and kill me so I can live again!” I was reluctant, as per my nebulous rules for writing about comics, to tackle an issue of Conan again so soon, but this issue provides […]

Spotlight Sunday 3.3.19

Familiar faces in somewhat-unfamiliar places mean that there are spoilers ahead for… “How many times must I remind old dudes that I’m 16?” This was one of the heavier weeks at the comic shop, meaning that I had a lot of books to choose from for the Spotlight which can, sometimes, be a bit of […]

Spotlight Sunday 2.24.19

For the sake of mixing things up every so often, I’ve decided to do something a bit different today. Instead of talking about one of the latest comics I’ve bought or one from my existing library of comics, I want to talk a bit about an interesting bit of comics-related social media reminiscing in which […]

Spotlight Sunday 2.17.19

The fact that you can’t judge a book by its cover means that there are spoilers ahead for… “I do hope you didn’t kill the Dwarves. I’m running low on hammers.” I hadn’t wanted to tackle another issue of Thor so soon, given how frequently the Spotlight shines on it – if I’m honest, I […]

Spotlight Sunday 2.10.19

There was a lot to choose from this week, but the publication of a “lost” story means that there are spoilers ahead for… “I was wrong. Ma and Pa were wrong. I can’t do this.” Back in the Aughts, DC published a series called Superman Confidential, featuring story arcs by different creative teams that focused on […]

Spotlight Sunday 2.3.19

The fact that I’ve got “Thunderstruck” stuck in my head means that there are spoilers ahead for… “The continued existence of people is the only hope for something other than your culture.” I don’t recall a time in my life in which I saw comics published by Charlton being sold individually on store shelves or […]

Spotlight Sunday 1.27.19

I can’t spoil “The Biggest New Mystery in the DC Universe,” as it’s only the first issue so we don’t know what the mystery is, but there are spoilers ahead for… “Actually, yeah.” I was as uncertain about what would be in the Spotlight this week as I was about picking up the first issue […]

Spotlight Sunday 1.20.19

While there were some good books in my stack this week, I have to admit that nothing really jumped out at me as Spotlight material. There was, however, some significant industry news this past week, and so I decided to do a little something different, so today the Spotlight shines on… In a recent post […]

Spotlight Sunday 1.13.19

A bit of corporate synergy means that there are spoilers ahead for… “You know, I’ll take that sass from just about anyone else in my life…but not from Zeus’ granddaughter!” One of the things I was most eagerly anticipating in 2019 was the return of Young Justice. The animated series, that is. After years of demand […]
