Spotlight Sunday 4.26.20

The receipt of a free “gift” means that there are spoilers ahead for… “We need to have enough energy for tomorrow!” Lately, against my better financial judgment, largely, I think, because of losing my regular Wednesday ritual, I’ve been buying some old comics online. Mostly issues of Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane, as I’ve often wished […]

Spotlight Sunday 12.15.19

The biggest change to the status quo since the last one means there are spoilers ahead for… My name is Clark Kent. I haven’t done a Spotlight post in exactly two months, and I hadn’t really planned to break that streak, but someone elseweb expressed an interest in reading what I have to say about […]

Spotlight Sunday 10.20.19

A modern adaptation of a classic radio adventure that helped promote real-world justice means that the Spotlight has been turned on once again to reveal some spoilers for… The emblem on his chest looked like a badge, or maybe a shield. It told everyone that he was Superman, and that was awesome. In 1946, as […]

Spotlight Sunday 9.29.19

Getting lots of reminders about a comic I read to destruction as a kid means that the Spotlight is shining again today, and there are spoilers ahead for… OMAC lives so that man may live! Over on Twitter, there’s been a lot of discussion about comics that have gotten me thinking about this particular issue […]

Spotlight Sunday 7.7.18

The return of a certain Ace reporter to her own title after a too-long absence means that there is a temporary return of the Spotlight and spoilers ahead for… “Espionage and investigative journalism have a lot in common. More than just the hours.” I remain annoyed that last year DC didn’t do anything to acknowledge […]

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 […]
