I wait each year for the new season of BBC’s Top Gear, and it was with no less anticipation that I eagerly awaited season 21. Being disappointed never enters into the equation during my anticipation, which can be a set up for failure; should it not be as wonderful as I hope, the fall would be... + continue reading

Posted by R.J. Carter
Back in the mid-90s, I was picking up Joseph Michael Linsner's Dawn books. I didn't always get the content, but I certainly appreciated the artwork. In years prior, I also snuck peeks at Vampirella (I was too young to be allowed to get caught reading them), also for reasons of artwork as well as... + continue reading

When I was a fledgling comics reader, one of my favorite genres was the horror anthology. I was too young to have enjoyed EC in its heyday, so my go-to titles were the DC books like House of Mystery, House of Secrets, Ghosts, Tales of the Unexpected and Ghosts. For a brief, bright time during that... + continue reading

I wait each year for the new season of BBC’s Top Gear, and it was with no less anticipation that I eagerly awaited season 21. Being disappointed never enters into the equation during my anticipation, which can be a set up for failure; should it not be as wonderful as I hope, the fall would be even greater.

In years prior, I also snuck peeks at Vampirella (I was too young to be allowed to get caught reading them), also for reasons of artwork as well as the cutting edge mature storylines. Two great... + continue reading
