Please forgive what is essentially a self-indulgent travelogue. Because, really, who likes looking at other people’s vacation photos? Fortunately I was able to shadow Sgt. Rock as he embarked on a solo reconnaissance mission to Arizona’s "Red Rock" country: Sedona and its environs. Here follows a photographic recap of a week scouting in one of…

Other seemingly newsworthy events were overshadowed this past summer by the release and limited availability of a small blue articulated action figure representing Gleek the blue monkey. Indeed, the furor over his exclusivity caught many in the mainstream news media unawares. Allegedly available to attendees of the San Diego Comic-Con, this piece of plastic memorabilia…

I’m getting very curious about the upcoming lineup for the JLA.  The current team has been decimated by current events in the DCU.  And upcoming covers have shown some interesting  stuff.  One shows Mon-El, Batman (Grayson), and Donna Troy.  I’ve long been a fan of the Titans, but am unsure how I feel about them…

Labor day weekend is upon us and as another summer fades into memory it makes me recall my own youth. The days before action figures and computer games. When the only theme parks in the world were Disneyland and Tivoli Gardens and I’d never been to either one. So kids had to make up their…

Yesterday, I was in the checkout line at a small grocery store in the next town over.  They used to have a store in my town, but constant road construction in front of their store finally killed of enough business that they closed that store. Anyway, I was driving by their store in the next…

G.I. Joe #21 and a New Generation I received one of my most memorable and influential gifts on Christmas day 1983. I was 11. My older brother, Joel, got me a one year subscription to the Marvel comic G.I. Joe. It was such a trill to once a month open the mailbox and see that brown paper wrapper with my name above…

The JLA.  The Worlds Greatest Super Heroes.  There are proponents for the return to each era of the team for current stories.  The "Big 7".  The Satellite Era.  JL International (Giffen/DeMattis).  Morrison era.  Post Obsidian Age, Meltzer/McDuffie.  All of these have their good and bad stories.  But one name bugs me every time I hear…
