The Comic Speculator: The Dark Knight (7/21/08)
Cover of Batman the Killing JokeUnless you live under a rock you’ve probably heard that the sequel to Batman, The Dark Knight, opened in theaters last Friday. If you’re reading this blog I can only assume that you are a nerd like me and you’ve already seen The Dark Knight at least once. The buzz around the new Batman is mainly centered on Health Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker. More >>


This Week in Geek 7/16 (7/21/08)
Cover of Kick Ass #3Wednesday is upon us yet again and that means one thing! Well one thing for comic nerds anyway. New comic day! It’s mid-july, crossovers season is in full swing, comic book movies rule the box office, the Cubs are still first in their division and the new Batman movie opens this weekend. Who could ask for more? More >>


This Week in Geek 7/10 (7/12/08)
Cover of Captain America White #0How many of you guys walked into your comic shop on Wednesday and panicked after seeing last week’s books still sitting on the self? Be honest. Who forgot it was a Holiday weekend? As with most long weekends UPS and the USPS get the day off. What’s that mean to nerds like you and me? More >>


Remembering Michael Turner (7/11/08)

The Comic Speculator: Hellboy (7/8/08)

This Week in Geek 6/25 (7/1/08)
Cover of X-Men Legacy #213As the rivers begin to recede so begins the new comics shipment delays. The shelves at your local comic shop may look a little bare this week. That’s not to say there isn’t a huge stack of new comics in your future. If you’re a Marvel nerd like me, between every Avengers book, three X-titles along with 1985 #2 and Iron Fist all coming out on the same day, you got buried. More >>


The Comic Speculator: Starman (6/24/08)
Cover of Starman vol 1 #26This Wednesday one of my favorite writers returns to comics after a much too long absence. ”James Robinson” wrote some of the most important and best comics of the 1990′s and then fell off the radar. Well not completely off the radar. Robinson left comics to pursue his writing carrier in Hollywood. More >>


This Week in Geek 6/18 (6/18/08)
cover to Incredible William Katt presents: Sparks #1Wednesday is here again but unfortunately it’s not new comic day for everyone. The flooding in the midwest has screwed up shipping schedules, pushed books back, and in some extreme cases has wiped out whole comic shops altogether. If your head is above water then count yourself lucky. More >>


The Comic Speculator: The Eternals (6/18/08)
Cover of Eternals #16This Wednesday Marvel revived the Eternals for yet another ”mini-series” in an attempt to once again reintroduce them to a new generation of readers or perhaps just to make some sense of who they are. More >>
