There are only so many interesting things about comics that can be
fun to know about for one reason or another. And on this menu are
more than a few catagories to enjoy for how great or silly or just
plain entertaining they are for the most part. So take a look
around at what's available here, for features that range from
great stuff I've read in past years of my reading comics to silly
costumes that are silly for the wrong reasons to retcons that are
either good, okay either way, or just plain bad. It's quite a
variety of ideas that I'm writing up here, that can be interesting
for all these different reasons, and the main reason I'm putting
them here is for you to enjoy, everybody!
In this spot, you'll find write-ups for some of my favorite
stories and issues of comic books I've read since my childhood,
and that were recommended for all times and for all ages.
In this spot, this is where you'll find whatever came across to me
as a big waste of time, and which should be tossed into the depths
of oblivion, but should also be told about for the most part so
that you'll know why.
Some character namings can be great, but some can be just plain
silly and stupid. And here's my list of anything that I consider
to be worthy of that catagory.
Well not just costumes, it can also include ridiculous hairstyles
and the like. So go and have a good laugh at some of the examples
I've provided in here, if you please.
Some great acronyms, abbreviations, and other nicknames and terms
that come from a lot of places around the world.
And not just from comics, but from many great people around the
world, in newspapers, entertainment, and so on. And you'll also
find plenty of goof-offs seen around the word baloons and such in
the yesteryear too! Click on either of the links above to check
out what's in store, and I always do my best to provide plenty.
There are times in comics when things like retcons and stuff like
that can be done. It can be either a good, an okay, or an utterly
bad thing. Sometimes these are also known as times when everything
you know about a character, a story, a period in history, is not
what you thought it was at first, or is mistaken, to say the
least. And here is the place where you'll find some examples of
what is either good, so-so, or just plain awful. For this reason,
I've put together three different catagories of my considerations
for all of these examples, according to how I view them. Click on
the link above to learn more details on what retcons are such are
for starters, and where the phrase "retcon" first came from, and
on any of the three links below to see what's in store.
This is where I write up my thoughts on various comics that have
been cancelled over the years. The list dates back to 1995, with
the discontinued titles being spoken about on either the month
that the last issue came out, or, around the time that the
cancellation was announced. Sometimes it's bad that it ended,
sometimes it's good, but either way, it can be a lot of fun to
talk about all or any of these cancelled books, both mainstream
And, for those interested in some history of how comics from a few
places across the world came to be, here's a special history item
I wrote, where I talk about comics from the US, and also from
Europe and Asia.
