Dueling Picks of the Week

Top Ten Books of the Week (4/28/2014)

One of Joe’s comics gets the nod this week for #1 book. Part super hero, part mystery, this book has been a real page turner with each issue. Check it out! 1. Protectors Inc. (Image) 2.

Flashback Friday

My favorite superhero is Spider Man but my favorite super team was, is and always will be the Legion of Super Heroes. Back in January of 1980, the Legion finally got their own ongoing book with issue #259. It marked the beginning of a fabulous era of storytelling with this heroic team from the 30th […]

Flashback Friday

World’s Finest #235 has the distinction of being the greatest comic book cover of all time. Interestingly, the event seen on the cover is revealed in the first two pages of the book and has nothing to do with the plot of the story which sees Superman and Batman team up to stop the villainous […]
