Most Trade Paperbacks (TPBs) don't hold a special place in the hearts of comic book collectors. They're stories collected in book format which means they're reprints. If you're not into collecting and just in it for the story then a TPB is one of the greatest things to ever happen to comic books. You don't have to go searching for old copies to complete the story. TPBs are great for learning about new characters or to get reacquainted with some of your old favourites. The TPBs do have a few drawbacks. Some of the charm of comic books are the letters to the editor, extra stories at the end which are usually a two or three page story for an upcoming book, and in the old comics you got those great advertisements. You won't get variant covers or fancy holograms either. Read more...

Over 20 years ago, DC Comics and Marvel Comics did the unthinkable. The two companies teamed up to settle the ultimate debate, with the help of their fans. Who would win in a smackdown of epic proportions between their greatest heroes? Think of it as Wrestlemania, but involving your favorite superheroes! Read more...

I just this week finished the final chapter of Marvel’s Secret Wars event, which ended an era for the Marvel Universe and opened a new one, an ALL-NEW ALL DIFFERENT one. I’m a lifelong Marvel Comics reader...and no matter what they do to their characters and stories, I’m going to remain that way. After all is said and done, I’m a lifer. And boy, are things different than just 10 years ago. Some good changes, some bad ones...but evolution has always been a key element to Marvel and its characters.  Change isn’t a bad thing. But now, in the Marvel Movie Era, the movies now impact those changes. Read more...

tom leadBy the time I actually get this finished and published it could be any day of the week. I mention this because as I sit here in the palatial offices of eXPress News & Reviews, eXpertComics.com (my desk at my house) it is Throw Back Thursday. I mention that because on Thursday's at the Caped Crusader Chronicles page on Facebook they have Throw Back Thursday and it is one of my favorite things of the week. Between Rick, Elizabeth, Dave, Don, Gino and the rest of the fine folks I get to see covers of books none of us normally get to see and sometimes read a little about them. Caped Crusaders was one of the reasons I started a column about bringing back some super heroes that I hadn't seen or hadn't been used for a very long time. Another reason is Marvel's All New Marvel Now thing and the fact that they have brought back some titles I read when I was a much younger person.In my two previous columns with this title,  I had started with Marvel moved on to First Comics, and was going to do a Malibu and a DC version (who knows I might still). When tonight rolled around and I started looking for my contribution to TBT I went Marvel Bronze and discovered a bunch of really good books Marvel had let fall to the side. This isn't so much a character I want brought back but titles so it will be a little different. So with that in mind, here is Part Three of Bring Them Back Alive.   Read more...

lobo bisley 2I’ve done a fair share of interviews with comic creators over the past few years, and some people you think are going to be awesome, turn out to be not so much...and then there are others that, for whatever reasons, you think are going to be crappy interviews, and they turn into great ones. And then, you interview someone who you have so much respect for...and they turn out to be freakin’ amazing people. The latter is the case with Simon Bisley. Simon, in case you don’t know, was a big part of the “british invasion” in the late 80’s and early 90’s in comics. Along with such creators from across the pond such as Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore and painter Glenn Fabry (whom I got an interview with as well), Simon took the American comics world by storm and changed the entire scope of comics...forever. Bisley’s out of control, take no prisoners art style has made its impact on comics history, but his legacy is truly how he took a minor, b-list, skinny, alien bounty hunter named Lobo, and made him a muscle-bound, foul mouthed, womanizing, heavy metal badassed DC Comics icon!

FCBDFree comic book day is almost as good as Christmas, but definitely better than Columbus Day.  Sadly FCBD has come and gone this year so hopefully you had a chance to get out there and scoop up some great free comics. Hopefully you also got a chance to purchase some comics while you were scavenging the free ones. Participating comic shop owners purchase the free comics to give out to customers and most shops go above and beyond that. Some shops have artists who sign books and sell sketches. Others have refreshments, music and seasoned cosplayers.  This year FCBD was on May 3rd, the day before Star Wars Day so it was a weekend long celebration for the fans. Many stormtroopers showed up at FCBD events and many of the patrons dressed up in their best superhero costumes. FCBD seems to get bigger and better every year. Read more...
