    Welcome to the conclusion of my 8 examples of exceptional art in comics. Continuing in the same vein as Part 1, this is a list of 4 more comics that succeed in providing a distinctive mix of originality and excellence in their illustrations.

     

    With this list I have tried to keep a steady balance of both popular and underrated books. Now obviously, with only eight examples, I cannot help but leave out many noteworthy mentions that have more than earned their right for attention. These are not the absolute eight best drawn books ever published; they

    The 90's were hard times for comics. I could spout off an abundance of cliches regarding Rob "Pouches" Liefeld and the general bombast of the industry at the time, but that would be cheap.


    All I really have to say is: Superman had a mullet. Anything else one can say about the dark blot of comic book history between 1986 and 1998 becomes redundant in light of this.

    Comics are a wonderful literary medium; in their pages we find some of the most heroic characters, fantastically enticing stories, and remarkably cerebral plotlines. They possess the funniest of dialogues, and detail the most tragic of misfortunes. They give us all of the wonders that we find in the greatest of novels, but also something more. The true draw of a comic isn’t simply its masterful writing—it’s the combination of an excellent script and beautiful illustration. It is the artwork that truly sets the comic apart.

    A frequent debate I have often entertained with other history geeks goes something like this:  If you could chose, would you rather live during the dawning of a great civilization such as Greece or Rome, or would you rather experience the final days that great civilization?  It is an incredibly interesting question that can ignite many an argument.  You see, being born during the formation of a great civilization or empire means a lot of hard work, but at the same time it means being a part of the creation of something fantastic.  The men and women who

  • The Martian Manhunter has always been one of my favorite DC characters. The Martian Manhunter or J'onn J'onzz (his real name)  has never been a bestselling character but has proven to be a appreciated character never theless.

     

    Debut
    The Martian Manhunter first appeared in the silver age of comics. His first appearance  was in the Detective Comics series. Later J'onn would join the Justice League. Being a member of the justice league is where J'onn is known best for. Until the Crisis on infinite earths reboot, J'onn

  • Before you read any further, there are many spoilers on this list. You’ve been warned! With Halloween just around the corner, I started to have dark thoughts, thoughts of what would be the scariest moments in comic books. They could be moments of fear & despair or disturbing moments or even moments of pure shock value. This was a challenge coming up with a top 10 list, it would’ve been easier to write a list of horror movie moments, because movies have sound, music and jump scares to really give you a fright. Terrifying moments in comics force you to use your imagination,

    That time of year has arrived once again. The trees have shed their leaves, the days have gotten shorter, stores have stocked up on fun-sized candy bars, and plastic swords have received a prompt boost in sales—October has come.

     

    This fantastic month plays host to one of my favoured mainstream holidays, the harrowing All Hallow’s Eve—a wonderful affair of rubber masks, sugary treats, and spooky stories. This particular holiday has been wildly embraced by the entertainment industry, which often offers yearly specials of appropriately

  • Hey everybody, I know this blog’s a little late, but I’d like to write about our Ottawa Comiccon 2012 experience from May 12, 2012. This was the very first & official Comiccon for Ottawa and it was a blast to attend. With the help of this very website, Stephen and I had our very own media passes to promote CTG. With free passes around our necks and smiles on our faces, we showed up early and waltzed in an hour before the official opening. I was a little disappointed to find out

  • You’ve heard of fantasy football? Well this is fantasy comics. I’ve often wondered if I was the big cheese at Marvel, DC or any other comic book company, that I’d imagine I’d have some sort of pull to get the projects I want to see put together. Insane crossovers, some of my favourite writers & artist teaming up and maybe some new super hero titles I’ve only dreamed of. So without further ado, I present to you, in no particular order… “My own fantasy comics”
