    At Detroit Fanfare 2013, Comics the Gathering staff writer Seth “Wombat” Morris got a chance to interview John Ostrander. Ostrander is famously the architect and writer of the classic Suicide Squad comics and acclaimed author of Grimjack, Martian Manhunter, Star Wars: Legacy, and much more.

    Wombat then promptly got bogged down with work and never had time to transcribe his interviews, which sat in a dusty vault for a year...

  • Happy upcoming Hallows Eve everyone, we here at COMICS THE GATHERING really want to get in the spirit and take turns sharing our favorite horror comics.

     

     

    My absolute favorite horror comic book so far was IDW’s Monster & Madman.  It was written by Steve Niles; a writer with a very strong horror/suspense/terror pile of stories to his name.  The amazing creepy art duties were handled by Damien Worm.  His amazing lettering work was present here too.

     

     

    Monster & Madman was a three issue

  • When I was younger, my dad worked quite a bit. He actually still does – he’s a fairly specialized doctor, one of the most qualified in his unit at the hospital he works at. He sees patients, runs clinics, gives consults, and teaches at the local university’s medical school, as well as being on call a few times a month for consultations. He was certainly never absentee, but he worked hard and came home tired, so he didn’t always have a lot of time to just hang out. I know now that that’s something that he had to work on – finding a good balance between being
  • My children are going to be raised by comic books.
     
    I don’t mean that in the Generation Y, absentee parent “raised by TV” sense. Nor do I mean it in the way I consider myself raised by comics. For me, comic books gave body to concepts I knew I wanted to be true. Nothing drove home what it meant to put the well-being of others before your own like Captain America diving in front of gunfire to shield a couple of kids in the Smithsonian in Mark Waid and Ron Garney’s Captain America vol. 3 #3, the first comic I ever read.
     
  • So here it is, Think Alike Productions baby in all it's issue 2 glory.  The Agency #2 will be going live on Comixology tomorrow and it begs to entertain you.  Just click HERE for the Comixology page.


    Issue #1 did what an issue #1 was supposed to do.  A solid foundation was laid out, mysteries arose and we got a glimpse of the bait that was being hanged over our heads.  So in comes issue #2 and reinforced issue #1 with a lot of meaning and origin.  The damned thing also adds
  • God is Dead Chapter One ImageTypically I review subject matter because it has impacted me in such a way, I feel compelled to write a review about it to expand upon my thoughts, as well as to give reason enough to someone to want to experience it for themselves; which is the case for my writing this review regarding “God is Dead,” by Jonathan Hickman. Now, before I formally start


  • Today I will be reviewing, briefly, Uncanny X-men # 2 and # 3. We will meet two villains, both of which you've probably heard of. We will see how the Vanisher got his start, and the first exploits of The Blob.



    Volume Two opens with the team rushing back to the Professor, who has mentally called for them. Beast goes up a wall and rides the top of a train. Angel flies low and literally picks up some lady fans. Jean becomes cross with lifts them onto a roof. That

    So here is the first installment of my reading the entire run of Uncanny X-Men starting, yes, with Issue # 1 on Marvel Unlimited.

    Let's get right into it. The cover (show above) bills them as the strangest superheroes of all. The characters look dramatically different from what we are used to with modern incarnations. You might not even recognize the man hanging from the... the... bar thing. And here in Issue # 1 we're also introduced to Magneto

  • Let me reinforce this, I am terrible at previewing books.  I spoil, I am a spoiler, a habitual line crossing spoiler.  I’ll try not to spoil this issue, but no promises will be made.


    The OSSM crew delivered another hit!  These guys have a run away success on their hands.


     

    The book picks up right where issue one did.  Same pace, same level of energy, and enough “Holy crap” moments that’ll make you accidentally drop your copy!


     

    The art’s skill is consistent with

  • So the most unpronounceable weapon in the world will now be wielded by a female Thor.  Interestingly enough, the hammer reads “Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor”.

     

     

    It’s clear that this isn't a spin off character or a side kick.  This is Thor, and she’s got boobs.

     

     

    And that’s cool, and as long as the story pulls everything together neatly I’m all for this.  But this is where this gets me, how does Thor no longer deserve
