Long Beach Comic Con

The first ever Long Beach Comic Con was held a couple of weeks ago in Southern California. For a first time affair, the convention was fun and well attended. Saturday was packed with collectors and families.

Batman Dead?

With the hype and publicity surrounding the special appearance of Barrack Obama in the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man, I missed the apparent death of Batman. This happened in Final Crisis #6. The last issue of Final Crisis, #7, comes out today.
First off, spoiler alert. Don’t read ahead if you don’t want to know what [...]

The Spirit Movie Now Out

The Spirit movie is now out in theatres. It’s been out since Christmas, but I have not yet had a chance to see it. Unfortunately, the reviews are not that great.

Cheesy 1980’s Comic: Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew

Today I was posting online about some of the cheesy comics from the 1980’s and Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew immediately came to mind.

Featured Comic Book Dealer: ComicLink

Second to Ebay, ComicLink is one of the largest dealers of comic books and comic art on the Internet. Although, to be fair, like Ebay, they aren’t a traditional comic book dealer but more of a consignment house.

All-Star Batman and Robin #10 Printing Defect

All-Star Batman and Robin #10 was released and recalled yesterday. Apparently, some curse words that were supposed to be blacked out were not fully blacked out.
Although DC did a recall, many issues were sold and are now going for $20 or more on Ebay.
