For this week's RETRO REVIEW, I'm looking at the two issue series; The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect that was published by Marvel Comics.  The first issue is dated December 1992 and the second issue is dated January 1993.  Or are they?  My copies were bought fresh off the comic book rack when they came out and are … [Read more...]

RETRO REVIEW: Man of Steel # 1

I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are reading this, but here in Michigan it is bitter cold!  But I'm not going to let that stop me from writing up a new RETRO REVIEW.  This week, I thought I'd pick out a comic from DC Comics, so I rummaged around in the DC annex of the comic book vault, mark 2, and … [Read more...]

Fabulous Find: Merry Christmas From Me To You

Thank you for finding you way back to this week's Fabulous Find.  But I should be honest, and say right up front, this post really isn't about one of my finds, but simply a wish of Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my readers, friends and family. But in doing so, I've dug out some Christmas artwork/images … [Read more...]

Strange Times & Places: Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure

Welcome back to Strange Times & Places, where today we’re looking at one of the oddest AU stories I’ve encountered to date.
