Last new comic: Probably the Julius Schwartz "Superman" comic I bought a month or two ago from a comic shop.

Last comic bought:

- Two issues of "Capt. Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew"

- "World's Finest Comics" #271, with Roy Thomas' reconciling of all those Superman-Batman "first meeting" stories; I'd been wanting this one for quite awhile.

I brought my copy, and I finished it, man they just don't make comics like that anymore, no wait...

Superheroes and fun stories?

In this day and age?

Crazy I know, but that's what we have here and I loved it Cheesy


I also finished Rabid Eye: The Dream Art Of Rick Veitch Volume 1

TPB that I got for $1!

Dreamy Smiley Plus Superman pops up a few times Wink

Which is why I like Flare and the other comics offered by Heroic Publishing

They do have some free comics on their site. under previews.

I could easily see Flare as the inheritor of Supergirl's mantle

In a funny book format as opposed to TPB, Tim Sale's efforts in SOLO were notable esp his Supergirl (kara) Young Love tale..sob...choke

I also just finish reading:

Jack Cole and Plastic Man: Forms Stretched to Their Limits
by Art Spiegelman, Chip Kidd

Product Description:
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and illustrator Art Spiegelman joins forces with designer Chip Kidd to pay homage to the comic book hero Plastic Man and his creator, Jack Cole. Plastic Man is more than just a putty face--with his bad-boy past, he literally embodies the comic book form: the exuberant energy, flexibility, boyishness, and subtle hints of sexuality. And as cartoonists "become" each character they create, it can be said that Jack Cole himself resembles Plastic Man. Cole revealed the true magnitude and intensity of his imagination and inner thoughts as Plastic Man slithered from panel to panel--shifting forms and dashing from male to female, or freely morphing from a stiff upright figure to a being as soft as a Dali clock. With a compelling history, a V-necked red rubber leotard, a black-and-yellow striped belt, and very cool tinted goggles, Plastic Man is truly a cult classic, and this art-packed book will delight any fan.


Well worth reading if you like Plas like I do.
