Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (3.19.14) – Spring Break Fo’evah

Spring Break!

Yo kids, it’s that time of the year.  The land thaws, the days get longer, and the great migratory pattern of the teeming, oversexed youth of the nation marches southward.  It’s also time to break out those wallets, and ramp our nation’s commerce back up.  For those not into buying nunchakus and shorts in every color, we got Ghost Rider rockin a hemi on hell-wheels, Daredevil changes locales, more John Prophet, more Kamala Khan, and Superman off da’ chain all comin at us today!  I got comic books in my blood, ya’ll, and I hope you do, too.  This is the American Dream.  It’s Spring Break, ninjas!  So put on your dark tannin’ oil, spritz on two kinds of Calvin Klein, and hit up the LCS for this week’s dopest selections.

Hit us up in the comments below to celebrate the accumulation of material goods with us, particularly of the four-color variety.

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (1.29.14) – Let’s Open Up the Mailbag!


Wednesday has arrived, and you guys all know what that means, right?  Of course you do, or you wouldn’t be here.  It’s comic book day, and man are there a ton of titles dropping right on our faces this week!  And I’m here to tell you about ‘em.  Meanwhile, CaffPow says I gotta do some housecleaning and start answering all the mail I’ve got piled up in the OL offices.  To be honest I am more than worried that the mail might contain death threats, anthrax, or comped copies of Superior Spider-Man (you can’t make me read that shit! – I won’t!), but I’m going to suffer through it for you, my beloved fans.  All six of you (hi Grandma!).

So let’s get to the comics and the fanmail and the lying cats and the space cowboys, mmkay?

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (1.15.2013) – He’s A Miracleman, Man

Miracleman #1.

What if Superman took over the world…and the story ends there?  Not because there isn’t anything left to tell, or that once a man who is also a god declares himself king there is no more strife in the world.  No – the story ends because DC loses the rights to Superman, and the character remains tied up in litigation for years, and the story CAN’T be told.  Sorry, no third act.  Curtains.

Hit the jump and let’s talk about the very similar story of Miracleman, the dawn of deconstructionism in comics, and how the third act in the story of Miracleman begins again this week courtesy of Marvel!

Oh, and we’ll also be chatting about some of the other cool books dropping this week (full list can be found HERE) so if Miracleman ain’t yo’ thang you might find some other goodies within.
