Spawn #19

by Greg Capullo & Mark Pennington and Tom Orzechowski & Andrew Grossberg

“Showtime” Part 1
Dedicated To: Chris Claremont

This atomic event may tell us something about the effects of mundane high-energy particle bombardment on infernal matter.

Elsewhen/where: The place is known as The Overlap. It is a reality that intersects all planes of existence. It is the birthplace of what’s called magic.

There’s no way I’m going to believe you’re Harry Houdini… Aren’t you dead or something?

WildC.A.T.s Trilogy #1-3 (1993)

WildC.A.T.S Special #1 (1993)

by Travis Charest and Steve Gerber with various

…I suppose Hightower’s entitled to some braggin’ rights this time. He and that Coda, Sister Artemis, got the drop on us but good. I guess that’s the worst part for me, The Grifter, bein’ suckered by my old friend, Lonely, into a trap, only to be used as bait to lure the other WildC.A.T.s.

Bring you back to Themiscrya and lead a revolt against me, Andromache, the ruling Majestrix of The Coda!

The most brutal war on the planet– at the moment– is the one between Yurgovia and Kasmia in Eastern Europe. The Kasmians are poorly organized, poorly armed– all but defenseless against the armies of the Yurgovian Baroness Destine.

    Comic Reader Résumé #6

    Probation (Spring 1983)

    ré·su·mé [rez-oo-mey, rez-oo-mey]
    noun
    1. a summing up; summary.
    2. a brief written account of personal, educational, and professional qualifications and experience, as that prepared by an applicant for a job.

    In Comic Reader Résumé, I use Mike’s Amazing World of Comics to travel back through time via his virtual newsstand to the genesis point of my lifelong collecting of comics. From there, I can offer a “work history” of my fandom through my active purchasing of (relatively) new comic books beginning in January of 1982, when my interest in the medium went from sporadic and unformed to routine on through compulsive accumulation. To streamline the narrative and keep the subjects at least remotely contemporaneous, I will not generally be discussing what we call back issues: books bought long after their publication date. Sometimes, I will cover a book published on a given month that I picked up within a year or so that date, and I give myself an especially wide berth on this aspect in the first couple of “origins” episodes. We’ll get more rigidly on point as my memories crystallize and my “hobby” spirals out of control into the defining characteristic of my life (eventually outpacing squalor and competing neuroses.) It’s part personal biography, part industry history, and admittedly totally self-indulgent on my part.

    This episode includes Captain America #281 & 283, Avengers #231, U.S. 1 #1, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #11, Batman #359, Spider-Woman #50, DC Comics’ The New Teen Titans in cooperation with The President’s Drug Awareness Campaign #2, Power Man and Iron Fist #193, Alpha Flight #1, All-Star Squadron #24, and The Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior #3.
