Suspiciously Unsolid Wall

Hello, and welcome to episode 197 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Issue 20 brings to a conclusion the plot line involving the harmonica, the Valkyrie and Destiny that has been running through the last two issues of Marvel Two-in-One, and because The Thing is along for the ride, we are too. »

Ed Catto: That Other British Invasion

5 September 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

One day in the early 80s, I was with my girlfriend in a shopping mall. Somehow I had been relegated to the role of sidekick while she shopped. I liked to do a lot of things with her, but shopping wasn’t high on that list. I was bored so I decided to buy a comic book to read while she shopped.

Back then I was enjoying a lot of comics and purchasing them every week at Kim’s Collectible Comics and Records. But one store in that mall had a spinner rack filled with comics, and I knew I could snag an issue that I had missed.

I evaluated the comics available on that rack and hoped that one would be my salvation from the dreariness of shopping. I reached out for Swamp Thing #21, and was surprised to find an unfamiliar writer wrote it. I decided to give it a try nonetheless. »

Great Job, Internet!: Break out the Quack Fu, Howard The Duck turns 30 today

1 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Not every anniversary is a celebration.

It’s been a long, strange trip for Howard The Duck. Created by Steve Gerber in 1973 for Marvel Comics, the anthropomorphic fowl was a source for social satire and various misadventures, even running for president in 1976 (and allegedly receiving thousands of write-in votes). He’s disappeared and reappeared many times in Marvel comics throughout the decades, most recently in a series written by Chip Zdarsky and drawn by Joe Quinones. But in between his various escapades in the panels of Marvel comics, the character has made a brief stop over in Hollywood with 1986’s film, Howard The Duck, which was released 30 years ago today.

The film was directed by William Huyck, who also cowrote with Gloria Katz, a man best known for his work writing on American Graffiti and Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and produced by George ...

Lea Thompson returns to Howard the Duck

30 years after appearing in the Howard The Duck film, Lea Thompson is making a return appearance to his world...

"I can make it here in Hunger City, nothing's gonna stop me. I'll know I'll survive."

Those lyrics from Cherry Bomb's "Hunger City" from the Howard The Duck soundtrack have proven to be quite prophetic in the three decades since the infamous megabomb first hit theaters. As someone who was there on opening day and has enjoyed seeing the transition that the movie has made from cliched punchline to cult hit, there's more than a little bit of vindication that I, an outsider, feel about the flick's reversal of fortune. So I can only imagine the daffy trip that Lea Thompson must look back at the Howard The Duck experience as.

Over the years, Thompson has regularly discussed the film without any real shame or snark. It was a bomb for sure, »

Marvel's Unused Nightmare on Elm Street Comic Art Unearthed

10 May 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Perhaps you don't remember, or simply weren't alive at the time, but Marvel Comics caught A Nightmare on Elm Street fever back in 1989, five years after the original movie came out. And they embarked on a magazine-style comic book that revolved around dream demon Freddy Krueger. The series didn't last very long at just two issues. Now, the unreleased cover art of the canceled third issue has been unveiled by artist Joe Jusko.

The comic book series introduced the new character of Dr. Juliann Quinn. A psychiatrist, she set out to investigate the nightmare epidemic that had run rampant through Springwood, inflicting the local teenagers. She teams with a young woman almost killed by Freddy Krueger named Allison Hayes. The two set out to eradicate the killer, and end his run of terror once and for all.

The comic book was presented in black and white, and featuring quite a »
