The Non-Post Post

Well, Blogger™ (the service that runs this 'blog) was all kaputski this morning, so I couldn't put any new post up, like the usual Comics Chat Open Thread. Sorry about that. I blame Ken. Somehow it's his fault.

To keep you interested, here's something to look at and learn about:


The Three-Piece Welded Can
The three-piece can consists of a welded body and the classic sanitary end. This can offers cost advantages in comparison to other packaging formats and is available in many different sizes.

These three piece cans are available with and without beading on the side of the can, and both lithographic printing and paper labels are applicable.

You're welcome.

VENUSIAN on the front page of the York Daily Record!


"Venusian saves York again!" screams the front page headline of the Thursday, April 27, 2006 York Daily Record. Then: "Actually,he might be the next reality Sc-Fi Channel star." That's right! Our very own manager of the York Comix Connection, Josh Strouse, is entered as a contestant for the upcoming TV show "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?"!
From the article:
"According to the show's Web site, the program will feature 11 finalists as they live together in character in a "secret lair" and showcase not only their powers, but also their compassion, integrity and resourcefulness through various challenges. At the end of the six-episode series, the triumphant hero(ine) will not only be featured in a Sci-Fi Channel original movie, but also have a comic book created around their character. The show is set to air later this year."
How cool is that? Read the online article HERE. Come and meet The Venusian at the Comix Connection - York on Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 6th. Let's all give Josh our best wishes and hope he makes it all the way to the top! And then you can say "I knew him when."

Godzilla Fan Club notes


Godzilla Fan Club (A comixconnection.com Original Article)

Guest post by Evan Stultz

In the summer of 2005, my first article was published in G-FAN magazine. It was about my trip to Japan where I met one of the stars of Godzilla vs. King Ghidora, Robert Scott Field (who will be the honored guest at this year’s G-Fest) and saw Godzilla: Final Wars. I decided that most Japanese monsters fans probably didn’t have a place where they could discuss their fandom (passion?), so I thought “What the heck?” and started to put the pieces together. I had originally bought an issue of G-FAN magazine waaaay back when the Comix Connection was located at the Camp Hill Mall. I contacted the store about holding a fan club meeting, and they said that it would be great to hold it there. Apparently, a reporter for the Harrisburg Patriot-News had seen my club advertised and wanted to interview me. (A rundown of the interview can be found in issue 74 of G-FAN). A reporter and photographer came to the first club meeting, and the took notes and a few photographs. A few weeks later I was published on the front page of the “Local” section! (Thanks to my modesty complex, I won’t brag…) A few friends and family members came, but no one else attended. Undeterred I set a date for the next club, in the hopes of bringing in a few new attendees thanks to the newspaper coverage. The next club boomed and I think we had around 17 attendees, which was a great experience for me. The next club we had a large E-mail list, so we set the date and waited. At that meeting, attendance numbers had decreased a bit, but this was fine because it was easier to discuss what I had planned. We hovered around 4-5 people. I took a break for a month, (though I can’t imagine why) and planned to continue. Unfortunately, probably due to the “break” attendance numbers dropped yet again. However, we started to bring in more steady attendees and it was still very enjoyable on my part. The numbers stayed the same for month or two when we returned to our monthly schedule. I began to advertise that the Godzilla movies from certain decades would be discussed. This gave the talks some structure, although it was still very open. The last meeting, which was on March 19th, only one person attended but the feeling was still great and I enjoyed talking one-on-one. Later that week, Central PA magazine contacted my dad’s secretary and told her that a reporter had seen the advertisement on filmnews.com and wanted to write her column about my club. We also found out that my dad was going to be featured in an issue (and it might be the same issue) which is going to be released in August. Inspired by the reporter’s interest, I decided to put together a rigorous ad campaign. Just today, I began to put together the first color flier for the club. I discovered the brightness and contrast controls, and I tweaked the front cover of a G-Fan issue, and I placed the Godzilla picture on the ad. I used Wordart to create a more interesting font, and used colored writing. Though it took an hour and my patience was spent, I finally put together a solid ad. My dad’s secretary is getting copies made as I write this, and I hope that it will catch the eyes of more fans. The whole experience of creating and managing your own fan club is great fun, and I hope that fans of whatever genre they’re interested in will consider creating their own club. Of course I couldn’t go without thanking everyone at Comix Connection for giving me a location and helping out with the advertising and whatever I needed help with. If the club sounds enjoyable, try it out and see what you think… everyone is welcome!

NOTE: The next Godzilla Fan Club Meeting is THIS SUNDAY at 1:00PM at the Mechanicsburg Comix Connection! Also, anyone interested in entering the Godzilla Model Painting Contest should remember to bring your SIX BUCKS in for the model kit!

I suppose this was inevitable...

Apparently the major publishers will be seeking companies who want to get some "product placement" in their comic books! See an article at ICV2 HERE. And here's the intro to the WALL STREET JOURNAL article HERE. (Sorry, but you need a subscription to the WSJ Online to read the whole thing.)

Remember when those nasty Reese's Pieces were being scarfed up in that movie by the equally nasty E.T. The Extraterrestrial?














I wonder how much it would be to put COMIX CONNECTION in the background of a Spider-man comic book?

BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL review


Blade of the Immortal

Guest Review by Jeff Rohaly

I have been collecting comics for over 20 years and nothing has kept my attention like Hiroaki Samura’s Blade of the Immortal. No, this doesn’t have anything to do with that katana wielding vampire crap starring Wesley Snipes. Blade of the Immortal is fictional samurai epic set in feudal Japan. Yeah, been there, done that you say? Not like this.

Back about 10 years ago I began trying out manga after getting hooked on anime. Like a drug addict looking for a new fix I saw the 1st issue of Blade of the Immortal in the Manga section and snapped it up. I‘ve been hooked ever since. This story of a ronin made immortal and his traveling companion set on vengeance will suck you in like heroin in an opium den. The plot and subplots twist and turn in ways never expected. The characters have depth and layers that continue to be peeled back issue after issue. And I haven’t even talked about the art yet. In my opinion this series is even better than (dare I say it?) Lone Wolf and Cub.

Currently this is one of only two comics that I get each month. After almost a decade of issues I still anticipate the next one arriving in my local comic store as much as I did when the series first started. Over the years I’ve seen many good comics go quickly downhill for lack of good character or story development. Samura’s epic is an exception to the rule in the Manga world. Most of the series is available in graphic novel format. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.

Airing the Linnen: My Top Four Games - #4



Guest Post by Brian Linnen


Our Friendly Local Comic Shoppe has been building up their stock of games over the past few months; you probably have noticed. Here are, in the humble opinion of the author, the top four games that they are carrying:

# 4 * Ticket To Ride* (Days of Wonder).

This is the best cross-over game that I have ever played. By this I mean that even folks who don't normally play board games will come to it and walk away having enjoyed themselves. It's a cinch to learn, features high quality components, and lots of fun. You earn points by building railroad lines between various cities, and if you want to make your friends miserable, cut them off in their attempts to do the same thing. * Ticket to Ride: Europe* takes the basic game and adds a few special features to it, and the brand new* Ticket to Ride: Marklin* somehow adds passengers to the mix. I haven't been able to play that one yet, but it looks good. A game of* Ticket to Ride* usually takes about an hour.


(Ed.: Stay tuned for the rest of the Top 4... coming soon!)

Comics from the Middle East!


WHO ARE THE 99?

In Saudi Arabia, a massive, hulking creature has escaped from a government holding facility, and no force on earth can stop him.

In Paris, A UNESCO official, psychiatrist and historian, dreams of world peace and chases ancient legends about mystical gemstones.

In the UAE, the kidnapped daughter of a tycoon escapes, bringing with her a gift and a curse - an enduring and ugly vision of a dying world.

And sitting in his dark tower, an ancient and powerful evil, spoken of only in legend, watches and waits for the signs that his true reign is near.


This is pretty cool... Kuwaiti-based Teshkeel Comics is releasing a line of comic books with Islamic characters that operate in the Middle East. Read the interview with publisher Naif al-Mutawa HERE.

Russian Mickey Mouse!

Here's an oddity from my collection that I completely forgot about until I ran across it in a box the other day... a Russian-language MICKEY MOUSE comic book! Behold:



It's dated 1990, so I guess once that wall went down the valiant forces of capitalism fanned out across the countryside of the old Soviet Union looking to spread the joys of freedom, democracy and liberty, and perhaps to make a few rubles on the side! Anyway, this comic says that it's the "1st Russian Version Mickey Mouse Magazine - 1990 Limited Issue - $10 Suggested Retail Price". Other than that, I know very little else, as this comic is still (*blush*) sealed in it's original shrinkwrap bag... sorry about that.

I'm confused

OK, to start things off, the title at the top of this issue of HEART THROBS #106, (February 1967, DC) throws the reader for a loop.


"3 Girls -- Their Lives -- Their Loves"?

Whadda who? I don't see three girls! I see a girl and two guys! And then things get really weird. The word balloon reads "Please darling -- Believe me -- I didn't want this to happen!" as a gal and an older man look on as a second, younger man comes through the door, surprising them in their embrace. The only problem? I THINK THE OLD GUY IS THINKING THAT WORD BALLOON! Look where it's pointing!


To the old guy, not the girl! Well, that changes things! Yikes! I'm confused! Bring me a war comic book with Sgt. Rock in it, I need to clear my head!

Thanks guys! A great time was had by all! And the cake. The cake was awesome. The punch, not so much. But seriously, I love these kind of events - when we get to see skilled creators ply their craft right before our eyes. It's always amazing to me to see someone create something out of ink, paper, and raw talent. Thanks for coming to York guys, and best wishes for much success in the future!

Oooh, I almost forgot this:


A jam sketch by all five guest artists! (OK, Mike Hawthorne hasn't done his yet, but he will. When he comes in to finish the Giant Comic Panel of Bruce Lopez, One Man Gang. Real soon. Yep.)

Airing the Linnen: Queen Reigns!

Guest post by Brian Linnen

Having attended two Queen + Paul Rodgers concerts in the past few days, the music of my favorite band has been running through my mind pretty much non-stop. And THAT fact has reminded me that I wanted to share a link that I discovered a few months ago.
It's for the website of Mike Dawson who is a writer and illustrator of independent comics. He is currently working on an autobiographical piece about his high school years and much of it ties in with his love of Queen's music. Even if you don't like the band though, the story is compelling enough that I think you would enjoy it. Check it out if you have time - he has over 60 pages completed and posted, with more added every Thursday.



It's great stuff! I hope it eventually comes out as a book.
