Victorian Horror right here in Pennsylvania


Hey, have you seen the new VICTORIAN HORRORS OF OLD MAUCH CHUNK comic? It's a pretty cool Victorian Era-styled and themed horror comic from Mauch Chunk's own Michael Bann, with story and art assists by Robert Caton and Allan Gallo, straight out of Jim Thorpe, PA. Mauch Chunk? Jim Thorpe? CLICK HERE to read about this Pennsylvania town, which was home of the first roller coaster, the Mauch Chunk Switchback Gravity Railroad, located atop Mt. Pisgah. (I just love all the varied names of towns and places found in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania!)

Solar #10 - A neat gimmick

Solar #10, published by Valiant Comics back in 1993, contained one of the coolest gimmicks in a gimmick-laden era. Triple-G recently brought in a bunch of Valiants to trade in, and I got to read (again) one of my favorite books from the early 1990s - SOLAR: MAN OF THE ATOM #1-10. The coolest thing about this comic was that each of the first ten issues had a bonus 8-page center section in each issue that retold SOLAR's origin, written by Bob Layton and drawn by a favorite artist of mine, Barry Windsor-Smith. The "cool gimmick" was that the center double-page spread of each of the "origin sections" was a piece of "the largest comic panel in history"... once all ten parts were accumulated, you could lay them side-by-side on the floor to see the last panel of the origin story! What an awesome concept. I remember puzzling over each section as the monthly comic appeared, and only finally getting it when the last piece fell into place. Here it is (SPOILER ALERT!):



Pretty cool, huh? Guess you'll have to go read it to see what all the fuss was about!

My Irish buddy is so much cooler than me

We recently had the pleasure of putting up (with?) old friends of mine who currently reside in Dublin, Ireland (Hi Ciaran, Martina, Kyle and Aran!) One of the things that struck me after having not seen them for 12 years or so was how much they haven't changed. They are still hip, smart, cool, etc., while I seemed to have become mired in soft middle age. Case in point, Ciaran's awesome tattoo:


(That's a Ralph Steadman rendering of Hunter S Thompson as Dr. Gonzo, with the inscription "HST/RIP".)

That's completely cool, and just the kind of thing I'd like to think I would get, if I got a tattoo.

And then there's the piercing, but that's a story for another day.

(Of course it was great to see the Dubliners... the time flew so quickly we just may have to visit them in a year or two!)

Superman's Canadian Heritage?

Okay... so Superman's not Canadian, but one half of the famous pair that created him was from Toronto, and that creator's sur name, much like Eisner's, was adopted to address the award for Canadian accomplishments in the field of comics. Of course, I'm talking about Joe Shuster!

The child of poor Jewish immigrants, Shuster worked as a youngster as a newspaper boy for the Toronto Daily Star and in his spare time devoted himself to his favourite hobby of sketching. At the age of ten he moved to Cleveland, Ohio, met a fellow student at Glenville High School by the name of Jerry Siegel, and the pair began collaborating together on a science fiction fanzine. Years later, they began working for National Publications on a book called New Fun, created some original characters like the musketeer swashbuckler "Henri Duval" and the supernatural crime-fighter strip Doctor Occult, both of which debuted in the October 1935 issue of New Fun #6. From here they kept re-tooling their original comic proposal of a "strong man in tights", who was originally dismissed, but fortunately after a few revisions, National editor, Vin Sullivan, chose it as the cover feature for National's Action Comics #1 which hit in June 1938. And well the rest is comic book history...

If you'd like to know more about this early part of the genesis of the granddaddy of all super-heroes I recommend the new all-ages picture book from Random House, Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman!

Written by Marc Tyler Nobleman and illustrated by Ross MacDonald, this book tells "the true story of the events leading up to two teenagers' creation of a character that would change the course of popular culture".

Now to get back to that part about Superman's Canadian heritage? This is the commercial about Shuster from Canada's Heritage Commercial Series. I used to see this all the time on TV, and while it's been argued that it is a little off in its portrayal of events, I personally enjoyed seeing it each time I'd catch it during some show. As an American living in Canada for a time, these commercials taught me a lot of interesting tidbits about figures and events in Canada's history. The one about the Halifax Explosion was of particular interest to me.

So check out the commercial, and definitely take a look at Boys of Steel. It's a beautiful book, and it's in stock now!

Holy Gotham Guest Stars!

A big thing I love about working at a comic shop is the conversations that occur during the course of a day, and over the weekend I got into a discussion with a guy about fun character crossovers, like Doc Savage showing up in Marvel Two-in-One with The Thing. Another fun crossover mentioned was a very interesting encounter of characters in the sixties Batman TV show, when a certain crime fighter on special assignment from the Daily Sentinel shows up with is partner in Gotham.



How many folks out there remember or have seen this one? They also meet again under much different circumstances a few episodes later.

Fun stuff...

What do 70 ESSENTIAL GODZILLAs look like?


That was the question that struck Manager Joe and I the other day at the Mechanicsburg store. We had just received our shipment of SEVENTY copies of THE ESSENTIAL GODZILLA, a collected edition of every single Marvel GODZILLA comic from the 1970s in a special deal. (It's a great collection and it's ONLY FIVE DOLLARS Bucko, so get yours while they last! During a lull in traffic, we decided to see if we could lay them all end-to-end the length of the store. Here is the result of our experiment:


That's what 70 copies of THE ESSENTIAL GODZILLA look like! And they're only FIVE DOLLARS a piece!

20 Questions with a Comix Connection Counter Monkey


1.) What's your name?
William Charles Wahl

2.) Any nicknames, codenames, etc?
Der Obergruppensturmbahncomicfuhrer, Spot. Think about it.

3.) Store of Operations?
On Earth-Bill, Comix Connection - Key Largo

4.) Favorite thing to do on a day off?
Play the violin with my feet while I do Final Order Cut-Offs, sleep the sleep of the dead.

5.) Any hidden talents or uncanny abilities?
I have the proportionate power of a normal human being. I can hear the tape-ripping sound of someone opening the bag of a back-issue comic book in a thunderstorm at a Van Halen concert at 100 feet.

6.) If you could live off only one food or beverage what would it be?
Shrimp. Duh. What's wrong with you people? Shrimp is the best food EVER.

7.) Favorite kind of Pop Tarts?
None. Aren't Pop Tarts just sugar-sweetened building materials? I mean, you could probably build an adobe poptart house if you had like 30,000 of them, right? Sounds like a project. Readers, send your photos!

8.) Favorite monster?
The Creature From the Id, FORBIDDEN PLANET.

9.) Favorite fictional character?
Dr. Gonzo

10.) Top five favorite video games?
Firepower (pinball, played vs. Ned at Giacomo's), Pong, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Wii Bowling

11.) Top five favorite bands?
Iggy & the Stooges, The Ramones, Bauhaus/Tones On Tail/Love and Rockets, The Clash, The Cramps

12.) Top five favorite television shows?
Batman (1960's), Star Trek (original, viewed in reruns in the '70s), Monty Python's Flying Circus (viewed in reruns on PBS in the '70s!), The Prisoner, Twin Peaks.

13.) Top five favorite films?
The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Dr. Strangelove, Network, Dawn of the Dead (1978), True Stories, Repo Man,

14.) Top five books you read that were not in comic book form?
Best Supernatural Stories of H.P. Lovecraft - Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail 1972 - Hunter S. Thompson, The Making of the Atom Bomb - Richard Rhodes, Guns, Germs and Steel - Jared Diamond, the instruction manual to my digital camera- it's like reading War and Peace in twelve languages!

15.) Top five favorite comic books?
Love and Rockets, Mister X, Black Terror, Hate, Eightball,

16.) What canceled or finished comic book series should be revived?
None. They died for a reason - no readers. OK, I lied. I'd like to see more "Bob the Alien" from the old Dark Horse Presents. And Xenozoic Tales by the incomparable Mark Schultz. And more Rocketeer by Dave Stevens. Ah, forget it. I could fill a page with just stuff I'd like to see still coming out...

17.) When and how did you discover comic books?
When I was a child and we visited my Grandpop in Philly I used to sleep on the couch in the living room. On Sunday mornings at 6AM, he would drop the Sunday funnies section on the table beside me so that when I woke up it would be there for me to read. And then he would make breakfast, so that was the smell I awoke to - Grandpop's breakfast. With a big city's Sunday comic section within reach. Comic books? Well, I remember buying a four-inch stack of British DANDYs and BEANOs at the elementary school's May Festival in 3rd grade, and my uncle had a big stack of MAD magazines that he kept in his closet that he told me not to touch, so of course I snuck off and read them.

18.) What appeals to you about comic books as an art form?
The unique experience of reading words and seeing pictures that an artist has chosen from his imagination, in a perfect, non-duplictable combination.

19.) Earliest memory of Comix Connection?
I have no early memories of Comix Connection. OK, one of my earliest memories is of the end-of-night receipts for the Very First Day We Were Open At The Delco Plaza... it was something like $15.85. I know I saved that bit of paperwork somewhere.

20.) Anything interesting we should know about you?
I collect antique electric fans. I am an accomplished gleeker. I have a birthmark RIGHT ON MY FACE.
