Welcome to The Comics Journal's #5 Tackiest Site on the Web! In the June 1999 issue of TCJ (#213), writer Jeremy Pinkham began a column (monthly? bi-monthly? I dunno, I don't read TCJ) called "28.8 Panels per Second: A Field Guide to Electronic Comics Culture". After a lot of pretentiously big words that TCJ is famous for using, Pinkham's column trashes my site and four others as "the five tackiest comics-related sites on the Internet, as selected in the clutches of a particularly rotten mood." Here's what he has to say about this page, and links to the other four pages. "This page takes the word "fanboy" to a new level of meaning. Let's trash it."
Hey! I've got a Guest Book now, courtesy of LPage! Check it out! Please
sign my guestbook, or you can
just take a look.
I've had a number of international visitors as well as from across the USA. Here's where they are coming from.
What we have here is a veritable plethora of comic stuff. I tried to stay away from doing pages that you'll
see on other people's sites; no sense in duplication of effort. Instead, I'm providing a few choice,
quality, home-grown pages that if you don't find interesting, you'll hopefully find them unique.
That said, here's what we have in stock today:
Checklists for artists Bill Sienkiewicz and Mike Grell
Bill Sienkiewicz's "Death" of the Endless (the gold chase card)
Mike Grell's "Green Arrow"
Superboy meets the Legion of Super-Heroes
Bits O' Legionnaire Business
Journey to the 30th Century to see the Legion of Super-Heroes:
Currently my Legion page contains:
The infamous Anal Retentive Checklists
The Legion Drinking Game
A Tyroc appreciation page
The DC Superstars page (with LSH quiz)
The official Legion ages page
A comprehensive list of other Legion-related pages
Interlac fonts for Windows and Mac formats
Cancelled Comic Cavalcade
If you were reading comics in 1978, you'll remember the "DC Implosion." DC cut a lot of titles right
as they were getting ready to expand their lines, adding both titles and backup features. A bunch of
material was ready to go to the printers, but then the axe fell. The result was the two volume
Cancelled Comic Cavalcade, which was merely the stories photocopied onto
8-1/2 x 11 pages and bound. Only 35 copies were "printed", but thanks to the magic of the photocopy
machine, these babies can be copied and bootlegged. Good thing, too, since an original runs over
$1200 in the Overstreet Guide. Here is the long awaited CCC index, featuring a listing of all the
stories, creators, and what the darn thing was about. Some of the stories were printed elsewhere;
I cover that, too.
The Comic Convention Survival
Guide was put together by a number of people on
the rec.arts.comics.misc newsgroup; in particular, Matt High of Antarctic Press got the ball rolling and
provided most of the info. Here's a list of helpful hints to make your con experience more enjoyable.
San Diego Comic Con 1995 report
I went to the 1995 San Diego Comic Con for the first time, where I met a large
number of people from the rec.arts.comics.* and Compuserve groups. I had a blast, and here's my
The Grand Comics Database
Help out with the Grand
Comics Database project. The GCD is a grass-roots effort to index every comic ever published,
and make that database available to the public. This index is planned to be searchable on just
about any single key or combination of keys: title, character, writer, artist, editor, colorist,
letterer, feature, etc. Check out this site for some examples, or ask me at the address at the
bottom of the page if you're interested in helping.
