The Greatest Comic Book Covers #1 - Action Comics #1

ActionComicsCar
Geek Genie kicks off its new regular series looking at the Greatest Comic Book Covers with the one that started it all...Action Comics #1!.   It's an iconic image for an iconic figure. Superman crashed through the front cover of Action Comics #1 in June 1938 and forever changed the comic book landscape. It ushered in the age of the superhero and laid the foundations of a pop-culture war between DC Comics and eventual rival Marvel Comics .  Joe Schuster's iconic cover captured the sense of wonder, awe and terror as a yet unknown Superman delivers a fantastic display of power. The sheer rawness of the cover, with no words or text other than the cover title, added to its power. Even the title, Action Comics , leaped from the page in a new, bold and exciting style that has now become synonomous with the character.        ...

Top10GN1
By IzzyLFC Comic book charachters are now more popular today than ever before, thanks to Film and TV as well as the comic industry's best creators. However it all started with 20-page magazines starring iconic characters like Superman, Batman, Captain America and Spiderman. I'm looking at the greatest graphic novels ever to be written. Do you agree?!   10. Crisis on Infinite Earths – Marv Wolfman                             Probably DC comics' biggest event ever, Marv Wolfman creates a masterpiece with Crisis. Featuring the first appearance of probably the most powerful villain ever, The Anti-Monitor, this 12-issue series was a crisis since two of DC's most loved characters died protecting not only the world or even the universe but the multiverse. Both Supergirl and Flash die protecting the ones they love. 9. Blackest Night – Geoff Johns    ...

Geek Genie caught up with author Jason Powell on the release of his book "The Best There is at What He does - Examining Chris Claremont's X-Men" released by Sequart.   GG: Hi Jason. Congratulations on the release of your book! What made you want to write a book specifically about the Claremont run in X-Men? JP: Well I guess that my love of the X-Men is really tied to that particular run by Chris Claremont. I was lucky enough to be given a collection of comic books from my Uncle which had a good mix of Marvel comics (although he refused to give up his Spidey books!). I discovered the X-Men at the same time that the X-Men cartoon series was also taking off and so I really wanted to find out more about these chracters.   GG: Claremont's run is legendary for its soap opera and length of...

Don Heck - A Tribute

Don Heck - A Tribute
7df3865eea5deb27338215245ccddfb9
I grew up in a small town, and while not quite as small as the fictional “Mayberry” of Andy Griffith fame… one of the main hangouts of my dad and his pals was the Barber Shop. It was called “Harry’s”, and if not for a small wicker basket tucked into a corner, it would have been the last place in the world I’d have liked to hang out. Now don’t get me wrong, my father and his cronies did have some funny stories to tell about glory days, but you can only get a kick out of them so many times before you’re relegated to a polite smile. Though that corner was polluted with age old hair clippings never swept up… it was my salvation. The wicker basket had all sorts of literature inside. Time, Look, Life, years old local papers, and the like. Nothing for a curious little boy...
