DC Entertainment Pays Tribute To Stan Lee

As pop-culture fans across the world digested the news of Stan Lee's passing, DC Comics paid there own tribute to "The Man".   Given  all  his achievements in comic books, entertainment and pop culture, Stan Lee’s nickname, “The Man,” was both well earned and well deserved. From his time as a teenage assistant at then Timely Comics, through his collaborations with fellow icons like Jack Kirby ,  Steve  Ditko , John Romita Sr. and John  Buscema , plus his  tireless promotion of comic books to a mainstream audience , Lee was  in no small part  responsible for raising the profile of comic books  to make  them accessible to everyone.   “Without  Stan Lee’s  fertile and creative mind , endless energy and work ethic, comic books would have been completely different from what  we know  and enjoy  today,” said DC Publisher Dan DiDio.  “He helped to create worlds that were both...

Ancient Egyptian Hawkman

hawk1banner
  When Hawkman debuted in the pages of Flash Comics in 1939 we were introduced to Carter Hall, a man who was the reincarnation of the ancient Egyptian prince, Khufu. There have been countless additions to his story over the 79 years of his existence in comics, cartoons and live action television, but the idea that he was once a member of the ancient Egyptian royal elite has been kept relatively intact for much of his life on the page. But was any of this origin in any way drawn from real life? Is there any fact in the fiction? Like Carter Hall I'm a self-studied "armchair Egyptologist" so when it came to writing about Hawkman for Hawkman Day on November 10th, using ancient Egypt as my topic was a no-brainer. For anyone not familiar the origin begins with Carter Hall receiving a strange gift that sets him on his...

Norm Breyfogle: 1960 - 2018

9EF4551B 529F 48C8 BF1E 9502625AFE97
It was Monday 24 September when news started to trickle through comics fandom, that one of its brightest and best had passed this mortal plane. Norm Breyfogle had died at the tragically young age of 58.     If you grew up reading comics in the 1980’s, then Norm Breyfogle  was Batman. His art style perfectly captured the mystery and suspense of the Dark Knight, whilst giving life to his flowing cape and to Gotham City itself.  His now legendary run on the character spanned 6 years across Detective Comics , Batman and Batman: Shadow Of The Bat as well as numerous one shots. Breyfogle, along with long time Batman collaborator Alan Grant, oversaw many key landmarks in the history of the Batman mythos. New characters like the Ventriloquist , the  Ratcatcher , Jeremiah Arkham and Mr Zsasz  were introduced which added to the Caped Crusaders rich history. None more so, than the introduction of Timothy...

Hawkman: Still Flying After Seventy-Eight Years


Revelation often comes with a thunderclap, and forces one to take notice. Sometimes it comes quietly, during a quiet afternoon, with a casual view out the window, a small bird, and a tiny twig. Whether it starts with a loud shout or a quiet flutter, a revelation can become something that grabs hold and never lets go. Starting with Gardner Fox’s inspiration in the late 1930s, a character quietly came into existence and even after seventy-eight years, with the amazing creativity and talents of many writers and artists, it still thrives to this day. Gardner Fox has told the story of how he was sitting in his workplace and looking out the window when he noticed a small bird fly by, pick up a twig and fly off. This was the inspiration for the hero we know as Hawkman. When Hawkman was created, there’s no telling how Gardner Fox expected...

The Top 10 Graphic Novels of all Time!

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    ...
