Comics A-Go-Go! Stuff

Comics for Sale or Trade Comics Reviews

We were first introduced to comic books as a serious entertainment source in our first year of college. One of our dorm mates had a fairly substantial collection in his closet which he pulled out de vez en cuando and several of us became quite interested in the experience. This was at a point when the 1980’s independent press was at full strength. It was also a transitional time for the Big 2, particularly for DC. Heroes were brought low, villains became more than two-dimensional, the writing was edgier, the art exploratory. In short, it was a great time to enter the world of wonder.

Our very first comic book was Mage: The Hero Discovered #7. Why? Because our pal had bought a handful of the series and after looking at the artwork and reading the story, we were hooked. The second book we bought? Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. The bright, deep colors of a 4-color press are very different than the newsprint formats so familiar to the casual comic reader up through the 1970’s. With Baxter paper and a slicker look, many of the books in this era stood out and showed us where the genre could go.

Mage: The Hero Discovered was an amazingly good read. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns blew us away. For a newly indoctrinated aficionado, there weren’t many better places to start.

    1. Thank you, Tiny Tim. We appreciate the proper spelling of the word “definitely” in your comment. Other readers take note: “irregardless” of whether you “could care less”, our “analyzation” of poor grammar indicates [“that” – could go either way] our fellow Americans would rather be sloppy “then” to respect our language. That makes us sad. It’s hard enough to stomach things like “He come up to the house to unthaw the trout,” or “I axe you over and over again why you disrespect me when I think different?” or “How am I? I’m good,” or “Our personal director thinks the staff are bad people because our companies employees they don’t care about it’s future.” Why are we such snobs? Especially when we love incomplete sentences like this one? Because the proper usage of language matters, even if it is intentionally mangled for a specific effect (so you see, the Comics A-Go-Go! staff knows what it is doing when its members create jarring statements with rough grammar). Besides, as we’ve stated repeatedly, this is our blog and hypocritically or not we do what we want. ‘Nuf sed.
