Love Hurts: ‘Do I Want To See Vic When He Comes Out Of Prison — Or Forget I Ever Knew Him?’

bars01

Ah, romance! As Valentine's Day lingers on the horizon, it is once again time to turn our thoughts -- and our hearts -- to love. Or at least, the truly bizarre and occasionally downright mind-boggling version of love that appears in that most dubious of genres, the Romance Comic. Because really, you can't have enough s

Bizarro Back Issues: Kamen Rider Takes On Bat Man (Not That One) (1971)

kamen01

One of the best things to happen in comics in 2012 was the digital release of a bunch of titles by Shotaro Ishinomori, the creator of Kikaider, that Legend of Zelda comic that ran in Nintendo Power, and a bunch of other comics about monsters getting kicked right in the face. The one that drew my attention the most was the classic Kamen Rider, and while our own Dylan Todd wrote about how great these comics are, I tho

Bizarro Back Issues: The Strange Saga Of The Joker’s Daughter (1976)

jd01

If you're keeping up with current issues of Batman, then you already know that the "Death of the Family" event is based around the Joker getting the idea that Batman's "family" of sidekicks and assorted hangers-on is making him weak. As a re

Bizarro Back Issues: Reltih, The Reverse Hitler (1944)

reltih01

A few weeks ago, I asked my pal Andrew Weiss if he knew of any Captain Marvel stories that involved boxing that I could use for my annual pugilism-themed December 26th post, and he pointed me to Captain Marvel Adventures #35 and the story of Radar, the International Policeman. Under ordinary circumstances, the story of Billy Batson's alter-ego get

Bizarro Back Issues: Batman’s Deadly New Year! (1972)

newyear01

Last week, one of the questions that came in for my Ask Chris column came from someone who was curious about how Batman celebrated New Year's Eve, and really, that's a pretty interesting question. I mean, we have plenty of comics, cartoons and even one goofy-ass movie about ho

Bizarro Back Issues: Boxing Day With Captain Marvel! (1944)

boxing01

Christmas has once again come and gone, but before the holidays are over, there's one last celebration we all have to get through before New Year's rolls around and puts a cap on it: Boxing Day! The only problem is that the True Meaning of Boxing Day has been explored in roughly zero movies (as opposed to the True Meaning of Christmas, which has been pretty thoroughly dealt with in about 4,926), so I always just tend to think of it as a wintry celebration of people punching each other in the face.

I always try to cele

Bizarro Back Issues: Christmas With The Punisher Is Not Exactly Jolly (1995)

punisher01

When it comes to Christmas comics, you can't really get around the fact that some characters lend themselves to holiday stories a little easier than others. Superman is essentially built around peace on Earth and goodwill to men anyway, Batman's themes of family and sacrifice are perfectly suited for a bittersweet Christmas tale, and Spider-Man shopping for presents is almost always a good recipe for seasonal comedy.

And

Bizarro Back Issues: Donald Duck In ‘A Christmas For Shacktown’ (1952)

If you're a regular ComicsAlliance reader, then you already know that I'm pretty fascinated by the weirder comics of the past, but at Christmastime, my thoughts turn to more heartwarming tales. As s

Bizarro Back Issues: Happy Thanksgiving From Herbie Popnecker (1966)

herbie-lede

Unlike Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving is a holiday that just doesn't have a whole lot of comics built around it. You'd think it'd be a natural setting for drama -- the Punisher attempting to murder a turkey even though it received a presidential pardon is a tale I've been wanting to tell for years -- but for some reason, nobody seems to get up to a whole lot of hijinx.

Except, that is, for

The Golden Age Bakery Recreates An Entire ‘Stardust The Super Wizard’ Story On Delicious Cookies

stardustcookie01

A while back, I wrote about a Kickstarter for the Golden Age Bakery, a business in Chapel Hill built around making edible versions of classic Golden Age comics by printing them on cookies. I can think of no better cause.

In that article, I mentioned that I'd really like to see a set of cookies featuring
