Thru Space And Time!


I'll be the first to admit that not every issue of Alter Ego commands my attention as perhaps it ought. But I've been a faithful follower of the Roy Thomas edited magazine since its second coming as part of the Twomorrows line-up many moons ago now. But the most recent issue, scheduled to hit the stands today, does look like a sweet one. 3-D comics are just plain fun, and this looks to be a nice heaping helping of them, properly packaged with some great background info. Here's a link with more details.


And while I'm at it, I have to admit it's been a long time since I was so excited month in and month out about a comic book. Getting my mitts on the next Classic Popeye by the late great Bud Sagendorf from YOe Comics and IDW has become a real treat and reminds me of simpler times when I looked forward to all sorts of great comics.

It's a darn good week.

  1. I received a complimentary copy of Alter-Ego yesterday, on account of being mentioned in connection with an alternate version of the cover of FF #1. Unfortunately, 'though, they got the details wrong. Great mag, but they need another proofreader.

    1. That stings. Sorry they got it wrong.

      I need a proofreader too most of the time.

  2. I am enjoying the Popeye Classics comics and second your re-found joy in waiting for each month's issue. I also like many of DW's new Popeye stories - with no attempt to modernize.

    1. I'll have to confess that as much as I love the classic stuff, the new material has left me cold. I tried a few issues, but didn't get into them. Glad you're liking them though.
