842a. Crotchshot

On today’s milestone 350th episode of Gutter Trash, we review Fred Van Lente & Ryan Dunlavey’s THE COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF COMICS. It’s incredibly informative, educational, and entertaining. And, Van Lente & Dunlavey create the single greatest comic character within the pages of CBHoC. So great, that my pal and Gutter Trash co-host Jason Young …

The lady person and I watched Big Hero 6 last night, and I am a bit upset I missed this in the theater. Some thoughts: Baymax and I share far too many traits. It’s weird that Disney did not play up the Marvel Comics angle. The only credit to that point is to “Man of …

Watched Captain America: Babies Taste Better (aka Snowpiercer). It was good. Not the fabulous masterpiece I was led to believe it might be. Good performances, pretty sets, but pretty much stretches credibility beyond even my own lofty ability to suspend disbelief. But whatever. I liked it enough.

388. Mr. Terrific

I kinda love this character, but even though I drew his New 52 look here, I didn’t read his New 52 book. He appeared once in Earth 2 before I dropped that series. It’s too bad. He was a great character. Fuck DC. So, because I am a 35 year old man, I spent my …

348. Batman

Finished watching all episodes of Maron last night on Netflix. I’m not really a fan of Marc Maron’s comedy, and I’ve listened to maybe three episodes of his What the Fuck podcast that I also did not enjoy, but I found his television show to be incredibly funny and at times, moving. Recommended.

341. Hulk

Watched Hamlet 2 last night. It was funny enough and the musical numbers didn’t bother me as much as I thought they might. It helps that they make sense in the context of the story, but they were repetitive and the joke of the songs got old super-fast. In fact the joke of the entire …

309. The Trickster

So I’ve been trying to keep this a secret, but I should just go ahead and announce that we are in the middle of “Flash Rogues Week” in honor of The Flash returning to television this week… Nah, I’ve been doing it because I know my friend Joe G. would get a kick out of …

271. Brother Voodoo

I don’t know a thing about Brother Voodoo. I do know that he ousted Dr. Strange as the Sorcerer Supreme once, and then called himself Doctor Voodoo. And it upset me. Just because he’s the Sorcerer Supreme didn’t mean he got a doctorate! Dr. Strange is Dr. Strange because he’s a fucking doctor! And then …

265. Deadman

I “get” the original look for Deadman. Boston Brand was a circus acrobat, so it sorta looks like that, crossed with a superhero costume. And a large “D” on his belly. For some reason. So going off that, I tried to base Deadman’s look on some Cirque Du Soliel-type outfits and makeup. Also, I wanted …

259. Electro

So one thing I’ve noticed is that I tend to really like the original costumes of the characters I’ve been redesigning (Mr. Terrific excluded). Electro is no different! I love the ridiculous oversized mask and the corny lightning suspenders and the lightning flared gloves. It’s glorious and I would gladly pay to see Amazing Spider-Man …
