The most important thing about this fascinating and diverse mythology isn't whether or not it's 'real', it's what it says about modern culture. I've been researching this title since I was a child, nervously turning over the pages of 'real life UFO' books. -- Paul Cornell

 As you may may have seen, a number of my EC posts over the last couple of years have been in black and white. I've been using pages from Fantagraphic's "EC Comics Library" which are in effect artist-based collections in black and white. You can view them on Comixology here.

Conversely, Dark Horse has been putting out their own series of EC reprints. These versions are digitally recolored and are published in chronological order. There are some here.

I will probably continue to use Fantagraphics' versions for the time being just because I already have them in my collection but I was wondering which versions you would prefer to see if I was able to pick from both.

As Groo roams from town to town, wreaking his usual havoc, he runs into his beloved Granny Groo, who raised him from an inept young toddler to an even less-ept older idiot. Can she use Groo in a profitable scheme? Well, what do you think? From Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier, with Stan Sakai and Tom Luth!"

"There’s also a lot of Uncanny X-Men to Jason [Aaron]’s Wolverine & The X-men. Good guys and bad guys, each telling their own story, each readable by themselves, each feeding into one another." - Kieron Gillen on collaborating with the main Star Wars title

After all the hype and worries, MARVEL vs. Capcom is back with MARVEL vs. Capcom: Infinite! Has anyone here had a chance to play the game yet? If so, what do you think of said game so far?

"Each month of this yearlong series, Groo and his faithful pooch, Rufferto, encounter a different acquaintance--or enemy--with the usual dire consequences! In #1, Groo crosses paths with Captain Ahax, the seaman with the world record for most ships sunk by the all-time stupidest character in comics! Brought to you by the award-winning team of Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier!"

The plot revolves around a little girl, Kayli, who is looking for her father - a member of the Groo cast (fortunately for her, it's not him). She stumbles upon Groo and they travel along while he wreaks havoc unintentionally.

Today is Stephen King's 70th birthday. To celebrate I figured I would post a few pages from Marvel's adaptation of The Stand showcasing Randall Flagg, who I think is one of King's greatest villains.

I'm a man of wealth and taste. )

The Yellow "M" (1953-54)

"Blake and Mortimer" is one of the most well-known Belgian comics series, created by Edgar P. Jacobs (1904-1987). The title is a bit of a misnomer due to phonetic issues - the titular character is, in fact, Philip Mortimer, a British scientist. He is aided by his "heterosexual life partner" (a common feature in Belgian comics at the time, and the inspiration for many a slash fanfic) capt. Francis Blake of the MI5. The book mixes detective and spy elements with fantastic concepts such as UFOs, time travel and Atlantis.

I was going to post my first contact with their books, "The Necklace Affair", but thought it best to start with the most famous story of all, "The Yellow 'M'" - the one with the most iconic cover of the series, copied by various comic book artists.



Verbosity ensues )

"Blake and Mortimer" were recently (wow, actually, about a decade ago or so) translated by Cinebook Ltd., a British company who specializes in Belgian and French comics, which gives an interesting twist to a comic set in Britain with two protagonists from Albion.
