It’s a rough comics week for me. Several of my favorite characters are losing their ongoing titles, including Hawkman. But the part that leaves me saddest is the final Geoff Johns story in Green Lantern #20.
After this week’s Major Spoilers Podcast, I was taken by how much I loved all the adventures of Calvin & Hobbes, to the point where it’s fighting with The Far Side and Bloom County for the top slot of ‘Most Loved Comic Strip Tale Of All Time.’ Then I remember the ‘Penguin Lust’ arc and the long strip of the brick wall outside the White House being dismantled in Doonesbury, or even the point back when Garfield was funny, and I have to go and read those trade paperbacks again, by which point I forget the question, but remember all the lyrics to “I’m A Boinger.”
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still can’t believe how much of ‘Bloom County’ seemingly escaped the MSP team, asking: What’s the best comic STRIP of all time?
When an imaginative orphan befriends a giant in the forest there is no telling what could happen next, but teaming up as crime-fighting superheroes was a decision that most children would take. But all is not what it seems in the forest! Your Major Spoilers review of Myth #2 is just after the jump!

Morgana removes her final obstacle to the throne of Camelot – Merlin and his magic – and sets about her ultimate siege of the kingdom in “The Diamond of the Day, Part 1,” which airs Friday, May 24, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
The opening stanza to the two-part MERLIN series finale strikes some ominous chords.
With digital very likely to be a major player for comics in the future, many comics companies are getting an early start on the entire “revolution” that may see us downloading issues from an FTP site rather than going to our local comics shops … sooner than we think!
When I was younger, I was always a little bit worried about Batman, leaping and bounding across the rooftops of Gotham City in what seemed to be smooth-soled Monkee boots. As comic audiences and I aged, Batman eventually graduated to a thicker-soled combat-style boot, while Superman still rocked the Stride-Rite knee socks with the stylish divot-hem. (The loss of that design element is one of the myriad of problems with Supey’s new nanite battle-armor look, by the way.) Poor Wonder Woman only recently gave up heels (depending on the artist) but The Thorn has been wearing thigh-high stiletto streetwalker boots since 1972, while Black Canary was forced for YEARS to do martial arts flips and judo throws in corsair boots with a Cuban heel. It seems that only the Flash, with his specially ridged yellow boots, really considered the practicality and workability of his footwear, and even that has been diminished by a bunch of strange seams in the latest designs.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would enjoy some nice Chuck Taylors, if they made the things in a 14 Wide, asking: Which superhero has the most awesome footgear?
