So, I recently discovered The Newsstand feature at Mike’s Amazing World. If you’re not familiar with the site, you pick the month and year, and Mike spits out all the comics published that month. It’s the ultimate nostalgia bomb. Lacking anything more important to say, today we’re setting the coordinates for March 1987 (a randomly chosen destination, for sure), when I was 17 years old. Let’s take a look at the edited highlights of what comics I bought that month.
Last week, I talked about Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) being held this past Saturday, May 7. I managed to get to three different stores on that day, and I noticed a few things I wanted to talk about. Also, friends attended other locations, and they also gave me things to talk about as well!
Have I got a treat for you in the latest episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast! I talk with writer/artist Bryan Talbot about Grandville: Noel, the latest in a series of hardcover graphic novels made available here in the States by Dark Horse. The books follow Inspector LeBrock, a badger with the detective skills of Sherlock Holmes. We talk about the series including the characters and how long it will continue. Then Mr. Talbot discusses his other projects as well, so you won’t want to miss it!
