RETRO REVIEW: Fantastic Four #118 (January 1972)

Or – “What Happens AFTER An Iconic Run…” Legendary creators Jack Kirby and Stan Lee did a notorious one-hundred-four issue run on Fantastic Four in the Silver Age, a feat that was almost as amazing then as it is now.  Of course, the creators who picked up the reins with #105 had a pretty tough row to hoe, and few of the events of the immediate-post Kirby run have long-lasting ramifications.  Of course, depending on your definition of “ramifications” (and possibly your definition of “long-lasting”) there are some interesting bits and pieces in these less-iconic seventies comics…  Your Major Spoilers…

Semi-Homemade Costumes for Comic-Con

If you are planning to head to San Diego for Comic-Con 2012, you will need a costume that sets you apart from the crowd. Store-bought costumes are an easy choice, but chances are that at least one other attendee will be wearing the exact same outfit. You may think about making your own costume at home, but crafting a suitable costume from scratch can be a daunting and time-consuming task.
