Graphic Novels - Infinite Crisis: Part One - Infinite Crisis

As I write this, it’s actually Sunday the 5th. Today, I saw the Packers win the Super Bowl (yay), I found out that Outer Limits closed due to a fire (boo, but they did move to a different location), and I found out a good friend is going through a tough time in her life. Oh well, on to comics!

R.I.P. Dwayne McDuffie

I just found out a few minutes ago that writer Dwayne McDuffie passed away Monday evening. I have to admit, I'm still shocked. If you don't know who he is, this link should show you.

I guess I'm sad because the guy was a good writer, he was a black writer, and I've seen and read some of his stuff. From what I can tell, there aren't many of us brothers out there writing comics, so this dude was one of a kind. McDuffie also has written for such TV shows as Static Shock and Justice League Unlimited, two shows I loved to watch. He also wrote the upcoming direct to DVD adaptation of All-Star Superman, so you know I'm watching that. All in all, we lost a great writer. My prayers go out to his family.

Random Pic of the Month - Feb.

Today, i will dig into my own photo archive and see if there is anything.....random.

Ah Ha! This is from Spring Break 2009 during a trip to the Grand Canyon. On the way back, we went through Roswell, New Mexico. I have some more funny pics from there, but this is my favorite. Many thanks to Kristen Kendall for making this even funnier.

Well, we found him this way. Too much Romulan Ale.

Graphic Novels - Teen Titans/Outsiders: The Insiders

Teen Titans/Outsiders: The Insiders
Writers: Geoff Johns and Judd Winnick
Artists: Matthew Clark, Carlos D'anda, and Tony Daniel

This installment of Graphic Novels is brought to you by this dude.

Hey, all of you out there. I’m back and ready to nip this tpb in the bud. As I said above, this is a crossover between the Titans and the Outsiders (And no, not these guys. I do have to say though that any group with Patrick Swayze in it is an awesome group. WOLVERINES!!!!) . Anyway, a guide to this version of the Outsiders is HERE. This tpb contains Teen Titans #24-26 and Outsiders #24, 25, and 28. Let’s get on to the creative team:

  • Geoff Johns – Johns! We meet again.
  • Judd Winnick – The writer of the Outsiders. His writing credits include this book, Green Arrow, Justice League: Generation Lost, and Power Girl. This is also the same guy who brought back Jaso…Oh, I’ll spoil that later.
  • Matthew Clark – Clark pencils the first two Titans issues and the last Outsiders issue. I don’t know much about this dude. All I know is that it looks good.
  • Carlos D’anda – This guy pencils the first two Outsiders issues. I don’t know about this guy either.
  • Tony Daniel – Daniel does the last Titans’ issue. His artwork is real good. His credits include Teen Titans, Batman, and others. He’s also a writer, writing and doing artwork on Batman.
In a way, this crossover can be seen as a sequel to Graduation Day, which Winnick also wrote. So let's get to it!
