A tribute to Dave Cockrum on his birthday

I've been thinking about Dave Cockrum's work a lot lately. A few days ago I put together a blog post about how I became a fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Of course I had to discuss Dave's contributions to the series, which were a major factor in drawing me in. And then today I realized that this ...

Re: Nightcrawler Returns -- Inhumanity by Matt Fraction

As long as this is "happy, swashbuckling Nightcrawler" who is back, rather than "brooding, melancholy Nightcrawler," then I am happy.

The return of the Futurians

This was a pleasant surprise. I was at Midtown Comics last week. Among the independent titles, I was surprised to see issue three of a miniseries entitled Avatar of the Futurians. Yes, that's right, as Dave Cockrum's Futurians. It was written & penciled by a gent named David Miller. I had no idea th...

Is there room for a Legion of Super-Heroes discussion?

I was never really a fan of the LSH until I saw Dave Cockrum's work on it. I picked up Legion Archives vol 10 specifically for Dave's artwork, and ended up really liking the characters & stories, too.

MAGNETO Testament

I wasn't sure if I was going to pick this up or not, since I had no idea if it would be any good. But after reading Paty's comments, yep, I'll either buy the issues, or the inevitable TPB. I always wished Marvel would just come right out and say Magneto was Jewish. Some people argued that having a J...

Dave Cockrum has passed away

I am so sorry to hear about this. Dave Cockrum was such a brilliant artist and an incredibly nice guy. I count myself fortunate to have met him on a few occasions and obtained some nice artwork by him. He was one of my all-time favorite comic book creators. My condolences to Paty and to the rest of ...

Sounds like you had a really great time. I was lucky enough to meet the Cockrums a few times back when they lived in the NY area, and they would do appearances at comic shops in Westchester now & then. That type of setting definitely gave fans such as myself more of an opportunity to chat with them ...
