Sunday Classics: Black Panther #1 (1977): The Brass Frog is Yours!

Black Panther #1 (1977)

Join us this Sunday morning for a look back at Black Panther #1 from 1977! In his very first ongoing series, Black Panther comes to life with Jack Kirby, Mike Royer and Dave Hunt at the helm for a story that many are now likely to find a bit strange thanks to a Brass Frog and its impact on time, but captures the essence of how fun comics of this era were.


Swamp Thing: New Roots #6: Building a New World

Swamp Thing: New Roots #6

This is a series that goes right to the heart of what Swamp Thing stands for, and while the story can feel predictable, rest assured the end we find in Swamp Thing: New Roots #6 (Russell, Santucci, Kalisz, Sharpe) is something you won’t see coming. It’s a wonderful twist that will have you thinking about this book long after reading it. 


Ivar, Timewalker #1-4: Come with Me if You Want to Make History

Ivar, Timewalker #1-4

Originality meets hilarious sci-fi filled action in a story that questions not just time itself, but also your very own place in history! There is plenty of humor, but there is also tragedy, discovery, disappointment, and the hope for something greater that all help to give Ivar, Timewalker #1-4 (Van Lente, Henry, Reber, Sharpe) a sense of uniqueness.


Teen Titans #41: The Power Within (Is as Cheesy as it Sounds)

Teen Titans #41 (Glass, Thompson, Pansica, Ferreira, Maiolo) shows the writers of this book running on fumes, as “Djinn Wars” comes to a jaw-droppingly easy conclusion and the characters keep circling back to their inherent mistrust of Robin, who continues to be stuck in neutral right now as well, unable to admit his mistakes. A once-great book that has apparently run out of ideas, the art is stellar, but that’s about it.
