Accent Fingers

It's Friday morning, so why not dive into the weekend arm in arm with Tucker Stone and friends? This week it's new comics (natch) and the excellent duo of Garfield and Rob Liefeld.

Elsewhere online:

I didn't know that the band The Teardrop Explodes took its name from a line of dialogue in a Daredevil comic. Here the band, the Daredevil team and others remember how it all happened.

Another new one -- a Tumblr devoted to comics Australia and New Zealand -- great Stanley Pitt work here.

Sean Witzke and Matt Seneca continue their duet on the series Solo, this time it's Paul Pope's turn.

Should you need more Tucker in your life, along with Jog and Mautner, here's the latest Comic Books Are Burning in Hell. It's mostly about Garth Ennis, so you can expect a high degree of passion.

Hey, Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez are going on a proper tour in September. Good news.

Finally, as proof of my continued cliquishness and editorial malfeasance, I present you with the news that erstwhile columnist Frank Santoro is having yet another comic book sale tomorrow, this time with sales assistants Ben Marra, Jonny Negron, Lala Albert and Aidan Koch.

Enjoy the break.

  1. Loved that SOLO series from DC, wish they would have continued it with older DC regulars like Brian Bolland or Joe Kubert. I remember hitting 3 comic stores to track down the Allred issue. Good stuff.

    That issue of Solo written and drawn by Brendan Mccarthy is one of my favorite comics of all time.

  3. I’m partial to the Richard Corben issue myself. Who would have thought he would ever draw the spectre?

    I liked this issue a lot also and it is the more recent example of Corben coloring his own stories. The font he made of his lettering is ridiculous, though. Also I really liked the first story in the Jordi Bernet issue, written by John Arcudi. They should have continued that series, but of course, they didn’t.
