Not sure what to read? There’s always more Moore! We continue our tour of Alan Moore’s ABC imprint with Promethea, his take on a female warrior goddess hero.

But if you’re expecting Wonder Woman, think again.

In classic Moore fashion, we end up with a story that pushes the boundaries of the imagination with artwork by J.H. Williams III bringing that vision to life.

Join us as we read Promethea #1-6.

Next time: Marvel Knights 1-6

The Tick has had one heck of a ride. From black and white indie comics, to Saturday morning cartoon, to prime time sitcom, to a new streaming series on Amazon.

We thought we’d check out how it all started with Ben Edlund’s first 6 issues from 1988. Little did we expect to find parodies of Superman and Elektra, wise-cracking minions, and French bread.

Next Time: Promethea by Alan Moore

It’s a tale as old as time. Or the 60’s, really.

Spider-Man’s villains all team up to fight him. They call themselves the Sinister Six because it sounds cool (alliteration is ALWAYS cool). Then they have a million reunions because Spider-Man’s not dead yet and why not?

We read the first two incarnations of the SS in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 and then in issues #334-339.

Come for the rogues’ gallery, stay for Aunt May and Doc Ock flirting.

Next time: The Tick!
