Two Staple Gold: Just A Pilgrim

Two Staple Gold: Just A Pilgrim

It's Super Blog Team-Up season! Not familiar? It's a great community of comic book bloggers that get together annually and write about a shared topic. This year is all about: REDEMPTION.  I'll get back to that in a bit and the roll call of my fellow Super Bloggers...

Two Staple Gold: Namor The Sub Mariner #1

Two Staple Gold: Namor The Sub Mariner #1

I'm a wee bit afraid of the ocean. There is no official phobia involved, just my sense of logic. You see, there are too many critters that can get you. Simple as that. I'm not keen on stepping foot into the world's largest death trap just for fun. I'll let others get...

Two Staple Gold: Brave and the Bold #148

Two Staple Gold: Brave and the Bold #148

If anyone else is hungover from last night's company Christmas party, please raise your hand. Only me? Ah well, it's all good. I may have landed myself on the naughty list for my ill advised shenanigans with the xerox machine but I'm still chock full of holiday cheer!...

Two Staple Gold: Superman #349

Two Staple Gold: Superman #349

Superman, the world's greatest superhero. Without Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's creation all of us may have lived crummy lives. Other powered beings have appeared in literature throughout the ages but Superman was a fucking rock star. Creating the model which all our...

Two Staple Gold: The Flash #163

Two Staple Gold: The Flash #163

  "I like weird and wacky!" No, this isn't the password to get into the fetish club downtown. Ahem... I think. Rather, It's a statement that tends to be uttered at least once by every fan of the Silver Age. It's also remarkably true. The majority of stories...

Two Staple Gold: Frankenstein Monster #8

Two Staple Gold: Frankenstein Monster #8

Halloween is here! Can't say I'm much of the celebrating type considering my childhood was spent decked out in flammable plastic...and handing out candy to other kids. All dressed up with nowhere to go. Thanks Mom, for making an 8 year old man the door. Don't feel...

Two Staple Gold: Showcase #55

Two Staple Gold: Showcase #55

Solomon Grundy born on a Monday, died on a Saturday. Every article written about him starts with the nursery rhyme. It's officially part of his origin and immediately recognized by fans. That's all fine and dandy but I prefer to think of him as the villain who made...

Two Staple Gold: House of Mystery #148

Two Staple Gold: House of Mystery #148

  House of Mystery has long been associated with horror but it actually featured superhero stories from #143- #173. Martian Manhunter aka J'onn J'onzz was the main attraction for the majority of that span. He's always confused me a little. Not the character...

Two Staple Gold: Marvel Two in One #96

Two Staple Gold: Marvel Two in One #96

Who doesn't have a soft spot for Marvel's hero made of rock? I'm talking of course about the Thing. Since 1961, Ben Grimm has been one of the cornerstones at the House of Ideas as a member of the Fantastic Four. Personally, in my younger years I was enthralled with...

Two Staple Gold: Adventures of Bayou Billy #1

Two Staple Gold: Adventures of Bayou Billy #1

  Video Game properties don't seem to translate well to other media. Full disclosure, I'm the furthest thing from a "Gamer" but I say this only because there has never been a single movie based on a game I've found enjoyable. As a kid in the 80's I was addicted...

Two Staple Gold: J.L.A. #70

Two Staple Gold: J.L.A. #70

There's just something about the Creeper I like. I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's the colors and offbeat costume or my affection for those on the B-List. What I can say for certain, there's not too many great Creeper stories out there. I've enjoyed some...

Two Staple Gold: Savage Sub-Mariner #72

Two Staple Gold: Savage Sub-Mariner #72

  So here's the scoop, I'm a massive Swamp Thing fan. For my money, all other monsters pale in comparison. Anytime a cruddy creature pops up in a comic with "Thing" as part of it's moniker it piques my interest. As far as the titular character, other than John...
