Uncanny X-men #160
Chris Claremont
Brent Anderson

Since the New Mutants are going to have a likely horrible movie coming out I decided to share my love for the original comic book New Mutants by doing some character origin series. This one is Magik also known as Illyana Rasputin. This is an absolutely stacked and classic 80's X-men book. Awesome story and great start to the character Magik!

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Phantom Blood
Chapter 12

We return to a galaxy far, far away to Star Wars #71. The last issue was okay but, can Jo Duffy improve on her storytelling in the next issue? Can someone please explain to me why they say Artoo-Deetoo instead of R2-D2?

Blueberry 1 - Chihuahua Pearl
Jean-Michel Charlier
Jean "Moebius" Giraud

Today we take a look at a real special comic, a French comic drawn by Moebius! I really liked the art in the silver surfer parable special by Stan Lee and Moebius so I looked far and wide for a European style graphic novel done by the famous Frenchman. Honestly, I'm pretty impressed and entertained.

You can find English translations of the Blueberry graphic novels by Epic (Marvel Imprint) on Ebay and sometimes Amazon. If you can read French you can get all of the graphic novels online.

Uncanny X-men #120
Chris Claremont
John Byrne

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone, today we take a look at a classic X-men comic which includes the first appearance of Alpha Flight, the Canadian Superhero team created by John Byrne!

Green Lantern #76

In honor of the last awful Star Wars film released in the sequel Trilogy I do a classic Marvel Star Wars comic from the 80's. I am normally not a consumer of non-OT material but, I'll give this a shot.

The New Mutants #4
