Frank Miller calls Pratt “one of the true masters of comic art.” Long before the term “graphic novel” entered the popular lexicon - ten years before Will Eisner’s A Contract with God - Hugo Pratt pioneered the long-form “drawn literature” story. Corto Maltese set the standard for all adult adventure comics in Europe. By the mid-1970s, Corto was the continent’s most popular series and Hugo Pratt the world’s leading graphic novelist. Hugo Pratt’s peripatetic sailor was featured in a series of twenty-nine stories. The adventures of this modern Ulysses are set during the first thirty years of the 20th Century in such exotic locales as Pratt’s native Venice, the steppes of Manchuria, the Caribbean islands, the Danakil deserts, the Amazon forests, and the waves of the Pacific. Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn collects the first six inter-connected short stories Pratt created in France in the early 1970s: “The Secret of Tristan Bantam,” “Rendez-vous in Bahia,” “Sureshot Samba,” “The Brazilian Eagle,” “So Much for Gentlemen of Fortune,” and “The Seagull’s Fault.” CLOSE Contact us at [email protected] Call the Major Spoilers Hotline at (785) 727-1939.

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK http://majorspoilers.com/2018/06/10/major-spoilers-poll-of-the-week-best-diner-edition/ DISCUSSION THE GALACTUS TRILOGY Stan “The Man” called it the “World’s Greatest Comic Magazine,” and he wasn’t kidding. If Lee and Jack Kirby set the comics world on fire in 1961 with the debut of Fantastic Four, in 1965 they burnt it down. Letting loose an unmatched burst of rapid-fire creativity, they gave birth to the Frightful Four, the Inhumans, Galactus, the Silver Surfer and even pulled off the first super hero wedding. There’s also monster menaces galore, including Dragon Man, and out-of-this-world villains, from the shape-shifting Skrulls to the undersea warlord Attuma. But it’s not just the panel-bursting action that makes FF great. It’s the drama of a family, joined together to face all the wonders of the Marvel Universe. https://www.newsfromme.com/2003/08/22/jack-kirbys-superman/ CLOSE Contact us at [email protected] Call the Major Spoilers Hotline at (785) 727-1939.

The reign of Saddam Hussein is over. The Americans are in command, and no one is in control. Former cop turned military contractor Christopher Henry knows that better than anyone. He’s in the country to train up a new Iraqi police force, and one of his recruits has just been murdered. With civil authority in tatters and dead bodies clogging the streets, Chris is the only person in the Green Zone with any interest in finding out who killed him—and why. Chris’s inquiry brings him first to Sofia, an American-raised Iraqi who now sits on the governing council, and then to Nassir, a grizzled veteran of Saddam’s police force—and probably the last real investigator left in Baghdad. United by death but divided by conflicting loyalties, the three must help each other navigate the treacherous landscape of post-invasion Iraq in order to hunt down the killers.

Dwayne McDuffie has stated that the creation of Static was a group effort.[citation needed] Originally developed for Marvel Comics, Static would become a main staple of the Milestone line. Much of the inspiration for Static came from Marvel’s Spider-Man. When initially creating the first five characters for Milestone Comics, it was decided that Static would be created as a teenage hero who was a contemporary version of Spider-Man. Static’s civilian identity, Virgil Hawkins, was named after a black man who was denied entrance to the University of Florida’s law school in 1949.

After their mission is over, the three girls fight over Jimmy’s affections until he is picked up by Ultra-Boy and Sun-Boy who return Jimmy to his own time. With Jimmy gone the girls drop their charade, having staged the whole thing, knowing that Lucy Lane would be watching on the time monitor, in hopes that their advances on Jimmy would make her jealous enough to treat him better. When Jimmy returns to his own time, he finds that Lucy had fallen asleep, and demands a taxi home after listening to Jimmy’s “wild story”.

There they are alerted by the security system of an intruder and Superboy is shocked to find it is his old tormentor Dev-Em. Capturing Dev-Em, Superboy explains how Dev-Em was a juvenile delinquent on Krypton who was sentenced to suspended animation, survived Krypton’s destruction and was revived on 20th Century Earth. Superboy then recounts about how Dev-Em managed to trap Superboy in the Phantom Zone and pose as him to cause chaos around Earth. After returning from the Phantom Zone, Superboy was unable to stop Dev-Em who escaped into the distant future. Superboy would finish his story by explaining that the only way he was able to clear his name was with the help of his friend Chief Parker who told everyone Red Kryptonite was the “reason” for Superboy’s rampage. However, it is revealed that Dev-Em has turned over a new leaf in the 30th Century and is a member of the Inter-Stellar Counter-Intelligence Corps. However, when reporting back into the I.C.C., Dev-Em has his mission to stop interplanetary criminal Molock to Superboy. Disguising himself as Dev-Em, Superboy manages to bluff Molock with fake Gold Kryptonite, which is actually Proty II in disguise. After Superboy smashes up Molock’s operation and turns him over to the police, the Legion offers Dev-Em membership in the Legion, to which Dev-Em declines, preferring to work with the I.C.C. - via DC Wikia GIVEAWAYThanks to one of our fantastic listeners, we are giving away a copy of Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes Volume One.

Afterwards, all is explained and Dream Girl decides to leave the Legion to hone her powers, but not before seeing the other Legion members — restored to their natural ages — and learning that the episode gave Lightning Lass new powers over density, Dream Girl rechristens her Light Lass. - via DC Wikia

These alternate versions of him terrorize him before they themselves are rooted into the ground. Before the Collector can do anything else Jimmy suddenly pulls the microphone that’s been attached to him since the TV interview, and throws it at the Collector scaring the creature, thus proving to Jimmy that it’s a ruse. Jimmy had deduced that the “Collector” is really Mon-El in disguise (due to his reaction to the microphone which was made with some lead parts which used to be a weakness for Mon-El) and that the other “Jimmy’s” are really other members of the Legion of Super-Heroes (who are revealed to be Colossal Boy, Chameleon Boy and his new pet Proty II, Cosmic Boy, and Bouncing Boy.)

Adventure Comics #313 The Condemned Legionnaires! October 1963 w: Edmond Hamilton a: Curt Swan When most the female members of the Legion of Super-Heroes (and Night Girl of the Legion of Substitute Heroes) come down with the Crimson Virus, they have to be sent to a quarantine planet. The rest of the female members are hunted down by a mysterious masked villain named Satan Girl, who seems to be infecting the female Legionnaires with the virus. With the arrival of Supergirl, who is immune to the virus, the male Legion members try to learn the origins of Satan Girl. When she proves immune to Kryptonite, Lead and an anti-android weapon, the heroes are puzzled to figure out her true identity. Unable to defeat her due to her superior powers, Supergirl has the Legion go and collect the Legion of Super-Pets, as Satan Girl’s powers would not effect them. The Super-Pets manage to easily defeat Satan Girl, who is unmasked, revealing that she is really — Supergirl!? The weakened Satan Girl explains that she is the product of Red Kryptonite, which Supergirl was exposed to upon entering the 30th Century. Knowing that she had only 48 hours of life, she adopted the guise of Satan Girl and created a device that would siphon the Red Kryptonite radiation and infect females with it, in hopes that once she had rid herself of the Red Kryptonite energies she could live past the 48 hour period which Red Kryptonite effects. With her plan a failure, and the 48 hours running their course, Satan Girl merges with Supergirl. After wards, the Legion learns that Satan Girl managed to handle Green Kryptonite because she wore a lead suit. After this revelation, although they are victorious and their female members restored to normal, the Legion takes a moment to feel pity for Satan Girl, for all she wanted to do was live. - via DC Wikia Adventure Comics #314 The Super-Villains Of All Ages! November 1963 w: Edmond Hamilton a: John Forte Posing as an applicant for potential Legion membership, the evil Alaktor manages to take x-ray photos of every device within Legion headquarters. Sneaking back into their base, Alaktor steals one of the Legion’s time bubbles in hopes of recruiting histories most evil criminals. The Legion stumbles upon Alaktor’s plot and try to stop him across different periods. However, Alaktor manages to avoid capture while recruiting Nero, John Dillinger, and Adolf Hitler from history and bring them to the 30th Century. With a mind swap device, Alaktor manages to switch the minds of Hitler, Dillinger, and Nero into the bodies of Superboy, Mon-El and Ultra-Boy. The three then turn against Alaktor and decide to commit crimes across the universe for their own gain. The Legion tries to stop them, but in the bodies of their near indestructible friends, this proves to the easier said than done. However, the evil and opportunistic natures of Hitler, Dillinger and Nero get the better of them and all three knock each other out using the weaknesses their stolen super-bodies are vulnerable too. This allows the Legion to gather them up, and restore their friends minds back into their own bodies, return the historical figures to their own times and undo the damage they had done in the 30th Century. - via DC Wikia

Major Spoilers Podcast #746: Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture
Sep 20 2017 56 mins  
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: Stephen talks with Dan Gearino about his upcoming book, Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture. Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture by Dan Gearino The early 1970s saw the birth of the modern comic book shop. Its rise was due in large part to a dynamic entrepreneur, Phil Seuling. His direct market model allowed shops to get comics straight from the publishers, bypassing middlemen. Stores could better customize their offerings and independent publishers could now access national distribution. In this way, shops opened up a space for quirky ideas to gain an audience and helped transform small-press series, from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Bone, into media giants. Comic Shop is the first book to trace the history of these cultural icons. Dan Gearino brings us from their origins to the present day, when the rise of digital platforms has the industry at a crossroads even as sales are robust. He spends a year with stores around the country, with a spotlight on The Laughing Ogre in Columbus, Ohio. Along the way he interviews those who shaped comics retailing from the early days, including many pioneering women; top creators; and shop owners who continue to push the industry in new directions.

OTTO BINDER: THE LIFE AND WORK OF A COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION VISIONARY by Bill Schelly Otto Binder: The Life and Work of a Comic Book and Science Fiction Visionary chronicles the career of Otto Binder, from pulp magazine author to writer of Supergirl, Captain Marvel, and Superman comics. As the originator of the first sentient robot in literature ("I, Robot," published in Amazing Stories in 1939 and predating Isaac Asimov's collection of the same name), Binder's effect on science fiction was profound. Within the world of comic books, he created or co-created much of the Superman universe, including Smallville; Krypto, Superboy's dog; Supergirl; and the villain Braniac. Binder is also credited with writing many of the first "Bizarro" storylines for DC Comics, as well as for being the main writer for the Captain Marvel comics. In later years, Binder expanded from comic books into pure science writing, publishing dozens of books and articles on the subject of satellites and space travel as well as UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Comic book historian Bill Schelly tells the tale of Otto Binder through comic panels, personal letters, and interviews with Binder's own family and friends. Schelly weaves together Binder's professional successes and personal tragedies, including the death of Binder's only daughter and his wife's struggle with mental illness. A touching and human story, Otto Binder: The Life and Work of a Comic Book and Science Fiction Visionary is a biography that is both meticulously researched and beautifully told, keeping alive Binder's spirit of scientific curiosity and whimsy.

DISCUSSION: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit with David Gerstein “Hungry Hobos” was overseen by Walt Disney in 1928 as part of a distribution deal with Universal Pictures. It was the 20th short film (out of 26 made by Disney) starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a long-eared precursor to the more famous Mickey Mouse (who appeared for the first time later that year in “Steamboat Willie”). The film follows the misadventures of Oswald and his roughneck pal, Putrid Pete, as they ride a freight car loaded with animals and devise ways to cook a meal using the tools at hand. When a policeman chases them off the train, the duo poses as a hurdy-gurdy man and a monkey as part of their escape. Contact us at [email protected] Call the Major Spoilers Hotline at (785) 727-1939.
