Bleeding Cool didn’t hate it. You can still buy it.

BC link in the image or you can go directly to Comixology and, you know, buy it. If you want. No pressure. Just comics.

i unexpectedly stumbled on this short story about steve visiting france (and a WWII veteran visiting some schoolchildren, so that’s what the narration is here) and it is. it is easily the best captain america comic i have ever read.

Please forgive the language error. I’m sorry that we were never able to get it fixed. Otherwise, this story at least gives you another look at what Stuart was doing in Secret Identity.

"did you ever think you were going to die?"

so here is more, but you need to read the whole thing.

issue 50 of the 1998-2002 run of captain america (vol. 3) is on marvel unlimited, and it’s on comixology too, for £1.50. this story is only 8 pages long, but it’s worth it, and the issue has loads of other stuff in it too.

No real reason. I just felt that some of us, me included, could use a little Beta Ray Fabio today.

Early one morning on the outskirts of Sudbury on a recent tour circumnavigating Lake Huron, we tumbled into a Value Village, ostensibly looking for a high school sports jersey (another story entirely) but instead finding an unusual volume (alongside a copy of Reg Manning’s What Kinda Cactus Izzat?)on a shelf of humour books; the overbearingly-titled Macpherson: WORLD EVENTS, REPORTAGE DRAWINGS, THE EDITORIAL CARTOON, 1966 CARTOONS A Canadian cartoonist’s review of politics from sputnik to separatism.

Duncan Macpherson, September 20, 1924 - May 3, 1993, Member of the Order of Canada, WWII vet, six-time National Newspaper Award winner, worked at the Star from 1958 to 1993, mostly in the capacity of editorial cartoonist. The book we picked up covers 1966, showing Macpherson in total command of his craft, confident and experimental and bitingly funny. The expansive “reportage” section is especially fascinating, documenting trips to Cuba, East Berlin, Soviet Russia (apparently a thing cartoonists just did, following in the footsteps of his one-time instructor David Low and contemporary Hank Ketcham) as well as sketches from the House of Commons, courtrooms (the trial of Jack Ruby!) and the Queen’s visits to Quebec and the Caribbean.

Barely a week after retiring from newspaper work, at the too-young age of 68, Macpherson died in Beaverton, ON and apart from an entry on Leif Peng’s always-recommended Today’s Inspiration blog, you might be hard-pressed to find more of his non-editorial work online. The plein air work sampled below, with such vitality and gravitas, deserves a little more recognition.

Happy Canada Day

USEFUL THING ON A SUNDAY
So, I was looking for some bits of paper (ended up falling into a whole box of Secret Identity pages, but that’s a story for another day) and thought some of you might want to know about http://www.carrmclean.ca/, if you don’t already. They are a great source for all things storage, especially Hollinger boxes. Need to put something in a box and stick it on a shelf? They’re your people.
And, I don’t know, maybe you need a book truck and some library periodical shelving while you’re at it.
-your friend in paper storage, Kathryn

On this day (or possibly the 28th) in 1846, Adolphe Sax, inventor of the Saxocannon, patented the saxophone. This is how it happened. We know because we were there.

So this is a shot glass display storage case (from Michael’s) which perfectly fits the few small objects we’ve got hanging around, with ten slots to spare currently. It’s got a nice hinged glass front. The back was black and is now fitted out with cream paper. At any rate, it’s a useful object if it’s the kind of thing you might be in the market for.
 Top row, two extraordinary amigurumi from the lovely MJ Armero, that David Lafuente hand delivered at a Spanish comic convention . A found Spider-Man and a bespoke ookpik from the adored needle-felting maniac Robyn Bremner.
Middle row: Next Wave heroclix including a custom Swiss Army Machine Man.
Bottom row: a set of 1973 Belvision Tintin figures bought about 20 years ago in Calgary.
Shot glass case. You could probably use one.
edited to add: the shelves are flat.
