Why We Love Comics

Why We Love Comics(

It’s a medium where shiny new costumes matter just as much as intricately woven panel structures. A way of telling stories which can be allegorical retelling of real history, or just an excuse to present the reader with as many cool ideas as possible, as quickly as possible. An imaginative space that encompasses thoughtful statements on how art enriches our lives, and also that one really heavy key to the Fortress of Solitude that Superman just leaves outside his front door because no one else on Earth is strong enough to pick it up. Comics can take us on new adventures and interesting ideas. They have something for anyone as you can find an amazing comic you will adore and love if you love reading books you will be shocked by the medium that many dismiss as second rate to tell the same amazing stories. Its just boldly inventive in ways they tell a story of adventure.

This week I would say they had one amazing idea shows the power of this mediums story-telling power to take us to new ideas. Die #1 introduces six teens, Ash, Angela, Chuck, Matthew, Isabelle, and Solomon, who gathers to play a role-playing game run by Solomon on Sol and Ash’s shared sixteenth birthday. This introductory issue of Die is a fascinating meditation on grief, loss, and trauma. It cleverly sidelines the specifics of the adventure the kids had, because they literally can’t speak about them, to focus in on the way they’ve rebuilt their lives and cope, or fail to cope, with their trauma. By keeping us from seeing, or even reading, about whatever exciting or daring events may have happened to them in the fantasy world, we’re forced to grapple with their psychological torment without the mitigation of visceral pleasure that really is something an interesting read.

Paper Girls focuses on the adventures of a group of friends who deliver papers in the suburban town of Stony Stream in 1988. This bold comic series shows the power of comics to tell a wonderful adventure.

In another volume collecting a more recent story-line, the girls travel back to prehistoric times, where they befriend a young mother who had her son kidnapped by the men who raped her. This story may weighty, but Vaughan’s excellent writing stops things from ever feeling too heavy. The mix of humor and human-condition commentary that tells us about As children, we can know intellectually what adult responsibilities are and that grown-up heartbreaks exist that is the simple truth of the human condition.

Blackbird is a tale of magic, mystery and self-destruction set in a Los Angeles that’s no different to our own world in any way. Sam Humphries has done a great job in building a flawed main character that has grown on me. Her resolve to save her sister drives both her and the story. Blackbird is a really compelling concept that makes adore the power of comics like this one to tell a compelling story that will spark you interest.

Season of Mists is near perfect and one of my favorite volumes in the series. The story arc has a solid beginning and a satisfying conclusion as a story on its own. And the first issue would make for a great read to introduce anybody to the world of THE SANDMAN as truly this amazing fantasy series that tells a compelling story that will spark you interest. It depicts well the world of the Dreaming, capturing the fleeting nature of an insubstantial, magical world that follows no rules and is limited only by the imagination that is such an interesting series with many looks upon the power of literature and myths and other mediums to explore what makes us human.   The sandman is the modern version of fairy-tales that can be both light and dark to explore the darker traits of humanity.

I love the structures, the melding of words and images, the non-stop flow of ideas and all the other typical stuff that typical people typically love about comics that is about telling us wonderful new adventures and stories. Comics have never failed to inspire me, and that’s what I continue to love about them today. The art, the words, the colors, the craftsmanship, all of it striking different parts of me that no other creative endeavor possibly could as they are such rich layers of story-telling that you can see a hero like spider-man overcome the hardships of his life you feel for him and cry with him. You begin to feel these people are friends to you. The power of comics and the love it inspires is to tell us stories that no other medium that can tell use these stories about heroes and villains and other wonderful ideas that take us to new worlds.

I love comics simply because they’re unique. There isn’t another medium that can do what comics can do. Films are always the first thing to be compared with them, and while they are alike in some ways they contrast in many ways, I do love film, the two mediums still stand alone as comics you simply flip the pages and find new adventures in the pages of a comic book. . It’s not just kids’ books, it’s not just a space for sci-fi fans, and it’s literature that anyone can adore anytime. There was real, genuinely form-changing stories being told in this space that is something that always can connect to any reader because it’s a huge entire world filled with every type of idea and thought and feeling and emotion and idea out there: it’s an entire magical world and it’s, just, wonderful to read them I hope you will find a magical new world in comics.

BUSTER KEATON joyful shorts

BUSTER KEATON joyful shorts


I am a very huge fan of Buster Keaton. I would say i adore his work so much. He is one of the biggest joys for me to watch his work on screen as he simply is a wonderful act to watch on screen. I would say he ranks among the best of comedy legends all time to my eyes. Buster kreaton is simply one of the true founders of visual comedy and modern comedy in so many ways so to talk him is a real joy now.

The High Sign review

The high sign is one of the best buster Keaton shorts with a ton of amazing athleticism and stunts and tons of gags it really packs a punch. The gags of the high sign are wonderful to watch form its simple gags to the surreal gags. Buster Keaton creates many fun gags that all really stand out with such charm to each of them they make you crack up and laugh instantly. Most silent shorts are long on gags but short on plot but this one has his character working in pawnshop and his character climbing houses as it shows many different facets on this short. Buster Keaton packs in an awful lot of locations and characters in 19 minutes making it a very jam packed short that will bring you joy to watch anytime on the screen.  The short ends with Keaton cavorting through a tricked-out house booby-trapped and full of secret passages that shows off physicality and visual inventiveness that is truly ahead of its time in so many ways. This is a wonderful short that you will enjoy to watch anytime.

One week review

One Week is one of the most impressive short films I’ve ever watched on any screen.  The stunts are absolutely incredible from the very beginning they get bigger and bigger as the short goes along to its end. The stunt work of Buster Keaton ranges from simple stunts to complex stunts as this short show off the wonders of Buster Keaton’s stunt works on the screen. Buster Keaton and his newlywed wife are gifted a plot of land and try to build a home for themselves, but things quickly begin to go wrong when the pieces get mixed up as normal everything seems to go wrong with this newlywed couple. One week is a marvelous short that you should see today.

Convict 13 review

Convict 13 is Buster Keaton’s first directorial efforts as director.  During a game of golf, Keaton knocks himself out with his own ball and an escaped convict changes clothes with him. The guards mistake him for the prisoner. The joy of Convict 13 is the mistaking intent he plays off of trying to escape. Buster Keaton’s performance really shines in Convict 13 as he is really the king of comedy as this short comedy gem shows off all of his talents as a comic to a great effect on the screen. Convict 13 is a wonderful short you should see today.

The Goat review

Buster gets mistaken for a murderer, dodges the police, and plays around on trains in the goat. The Goat is a charming little gem with many wonderful gags and moments that makes it a must see for any fan of Buster Keaton.

The boat review

The boat is one of Buster Keaton’s best shorts in my eyes. I adore watching Buster Keaton deal with this boating trip from hell. It’s a fun family trip gone wrong with much of it the blame of the buster’s very bad luck as everything seems to happen form sinking his boat to losing it fully in a storm as he cannot ever seem to win anything in this short. The boat is one of my favorite shorts starring buster Keaton. The boat is a wonderful gem that you should see today.

The paleface review

A Buster Keaton comedy-western as it’s where Keaton defends some Native Americans from greedy oil-men. This is one fun comedy western spoof that is something is so much fun to watch on screen. Buster Keaton plays such a soft role in this short with many fun little gags and moments to watch on screen. This is a fun little western comedy gem you should see today.

cops review

I would call Cops among Buster Keaton’s short comedies is one of his most recognized and famous and with good reason as it’s truly one of his best works of comedy for the screen. Buster Keaton displays pure athletic ability, daring stunts of his own and simply hilarious comedy that all shine together on the screen. One of the most impressive things in the film for me was the ladder sequence as that is half the size of hat is half the size of the fence as like a seesaw it tips down to the other side, and whilst this is happening, he turns his body around on the ladder whilst it is going down whilst this is happening, he turns his body around on the ladder whilst it is going down. He sees police officers coming, so he shifts his weight to the other side of the ladder, rotating his body once more causing it to tip over as gags of ladders this gag is the best of this kind of gag ever done for the screen. Another scene that stands out in cops is Keaton going down the street on his horse and carriage as a cop parade happening as he catches the bomb tossed at it and lights a cigarette with it. Cops is a truly funny and wonderful comic gem with many wonderful gags and moments that will bring you joy anytime you see them unfold on the screen making this a classic comic gem you should see today.

The Electric House review

The Electric House is another great Buster Keaton short that highlights his delight in all things mechanical on the screen.  The Electric House is probably the high point so far of Keaton using technology for laughs as he truly does such wonders with all things mechanical on the screen. The Electric House is a pure joy to watch unfold on the screen with its many wonderful moments to watch unfold on the screen. History buffs will know Keaton broke his ankle filming the escalator scene and had to put the film on hold as he dusted off an old short until the next year then re-shot everything from starch to perfection to make this gem.  The Electric House is Hilarious, inventive, unique and full of wonderful gags to watch unfold on the screen. The Electric House is a fun short gem that you will adore to watch anytime.

Why i adore buster kreaton so much

I simply adore Buster Keaton because he simply could make any simple gag and many complex gags all work together as I went through his shorts i found that he simply is marvelous with his timing that he manages make any gag truly stand out by his timing as he makes simple gags and many ladder gags all stand out. He is also a wonder with mechanical gags and he adored trains and other modes of transport as he would often use them in his gags and shorts.  He did westerns a few times that managed poke fun at the western in fun ways before western spoofs were a thing. It is truly remarkable managed do so many wonderful gags and stunts without help of anyone. I enjoyed to talk him today i hope you enjoyed my talk on some of his shorts today.

bewitched reflections



So today I talk about bewitched today. It remains one of my favorite TV shows all time. I always adored this TV show. I recall watching this charming show as a boy as it was so magical to watch upon the screen. I am ready talk some of my favorite bewitched moments and tales as reflection upon my memories of this classic series.

bewitched reflections

This series had brilliant writing for the first and possibly the second season. The characters had depth and grew and changed like real people. Serious themes were explored. Endora was even moving toward acceptance of her son-in-law as the series grew along it did have somewhat lesser later seasons but the show was always so much fun to watch for me.

A Is for Aardvark review

Here we see how power corrupts. We explore the meaning of life. When Samantha makes the house cooperate with Darrin, while he is bedridden, Darrin gradually reexamines all of his assumptions toward life. It’s truly a very good tale which we have very wonderful acting by its cast with a wonderful scripted tale that truly shows us what power if abused upon. I truly adore this tale. It has a moral lesson that really makes it even better to watch again and again this charming gem of a tale.

Eye of the Beholder review

Endora always like to have fun, particularly at Darrin’s expense and she seizes the perfect opportunity to send him into a blind panic when she comes across an old painting in an antique shop and artfully changes it to appear as though it is a portrait of Samantha, dated 1690. Darrin is positively alarmed when he comes across it and tries to hide it from Sam but when she finds it in a closet; she quickly puts two and two together and realizes what Endora is up to. This is a very wonderful tale to watch anytime.

Abner Kadabra review

Gladys Kravitz (Alice Pearce) is convinced that she has finally caught Samantha out doing something that can’t be explained, after all, it just isn’t possible for pictures to jump off a wall and hover about in mid-air before rearranging themselves. Or is it?

This is truly one of the funniest stories of the series as it’s truly funny to watch the cast act out such very funny and witty storytelling that matches closely to its roots form classic comedies. It’s truly a wonderful classic tale that you can enjoy.

My memories of the show

I recall as a boy watching this show as I tuned it often in morning when I was waking up eating breakfast as a boy for school I would laugh ass off at some of the funny moments as the charm of the series just made me smile so much. I adore this wonderful series so much. Montgomery and Agnes Moorehead and dick York among many other wonderful talents all made magic happen upon the screen. It is a series that remains forever in my heart.
