Please Enjoy the Music While We Adjust Our Personal Lives

Dear Loyal Readers,

Sometimes life requires a little more of our time than we would like. That goes for yours truly as well. Illness in my family, moving (a personal move, not the business), and a few other personal obligations will keep me from the regular blog for a couple of weeks (at least). In the meantime, enjoy the music of your life, and the "fillers" here at Confessions until things get back to "normal" (whatever that might be).
   Happy trails,

This wonderful bit of animation comes via my good friend Jonathan Douglas, who, like a Mighty Hero of Legend, entered my life and added great wonders and adventures beyond the experience of mere mortals. I'll tell you more about Jon and his amazing talents in future blogs. In the meantime, enjoy the music, and the animation. -- The Comic Book Pusher

That's one top notch animation.

While it makes sense that you went with a Superman theme, I would have done something like, "Na na na na na na na na Comics Club!" What else would you expect from a Batman junkie?

A Note From The Comic Book Pusher:Richard Lee Byers is a lifelong comics fan, a good friend of The Comics Club, and the author of more than thirty fantasy and horror novels, including a number set in the Forgotten Realms universe and the X-Men novel Soul Killer. His short fiction has appeared in numerous magazinesand anthologies Bad Dadsby Richard Lee ByersI liked everything about the new Thor movie, including the fact that the plot was based on father-son conflict. As fans know, this has often been a crucial story element in the comic. I was bemused, though, that Thor starts out reckless, immature, and irresponsible while Odin is compassionate and wise throughout (although his wisdom doesn’t keep Loki from getting up to shenanigans.) Don’t get me wrong; in the movie, this works great. In the comics, though, it’s often been Thor who’s noble and Odin who’s a douche bag, arrogant, blind, and impossible to please, perpetually pissed off that his son loves a mort…

We Interrupt This Blog For A Burst of Cranial Flurry . . .

By The Comic Book Pusher
A customer came in the store a few minutes ago and asked for current-size comic book bags and boards. Not only do we carry a wide variety of collecting supplies, we happen to be having a sale on those items right now. I told him he could save more in the long run by buying two, because the third one would be free.     "I really don't need that many," he said blandly.     "Ah, but you will eventually need them," I said enthusiastically, "and you'll have saved yourself a lot of money in the long run," I encouraged.    "Wow," he said, rather deadpan. There was a flavor of apathy in his tone. "That's a good deal, but I'm actually cutting back on comics and trimming down my collection." Bam! Pow! The sudden, unexpected assault on my capitalistic senses slammed me in the hip, right around the wallet region. I began to feel a little dizzy.    "Cutting back"? "Trimming down"? I could hear …

The Evolution of Free Comic Book Day At The Comics Club

The Evolution of Free Comic Book DayAt The Comics Club The best comic book day of the year keeps getting better By The Comic Book Pusher
Take Christmas and your birthday, add a dash of treasure hunt and put it all in a blender. Pour the mix into a comic book store and you’ll have yourself a counter culture “national holiday” known among true believers as Free Comic Book Day (FCBD).  Yes my fellowpanelologists,FCBDis once more nearly upon us and I’ve felt the excitement building among our customers for weeks. I have to confess, even though I have been putting on The Comics Club’s Free Comic Book Day Celebration since the event began in 2002, for me it never grows old. I still get excited about it year in and year out. For those of you new to the world of comic books, the event is the brainchild of Joe Field of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, California. It happens every year on the first Saturday in May. Most comic book stores across the country and around the world take part on some level…
