[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: Days of GLX-mas Past

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights comics that time seems to have forgotten] There has been a lack of humor recently in comic books.  I’m not sure why that is, but certainly the big two constantly one upping each other with each new issue surely has to lead to dire consequences for our heroes.  Even still, there are some books that come out from time to time with a focus on the lighter side of life. As we celebrate [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: The Holiday Spirit

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights comics that time seems to have forgotten] I’ve been looking up and down my street at my neighbors houses the past few weeks and I’ve noticed that their similarly built homes are much flashier than normal. Yes, everybody is blinging their houses up with garish lights, plastic snow people and a small few even have a baby Jesus lying out front in a cardboard manger. The holiday season is in full swing and [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: 2112

It is now December 2012 and the world is quickly approaching the end. At least according to the Mayans. Now that we are all cautiously sitting around and praying in the hopes that the sky isn’t going to fall on our heads, let’s read about one man’s crazy prediction of the future.  We’ve got plenty of time til the winter solstice ends. This time we have John Byrne’s crazy prediction for what the future could possibly look like if it [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: Fluffie Kiss

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights those titles time seems to have forgotten] This time around on It Came From the Quarter Bin, we’re going to try something a bit different.  Twinfinite is a gaming, anime and comics blog so I figured I would branch out and pick up one of the other hobbies.  Seeing as how I have yet to stumble upon any anime DVD for less than a dollar, process of elimination turns this into our first [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: First Strike! Extra!

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights comics that time seems to have forgotten] This week on It Came From the Quarter Bin, we’re going to look at a crossover tie-in that has very little to do with the crossover it is connected to.  That makes it an easy book to judge this week simply on it’s merits.  Fortunately, it’s a book from one of the most well respected authors in comics, though I doubt you’ll find many that could [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: Sarah’s Story Remembered

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights comics that time seems to have forgotten] The past two segments of It Came From the Quarter Bin have been beginnings of a story arc.  It’s pretty easy to tackle those, but comics rarely focus on single issues anymore.  Today it’s all about packaging the stories across multiple issues to bundle together for trade paper backs. So as an experiment, let’s try tackling an issue set right in the center of a major [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: Promised Vengeance

[It Came From the Quarter Bin highlights comics that time seems to have forgotten] I’m probably not going to have a unique signed copy of a quarter bin comic for you guys every week with this feature.  Heck, most will be pretty random issues. As always however, we will weigh the merit of these books as if we bought them full price.  These authors deserve at least that. This week we have a very important issue in Marvel history, even [...]

[Featurama] It Came From the Quarter Bin: 1st Edition

Comic book readers follow the same trend as most other hobbyists.  We all enjoy our bargains even if we have no idea if the books are any good.  I have indulged in my share of long box diving and have come away with a mountainous stack of books that for some reason or another have sat as unread and unloved as if they were still stuck in that dusty long box in the comic shop. Well I must say no [...]
