Sci-Fi with a Twist
Short science fiction and fantasy stories that, more often than not, end with a surprise or twist you couldn’t see coming. Transport yourself to other lives and other worlds where travel through time and space is a reality and where second chances and the end of the world sometimes cross paths. It’s a detour into the unknown filled with wonder and excitement beyond reality, and yet close enough, to make you second guess yourself.
 
The sequel to the Time Cruisers is here!

The Man from Nowhere

A man appeared from nowhere near the small out west town of South Fork in the 1800’s, and quickly became the town’s trusted sheriff. His speed with a gun was greater than what any of the locals had ever seen before. If only he could remember who he was and where he came from,he might have a chance against the man every bit as fast with a gun as he is that wants him dead and doesn’t care who he has to kill to do it.

The Incredible Hulk vs Rom the Spaceknight
 

The Incredible Hulk issue 296 is one of my favorite comic books from back in the day. This is one of those classic issues that you can read over and over again.

Not only does the Hulk take on Rom Spaceknight, but he also battles another Hulk that I believe was most likely inspired by the old Hulk incarnation from the TV show.

The History of the Red Skull Captain America's Biggest Enemy

In the back of Captain America #12 1998 the Red Skull's history up to that point is laid out. These are words from that issue for the most part.

Describing the Skull the article says, "He has been called the most evil man who ever lived. The symbol of hate. The incarnation of torture. A bane to all those who would live free from tyranny. And therefore, it should come as no surprise that he is the sworn enemy of the land of the free's protector of liberty, Captain America." More

The 1982 JSA/JLA/All-Star Sqadron Team-up!

In 1982 one of my favorite time story epics of all time made it's way to the local newstand. DC Comics took the annual JSA/JLA team-up and expanded it into the JSA's book the All-Star Squadron. The fate of Earth-1, Earth-2, and Earth-Prime was held in the balance as well as the past and future.

Superman’s Health and Fitness Mission for President Kennedy

Back in 1963 very shortly before the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Kennedy administration asked DC Comics to involve Superman into their health and fitness program. The project was cancelled after the death of JFK, but brought back after Johnson asked DC to publish the special story, which they did. For more on this piece of history!

Where are the good guys?

Is there such a thing as actual good guys anymore in comics, television, and movies?

Depending on your age, you may or may not remember a time when superheroes and heroes in general aimed at kids actually took moral stances on things like stealing, lying, cheating, and so forth. These days heroes barely seem to hold even life itself in very high regard.

What is a hero really? Is it just someone that can beat the living crap out of the bad guys? These days the line between bad guy and good guy is so faint about the only thing separating them is plain old murder. More on Where are the good guys article

Steve Reeves the Legendary Hercules

From 1959 through 1964, Famous body builder Reeves went on to appear in a string of sword and sandal movies shot on relatively small budgets, and although he is best known for his portrayal of the Greek hero Hercules, he played the character only twice: in the 1957 film and its 1959 sequel Hercules Unchained (released in the US in 1960). His first Hercules film was an 1958 Italian epic fantasy feature based upon the Hercules myths and the Quest for the Golden Fleece. Hercules was directed by Pietro Francisci and produced by Federico Teti. The film spawned a sequel, Hercules Unchained, that also starred Reeves and Koscina. more

One of my favorite comic book artists I grew up with was Superman artist Curt Swan. At the time I think I sort of took his work for granted always looking forward more to seeing someone's work like John Byrne for example, but now as an adult I really appreciate the clear crisp sort of classic look Swan brought to Superman comics. I really miss seeing his type of art, and the type of stories that accompanied those Silver Age stories.
