I saw where Joe Kubert is still somewhat active and he's been around since the early 40's.  I liked his work.  Of course some of my other favorites were Berni Wrightson,  Walt Simonson, Michael Golden, and Mike Kaluta.   Of course I love artists not as flashy like John Byrne, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and the like

I'd say Kirby could be pretty flashy. I think he did Rock for a stretch too.

Neil told Hoagie comics are boring to him now, he prefers science...

Maybe he should do some comics about science?

Adams seems to have been somewhat busy with DC and Marvel again the last 10 years but I don't have any of that stuff as I had stopped collecting in the 90's.

I have a lot of his stuff in digital scans now for the iPad. ;)

lol no. and i had no friends who were reading Marvel/DC comics - the only peer of mine I knew was a big Marvel/DC comic book reader/buyer was my cousin, a socially awkward nerd. This would be mid 70s era, my cousing was a few years older.

I didn't really mean it as an insult. I just associate those with girls reading them when I was a kid. I read them sometimes when I'd get stuck with an issue or two when I'd buy used comics bundles at the used book store. This was back before comics were as collectible as they are now. ;)

When would his heyday have been? In terms of sales/popularity/consumption etc? Between approx what years or decades?


I grew up with comic books but never got into the superhero ones much, I liked Archie, Sad Sack, Richie Rich type ones.

Serious question: Are you gay (not that there's anything wrong with that)? ???

oh i didn't know that, he illustrated Batman? did he write or just illustrate?

i know a very well known comic book artist, Doug and now I forget his last name, anyway for all his talent and working for the best publishers on the best comic books he makes a pretty average living. He sells original pages to bolster his income at shows.

He just drew it. Denny O'Neil was the writer during that era, I believe. Anyway, I'm sure you're friend is good but Neal is top pantheon in the industry. I'm not saying that makes him a scientist but he's likely richer than your friend...a lot richer! ;)

good point, i concede to the gentleman who taught Bob Ross to paint.

Is the gentleman aware that he's talking to himself and did he really teach Bob Ross? ???

Of course trained educated paleontologists are no match for the genius of the guy living in a trailer park who is a really good drawer.

I highly doubt he lives in a trailer park. He drew the Batman comic in one of it's best eras. I bet he could live off of his convention appearances alone.  ;D

Asimov name drop! :D

Keeping fish out of mine is even easier.

Personally, I favour executing illegals on the spot.  If you are over the age of 16 and you fail to produce your papers upon demand you are executed immediately and your body left for a minimum of three days where it falls as a warning to others (preferably in the hot, Texas sun.)

Those fucking wetbacks will be scrambling and tripping over each other to get back across the boarder.  And screw landmines- people would still take a chance.  Remote flame throwers to ensure that death is as gruesome as possible (or look at the tactics used by the viet cong to strike some real fear into the bastards.)

Pfft. "smart mines" and deportation.  Bleeding heat fucking Liberal.  8)

Yup, here's a great example of him abusing terms and concepts, saying that there's an equal-opposite force, what's the opposite to gravity?  That's not how the concepts works.

I think perhaps the word force may not be legitimately applicable to gravity, no?

There are so many things wrong with what he's saying.  It's one of the problems with "armchair scientists" -- he sees some basics of an idea, thinks he knows what it means, and then does whatever he wants with it, using arguments from ridicule along the way.  He's just like those sovereign citizens who use the English language to claim various legal things, except he does it with words in science.

Honestly, I'm still not entirely sure what he's getting at here but he sounds passionate.

I'm not sure if this is just a basic misunderstanding of chemistry by Neal or if he's actually onto something.  ???

Is there a direct link available or do you still have to listen from the bloated blog page?

I'll just pretend I am listening.

Inflation ≠ Big Bang

Inflation is a separate hypothesis that's used to explain some things we see in the universe, Big Bang model is independent of inflation.  Inflation does solve a problem, but they are separable.

I thought they're connected in the sense that the big bang is seen as the impetus of expansion? ???

Exactly, Neal! Science has become like Facebook.  ;D

One can not go wrong with sardines. When in need of a protein fix I'll often throw a can in the blender with a cup of water. It's not for everybody but I love it. And nigga, I'm high protein ;D

So true! They're also very high in essential fatty acids too.

you got it right...

Right on! This could actually be good. I'm in!  :P


Neal Adams? Batman Neal Adams or do I have it wrong? ???

Noice! A couple minor points of criticism, if you don't mind. Overall, the levels are a bit high. I think maybe the guitars (as awesome as they are) should come down a tad. Also, the snare sounds a little dark and muffled to me. This could just be a matter of personal preference though. I like to hear a lot of crack in my snare. The ending was a little weird too, sounding like it got cut off or something. Other than that, nice job! :)
