Name: John Coughlan

Bio: 25 years old, from Scotland. Relative late-comer to the Comicsphere. Although like most Brits I read lots of kids comics when younger, I only got into the larger world around 2005. Massive DC fan, especially: Batman, The Flash, Doom Patrol, Jonah Hex, Superman, Green Arrow, Power Girl, Secret Six, and much more. My Marvel love extends to Daredevil, Thor, Fantastic Four and Captain America, but am always open to more. I also love The Lone Ranger from Dynamite, The Walking Dead from Image, and Irredeemable from Boom. Ahem. I hate to toot my own horn, but I write comic book reviews and articles for entertainment and culture website Street Savvy -- thestreetsavvy.com

May 22, 2013 9:41 am Jonah Hex time-travels, instantly pulls his gun. What's he gonna do, shoot the future? ... Hell, we all know he could and would.
May 1, 2013 4:03 pm I know, I just feel sorry for Thor. He doesn't get to go to summer camp with all his pals.
April 28, 2013 4:01 pm The recent G.I. Combat series had some great modern war stories. Well, one of them was set on a dinosaur island, and the other was about the Haunted Tank and featured a Nazi War Wheel, but the Unknown Soldier story was very dark, modern and gritty.

April 18, 2013 12:43 pm Ah, I can remember the first issue like it was just two years ago...
April 17, 2013 4:44 am This looks so good it hurts. Clear influences from All-Star, Earth One and Johns' Secret Origins too.

April 10, 2013 5:48 pm I knew there had to be more to it. I mean, Apple doesn't seem like the type to ban such a thing. I kept my torch and pitchfork in their respective cupboards.
