Skin Tight Orbit vols 1 & 2 by Elaine Lee and various, published by NBM/Amerotica. The US direct sales comics market has been through so many upheavals since it started in the late 70s. It always seems to be either going through a huge growth spurt or a catastrophic downturn? The reason I’m mentioning this … Continue reading ELC1995: Skin Tight Orbit

(July 14, 2020)

Starstruck: The Expanding Universe #1-4 by Elaine Lee, William Michael Kaluta, published by Dark Horse.

ELC2011: “Mischief”

(July 13, 2020)

“Mischief” by Elaine Lee in Chicks with Capes, edited by Lori Gentile and Karen O’Brien, published by Moonstone. OK, this blog series is about Elaine Lee’s comics, and this isn’t a comic book. Instead it’s an anthology of short stories about super-heroes. But I’ve bought it, so I might as well read it. Oh, it’s … Continue reading ELC2011: “Mischief”

ELC1994: Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant

(July 11, 2020)

Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant #1-4 by Charles Vess, Elaine Lee, John Ridgway and others, published by Marvel. What on Earth is this, then? A… new Prince Valiant? Published by Marvel? Wat?

ELC1994: Vamps

(July 8, 2020)

Vamps #1-6 by Elaine Lee, William Simpson and others, published by DC/Vertigo.

(Oh, Here’s an explanation of what this blog series is.) Let’s read the first three pages. Hey! … Continue reading ELC1994: Vamps

ELC1993: Saint Sinner

(July 7, 2020)

Saint Sinner #1-7 by Elaine Lee, Max Douglas, Larry Brown and others, published by Marvel Comics. This book is part of Marvel’s Razorline — basically super-hero concepts from Clive Barker expanded into a line of four continuing series. I approached this series with a bit of trepidation after having read far too many Barker-based comics … Continue reading ELC1993: Saint Sinner

ELC1997: BrainBanx

(July 3, 2020)

BrainBanx #1-6 by Elaine Lee, Temujin and others, published by DC/Helix.

(Oh, Here’s an explanation of what this blog series is.) I’ve … Continue reading ELC1997: BrainBanx

Indiana Jones and the Spear of Destiny #1-4 by Elaine Lee, Dan Spiegle and Will Simpson, published by Dark Horse comics. (See this for what this blog series is about.) Hm!

ELC1993: Ragman: Cry of the Dead

(June 27, 2020)

(June 25, 2020)

Steeltown Rockers #1-6 by Elaine Lee, Steve Leialoha and others.

Elaine Lee Comics

(June 24, 2020)

Starstruck, written by Elaine Lee and with artwork by Michael William Kaluta is one of my favourite comics. It’s certainly my favourite genre comic — it’s an exhilarating reading experience, and seemed to hint at an entirely new way of doing comics. Over the years, I’ve re-read it many times… mostly because they keep releasing … Continue reading Elaine Lee Comics
