Slaine:The Name Of The Sword-Greg Staples
Slaine has been called upon by the Earth Goddess,as her eternal champion for another mission back through the ages-and this time it’s personal!
Our Celtic hero must travel to Britain during the Norman occupation to find the Sword of the Blood God and become the new King of the Green,Robin Goodfellow.
Also present in this age is Slaine’s earthly wife Niamh,where her soul inhabits the body of a Catholic nun,Sister Marian.
Determined to save Niamh,who unbeknownst to her is being manipulated by the Blood God himself,Slaine intends to discover the secret name of the Blood God’s sword,thus negating it’s power and releasing Sister Marian from it’s malign influence.
First though,Slaine must deal with local Norman despot,Sheriff Gilbert De Mandeville,by recruiting a local coven of Pagan rebels,who tired of daily torments at the hands of their Norman oppressors crown Slaine,King of the Greenwood and advance on his imposing castle..
Can Slaine retrieve the Sword and learn it’s secret name and will Niamh-now Sister Marian-remember her past lives with her true love Slaine and return to her belief in the Goddess Danu?

Magnus, Robot Fighter #4. “Menace from the Depths” Cover art by Russ Manning. Underwater food-processing facilities are sabotaged by a robot that wants to destroy all mankind.
Two great things about this cover. First, check out the head on that robot! It’s a “think-rob” so of course its head is huge. Second, Magnus proves to be the exception to the rule by being a male wearing a cellophane suit.
Gold Key comics ruuuuule. The old Turok: Son of Stone covers are amazing too.
Using this little link here you submit anything, from artwork to reviews and comic-related links over the ‘net!
Now please be mindful of a couple of things before sending me tons of stuff:
For Comic Art:
- Please send clean artwork, I don’t post watermarked art of any kind!
- Let me know
- who is the artist! (giving proper credit is a must!) or if you are an artist yourself, send me the proper links to your site (tumblr, devianart account, blogspot etc.)
- I only do Superheroes on this blog (and derivatives like the occasional Science Fiction, Videogame or Anime stuff), so please keep that in mind before sending me your awesome art about something totally unrelated.
- Keep it clean! I know I post a lot of comic ladies here, but I don’t post nudes or sex stuff. There’s plenty of that here on tumblr anyway.
For Comic Reviews:
For the love of god, stay away of reviews like this:
- Keep it simple: 3 paragraphs of about 7 to 10 lines explaining the most positive things you did see in the comic in question regarding writing, story, and art. Why no room for negative stuff you ask? because why the hell would I tell you to read a bad comic?
For Movies and TV Shows:
- Very much like above, you explain why whatever you watched is so great in 3 paragraphs of about 7 to 10 lines explaining the most positive things you did see in the movie (or series) in question regarding writing, story, visuals and casting. I’ve already reviewed a lot of Comic Movies, but there are some out there that I haven’t touched, feel free to take a crack at them so I’ll know if we see eye to eye!
For Music and Videos:
- I post music for your ears here from time to time, If you want to share a song (or a video, or a AMV…) that you believe is great, the only requisite I ask is that it must be related to comic lore or gaming related stuff, what does this mean specifically? well you can submit that great Soundgarden song if it belongs to a Comic Movie Soundtrack!
That’s about it for now folks, if you have any question please go to my askbox! I’ll always reply privately!
P.s: Please check these guys out, they are my greatest supporters and Comics Forever wouldn’t exist without the great push these guys have given me!
Fear Agent #28 // Tony Moore
2,000 DC Heroes to be included in Scribblenauts Unmasked. I don’t know if you’ve ever played Scribblenauts, but the long and short of it is these games have a huge database of objects that you can summon to solve puzzles by simply writing the word. And now you’ll have 2,000 DC Heroes at your fingertips. My first summon is going to be Big Barda and a Boom Tube, no question.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #24
You know you did great when they don’t need you anymore…
WHO SAID IT WAS OK TO MAKE ME SAD!?!?!?!!?
i hope you shit legos sir
I’m just gonna go sit in a corner and cry now. I will never leave my babies alone now…
Okay, I’m seriously crying my eyes out right now…..
#That’s okay, I don’t need my heart.
No but I’m actually crying right now
This isn’t funny, guys.
I’m crying now. that hurt.
I am thrilled to be well remembered, and respected in the comic book community, and to have fans willing to pay me to draw commissions, but I got into comics in order to tell stories, not to draw custom art. I still feel vital, and still want to be at that table. Do I think DC comics owes me anything? Yes and no. I understand that no company owes anything that isn’t contractually stipulated, but in my heart, I think I deserve better than being marginalized over the last 10 years. I’m not retired, I’m not financially independent. I’m a working guy with a family, working for a flat page rate that hasn’t changed substantially since 1995. I may have opportunities at smaller companies, companies that pay less per page than I made in 1988, with no royalties or ownership of any kind. I’m not at all looking down at that, but it is hard to reconcile, as I can’t work faster, and refuse to hack my work out to match the rate. I have pride in what I do, and always have. As to my part in the history of dc for the past 33 years, I was a highly visible and successful part of it, not a minor footnote.
Getting back to the beginning of this essay, and to the artists I loved as a kid, all I ask is for some of the same consideration my generation of creators and editors gave to the older guard in the 1980’s. My work is still sharp, my mind is still full of stories to tell, and I’m still willing to work all hours of my day to meet my deadlines. Why am I out of work from the publishers? Why are my friends, people who turned in great work, worthy of hardcover and trade paperback reprints, not able to get work?
As a comic reader and customer, the publishers use our older work in collected editions, for what they call first copy royalties, no reprint fees. They publish the All Star Squadron trade, for example and you buy it for whatever the cost. My royalty is maybe a couple hundred dollars, if I’m lucky, for 11 issues worth of work. On a recent Absolute Infinite Crisis hardcover, I had 30-odd pages reprinted in there, a book that retailed for over a hundred dollars— a book that DC never even gave me a copy of, and the royalty amounted to a few dollars, I couldn’t buy a pizza on that windfall. I want to work, I don’t want to be a nostalgia act, remembered only for what I did 20, 30 years ago.
