Based on an actual dream I’ve had.

A dream I only had early this morning after having said dream. I thought I was going to go comicless this week and then that happened. So this might be posting a bit late tonight but at least I came up with something.

Over at The Clutter Reports this week I sort of review the original version of Kingdom Of The Dwarfs, an illustrated book whose topic should be obvious given the title. It’s a fake account of finding a dwarf village in someone’s flower bed. The short version is it’s a beautiful piece of work in a genre I don’t really follow. See my review for the rest.

As for reviews this week, the Robotech comics are going back to original stories for the Antarctic Press miniseries Covert Ops, which I believe takes place chronologically just after the SDF-1 escapes Saturn. How well it does so we’ll be finding out. Meanwhile there won’t be a lot of feature articles this week outside of our continuing Chapter By Chapter look at Op-Center since I’m nearly done with the video review and want to make that my focus this week. If I get done in time to give it the YouTube Content ID once over I can post it in a premiere showing by the end of the month, maybe even the end of the week if I’m really lucky. No promises given my recent record. Beyond that I have a few maintenance issues to address that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. So this will be a week of Filler Videos but I always try to bring you something interesting to watch. This is of course barring incidents in the world of entertainment I feel the need to comment on, but my focus is on getting the video review done. I think I’m coming up with a system to speed that up but it will be a few more videos for me to tweak it into something that works. Have a good week, folks!

    I thought Comico closed up shop (went bankrupt) in 1990. But according to your article and the dwarfs book, it appears Comico was still pushing out product in 1991. This dwarfs book is something very different from the 80s Comico comics I was into such as the three Robotech sagas, Star Blazers, Johnny Quest, Rio graphic novel, the Space Ghost graphic novel, and the Gumby Summer Fun Special. Seeing Comico try its hand at fantasy is quite interesting and intriguing. Hey, I’m sure some local comic shop would be happy to buy this off of you seeing as you’re saying it goes. There’s lots of fantasy fans out there.

    • There’s actually a bit of history about Comico ownership and going back and forth you might want to look up. I think they finally went kaput in the early 2000s, followed by a now defunct webcomic project.

        Yes, I will have to look that up. Thanks for the info, Tronix! To me, the glory days of Comico were from 1985 to 1988. It would be interesting to learn about what happened with Comico from 1990 and onwards.
