Comic Book Profiles
of under-appreciated, oddball and/or just generally cool characters and comic books

This website is devoted to the comic books you either love with a passion or hate with a vehemence. You won't find many Marvel mutants here - I can't abide by most of the nasty little critters myself. But what you will find is a plethora of the good and bad books, as well as the interesting and sometimes not-so-interesting characters that may not have caught your eye over the past forty or so years.

This site began as a fan page devoted to my favorite comic character, the original Vigilante, and just seemed to grow from there, starting with pages on The Wanderers and Slapstick, for no reason that I can recall. I've got a lot of series I've collected over the past few years that are ready to be reviewed and profiled here, including The Inferior Five, Hex, Defenders of Dynatron City, Aztek, The Ultimate Man, Thriller and the 1992 Justice Society of America series to name a few.

Please e-mail me, Rich Meyer, at with any comments, suggestions, corrections or other information you may want to pass on.

Hopefully, almost anyone can find something to like or hate around these parts, so come on in and take a look!

Please use the pull-down menus on the bar at the top of the page to navigate between this site and my two other fan sites, The Brave and The Bold Review and The Doom Patrol Review.
