Some comics are remembered for being good, some comics are remembered for being terrible, and some comics are remembered solely because of a stategically placed house ad.

DC’s Sonic Disruptors has gained a well-deserved level of notoriety for getting shitcanned in the middle of its planned twelve-issue run, but its demise was hardly a unique or unprecedented event. Roughly three years before the parties involved decided to abandon that funnybook wreck by the side of the road, the folks in charge of [...]

In my freshman year of high school — which was actually the final year of junior high in my district at the time — I chose art over earth science as an elective. After nearly flunking eight grade algebra (because I didn’t wear my glasses and was stuck at the back of a class where [...]
