Image
Champion City Comics writer and artist, A. Kaviraj, has produced countless pieces of artwork and he recently sent me some of his Silver Age parodies. Kav's humor and alternative/indie style of work is something I have enjoyed over the past three years. I hope you enjoy these parodies as well!

KAV'S RULES FOR MOVIES & COMICS PART II

Image
Cops will always lick an unknown powder then proclaim it's drugs. Real cops never do this. They wait for lab results or use the 'turn blue' field test.

Hookers will always have soft hearts, not be the real life nasty selfish chicks they are.

Doctors will stupidly use a defibrillator to start a heart, when in fact a defibrillator STOPS the heart so they can do CPR and get it beating normally again. Screenwriters are too stupid to look up the definition of 'defibrillate'.

Spies in movies will always STARE at the bad guy spy. In reality this is pretty stupid.

James Bond always tells everyone he's 'Bond. James Bond.' Real spies keep their identities secret. Duh.



Teachers in movies will always have only one class. Plus, the class lasts about 5 minutes. Students in movies are always in the class BEFORE the teacher arrives, somehow having keys to the classroom. In movies teachers don't lose their jobs for leaving the classroom unsupervised.

In…

KAV & TONY BREAK IT DOWN: ACTION COMICS #295 'SUPERMAN GOES WILD' PART II (PAGES 5 - 10)

Image
Kav & Tony Break it Down is nothing more than two long-time comic book readers making fun of the Golden and Silver Age Superman comics. We understand that these books were written for a juvenile audience but we could not resist reviewing these classics. Please note that no comic books were hurt during the review.

This week, we are continuing our review of Action Comics #295 titled 'Superman Goes Wild'. Did you miss part one of this series? Click here to read.

Action Comics #295 was published December, 1962. The writer was Henry Boltinoff, the pencils were by Curt Swan, and the inks were by George Klein.

KAV: Superman proceeds to do the Twist and wrecks all the typewriters. Everyone is shocked and no one says, "Ok calm down-it's probably another Red K effect or hypnosis machine or something". I loved seeing Supes call Perry 'Fat Stuff'.

KAV'S DVD REVIEW OF CHRONICLE

Image
Ok this film starts out with the school geek, Andrew Detmar, who, like Peter Parker, gets picked on by everybody. As if this wasn't nerdy enough, he decides to buy a camera and start videoing everything: school, thugs, parties-which of course ensures he gets pummeled even more frequently. At a party, as he is wiping beer someone splashed on his camera off, he is approached by Steve, a good-natured black kid, who found a 'thing' in the woods which he wants Andy to film.

The 'thing' is a deep hole in the ground from which emanate strange sounds. the pacing, acting and scenes are great. High early hopes for this film. At the hole waits his cousin and non-protector, Matt.

Andy shows little interest in this amazing hole, which is strange for a guy who is going around videotaping stuff. The hole is a big cavern, in which is a giant glowing alien crystal. The crystal bestows telekinetic powers and bloody noses. Everything is 'chronicled' by Andy, Clove…

KAV'S RULES FOR MOVIES & COMICS

Image
In a war movie, anyone who shows his buddies a picture of his girlfriend back home, is doomed to die.
In any cop movie, in order to solve the crime, it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

Whenever a female is running for her life, she will fall and 'twist her ankle'. Then she will get back up and keep running.

A new cop is always paired with his complete opposite, a loner who doesn't want a partner cause his last partner got killed. The chief will always take the cops 'off the case', but they will continue pursuing it.



A friend or associate with a scar on his face will always turn out to be the bad guy.

Cops in movies can shoot at a fleeing felon.

An air bubble in the vein is magically deadly. In reality, it's completely harmless.

In any romance, the woman will walk in on a 'misunderstanding' and bolt. Then the dude will chase her down, jump through some hoops, and get her back.

At the end of a movie, the villain will always cli…

KAV'S THOUGHTS ON DC AND MARVEL COMICS

Image
Champion City Comics artist and writer, A. Kaviraj, is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to comics. In this article, he gives you a little bit of a "Did you know?" article with a dash of a "How superheroes defy the laws of physics" article.

Did you know that in the original Superman comics everyone on Krypton had super powers because they were an advanced race? It wasn't Earth's weaker gravity and the Sun that gave Superman his powers - he already had them. Also, his suit was normal Earth cloth that he 'treated with chemicals' to make it heat resistant.



He worked at the Daily Star. There was no Jimmy Olsen. When he tried to join the army, the doctor's needle kept snapping and all this medical genius said was, 'This man has incredibly strong muscles'. In the orphanage he was tossing cribs around and years later when he became Superman no one from the orphanage stepped forward and said, 'Hey, that must have been that kid who t…
