Saint Nick’s Naughty and Nice List–a 4-part serial

Although there were a few family members who had grand visions that DC was going to canonize the Major in the recent documentary on the 75 years of DC, Secret Origin, yours truly was not among them. I’m just relieved that DC/WB included him and were nice! Thank you again, Sean and Mac. Major Malcolm [...]

My real life pulp adventure

Breathlessly I jumped in the roadster knowing that time was running out if I was going to make it to the rendezvous that would change my life. Sailing past the mean streets of the City with its hustlers and dreamers I made it--well--just in the Nick of time. Watch it, big boy! © respective [...]

The “real” pulps

After all the Comic Con excitement it's time for some pulp excitement. I'm heading down to New Jersey on Saturday so that I can attend Pulp AdventureCon sponsored by Bold Venture Press. This event has been ongoing for several years and I missed last year and promised myself that wouldn't happen again so I'm heading [...]

New York Comic Con 2010

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Well not the worst but Comic Con New York was a trifle more challenging than Comic Con San Diego. We’re not in California anymore Toto. Paging Miz Estrada. Paging Miz Estrada…However it did, in the end, turn out to be fantastic. We all [...]

Kids Comic Con to Africa

I have spoken about Alex Simmons many times in this blog. Alex is a wonderful comic book writer for Archie Comics and his own comic book BlackJack featuring an African-American hero. And that's not all. He and Eugene Adams, a teacher at Bronx Community College have been presenting Kids Comic Con for the last years [...]

Stuck Rubber Baby

I left the Gulf Coast in 1968 to attend school in what seemed to be far away Birmingham, Alabama. Birmingham-Southern College is a liberal arts school in every sense of the word. It is liberal and it has a strong arts community. We used to call the local John Birch Society for a laugh because [...]

The Major and Wonder Woman

Like all young girls of my generation Wonder Woman was a great favorite of mine. Besides the beautiful artwork and all the Greek mythology and the women in charge I was wild about that costume. What little girl doesn’t want to dress up in an outfit like that? It’s the princess tiara with the tutu—perfect! [...]

Comic Con 2010 in San Diego

The Setting I’m glad to know that Comic Con is staying in San Diego. Although I’m new to the Comic Con scenario, I have come to love going out to San Diego. There’s just something about California—the sunshine, the palm trees, boats bobbing on the Pacific—the whole postcard setting that makes it so enticing. The [...]

“The Major” lands a cameo in the DC Documentary

Earlier this year DC/WB announced their intention of producing a documentary on the 75th Anniversary of DC Comics. The good news is that DC/WB decided to give Major Malcolm Wheeler Nicholson a small cameo and it's at the very beginning so that's quite nice. Hooray! However, it is a slightly awkward situation. If this were [...]

Family Business

My three Wheeler-Nicholson aunts were all attractive women with intelligence and good taste and a manner of living each in their own unique way that our grandmother, Elsa referred to as panache. The second sibling of the five, Aunt Marianne, who died in 1986, was an elegant and gracious woman, an interior designer who had [...]
