My anitpathy for Valerie D’Orazio is one of the comics blog circuit’s worst kept secrets, but this week, I was able to put aside my all-consuming spite for an act of self-promotion so shameless that even I was shocked by it: an interview on Occasional Superheroine about Solomon Stone and the Action Age. Once again, my loss of integrity is your gain, as we discuss ROM: Spaceknight, The Hard Ones, and the many ways in which I threaten Matthew Allen Smith.
But that’s not the only place people are talking about Solomon Stone:
- Mike Sterling calls it the World’s Most Perfect Comic, but since it doesn’t involve any swamp monsters, we can safely assume that he’s slightly exaggerating.
- The Poor Mojo Newswire calls it “the most fun webcomic on the internet ever. Seriously.”
- Jimmy Olsen’s Blues says TCOSS is “so long-awaited that your grandfather got sick of waiting for it and went off to fight the Nazis instead!”
- John Chidley-Hill of Alternavox calls it “a masterpiece of re-constructionism.”
- Fleen gives it a recommendation based solely on my “writing about comics,” thus proving once again that standards have never been lower.
Expect even more from the Action Age Hypaganda Machine as we head to the final chapter of Solomon Stone #1 next Wednesday!
