  1. man…

    Pope is the son of Kirby. he should be doing something with Morrison. a vortex would open and Kirby’s head would come through and spread enlightment through colourful soundwaves.

  2. Very nice. Pope’s Inhumans are the most on-model in recent memory. Great Annihilus, too.

  3. Hey, no fair! Paul Pope has comics in Wednesday Comics AND Strange Tales!

  4. Am I the only one who can’t read this guy’s art?

  5. Am I the only one who much prefers seeing Paul soaring out there on his own amazing, personal, self-created stuff instead of this nice, very nice, pay-the-bills, work-for-hire, propping up Misdarvneyel corporate properties? Roll on Battling Boy and Complete THB please!

  6. All in due time, Paul.

    And Bill– no, you’re not.

  7. PS– I did this story in 2007, well before Wednesday was a gleam in Chiarello’s eye.

    PPope, you rock my socks man!!! :)

  9. I am looking forward to this comic. I’ll keep an open mind on how indie creators will interpret the Marvel universe. Since I enjoyed the recent Omega the Unknown, I should be okay.

    However, I gave up on DC’s Wednesday Comics after week 4. In many cases, I found each new week’s episodes either didn’t advance the stories far enough, or in some cases, I couldn’t even understand the visuals (coughWWcough) or decipher the lettering. Metal Men was my favourite during those 4 weeks.

    So, on to Strange Tales! Hopefully Paul Pope’s Inhumans story will have dialogue included in the art, or I will be puzzled and lost yet again…

  10. Medusa using her hair to open up a can of dog chow for Lockjaw?

    That is pure.comics.LOVE.

  11. Nice, sweet stuff. I was able to to say hello and express my appreciation for his work at SDCC and I came away an even bigger fan. Even though he had many demands on his time, he couldn’t have been more gracious.

  12. What do you think of when you look at the cross and the crucifix? Do they hold sacred and religious value for you?

    After reading Ogechukwu’s book, your perception may change; the church’s use of these symbols has, for centuries, concealed facts regarding their true origins. Ogechukwu reveals those findings in this stunning expose.

    His research includes historical accounts of Christianity’s conspiracy and divulges the true meaning of the cross—a satanic symbol. Ogechukwu states:

    “For centuries after Christ, the church and other religions that use cruciform symbols have misrepresented the physical nature of Christ’s death with a satanic symbol (cross), and a pagan idol (corpus). This secret has been concealed by the church for centuries after Christ.”

    What reason did the church have for shifting the cross’ meaning from one of evil to one of goodness?

    This easy to read, enlightening and academically sound book regarding the symbolism and meaning of the cross leads to a stunning conclusion. Learn more about the real nature of Christ’s death and religion’s role in the change in symbolism. Ogechukwu wants to reveal the truth in hopes of releasing humankind from what he calls the “painful knowledge bondage” of cruciform propaganda.


  13. I have looked at those pages quite a few times and I still can’t seem to find the cross and crucifix! ; P

    Read the book today. The Punisher “Scared Smart” story is about the funniest thing I’ve ever read in a comic book.


  1. […] Marvel’s (or is that Disney’s?) Strange Tales #1 also launches today featuring an Inhumans tale and an amazing cover from the great pulp hope, Paul Pope.   Other creators include Peter Bagge, Nick Bertozzi, Molly Crabapple, Michael Kupperman, and Johnny Ryan. […]
