    As you can see if you’ve been here before, I’ve been meddling with the wordpress theme. Since I never update the little covers at left- who has the time- I thought they could go. They make for slower loading the first time and get in the way when I’m trying to connect a post image [...]

    Bookmark it: Paul Tobin’s Site

    At last, PAUL TOBIN.NET exists and there will finally be a place to find out all things Paul Tobin! If you haven’t read his comics, then you’re in for a treat. You may have read some of the things we’ve teamed up on, like WHAT IF: SPIDER-MAN VS. WOLVERINE or a few issues of MARVEL [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part eight

    *Nuts! I thought I had this set to post today, automagically. Anyway. The big showdown between the future Agents of Atlas and mysterious bad guys (and a mutated Cosmonaut dog) comes to a head in Washington, DC! Points to any old school Marvel readers who know where that biker gang is from. Going back over [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part seven

    We’re almost done- in this penultimate chapter Jimmy Woo’s team venture behind the Iron Curtain to get a peek at the Soviet space program. Space nerds will note the appearance of an historical figure; Marvel nerds will note an early appearance of the Red Ghost. (I, of course, am both kinds of nerd)- JP ——————————————————————————————————— [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part six

    “The Liar and the Truthteller” “Brain tissue?” asked Venus, clearly repulsed. “Yes- a brilliant if crude solution,” replied Marvel Boy as he looked at the machine that had been influencing their dreaming minds. “Earth simply doesn’t have very sophisticated means of computing yet. Your greatest computer is the size of a small house and can [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part five

    As you may have guessed, these posts were pre-set to go up while I’ve been out of town. I just got back and found out the sad news about Dave Stevens. I want to write about him, but I’m not up to it yet so I’m going to keep running the serial until it’s done [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part four

    Today’s has another appearance of a Golden Age Timely character, and a ghost pirate! Also a clue that you don’t need to solve. -JP ___________________________________________________________________________ The chalky hand holding the dagger pushed through the water towards Venus. She darted from her position to another section of the pilot house. More shapes arose from the black, [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part three

    The rebus image in today’s excerpt was part of a clue that led players to IGN.com for a clue. Golden Age Comics fans will also notice the appearance of a sea-faring Timely character. On to our story… ______________________________________________________________ Jimmy Woo’s arms and legs wouldn’t budge. He had never frozen in fear before, and he was [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part two

    Okay, I’m leaving out the Mr. Lao bits today- they come across as confusing out of context. Also, if you read the text pages of the Agents of Atlas miniseries, you’ll catch parts of this serial that were referred to. Back to our story!-JP ______________________________________________________________ “What’s shakin’ Bob. Are those slide-rule jockeys hep on how [...]

    MENACE FROM SPACE part one

    In 2006 The Agents of Atlas miniseries was approved and my editors and I immediately saw the uphill battle we would have in getting the book noticed. Not only was it full of characters who hadn’t seen the light of day in decades, but the Marvel Machine was gearing up completely to push the big [...]

    Content Soon

    It occurs to me while I’m battling deadlines (I should just accept them, zen-like) that I could run the Agents of Atlas online adventure that I wrote and many people haven’t read. So I think tomorrow I’ll begin that. It’ll get you warmed up for a very neat appearance later this year, too. And you [...]

    Parker Digital Comics

    It looks like I’m being spotlighted for the week at Marvel’s Digital Comics Unlimited. Which means if you’d like to read how I begin a scene for free and then get a pop up window inviting you to become a member, you’re in luck! There’s never been a better time to start reading Jeff Parker [...]

    Things To See

    Here are a couple of links that have kept me busy today. First, cartoonist Sandy Jarrell has put up the whole Part 2 of his excellent online book, WHAM. It’s not colored yet, but Sandy’s art works so well in black and white I’d say don’t even, except I like his colors. Great stuff. And [...]

    Go to Ringo

    In case you haven’t already been by there today, Mike Wieringo has his new website rolling. He got the Gettis treatment like I’ve enjoyed here, and is kickin’ it WordPress style. And we can finally link directly to posts! In unrelated complaints, if I find one more concrete footing for something buried in my backyard, [...]

    The Past is Not Lost

    First, for no other reason than to use the power of suggestion irresponsibly, I think I’ll make you hungry. Sorry. The real subject today is that my old Archives from Mystifying Oracle are now over here. Hah, to those of you who thought I just started a blog a few weeks ago. I went through [...]
