I’m Ekko. I’ve been blogging since 2001. I started with music, then added some humor and miscellany, and now also write extensively about comic books. These are my lifelong loves.

If you want to submit your music or art for consideration, please e-mail me ekalett@yahoo.com. I read and listen to all submissions, but only review the ones that I really like. I do not review music released on a label that is part of the RIAA. This is an independent site.

MACHINE MAN #1

IMG_6112

Coming out of the Space: 2001 spin-off comic book, Jack Kirby’s all-too-brief Machine Man comic explored issues of being, humanity, and the connection between machines and people.  It was a true Science Fiction comic in its themes, and was vastly underrated.  I wish they’d release an omnibus of this title along with Kirby’s 2001 series.

Machine Man #1 hit the stands on January 24, 1978.  It was both written and drawn by Kirby.

MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END #6

In the final issue we at last understand the irony of the title. In the first issue, Jim Starlin killed off most of the Marvel Universe and subsequent issues saw many more heroes die. Of course, we all knew it wasn’t permanent. Marvel wasn’t going to kill off its entire corporate intellectual property just for a good story. But unlike many “deaths” (e.g., The Death of Wolverine from last year), Starlin made sure this death mattered. Thanos got everything he ever wanted—including a kiss from his beloved. And, in so doing, he realized that Death was not what he wanted in the end.

He just needed a purpose.

HALCYON CHAMBER

Ambient is most definitely NOT my thing, but this one…It’s a keeper. It’s very cool, very sophisticated, and pretty much hypnotic. Oh, and one more important thing: It’s free!
