While GL 53 gets jeers for giving us Hal Jordan: Insurance Adjuster, it also brings back one of my favorite characters – psycho Sue! For those who don’t recall, Sue was a reporter who thought Hal’s brother Jim was Green Lantern. If that sounds familiar, it’s because she was essentially the Silver Age Lois Lane […]
The first page of issue number eight establishes a few things.
I’m gonna end this today even if it maims me.
I just love this issue so much…
Chapter three totally rips us off by not having an awesome title. Instead, it just has a massive car wreck.
Hop Harrigan is a fun little home-spun adventure strip, featuring a young boy who basically runs away from his legal guardian to hang out on an airstrip with two guys.
There is, of course, nothing actually wrong with the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. It’s fun to make jokes, but we all know it’s a father/son dynamic and nothing more. The thing is, with panels like the one below, I have to wonder if the Powers That Be at DC wanted that subtext. […]
This sequence, from Batman #10, has been making the rounds online for some time. It begins in the bottom right corner of page 1: “A strong hand rises”? “Yielding flesh”? No folks, that’s not Photoshopped. Turn the page! Turn the page! It’s okay folks, nothing sexual about it. It’s just your typical, every day birthday […]
His first adventure and he’s already responsible for two homicides! Murder #1 he performs on his own. Murder #2 is more interesting though. Snap what, you ask? “Sure, we could have saved his life, but then we’d only be able to pin you with attempted murder. This is much better for everyone.” “Also? I like […]
I’m not setting out to be a continuity freak. Really. This one is just so glaring, I couldn’t leave it be. As some of you may recall, MJ was pregnant in the 90’s. She eventually gave birth, only the baby was stillborn. Or.. was it? Right after the baby was born we saw someone spirit […]
In Showcase #59, the Teen Titans meet “The Flips”, a “hip” band (dig it, daddy-o). This story has been already been mocked on the web, but I just have to include this one page. I love the continuing “realistic” teen/guardian interaction. I am also amused by the fact that they have television in Atlantis and […]
Brave and the Bold 60 features a great sequence where the Titans are called off. We get to see their mentors reactions to the team? The boys get “just be careful” ? Donna gets “Oh but you’re just a girl!” Which is even funnier when you consider that it’s coming from the leader of an […]
As most comic geeks know, Thor’s hammer Mjolnir has the following inscription: “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Very few people can lift Mjolnir. I think the list consists of Odin, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man 2099, Thor’s son from an alternate future (two, actually), Captain America’s daughter […]
I understand it’s a different time and things were not done the same way they are now but… Who spanks a toddler with a hairbrush? Oh and dressing your kid up like Superman is a wonderful way to protect that secret identity, Clark.
In the interest of being fair to both genders, here’s one from Sue and one from Reed. First up…more Reed dickery! If you thought Reed was only a dick to Sue in the “good ol’ days”, I give you a panel from a 1990 issue of FF: Reed you Silver Tongued devil you! Sue’s got […]
Maybe it’s just me, maybe my perceptions are colored through a prism of modern times, but this panel gives me an icky feeling deep in my viscera. “Daddy? Mommy? Why won’t you listen to me about Uncle Jarvis? WHY?”
Pop quiz folks: A sudden blackout strikes your city, causing mass panic. Do you a) Get your child to safety, then help? or b) Leave him alone on a busy street in the middle of said mass panic?. If you’re Sue Storm, the answer is always “b”.
Sue’s really not bright. Why do I say this now? She keeps leaving her infant with a blind woman. No offense to the visually impaired, but that’s not right.
Riiiight. How many covers/panels have I posted showing Supeman misusing his abilities? Typical father. Do as I say, not as I did. I still have a huge backlog of Superman panels and covers, but if all goes well today they’ll be put on the back burner for some Fantastic Four. I don’t know about all […]
