We continue our holiday posts with a few focusing on Sgt. Rock, which, aside from the strip in Wednesday Comics, are honestly the only stories of him I've read.

Stories from DC Special Series #21, DCU Holiday Bash #2 and the recent DCU Holiday Special 2009 )

Tomorrow: See what holidays mean to the magical side of the DCU with Deadman, Shadowpact and a Christmas party at the House of Mystery!

I apologize in advance, I've never done this before. so I don't know how to do the whole, below the cut thing.

Got it just under the wire! For North America, anyway! Nya-ha!


Y'know, back when I was but a wee fanboy, I actually used to wonder if there was any feasible way the JLA could go up against Two-Face. It seems far-fetched to say the least, but I suppose the Joker's done it several times. So imagine my delight when, a couple months ago, I discovered this story existed!





In this two-part JLA story from 1975, our favorite bisected anti-villain teams up with the JLA to save the world from aliens inhabiting statues of Julius Caesar, Ben Franklin, and Napoleon! No, really.


God, I love the Silver Age )

Some of the most interesting superhero stories occur when characters are taken out of their usual circles. Like, Ra's al Ghul being revealed as the big bad guy in a LEGION OF SUPERHEROES story! Or EMPEROR JOKER! It's a simple, engaging, and underused trope of comics. They're the kind of stories that require a bit of imagination and originality on the writer's part, which is probably why they're not done that often.

Me, I'd love to see more of characters like Two-Face being used outside of Gotham, pitted against characters who aren't part of the Bat-Family. We already got a taste of the possibilities between this and the TEEN TITANS SPOTLIGHT issue where he faced off against Cyborg. For one thing, I'm hoping that JMS actually does the Two-Face/Hawk&Dove issue of THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD that he talked about back in May 2008. That'd be a great start.
