Secret Empire #7



Post a joke from this year's comic, it's a massive offense. Show one from the 80s? All in good fun. Reagan as snake-man, clearly a joke. Mockingbird in a t-shirt that says feminist, comics are ruined. -- Nick Spencer

NS: Alias sale at Comixology

 
For those who collect digitally and are fans of Jessica Jones -- Comixology is currently having a sale for the entire original 'Alias' series here.

A few notes:

1. Unlike most Marvel comics this is only available on Comixology proper due to the Explicit Content rating. You won't be able to read it on your Marvel app if you use that. 

2. It's actually cheaper to buy the complete series in digital trades over the individual issues. The four trades together will set you back about $20 as opposed to $28 if you purchase all of the issues individually.

Superman & Batman: Generations III #7: "Century 26: History Lesson, Part One"



I"n GENERATIONS 3 (which for some mysterious reason DC has chosen not to collect in trade paperback form) I had Batman create an army of OMACs to battle Darkseid's invading parademons. Next thing I know, the "real" Batman is creating an army of OMACs. Coincidence, I'm sure." - John Byrne

Superman & Batman: Generations III #8: "Century 19: History Lesson, Part Two"



'When I was working on GENERATIONS, one of the first things I needed to figure out was just how old the Kents were when they found the rocket. Originally, they were described as "elderly", but since I would be dealing with an adult Superman in 1939 in my first story, which set the landing of the rocket sometime around 1910, I got to wondering what "elderly" meant back then, when "old" kicked in around 50! Eventually I decided Pa was around 65 in 1910, old enough to qualify as "elderly" by the standards of the time. That meant he would have been born around 1845, meaning he could have fought in the American Civil War.' - John Byrne
