""I'm very public in my dislike of Lois. She's the original gold-digger. Clark meant nothing until he was Superman. She was horrible to him, and he chased her like a whipped puppy. Any therapist would tell you, this is not a romance made in heaven.

"So to all that, let me just say ... Lana's single again. And she liked Clark as Clark first, and then also as Superman. Much healthier.

"And, of course, Wonder Woman's still out there. But Rucka says, 'over my dead body,' and he's tough. Used to be an EMT. I respect his toughness."

""But I wrote a couple stories that were pretty much 'out of the box' as far as DC thinking was concerned, and it invigorated Eddie. He liked the fresh approach, and got very enthusiastic about my ideas. So he asked me 'If you were to write Superman, how would you handle it?' and I did some research. I read tons of Superman stuff, and the only work that grabbed me was the original Siegel and Schuster material. Brilliant in its charm and simplicity. I loved it.

"But it also made me hate Lois. She was a horrid bitch! She was outright cruel to Clark and never gave him the time of day until she learned he was Superman. Talk about your original gold-digger! (laughs) Jeez.

"But what charmed me about the original was Superman's sense of humor. He was light, funny, charming, and violated civil rights left and right. He was no boy scout. He carries the bad guy along power lines at one point to scare information out of him! Great stuff. So amazingly fun. As I said before, it was the original in so many ways, and one of those ways was adolescent gratification through power fantasy.

I'm just going to rapid fire the rest of Austen's run with a post every day instead of dragging out over weeks and months. As such, let's take a look at the next issue...

When I joined Scans Daily, I had an entire plan to post this on Father's Day as my first post. And then I forgot. But better late then never so image heavy-ish post ahead.

Well my recent attempt to post a mini-story involving Helena Wayne huntress was foiled (and by foiled I mean I can't read/understand the rules properly) so I will do what any sane man would do.

Post more scans of Chuck Austen in a vain and misappropriated attempt at vengeance.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Havok restoring Iceman out of pee.

Guess we must call this one a COLD shower eh guys?! CHUCK AUSTEN EVERYBODY! )

I've never been a big fan of all the Chuck Austen hate. Was he really that bad? Well... maybe. Polaris going batshit crazy and actually being Magneto's daughter are some of the bigger problems. But some of the special dislike is for "The Draco." But there's a very good scene in Part One of the story.

Brotherly hate. )

...There was "Action Comics Weekly", DC's first attempt at a weekly comic book. It was an anthology comic somewhat on the model of 2000 AD, several continuing stories each week, with seven page chapters (and a two-page Sunday comics spread for Superman.) There were several interesting projects done during this run--I especially liked the new Secret Six they had. Sadly, sales and logistics reasons meant that the experiment lasted less than a year.



Love that Kirby art, though I think this might have been an inventory piece DC had lying around. 2 1/3 pages from each of the seven-page storiesin Action Comics Weekly #638 (2/7/89), one double-page spread, and a special treat!

Remember relevance? )

okay, US War Machine had some good points.

the sequel? not so much, really.

i mean, without the halfway interesting hook of an insurgence on Latverian soil, it kinda needed to do " special ops team with power suits " good, and... well, it didn't fail, it just came in well below the mark.

oh, and the ar... the visual half of the medium went to... somewhere. Anyhow, I just wanted to show you some narm. It's good narm. Quality. From Tony Stark.

Only two scans this time, so I don't hate you all nearly as much anymore.

Besides, there's a half-tanked Tony Stark. That's always fun, right?  )

(a note: not to be confused with the non-MAX War Machine series, which has less self-dating art and is actually in continuity, as this one is clearly not.

also, lotta images sized to 800 x 1000.)

so yeah, U.S War Machine: it's written by Chuck Austen, the art is kinda Adi Granovian in the sense that Rocman X is like anything Mega Man, and the plot's pretty stock.

But come on: James Rhodes picked up by SHIELD to lead a team outfitted with covertly acquired Starktech onto Latverian soil to stop an AIM plot? It just sounds cool, doesn't it?

... well, it turns out to be slow in getting to that coolness.  )
