Oct. 12th 1985 is a very special date for me. For one, it's the date of my birth. But it's also the date that Moore and Gibbons' amazing maxi-series Watchmen begins. This October being Villains Being Awesome month, and today my special day, I wanted to showcase the one indisputable point where a controversial "villain" does an amazing bit of presentation and achieves what was for so long in comics a conventional taboo.

Spoilers for Watchmen (why haven't you read it yet?)

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair. )

11 pages from 36 page Watchmen #11

Welcome to day 12 of [community profile] scans_daily's 30 Days of Winter celebration! Today's theme is deconstructing superheroes, comics that take apart the superhero mythos to analyze the nuts and bolts and find what makes it tick!

look on my works, ye mighty... )
So S_D, what are your favorite superhero deconstructions?

Ultimate Spider-man 150 is a bumper sized good read. there's a mish-mash of artists and short vignettes, but it's good Bendis. All apart from a few bits that got under my skin quite a lot.
Off Model )

Still, there's some lovely art elsewhere. Jacen Burrows draws a mean Ultimate Iron Man, Leonard Kirk gets to do a top Ultimate Black Widow, Frank Cho draws a Frank Cho Elektra and Michael Gaydos gets to do Ultimate X-Men. PLUS, Skottie Young's Thor story looks brilliant.

So I wasn't sure who to pick for my "favorite friendship"--I was considering Matt and Foggy, but I didn't have any good scans on me. But it just hit me moments ago--what about Rorschach and Nite Owl II from Watchmen?

Without further ado, three pages from Watchmen #10. I'm willing to bet that most of you are familiar with these two, so I'll let the scans speak for themselves.

You know how hard it is, being your friend? )

Well, the 1 Year Anniversary got me realizing I should probably get my butt up and re-start my Amalgam Posting Project (also unemployment continues unabated).

So here to start us off, WWII Captain America meets Action Comics Superman...

A fun post A New Hope tale involving a drunken Rebel Pilot, freaky alien body doubles, an alien Owl-Man, the Star Wars version of "You Bet Your Life", and of course Lord Vader himself.
