Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.



This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

...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? )

I'm sure you've noticed the trend of how the Bloodlines Annuals tend to go by now with long drawn out appearances and attacks and the like. It's rather odd how this issue plays the Parasites angle and how little actual battling there is and  how much story there is instead which I'm guessing was a staple of the Mike Grell Green Arrow run.


18 pages from a 56 page story.

Well with my previous post (with Lionheart and the JLI) the portion known as the Outbreak has ended we now begin the Earthplague portion of Bloodlines.

Admittedly this story seems a bit  dated given the technology focus of the story but it's still one of my favorites. Now watch in awe (or is it despair) as Robin meets the Psyba-Rats.

18 pages from a 56 page story.


Time for the Psyba-Rats to cut in! )

Back when I posted Two-Face: Year One--which entirely cut out the character of Harvey's wife, Gilda--one commenter asked if any kind of wife/finance is really needed for Harvey.

Me, I'd argue that Gilda is a character who is absolutely essential to displaying the humanity and core tragedy of Harvey Dent. Unfortunately, she's made very few appearances in comics, which I think is a major reason why Two-Face is so often written as a one-note monster with a cheap gimmick.

That said, Gilda can be a problematic character. When she first appeared in the original Harvey Kent trilogy way back in the 40's, her character was mainly there to be the weeping, faithful, fragile love interest, the pure-hearted woman who could redeem Harvey through the sheer power of lurve.

Two-Face eventually returned, but Gilda did not. At least, not until 1980, after a thirty-six year absence, in the story I bring you today. In this overly-convoluted mystery entitled Double Jeopardy/Twice Dies the Batman, Gilda meets a new love interest with a shady past, and unwittingly becomes involved in a web of lies, murder, and revenge. Why can't there ever be webs of nice things, like puppies and pie?





Plastic surgery does not work that way behind the cut )



In the near future, I'll post the one other story to actually make use of this refreshing new direction for Gilda before she's relegated back to her previous characterization... or worse, in the case of the story from which she's now, regrettably, most famous.

So, last month I requested stories where Jim Gordon interacted with others beyond Batman and Robin, and this month [insanejournal.com profile] mullon expanded it to heroes outside of the Batfamily. Additionally, [insanejournal.com profile] lyraeinne requested scans of Dick and Clark interacting.
Well, as Tim, in the first story I ever read with him, strove to do, I'm gonna kill two birds with one stone by posting Worlds Finest Comics #269.
