Some other heroes are not so lucky!




Warning for both ableist and racist language and some perhaps not terribly sensitive handling of Native American culture. (I say this as the whitest of white folks, so do not feel qualified to properly judge such things, I may be judging too harshly)

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #23 has two back-up stories by Mark Bagley. The first one is a re-do of AMAZING FANTASY #15, with story by Gerry Conway and art by Mark Bagley. The story is called "My Science Project" which has a lot -but not all- the dialog from the original story.

The second back up story is a six page "Saga of the Serpent Crown" story where the Celestials almost but not quite end the world.

Three pages after the cut )

Making Falcon partners with Captain America was a good idea. Trying to discuss race relations in a superhero comic in the 1970s was also a good idea. Yet, the same thing happened to Falcon *and* Sam Wilson a lot: An African-American character would call him a "sellout" and other nasty names.

Two pages from CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON #151.

Did anyone read that Harriet Beecher Stowe novel? )

A long ago posting, and a favourite of mine, to add to the Anniversary celebrations.

A sample of the "Dick Grayson (and therefor Robin) goes back to the circus" stories that DC used to love so much... And I know I did too.

I know that when he was in the Titans Dick got used to be carried through the air by Starfire, but honestly....



It's a purely fun blast from the past from DC Comics Presents #31, written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez with inks from Dick Giordano (Always a killer combination for classic DC characters) - Where Superman hoists an elephant, Robin ends up in a cage and Jimmy and Lois show why Clark really IS the brains of the Daily Planet's star trio.

A few of the scans aren't the greatest quality because it's an old, old comic now!

Giddy up Superman! )

With the upcoming release of The Amazing Spider-Man on DVD, and news of the sequel due out in 2014, let's take a look back at what might be the plot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (or at least its sequel.)

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!
