For those who don't know, Two-Face was set to appear in the old Batman television show. Harlan Ellison even wrote up a treatment for it. Unfortunately, it never saw the light of day. There's more on it here.

Recently however DC has published the story in comic format using Ellison's original treatment as the basis. Four pages from it are below.

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! )

As the sun sets (or rises depending on time difference) on scans_daily's "Dude in Distress Week" (and thank you to the mods for it and to everyone who contributed such great issues), I thought I'd make a couple of posts featuring my favourites... First post will be some commissions, the second post will be some classic moments from the past, and the third will be my nomination for perfect "Dude in Distress" issue. And yes, I should probably apologise in advance for the sheer Robin-centricity of them, but frankly you should know me better by now! :D If cute guys in pixie boots aren't you're thing, please feel free to skip them all.

Like comics... but not! )

Firestorm's first comic book series kind of turned into a limited series when one of the periodic industry downturns hit DC and they had to axe a bunch of titles. But the concept and design of the character were pretty cool, so it was decided to give the character another shot.

To start "pushing" the character, the folks at DC decided to have him guest star with Superman in "DC Comics Presents", the "Superman teams up with people" book.



Five and two-thirds pages from DC Comics Presents #17 "The Ice Slaves of Killer Frost!"

I need fire, to melt the frozen heart within me )

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! )

Sorry for the delay. On this very special edition of Marvel/DC mash-up, we have the two greatest magicians of their respective houses, Drs. Strange and Fate (and a little Charles Xavier via secret ID thrown in for good measure). Join us for this (slightly) crossover-plot relevant issue of...

Continuing with our celebration of holiday times, we're only looking at one story today, featuring Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes!
There's Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez art!

One story from DC Special Series #21 )

Tomorrow: More shorts! These ones are all about Gotham City!

Chances are that if you owned ANY DC licensed merchandise in the late 70's or early 80's it either featured art by, or based on, work done by Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez and Dick Giordano, two stalwarts of the organisation, who produced acres of top notch, lovely licensing art.

The art would be used from notepads to action figures, from t-shirts to underoos, and so had to be both simple and stylish, easily reproduced and instantly recognisable. They could hardly have asked for better!

The attached pics are scanned as best I can, and hopefully might bring a little happiness to your desktop should you wish to tweak them that way.

A really sweet little story by George Perez and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez that I read the other day and thought y'all might like.


Collected, along with many other cool stories, in the pretty Wonder Woman: Destiny Calling.

About a week ago I did a post about, where I expressed some opinions about the general evolution of fight scenes in comic books and the difficulties in having two established characters face off in a fight. I also posted some scenes which I intended to exemplify different ways to fail in writing a good fight scene, but I promised to later do a post in which I would focus on fights where a character is essentially squashed by a superior opponent and still managing to come off relatively strong. I doubt that it will come to a huge surprise to anyone that the character squashed in these scenes will be Batman, but I'm certain you all also understand that we all have our dangerous obsessions, which limit our ability to enjoy normal. Anyway, to the scans themselves.

Someone who has just done me a brilliant sketchcard (which you'll see soon enough, believe me it's a thing of utter beauty) mentioned he'd like to see a sample of the "Robin goes back to the circus" stories that we've posted here and on S_D 1.0, so this repost from there is for Sonny, a thoroughly nice guy who I hope will see fit to join us here if he's interested.

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 battles a half-and-half hermaphrodite 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!



Not so much "Not Dial-up friendly" but "Actively dial-up hostile".

My very first post. I thought it would be appropriate to contribute to the community what I consider to be the perfect moment of the first comic that caught and held my interest, DC's Atari Force (Two)

Really ... would that be so hard? )

Despite the fact that these scans are hilarious, I also think they really represent what a good Justice League is all about. I'll go into detail after the pictures. This is from JLA: The Hypothetical Woman, written by Gail Simone (which would explain why it is so awesome) with art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez.
