So earlier today, [profile] sandoz_izcariot posted this snippet from New Mutants #21 which featured some horribly dated references. Well, Bruce Wayne and Alfred aren't going to let themselves be outdone, so they'll show us how to date your comic in one easy step. )

Hey guys. I was a member of the old community for quite some time but just never got around to joining the new one until now. Anyway for my first post at Daily_Scans I thought I'd share one of the most underrated superhero parodies ever created. I speak of "The Mighty Magnor" by Mark Evanier and Sergio Aragones.

First off a little background about the era this book came from. The year is 1993; Bill Clinton has just taken office, Friends won't hit television airwaves for another year, and American comics are in the middle of an unsustainable bubble. The extra-large 30 page first issue of this book featured a rather unique gimmick, the front cover actually folded out like a pop-up book revealing a little diorama. The success of the first round of Image Comic releases have caused dozens new companies to launch their own line of superhero books. New superhero universes were popping up on a weekly basis. Meanwhile across the industry there was a push to sell comics as collectors items, rather than reading material. (In fact QVC was actually selling mint autograph copies of this very comic for $34 plus shipping and handling.)

In the middle of this age of greed and hubris comes the tale of two would be creators and their alien friend.

Sadly you can't scan the pop-up cover (Not dial-up friendly) )

I don't remember ever seeing this posted here or on the old s_d, so I thought I'd post it.



This 40-page comic is from the late 1990s and it's called "Sergio Aragones destroys DC". It was written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Sergio Aragones. Nine full-page scans and additional panels behind the cut.
