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.

One of my favorite comic book deaths, probably because it was my first.

From Superboy #203, written by Cary Bates, art by Mike Grell.

I've chosen not to reproduce the first 13 or so pages of this comic, mainly just to keep the page count legal. So, a quick summary of the events up until now.

The story begins with several uniformed invaders entering Legion headquarters, attempting to access the Legion museum. All are thwarted save one, who turns out to be Element Lad. That's right, it's a Legion training exercise--but there should have been a Legionnaire on duty in the museum. It turns out that Invisible Kid was on duty, but he appears collapsing on the floor.

They take him to the infirmary and after a mento scan then find that he was more or less shirking his duties, as he was visiting another dimension at the time to see his up to now unknown girlfriend Myla. Her dimension only seems accessible to Invisible Kid, as his powers allow him to visit the dimension. Well, current Legion leader Mon-El is pissed, and forbids him from turning invisible for a week. Invisible Kid isn't happy, but accepts his punishment. He plans to return to the dimension after his punishment is over and ask Myla to be his wife.

On with the story )

One of the reasons I've always loved this story is seeing just how much of a bad ass Validus really was. He pretty much punked the Legion out without breaking a sweat. I don't think he's given this sort of treatment anymore.

There was a request for scans from Babs' days as a Congresswoman. Here's a particularly cracky tale from Batman Family #1, 1975. The upcoming U.S. Bicentennial was all over the media, and comics were no exception...

*Note it is not actually my birthday. It is in June but I won't be around.

The current series of Green Arrow/Black Canary leaves much to be desired, so I went looking for Ollie and Dinah in happier times, and there is a lot of it from the Grell run (and yes, unhappy times and torture and Ollie being a big man-child as he can be). I'm posting here some scans of some of one of my favorite features of the Grell run, that is, the clear passage of time as marked by Ollie's birthdays.

There are 10 scans, from Longbow Hunters #1, Green Arrow #10, #21, #51, and #63. The Longbow Hunters is in trade, alas the others are not.

Happy Birthday all you June babies!
