True, the spoof newspaper headline above refers to certain comics becoming "underground" as in "illegal" (this being when Dr. Wertham and friends were trying to accomplish precisely that), as opposed to "countercultural." Even so, actual underground comix creators such as R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman have credited Mad, in its original comic-book format (1952-1954), as a major influence on their work. As Spiegelman put it in his Breakdowns anthology, "Mad warped a generation. In the bland American 1950s [...] [i]t was saying: 'The media--the whole damn adult world--is lying to you...and we here at Mad are part of the media!'"

Dig, dig, dig! )

A repost from s_d 1.0.

If you haven't met them before, meet Knight Watchman and Kid Galahad.

Back in the 90's when Batman was wallowing in his own angst, and the angst of anyone within 200 miles, and was, essentially, a self righteous aggravating pain the the Batcave, there were two places left to enjoy his adventures. The first, obviously, was Batman the Animated Series. The second was the Big Bang comics series of entirely blatant, but respectfully affectionate, homages to the glories of the Golden and Silver ages.

Pseudo Golden Age nuttiness under the cut! )

Greetings, Mortals!

Remember the classic 60s theme of Batman and Robin? Here's a taste of how it would look if it was meant for the bat-movies of Christopher Nolan.

Since proteus_lives made posts of Marvel parody themselves, as well as computer trouble is keeping me away from my only paying job that I have two days a week for, I thought I should make a post (for a Long time since that X-Factor post) with a Simpson's comic parody from the very first issue of SImpsons Super Spectacular, with the take of....EVIL COUNTERPARTS!!! )
