OK gang, it's time for LOSH #23, "Aftermath," and you all know what THAT means....

On the upside, we do get lovely Kevin Maguire art for Aftermath. If you've ever wanted to see what Maguire could do with Bouncing Boy - and if not, why not?!? - this ish is your chance.

Everything since the crash is a cauchemar. )

And that's it until some other creator decides to reopen the toybox. Long Live the Legion!

Was cleaning up a closet last weekend and came upon my cache of original Teen Titans floppies. Here's a little treat from 1972, "Through These Doors Pass the Bravest Titans of Them All," or as I like to think of it, "That time Donna shaved her head and crossdressed for justice!" I've got six pages of an 18-page story, and therefore am cutting the Mal sequence down to a mere preview image.

That's Mal having a flashback to a childhood beat-down, to explain his heretofore unheard-of fear of wide open spaces, which he must overcome in order to repair a lunar landing guidance module.

Say what, now? )

So there you go - not bad for an ish where nobody even makes it into costume!

In Today's segment, we take a look at the time Superman used timetravel to screw over a Native American who had a legitimate claim to the land Metropolis is built on...

Triggerwarning for old timey racism.

There was a post here earlier about how some people robbed a special needs man of his extensive Superman collection. I'm glad to report that there's a happy ending; the thieves were caught and arrested and the man got his collection back. The extras that he received from fans looking to replenish his collection he's decided to donate to a charity.

More here.

For legality...

When the U.S. version of Dennis the Menace became popular, many comic companies jumped on the bandwagon. But Toby Press, the publisher that brought you Jon Juan, the Super Lover, decided to take it one step beyond.

Ollie Orwell was a 6-year-old kid from an unnamed Midwestern city. He was a perfectly ordinary kid until he discovered a tattered magical cape in his attic. The cape gave him all of Superman's powers. Now, if he was older and more responsible, Ollie probably would have become a superhero. But Ollie wasn't mature enough to think through on the consequences of his actions, so he became known as the Super-Brat.

That's right - Ollie Orwell was Dennis the Menace - with Superpowers.

He appeared in four issues of Super-Brat comic. Toby Press went under before the 5th issue could be published. Charlton Comics (out of all companies) bought the rights to some of Toby's titles, including Super-Brat. Charlton published the 5th issue as Li'l Genius #1. In the next issue of Li'l Genius, the writers revamped Ollie and took away his magic cape and made him just plain old Dennis the Menace proxy.

But those stories are boring, so I'm going to post scans from the Super-Brat era.

The following story was originally published in Super-Brat #2. Writer unknown, art by Harry Betancourt.
Ollie tries to get a puppy. That... does not go over well (6 pages under the cut) )

Geez!

I particularly like how Marvel Boy's reaction and the 'narrator' of the caption boxes all fit so well into the lack of context.

Sometimes, the Silver Age has an astonishing sense of foreshadowing.

Like Superboy didn't have absolute power already )

[personal profile] sailorlibra requested Bronze Age Lois Lane. Here are 6 and a half pages from a 20-page story, "The Day Lois Lane Walked All Over Superman," from Superman Family #183, May-June 1977. It's also the story that gives us a rather famous image, one that I considered using as the preview image, but in the end I couldn't resist a lovely image from the Neal Adams-drawn cover, especially since it encapsulates part of the story I had to cut:


I-I'll do anything, Lois! J-just don't hurt me... )
Whatta ya think, gang? Cracky enough for ya?
