There was a request for more Black Orchid, and I'm happy to oblige. Here's her first appearance, from Adventure Comics #428, 1973.
(5 pages from a 16-page story)

Welcome, s_d, to the tale of a sweet, modest little romance that bloomed in the background of the Big Universe Saving plots of the 1980s Legion of Super-Heroes. It's the story of a new-agey crystal girl and her mineral balance.



Blok and the White Witch.

We all change. That's what gives us life. )

So now they're both on inactive status. But maybe someday they'll rejoin the Legion, and be cute and lighthearted again. Hope springs eternal, right?

Last ish of the rebooted Adventure Comics, following the travails of the Legion Academy's newest class. Four pages, in which the rookies find out just what it takes to even be considered for Legion membership.

When last we left our wannabees heroes, Legion Academy instructors Duplicate Girl, Night Girl and Bouncing Boy found Legion of Super-Villians charter member Cosmic King (analogue to Chemical King or Element Lad, not Cosmic Boy) invading the empty Legion HQ, and were soundly trounced. Rookies Comet Queen, Chemical Kid and Dragonwing caught the takedown and moved in for the rescue...

...and are soundly trounced themselves in the first three pages. )

Picked up Adventure Comics #528 today, still following the adventures of the current crop of Legion Academy students and teachers. It's not a big blockbuster issue, just connective tissue wrapping up a little old business and bringing the Academy folks into the current big Legion of Super-Heroes/Legion of Super-Villains donnybrook. But I did find one or two nuggets of mild interest, and so am posting a cover preview and two panels here.



Graduation Day )

This is one of those jobbies with two sets of pencillers/inkers, which makes for a jarring transition about halfway through the ish. Of the two I think I prefer the first section, which according to the signature on the splash page was pencilled by Geraldo Borges.

My LCS didn't have this in stock, so a couple of pages, courtesy of CBR from their preview as Phil Jimenez.

As it's a new comic this week, I'll stick to the two page rule, it seems only fair,

But since covers don't count... That remains an awesome outfit for Dragonwing...



Also note in the bottom left box is the Legion's resident medic Dr Gym'll (He makes Bones McCoy look like little Miss Mary Sunshine, but he's a great character) with Variable Lad.

Now THAT'S sci-fi looking! )

Mr Jimenez does seriously kick arse work on this title

And this is also from CBR, a cover variant for New Mutants #25 (New creative team, new direction, etc etc) just because I think it's pretty!

The gangs all here... and then some! )

In keeping with the theme of [personal profile] superfangirl1's Adventure 517 post, I thought I'd point out that Cosmic Boy suddenly has an interesting addition to how they represent his powerset.

All things considered, maybe they should've stuck with just the magno-rings? )

Snarkers, start your engines. Riffing commences in 3...2...1.... XD

1 page, that makes 5 posted from a 20-page story.

There is no in-comm tag for co-penciler Marlo Alquiza or inker Travis Lanham, if a mod wouldn't mind adding them?

Wrapping up the scans of Adventure Comic #417 with 4 1/3 pages from the thirteen page Supergirl story, "All Men Are But Slaves!"



This scene does not appear in the story.

One of the cool things about DC's long and varied history (and habit of buying other companies' characters) is that you can find almost any kind of oddball character type if you just look hard enough. For example, DC made a stab at the magical girl subtype years before such characters suddenly became popular in America. These scans of "The Enchantress of Terror Castle" are from Adventure Comics #417, (3 pages of 9), but it's a reprint from Strange Adventures #187 (April 1966.) Incidentally, the first Japanese magical girl anime and manga began appearing in 1966 too, a case of congruent evolution....

Really, it's clearly in the subgenre. )

That just leaves the Supergirl story from this issue unscanned...

So Adventure Comics 11, out this week, had a Robinson backup concerning "Mon-El's final task!"

Which was a bit more surprising than expected. )

By request, the Vigilante story from Adventure Comics #417, 3 1/3 pages of 10.

This is the Golden Age Vigilante, but a Silver Age edging into Bronze Age story--his first appearance since being reintroduced in JLA #78-79 with the other members of the Seven Soldiers of Victory.

This is not shaping up to be one of his better days. )

Your thoughts and comments?

If there's interest, there's two more stories in this issue, a Supergirl tale with gender!fail, and DC's first attempt at the magical girl subgenre. Anyone want to see either of those?

In honor of the late great Frank Frazetta, here's a couple of pages (2 of 6) of one of his "Shining Knight" stories. This was a reprint in "Adventure Comics" #417 (March 1972) but originally appeared in Adventure Comics #161 (February 1951).
