A long ago posting, and a favourite of mine, to add to the Anniversary celebrations.

A sample of the "Dick Grayson (and therefor Robin) goes back to the circus" stories that DC used to love so much... And I know I did too.

I know that when he was in the Titans Dick got used to be carried through the air by Starfire, but honestly....



It's a purely fun blast from the past from DC Comics Presents #31, written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez with inks from Dick Giordano (Always a killer combination for classic DC characters) - Where Superman hoists an elephant, Robin ends up in a cage and Jimmy and Lois show why Clark really IS the brains of the Daily Planet's star trio.

A few of the scans aren't the greatest quality because it's an old, old comic now!

Firestorm's first comic book series kind of turned into a limited series when one of the periodic industry downturns hit DC and they had to axe a bunch of titles. But the concept and design of the character were pretty cool, so it was decided to give the character another shot.

To start "pushing" the character, the folks at DC decided to have him guest star with Superman in "DC Comics Presents", the "Superman teams up with people" book.



Five and two-thirds pages from DC Comics Presents #17 "The Ice Slaves of Killer Frost!"

I need fire, to melt the frozen heart within me )

I was wondering what to post for this tribute, it's not like there's a dearth of material, and I posted the Batman/Vampire stuff before, but then I remembered one particular story which might be of special interest on s_d, from Gentleman Gene's run on Wonder Woman.

Amongst his many other achievements is one that might go unnoticed; the 1982 introduction of the first major change to Wonder Woman's costume (other than her depowered civvies era) in... well, ever.

It was published, of all places as a comic within a comic within DC Comics Presents #41 (Superman teams up with the Joker in a story that's not without it's charms, but isn't directly relevant here)

What might the W stand for do you think? )

This is one of the stories that hold a deep place in my heart. I knew nothing about the Crimson Avenger before this since he's only mentioned very rarely in DC these days. In current continuity he's considered one of the first DC heroes to show up in the "modern day" inspiring the later Justice Society and Justice League.

Lord knows if it's still in continuity, I think it is, but he's fought alongside the Seven Soldier of Victory and while originally just a classy suit wearing character he later donned some superhero duds which kinda look silly but they do remind me of the Dan Garret Blue Beetle so I can't call them awful. After his stint with the Seven Soldiers of Victory he was transported to the near present roughly the time Infinity Inc started to show up I believe.

Still it's also a good example of a backup story being so much cooler than the front or main story and I hope you folks love it.

DC Comics Presents #38

Just under 2 and 2/3 pages from an 8 page story.

[personal profile] werehawk requested scans of Ambush Bug meeting the Substitute Heroes, in DC Comics Presents #59 from July 1983. It's a 23 page story, which my calculator says gives me 7 2/3 pages to play with, but even so, cutting this baby down was hard.



And it goes a little something like this. )

By the way, if you're thinking the art looks a little different from Keith Giffen's usual output of the era, note that there's a text box on the first page saying the ish is dedicated to original Superman artist Joe Shuster. So there's some conscious mimicry going on there.

Tagapalooza, and this will be fun, because most of the Subs have no tags:

char: ambush bug/irwin schwab, char: antennae lad, char: chlorophyll kid/ral benem, char: color kid/ulu vakk, char: double header/frenk & dyvud retzun, char: fire lad/staq mavlen, char: infectious lass/drura sehpt, char: polar boy/brek bannin, char: stone boy/dag wentim, char: superman/kal-el/clark kent, creator: keith giffen, creator: kurt schaffenberger, creator: paul levitz, group: legion of substitute heroes, in-joke: funny, publisher: dc comics, title: dc comics presents

...as discussed here

To keep you going until the other side of the cut just speculate on what THIS might be all about when bad guys line up against the Teen Wonder...



This is written by Mike W Barr in 1983, in "old school" mode, which means it's a story with a beginning a middle and an end, "done in one", with no need for angst or ghastly foreshadowing. It's also pencilled by Curt "I probably drew Superman more often professionally than anyone else in HISTORY" Swan so drink it up, it's some goooood stuff!
Also starring the Ductile Detective! )

Someone who has just done me a brilliant sketchcard (which you'll see soon enough, believe me it's a thing of utter beauty) mentioned he'd like to see a sample of the "Robin goes back to the circus" stories that we've posted here and on S_D 1.0, so this repost from there is for Sonny, a thoroughly nice guy who I hope will see fit to join us here if he's interested.

I know that when he was in the Titans Dick got used to be carried through the air by Starfire, but honestly....

Not so much "Not Dial-up friendly" but "Actively dial-up hostile".
