[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

First time post! I'm so excited!

7 pages & selected panels worth of content from a fun cracky 23 page comic that's notoriously known for making almost as much sense out-of-context as it does in-context.
This is the 1st issue. It only gets more insane from here )

Suggested tags: char: hellcat/patsy walker, char: iron man/tony stark, char: beast/hank mccoy, creator: kathryn immonen, creator: david lafuente, publisher: marvel comics

My love affair with S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 continues. They released a line art version of #1 as well as the full coloured version. Here's one page, with Leonid and the Night Machine* for a comparison.
This might not be the best page to make the comparison on, but it's the one that I liked the most, so... there. )
*Leonid vs. the Night Machine joins the list of "What I should call the band that I'll never have"

Tags: creator: dustin weaver, creator: jonathan hickman, publisher: marvel comics, title: s.h.i.e.l.d.
I put tags in for my last S.H.I.E.L.D. entry, but they haven't been done yet. Can a mod do them please?

A few weeks ago on NS_D, I talked about my plans about starting a blog about the kind of YA fantasy I grew up reading-- namely, stuff about witches and absolutely NO sparkly vampires. (BTW, that blog is up and going and I've already done a profile of Nico Minoru) Given that Zatanna is getting her own ongoing in May, I've been trying to get a good grasp of the character (who I really only knew from Identity Crisis before), which led me to the 4-issue mini "Come Together" that came out in 1993.

As a girl who cut her comics teeth on Sandman but has mostly been reading superhero comics the past couple years, let me say: Ooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh how I miss late-80s, early-90s DC/Vertigo art. A lot of European artists who hadn't given up on their European style, very gorgeous stuff! The story by Lee Marrs is okay, but the art by Esteban Maroto is phenomenal

Seriously. PRETTY. )

We've come a long way, baby! )
Requested tags: creator: lee marrs, creator: esteban maroto, char: zatanna zatara, year: 1993

Here's another three issues, the other half of the Astro City arc "The Confessor". Here's where it gets heavy.

And it has been... it has been good. )
