In a previous post, we looked at the June Moone Enchantress' origin, in which she was basically a Sailor Moon type magical girl warrior in 1966, some decades before Naoko Takeuchi came up with the concept. Sadly, DC failed to realize what a cash cow this idea could turn into, and after three short stories, sent the character into limbo. So, how did the Enchantress go from magical girl to the insane witch we see in Justice League Dark? Here's the first step in that process.

Four pages of twelve from the lead story in Superman Family #204 (December 1980).

Introducing a webcomic for people who, like myself, enjoy seeing multiple characters of many fandoms living in an apartment together. It's spawned, I believe, two spinoffs.

Kind of like with the manly men comic, but with characters from

Pirates of the Carribean
Les Miserables
The Phantom of the Opera
Lord of the Rings
Good Omens
The Labyrinth
Sweeney Todd

And more recently, but just VERY recently, Doctor Who and House.

And to begin, we open with our four main characters:

James Norrington (PotC)
Javert (Les Mis)
Jareth (Labyrinth)
Erik (The Phantom of the Opera.... no seriously, that's who he is)

The thing about them... yes, if you realized, they are the villains and the failed in their own universes, coddled and well loved in form of a painfully adorable and hilarious webcomic.

Painfully adorable.  )

Graphic Novels, back in the mid 1980's, were a very new thing to America. Not having had the likes of Asterix, Lucky Luke or Tintin as a standard publication, they were used for some strange things, and some pretty awesome ones too, with the likes of the death of Captain Marvel (#1), the debut of the New Mutants (#5), ummm Dazzler: The Movie (#12)

Today we're looking at #9 in the series, the first appearance of Dave Cockrum's creator owned series, The Futurians.

The Future is Now... if the Future is 1983! )

I'm now three posts in to a short series on the Luna Bros book Ultra. The first one was all on the covers, the second was about Ultra's date with a lovely gentleman and this one is about the aftermath.

I think that I'm sticking to my idea that Ultra is a positive female character, stuck in a book that has no time for anything like that. My warning is that this post will contain examples of other characters "slut-shaming" and calling women "whores." Like I said at the start, it's a problematic book.

I'd expand on my feelings about tabloids and their horrid attitudes towards women, but it's been a long day and I can't do any more brain... stuff...

Images from Moon Knight #6 below the cut, showcasing the confusing situation that Mr. Marc Spector should have anticipated finding himself in...

Are... Are you real? )

It's got very little in common with the Charlie Huston series that I loved so much, but this incarnation of Moon Knight has been its own sort of entertaining thus far.
