Given the story focus in the end of this arc was pretty much not on Superman, at least directly, I'm not sure if this really counts as a Dude in Distress post... But hey, Ninja Fighting!

7 1/3 pages from a 22 page story. Man, cutting this one was hard. REALLY. HARD. I loved this story so much.

If you can't beat 'em, guilt 'em! )

Can't believe I didn't think of this before for "Dudes in Distress Week"

Technically not a comic but still something I hope the community will enjoy as it is one of my favorite Disney moments.

Ah Thunderbirds... a staple of children's viewing for many decades here in the UK.

Gerry Anderson (still going strong at 82, gawdbless him) never saw the fact he used marionettes in his work as being a disadvantage.

Okay they're a little wooden, but they are cute guys in uniform! )

And how could I overlook the definitive UK Dude in Distress )

Cupcake POW!, a webcomic Jody Houser, is a comic created especially for the ladies. Four panel pages tell stories you may or may not be expecting.

A vaild point )

We last had a new issue of "The Twelve" back in 2008, so all the previous posts died with Scans Daily 1.0. Someone whose collection is more organized than mine might want to do a quick highlights post.

But now at last #9 of 12 is out, so let's recap the basic premise for new fans and the folks who just didn't read it before. "The Twelve" begins in 1945, close to V-E Day. Twelve superheroes (for varying values of "super" and "Hero") are assigned to investigate a secret Nazi research facility and shut it down. It turns out to be a trap. The heroes are overcome and placed into suspended animation for some future plan.

In the 21st Century, the suspended animation chambers are found. It's decided to wake the sleepers, on the grounds that Captain America worked out great, plus the general in charge isn't too impressed with the moral grayness of some modern supertypes.

Yeah. All the time-lost people have difficulty adjusting to living in the future, be it a family that's aged and died, changes in social attitudes, or their own personal demons. Our narrator is the Phantom Reporter, who is blessed with no special abilities but is a pretty good writer.

The cover spotlight is on the Blue Blade, a swashbuckling fellow with no known powers, who originally intended to use his costumed persona to launch an entertainment career. Blue Blade's newfound celebrity has given him his own TV show, but his standup routine was stale in the 1940s, so he's looking for ways to spice up the show. One of these ideas is allowing the granddaughter of Electro the robot's inventor to repair the old mechanism.

Return with me now to those thrilling days of yesteryear (2008) )

I first found out from @iFanboy, (and indulged in some jubilant air-punching as I did so) that the winner of Top Cow Pilot Season 2011 was The Beauty.

Modern society is obsessed with outward beauty. What if there was a way to guarantee you could become more and more beautiful every day? What if it was contagious? In the world of The Beauty, physical perfection is attainable and while the mass majority of the population has taken advantage of it, Detectives Foster and Vaughn will soon discover it comes with a terrible price.
Writer/artist JEREMY HAUN (Detective Comics, Artifacts) and co-writer JASON A. HURLEY offer up a startling reflection on the cost of looking good in this procedural science fiction tale.

I read it on my tab, as well as highly-rated, but not that good, actually Theory of Everything (but I should probably read that one again). The Beauty was a good first issue that took a decent premise and made an interesting story around it.

The first 3 pages )

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 )
