Cringeworthy Comicbook Moments - Lisa

I've posted a lot of horrible things here as part of this series, but this is genuinely one of the worst comics that I have ever read. It's a propaganda comic that manages to play out like a satire of itself. Calling it cringeworthy is an understatement.

Trigger warning for child abuse.

The Dawn of the Serpent Society - Pt 1 - Stingrays and Serpents

In the past, I've mentioned that the Flash's "Rogues Gallery", only really became the bunch of... if not exactly friends, then vaguely companionable allies, in a retcon when Wally became the Flash.

However, I do love the concept of criminals not all being monstrous, antisocial loners, and of course, this being comics, someone else did it earlier.

And better yet, the group I have in mind debuted in a story featuring not only Ben Grimm, the ever lovin' Thing, but one of my favourite C-list superheroes (here depicted in chibi mode by the redoubtable Katie Cook)

Blackhawk: The Man in the Iron Mask (part 1)

I has posted this on old s_d but it bears restoring.

This epic tale starts in Military Comics #3 which introduces “Chop-Chop.” Why they chose this plot to go with that introduction, I will forever wonder. Chop-chop will spend most of the issue stabbing at any drama that might hit the page. This is listed as being by Will Eisner, it more likely by Bob Powell or Dick French. Art is by Chuck Cuidera.

Oh, and chop-chop gets his own post later, so save up your thoughts.

Also posted here (word for word this time because I am lazy).
