"I wanted to write about the Trump era, but I didn’t want to write, “Fascism sucks” or “Trump sucks.” That doesn’t get you anywhere. You’re taking your Twitter feed and putting it in panels. What I wanted to do is capture the emotion of the period, and the anxiety, the way Alan Moore captured the anxiety of the ‘80s or Kirby captured the anxiety of the ‘70s or even Lee captured the optimism of the ‘60s; to capture the feeling, more than the politics. That’s what interests me. That’s how you make something that’s just not a polemic. After page four, the whole thing goes into a 9-panel grid, and it’s to give you a sense of that claustrophobia. To give you a sense of what it is to be trapped, not only in the themes and the words, but in the actual panel structure. He’s trapped behind those bars we had in Omega Men, and how does he break out?"

In the 1980s and 90s, the Superman comics were undergoing something of a refit, with creators such as John Byrne (who has become contraversial since for different reasons) being one of the architects of the post-Crisis Superman side of things.

Part of that change came in the form of this baffling two part story, where DC in their wisdom thought that it would be a good idea to have Superman and Big Barda getting mindcontrolled into taking part in porn films as part of an exiled New God's scheme to finance his future invasion of Apokolips.

I'm 100% serious.

Seeing as the nu52 version of these events has just been posted, I felt it would be relevant to show how they originally transpired to clarify some details concerning them. No new content after this line!

This story was advertised as the origin of Orion and Mr. Miracle. What they don't tell you is that it's essentially Highfather's origin too, from when he was known as "Izaya the Inheritor" (what does he inherit? That's a plot point.)

Geoff Johns: Much like Wonder Woman, who I've had an epiphany about over the last year or so, the same thing happened with the New Gods when I went back and reread all these New Gods comics, and Mister Miracle comics -- I knew I wanted to bring the New Gods into this, with Darkseid and Grail and Anti-Monitor, but when I was reading them all, I said, "Which one is going to be a thorn in Darkseid's side the most?" Originally I thought it was Orion. But actually, it's not Orion -- it's Scott. The reason it's Scott is because if you look at what Darkseid wants, he wants his will imposed over everything. If there's one thing that keeps slipping through his fingers -- one soul, one person that keeps escaping his grasp -- he's going to notice that, and it's going to ultimately become an annoyance to him. And if that one thing starts to affect other things, it's going to be a problem. So if Scott is someone who embodies free will -- he's all about escape, that's his whole thing. He is the ultimate protagonist against the antagonist of Darkseid. "Oh, it's not Orion at all, it's Mister Miracle -- let me get more into Mister Miracle." As I got more into that character, I fell in love with that character.

A lot of us preferred the old pre-The Killing Joke Joker of the 70s and most of the 80s. Unlike the version since, there was so much variety in the types of stories you could do with him. You could do dark. You could do comedy. You could do dark comedy. It was whatever the writers felt like doing, that day.

Here's a story that was published the same day as The Killing Joke. The Joker has been contracted to kill the JLI. As this is the BWAHAHA era of the Justice League, you can guess how well that's going to go.




A cold, hard look into the terror and violence of insanity. Or something.

Jack "King" Kirby would have been 96 on August 28th and all over the internet comic creators are celebrating a man who was one of the architects of comics as we know them in the West.

It would behoove scans_daily to do the same, I think (a little late in my tine zone, but still valid in the US)
