Warning: Contains more images than I've ever included in a single post before!

Question - What do Alex Ross, Alex Maleev, Sara Pichelli, Alan Davis, Pascal Campion, Pasqual Ferry, Joe Quinones, Simone Bianchi, Dave Dorman, Stan Sakai, Mike McKone, Dale Keown, Stephanie Hans, David Peterson, Mike Mayhew, Mike Deodato, Mark Brooks, John Tyler Christopher, Greg Land, John Cassady, Jenny Frison, Amanda Conner, Skottie Young and Bob McLeod have in common THIS WEEK?

Answer - They ALL have variant covers of Star Wars #1 coming out... and that's not even all of them!

The release of Star Wars #1 from Marvel Comics this week is perhaps the publishing coup of the year, and you certainly can't say that Marvel and Disney and Lucasfilm haven't gone all out with the covers!

This is the main release cover...

Which is fine, and classic, and apporpriate and all///

but that's not even scraping the surface )

You know, I was thinking after my last post on this topic that I had sort of cheated.

Now don't get me wrong, Cypher's powers would be fascinating, and useful, and generally awesome in a quiet sort of a way, but it, like all the powers I was thinking of, were those that would be USEFUL to me in my life - Teleportation would save on travel costs, Telekinesis would just be so functionally useful I don't even know where to start... Another power I had pondered was the ability to split into multiple selves like Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel/Triad/Duplicate Damsel (Good lord, she has more names than selves!). which would also have many uses.. though if I had two jobs I might run into tax issues... but that's overthinking things a bit.

No, I realised that I also had a power I wanted to have for FUN.... flight would be at the top of that list if I didn't have it included in the power I was thinking of... What power is that, well here's a clue (if you have't already read the tags)

It's not easy being green, but it CAN be fun )

So last issue, Stargirl and Animal Man followed Adam Strange to the site of the alien abduction, where they were attacked by aliens and joined by Martian Manhunter and Green Arrow. The aliens unleash... something... and now they have to fight it.

But they have to fight it under cover of this cut. )

Justice League United 0 came out today, reintroducing Adam Strange to the nuDC universe (and also introducing Equinox, but her pages are pretty boring and don't tell us anything about her character yet).

Just one page below )

Something Dan DiDio said in September has blended with something from THE FINAL NIGHT.

"Heroes shouldn’t have happy personal lives. They are committed to being that person and committed to defending others at the sacrifice of their own personal interests.

That’s very important and something we reinforced. People in the Bat family their personal lives basically suck. Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon and Kathy Kane. It’s wonderful that they try to establish personal lives, but it’s equally important that they set them aside. That is our mandate, that is our edict and that is our stand."

Us and everyone else )

The treatment of Superboy by Superman has been the cause of some disquiet amongst fans.

So leave it to the fans to come up with a creative alternative;

Since Superman won't interact with Suprboy perhaps another member of the JLA should, and who SHOULD have a Titan representative, but doesn't?

It almost makes you... Wonder )

Plus news on the YJ cartoon from as close to a horse's mouth as we have )

I've been going through my comics and inventorying them and selecting what to sell...so I've come across lots of stuff, lately. Here's one I forgot about.

So the year was 2001 and the title was "Fantastic Four: Bigtown". The conceit of this "What If..." story is a simple one. What if Tony Stark and Reed Richards actually went ahead and changed the world? The results are....not what you'd expect.

The Bloodlines conclude with this annual! We head back to L.E.G.I.O.N (they're the folks who first investigated the Parasite ship in the Lobo Annual via sending Lob and Layla to find out what was up).

So...just where did these Parasites come from anyway?

18 pages of a 55 page story.

His name is Pax and his world has seen better... )

So, [personal profile] protogarrett asked for someone to post the Teen Titans taking on Doctor Light, I was going to post it later in my History of Mia scans, because this is her first mission as a Teen Titan. But whatever, I'm fine with posting it sooner. So here we go.

20 pages from 3 issues )

From TV Tropes' Flash character page:

It Makes Sense In Context: One villain's description of his encounter with Bart: "And then he caught all the grenades, and then he took them away, and then he brought me a fish, and then he pulled me into my pocket, and then he made me eat a bracelet, and then he..."

Does anyone know the issue this can be found in? Sounds like something from the early-mid Impulse-era (so say, 1994-1998)

In return, one-and-a-half pages from JLA: World Without Grown-Ups.
