This is one of those covers that I've seen several times floating around the internet, and for good reason - it's Supergirl and Zatanna fighting over a yeti. It's one of those bizarre Bronze Age covers that does its job of making you wonder what the hell is going on. Did someone hit Supergirl and Zatanna with a love spell? Does the yeti himself have love powers? Do Kara and Zatanna both have a very specific fetish (no judgment)?

The answer, a more legible cover, and 7 pages of a 21 page story after the cut:Read more... )

That it is, according to current DC lroe, the birthday of one Richard John Grayson, who is perhaps better known by at least a few other names; Robin, Nightwing, Batman, Agent 37, Hunk Wonder, Acrobatic Ace, Boy Hostage

Since he first appeared in 1940, that means that, for a man of 76, he's looking pretty spry IMHO.


And in this blast from the past well 1970's Detective Comics 402, with art by Gil Kane and Vince Colletta (no less) we see young Mr Grayson, during his now erased college days, ponder anew what it means to be Robin as he considers;

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!

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).

Superman has met a lot of celebrities over the years, everyone from Jerry Lewis to JFK. But perhaps the strangest was his encounter with a thinly-disguised Kurt Vonnegut...

(Superman #274, April, 1974. Approx. 6 pages worth of panels from a 20-page story.)

So it goes... )

I was reading this old Thor graphic novel, with art by Paul Ryan and Vince Colletta, and you know what? It was totally sweet. Colletta is great. He was Gordon Lish to Kirby's Raymond Carver. His stuff is solid, readable, believable, and awesome. It's to the point. The expressions are strong. He doesn't waste your time, because in real life Colletta was a loanshark who had his studio in a whorehouse, and he did not have time to waste.

So here's to Vince Colletta, an interesting human being who produced fine art work and made comics a better place.

So it's gratuitous butt shots we're wanting, eh? I turn here to three panels from "Dazzler The Movie" for bringing sexy back:

There's more fanservice where that came from, but these are the best butt-specific bits. :D

[personal profile] sailorlibra requested Bronze Age Lois Lane. Here are 6 and a half pages from a 20-page story, "The Day Lois Lane Walked All Over Superman," from Superman Family #183, May-June 1977. It's also the story that gives us a rather famous image, one that I considered using as the preview image, but in the end I couldn't resist a lovely image from the Neal Adams-drawn cover, especially since it encapsulates part of the story I had to cut:

I-I'll do anything, Lois! J-just don't hurt me... )
