Some EXTREMELY cute model sheets... Seriously... the cute... it's at near lethal intensity|
Back in the days of... the other place... I posted some scans from DC's 1980's Style guide featuring stellar linework from Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. When tidying up some old discs I had lying around I discovered I had many more of these than I thought.
I covered the Batfamily in the first go-round, and will deal with Wonder Woman, Superman and some other heroes in due time, but at the end of the disc were these INSANELY cute images of....

Bring on the Clowns!|
On a related note, are there are any EC/Creepy stories that I posted on the original scans_daily that you'd like to see reposted?

Emma Frost hates Banshee!|
So this being unofficial Gen X Week, I was thinking about what to post. Well, there are the kids, but I'm sure they'll be well-covered. As for the adult supervision, we only have Emma Frost and Sean Cassidy. Now, with them being the only possible heterosexual pairing in their age group, you'd think there'd be some UST there.
Or Emma Frost could utterly loathe Banshee with the force of a thousand Sentries. Whichever works.
( This will end in tears. )

one page from Action Comics #721|
I laughed at this and thought of you guys. From Action Comics #721 (page 14), Jimmy Olsen's getting bombarded by fangirls for working at the WGBS station as a news reporter for a time.
( clicky! )

Katie Power cuteness!|
This is my 1st post here, so I hope this is all legal. I didn't find any of these here in s_d 2.0, but I'm not sure about the original.
I just read "X-Men and Power Pack: The Power of X" and had to share some cute scans.

Superman in an apron! I repeat: SUPERMAN IN AN APRON!|
Since re-posting our lost posts is all the rage these days, here goes one story I had found that I think deserves to be remembered. Namely, the time that Superman proved that, for all his power, he was complete and utter fail as a 1940s-era homemaker.
Also, he wears an apron.
Great Rao! How did it ever come to this!?

Mr. T and the T-Force Issue #1!|
I went to my lcs on a mission to procure something to share with the ressurected Scans Daily. I have to say I came back more than victorious. For I now can share with you...

|I'm still putting together all my Emplate scans for GenX week, but I ran across this and felt it should be shared, because interaction between Emma and Sean amuses me to no end.|
Right after Paige and Jono accidentally blew up the girl's dorm, all the girls were moved into Emma's sanctum, while Emma moved in with Sean. This is the result:

|Didn't know it'd be against the rules on noscans_daily, though since it is I'll just post this here, hopefully not breaking any rules. The company that made the opening sequence for the Watchmen movie has put it(the sequence) up online(spoilers, obviously): http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/article/the-watchmen-opening-credits-are-online|

I have returned...|
So uh, hey guys. One day when I went to check on S_D it was just kind of gone, and it's taken me some time to find this new place. I don't think I have my old posts saved, which kind of makes me sad. But anyway, it's good to see a new place up and running.
Hoping this place sticks around.

Marvel Holiday Special 2005 - Yes, Virginia, There is a SANTRON|
Guys, I really hate the awkward InsaneJournal posting format, and although I can finally insert images I can't control the size, so I'm putting this issue up at my journal. This is a repost basically straight from the archive.
It's a complete story, but there are three stories in the Holiday special, over a hundred pages. They're all pure fluff, and this one is the best.

It's not in tthe Superdictionary...but it'll do.|
Two consecutive panels from the 40s:
I know, it’s not much. I just think it’s interesting that two slurs for homosexuals are in two consecutive panels. Were they in use then? All I can do is smile, for I am trying my best to sound gay, but you can probably tell my heart isn't in it.

X-Men: Divided We Stand #1: Home|
From X-Men: Divided We Stand #1, I bring you the only story in the bunch that I find continues to stand up well: Nezheno's story, "Home". I find that this character has seriously grown on me.
8 scans (which should come in under the limit, since the issue is oversized), not particularly dial-up friendly.

Ralph Dibny: Not quite the world's greatest detective.|
Or, "That's no paraplegic, that's a MAN, baby!" (Yes, my sense of humor is just a wee bit dark. Why do you ask?)
4 scans from 52, Week 41. I found a bunch of 52s and 52: World War issues at a book sale this weekend, and may be posting more from them as time goes on and I find more crack contained therein.

When Wondy was Awesome, part 3 (Chalk Drawings)|
This next is not actually a story about Diana herself, but rather a story about the people around her and the world she lives in. That's not uncommon in a general sense, but it's actually relatively rare with Diana - you just don't get stories about Themyscira or a day in the life of Philippus the way you get stories about Gotham or the investigative exploits of Lois Lane. So this, the story of tertiary cast member Lucy Spears, is a bit of a rare gem in that sense.
It's also a rare gem in many other senses, as you'll see once you click the cut.
( This was originally a Manly Tears Week entry. Just a warning. )
Next time: More trouble from the spawn of Ares, and men walk on Themysciran shores, which isn't the catastrophe it would have been pre-Crisis but still manages to spell more trouble than it initially seems worth.

Napoleon's free lunch and today's mystery photo|
So much great stuff has faded into obscurity. NAPOLEON by Clifford McBride started in papers in 1929 (as UNCLE ELBY) and ran for more than twenty years. (The strip was reprinted for years in FAMOUS FUNNIES, often with a new illustration for the cover.) Napoleon never had a thought balloon or did anything a dog couldn't do. That was part of the strip's gentle charm. This page from 1935 is a good example of wordless storytelling. Well, trusting a dog (even a good dog) with a whole chicken strikes me as asking for disappointment. (As an aside, it seems far-fetched today, but not that long ago parents often sent preteens into stores with a few dollars to come back with a pack of cigarettes or a six-pack, and no one thought twice about it. Today the story would be on the 6:00 news and charges would be pressed.)
( today's guest )
This respectable-looking old chap created a long-running and immensely popular strip that even heathens who don't like comics recognize.

Who was/is Tomorrow Woman?|
As those who were with SD before the great disaster I created a mega post about Tomorrow Woman and given her appearances in Trinity now I think it'd be best to have a post for those who'd want to look her up.
