You just know there's a Boring Story behind that...|
G'day mates! Long-time reader/commenter, never posted, but today I was re-reading an old issue of Suicide Squad and just had to share this beaut of "Context is for the Weak" moment with the Thinker. Seems our lad's got a bit of a crush...

Kory, Raven, Dick, and not too much clothing|
From the New Teen Titans #39, January 1988 - my formative comics years - comes some fun Edwardo Barretto art.
Oh yes, and there's a story too - Raven is able to feel emotions, falls for Dick Grayson, and seems to be trying to make him fall in love with her as well. Kory provides some emotional counselling in Tahiti for her, and while they're away, Dick moves in with Kory. Various relationship talks are had while lying around not fully dressed.

Vampires on talk shows. What is the world coming to?|
I haven't been following scans_daily much lately. Interest seems mostly on current super-hero comics, mostly Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and the Batman colony. But I thought some here might like a look at one of the odder strips of the past.
Warren's CREEPY and EERIE started out like gangbusters, black & white horror comics illustrated by hall of fame artists. Some CREEPY and EERIE stories were better than some EC (which had their share of duds, like anyone). But after Archie Goodwin left, Warren magazines ran to the edge of the quality cliff and jumped off. By the time 1984 was started (imitating HEAVY METAL, I suppose), things were dire. The magazine had lots of decent art, but the stories were gross-outs aiming at being offensive rather than provocative, crass rather than thought-provoking. There was almost nothing in 1984 (which changed to 1994 after the George Orwell estate had something to say) worth saving. But I did like REX HAVOC (AND THE ASS-KICKERS OF THE FANTASTIC).

Looking for a "Motto" here, S_D'ers|
Am I the only one who sees anything...odd...about this panel from a 1973 Avengers issue?

So, it looks like Jerry Ordway's going to be doing at least one JSA arc (writing and art both, possibly -- definitely for this first issue) before Willingham takes over.
The mere beginnings of the plot that we see in this issue still appear to be of much higher quality than what Geoff Johns produced in his final throes on the title.
I'm just going to post the first 4 pages, because the rest are so intertwined that cherry-picking anything from them would require tons of explanation that I don't have time to write up.
( Atom Smasher talks about his personal history over drinks with someone I bet most of you won't expect... )

WEEK OF DOOM!!1: DAY ONE.|
DOOM is in the mood to display his love of the ARTS. Here are some pages from Iron Man #249, minus the BOTHERSOME TIME TRAVEL and ARTHURIAN MEDDLING. Such nonsense is best left to fools like RICHARDS. Also: what happens when DOOM shows up at STARK MANOR.
