One Perfect Moment: Norman Osborn.|
Greetings True Believers! I have another entry for the One Perfect Moment week. This one is about Norman Osborn. Norman is a lot of things, super-villain, business leader, player on the world stage, father, Avenger/Thunderbolt, scientist, liar, schemer, abuser, superhuman. Probably a lot of other things too. But these scans from Spider-Man's Tangled Web #13 show what Norman truly is beneath all other labels and masks...

DC September Superman Solicits|
Covers and solicitations for two of Septembers Superman related books under the cut.
One perfect moment: Yeah, I did it.|
As soon as I read this one panel, I knew things were going to end much more differently for our comic book heroes than had ever experienced before.
I will leave out the tags (to be filled in later), so that those few rare of us who are not aware of the work are surprised (like I was) when I read this.

Baffled by the Purple Claw!|
There were only three issues of THE PURPLE CLAW in 1953 from obscure minor publisher Toby. It was much more a horror title than super-hero, and a shoddy one at that. I've seen much worse comics, of course. There were some so poor that it seemed like the publisher was trying to hurt your feelings by selling copies. Yet, as slack as THE PURPLE CLAW was, it had some aspects that puzzle and intrigue me after all these years. For one thing, it's the way the Claw itself hops from right hand to left and back again....
THE RETURN OF KATE BEATON|
It may be worth noting to some of you that Kate Beaton's collection of strips, Never Learn Anything from History, is back in stock! (I got my copy today. :3 ) To celebrate, here are some strips that AREN'T in the book!

Perfect Moment: Catwoman #70|
I haven't read Catwoman since the 90's, when she had the purple costume and a rack that made Peej's look modest, but when the following page was posted to the old SD, this became my third favorite comic page ever (second favorite Batman page). I forget who scanned this, but my thanks to them for it.
( From Catwoman #70... )
I've kind of kept an eye out to see if this was posted earlier, but never saw it. If, however, I missed it and am double-posting, I apologize.

One Perfect Endless Moment - #3 Delirium|
Delirium must be a, literally, insanely difficult character to write
She has to be able to make sense, but in a nonsensical, way. She also has to be slightly terrifying

One Perfect Moment: Batman / Deadman|
From Detective Comics #500, by Cary Bates and Carmine Infantino.
Batman has been poisoned, and is lying in a hospital bed on the brink of death. Luckily, Deadman is on the scene, and heads to the Astral Plane to lend Bruce's soul some moral support. But there's a problem:

A few perfect moments:: Batman vs. Predator|
As I was looking over some of the one perfect moment, I was reminded of Batman Vs. Predator, which to me is one of the greatest crossover stories ever published and an insanely awesome bout between the two characters mentioned in the title. It also contained three perfect moments for three central charaters in the Batverse as well as two beautiful large images, which contrast each other in several ways.
