The Superman/Batman #61 Cover....|
So I was writing my Pull List article for my website tonight, and I noticed something about the Superman/Batman #61 cover that I wanted to ask you guys about.

Fantastic Four #5: "The Fantast Four Meet... DOCTOR DOOM"|
I saw a comment from magnetic_regina asking whether the Debut of Doom had been posted, and amazingly, it hasn't. Rectified!
"Prisoners of Doctor Doom!" was published July, 1962. After much deliberation, I narrowed down the preview image to just one of the many crackalicious panels:

REBORN #1 (Massive Spoilers)|
So whose coming back in the upcoming Reborn? Well Marvel just released a press release revealing who it as as well as two covers by John Cassaday and Alex Ross. The answer and the covers under the cut.

Clone saga mini|
So that clone saga mini we were talking about. We now know if it is was real or not...and I'm going to be a jerk and make you click on my site to find out.
WELL? Is it real?
To make it legal..

Given today's news about the Reborn story arc kicking off with CA #600 (which is for sale NOW, not Wednesday), I thought I'd post one of my own favorite Cap pages. It's not really one that I think would have qualified for One Perfect Moment, but it is a very powerful one.

by request, Huntress/Question (pt 1)|
I wanted to start my Vic Sage series with Ditko and work chronologically from there, but a request is a request, so here we go!
After all, everything needs to start somewhere, and this story is where both Huntress/Question and Rucka!Question debut, so what better to post than
Current Music: Beck ~ "Walls"

One Less-Than-Perfect Moment: Sally Floyd, Civil War: Frontline|
Maybe this isn't fair to her or her fans, but like it or not, this is the moment for which Sally Floyd's been most remembered: she's in serious need of character redemption or getting the Latveria beat. I'd been toying with posting this all weekend, even before...you know. Stuff.

By request - Titans #14|
From the requests thread, 2 pages + 1 preview panel from Titans #14, new out this week. My crops but not my scans.
It's a Spotlight on Cyborg issue called "Disconnected." After conversations with Gar and Sarah, an encounter with Creepy Old Friend Ron, and a surprisingly emotional crisis-specific skirmish with a supervillain, Vic faces down his most terrifying challenge of all:

Superman Elseworlds: True Brit|
I just acquired a copy of True Brit, about what if baby Kal-El had landed in England instead of the U.S. I was eager to read this, but alas, the author apparently really dislikes Brits. Just one page to show you what I mean. The whole book's like this.
EDIT: Turns out the author is John Cleese - I didn't even look. Poking fun at his own country is his usual schtick. It's still not what I hoped for.

Golden Age Wonder Woman|
These are from Sensation #19 published in 1943. The art is by Frank Godwin again, and the story is titled (in the Archives volume) "The Unbound Amazon". This is when the idea that Amazons go berserk if their bracelets are removed was introduced.
