Two more pages from Green Lantern #42 if this won't make you think the Guardians are jackasses, nothing will.

One more page from Gotham City Sirens|
My reasons for posting this page are twofold....firstly, to illustrate a point I made in the last Gotham City Sirens post about the way the artist draws faces - specifically, the blandness of the female faces, and relative cartooniness of the male faces.
Secondly...I'm a Riddler fan, who's been rather....distressed by his recent jobbing. For everyone. Former victims, supposed friends...it's one thing to have the Bat get one over on him, but Eddie's played the chump for everyone pretty constantly for a couple years, and this...bugs me. Eddie finally manages to get some back in GCS. Sort of.

Avengers The Initiative #25: Norman and Tigra|
Tags: char: green goblin/norman osborn, char: tigra/greer grant, creator: christos gage, creator: humberto ramos, title: avengers the initiative
I just acquired Superman/Batman: Alternate Histories. It includes "Leatherwing" (Pirate!Batman), "Legacy" (a Superman who got here 200 years earlier and prevented the American Revolution), "Crucible of Freedom" ("John Henry Irons is born and raised as a slave during the 1800s"), and finally, "Citizen Wayne" (1930s noir).
Under the cut, two scans from the pirate one.

From Herc #130|
colonel_green suggested I post this, and when the man's right, he's right. The affairs of Zeus and Herc were the main storyline this month, but Pak and Van Lente have also split Cho off for a potentially nifty little B-plot, so a few pages on that here.

A blast from the past* *(1941)|Eight Three pages from The Spirit Archives Volume 4, which is hundreds of pages long.
"A Dull Week" doesn't contain fun guest stars like Silk Satin or Sand Saref, but it does show Eisner's firm grasp on the form. All the storytelling elements he loved to play with are in fine form here, showing the comedic possibilities of the ensemble cast.

Alan Moore's Youngblood proposal|
In the late 90's, Alan Moore became the writer for Rob Liefeld's superhero team book Youngblood. As should come as no surprise, he drastically revamped the whole thing. This is the series outline Moore wrote up before starting on the book, in which he details his approach and plans for the title. It's a series bible of sorts, basically.
And for legality, there's three pages from Moore's time on the title itself, featuring a nifty take on superspeed.

I schemed a scheme in time gone by.|
Athena's been working a long scheme since pretty much the start of Incredible Hercules; herein I've gathered all the relevant evidence to speculate about what it is.
About twenty images, so not for dial-up.

He's an American Criminal Lunatic and a question for mods|
First of all the question. If I only post a few panels from a page can I post from more than seven different pages. I'm not just talking cutting blacked out panels because the character is supposed to be unconscious, there's still good stuff on them.
The Joker declaring himself "An American criminal lunatic" during a Marvel/DC crossover has been referenced here several times, but I don't think I've ever seen it posted. It's Batman/Captain America set during WW2
