Wade and Peter Snark Off at Each Other.|
Greetings True Believers! I thought I'd bring you an amusing scene between Deadpool and Spider-Man in the fourth issue of the mini-series Deadpool: Suicide Kings. It's team-up time as Daredevil and Spidey have rescued DP but there is always time for snark. Spoilers and enjoy!

Golden Age Wonder Woman|
Three panels from Sensation Comics #29, 1944. Mala is the Amazon in charge of the Amazon prison. You can imagine what Amazon prisons are like by now, I expect. Here's how Mala fares in Man's World:

Becase we all need some anarchy in our lives. |
Hello I was going to post the very excellent future comic Spider-man 2099 but because it's written by a certain author who I still love despite the fallout of the last community, I decided to post this Grant Morrison classic Kill your Boyfriend.

Comics for girls part 2: Bunty, 1987|
Last time we visited School Friend in 1953. This time it's Bunty, the British Girls' comic for basically the latter half of last century. And yeah, I'm biased because I love it like I love 90s X-Men and Tomb of Dracula and CB&MI:13. But it's not just my opinion! Google "Bunty the book for girls", you'll see what I mean.
Anyhow, 1987 was a great year in many ways I am sure, but in particular it brought the world a) me, and b) this annual.
I actually want to share almost every story from this annual, because they are mostly grand. But scanning takes me SO LONG, that this time I only have two stories, two previews, and one BONUS FUN PAGE.
Finally, two intro-panels from stories I'm not going to fully post. One for the girls being tough, one for the CRACK. Because I know what you love, s_d. And I love it too! (And I promise, this is not the weirdest pet story in the book. TUNE IN NEXT TIME.)

Powerless: Some Constants|
in a world where radioactive spider bites just shrivel up your arm, industrial waste to the face blinds you full-stop, and secret government assassin programs just give you claws...
well, Powerless happens.
Six issues of seeing what happens in a world without anything super, as told through the eyes of psychiatrist William Watts and the odd visions of 616 he's having.
(warning: i'm lazy, so I'm using thumbnails.)
( It's not a total break from 616, though... )

Wally Wood's alien women|
The cover by Wally Wood to the SPACEMEN 1965 YEARBOOK. This was a short-lived effort from James Warren to branch out from FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND to other genres. He also tried WILDEST WESTERNS, SCREEN THRILLS ILLUSTRATED and MONSTER WORLD with limited success. Warren actually did best with the black and white horror comics magazines... CREEPY, EERIE, VAMPIRELLA, 1984/1994, THE ROOK. Maybe with more commercial than artistic success, to be sure.
Looking over the alien chicks in this astronaut's swinging bachelor pad (you just KNOW he has modern jazz on his stereo), I'm intrigued by the one on the far left with the horse legs and tail. An interesting take on a centaur? Or a reference to the "Horstel" race in Philip Jose Farmer's DARE? Other aliens here remind me a bit of Marvel characters who came along later, namely Storm and Tigra. Also, although it seems our hero really has it made, do not envy him. The green woman is planning to get him alone, shove her ovipositer down his throat and lay her eggs in his thoracic cavity. So he'd better enjoy the situation while he can.
