The Blue Beetle's Enemies, Part the First: Firefist, the Incendiary Man!|
Ted fought more than the comic results of his own actions and the Madmen. Who knew, eh?
And he fought some rather interesting enemies too.
( But heck, so did Dan Garrett... )

Marvel Black and white mags.|
More for Horror week. Recently a couple people posted some stuff from the Marvel Black and white magazine ( Marvel experimented with more adult themed books in the 70's). Here are some covers.

Mod Post: Reminders and an Announcement|
First of all, some reminders about posting:
- Remember to keep making sure that any images outside of an LJ-cut are 300x400 pixels or less, so just remember to either check your sizes or use our handy-dandy LJ-cut code as provided in the posting guidelines. (Images outside of the cut should also be free of spoilers and should be Safe For Work, while we're at it.)
- Another thing I'd like to remind everyone about is "NSFW" posts. "Not Safe For Work" means just that, something that might be inappropriate or questionable for viewing in the work place. Please remember that this does not just apply to porn or nudity, but extreme violence and gore as well. NSFW posts should be friendslocked, tagged, and say somewhere either in the post title or above the LJ-cut that it is NSFW, as people watching the group on the feeds can't see cut text.
- As always, I encourage you to read the posting guidelines again if you need a refresher.
We've also got an announcement to make, as some changes are a-foot!
Long story short, my life and schedule are changing a bit, meaning I won't have the time/attention to devote to being a moderator here at scans_daily anymore. Thus, I am stepping down.
However, not only do you still have our other lovely and hard-working mods, we now have an awesome new moderator stepping up! Please join me in welcoming our newest
evil overlord scans_daily mod, sandoz_iscariot!
And since I'm no longer a mod, I'd better add a scan for legality:
Be good, stay cool, say no to drugs, stay in school, look both ways before you cross the street, stay alert, stay safe, and don't do anything Batman wouldn't do! =) ♥

One thing that I hope will happen, with Disney's purchase of Marvel ...|
... Is that Disney won't ever put up with another Marvel comic whose credits are printed in the style of Fantastic Four #570:
TAKE A GUESS AS TO WHY THIS MIGHT BE CONSIDERED OFFENSIVE.
HERE'S YOUR FIRST HINT.
YOUR SECOND HINT, IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW ALREADY; LEE AND KIRBY ARE BOTH JEWISH.
ETA: Marvel race!fails again, a companion piece.

Alan Moore draws Godzilla|
There is a mountain of art about Godzilla, enough to bury the big guy himself in. I don't know why he haunts the unconscious memory of humankind, unless he is some sort of Great Old One left out of the NECRONOMICON and he lives in our collective unconsciousness or something. A very evocative scene from one of the movies had a group of schoolchildren drawing what they had been dreaming about. To the teacher's apalled surprise, they all drew different images of Godzilla (as the march played). Dark Horse did a 1987 one-shot called GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS, which featured a few guest artists.
Alan Moore's page seems at first too gimmicky to have any resonance. The woman's rapidly turning head drawn as three exposures and the depiction of the superheated breath head-on)irritated me at first glance. But a second look reveals several amusing details (the bottom of the big guy's foot, for example) and the perspective of a difficult angle is handled well.

Wolfman and Perez meet the Teen Titans... for real.|
I've got more New Teen Titans crack for you (yeah, blame me for re-reading the 1980's NTT comics and finding funny stuff here and there).
This time it's a short story that was attached to New Teen Titans #20 (from 1982), in which Marv Wolfman and George Perez meet our favourite teen heroes.
Oh, and it also includes a mad scientist named Igor Igorigorigorivich, his dumb assistant, a few killer robots and the whole crew behind the comic. And if that's not enough, have a small teaser:
So, what made Wolfman and Perez create this story? Were drugs involved? Did they lose a bet?
And the biggest question: will there be another dance scene?
