The Life Mistaken|
I was a big fan of the Green/Johnson run on Superman/Batman, as while they weren't perfect, they had a certain charm and fun to them, while staying true to the main characters and their relationship, actually saying something about it. So, as they are now officially, well for a while now actually, moving on to bigger and better things from the title, I thought I'd post certain scenes from their first issue, which had me laughing at several points.

About Babs/Dinah and Gail Simone|
Funny question: On a TV Tropes example page most relevant to our interests, someone wrote that Gail Simone 'encourages' femmeslash. What interview was that?

The Good Fairy|
Tags: publisher: ec comics, title: impact
Yesterday I posted scenes from the first issue of Green's run on Superman/Batman and realized that it would be a crime to not post a certain scene from the third issue of the storyline. At the end of the first issue, Superman has convinced Batman to help him round-up the kryptonite on Earth, so it won't stop him from helping people. It just turns out that there is a lot of it around after the Kryptonite meteor in the first storyline of the title. While they are doing this, Batman receives a weird signal from the satellites, indicating a location of Kryptonite in a certain bar. What bar? The Oblivion Bar, which is basically the hangout for magic-users, so Supes and Bats are simply thrilled in going there. At the bar they do find the kryptonite in a medallion sealed way and are confused by it being silver and so old that Krypton was still around when it was made. At that point Clark picks it up and it goes bam.

Heroes of the H-Mansion (1 of 10 or so)|
This webcomic has been floating around so long I'm surprised nobody ever translated it.
Done by Gurihiru, a Japanese artist team best known for their work on POWER PACK, it's a very irreverent take on the Marvel Universe, if the characters all lived in the same apartment building.
I've translated the title liberally as HEROES OF THE H-MANSION, but as with a lot of things in this project, I've taken a lot more liberties than I deserve. If there's any real groaners in here, I may well have put them in overzealously.

Baron Mordo shot and killed in Los Angeles|
This just in. Karl Mordo, evil sorceror who has long been a public menace to our dimension, was killed this afternoon by a single gunshot wound to the head. Apparently this mundane weapon took him by surprise.
In custody, the unnamed perpretator is quoted as saying, "The fool was throwing gang signs. He dissed my hood, I had to pop a cap on his ass."
Mordo's longtime arch-enemy Dr Stephen Strange of New York City reportedly could not stop laughing long enough to make a comment. In lieu of flowers, the Mordo family asks that goats be sacrificed to the Dread Dormammu.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all my fellow canuckleheads. I hope you all enjoy your food comas. I was in the midst of mine when it occurred to me to propose a theme: FOOD WEEK. All the tasty tasty comics featuring, involving, or instructing one how to make food. How about it?
For my first contribution, I offer some lovely recipes in comic form.
