The Clone Saga: Venture Brother's style|
Why the Venture Bros. aren't getting more nods on this board, I don't know. Sure, they are not in comic format, but they have so much of the vibe that we love here in Scans_daily. Anywho, please follow the link to the Adult Swim website.
In the meantime, here is some love:

DCAU: When present Superman met Batman Beyond|
This is from Superman Adventures 64. 22 pages total, posted 7 and the cover.
Terry gets sent back in time by Bruce of the future to prevent Clark from making a horrible mistake.
Basically Brainiac has launched this super nuke that could put the entire earth into a nuclear winter. Superman originally stopped this by throwing it into the sun and it worked...until the future when it eventually caused the sun to send solar flares towards earth, heating it more and more each day. Terry is here to stop that and instead of the sun Superman throws it into deep space where no one will ever get hurt by it.
But there is a catch. Bruce of the future imprisoned Brainiac into the bat-computer and basically rendered him powerless. He discovers some of Brainiac's blueprints, including one for a Kryptonian time machine which be uses to send Terry back in time, but that part of Brainic awakens and stows away on the Bat-plane to the past to merge with it's past self and become even stronger.
It is mentioned that there is a time paradox by the way.
Brainiac ends up possessing Terry's suit, but Terry wins by taking out the power source from the new bat-plane, which in turn turns off Brainiac.
Most misleading cover ever too.
I am not good at tagging so hopefully I got it right.

All Hail The King of Beserkers..|
Load Runner #3 July 21-August 3 1983|
Back in the early 1980s, I was in England for a while--more on that in another post. The main thing is that I managed to pick up a bunch of British comics, some of which I still have. One of these is Load Runner #3, from July 1983. Among other things, this was the time of the microcomputer boom, affordable home computers that sold like hotcakes. Naturally, the folks at ECC Publications saw a market for a comic of stories all tangentially related to computers in some way.
I don't know enough about the British publishing industry to know if this is an orphaned publication, though reprints seem unlikely. So the following scans comply as much as possible with the one-third rule.
Your thoughts? Amusing stories about your first microcomputer?
