Lois and Clark Week Last Gasp|
Once upon a time, Lois Lane began acting...not herself. She was cranky and rude to Clark and he felt bewildered and weakened. To make a long arc short, it was discovered that Lois is NOT Lois, but Parasite pretending to be Lois, and the real Lois is hidden somewhere. Parasite dies before Superman could find out where.
These scans are from Action Comics #766 and Superman v.2 #159.

Drug Week, featuring Bear Nuts.|
I've been thinking of pimping the really, really fun webcomic Bear Nuts here for a while, but never gotten around to it.
'Drug Week', however, has given me a kick in the ass, via an excuse!
To find out what happens next, read the strip - it'll be worth it, trust me.

Superman: For Tomorrow|
Back when I was just getting into comics I devoured everything I could get my hands on. Since I am a Superman fangirl Superman: For Tomorrow was recommended to me. I would post a mega-post about it, but the truth is, I don't get it. I read both volumes in the vain hope that what was set up in the beginning would make sense by the end. I'm still wondering. However, I liked the art and it remains one of my favorites if only for the Lois and Clark (well...Superman, more on that below) moments in it. But it still confuses the hell out of me. If anyone understands and can explain
a few things about this story to me I will give you an internet cookie and my undying gratitude.
These scans are from Vol 2 of For Tomorrow, originally from Superman (vol 2) #212.
So...yeah. Some explanation by those more knowledgeable than me would be nice, because I have lost count of the WTF moments.
And this is my last contribution to Lois and Clark week, because the week is over and I have other stuff I should be getting to. I hope you enjoyed it with me!

Things like this wouldn't happen|
... if aliens 'lit up' and relaxed a bit more. Can you imagine the Guardians just looking up into the stars after toking up?
Previews *and some mild spoilers* for Green Lantern Corps #35. (From Newsarama)
And thank goodness they don't, or we would not get action like this.

We can stop the enemies of youth! (Dope Week)|
This public service page first appeared in BUSTER CRABBE# 1 from 1951, and was reprinted in DARDEVIL COMICS, CRIME DOES NOT PAY, BLACK DIAMOND WESTERN and MURDER TALES (now THERE's a title that doesn't beat around the bush over what the comic is about). It's typically great Frazetta art; check out the postures and body language, and the faces in the top right (which are just haggard enough). I suppose if it were done today, it might be about crack, showing a teenage girl wearing a short skirt getting in a car with some leering old men. ("She had become ADDICTED TO DOPE and had to SELL HER BODY to get some more dope for HERSELF") but here it's just a bit vaguer. (As an aside, I do get a vague nostalgic twinge whenever I see a PSA in old comics and magazines which suggest that someone with a problem "discuss it with their clergyman". That attitude seems to have been destroyed by scandal after scandal, just as horror movies seldom show a priest with strong faith that can fight the forces of darkness.)

BEEPO AND ROADKILL FOR DOPE WEEK|
Just a sample from one of the few online comics that are not anti-drug. I wouldn't call Mr. Yungbluth an advocate exactly, but he's admitted to using pot himself and seems to be pro-choice when it comes to controlled substances.
