Maxima, I need you!|
I owe my flatmate one, so I want to try and blow up/paint a large pop art acrylic image of Maxima on some canvas (He really likes Maxima and tells me that he's been waiting for years for her to come back whenever I bitch about Ted Kord's demise).
Anyway, I can't find any substantial (or very striking) images of Maxima on google images to work from, or even any comics on ebay that seem to feature her.
So, can anyone help me out? Cover art would probably work best, but I have no idea how much she featured on covers back in the day.

Marvel September Solicits|
Seven Marvel solicitations for September including the Thor Annual, Hercules, Nova and Agents of Atlas under the cut.

Golden Age Wonder Woman|
These are from Wonder Woman Archives Vol. 3. The story was originally published in Sensation #18 in 1943. The art is by Frank Godwin, not H.G. Peters. Apparently for a time Peters had too big a workload, so Godwin did a few issues of WW and Sensation.

Spirou: The Valley of the Banned|
I got a bit of encouragement in my last Spirou post to do some more, so I thought I'd start with one of my favourites of the Tome & Janry era, La Vallee Des Banees.

by request, Huntress/Question (finale)|
I've had my six hours of sleep, so I'm back to wrap this bit up with a few scans from Gotham Knights #'s 38 and 39, the only time a writer other than Rucka referred to the pairing in the DCU.

When Robin Met Superman - Dick, Jason & DCAU!Tim.|
I think it's been established that there are a lot of Superman fans in the DCU. A lot of people wear the t-shirts, love autographs and generally wanted to be Superman when they grow up.
I decided to post this when going through some old issues, I realised that a few of the Robins get thoroughly excited when meeting the man for the first time. These are from Legends of the DC Universe #6 , Action Comics #594  and Gotham Adventures #36 
( I think 'Wow' is the keyword here. 12 scans under the cut. )

The List (Aka: Hal Jordan has no friends)|
A while ago I posted Neil Gaiman's 'Green Lantern/Superman: Legend of the Green Flame'. I prefaced the entry by saying it was a continuation of sorts of an older story known as 'The List' (published in Action Comics Weekly #606). I've finally decided to post part of that story, which depicts a surprisingly vulnerable Hal Jordan and (even more surprising) an uncharacteristically rude Alfred Pennyworth.

Marvel Solicitations, September 2009|
Tags: genre: solicitations
|It seems the universe has conspired to make me eat crow. Just last week, I was making such bold pronouncements as, "Marvel's probably a little hesitant to put any more Steranko work out in trade...", only to have the September solicits announce this:|
( Click for glorious news! )
No word yet on whether Marvel learned their lesson and is actually paying Steranko this time around, but I've sent off a few e-mails inquiring about that, and I'll keep you posted. I'm a little irked that they're cutting it off at NF #3, just because Steranko's last interior work on the book was in #5, and continued a story started in #1. Seeing as how #4 was a fill-in issue by Frank Springer, I don't see why they couldn't have just put #5 in this volume, and left #4 for a hypothetical next volume. I know the Masterworks are pretty staunchly chronological, but come on.
Anyway, to celebrate, have a picspam of my favorite moments from those issues!

The Minima Of Lucas " Snapper " Carr's Life|
remember that time he sold the Justice League out to a proponent of mediocrity?

Request: Batman, Child Whisperer pt. 1 of 2|
Runespoor7 requested any examples of interaction between Batman and children. I have two examples, this one from a 1980 World's Finest story, and in the next post a more recent interaction circa 2004. Here we have 4 pages and 2 panels of a 17-page story (my calculator says 1/3 of 17 pages is 5.666666etc. pages), "The Power of the Pi-Meson Man!"

Shortpacked On Battle for the Cowl|
Tags: creator: david willis, medium: webcomic, title: shortpacked!
Request: Batman, Child Whisperer pt. 2 of 2|
Runespoor7 requested interaction between Batman and children. This post I've scanned 4 pages from JLA #106, "The Pain of the Gods," Nov. 2004, 22 pages.
I don't have #105 so I can't summarize this very well, but I'll try; feel free to fill in the gaps in the comments, gang. The issue opens with Superman and Wonder Woman stopping a super-powered boy from beating the krep out of a gang of schoolyard bullies. The kid is furious with Superman for "letting his father die," and punches Supes clear through three rooms of the school building. So, next step: Talk with his mom.

Spider-Man physics, you're doing it wrong!|
I came across a few pages of hidden gems from WAAAAAY back... We're talking Spider-Man #2 and #3, so I don't think spoiler warnings apply here. These are things where even at the most basic level, it dosen't make any freaking sense. =p But it's amusing!
