The Power Company: Witchfire|
What happens when singer, actor, stunt girl etc.... Witchfire and Wonder Woman meet at a concert?
A rather interesting meeting with a very powerful DC supervillain who is in no way *cough* connected to Blackest Night.
Just thought you all might enjoy this...

Golden Age Wonder Woman|
Today's story is from Sensation Comics #8, 1942, about a department store chain called Bullfinch that overworks its employees terribly. Yeah, WW shilling for labor unions. Sad.

The Broken Mirror, or: They Had To Do A Mirrorverse Eventually|
yup, Transformers got a Mirrorverse, courtesy of Transformers Timelines #3 and Botcon 2008.

( As seen through the eyes of Classics-continuity Cliffjumper, though... it's strange. )

So I broke down and bought "Marvel Divas". Maybe because the reviews weren't that bad. Or they had the groove-tastic 70's variant cover. Or maybe it was the two three margaritas I downed at the restaurant down the street during lunch.
So I got to thinking. What if DC did a Divas/SATC type story? You know, have some of their lead women get together to discuss their love lives. All while doing some female bonding at a spa.
Oh wait. They already did.
3 and 1/3 pages from a 10 page story from JLA Giant number 2.

World's Finest 297 - "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do"|
Roughly a page's worth from World's Finest #297, August 1983, not my scans. For reasons not entirely clear to me, having to do with events in JLA and Batman and the Outsiders apparently, Batsy is in a temper. How dare Supes save his life! How dare he beat him to doing-good-deeds punch! And pretty soon, the boys are on the outs.

Firestorm Villain: Killer Frost |
Or: Gerry Conway and his Gender War issues!
The early Gerry Conway had some pretty good stuff. Since she's coming back as a Black Lantern, here's a look at the original Killer Frost. (Roughly 16 pages, poor dial-upper..)

Supplementary Tomorrow Woman post|
Aside from what I've shown of Tomorrow Woman in my previous (not so mega) mega post
She's made two more cameo appearances that I hadn't included in my original post, one most people might have seen since it was in 52 but another that was in a much less known little story
Just a little going away post for SD since I'm going on vacation to visit my family in Greece for a month tomorrow afternoon.. Nothing like Tomorrow.
