Well, if we can get Wonder Girl making her O face, we can have Robin doing what he does best. (IMHO)|
This was one of the more popular posts I made on SD_1.0 two years ago, and whilst I apologise I don't have anything new to post at the moment, since we're on a New Teen Titans
kink kick, time for some equal opportunity perving. (Now with added cover fun!)

More Scott and Logan drinkin'|
I had forgotten how much I liked this issue, and in my haste to post from it earlier, neglected some key dialog between Cyclops and Wolverine. So I trimmed down my original post a bit to fit this short conversation...

Disney + Marvel = Profit!|
Profit for lazy webcomic creators who can't be bothered writing anything good! My stab at this whole merger business below the cut:

My Grave and I am in it...again and again...|
Here's a grisly image from a "group" webcomic that I and some other webcomic authors are collaborating on (click on the image to go to the actual webcomic...and no, it's not "women in refrigerators"---the group's only male's alternative selves suffered the same fate)...but I have a question...
Since you're a literate group, I thought you might know...

Amazing Spiderman 604 preview|
Oh boy, I thought Peter was melted down into goo last issue, just like Ben Reilly. How did he ever survive?
Did he pull a Luke Skywalker-escape-out-of-the-carbonite-trap-trick?
Sadly, nothing so cool.
Here is the link to the Preview behind the cut.

Lee Garbett's version of Steph's costume|
Just so's everyone can see it. This is the costume we'll be seeing in the interiors and (IMO) it looks a lot less like stripey pajamas and is pretty neat. Also, various comments from Garbett about the costume:

Horror week: Blackest Night - Batman preview|

While the Superman story has kept the horror in our minds, we get to savor it.

Oh, Lois. |
Everytime I looked at scans of Action Comics here, there was always one thing on my mind. When the heck is Lois Lane finally going to kick some ass? I didn't get exactly what I was looking for.

Why Robin's utility belt is like the TARDIS...|
... a lot more fits in there than you'd think looking from the outside.
Does that count for the trunks, too? Maybe Batman and Doctor Who have the same manufacturer for their stuff after all.
Another reason why I'm posting this scene from New Teen Titans #13 (1981) is the awesome African setting. Though I read NTT from the first issue on, this was the one that got me totally hooked back then.

Adventure Comics #5 cover|

As talented and perceptive as Harvey Kurtzman was, I've always had a sad feeling of missed possibilities about him. He wrote and edited two titles for EC (TWO-FISTED TALES and FRONTLINE COMBAT) which had meticulous research and strong moral points to make.. they were more about the hopelessness and injustice of war, rather than the gung-ho flave-waving stuff other publishers put out. With the top artists of EC to work with, Kurtzman turned out classic material that still hits hard today. But, to make more money despite his slow careful writing style, he began EC's humor comic, TALES CALCULATED TO DRIVE YOU MAD. Those early color comics issues of MAD are gems. Even after MAD went to a full size black & white magazine format, it kept for years a really subversive satirical outlook.
But Harvey Kurtzman left MAD to be his own boss, and (sorry to say) he never quite produced as fine a product as he seemed capable of. Maybe he benefitted from Bill Gaines' input and the EC atmosphere; maybe his approach to comedy was formulaic and would have worn thin anyway. In any case, Kurtzman edited two issues of TRUMP for Hugh Hefner, and edited HELP! for a few years. He went on to produce LITTLE ANNIE FANNY for PLAYBOY, an epic satirizing current fads and trends, always with a heavy dose of nudity and implied sex. I think LITTLE ANNIE FANNY is better than it's usually given credit for being. It had low points and dragged on too long, but at its best, it was both funny and incisive.At one point, Kurtzman started his own magazine, HUMBUG. From what I've seen, it was clever and witty, with great art. (Seriously... Will Elder, Al Jaffee, Jack Davis, Arnold Roth.. those guys would be funnyn if you had them illustrate the Yellow Pages.) But something is definitely lacking. It's just not as funny as MAD was. Sometimes I wonder if Kurtzman needed more editorial guidance and prodding than he would accept. The material has dated badly, too. Then-current movies which have been forgotten and trends long since left behind don't help humor. Anyway, here are a few glimpses at HUMBUG.

Blackest Night: GLC #40 preview (with words)|
IGN has the preview of Green Lantern Corps #40.
The scope of the horror unleashed is really felt as we go from location to location and see the Black Lanterns influence spread.
