Greg Land approves!
I’m considering starting a blog that lists all the stuff that no longer exists in mainline DC canon. I’m not sure if I should do this or not solely because I don’t know if I could handle the large amount of flaming that I would get by all the fans of the current continuity - real or otherwise.
I’m also not sure if I could handle such a thing without breaking into fits of rage due to how this is being handled.
And I also don’t want to give DC Comics more publicity than they deserve.
I have several friends that have been disappointed over the things that have been erased. And while not everything is a bad thing (Cry For Justice, or Kevin Smith’s treatement of Stanley and his Monster not existing are a good thing)… I’m not sure if I should.
I guess I’m looking for input here.
So THIS is where Tim Drake ended up after Flashpoint!
What if Rob Liefeld had drawn Superman?
Okay, that’s a joke. Rob Liefeld did not draw this. This is from Superman: The Man of Steel #33 (May 1994), written by Louise Simonson, with pencils by Jon Bogdanove and inks by Dennis Janke. Basically, Superman is absorbing energy in an uncontrolled fashion, so is body is all distorted like that. He looks like Prime at the beginning of the issue, but by the end he’s so freakishly huge he looks like something out of Rob Liefeld’s earliest works.
Everyone else has regular, normal proportions, except for him. (And Guardian, in one panel.) I think Simonson and Bogdanove were poking fun at 90’s artwork. And Janke’s inking is pretty good, it makes things stand out without excessive use of crosshatching.
The story isn’t bad, but I didn’t read Superman during this era.
Budget DVD makers have the best - the best - photoshop artists around.
Everything here cost fifty cents a pop.
SO MUCH EXTREME. Black & White issues 1 to 3, Brigade, Prophet Annual (I’m curious about this one because of the new series coming out), plus Cyber Force v2 #0 and #1. They had #2 too, but it was part of a crossover, and those other issues were missing.
What if The Avengers had fought Galactus is neat. I got those two Secret Defenders books because of the villains (one is named Dredlox. They even ask that on the first page of the book!) Sensational vs Savage She-Hulk is a fill-in issue from the Byrne era. That Doctor Strange annual looked silly. Guardians of the Galaxy has z0mg FUTURE GHOST RIDER, and I got that issue of Kazar for the stuff below:
Yeah, apparently it has some sort of comic on CD. It was never opened. I can’t wait to see what’s in it.
Also, this stuff.
Did you know that DC had its own version of Judge Dredd? It’s certainly… different. I have no idea what’s up with the middle comic, and the last one. That last one, oh boy. Space Beaver. It’s just as silly as you think it is.
I need a better scanner. I MUST talk about these.
