Sometimes, ranting about tracers or artists who have no sense of anatomy isn't enough.

Sometimes I just want to post silly stuff on the interwebs.

I post all kinds of things that I find weird and funny. You have been warned. Sorta.

 

So today I visited a small comic book bazaar / exchange thing with a friend. I ended up selling a few books and an old figure that I really had no reason to own… and made 400 pesos (about $35) from the sales!

Unfortunately I spent about half of it on sodas and comics. Oops. Though it wasn’t a bad investment…

All of these were published by the late Editorial Toukan. These were probably distributed locally after I quit buying comics in 2002-2003, after some uh, tough moments in my life (to say the least.)

  • Faraón #1 & #2 - This looks like one of those adultish books, only in a comic book format;
  • Santo #3-#6 and Místico #2 - LUCHADOR COMICS! Can’t wait to check ‘em out;
  • A mitad del camino - this comic book was printed by the government in 2003. It’s just propaganda, I really didn’t look at it - the booth where I got this gave it to me for free for buying everything else.

(Tumblr keeps breaking the layout if I don’t enter text here.)

  • Cinacros #5 - I already own issues 1 through 3, and I’m not sure if I have issue 4
  • Nagual Extra #2 - This used to be some sort of adult manga comic thing in the late 90s. I thought they’d gone bankrupt and closed after a certain point but it looks like they managed to release some more issues;
  • Mantis: Zona Oscura #1 - I have no idea what this even is but the art inside is wow
  • Barrabaces - Some weird comic from South America that got reprinted in the 70s
  • Valle de lágrimas - a comic book that’s performed by real people. Yeah I dunno.

But how could I refuse comics with such amazing art

Some true masterpieces are contained within these pages

These books should not be tossed out, they should be treasured as they portray an era of Mexican comics that nobody ever remembers

Or maybe they’re kinda shit.

:D

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.

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.

Today’s Comic Stash

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.
