Monday Mash-Ups #7

Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays and I’ve been wanting to do something along those lines here.

So, and I admit to being HUGELY influenced by the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis, I’ve mashed up a few comic covers.

Each week I randomly generate two years and two months and then compare the titles I own from both those dates, trying to find some covers that, with a little basic photoshopping, I can mash together, and then I force the results on you lovely people.

Last week, I said I was really happy with the results of my mash-up – this week, honestly, not so much.

It was round about here that I started thinking “What am I doing wrong? Why am I forcing characters from one series on to the cover of another?”

It took another couple of attempts before I realised what I needed to do . . .

Have a Horrible Christmas, DC Fans!

Because nothing says Christmas – sorry, “the holidays” – like a post-apocalyptic nuclear special, does it?

Full marks, DC, for running with the puntastic title of DC Nuclear Winter Special wherein a collection of short stories “reveal how your favorite holiday-loving DC heroes celebrate the big day…after the big one drops.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably pick this up as I like an anthology comic, and the Yanick Paquette cover shown above it just gorgeous, but I have to wonder – did the ideas for stories come first or did an editor have a long list of Winter-based puns and settle on this one?

I have to admit to being really happy with this one, especially getting Green Arrow’s and Hawkman’s hands interacting with Fire and Blue Devil.

Ah, the 90s Justice League didn’t end well, did it?
