Mash-Up #62

Twice a week I randomly generate two dates and then compare the titles I own from both of them, 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.

By the way, 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.

Two Leagues clash as the body-swapped satellite era League go up against the New 52 version.

AQUAMAN #46

As Aquaman tries to convince Caille not to give in to the terrible secret inside her, he battles Namma who is intent upon destroying the world. Meanwhile, the gods who sent him and Caille on this quest realise they should have stepped up themselves and summon their powers to battle Namma.

Last month’s issue – which was basically Namma’s secret origin – was a wonderful example of world building; this issue’s just a bit meh in comparison.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #20

The League are in the Sixth Dimension, supposedly meeting future versions of themselves that have already fought and won against the Legion of Doom and Perpetua. Not surprisingly, given the ending of the previous issue and the cover of this one, not all is as it seems and while we don’t get to see the two Supermen battle each other, we do see Batman being suspicious (no, really?!) and J’onn and Hawkgirl’s future son reveal that the future heroes aren’t really the future heroes.

Not a bad issue, just a little by the numbers.

And yeah, that was it – just two comics this week.

Real Men!

The early 70s really were a different time, weren’t they?

While hunting for covers for my series of Mash-Ups, I came across this . . . thing . . .

Look at those banner headlines!

NYMPHOMANIACS: How you can spot them

How to win on the horses!

Love slave to the women who only love corpses!

These were the things that “REAL MEN” were into back then. And here I am, reading comics when I could be finding “murder . . . terror . . . treachery along the trail of the white death

You know, I think I’ll stick to the quiet life, thanks very much.

Everyone remember when John Stewart became a Guardian, complete with red cape? No? You do surprise me.
