Mash-Up #42

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.

Yet another Crisis on a Monday morning . . . could this all be leading to something?

100 Issues Ago

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?

I have to admit that even in 2010, I knew very little of Mike Mignola’s work outside what he’d done for DC, principally COSMIC ODYSSEY. I was aware of Hellboy, of course, but I don’t think I’d ever read anything by this point – something I’ve been making up for over the last few months with the HELLBOY OMNIBUSES that Dark Horse have done.

THE AMAZING SCREW-ON HEAD was a gift from a friend, a hard back collection of some of Mignola’s short stories, many of which were delightfully weird – The Magician and The Snake works a treat, particularly. I might just hook this off my shelf and give it a re-read.

Black and yellow versus . . . well . . . black and yellow, I guess.

The Hand of Time thing was just something I had to come up with to explain why Black Adam’s wearing that big metal glove.
