Monday Mash-Ups #1

Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays – there was Monday Covers where I just picked out random, favourite covers; Monday Memes where I picked out covers that shared a theme; Monday Memories when I looked back at random comics from years gone by; and Who Was Who Is Who during which, just after the launch of the New 52, I went through every issue of Who’s Who and tried to predict whether they’d appear in the New 52 or not.

I’ve been thinking about doing something else for a Monday post and so, 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.

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.

Here’s my first attempt – Ghost #18 from September 1996, and Salvation Run #7 from July 2008:

Where Have All The Ads Gone?

I finally had enough of ads appearing at the bottom of the pages for crap like the “Room-o-Rang” and “50 Warriors” for just $4.95, let alone some arrogant bastard telling me I should be taller, so I’ve moved from the free, ad-driven WordPress plan to a personal one which gets rid of those bloody annoying adverts.

So I’m afraid you’re going to have to find a different way of greatly improving your dribbling and winning attitude.

Holy Processed Meat, Batman!

Over here in the UK we have a supermarket chain called Asda (or, if you live in Wales like me, it’s referred to as Asdas) and somewhere along the line, I came across some new products they’re selling:

Officially licenced Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman burgers, with each burger shaped like the hero’s logo.

And hey, look at the variation – Batman gets your basic beef burger; Superman gets beef and cheese; while Wonder Woman gets beef, cheese and bacon!

Sorry, Bats, I don’t care if you offer me a side order Bat-sausage:

Wonder Woman’s got bacon. I’m off to Asdas on Themyscira.
