100 Issues Ago February 2011

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?

The Keith Giffen DOOM PATROL never really seemed to take off with most comics fans – the weirdness (of which there was plenty) didn’t seem to be weird enough for fans of the Grant Morrison run, and the humour (again, there was plenty) didn’t seem to impress them either.

For me, it was a delight – I’m a fan of Giffen’s work and will give most of his stuff a try, and I happen to think Ambush Bug is a perfect fit for the team.

I think this issue was the start of the end, though, as it was cancelled at #22, though that might have been partly down to the sales, and partly down to the impending New 52.

Mash-Up #53

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.

Ah, Ambush Bug. No room for him in the post-New 52/Rebirth DCU, I’m afraid.

And poor old Conner Hawke – we barely knew ye . . .
