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.
This was the one that, after I did it, I decided I had to own the issues rather than having them marked in my database as wanted; I could only find a low-res scan of the Green Lantern cover, hence the size:
Ah, casual sexism in the 1960s, from Justice League of America #66.
Where else would you see one of the most powerful and iconic female heroes reduced to a home organising shrew complete with apron and feather duster?
As an aside, what the hell is a “psonic computer“?
There I was yesterday, catching up on the blogs I follow, when I saw this post over at Dale’s blog. Long time readers might recognise Dale as being the most prolific commenter here, and also supplied the script for Boy Wonders Part 2. He has a good thing going with skits using action figures but the latest one I linked to . . . * sigh * . . . he’s using a Lego character, and I had to respond . . .
Power Girl’s right – Hal is an idiot.
Hope you like it, Dale!
This is a genuine ad from 1977 where DC were touting stories “featuring the mightiest heroes of our time!”
I’ve blurred the list of names and the cover of the comic.
Before you click the read more link below, take a guess at which five heroes (because of course they’re all men, this was the 70s after all) will star in this comic. I’ll give you a clue – Superman wasn’t one of them.
Have your guesses ready . . .
