That’s right – I’m going twice weekly on the mash-up front. I’ve got so far ahead of myself on these, I thought I’d spread the joy!
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, and have mashed up a few comic covers.
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.
On the off-chance there are any DC writers/artists reading this, if you could make this scene happen in a DC comic book, I will cheerfully give you $100.
There is simply not enough Heckler in this world.
Or at least miniature pictures of characters. Sort of.
Looking back at some old copies of Justice League America and Justice League Europe recently and I remembered the little pictures of characters that used to appear in the issue number box on DC comics back in the early 90s.

JLE fared a little better:
and even managed to get a few more in after their revamp and new members:
I’d thought for a while that JLA/JLE were the only titles with those but a quick look through my collection turned up these from Green Lantern:
A couple from the Justice Society
(There was a Wildcat one but he was largely obscured by the cover art) as well as some odds and sods:
A little detail on the cover which always appealed to me for some reason.
