Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays and I’ve been wanting to do something along those lines here.
So, and 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, I’ve mashed up a few comic covers.
Each week 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, and then I force the results on you lovely people.
I have to admit to being really happy with this one, especially getting Green Arrow’s and Hawkman’s hands interacting with Fire and Blue Devil.
Ah, the 90s Justice League didn’t end well, did it?
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.
Experimenting with adding dialogue – you remember when there used to be dialogue on covers, don’t you?
(Shame I forgot to get rid of the bar code!)
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!
So, it’s 1975 once more and the Justice League is fighting the Injustice League of Earth Two. Or the Injustice Gang. Or the Injustice Society. Or some bunch of villains that’s teamed up together and called their group the Injustice Something Or Other.
As always, the groups fight each other one on one:
Hawkman’s legs are being tied together by the Huntress; the Wizard’s thrown a huge banana in the path of the Flash; Green Arrow’s been blinded by the Shade; Batman’s been blinded by Icicle; Aquaman has (somehow) been distracted by the Gambler; and Black Canary is being attacked by Sportsmaster.
Let’s take a closer look at that last one, shall we?
Black Canary has stayed still long enough for Sportsmaster to draw a three part target on her belly in to which he’s ready to throw a dart.
Sportsmaster has no super speed powers, no ability to do that quickly – although all credit to the guy for doing a very good job left handed – and yet Black Canary is just standing there, letting him do that, instead of either blasting him with her canary cry or using one of her Judo moves
Or even just kicking him in the balls, which might be more appropriate for the Sportsmaster.
Man, heroes were so much more polite and accommodating in the 70s.
