Hawkwoman:
"I DARE RANN TO ATTACK US!"


Hawkwoman has a message for anyone who thinks her recent marital problems have distracted her from the big Rann Thanagar war:

"I'm fighting mad, and I'm ready for anything. Katar and I are fine, the whole thing was a silly misunderstanding caused by the National Enquirer. We are suing them right now. It's taking some time because our lawyer is blind, and we have to translate all the documents into Braille. But they will pay for their crimes! So will Rann. They say Rann has some new super weapon? Bring it on! I DARE RANN to attack us! We'll wipe up the floor with those science-loving geeks from Rann. Tweety - tweeta - tweet! That's Thanagarian bird-song language for 'Death to Rann!' "

Super Parodies of Superman

Superman #1 by Joe Schuster; Ambush Bug #1 by Keith Giffen; and Supreme #1 by Jerry Ordway, which is not really a parody but more of a tribute, as is the whole series under Alan Moore. (And yes, I know it's actually Supreme #41 -- but it SHOULD have been number one. Let's do a retcon and MAKE it number one!)

New FF movie poster

Here's a new Fantastic Four movie poster. Once again, we see lame positioning, and a heavily Photoshopped look. Ben's head is cut off for no reason, Johnny's flame is almost invisible, Sue is not invisible enough, Reed looks a bit evil, and it's not even immediately clear that he is stretching his arms! Have these poster-makers never seen a perfectly-posed FF cover or pin-up by Jack Kirby? It's not like they're in short supply.

by Jim Mooney

I recently had lunch with three members of the Legion of Super Heroes: Lightning Lad, Sun Boy and Cosmic Boy. Afterwards, we all posed for this great sketch by my old "Dial H for HERO" series artist Jim Mooney. Click the pic or here for a bigger version.
