OR NOT – I POST COOL, ABSURD, AND/OR
AWESOME PANELS FROM COMIC BOOKS I
READ AS A KID. THIS IS

Memory Monday

Memory Monday – Superman!

Today:

Action Comics

Because no matter what you did to celebrate the Bicentennial, it can’t possibly compare to Superman going back in time to make sure the Declaration of Independence is placed safely on the proper table for its signing.

(From Action Comics #463, Sep. 1976. Written by Cary Bates. Art by Curt Swan and Tex Blaisdell.)

Memory Monday – The Flash!

Some background necessary for this one if you want the full impact…

Once upon a time, the Flash was married. And then his arch-enemy — the evil Reverse-Flash — murdered his wife. Pathos and angst ensued.

Cut to: Years later. The Flash has found new love and is ready to remarry. When on his wedding day, who shows up? Why, the Reverse-Flash, of course! What is he up to? Well, he leads the Flash on a race around the world and eventually spells out his intentions with his speed-trail on the Sahara Desert… (Flash is the red trail; Reverse-Flash is the leading yellow trail.)

 

Flash

 

Blew. My. Mind. (Still does, in a way…) (From The Flash #324, Aug. 1983. Written by Cary Bates. Art by Carmine Infantino and Dennis Jensen.)

Memory Monday – 3/14/11

As promised, it’s time for Memory Monday, an honored tradition going back a whole week!

Firestorm

 

Man, when I was a kid, this blew my mind. Just the idea of someone freezing the entire city and using every single living soul within it as hostages… Damn! (From Fury of Firestorm #4, Aug. 1982. Written by Gerry Conway. Art by Pat Broderick and Rodin Rodriguez.)

Memory Monday – 3/7/11

For absolutely no reason whatsoever, I woke up this morning and decided that every Monday (or at least, every Monday when I remember to do it!) will be Memory Monday here on the BLog. Which basically translates to me posting random panels from comic books I read as a kid. Sometimes I may write a little something about the piece in question; other times I’ll just post it.

The inaugural Memory Monday is…

Because Supergirl punching Darkseid into outer space never gets old. (From Legion of Super-Heroes #294, Dec. 1982. Written by Paul Levitz. Art by Keith Giffen and Larry Mahlstedt.)
