Something about the recent Birds of Prey solicits has been bothering me, but I couldn’t put my finger on it until today… Not even remotely NSFW images after the cut
Kate Beaton reveals how things really went down in the old Superman comics, from the perspective of everyone’s favourite hard hitting journalist. It all makes sense now.
I love how well Beaton has captured Lois and Supes’ fab Forties looks. View the rest of the hilarious strips at Hark! A Vagrant.
Lois is tough as nails and doesn’t take shit from nobody, she’s the best! I get the impression that she was not always handled in the best way by the Comic Lords, like people made her too much of a pest and love-dumb over Superman or some unappealing shit (yes I have seen those “Superman’s Girlfriend” comics). Gimme a break! This woman has more important things to do, like win all the Pulitzers.
I’m sorry I didn’t review Last Stand of New Krypton #2 when it first came out, because this past week I caught some random cold and, after getting home from work, have been totally incapable of thinking coherently about anything for longer than 5 seconds.
So until I have the energy to care about what’s happening in comics again, I hereby present the GREATEST THING EVAR – Kate Beaton’s superrific Hark! A Vagrant, crossing over into another of my fandoms!
I would totally read that Aquaman!
