Comic Book Challenge Day 16

Comic Book Challenge Day 16: Funniest comic book/comic book scene Guardians of the Galaxy Issue #3 had some pretty hilarious moments, and this series so far has had a nice balance of humor, action, and is gearing up for some epic shit. The page I’m including below is one of my favorites, because of the last panel. It’s probably not the “funniest” pages, but it’s a favorite. Do you get what I mean? Like I know some stuff is funnier, but I just like this one more. Yeah, I think you get...

Comic Book Challenge Day 15: A Picture from the comic you’re reading right now. Fantastic Four #601 Today is another easy day. I’ve been reading through Hickman’s run on Fantastic Four and FF, and this is where I am currently at. Well technically, by the time this posts I might be further ahead. I have my wedding coming along, so this is the first of the pre-written posts that I’ve schedule to publish in the correct...

Comic Book Challenge Day 14: Most Recent Comic Wallpaper Iron Man 3 My main desktop is currently sporting Clara Oswin on one screen with the Doctor & Clara on the other (I run dual screens). Before my laptop died about a month ago, I was sporting an Iron Man 3 background with the Mark XLII chilling on the couch. No reasons other than I thought it was cool. Boy, today was an easy...

Comic Book Challenge Day 13

Comic Book Challenge Day 13: A book you’ve read more than five times. Superman #75: The Death of Superman As a kid growing up this was one of the first comics that got me into reading comics on a weekly basis and collecting comics. Before Superman #75 I mostly had random promotional comics. I had known Superman from the movies and various TV shows and cartoon reruns throughout the years. The idea that Superman could die was crazy! I read this comic over and over either out of shock or the sheer insanity of the idea. From this comic I went back and bought all the preceding issues in the story,...

Comic Book Challenge Day 12: A Comic Everyone Should Read Essex County I was planning to go with a stock answer like Watchmen or some other work from Alan Moore like The Killing Joke or V for Vendetta, but when looking at the vast majority of people, I don’t think they could force themselves and sit down to read something along these lines. My choice for today would be Essex County by Jeff Lemire. It’s one of those stories that I think anyone can enjoy or pick up. You don’t need to like hero comics. If you like good drama and human interaction you can enjoy this emotionally...

Comic Book Challenge Day 11: Favorite Comic Book Cartoon Series Batman: The Animated Series I grew up watching old reruns of the old 1960s Batman series, but after seeing the first Burton film when I was eight, I fell in love with the darker side of Batman. When Batman: The Animated Series debuted I was ecstatic. It was something totally new, and serious. It was one of those shows that adults could watch with their kids and be entertained as well. I remember my parents coming into the room and getting drawn into whatever episode was on TV. I think I even remember hearing my dad say, “Damn,...

Comic Book Challenge Day 10

Comic Book Challenge Day 10: Dream VS Match Atomic Robo vs. Iron Man MKI Here’s the thing. Atomic Robo was created by one of science’s greatest minds, Nikola Tesla, and is one of greatest scientist in comics.. Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark is also one of the comic world’s greatest scientific minds. For this match, I’d like to see Tony in his Mark I suit. I think the weapons system would be more on par with unprepared Atomic Robo. It would come down to both of these heroes having to use their brains in order to best the other. I picture the fight ending in a...
