I think I remember the New 52 covering super early intern-like work Clark did, but I'm pretty sure that was post schooling--if he had any at all? Hmm... #comics
You know, I've been thinking about something...do any comics cover Clark Kent's college years? He became a journalist, so I assume he went to journalism school? But I'm not sure I can recall any comics that explore that off the top of my head? #comics
This is a fascinating thread. I actually loved the pink elephants sequence as a kid.
Sadly, the Marville trade only includes 6 of the 7 issues.
Issue 7 is the submission guidelines for Epic Comics--Marvel's new publishing initiative they launched in 2002 or 2003. #comics
In the first issue, Ted Turner and Jane Fonda send their son (Kal-AOL...GET IT???) back in time to the 2000's because meteors were destroying the earth in the future. In the 2nd issue, Black Panther and Iron Man are stopped from being assholes by Rush Limbaugh. #comics
@InspectorCaracal You don't ever have to apologize for cursing around me, lol.
I don't know what a Gainax anime is, but if it's as hilarious an inept as Marville, it must be amazing. 😂
This comic starts as a parody in the first two issues. Issue 3, rather than publishing word bubbles, just prints the script over the images. Issues 4 & 5 are a bizarre philosophical treatise on creation and religion, and issue 6 is literally just a recap. #comics
I hate myself a little bit, but I found a used trade of Marville at my LCS and...well...I couldn't help myself. #comics
@InspectorCaracal Same. I was also an angry youth, and their music gave voice to the powerlessness and frustration I felt.
I love the jokes about Superman finding his underwear, but I realized while reading Peter Tomasi's Rebirth run he totally addresses that Supes still has his red trunks suit. Jon even makes fun of him for the suit with the "underwear." #comics
@McQ No, my dog woke me up because he was thirsty and then I couldn't go back to sleep, lol.
@nuhn my dog woke me up. he was thirsty. *sigh*
Bi. 🌈 he/him. Horror writer. Comics blogger. I know way too much about 90's kids' shows. It's sad.
