This is a good example of the differences between Marvel & DC, especially when it came to race relations. In the Green Lantern books, DC was just starting to address the issue of racism. They didn’t do it with a black superhero, but instead had a one-off character point out that Hal is a racist.

Marvel had already established a few black superheros by the early 70s, some even headlined their own book. Chief among them was Black Panther, who is literally attacked by Klansmen attempting to burn him on a cross. Clearly one publisher had a more subtle approach to this topic than the other.

But while everyone knows the "black skins" speech from GL #76, I think the Black Panther panel is much more powerful. It doesn’t (for lack of a better term) white-wash the issue of racism by reducing it to a soundbite. Instead it shows racism at it’s purest and most disgusting. It shows that even though he’s a superhero and a king, T’Challa was treated like any other black man in America.

Remember when anime DVDs used to come with weird crap? I think this keychain was from the Geneon release of Secret of Mamo.

Nice!

I’ve got one of those, too!

Why is it that I only want to draw when I’m at work, but when I get home I just want to go to bed.

Just imagine the Avengers going to Ikea, and Thor is the only one who can pronounce the name of anything. 

This is disproportionately hilarious to me.

HOWARD THE DUCK by Frank Brunner (1976)

I got to meet Frank Brunner about a year and a half ago, and he was selling shirts with this image on them. Sadly, they weren’t in my size.
Which is a shame, since I would’ve worn it everywhere. Damn you, unhealthy amounts of body fat!
