Super Sisterhood

Super fun (and dietary guidance) from Black Lightning creator Tony Isabella.

Art by Art Saaf & Mike Peppe from the story “Kiss and Run” in NEW ROMANCES #14, 1952.

 

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Costumed superhero woman is changing in an alley when she spots a man and a woman talking.

SUPERHERO: My ex doesn’t realize it, but he’s hooking up with a villainess who will drain all his stamina. Oh, heck, he was a lousy boyfriend in and out of the sack. Who am I to deny a sister a light snack?

Goodbye Riverdale

My thanks to Black Lightning creator Tony Isabella for this alternative take on Riverdale’s red-headed heartthrob.

Super Education

I only had time to dig out and post one of the two panels of original art. Here it is, Princess…

Art by Art Saaf & Mike Peppe from the story “Kiss and Run” in New Romances #14, 1952.

 

Transcript:

CAPTION: Sure, you’re a superhero! But that doesn’t mean you’re invulnerable to
super embarrassment!

How many times have you defeated a crazed villain and then–just moments before plunging to his death–the creep ridicules you because you don’t have a college degree?

MAN: I know it hurts…worse than an atomic wedgie! But now you can earn the respect of the scumbags you battle…with a real degree from the greatest diploma mill in the universe! Comicstown University!

SCENE: Young woman in a commencement graduation cap & gown is embraced by her father (the man from the first panel.) In the background, two older women are talking.

YOUNG WOMAN: With a degree in psychology, I can bash bad guys…and psychoanalyze them!

OLDER WOMAN #1: Wow! Fists of Fury and flaming Freudian philosophy!

OLDER WOMAN #2: That’s a super-powered combo that’ll make any villain cringe!

CAPTION: Comicstown University: We guarantee you’ll get a super education–even if you’re super dumb!

Super Proud

June is Gay Pride Month. So this seemed like a good way to start off the month. I’ll be running other LGBTQ-themed gags about once a week during June.

By the way, this is the first time I’ve posted this comic on the web. But I actually created it last year and turned it into a fridge magnet for the San Diego Comic-Con. Sales at the Prism Comics booth were…well, super!

 

Art by Gill Fox from the cover of Crack Comics #26, Nov. 1942.

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Superhero in short pants, cape and boots is holding an American flag in front of a rainbow-colored background.

CAPTION: Truth, Justice & Fabulous!
