Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!
COOL COMIC THINGS
Returning characters from the dead.
I understand that it is a tight line to walk, but I think that, when the character is cool enough, does it really matter?
In this past issue of Checkmate, we saw the return of…RICK FLAG!
Yes, the same Rick Flag who detonated a nuclear bomb inside a mountain – but whatever, it’s Rick Flag, man!!
Rick Flag was a cool character.
Likewise, another Suicide Squad member was returned to us recently named Nemesis.
Nemesis had an issue DEVOTED TO HIS DEATH. And when I say devoted to his death, I mean it was specifically designed so that we would know that he was, in fact, d-e-a-d dead.
And now he’s back!!
I am so pleased.
Now we only need to see Ice and Ted Kord return.
WHO’S YER FAV’RIT…
original member of the Guardians of the Galaxy?
One cool point to the first person who can tell me which cover this Punisher War Journal cover is homaging!
Here is an archive of past cover homages!
SNARK FREE CHALLENGE
Who can solve a riddle faster – Batman or Superman with Super-Intelligence?
COVER THEME GAME
Here’s the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.
One cool point to the person who first guesses correctly!
Well, that’s it for this installment of Snark Free Corner.
Hope you had fun!
