L.E.G.I.O.N. ’92 #44 (August, 1992) A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall. Barry Kitson / Rod Ramos / Shep Hendrix

There are still 28 references left. ;)

Who’s John Rocker?

Baseball player who had some nasty things to say about New Yorkers (mostly racist stuff).

I vaguely remember hearing about that at the time. But I never pay attention to baseball, so I’d forgotten.

That Rasl one is basically a continuation of the Rasl reference in the last batch. It’s grasping a bit to stretch that out to two references in this list.

It’s a whole other issue. It’s grasping a bit to complain about that.

I would have thought that first one from The Mighty was a stretch, given that Dirge could just be a literal reference to the word and not the Dylan song. The other Mighty issue titles definitely do help build a case for it, although not as much as if EVERY Mighty issue were named after a Dylan song.

And now I’m sad all over again that Invincible finally broke its streak of using old sitcom titles for all the trades. It was doing so well, too.

Right, as you note, it is the fact that the other ones are Dylan references (and the fact that Tomasi has done other obscure Dylan references) that cinches Dirge as a Dylan reference.
