Comic Book Easter Eggs – Katie Power Smoking a Joint?!
Every week, I will be sharing with you three comic book “easter eggs.” An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ‘em all out and enjoy! Also, click here for an archive of all the easter eggs featured so far! If you want to suggest an easter egg for a future column, e-mail me at email@example.com (do not post your suggestion in the comments section!).
Today we take a look at little Katie Power seemingly smoking a joint, Clark Kent appearing in an issue of Daredevil and the Three Stooges being bad guys in an issue of Marvel Premiere.
First up, based on a suggestion by reader Jay F., is Power Pack #20 by Bob McLeod. Earlier in the issue, McLeod established that the cold weather was making it so that their breath was visible.
Later in the issue, McLeod had a little fun with this by drawing a joint in little Katie Power’s hand to go along with her visible breath…
Pretty funny (if a bit odd)!
Next up, based on a suggestion from reader Rodrigo V., we see Clark Kent reporting on the death of Mysterio in Daredevil #8 by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti…
Finally, MJ suggested this bit from George Perez in Marvel Premiere #46 where the Three Stooges appear as villains fighting Man-Wolf…
That’s it for this week!
