Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
So I featured a panel from 1986’s Blue Beetle #6 in today’s Comic Book Easter Eggs, but later in that same issue there’s a page that certainly looks like it is referencing SOMEthing, but I can’t figure out who. I even checked with Len Wein, the writer of the issue, and it’s been so long that he can’t remember who he was referencing either.
So I’ll put it to you folks and hopefully someone can figure this one out!
Both Len and I first thought Abbot and Costello from the appearances of the characters (as they look SORT of like Abbot and Costello), but their speech patterns don’t match Abbot and Costello at all, so, well, I really have no idea.
