ChannelEvil (2)

Last month, I didn’t get a chance to finish all of these before I went to the convention in Seattle, and then I was busy when I got back. So this month, we get a double dose of trades and books I’ve read and such. That means this is really long, and I apologize for that!

Comic Book Easter Eggs – Terry Austin Popeye Easter Eggs!

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 bcronin@comicbookresources.com (do not post your suggestion in the comments section!).

This week, all the easter eggs are Popeye cameos by the great Terry Austin!

Enjoy!

Lookin’ to Connect: Justice League: A Midsummer’s Nightmare #1-3, Web of Spider-Man #6/Amazing Spider-Man #268 and Wonder Man #22-25

This is the latest installment of a feature where I spotlight interconnecting covers. I will feature three selections each installment, with my current plan being to feature one diptych, one triptych and one tetraptych (or larger). Here is an archive of all of the covers listed so far. I am sure you have suggestions for future editions, so feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com with your suggestions for future installments. Don’t post suggestions in the comments section!

This edition is based entirely on an e-mail reader Tom T. sent me. I liked how he sent me exactly a diptych, a triptych and a tetrapytch. Obviously, of course, other people also sent the same suggestions, I just liked how his suggestions were exactly enough for a column.

Enjoy!
