Comic Book Easter Eggs – The Big Bang Theory Comes to the DCU!

by  in Comic News Comment

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!).

Commenter Cpalustre suggested an easter egg that a few other folks have suggested, this appearance in Power Girl #4 of the Big Bang Theory cast…


It is almost too obvious to count as an easter egg, but let’s say it counts! Amanda Conner did a wonderful job on their likenesses.

Reader Wojtek suggested an intriguing one involving the great German artist Andreas Martens aka Andreas. His most famous work is Rork…


In Silver Surfer #126, drawn by Ron Garney, there appears to be a reference to Rork on the first page…


You might be thinking, “Hey, Brian, that is a pretty specious claim as an easter egg! How do you know Garney is referencing Rork and it wasn’t just a cut-off word or whatever?” Well, later in the issue, there is this page…


that is practically a mirror opposite of this page from Rork…


No way is that a coincidence (okay, I mean, I guess there’s a CHANCE, but not a good one).

What a neat catch by Wojtek! And what a great homage by Garney!

Finally, reader Miguel pointed out a neat bit from Marvel Knights: Spider-Man #6, where Peter and Mary Jane are having lunch when it appears that the Fantastic Four and then the X-Men walk by…


Cute stuff by the Dodsons!
