Comic Book Easter Eggs – Will Gotham City’s Cops Solve Bendis’ Murder?

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!).

Travis Pelkie suggested the first easter egg, from Gotham Central #3…


Very cute bit from either Michael Lark or Ed Brubaker.

Also, once these people are murdered, they are sent to the Kane County Morgue, as noted in Gotham Central #2…


Reader Charlie E. noted that Jim Shooter would occasionally make references to Iron City Beer, a real life brand of beer from Shooter’s native Pittsburgh. Here is such a nod from Secret Wars II #7…


Reader Rebecca M. points out how in Chase #1,000,000, the various Chase agents use “icons” to temporarily adopt superhero powers (like a Booster Gold icon would give you a force field like Booster Gold). Note some of the icons…


Okay, that is it for this week! Thanks for all the neat suggestions, folks!!
