Enjoy!

SNARK FREE DEBATE

Roger Stern or Steve Englehart?

Whose Avengers do you like better?

Steve Englehart burst on to the Avengers scene following Roy Thomas, and he produced a great deal of the most memorable Avengers comics of the time, doing one of the best runs of the 1970s period.

Roger Stern followed Jim Shooter on the Avengers in the 1980s, and also put in a tremendous run on the title, with some notable storylines, as well.

Englehart used more of a traditional lineup, while Stern used more of a unique team.

Both had their pet characters (Mantis for Englehart, Captain Marvel for Stern).

But at the end of the day, which run do you think was better?

Let me know!!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!

NOTE: While obscure, the connective theme for this week really amuses me, probably more so than it should, but since it is so amusing to me, I am going to give TWO cool points to the first person to figure it out!!

1.


2.

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

Make up your ideal six-member Suicide Squad team, with the rule that four of the six have to be supervillains and Deadshot has to be on the team.

Find me a cover (other than a Green Lantern title) featuring Arisia on it.
