Snark Free Corner for 4/23

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

COOL COMIC THINGS

This weekend, I attended the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo in Columbus, Ohio.

It was most certainly a cool comic thing.

The most amusing aspect to me was how there was a doll convention at the same convention center, and it was MUCH more crowded than SPACE – but that’s most likely because of all the OPTIONS that fans have nowadays for comic book conventions.

SPACE isn’t even the only comic book convention this past weekend that was designed specifically for small press comics! The Alternative Press Expo was ALSO this past weekend, only on the Left Coast!

It is a good time for comic fans – especially fans of mini-comics.

I got a whole pile of mini-comics – so expect some new reviews this week!

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.

Good luck! This one is pretty tough, but I thought last week’s was tough, and it was solved quickly, so only ONE cool point this week!

Who has a cooler costume – The Flash or Wonder Woman?

COVER HOMAGE

Here’s how this one works.

I give you a cover, and you have to tell me a comic cover that homages this cover.

You get a cool point for each cover (one cool point per commenter, so one single commenter can’t just blow it all in one fell swoop), with double the cool points for any cover homage from three on (as I can only think of two homages myself, offhand)…

Here’s the twist, though – you cannot use a cover drawn by Kevin Maguire himself.

Oooooh…trickier, eh?
