Snark Free Corner for 5/20

Sorry, this should have been up yesterday, but the server went down for a bit!

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

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE DEBATE

Which Legion was cooler – Abnett and Lanning’s or McGraw/Peyer/Stern’s?

The McGraw/Peyer/Stern Legion was notable in the way that, along with artists Jeffrey Moy and Lee Moder, it portrayed the Legion as heroes in the mold of the old Binder, Siegel, Hamilton and Shooter days.

The Abnett and Lanning stories were noted by their artist, as well, as Olivier Coipel had a darker feel to his work than Moy and Moder, and the D’n’A stories were a good deal darker.

Both runs spotlighted characterizations as a key part of their writing.

Which one do you Legion fans like better?

Let me know – and remember, in the debate, no snarkiness allowed!!

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!
