Snark Free Corner for 6/4

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

Enjoy!

COOL COMIC THING

You know what was an interesting feature on most Silver Age comics featuring a group of characters?

FLOATING HEADS!!!

Floating heads were awesome, as they were mostly used on covers to remind readers that, hey, this is a team book, even if only a single character is being featured!

This allowed artists to create some pretty dramatic layouts, as they did not have to feel constrained by having to include the entire team in the drawing…

You might say, “But Brian, isn’t that the point of the corner group shot?”

To that, I would say – “No way, Jose! The cover group shot is not featured as prominently as floating heads.”

I especially like it when the floating heads react to the scene on the cover, like they’re watching the cover the same as us…

Floating Heads on Covers…a cool comic thing!

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

Accurately explain Scarlet Witch’s powers in less than twenty words.

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Name me a cover of the first volume (the one with 402 issues) of Avengers that featured only ONE Avenger on the cover (and remember, only one cover per commenter) like the following cover (and NOT COUNTING the following cover) that just features the Black Knight.

The corner roster shots don’t count as being part of the cover, but floating heads on the cover do!

Good luck!
