Snark Free Corner for 7/9

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

Enjoy!

ALL KINDS OF PILLS TO GIVE US ALL KINDS

This feature is where we examine the first cover appearance of various comic book characters.

This week – the Incredible Hulk Supporting Cast!!

Betty Ross and Thunderbolt Ross both showed up very early, on the very first Hulk cover ever!!

Rick Jones had to wait a LITTLE while, showing up on the third issue of the series.

The Leader first showed us his huge forehead a couple of issues after making his debut…

Glenn Talbot did not have to wait TOO long before he made his cover debut…

The Abomination only had to wait an issue to show up on a cover…

Hulk’s sidekick for a time was Jim Wilson. He made a cover appearance in his second appearance…

Check THIS out…BACK-TO-BACK issues featuring notable cover debuts (and regular debuts, as well)…

First, Jarella was on the cover to Hulk #140…

Next, Doc Samson showed himself on Hulk #141….

There really weren’t any notable additions to the Hulk title until the U-Foes made their cover debut in their first appearance…

The last notable addition to the Hulk’s supporting cast (not counting his Planet Hulk pals, who are a bit recent to put on this thing) was Marlo Chandler, who waited about FIFTY issues before she showed up on a cover – and when she did – she was DEAD on the cover!!!

Well, that’s all, folks!

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!

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

What was the better Grant Morrison run, writing-wise, JLA or New X-Men?

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover featuring the original five X-Men (Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey).

The catch is – the comic has to have been published AFTER X-Men #1 (so in the last 16 years) AND the comic can’t be a flashback series like X-Men: First Class.

For example (and you can’t use this one!), this Uncanny X-Men cover…

And remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
