Snark Free Corner for 8/13

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

Enjoy!

GREAT COMIC ARTISTS

Sadly, the comic world is mourning the loss of one of the best, Mike Wieringo, who died tragically Sunday at the far too young age of 44.

BAKER’S DOZEN

Here are thirteen great Wieringo covers…

First, an amazing quintych he did for Fantastic Four…

Next, a strong introduction to his run on Fantastic Four with Mark Waid…

An eerie FF cover featuring Valeria Richards…

And a sentimentally effective FF cover…

A strong opener to his Tellos series…

A clever Adventures of Superman cover concept…

A striking Sensational Spider-Man cover….

A recent striking Spider-Man/Fantastic Four cover…

A clever Flash cover…

and a way too apropos Robin cover…

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 best run on a comic book that Mike Wieringo did?

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover drawn by Mike Wieringo that features Wolverine on the cover.

Floating heads don’t count!

For example (and you can’t use this one!), this Marvel Holiday Special….

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

This one is tough, though, so TWO cool points per cover!

Good luck!

Well, that’s it for this installment of Snark Free Corner.

See you next week.

And R.I.P. Mike Wieringo. My condolences to his family and friends.
