Snark Free Corner for 8/20

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

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE THEME TIME!

Today’s theme is “Rose is Rose.”

If you ever read the comic strip, “Rose is Rose,” when it first began, most of the humor involved the way the child in the comic talked (he has since grown up a bit, and no longer talks that way). The whole “having a cute little kid talk funny” thing has become quite a theme in comic books through the years…here are some examples…

1. Just recently, Black Canary had an adopted daughter named Sin, who was quite precocious…

2. Many times through the years, Superman has been reduced to infancy.

3. Wonder Woman has been, too, but her most famous youth time is when we were shown stories of Wonder Woman as a toddler, Wonder Tot, who used the old “cute baby talk” routine.

4. The X-Men had their own baby versions, courtesy of Mojo. He first de-aged them, then later created infant clone versions of the X-Men…

They’ve shown up a few times since, usually as whatever lineup the X-Men currently were using…

5. During Sins of Youth, young people and old people switched places, giving Starwoman a handful of infant superheroes to handle in the JSA…

6. Possibly the most notable example of adding a baby to a book is Baby Wildebeest, who showed up to deliver comic relief during a particular grim point in Titans history…

Any other examples I’m missing?

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

Which character do you most associate with the Titans? Robin? Nightwing? Cyborg? Starfire?

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover that features five out of the six classic New Teen Titans (Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Starfire, Raven, Changeling/Beast Boy and Cyborg) on the cover, but is not a comic with Titans in the title.

Floating heads don’t count!

For example (and you can’t use this one!), this Action Comics cover fits….

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
