Snark Free Corner for New Year’s Eve

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

Enjoy!

UNSUNG COMICS

It gets a bit overlooked, and don’t get me wrong, as he wrote it himself, it is not as good as the comics in which he merely plotted, but Keith Giffen’s PunX is still an overlooked, funny comic.


PunX was basically a lesser form of Ambush Bug, and a lot of the “lesser” part of it came from the fact that a lot of the “in-jokes” were at the expense of Valiant Comics (who made the book), which had a bit of a lesser stature to be made fun of.

Still, the end result was still a humorous comic, that was basically “Mad Magazine on Valiant Comics.”

I especially liked the job they did making fun of Valiant’s “Birthquake” storyline.

Any other fans of PunX out there?
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!
