75 Bob Dylan Comic Book References

In honor of Bob Dylan’s 75th Birthday today, I decided to feature seventy-five comic book references to Bob Dylan, whether it is a story named after a song of his, him appearing in the actual comic (or the cover) or him being mentioned in the comic itself (this is basically just the same bit I did for his 70th birthday, just with 5 more references, plus I explained all of he references this time, for those of you who don’t know Dylan songs that well)!

Enjoy!

From around 2009, comic book artists (including Dave McKean!) illustrate Dylan songs…

From Darkstars #17, a reference to Dylan’s song “All Along the Watchtower”…

From Ghost Rider #3, a reference to Dylan’s song “Wheels on Fire”….

From G.I. Joe #2, the introduction of Kwinn the Eskimo, a reference to Dylan’s song “Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn”)…

From Mad Magazine #111….

From Marvel Team-Up #122, a reference to Dylan’s song “A Simple Twist of Fate”…

From Salvation Run #6, an offbeat reference to the lyrics of “All Along the Watchtower” (“‘There must be some way out of here,’ said the joker to the thief”)….

(To learn the origin of the reference, read here)

From Stormwatch Volume 2 #1, a reference to Dylan’s song, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”…

From Stormwatch Volume 2 #11, a reference to both a lyric from Dylan’s song, “Like a Rolling Stone” and also the name of a documentary film about Dylan….

From Thunderbolts #78, a reference to another lyric from Dylan’s song, “Like a Rolling Stone”…

From Watchmen #1, a lyric from Dylan’s “Desolation Row”…

Also from Watchmen #1, more lyrics from “Desolation Row”….

From Betty and Veronica #163, a reference to Dylan’s song, “The Times They Are a-Changin'”….

From Fantastic Four #291, a reference to Dylan’s song, “The Times They Are a-Changin'”…

From 1970, the first independent comic book produced entirely by women, led by Trina Robbins and Barbara “Willy” Mendes, a reference to Dylan’s song, “It Ain’t Me Babe”…
