Comic Book Easter Eggs - Breaking Bad Easter Eggs!

In this feature, I share with you three comic book "easter eggs." An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check 'em all out and enjoy! Also, click here for an archive of all the easter eggs featured so far! If you want to suggest an easter egg for a future column, e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com (do not post your suggestion in the comments section!).

Today we take a look at some Breaking Bad easter eggs!

First up, we have a suggestion by two readers, Elliott S. and Matt, who noted that Mateus Santolouco had Walter White, in his Heisenberg get-up, appear at a meeting of crime bosses in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #27...

As you can see, the head of the Morlocks, Storm, was also there (in the mohawk look she adopted soon after taking control of the Morlocks). So were the Warriors (as noted by jazzbo). I presume everyone else in that panel (besides the big guy smiling with his hands together, as he is a TMNT character) is meant to be either a famous criminal or from a famous gang. Anyone?

Heisenberg showed up again later in the issue (and you could argue that that's Jesse Pinkman next to him, but that's a bit unclear)...

Next, in a recent Grimm Fairy Tales: The Dark Queen one-shot by writers Joe Brusha, Eric M. Esquivel and artists Lalit Kumar Sharma and Jagdishi Kumar, we see that the Dark Queen has been drawn to our reality, in part, because of the fictional heroes we've chosen to embrace...

Don Draper and Dexter also make an appearance, as you can see.

Finally, in Amazing Spider-Man #697, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Dan Green and John Dell gives us a funny visual easter egg when he shows what Harry Osborn is looking like while he's on the run (after kidnapping his half-brother to rescue the young boy from their father, Norman Osborn)...

Matt also mentioned a G.I. Joe Heisenberg cameo, but I can't seem to find it. Anyone?

Andy Kuhn commented that he included the cast of Breaking Bad as zombies in the one-shot Mars Attacks! Robots vs. Zombies. Here it is...

And an anonymous commenter noted that Giuseppe Camuncoli also put Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the background of a panel in Superior Spider-Man #5...

That last one is a bit of a stretch but I am inclined to agree, especially based on Camuncoli's earlier bit with Harry's hairdo.

Okay, that's it for this edition! If YOU have a suggestion for a future installment of Comic Book Easter Eggs, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com!
