Follow the fun starting Thursday!!


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!





Which of the six founding members of Image (McFarlane, Liefeld, Lee, Valentino, Larsen and Silvestri) is the best writer? Which one is the best artist?


This week's game is as follows...

Fine me a cover featuring Sue Dibny on it...

Floating heads don't count!

Here is an example (which you can't use!)....

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!


Remember, tell me who it is and what number clue gave it away!

1. This creator was the regular artist on the Justice League.................2. This creator also writes comic books.................3. This creator fairly recently drew Spider-Man for a series.................4. This creator is the current editor-in-chief for a comic company................5. This creator is currently writing a funny animal comic book.

Who is it?

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

Hope you had fun!
