Snark Free Corner for 7/30

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



I know a lot of people think it is a bit too silly, and please do not misunderstand, I, myself, would probably never do it, but I think that Comic-Con's Masquerade Ball is a pretty darn cool comic thing.

Sadly, there are not that many pictures of this year's event (if you have some, please share!), but here are a few from official Comic-Con photographer B. Brown, including:

The 2007 Masquerade's winner of Best Original Design and the Century Guild company award, "Indian Medusa".

Best Young Fan: Raiden vs. Reptile in Mortal Kombat (worn by Rameal and Ry'n Nabeeh; designed and made by Maria Nabeeh.)

Honorable Mention: Creativity - Josie and the Pussycat Dolls Revue

Cool stuff - I wish I could see more, though!!!

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.

The last couple of weeks haven't seen any correct guesses, so I guess I was a bit too tough with my themes, so this week is a bit easier!

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!





If you could go back and have any story that featured a fill-in artist be drawn by the regular artist, what would it be? The Korvac saga? Kree/Skrull War? Cassie Nova's storyline in New X-Men?


This week's game is as follows...

Find me a cover that features both Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, but is not a Justice League title (so no JLA, JLE, Extreme Justice, etc.)

For example (and you can't use this one!), this Captain Atom cover....

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!


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

1. This character was a member of the X-Men.................2. This character made his/her debut in the pages of X-Factor.................3. This character has superhuman strength.................4. This character was in a group called the Alliance of Evil................5. This character is one of the very few human survivors in the Marvel Zombies universe (that narrows it down to about six possible people).

Who is it?

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

Hope you had fun!
