Snark Free Corner for 9/17

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

Enjoy!

COOL COMIC THINGS

This week’s cool comic thing is….MIND BLASTS!

Like dotted lines to denote Invisible Woman becoming invisible, or the very concept of a word balloon, mind blasts are an unsung comic book tool used to denote to us readers when a character is using telepathy or telekinesis.

When someone’s powers are to do something with their minds, it is pretty darn hard to depict, and as a result, the reader would be left confused – if not for the idea of just drawing blasts of energy COMING from the person’s head!

Rachel would appear to just be standing there like a dummy if it we didn’t see the mind blast coming from her head!

Jean Grey would look like she brought a knife to a gun fight if we didn’t see the mind blast coming from her head…

Professor X would look like he’s just having a headache if we didn’t see the mind blasts coming from his head…

I’m pretty sure Psylocke’s mind blades actually ARE visible nowadays…but before, they weren’t…they were just awesome…MIND BLASTS!!

So yeah, give mind blasts their due, people! They are a cool comic thing!

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!

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

If the Legion of Superheroes suddenly had to be only seven members – who would you have on the team (I really should say “Which six members would you have on the team in addition to Brainiac Five?”)?

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover of a Spider-Man comic featuring J. Jonah Jameson on the cover withOUT Spider-Man also being on the cover…

Floating heads don’t count!

I am not even sure if this Amazing cover (which you can’t use!) would count or not, but it is the lclosest I’VE come, so I’d be quite impressed if you find one!

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!

This one is tough, so TWO cool points if you find one!
