Bizarro Back Issues: OMAC And The City Of The Super-Rich!! (1974)


On the off chance that you missed it, yesterday was Jack Kirby's birthday. The King of Comics would've been 95, and it probably won't surprise anyone to learn that here at ComicsAlliance, we've been thinking a lot about the man and his contributions to the medium this week...

Bizarro Back Issues: Supergirl Battles Black Flame — The Maid of Menace! (1963)


It wasn't that long ago that the Bizarro Back Issues column turned its focus to Action Comics #304 and "The Interplanetary Olympics," but there was something I didn't mention in the write-up of that story...

Bizarro Back Issues: Batman Dominates ‘The Olympic Games of Space’ Because Of Course He Does (1958)


A few weeks back, I talked about Superman's ill-fated trip to the Interplanetary Olympics. In that story, the Man of Steel claimed that he could've won if he wanted to, but let's face facts here: When it came down to it, Superman let the planet Earth down in the most important outer space sporting event of the '60s...

Bizarro Back Issues: Spider-Man Beats Venom With Beach Nudity (1989)


When I was a kid, I had a paperback called The Very Best of Spider-Man that I read until the binding wore out. Looking back, I might take a slight issue with that title, but it really was a pretty great selection of stories that had a huge impact on making me a fan of the character: "Whatever Happened to Crusher Hogan" is still a favorite to this day, the heartstring-tugging "The Kid Who Collected Spider-Man," and, probably most importantly, "The Final Chapter" from Amazing Spider-Man #33, which still ranks as the single best comic Marvel ever published...

Bizarro Back Issues: The ‘Rainbow Doom’ of Superman (1955)


DC's Silver Age comics get a bad rap sometimes. A lot of people look back on them as silly artifacts of a time when comic book stories were knocked out over lunch hours by people who thought catering to an audience of children meant that they didn't have to make the effort actually make sense, and while that's certainly the case for a few of them, that really sells things short...

Bizarro Back Issues: Ghost Rider Fights All of the Avengers, And Wins (1981)


My favorite thing about the new Avengers movie is how well it took the separate stories and elements of movies like Captain America, Thor and Iron Man and blended them into one big story. It worked so well that I almost wished they would've been able to just go ahead and bring in every Marvel Movie, if only for a few minutes...

Bizarro Back Issues: Robin, Batgirl and the Devil-Worshipping Ghost of Benedict Arnold (1975)


Batman's villains are unquestionably the greatest bad guys in comics. The best of them are compelling, complex characters in their own right that can work in a variety of stories, and even the second-stringers tend to be, at the very least, visually interesting...

Bizarro Back Issues: Superboy Becomes a Super-Man (With Sex) (1977)


As much as I tend to enjoy Superboy stories for their sheer kookiness, I've never really been a big fan of the concept. For the most part, they tend to just be standard Superman stories with Metropolis swapped out for Smallville and a slightly different girl with an alliterative name giving him a headache...

Bizarro Back Issues: Avengers vs. X-Men… vs. Evil Time Traveling Wizard Magic (1985)


This week, Marvel kicked off a big ol' fight between the Avengers and the X-Men in the appropriately named Avengers vs. X-Men. But while the current event promises to be their most important conflict ever, it's hardly the first time those two teams have met up with each other...

Bizarro Back Issues: The Joker Commits Moon Crimes in ‘Public Luna-Tic Number One’ (1969)


Saying that the Joker has done a lot of weird stuff in his time is putting it pretty mildly. From trying to patent poisoned fish to serving as Iranian ambassador to the United Nations, the dude has been up to some pretty strange stuff...
