Bizarro Back Issues: ‘The Return Of Planet Krypton!’ (1953)

return01

It probably goes without saying that here at ComicsAlliance, we've been thinking a lot about shocking returns this week, and not just because they'e a pretty well-worn plot device. We've had some first-hand experience with it over the past few days, and I'm not gonna lie: They can be pretty surreal. Of course, we only have the return of a website to talk about, so I can't even imagine how strange it would be if, say, an entire planet came back from the dead one day.

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘The Robot War Of Smallville’ (1957)

robotwar01

In a lot of ways, Superboy is one of DC's best stabs at capturing the kind of wish fulfillment character that Captain Marvel perfected. It's one of the simplest ideas in comics, taking all the powers of Superman and compressing them down into a pint-sized package that also went to school and was secretly way cooler and smarter than any of his classmates who probably didn't even know about the Bottle City of Kandor.

If you're a regular reader of the Bizarro Back Issues column, then you may have realized that I've been reading through some of the "classic" '90s X-Men stories lately. A few weeks ago, I broke down the mind-boggling saga of Gambit's ex-wife and Ghost Rider fig

The Sheer Radness Of ‘Surf’s Up, Joker’s Under’ (1967)

If you asked a bunch of comic fans what the greatest Joker story of all time was, I imagine you'd get a variety of answers. Some would probably point to Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's The Killing Joke, which raised the bar for the Joker's criminal madness. Others might

Bizarro Back Issues: Remember That Time Four Jugheads Fought Morgan Le Fay In The Future? (1991)

Over the past few years, I've been completely thrilled by the new approach that Archie Comics has taken with their characters. The Life With Archie series, the introduction of Kevin Keller, crossovers with Glee and KISS, it's all been interesting to see, and pretty entertaining to read. But it's not the

Bizarro Back Issues: How Gambit’s Wife Got The Ghost Rider Possessed By Aliens (1992)

gambit01

Like a lot of people my age, I have a lot of affection for early '90s X-Men comics. Their combination of bright colors, superpowers built entirely around punching things with knives or making them explode, overblown personal conflicts and the least subtle metaphors ever committed to paper made them almost scientifically designed to appeal to kids of that decade. Of course, they're also some o

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘Dastardly Events Aboard The Hellship!’ (1978)

hellship01

Bob Haney and Jim Aparo were the single greatest creative team that has ever worked on Batman, and if anyone says differently, they are wrong and dumb and I hate them forever.

That might be a bit of an extreme rea

Love Hurts: ‘He’ll Never Love Me Now! I Was Too Blind To See — The Formula Of Love!’

formula01

Ah, romance! As Valentine's Day lingers on the horizon, it is once again time to turn our thoughts -- and our hearts -- to love. Or at least, the truly bizarre and occasionally downright mind-boggling version of love that appears in that most dubious of genres, the Romance Comic. Because really, you can't have enough s
