Bizarro Back Issues: The Strange Saga Of Captain Strong (1973)

Strong00

I love crossovers. Even when they don't really work that well or make a whole lot of sense, it's almost always interesting seeing how characters that don't usually hang out bounce off of each other -- and it's especially fun when you've got a character like Superman. That guy's such a well-known, well-defined cultural institution that there has to be a huge temptation to see how he interacts with pretty much anyone else, even if you don't actually have the rights to do the real thing.

But really, that's the magic of comics. Even if you can't get the genuine article, you can always file off the serial numbers and do your own version and get the same effect. Sort of. And that's how Superman ended up spending a good chunk of the '70s hanging out with Captain Strong, a thinly veiled stand-in for Popeye the Sailor Man who was addicted to alien seaweed.

Fox News Said Some Incredibly Stupid Bullsh*t About Comics Again [Video]

Fox01

The great thing about Fox News is that it's only Tuesday and you're already about to see the dumbest thing you'll see all week.

In this case, it's a clip from Fox's weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman's upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman's costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee's redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.

No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.

popeye2previewmain

Anchor-tattooed forearms are flailing behind fists of fury on the cover of Popeye #2. Out this Wednesday from IDW, the second issue of Roger Langridge and Ken Wheaton's new Popeye series will pit the spinach-guzzling sailor man against famous actor Willy Wormwood.
