Martian Manhunter guest post!Posted: 01/03/2014 Filed under: Characters, DC 2 Comments
I wrote a guest article for The Speech Bubble! Read it here! After you read/skim it, please go and read/skim every other comic book website on the Internet. Every one. The spandex-and-punching community embraces and loves each other! Except those dudes on YouTube who spend eight minutes every week screaming about Superior Spider-Man. Ignore them.
I deeply esteem both Arousing Grammar and GothamRogue, so bumping into a post written by Jason for The Speech Bubble was a delightful surprise for me.
Doug Mahnke loves to draw ironic superhero stories like the one Arousing Grammar summarized so well. Some years ago Mahnke created a lot of ironic superhero comics with the awesome writer named John Arcudi: in my opinion, they are one of the best artistic couple we’ve ever seen in comics.
If you haven’t read the masterpieces they created together, do yourself a favor and buy their funniest work, that is to say the Lobo/Mask crossover. Every single page of that miniseries will make you laugh heartily. I read it innumerous times, and each time I take it from the shelf it still makes me laugh till I cry.
Another remarkable work by Arcudi & Mahnke is this one: http://www.darkhorse.com/Books/17-070/The-Complete-Major-Bummer-Super-Slacktacular-trade-paperback-collection. It’s quite expensive, but believe me, it deserves every single cent of its cost.
