August marks the 75th anniversary of Two-Face's first appearance (Detective Comics #66). To celebrate I figured I'd post a few Two-Face comics throughout the month.

First up is Bruce Timm's 'Two of a Kind' from Batman: Black and White.

The Shocker is a Spider-Man villain that is somewhere in the high-B low-A area. Whenever he and Spider-Man fight, he always gives Spider-Man a hard time. Yet he never quite "hit the big time." I used to think that was because he had no connection to Peter Parker or Peter's friends.

I’m aware I’m on thin ice with Brian’s fans, but it wouldn’t be Brian Braddock for me if he didn’t occasionally get peevish at the ongoing madness of the world of capes. - Al Ewing

Ah, 1970. The "Mod Squad" had been on the air for three years. Over in Britain, "Mod" styles were fading fast, but in offices of DC comics, where "hip" and "trendy" editors were always proud to be in the vanguard of all the latest cultural trends ("vanguard means in the rear, right?"), it was time for Supergirl to get slightly less behind the times, and a new "Mod" outfit was exactly the thing. Creator credits were still too radical for DC back then, but the Internet knows the blame is all on the head of writer/artist Mike Sekowsky.

And that is the tale of how Supergirl hung up her cheerleader frock after, what, 12 years of wearing the exact same thing every day? Something tells me she would have changed things up a lot sooner if not for wanting to avoid a fight with her stick-in-the-mud cousin and his small town Kansas prudery.

Set the wayback machine to Action Comics 273. Supergirl was still staying in the orphanage where Superman had put her, and still wearing the blue frock that looked like it had started life as a cheerleader costume. The sartorial madness of 70's era Supergirl was still a decade in the future. In the straitlaced world of 1961 comics, when a heroine needed a makeover, they didn't go to the tailor, their alter ego went to the hairdresser. And they did it by asking the readers to participate in a poll.

Mod Post: Off-Topic Tuesday

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

The atrocious events in Charlottesville aroused the ire and blanket condemnation of pretty much everyone (Even senior Republicans were straightforward about that), with one notable exception of course.

As one commentator put it, when the people who made the Tiki Torches the White Supremacists were using (Adding a quirky, yet jejeune aspect to their hate march), offers a more literate and resounding put-down of their actions than the President of the United States, it's a REALLY depressing, and worrying, situation to be in.

Oh, and when juvenile brinksmanship tactics bringing the world that bit closer to a possible nuclear exchange is STILL the SECOND worst thing you've done in a week, words really do fail.

A 1940's Anti-Nazi film has gone viral on youtube and might be worth a watch

At the other end of the scale, the new "Duck Tales" premiere aired, to very good reviews, and Disney have made the whole episode available on their Youtube channel if you're in the US. The rest of us can just... wait, I suppose.

Also, new Scrooge McDuck David Tennant is continuing his steamrolling through every cartoon, fantasy and sci-fi franchise he can think of by not only returning for the next season of "Jessica Jones" as Killgrave, but also by being cast in the long awaited TV production of Neil Gaiman's and Sir Terry Pratchett's brilliant "Good Omens". Tennant will play Crowley (a cynical, rather jaded demon) against Michael Sheen's Aziraphale (a fussy but equally jaded angel) as both seek to deal with the imminent Apocalypse, and the apparent absence of the Antichrist they've been expecting.

Brexit shambles on with the gracefulness of an inebriated yak... and the way things are going I think I'd rather have the inebriated yak running it.

Happy 70th Indian Independence day for today (and slightly belated happy Pakistan Independence Day for yesterday!)

"Wonder Woman" picked up most of the movie categories at the Teen Choice awards. But in an inspiring choice which gives me some hope for the future, Teen Vogue did NOT livetweet it as one might expect, but instead, spent the time calling out White Supremacist terrorist bullshit.

The tone and ending of the forthcoming Justice League movie are being changed, most likely (but perhaps not 100%) due to Joss Whedon coming on board. Originally intended to end with Steppenwolf, the bad guy, being defeated, but Darkseid arriving on Earth anyway (making the whole movie essentially a lead in for a sequel), Darkseid will now not appear, giving the movie an actual ending of it's own.

Oh, and I can recommend the podcast The Orbiting Human Circus (of the air) from some surreal, quirky diversions as we peer into the life of a janitor working in the Eiffel Tower, home of the world's most popular radio show and it's unusual acts?

'While I was pitching Wil Moss on my Kingpin miniseries, he took over the Inhumans characters. The week he started overseeing them, I emailed him and was like, "Can I do a Quake series?" And he was like, "Uh, maybe." I pitched a Quake series, and he read it and was like, "I really love this, but I don’t know that we can do it." And he was like, "But would you want to do a team book with Quake as the leader?"' - Matthew Rosenberg

"The only thing worse than what the Purple Man did to her originally is the thought of what he could do to her now that she has a child. Writing this has been so scary. This is scary stuff. This is psychological horror unlike anything I think I’ve ever seen in mainstream comics. We’ll see what people think." -- Brian Michael Bendis

'That small scene, um, generated a brief rash of outraged posts and emails to DC from the Work Far Too Hard At Being Offended crowd. "Byrne portrays Superman as a child molester!!" Happily, this was more than counterbalanced by responses from female readers who thought the scene was "beautiful". I guess they got it!' - John Byrne

Long time no post. This week I manually backed up my photobucket account and deleted it (shakes fist at greedy monkeys who run Photobucket). In the process, I found some scans that I uploaded there but never posted here. So without further ado, here is Evangeline #2, "Hate Boat," from 1984. The entire issue was online for a while on artist Judith Hunt's webpage, but the site's gone, so have 9/28 pages.

For those who weren't here last time, my post on Evangeline #1 is here. The TL/DR: an old sadly never-reprinted series by Chuck Dixon and Judith Hunt. In the 22nd century, Evangeline is a nun who performs black ops and assassinations for the Vatican. Cross the church and she'll be sent to cross you out.

Evangeline #2 fc

Evangeline vs a lot of bad guys, poor bad guys )And yes, because Chuck Dixon was doing the writing, the next issue features dinosaurs, as well as the final fate of Mr. Frye.

But because the mid 80's were a dark time for indie comics publishers, it took 3 years for the dinosaur issue to appear - Comico went under, then the company that picked up the series went under after putting out a special (which just reprinted issues 1 and 2), then finally First Comics braved the curse and published 12 more issues. Dixon and Hunt parted ways after the first 4, though, and the latter part of the run doesn't quite have the same élan.

Tags I am not able to add: creator: Judith Hunt, char: Evangeline, publisher: Comico, title: Evangeline
