    These are so close to actual Nintendo characters that I could see Antarctic Press being sued. No one would look at the right side of that drawing and not think it was Samus.

    This has to be the most humiliating moment in Batman's career......having to be saved by Lois Lane.
    Also, kryptonite? Mixing up weaknesses, are we?

    It was around this time Tonya was the most famous person in the world, for the wrong reasons. I wonder how many people will recognize the star of this comic today.
    See how many 90's celebrities you can name. (Trump should be easy..)

    This is "Funnyworld," a zine started by animation historian Michael Barrier that blossomed into a real magazine gradually. Look at the gallery; it's quite the transformation.

    Would you by any chance have more Marvelous Maureen issues? I'm going nuts trying to get them all - I had every issue from my comic-collecting days, but, sadly, mice got to them - I've tracked some issues down, & I thank you for printing her very last story (printed above), but I still have a while - I have some additional information on the series, as I knew the real Maureen - I will explain more later. Anyway, please let me know, thank you

    Here's the scenario. It's 2006, and you're all excited for this "Civil War" event Marvel's been teasing for years. You go to pick up the new issue of everyone's favourite web-slinger. After, the war has been teased in these pages often with Tony and Peter talking about the Registration Act. So you go to the store all excited and you're greeted with this:

    The title should "How To Kill Hype," by Ron Garney.

    "Okay, we've got the UK rights to the American Dennis the Menace comics."
    "Yeah, mate, but we can't call him that. There's already a Dennis the Menace here."
    "Then what would you suggest we call 'im?"
    "I dunno. Just Dennis."
    "OK."
