Top 10 Marvel Vs DC Battles on Soundcloud

I’ll throw the occasional track up onto Soundcloud. This is one of those.

Batman vs Daredevil. Spider-Man vs Nightwing. Superman vs Ego The Living Planet. These are the battles we sat around dreaming of in 1996. When Marvel and DC had their landmark, monumental crossover, there were still so many fantasy matchups left on the table. Here are 10 of them, presented by the What If Podcast.

We discuss the monumental, landmark crossover Marvel Vs. DC from 1995 and 1996. With entire universes colliding, is there room for a story? What’s Ben Reilly doing calling himself Peter Parker? Did your favorite hero win? Plus, Lobo, Superboy, and all that other 90s crap.

Fan Art Friday – Spider-Boy 2099

SpiderBoy2099

Here’s a quick study in coloring on the Amazing Amalgam, Spider-Boy 2099! What started out as a light pencil sketch didn’t scan too well, so some Sharpie and Pixlr gave it some color as I play with shading. I think I might do a couple more colors of the same sketch.

If you’re wondering what Spider-Boy 2099 is, check it out here. An alternate future of a meta-fiction crossover of Spider-Man and Superboy from 1997? Sign me up!

Boston Comic Con

So this weekend the entire cast of characters from the What If Podcast, my besties, Andrew The Giant, Franchise, and Beezy went down to Boston for the Boston Comic Con. After navigating public transportation around the city and standing in a long (but quick moving) line to get in on Saturday, we finally made it into valhalla: a floor of dollar bins and guys slinging silver age issues left and right, covered in cosplayers and artists willing to sign my meager Marvel books. Among the highlights:

Purchases – Took a good chunk of my list for Marvel Two-In-Ones, including my “big ticket” purchase, issue #1 for all of $18. Also procured a Silver Age Jim Steranko issue of Strange Tales for a scant $7 (and the cover isn’t absolute garbage either, so I’d call that a deal), as well as some Super Villain Team-Up issues and a Master Mold story arc on the cheap. Andrew The Giant had quite the experience procuring Uncanny X-Men #130, first appearance of The Dazzler, passing up a copy at $10 to “come back to it later”, only to find it had been sold, then procuring one when I bent down to look at a 50% off bin and finding it about three issue in for $8 (thus final price $4). Literally a bargain at twice the price, and the guy said he had sold “a few” of those already, so Dazzler’s hot business. Not for nothing, I picked up a copy of the luminous Dazzler #1, with a pretty crisp cover, for a mere dollary-doo.

Signatures – Overall I got signatures for most of what I wanted to get signed. Personal favorites include getting X-Men #53 signed by Mark Waid, the Spider-Man wedding issue signed by Paul Ryan (a lovely man who has a house up in my native Maine), the Spider-Hulk issue of Web of Spider-Man by Alex Saviuk, a triple signature on my What If AvX #1 by Jorge Molina, Norman Lee, and Jimmy Palmiotti, who was an absolute delight to talk to (along with his wife Amanda Connor) and Mark Texiera, who signed an awesome cover of Wolverine by also doodling a Wolverine next to his signature (and posing for a picture), quite the bargain for a dollar.

Overall, I’d say the Boston Comic Con, even without going to the panels, was an amazing time and a great way to spend a weekend.
