One Punch…and the rest of Comic Continuity

Two comic book site links for the price of one (or actually none since you aren’t really paying for this are you?)!  Comic continuity can drive you mad as you try to remember which events took place in which issues.  But hold the phone – there’s a cool little site to help you out.  Can’t quite remember which issue of Justice League Batman knocked out Guy Gardner with just one punch?  No more worries.  Nice reference tools for comic junkies.

And these cool panels, click ‘em to see the full size (my favorite part is Black Canary’s reaction), are thanks to Dave’s Long Box, a nice little comic blog where you can waste many an hour, including his tribute to Guy Gardner.

    Justice League #5.  I so knew that, since it’s the beginning of the Grey Man arc.

    Wow, that writing is actually good.  Kind of surprising for mainstream comics during that time period…

    Well, not really.  Kieth Giffen & J.M. DeMattis had some good company at that time.  Alan Moore had already done Watchmen and his fabled Swamp Thing run, and was working on From Hell at this time.  Neil Gaiman was already well into Sandman, and Grant Morrison was playing with the entire concept of comics in Animal Man.  Sure those were Vertigo or independent titles, but that same time frame gave us Batman: The Killing Joke (Alan Moore)and Arkham Asylum.  DC was very much cultivating some serious writing talent, while Marvel was kind of floundering.
