The History Of Comics With Q-boy #55 Fuck That! We Fin’ To Ride!
With this one I thought “what if a superhero team acted like a straight up gang?”. For good measure I threw in a “Menace II Society” reference. Also in this one I introduce “The Spider” which is my version of “Cobra” from “G.I. Joe” only they’re not really that evil at all. You’ll be seeing more of these guys over time. The panels of this comic are based on the work of Ramona Fradon.
- Panel 1 is based on the cover to “Super Friends” #39 which you can see here http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/9/95/Super_Friends_Vol_1_39.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100625190747
- Panel 2 is based on a panel from “Adventure Comics” #266 which you can see here https://ultraboy8888.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/adv_266__aquaman__aquagirl.png
- Panel 3 is based on the cover to “Super Friends” #27 which you can see here http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/1/1e/Super_Friends_Vol_1_27.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100625190225
- Panel 4 takes elements from several “Super Friends” covers including 21, 26, & 30 which you can see here http://namtab.com/aquablog/superfriends21.gif , here http://d1466nnw0ex81e.cloudfront.net/n_iv/600/584649.jpg , & here http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/7/70/Super_Friends_Vol_1_30.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100625190242
That’s it for this one. Next time a man called “The Illusionist” is called in to solve a big problem. Check out new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations this Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
