John Byrne’s studio as shown in photos taken by John. Part 2 of 2. January 2008.

It’s always a little bit amusing/nerve racking when I DO give tours to people who have not seen the house. The upstairs is relatively “grown up”, with mostly movie memorabilia and STAR TREK stuff to be “odd” — and that almost entirely confined to the TV room. But when I lead people down the stairs to the Studio, I usually say “Okay, brace yourselves, now. You are about to step right into the middle of my brain.”

World’s Finest Comics vol.1 #10 - Cover date Summer 1943
Superman confronts the purple-clad, goggle-eyed Insect Master, who reasonably enough is able to command insects to commit his acts of evil. Saving Metropolis from a deadly swarm, the Man of Steel is nearly killed – or lengthily inconvenienced, anyway – by a quicksand trap at the Insect Master’s infested swampland hideout, the site of his own apparent death …

RandoMonday: JLA: Earth 2

longboxreview:

Here’s a comic chosen at random from my collection.

JLA: Earth 2 (2000) by Grant Morrison (writer), Frank Quitely (artist & cover), Kenny Lopez (letterer), Laura DePuy & Wildstorm FX (colors), Tony Bedard (assoc editor), and Dan Raspler (group editor)

I really enjoyed this clash between the JLA and the Crime Syndicate of Amerika, mostly because of the futility that both groups encounter in…

"The Sneer Strikes!" Superman Daily Newspaper Strip - June 28, 1943 to August 21, 1943
More than a few fictional characters toured the Japanese-American internment camps which dotted the west coast after 1942, the goal of their tours largely being to console the uneasy consciences of Americans troubled by the objectionable actions of their government towards literally tens of thousands of their fellow citizens. Clark and Lois visit one camp and - following a superficial tour - find it good, effectively stamping the entire controversial endeavor with Superman’s approval. A low point in Superman’s history. 
Making their judgment call from the tourist perspective, Clark and Lois find the interned citizens of Japanese descent to be “decent, hard-working, honest Americans” … for the most part. Fifth column activities - unsurprisingly, given the circumstances - nonetheless pop up in the camp, necessitating Superman’s intervention.
This time, last year, in the newspaper dailies, Superman was clashing with the insidious Japanese agent The Leer, who destroyed himself rather than risk capture. Now, the Leer is back — or so it seems, as it’s actually the original agent’s lookalike brother, his face also contorted in a permanent rictus.
