Man-Bat and Spider-Man in: "Carrion, My Wayward Son!"




Spider-Man: Homecoming is almost upon us, and I am very encouraged by the reviews I have seen thus far.  Many ar calling it the best Spidey flick yet, at least on par with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2, which is high praise.  Tom Holland is being singled out as a highlight and I am looking forward to seeing him flesh out his take on Peter Parker.

Carry on my wayward pun.

"Carrion, my wayward son"? There will be pizza when they're done!

Fascinating cover, Ross! It certainly sparks interest in what story would be inside!

Cary Comic said...

So, Rebecca Langstrom didn't stay an only child?

Way to "Carrion," Kirk and Francine!*

*I couldn't let Bob and Blaine have all the "pun." ;-D

*Re-reads the story's title a few times*

Gotta keep telling myself: He puns. Keep that in mind; don't you cry no more...

@JR: If this were Man-Bat vs. the Sub-mariner, the title would probably have been..."Don't You Cry, Namor."

Stephan Pastis called. He wants his shtick back.

I know you have used a lot of Jack Kirby artwork, but have you featured Kirby himself on a cover? I see you have featured Stan Lee a couple of times. It would be great to see Jack Kirby alongside some of his greatest creations on his 100th birthday.

If you are going to do some Jack Kirby tribute covers I would love to see: The Hulk and The Demon, Captain America and Mister Miracle, Thor and Kamandi, Silver Surfer and Orion, and The Fantastic Four and The Challengers of the Unknown.

Lieber Kurtzberg said...

I think Fantastic Four vs The New Gods would be cool. You can have Mr Fantastic vs Mister Miracle, Invisible Woman vs Big Barda, The Thing vs Orion, and Human Torch vs Lightray. Plus you can throw in Dr Doom and Darkseid.

Ross said...

FF/Challengers and Thor/Kamandi are already on the blog

PS: Here's hoping that the next time Man-Bat and Spider-Man meet, it's during the latter's "six-armed" period. I'd love to see that. (I almost said that I'd pay to see it, but if I had money I already would be.)

Bob Greenwade said...

Oh, and I do like Lieber's suggestion, though probably the ideal Kirby tribute cover would be the early Avengers and the New Gods.

The Answer Man said...

The issue that falls on Jack Kirby's birthday would be issue number 1962. That was the same year that some famous Jack Kirby creations debuted: The Hulk, Dr Doom, Ant Man, and Thor.

Cary Comic said...

Why not consolidate all of LK's suggestions? More specifically; have all those characters gathered around a birthday cake as Jack Kirby stands pondering how to blow it out!

Of course, that might entail incorporating the big cake from JLA v.1/#100.

Her younger brother Aaron appeared with the rest of the family in at least one issue of Nightwing's first [ongoing] series. Not sure that this would be him, though...

Correction, it was in Robin (Tim)'s series.
