COMIC BOOK
COVERS EVER!


-- PART TWO of EIGHT --

(35) Strange Tales #77
by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers

Sick covers are back! And so is... TABOO! And THIS time nothing on earth can stop him! But old Taboo looks a bit different this time. Did he get a makeover for his big comeback? Because frankly, he looks like a walking pile of shit. What must he SMELL like? Ugh.

And as if THAT wasn't bad enough.... look! He's actually leaving a gross and disgusting brown smear on the ground wherever he walks. None of these covers have been altered in any way, reader, and so there is no other explanation: TABOO is well-named, and very, very ...

(34) The Flash #133
by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson

Being turned into a puppet isn't that unusual in the world of comic books. And if you're the Flash, it's apparently not even a novelty!

Because as Abra Kadabra, evil magician from the future, magically transforms Flash's flesh and blood into wood and sawdust, Flash thinks to himself: "I've got the strangest feeling I'm being turned into a puppet!"

Ummm... what the hell does it "feel like" to be turned into a puppet? Flash seems to know, yet it doesn't bother him a bit. He just muses that it's "strange." And that is more than a little bit ...

(33) Blackhawk #199
by Dick Dillin and Sheldon Moldoff

You hear a tiny voice coming from somewhere. You grab a magnifying glass, and pinpoint the source of the noise. It's three of your teammates! And they're screaming: "We've been reduced in size and are under attack by weird mummified insects!" Oh, is THAT all? Don't bother me again unless it's something REALLY important!

Oh and by the way, just a few questions: Why are the insects tiny? Who mummified them? Who brought them back to life? Why are they so hostile to the shrunken Blackhawks? And finally, who thought up this demented scenario? There is only one word for it ...

(32) Daredevil #209
by David Mazzuchelli

Anything that depicts young children in a perverse manner is automatically sick. So what about almost two dozen young zombie girls in need of Daredevil's "help"? Well, if it were me, I'd probably yell "KEEP AWAY!" until they left me alone. And it seems old Hornhead is doing just that!

But who are the girls, and what do they want from DD? And why does Daredevil, the supposed "Man Without Fear," seem to be so afraid of them? Maybe it's because his radar sense is telling him that the whole thing is twisted, inappropriate, and ...

(31) Wonder Woman #159
by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito

It's only cover 31 of 40, but I don't know even where to begin with this one! First of all, "THE TRUTH" is just the origin of the Golden Age WW. She was a clay sculpture brought to life. Not that big a deal, as comic book origins go. I mean, the Spectre had to DIE, for God's sake!

So why is this story being presented as some sort of depraved, unspeakable confession? What are the "innermost secrets" it will reveal? Why is "punishment" explicitly mentioned? And why is the hand silencing WW so obviously a male's hand?

Just exactly what are they trying to imply here?!?! Huh??? I'll tell you what -- something that is just totally, totally ...
