Man, I loved Ambush Bug. He doesn't get enough exposure.

He had a great 4th wall breaking cameo in 52, but I say - IT ISN'T ENOUGH.


Why don't people make covers like this nowadays?

I'll tell you why: I think alot of present-day comic book creators take this stuff a little too seriously. While I enjoy alot of the more serious, gritty stuff being done, there's always more room for whimsey and a little fun. A few writers "get it", though. In fact, just this week in the new issue of Justice Society of America, writer Geoff Johns had the scramble-brained Starman suddenly turn to the reader and asked if we had a map to the multiverse.


I think the SHE HULK #1 was an homage to the classic National Lampoon cover "If You Don't Buy This Magazine, We'll Kill This Dog"
