Fredric wertham wrote the book "seduction of the innocent" (and used other means) to/which convinced many people at the time (late 1940s onward to at least mid 1950s) that comic books were damaging to children. The terrible accusations, lies and mistakes he told of echoed a negative effect on comics and started to calm down after the 1960s.

BMB: They're implants...

Topcow, ever aware of new marketing oppurtunities, has licensed Witchblade as an animè. It has very little to do with the original American series, other than the main character also having big ol jugs... It is however, proving to be much more popular than the live action series, and Gonzo, the japanese company working on it in tandem with Topcow, are thinking of optioning The Darkness as well...

practicecactus - The british Transformers comic was published by the UK office of Marvel, the cover simply has Marvel, not Marvel UK. I recall they started using Marvel UK as a brand name in the '90's, when there was a big publicity push for Marvel titles done by people from Marvel UK that were being sold as part of the general Marvel releases, titles such as Death's Head II, Motormouth, etc...

The first Death's Head story (issue 113, published 1987 May 16) has him hunting for Galvatron, after the events seen at the end of Transformers : The Movie (1986).

BMB - The Ranson story actually revolved around people, the Transformers seemed more cautious about showing themselves and were only seen in a few panels, but it had the Ranson art we love. Unfortunately I only have a couple of issues (113 to 120) the rest were tossed out (grrrrr...).

Frederic Wortham, inventor of Wonder Woman, also invented the polygraph. He advocated a new society to be created after WWII with women as the superior gender. He lived happily with his wife and their mutual girlfriend and various children.

As anyone who has seen early WW comics knows... he also advocated bondage and discipline as healthy parts of the sexual drive.

two bratty kid comic characters, both called DENNIS THE MENACE appeared in print for the first time in exactly the same week of 1951 - one in the US and one in the UK.

The two guys (cant remember their names right now) who created the extremely famous superman actually had already created a different character that had the same name:superman. The abilities were along the lines of high brain power and pyschic(?) abilities. Listen to this strange fact...he looked like lex luthor!

The jokers knowledge seems so much so that while others in crossovers can have their memory returned to the status quo after the crossover he can remember what happened such as when in a crossover with spiderman he recalled a change of costume (ben reily (spiderman) style). He sometimes even shows that he is aware of being on the pages of a batman comicbook.
