Re: General Comics Trivia

6 is correct. 8: right title but the issue number is a little off.  23: skippcomet is correct for the artist and Sidney is correct for the feature. Direct Currents was a sub-section of the Daily Planet.

3. Harvey?

 

6/29/2021 6:38 am  #756


Re: General Comics Trivia

3 is incorrect.

A reminder on a previous question for 23. Sidney guessed Master Comics #23. I replied right title but the issue number was a little off. Sidney then tried #24 and I said he was getting colder. So that should narrow down the right answer quite a bit.

Re: General Comics Trivia

9 and 20 are incorrect. 10 is closer to what I'm looking for, though I'm thinking of someone less likely to kill innocents due to their condition. The rest are correct. The full name of the park is Parc Astérix. I was there in 2002 and it was a highlight of my Europe trip.

Ironically around the time that the JFK comic came out, he was killed, resulting in a mock conspiracy theory that Superman had second thoughts.

Archie and Beetle Bailey. I suspect that the Archie story came first because he has his Archies band, so the story's a more natural fit there.

9. In the Brave and the Bold story where Earth-1 Batman teamed with Earth-2 Robin, which other superhero played a prominent role?
Earth-2 Batwoman (so there were parallels because Earth-1 Batman lost Batwoman and Earth-2 Batwoman lost Batman)

Krypto

Sorry, 4 should be How did David Letterman defeat Fabian Stankowicz?

8 is incorrect, as is 15 though I understand that Dickens did write the first draft of the Teen Titans story A Swinging Christmas Carol. The rest are correct.

I think he hit him over the head with a stage prop (maybe his microphone?), knocking him out.

Re: General Comics Trivia

4 is mostly correct, but it wasn't a microphone.
