Costume Hijinks – Part 9


You know, between this time and last time, I’m pretty sure that Supergirl‘s fashion sense died with Argo City and the rest of the planet Krypton.

Yeesh, just because you're out to stop a dangerous fanatic, doesn't mean that you have to dress the part.

Today’s fashion disaster was ripped from the pages of Adventure Comics #415 (February 1972) by John Albano, Len Wein, Dave Wood, Carmine Infantino, Gray Morrow, Win Mortimer, Bob Oksner, and George Roussos.

Costume Hijinks – Part 8


Remember that brief period during the 1970s when Supergirl moonlighted as a go-go dancer?

And that abomination should probably have remained in your bag.

And that abomination should probably have remained stashed in your bag forever. Ugh.  >_<;

The Lunar Archivist’s Sketchbook – Part 10


An excellent piece by an excellent artist…what else can I say? Here’s a sketch of Supergirl by none other than Ethan Van Sciver. Enjoy. 🙂


Sex and Dating, Superhuman Style – Part 12


“Boy meets girl” follows the same script regardless of whether or not either of those words has the “super” prefix attached to it.


Don’t you hate it when someone ruins the moment?

Superman Says The Darndest Things – Part 6


Little known fact: one of Superman‘s lesser known powers is super-creepiness.

Trust me, you DON’T want to know where Superman’s other hand is in that second panel.

This semi-incestuous Kryptonian moment has been brought to you by Action Comics #289 (June 1962) by Leo Dorfman, Jerry Siegel, George Klein, Jim Mooney, Curt Swan, and Al Plastino.

Sex and Dating, Superhuman Style – Part 7


Looks like some Kryptonian marriages begin the way that many Earth marriages end.

Dude, you suck at writing your own vows.

Comic Book Sexual Innuendo – Part 24


Needless to say, making sexually suggestive remarks around Kryptonian girls is a pretty bad idea.

Looks like she can add "super emasculation" to her list of abilities.

Today’s hilarious putdown courtesy of The Brave and the Bold #4 (August 2007) by Mark Waid, George Pérez, and Bob Wiacek.
