Misogi is an electronica artist from Dubai, who makes music that occupies the odd space between hip hop and ambient. One can imagine the songs from Pink2 as background music in a club that serves oxygen or sells water for $10 a glass as easily as the songs could serve as beds for a loopy verse by Chance the Rapper. In fact, you don’t have to imagine it. Just listen to “Church,” which features Josh Pan. It’s not for everyone, but if you like it (as I do), I bet you’ll really, really like it (as I do).
Parasite is a man who can siphon the skills and abilities of those near him. In this scene, from his debut in Action Comics #340, he bops Superman on the head. Believe it or not, he was created by Curt Swan and future Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter.
The book went on sale on this day in 1966.
#19: What If Spider-Man had Never Become a Crime Fighter?
#20: What If the Avengers Fought the Kree Without Rick Jones?
#21: What If the Invisible Girl Married Sub-Mariner?
Obviously, none of these came true. Well, technically the Avengers fought Kree other times besides the Kree/Skrull War, but I’m not counting that. These are “true” What Ifs–alternate versions of past events.
These aren’t great comics, but they’re decent. The best is the Daredevil costume, above.
Never heard of Lucy Kaplansky? Well, I hope this helps her get some new, well-deserved fans.
Thunder Road (Springsteen)* This is her masterpiece cover.
