Still a bit short of time, but here’s some art for your eyes to feast upon … This time it’s no one other than Moebius and I am not even going to bother and try to write him up. You don’t know who it is, click on the wiki link. The one thing I will say, though, is that it’s a pity that we cannot expect to be surprised by guys like him or Kirby anymore … Also, that has to be the best-looking Iron Man ever.
The problem with international editions until the 70’s or 80’s (depending on which country you grew up in) is that sometimes the art is modified and other times it’s totally butchered, not to mention the translations (but that’s a problem to this day). We will come back to all of these topics at some point in the future this being Disco Friday and all, but I will leave you with a question … How do you make a regular-sized 20+ page comic from a bunch of strips?
Here’s a clue:
A while ago, I posted a cover of a Spanish reprint of Mandrake in which he met the Demon Dancer. Thanks to the Mandrake Wiki, and keeping with the Disco Friday subject, I thought I would post a few different covers of other international editions, for comparison:
I think that the French one wins by a landslide, n’est pas?
Because nothing says it’s Friday more than Clark Kent shaking his moneymaker (and I couldn’t find it online, which is kind of weird, I could swear I saw it in the past), I give you SuperDiscoMan:
And if you want to learn how to move like that (and who wouldn’t?), here are all the separate images for you to practice at home:
