    There's a comic from a children's nature magazine (National Geographic or Discovery or other) with adorable animal characters. One of the characters is a purple bat named Echo. What is the comic and/or magazine called? Reply

    Hi everyone! About six years ago, I read a comic my friend had. It was about the fuzzy creatures that fought zombies. I remember that they were called something like Crapones or Clo- bis. There was an elite group of zombie hunters, and one of them was blind. There were two sisters who fought zombies together and I think their last name was Yelborne or something like that. The older ones name was Elease and she wore a cloak and had a scythe. It would be great if someone can help me remember this comic. It's been bugging me for a while. Thanks!! Reply

    There was a female Superman (or maybe Justice League) villain, who I believe was once listed on either the Totally Radical or We're Still Relevant, Dammit! pages. I'm having a hard time digging her up; I think she was a creation of the 2000's since she was suspected of being modeled after Lisbeth Salander in appearance/personality. Reply

    Okay, slightly odd request this one. Does anyone in the UK remember the free supplement about Sega and Nintendo console games that came with a tabloid paper (possibly The Sun) in the 90s? Regular reviewer characters included the Old Git (a grumpy old man) and Auntie Mabel (a sweet old lady) - I may have got her first name wrong. There was also the Cheat who published a column of cheat codes and the No-Hoper, a useless player. The No-Hoper's column was directly below the Cheat's and in one issue, he wrote an extra long column which needed more space, so they gave him both slots and put the Cheat on the back page for that issue. From then on, the storyline featured an ongoing feud between the two. There was also a campaign insisting game cartridges were too highly priced and could realistically be sold cheaper, called (if memory serves) GYPD or Get Your Prices Down.

    Really, I just want to know what the title was. I cannot remember and Google doesn't seem to know either. Reply

    I'm looking for a comic I read in the late-nineties when I was a kid. I remember things about it, but not the title or publisher unfortunately. I highly doubt it was Marvel, DC or Image, but you never know.

    This was a black and white comic- maybe B5 size-, most likely British, and about goblins. I remember it started with a spiel about why goblins were erased from history (e.g. there was an image of them fighting at the Battle of Hastings, the goblin said "cor blimey, mate, look at that thing coming towards your eye").

    The main character was a human boy and I'm pretty sure that at one point he passed out and was given the kiss of life by a goblin lady, which caused him to start turning into a goblin because they have spider-like things on their tongues which transfer via kissing and infect you with, um, goblin.

    I'm fairly certain I didn't just make this up, but when I tried googling it, no matter how specific I was all I got was a webcomic and the Green Goblin.

    I asked my cousin if he remembered this comic and he said "the art was sick! Loads of snot, and the planet was shaped like a pear!" Reply

    ...and she has to work for some people (cyborgs?) who's language she doesn't understand to earn them back. (I only read the 2nd volume so I don't know the entire plot.) She carries around a doll that talks to her, and I think the doll contains her brain or her heart or something, and I think is missing an eye but I could be wrong. And she's not supposed to talk to the doll but it's the only thing she can communicate with (I think.) During the errand/mission she's given, she comes across a place where there's preserved organs (as in being kept functional,) and the doll warns her not to destroy any because some might belong to her. The plot and art style are pretty dark from what I can remember. Reply

      Found it. It's called Borderline. Also it's not a manga lol

    I remember seeing an anthology comic a couple of years ago. It was about a girl with powers. If i remember correctly the ocean turns evil and starts overtaking the land. The main character was a young girl who could levitate. Also at the end the ocean looked like it was going to swallow her. Now I could be wrong about the ocean being evil. It could be a monster that controls water. There was a huge Art-Style Dissonance. I first saw this comic in between 2006-2010. Reply

      I could be completely wrong, since I don't know if it had an anthology, but is it Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea?

      No not at all. It was not from japan. Also there was an older woman with a jetpack, and the girl was in the 8-10 range, not the infant to 6 range.

    As far as I know, the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was adapted to comic books in S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014) and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Then, surfing the internet to read things about the TV series, I found this page. Is that comic book image from either of the comics, from some other one, or just promotional material? Reply

      I'm pretty sure it's just promotional material for Season 3 - when I do a reverse image search everything that comes up is related to news articles about Season 4 being filmed/the show being renewed. Plus, everything depicted in it relates to season 3 somehow.

    This has been bugging me all day. I remember a scene from a show (may also have been a film), where a character is held by some crazy female assassin (who thinks she's psychic) after she kills a guy at a gas station. She's super dirty, covered in blood, matted hair, etc. The killer stocks up on snacks from the gas station, there's something about a muffin. They start having car trouble and run into a trucker on a dirt road. He offers to fix the car but ends up being evil, and the woman kills him too. Reply

    Our "Bruce Wayne Held Hostage" page has this in the list.

    "A variation occurred in a Silver Age Superman story. During an attempted heist at a museum, some goons take a bystander hostage and force Superman to help them. Only the "Superman" they have is a lookalike in a Superman costume on his way to his son's school, and the "hostage" is Clark Kent, who they grabbed before he could change clothes. The real Superman ends up having to use his powers to covertly make his kidnappers believe the fake one is the real deal until he can get him safely away. "

    Anyone know which story/issue that was? it sounds like a good read, but google has failed me. Reply

      Bump!

      I think it's "The Make-Believe Superman", which appeared in Superman issue 127. There's a synopsis of it here.

    I can vaguely remember a comic serial which must have been British involving a detective, who was drawn very simply, with a black trenchcoat, trilby and bug eyes - he may have been a frog. He was involved in an adventure in which he fought a Fu Manchu type villain. He burned through a rope using a watch glass. The villain had eggs with lions inside them as a weapon. "Your eggs have little lions on them - our eggs have little lions inside them!" The title may have included the words "private eye" Reply

    I'm trying to find a W.I.T.C.H comic that I read in a magazine. It probably wasn't in a regular graphic novel because the story was too short. In the comic, Taranee is being bullied by Uriah and his friends, until Irma comes along and uses her powers to spray them with water from a water fountain. Martin and Nigel may have been involved, but I'm not sure. Does anyone who knows W.I.T.C.H know what this could be? I've looked at the comics on the W.I.T.C.H wiki site and haven't found anything.

      Was it in the same artstyle as the normal comics?

    Might have been a western comic, might have been a manhua, either way I don't remember much of it. It definetly wasn't japanese, might have been chinese or korean; I read a print version, the comic itself was pretty dark but had a beautiful art style, not colored; I remember a black-haired girl waking up in some kind of a train with a bunch of monsters (that hate her), who later turn into puppets in an enchanted forest? I couldn't make out most of the plot, but there was also a giant dreamkeeper lady who cried dreams, a guy who wore a cauldron for a hat, also pretty sure some manner of cannibalism was involved. Comic itself went out around 2009, couldn't find anything about it then, same as now. All help is appreciated! Reply

    I only read one issue, but it featured the crew of a crashed ship on a distant planet. They were being hunted by an alien race with projectile weapons built into their biology, even calling them bio-weapons. The main human characters all wore armor, and of different colors. Reply

    There was a series of graphic novels in my elementary school library, I would have read them between 2004 and 2008. The plot was that there was an author similar to L. Frank Baum who wrote books similar to the Oz books, and a girl discovered the world he wrote about was actually real when she found herself there.

    The main character was the girl whose name I can't recall, she was black and I think wore overalls and maybe had pigtails? There was a boy who was made of wax who I think was named Wicks or something like that, and I feel like he betrayed the girl somehow. I also seem to remember the main characters riding in a hot air balloon

    Sorry I don't recall more, anyone know of a series like this?.

    The princess falls in love with a guy who is cursed to have a swan wing for an arm. The princess father is a pretty bishonen guy. I think is an oneshot, or at the very least, a pretty short series. Reply

    I am looking for a specific comic by some artist I can't remember. But I remember a couple of things about it.

    First, I remember that the cower of the pocket I used to have but can no longer find looked like it could fit on the Lethal Chef page with a character cooking something that looked not to pleasant. Second, I remember that one of the stories in the pocket as a parody of the Hunchback of Notredame featuring all kinds of chaotic madness. One scene I remember involved Quasi trying to ring one of the church bells only for it to swing above and around and hitting him in the head (and resulting in his deafness). I also remembered that in the end of the story, Quasi threw practically everything he could find at the crowd below, including Esmeralda and Frollo, and eventually himself. Apparently he bounced on the ground and was sent flying somewhere and became a superstar after that, or something like that. And thirdly, I remember a short story in the same pocket which basically boiled down to a man yawning, his wife turns on a table fan, a fly get's blown away by said fan right into the mans mouth, he spits it out right into the fan, the fly platters on the fan and splatters fly all over the mans face.

    well that is what I can remember of it. Reply

    Hi! I'm looking for a manga series that I read a few years ago but can't remember the name of. It's about a young girl who doesn't have any friends, you know, a bit of an anti-social person. But, through circumstances, she has to socialize with people in order to find monsters/demons. One day, she makes a couple of friends after she helps them get something that fell over a bridge and she takes off her shoes to get it for them. Afterwards, they catch up to her and ask her about her favorite celebrity in a magazine. And near the end of the first or second book, she has to confront a monster of some kind in a school gym. Can someone help me with this, please? Reply

      This vaguely reminds me of {{7 Billion Needles}}. It's been a while since I read it, but the antisocial girl, the bridge, and monster-in-the-gym battle are elements of the story.

      Yes! That's the one! Thank you!

    So, I remember reading a Comicvine article about this comic. However, I can't find the article or remember the title. It was a social satire comic. The premise was that people would announce they would kill themselves at a certain date and soak in the fame and publicity until then. It may or may not have been part of a fictional reality show.

    I found that picture from a super girl comic where she says 'that's strange' and the other woman asks what's strange. Then Kara says 'My X-ray vision is picking up some weird plastics in your–" I really love the art style and it's such a fun sense of humor that I was wondering what artist it was from/ what issue number it was. If anyone knows, I'd really appreciate it. Reply

    All I remember is a chapter involving glasses that allows wearers to see red strings of fate and special nail polish that allows the wearer to cut them and retie them to change relationships. One of the male characters might have had a name similar to Ryu... Reply

      Thanks but not Megane-chan no Akai Ito, because I looked into that one and it didn't involve nail polish. Also, I remember it being a longer work (not one-shot).

    I'm a sucker for minor Batman villains and I noticed one in a flashback panel when Batman fights Bane in Part 11 of Knightfall that I wish to identify.

    The villain wears either black or dark blue and wears a mask revealing only his eyes with spikes around the face. A long, whip-like protrusion on the top of the head appears to be made of something akin to barbed wire and is slashing one of the prongs of Batman's cowl in the panel. He also wears spiked gloves.

    The flashback panel is most likely based on a previous comic and is taking place in a graveyard. Reply

    Does anyone know the origin of this panel: [1]. Which didn't embed, but the link seems to work. It's a comic panel of a woman reading in bed, with the devil bursting in the window shrieking " HOOOOYARRRRRGH!! It's me, Satan!" "So?" Reply

      I've seen a blog post about this, which I can't find at the moment. If I remember correctly, it's from an old and rather obscure comic, and the plot is that the Devil goes up to see how the human race is getting on, and ends up fleeing home with his tail between his legs because the modern world is so much scarier than anything he's ever managed.

      Just a guess, but could this be from Chick Tracts?

      Definitely not a Chick Tract, I'd have remembered that. It was something really obscure that I'd never heard of before.
