Batman and The Invisible Girl



Susan Storm is a character that got more an more interesting over the years as Stan Lee and other writers further explored her powers and personality. When she began to manipulate force fields as well as turn invisible, she became one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe. She is also unique for the fact that readers were able to follow her from single girl, to wife, to mother. Usually when a character has children in comics, they show up half grown out of the blue one day. It was nice to see Sue raise Franklin and now Valeria from infants to toddlers to kids.

Love the work you're doing on this site. Just wish some of these stories were actually available to read.
Any chance of Batman ever teaming up with Doctor Who?
You could do it as one of the classic 100 pagers and feature the current and past Doctors the way you have with The Cat and the Hulk.

Sincerely,

I don't think I have seen a Dr. Who episode since Tom Baker played him!

Ross:
I'll admit the series hit some rough patches between Doctors 6 (Colin "No Relation!" Baker) and 8 (Paul McGann).
But since the revival in 2005, it's been doing better, especially with #10 (David Tennant).
Jury's still out on the current regeneration (#11, Matt Smith) but most of the episodes have been pretty good and form an overall arc once you know what to look for.

Sincerely,

Very nice work. I think Dr. Who or Captain Jack from Torchwood would be good. Same with Buffy or Angel. Have you thought of trying Batman and individual members of the Legion of Super-Heroes?

I am not familiar with Torchwood. Individual LSHers are a good idea, although most do not have thier on logos so that makes it a bit tougher. I can guarantee that Dr. Who will make it onto this blog eventually, however.

If you want American art sources contemporary to the original B&B run, the four issues of Marvel Premiere (57-60) include a Simonson cover, but the heavy paper stock series that came later included word balloon covers long after that practice was generally avoided. You've shown a real genius for juxtaposing images and dialogue not originally intended to go together. I'd love to see what you could come up with.
