Nod to superheroes in Funky Winkerbean and Mother Goose & Grimm comic strips
#1
Not exactly related to movies, but certainly about super-heroes who may appear in movies!

Sunday 10/26 had a wonderful send-up of a classic Flash cover - click here (and turn your head to the side.) The title character of the strip is getting ready for his 30th high school reunion. (And in the fine print, there is even a nod to artists Infantino and Anderson!)

Yet another, from the Sat. 1/30 Mother Goose & Grimm strip:

OK, that's not Hawkman... it's not Angel... who is that? :laugh: He does sort of have Hawkman's colors....

Sunday 5/30's Funky Winkerbean had an homage to a classic Lois Lane cover - click here (and then turn your head sideways.)

If you don't follow the strip, the little inset shows the modern-day parallel - Les has been dating a fellow teacher at his school, but she sees him having lunch with a younger teacher, who was one of his students years ago.
