Justice Friends #1

Finally! Justice Friends! I don't remember that middle part, but whatever... Justice Friends!

In the panel at the end where Superman glares at the Flash, I notice he's a little bit left of center. Just sayin'.

Well yeah, I positioned Supes just a tad to the left as a veiled acknowledgement of what we fans of superhero comics have known since Day One: Superman is a stone-cold communist, right down to the core. He's the champion of the people, meaning LABOR, baby, and the enemy of the bourgeoisie.

In fact, they self-consciously added "and the American Way!" to the previously standard "Truth and Justice!" in the '50s during the height of the red scare to throw the FBI off the scent. It didn't do much good, though; from what I hear, Supes still has an 11,000 page FBI file, which is almost as big as the file kept on Batman and Robin (though they started that one for an entirely different reason).

I emailed you about Justice Friends yesterday, Var. Still wanna help me write it?

Damn skippy!

(I think that works. Damn right is also good, but not as funny.)

Got the email after posting. I didn't realize the story was seven pages... The pages kind of run together in this format. I'll check for some of our more ludicrous ideas and see what we came up with.

Yeah, it's not immediately obvious that the story is seven pages when viewed online, but that's how I'm scripting and putting them together. It's a little longer than I originally envisioned it lo so many years ago, but that way we can have more than one thing happening in each issue, go back and forth between different sets of characters doing different things.
