“I now pronounce you demon and wife…”
You may not necessarily want to think in these terms, but comic books are soap operas. Sure, there’s the adventure of the month, but the key to so much of comics drama comes from the heroes and villains’ interpersonal relationships.
Hell, Siegel and Shuster understood that right off the bat with the Superman-Lois Lane-Clark Kent “triangle.”
Anyway, Back Issue #123 — out Oct. 21 — gets into all that will-they-or-won’t-they with the Superhero Romance Issue.
Check out the table of contents:
Now, of course, not all superhero relationships are serious affairs. Sometimes they’re off-the-wall bonkers — and I’m not even talking about Donna Troy marrying creepy Terry Long.
I’m talking about that time Jimmy Olsen married Lois. Or the time Jimmy married a gorilla. Or the time Lois married the Devil.
Well, BI #123 has a groovy gallery of WEIRD WEDDING TALES — which we present to you in this EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT.
You may now kiss the monster.
Back Issue #123 is due out Oct. 21. It will be available in comics shops and at magazine sellers. You can also order it directly through publisher TwoMorrows. (Click here.)
