Prince Street News: Alternate Alternate Realities

The new BACK ISSUE! (#111) is out, and it's a doozy! A deep dive into Marvel and DC Comics alternate reality tales, covering Imaginary Stories, WHAT IF?, DC's Elseworlds, and much more. For this installment of PSN, I came up with a bunch of gags that are mostly costume-based (as I defensively admit at the bottom of the second page), like What If Matt (Daredevil) Murdock's father were a pro wrestler instead of a boxer? Just Imagine if Abin Sur's ring chose Jughead instead of Hal Jordan? And how about those Teen Titans and their damn cell phones?!? Okay, that last one is kind of lame (and the perspective is wonky, to boot!), but whattyagonnado.

I'm also going to post all of the separate elements from this strip as separate posts on this blog if anyone wants to save or share some higher res versions.

NEXT UP! We return to Julie's Bar, that timeless tavern for comic book characters, this time during the summer of 1989... can you guess what the topic of conversation is?
