LIID 106: Reboots of Future Past! by johntrumbull LIID 106: Reboots of Future Past! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #106 for 9/13/12: Comic Book Cover Homages! I chose the suggestion of X-Men #141 as a parody of DC's new 52. You can see the original cover by John Byrne & Terry Austin here: [link]

I should also note that the heads in the corner box are not by me, but were done by the great Neal Adams for DC Comics in the 1970s.

And check out all the other great cover homages at the Line It Is Drawn here: [link]

OH MAN! this is one of the funniest spoofs i've ever seen!!!!! :D
too TOO perfect!!!!

i saw someone had posted this on FB and at first i REALLY thought this was part of DC's upcoming 'Convergence' series

but after i saw the caption 'Liefelded' i figured out this was something far too humorous for them to poke fun at themselves! :D

it's a great thing you posted your URL on the image to make it easier to find the original post.

my favorites have got to be 'rooftop sex' and 'zeus daddy'!

but all of them are SO true!

for Superman i'd have said 'collar'. oh MAN i'll never get used to that DANG collar!!!! D:<

Nope, I did this back when the New 52 was still new, before Convergence was even a gleam in anyone's eye. Thanks for the kind words!

Ha! Great work. Only thing is that Flash's mother has been dead for a bit now. Main complaint for what the New 52 did was destroying the family aspect of the Flash.

The dead mother thing was introduced maybe a year before the New 52. Close enough for my reckoning.

Oh God, Why can't I find this before? It, it's...unbelievable! Beautiful!

Yes, that's why we can't love all about NEW52. We still don't know about Donna Troy.
We'll never going to see Obsidian, Jade, Atom Smasher, Jakeem Thunder, Damage, Jackson Hyde, Lorena Marquez, Atlee in 10years...

You can only fit so much on a label, and "Zeus Daddy" is a nice punchy phrase. :)

I stumbled upon this and was compelled to comment.  So amazingly creative and well thought out.  The nod to the 70's DC/80's Marvel head "roll call" was awesome.  I assume, if I were reading The New 52, I might know the answer to this question:  "Why did you pick Kid Flash and Wonder Girl?"  Naturally, I spent sometime browsing your other pieces.  You're very talented, clever, and witty.  If you will humor two requests.  I would love to see what you would do with Lois Lane 106.  Also, as a longtime Mike Grell Legion fan, I hope to see the 30th Century represented in your work.

Thanks for the kind words!  I used Kid Flash & Wonder Girl mainly because they've not been featured yet in the New 52 (or at least they weren't when I did this piece last year), and because I have a nostalgic affection for them from reading the New Teen Titans back in the day.

I don't have any real plans to do a Lois Lane 106 homage, but you never know!  And I did sneak in Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy into my John Munch piece for TLIID this week.

This is a cool and informative cover. But a little confusing. Financial problems have forced me to give up comics for the past few years. could you give me a brief explanation of these changes as well as the pictures that Kid Flash and Wonder Girl are blocking.

If you skim the previous comments, you'll find I've covered most everything you asked about.  And if you want to find out more about the New 52 in general, there's this site called "Google" that you might find useful.  :)

I'm sure there are people enjoying it for what it is.  I'm just not especially interested in 90% of what they're doing.

It has some ideas, but meh. Honestly, I enjoy what there doing with Ame-Comi & Injustice more to be honest. 

I really like the new character they introduced for The Justice League, Goldrush. Too bad she hasn't really done anything yet.

-What the f*ck does "liefelded" mean?
-Aquaman was always cool. The general rule of him is that if it's not "Super Friends", he's a total badass
-I agree, the changes to Batgirl & Robin were dumb. Tim was my favorite Robin, now he was never Robin
-Wonder Woman's new origin is just a lazily-done Hercules knockoff
-Wasn't Flash's dead mom the cause of the New 52, not a result?

Overall, it's well done and hilarious

Well, the art wasn't that important to the book to me. The story was strong enough to carry the book. Thought I do know how you feel. The main thing dragging me through the Flash book is the art, but the creative team will be changing soon, and I'll likely drop it after that.

Yeah, for me, if I can't get into the art in a big way, it can be tough to get into the story.

I hadn't heard that the Flash book was changing creative teams.  That's too bad.  I'll probably be dropping it, too.

Really awesome sir! I just wish DC knew what it was doing nowadays. I'm only reading Marvel, and only what Hickman and Jason Aaron are doing. I'm also reading Age of Ultron just to see how it ends. I can't stand Bendis' writing sometimes. Anyways DC keeps fudging up more and more continuity, and I just tired to trying to string things with invisible threads.

Well, I try to keep in mind that these things are always cyclical. Don't like a book now? Leave it alone for a while & give it another try later on. Go find some other comic book you enjoy instead. :)
