Today begins the start of what I hope to continue for a long time. There’s tons of funny comic strips and pieces of art that poke fun of the superhero genre – and what kind of fan would I be if I wasn’t willing to make fun of comics as well? I understand how ridiculous the genre can be. So, as a way of supporting the superhero spoofs, here’s the first installment of Saturday Morning Funnies!

This kind of makes you sympathize with the Rancor trainer huh? I always assumed he had some connection with the beast, and loved it as well, but it’s interesting (and funny) to look at their relationship in this degree. To find out more about the history and biology of the Rancors, visit their Wikipedia page.
Does this bring back some memories or what?!?!
What’s better than three of the most gorgeous women in comics coming together under one outstanding artist’s pencil? Adding some dragons, that’s what!
Daxiong has an amazing display of oriental artwork portraying women surrounded by various things of their culture. What I think he’s most known for, however, is his inclusion of dragons. Words cannot describe just how amazing his work is.
Of course, this is not unfamiliar territory for Wondy, being the daughter of a mythological being and all, but even Zatanna and Supergirl have some experience with the strange and weird don’t they? This is not-an-out-of-place, or out-of-character superheroine motif, but rather an acknowledgment of a literary genre that is as much mythological as it is science fiction.
Over at Daxiong’s deviant art page you can find more of this very thing. Art that combines cultures into one unifying project which creates something powerful and moving is always welcome in my book! Go on over and discover more of his work that sets the bar very high for upcoming artists.
