TEAM ME UP! A $1 SHOPPING SPREE FOR PARTNERS IN CRIME
Mike S: My Comic Shop is open again for a challenge of “If I Had A Buck…”
The magic comic spinner rack only has nine comics on it and you only have a dollar to spend. What to do? What to do? Take heart BABsters, because this time around you get double the heroes for your money. That’s right, two heroes for the price of one.
In the past we have looked at comics from many creators on a single title (Ms. Marvel), or a single creator on many titles (George Perez), but today we look at an array of titles from a comic genre… the TEAM UP. In the height of the Bronze Age it was common to find comics from Marvel and DC where two heroes partnered against a common foe; it was also fairly common that some long running titles added a headliner to boost sales. So back in the day, there were plenty of oddball matchups to choose from.
What did you think about these monthly lineups? What teams did you enjoy and what teams cracked your credibility? Who did the “Team Up” better, DC or Marvel? Were the stories classic or klutzy?
To get your wheels spinning and your tandem bikes rolling, today we have nine comics, eighteen heroes, and only one George Washington. Make your choices and share your thoughts. As always, have fun (and no teaming up and pooling your dollars)!
