WTF Wednesday: Jimmy Olsen, Symbol of Change

We're doing something a little different with WTF Wednesdays here at the Post, expanding beyond our beloved The War That Time Forgot to include any comic producing a panel that's so nutty, so over the top, that you can't help but say, "What the ... ?"

The sheer weirdness of The War That Time Forgot has set the bar and I wouldn't be surprised if it still showed up now and then but, believe it or not, the stories tend to get a bit repetitive after a while. Which is amazing when you realize you're talking about dinosaurs in the middle of World War II, giant monsters and robots, but there you go.

Besides, if we didn't open WTF Wednesdays to other titles, we'd never have half-naked, cross-dressing Jimmy Olsen!

alright that actually might be enough to make me put up with Quitley's squiggles...

Ha! I'm telling you, All Star Superman is one of the most fun comics out there right now. This panel is from the first page of that issue, so you can imagine what the rest of it is like.

Sometimes I really like Quitely's work, and sometimes I hate it with the burning intensity of a thousand suns; his work on Superman has been some of his best.

I have to agree, though that Bizaro two-parter tried my patience a bit. ASS is awesome.
