Today, Comic Creator References Go Overboard (Batman #50, X-Men Gold #31, Immortal Hulk #2)

Posted by July 4, 2018 Comment

When Bleeding Cool first teased the contents of Batman #50, we mentioned the preponderance of references to comic book creator names — always a feature of Gotham, but in this issue weaponised for nostalgia and tipping the hat, just as the comic tears off into a new future.

But it seems like it’s catching.

These are the references that Batman #50 gives you, homaging Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson, Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Gardner Fox, Dennis O’Neil, and Bob Kane.

But today#s Immortal Hulk #2 gives us a diner named after Sal Buscema…

And X-Men Gold #31 clumsily combines Chris Claremont and John Byrne into… well…

…as the issue heads towards Days Of Future Past.

BATMAN #50
(W) Tom King (A) David Finch, Joelle Jones, Mitch Gerads, Rafael Albuquerque, Neal Adams, Andy Kubert, Becky Cloonan, Ty Templeton, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Frank Miller, Lee Bermejo (A/CA) Mikel Janin
It’s the wedding you never thought you’d see! The Batrimony is real as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are set to tie the knot in a can’t-miss, extra-length milestone issue that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a comic book coupling for the ages. Superstar scribe Tom King officiates the sure-to-be-offbeat nuptials, joined by an all-star lineup of guest classic Bat-artists doffing their hats to the lucky couple in a series of pre-wedding flashback scenes sure to set the romantic mood.In Shops: Jul 04, 2018 SRP: $4.99

IMMORTAL HULK #2
(W) Al Ewing (A) Joe Bennett (CA) Alex Ross
A random small-town tragedy. A mystery illness that spreads with grief. A green glow on a lonely mountain. Three puzzle pieces that fit together to make a nightmare. And the only mind on Earth than can connect them up…belongs to the Immortal Hulk.
