52, Week 18: The Marvel Age of Magic

- Panels from 52, Week #18 (Sept 6 2006)

Not to be snarky, but I see that in the concept of the Tenth Age of Magic that the DC of 2006 has finally caught up with Steve Ditko's early-1960's Marvel output.

Ok, a little snarky. This is obviously a hat tip to the master, Steve Ditko and his surreal dimensional landscapes. I'm not going to say DC is recycling old Marvel concepts until I see Dr. Fate throwing spells using the American Sign Language I Love You gesture.

That said, since being married to a person who is deaf, it's been 20 years since I could read anything featuring Doctor Strange without thinking that he's throwing mystic love-blast affirmations of affection everytime he fights a demonic entity.

I sure am glad my wife doesn't read this.
