Brave and The Bold Column Header - 1970

I found this header in an issue of The Brave and The Bold (#89, to be exact), topping a multi-part text feature the book ran looking back over its previous team-ups.

Normally, this would not be enough to warrant its own post, except for the fact that--besides it featuring Aquaman twice in a tiny space--by the sheer random luck of characters chosen, it might be the most useful header in comics blogging history!

I mean, take a look at this thing--not only can I use it here, it also has a shot of the JLA, which means I could use it for my
JLA Satellite blog.

But its usefulness isn't limited to me:

--it features Green Arrow, so Adam can use it over at
Dispatches From The Arrowcave

--it features the Martian Manhunter (R.I.P.), so Frank can use it over at The Idol-Head of Diabolu

--it features the Hawkman, so it might be of some use to Doug Zawisza, author of the upcoming TwoMorrows book The Hawkman Companion

--its about team-ups, so Rick can use it over at Mail-It To Team-Up

--and since its a comic book letterhead, Rick could use it again over at
Comic Book Letterheads!

You're welcome, internets!

Update: I just realized, looking at this piece over again, that the shot of the JLA at their meeting table has been altered.

Someone along the way converted The Flash, who was originally sitting opposite Aquaman, into The Atom. Not sure why, exactly, since both characters appeared in team-ups in B&B, but there you go.

Anyway, that now means this piece could be used for yet another blog--
The Tiny Titan, provided its owner Damian ever makes his way off the island.

Thanks for the plug for comic book letterheads. It is really the site I am most proud of as it is my attempt to keep alive a dying art form. I will post this soon there and at mail it to team up. I also plan to post it at On My Mind. Now if it only had Plastic Man and Millie the Model on it the letter head would be complete.

Rob, I think you've just discovered the nexus of all comics blog-dom!

I can? Then I will! Zoink!

It really is a shame about Damian. His was my second-favorite character-specific blog (after the Shrine, and not counting my own.) Hopefully he'll come back an expert archer instead of possessed by a diabolical alter ego at every eclipse!
