Something Awful: Fashion SWAT: Comics SWAT

Why is it I had never stumbled on Something Awful before? Huh.

Dr. Thorpe: There are certain nerds that complain that comics aren’t taken seriously enough as an art form. In this edition of Fashion SWAT, we’re going to show you why those people are idiots.

Zack: One of our readers suggested that we apply our discerning sense of style to the outlandish costumes of various super heroes and villains. Thanks for the idea, Johnathan! This issue we’re going to “Biff!” and “Pow!” our way through more than a dozen of the most ridiculous hero costumes you have ever seen.

Of course they picked mostly comics from the 80’s and Rob Liefeld, which is kind of making it easy. When you’re done with this go read the other Fashion SWAT stuff. Or waste an day on the whole site. Its all great.

  1. Nah, it’s just so rare. Imagine, the internet is so large that what some might consider to be among the most well-known sites goes unknown by so many people for such a long time. It makes me wonder if you or someone else doesn’t maybe consider some other site a staple that everyone knows, of which I’ve never heard.

    Buzzwords like darknet or the long tail could fit in here… basically the idea that the ’net is so large that noone can have a comprehensive view of all of it. I find it fascinating to encounter evidence of that and to think of the implications all this might have.
