      For those not in the know, Sergio Aragones is the famous cartoon artist best known for his work in Mad Magazine (he is the guy that does all of those funny little drawings in the margins). He is also well known for his popular comic book, Groo. Sergio Aragones Destroys DC, however, is Sergio’s introduction to the

      world of DC superheroes, and an excellent introduction it is.

      As always it is drawn in Sergio’s characteristic style, as well as his excellent sense of humor. One by one Aragones pokes fun at every classic hero in the DC lineup, from Superman to the Martian Manhunter, while also creating a great riff on the “comic crossover” stories ...


      • that are so famous these days (DC started it all with their Crisis on Infinite Earths back in the 80’s). In classic style Aragones also includes himself in the story, as if he were creating the story at the same time we, the readers, are reading it. It is all very humorous, and Aragones really goes all
        out with his final villain, drawn from DC Comics history.

        The tome is a little bit dated, having been originally written and drawn back in the mid 90’s, however most of the humor is timeless and even the jokes about 90’s comics are still somewhat pertinent to the comics of today. This is a real treat for any comic book fan.
