[UGO] It’s Wednesday. You just plopped down twenty (or more) of your hard earned dollars for this week’s crop of comics. You get home, anxiously awaiting “me time.” You head for the toilet and open up this month’s latest issue of your favorite monthly. When all of the sudden…


That’s right, something happens to make you lose your $#!t. Whether it be a new costume that’s really an alien or the resurrection of a long dead character, comic books have a long history of turning convention on its ear. Sometimes these moments are great; sometimes, not so much. No matter what the results are, the reaction remains the same. What. The. F*ck?

This excellent piece starts with the sad story of Bill Finger and winds its way through some of the most bizarre moments in comics history. Well worth a peruse. Read the entire thing.
