365 Days of Defiance, Day 96: You can tell it's an evil universe because Diana's costume is black, shiny, and skintight

So, here's Diana, Princess of the Amazons, searching for a powerful ally on an Earth where Evil Superman and Criminal Batman have taken over the world! (Ooooooh!)

Panels from Superman/Batman #14 (January 2005), script by Jeph Loeb, pencils by Carlos Pacheco, inks by Jesus Merino, colors by Laura Martin, letters by Richard Starkings

She needs a powerful to battle Sinister Superman and Bad Batman. So who does she pick? Green Lantern? Aquaman? Scribby? Captain Morgan?

Nope. Uncle Sam. To be fair to Diana, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Flash and all the rest have been killed, so she couldn't go for them. But Diana: Detective Chimp!

365 Days of Defiance, Day 94: When Captain America wields his mighty pencil

Hey good people! I'm trying to catch up on this feature, so in the meantime, would it hurt you to do some work on it? No, it would not.

So get out your pen or pencils or crayon or El Marko and help Cap and Bucky fight the Nazi menace! Can you help Captain America save Bucky?
