Well, I'm bored, and I wouldn't mind posting questions here once in awhile to test my fellow comic viners.

How this works.

This is pretty simple. I'll ask a question, most of the time comic book, video game, movie, or book related. However, I will on occasion ask other quesionts, it's my thread, I'll do what I want! :P And you try to answer it. I'll keep tallies of how many people have guessed a correct answer, and how many they have answered correctly. I understand you all have google, and will attempt to google the answers on occasion. I can't stop that. However, I'll try to keep these hard to google.

The First Question

What comic is this from?

Bonus: The original lead artist to this comic went on to form a very famous music project with someone. Who is this artist, and what project did they start?

Thanks for reading,

The Next Question

Many characters had a hard time remembering this characters name. As a result he was called many other names, such as "Black Buck", "Big Brother", and of course "Big Black". Who is this character, and what was his original hero name that lead to all the confusion?

Ah, if you tag me in the answer then I can post more quickly

The Next Question

Manga Question: Released around June 2003, this was a one shot Halloween based story that became very popular in Japan. So popular that the author was contracted to write more one shot stories related to the one previously written. After writing two more one shot stories, he then turned around to create an entire Halloween themed series around those stories, featuring the main characters of each story as the main characters of the new series. It became so popular that he still continues to write not only for the original series, but for a new sub series off of it as well, and it was turned into an extremely popular anime. What manga/anime am I referring to?

@Yai_Inn:

I like the list!

Other Characters:

"Jack" - The Joker's nickname

Jack Ryder

Jack the Bartender (Technically Jack Kirby, but I thought I'd include him anyway)

Black Jack (Archie Comics)

And more than a few more who have "Jack" in their real name.

Thank you btw.
