The Third Annual Great Moments in Irish Super-Heroics Special

Top o’ the evenin’ to ye! Today, for those of you who missed the rivers of Jameson flowing like the mighty Mississip’ through the streets of the land, was St. Patrick’s Day, where we all pause to celebrate the time that Shamrock and the Guardians of the Galaxy drove the Serpent Society from the shores of the Emerald Isle!

Or at least, I’m pretty sure that’s how it went. But regardless, it’s also the one day of the year when we celebrate our Irish heritage, real or imagined. And since there’s nothing that we like better here on the ISB than a rousing holiday tradition, we set aside St. Pat’s to salute the great Irish comic book characters!

Characters like…



StormWatch’s Hellstrike!



Future lawman Judge Joyce!



Jesse Custer’s vampire pal Cassidy!



Gotham City’s greatest hitman, Tommy Monaghan!

And of course…



X-Factor’s own Siryn!


Great characters all! Now, I was gonna ask you to raise your glasses in toast, but uh… it looks like they’re already on top of that one.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody!


Special thanks to Kevin and Ken for helping out with this one.
