So, a couple minutes on Our Friend Google, and here's a hard working youngster with a decent selection of comics...

Is this one for real ?
Looks like a fake... but maybe i'm wrong \(shrug\)


I agree, the photo looks real but those comics look photo shopped. Why is the interior to the Blue Beetle so dang white? As are all the front comics relative to anything else in the picture.

And why are they all pretty key titles, not a single cartoon comic in the lot. Highly unlikely.
The clarity of the comics is a little too good although it is where the photo is focused so it would likely be crisper than the mags below (which I believe to be real).

Not trying to pick a fight and if you have the pics in hand then I'll take back my skepticism. But if you got them online, I'd be questionable as to the origin.

It looks real to me. Just a very clear image, whereas we're used to the comics in these shots being at least a little difficult to recognize. I don't know if I'd call Big 3 and Blue Beetle key titles.

Too cool!

Shoulda known that a noob search wouldn't pull up anything you hadn't seen.

By the bye, what do you think of my Jumbo 7 theory for the first pic in this thread?

Really hard to tell. I'm not really seeing the Jumbo Comics logo, and I'm having a hard time matching any of the panels to the Jumbo 7 cover panels. That part of the image is just too hard to make out.

I'm just saying that if a photo like this can be photo shopped this well, than anything can be.

whats great too about these pics is how silly they make all the movies where the crime is solved by enlarging a tiny spot in an old photo! Especially a photo of someone holding a newspaper...

You zoom in on these and you just get mush!

not really. The better pic was photoshoppable because it was a much higher quality, probably the from a publicity 8x10 still. But the top pic was the same photo printed in a magazine and greatly reduced in resolution.

Theres no way the top image was retouched to look like the bottom one! You cant add clarity back to that extent.
