David Bowie and comics are a perfect fit. The man who sang that we’ve “got to make way for the homo-superior” has appeared in his own Marvel comic (the Labyrinth adaptation written by Sid Jacobson and illustrated by none other than John Buscema) and his music is featured on the soundtrack to Guardians of the […]
