Manic Monday Triple Overtime--This Should Help Your Case Of The Mondays!!

Well, an evil archeologist has discovered magic paint from Atlantis. He's used it to paint magic paintings, whose figures come to life and wreak havoc when struck by moonlight!! He's painted some pictures, and sent them to all of his enemies. GOLDEN AGE!!

Anyway, in their usual style, the Justice Society of America has split up, and Johnny Thunder has been given the task of fetching the painting that's been sent to a sea captain!!

There's only one flaw in the plan--Johnny is an idiot.



So, getting himself thrown in the brig as a danger to himself and others...better than the usual outcome of a Johnny Thunder story!!

Still, with Johnny out of the way, we can now enjoy this bit of heaven:

COWBOY MERMEN RIDING SEAHORSES RUNNING AMOK ON A CRUISE SHIP!!

Thank you, Golden Age.

From All-Star Comics #28 (1946)

This is just... brilliant in its insanity.

There was this story I remember, where Brain-Wave, like a poor man's Joker, used some McGuffin to drive the Justice Society horrifically insane...!

...only since Johnny is already, er, Johnny, it made both him and his genie dangerously lucid instead. Poor Brain-Wave never knew what hit him.
