Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Admit It, It's Better Than Hockey!!

Not to disagree with Mr. Lodge...

But he's dead wrong. Because that just might be the greatest winter sport ever invented!

Seriously, someone call the International Olympic Committee...

From Archie's Joke Book Magazine (1971)

Manic Monday Bonus--Don't Deny Big Barda!!

It's not easy to be a new messiah--especially when your wife is feeling..ummm...needy?

Mister Miracle and company have just gotten back from a little adventure on Apokolips

While there, Scott was whisked away by some cosmic being who gave him a very trippy lecture on how to save the universe (long story short--Scott has to set himself up as a new messiah on Earth to free it from the New Genesis/Apokolips struggle).

Well, they get home, but Scott is still processing his mind blowing revelations...

This goes on for many panels...

Many, many panels...

That's an Apokolips mating ritual...

Lesson: when your wife is a god, don't neglect her needs!!

From Mister Miracle #24 (1978)

Manic Monday--Katy Paper Dolls!!

We haven't done any paper dolls for about some sporting wear for Katy Keene and her friend Gloria (click to embiggen to full fashion size!):

You're welcome!

The Musical Solution To Brexit?

Brit-Cit--The Mega-City that encompasses all of England--has declared this National Song Year!!

So, at the slightest provocation, everyone, human and droid, breaks into song and dance. Like when discussing how Brit-Cit can become a utopia of human and droid cooperation:

See? All problems solved!! Much better than messy referendums and newspaper editorials and collapsing governments, right?

Unfortunately, it turns out that song and dance can be used for evil, too, as the anti-droid Human League demonstrates:

Oh, dear...I much preferred it when the Human League would sing songs like this:

Still, we can dream of the whole of the United Kingdom united in song and dance. Perhaps someday...

From 2000 D #294 (1982)

Tales From The Quarter Bin--"Every Piece Will Say I Love You!"

Someone call Lin-Manuel Miranda...

...I've got an idea for his next musical!!

Seriously, "You could cut me up in a thousand pieces!/And every piece will say I love you!" is probably the best lyric from a musical that's never actually been in a musical...

FYI, this is based upon a book by David Wilkerson detailing his work ministering to youth gangs in 1960s New York City. It was also made into a movie starring Pat Boone. The comic adaptation is from 1972. No, I have no idea what the girl is looking at.

Friday Night Fights--Male Chauvanist Pig Style!!

It starts with a kick, but ends with a pinch in this weeks Friday Night Fights.

The Enchantress has is bored, so she imbues a mortal woman with the power of The Valkyrie so she can kick Hulk's ass. And so she does...

Yup. It's that easy to beat the Hulk, apparently...

Spacebooger is confused by the feminist agenda in this story...

Hulk goes down hard in Incredible Hulk #142 (1971), by Roy Thomas, Herb Trimpe and John Severin

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? I have no earthly idea. Just go and vote!!

This Would Never Happen If Jarvis Were In Charge!

The Hulk is at a fancy soiree (don't ask), and he's about to learn the hard way:

If you want to get good service in cafe society, you have to be aggressive!!

From Incredible Hulk #142 (1971)

Your Tax Dollars At Work--Will Eisner Wants You To Clean And Lube Your Rifle!!

The M16A1 Operations And Preventative Maintenance Manual is from 1969

Paul Revere Rode A Wooley Mammoth?!?

Get ready for a fierce defense against an invasion...and some a lot of gratuitous ethnic stereotyping!

With the help of Mr. Mind and his "floating island," the Nazis are about to take Scotland!

Of course, Billy escapes--seriously, I could make a bundle going back in time to Golden Age Fawcett City and selling tear-proof gags--but the smart worm has a plan to stop Captain Marvel:


Not so fast, Mind!

But while he's distracted, the island has landed...and the Panzer invasion of Scotland has begun!!

Well, what can be done?

Dude, if you need him, maybe you shouldn't call him ugly...

I'm, pretty sure my history teachers never told us about this...

And of course, well, it's time to continue the calumny that the Scottish are cheap:

Oh, it's all in good fun--they're our allies!

FACT: A woolly mammoth can totally throw and smash a Nazi tank.

By the way, did we mention that the Scots are cheap?


From Captain Marvel Adventures #35 (1944)
