Wow, did I miss you guys. I loves doing me some bloggin'.
Brainiac 5: C*ck Block.
Here's a classic comic ad for the CBS morning roster. See, back in the day, when there were just three networks and PBS, you relied heavily on what they gave you, so the annual line-up was quite the big deal.
Yeah, I know. Most of these shows were best forgotten (with the obvious exception of the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour) , but we had another season of Shazam! and, lame as it was, it was a live-action adaptation of a comic, which made it awesome by default.
But check out the text for Isis, an insufferably boring character (until last year when she told Black Adam to wipe out humanity during the Infinite Crisis) and a show that was about as entertaining as a 9th grade history class:
Isis fights evil in all its forms! Apparently, that includes evil in the form of a train. Not sure what the train did to deserve such a bitch-slapping, but I'm sure it had it coming.
So, my fellow readers from the 70's, did anyone mutilate enough comics to get this belt buckle back in 1976? I seem to recall most of those titles were cancelled before the respective issues were published, but if anyone actually pulled it off, I'd love to hear if the buckle was worth the effort.
My sister had one of these. I think we made one shrunken head out of it before we realized it was actually a crafts project, which meant it took patience and effort so we never tried it again.
For you young 'uns, the "head" was actually an apple (you provided) which was peeled (which you did) and dried (which you did) and then sewed teeth and eyes on (which you did). Then, you waited about two days before your mother chucked it in the trash in disgust.
Hey, we didn't have Game Boys in the 1970's, ok? Stuff like that constituted entertainment back in the day.
Glad to be back, everyone!
