Beware the Human Fart Wednesday!

Oh, Burn Notice, come back to me. I don't know if I can wait until you return in the winter.

But I'll do my best to fill in the time. Cue the Jovian Attack Squid!

From LSH v1 #260. Not to be confused with the Jovian Defense Squid or Jovian Special Team Squid.

.... or the Bon Jovian Attack Squid.

Yeah, I know... but how much are you paying to read this?

That's what I thought.


Too much action for you already, Legion-Lover? Well, I beseech you to look away from Superboy & LSH v1 #253! Save yourself from the heart-stopping action that is.....

Colossal Boy versus.... the Human Fart?

I'm sure he was called something else, but you and I both know that's what it looks like.


Need more Legion action? How about subscribing?

Wow, do they look bored in that picture. Which, to be fair, was the look the average Legion fan had on his face during this time period. Colossal Boy looks like he's still recovering from the schooling he got from the Human Fart.

But, wow.... guys, could you try to generate just a little enthusiasm? We're trying to sell comics here!

And for those of you wondering: "Fart" is in the blogger dictionary.

See you tomorrow!

I've wondered why you didn't have a PayPal link up here like so many bloggers. But now I know, it's so we can't hold you up to our ridiculously high standards!

"One of those people is trying to get us killed!"
"Could it be the one saying 'come to the circus and die'?"

Adam Barnett said...

Y'know, allergy.... I'm not slamming on folks that do that, but I just don't feel right about it. This is something I enjoy a great deal and it's just as fun for me that people read it and get a chuckle out of it, so it seems like a fair trade. Asking for donations just isn't something I think blogging is all about.

I agreed to put the Amazon links up because it doesn't cost anyone extra and they're actually buying something they want. Other than that, I appreciate you guys reading it as much as y'all seem to like checking it out every day, so your patronage is payment enough.

Unless you want to buy something through Amazon. In which case, forget everything I just said and click those links :-)

and "come to the circus and die" is the phrase used by Ringling Bros. back in the 80's, replacing "The Greatest Show on Earth" as their trademark before they noticed a 100% drop in sales. It was the "New Coke" thing all over again.

"I've been letting this CRISIS stuff get me down! After all - It's not the end of the world, is it?"

...meanwhile, in an abandoned warehouse across town, Marv Wolfman cackles and rubs his hands together with glee and says, "Just wait! You'll see! You'll ALL see!"

You know, explosive flatulence would make for a pretty awesome super power. I think you'd have to go for being a supervillain however as it is also something of a tough sell to the populace.

De said...

I don't know, Sally. There was the Spleen (played by Paul Reubens) from the Mystery Men movie several years ago. He could aim his farts from across a room and was a hero.

Though you might be right about it being a tough sell. That movie didn't do very well in theaters at the time despite it being 18 shades of awesome.

Adam Barnett said...

Loved Mystery Men. Then again, I loved the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, so it could be argued that I'm an easy sale....

Human fart.

yes my humour is low.
But I'd still like to see a whole comic dedicated to some long drawn out fight between a silent-but-deadly and Colossal Boy. ONE PAGE IS NOT ENOUGH!

Who ever escaped . . . A CLOUD? Seems pretty easy to me. Clouds don't, in my experience, move as quickly as airplanes or sometimes even automobiles: I've "escaped" 'em in both vehicles. And a Legionnaire with a flight ring can travel pretty darn fast.
