Explainin' the Housing Crisis thru Comics Friday!

From World's Finest v1 #29:


Happiness or the electric chair? This is the most badass version of CandyLand I've ever seen!

For our reader's overseas, allow me to explain the current housing crisis in America:


In 2006, Joel was seduced by a mortgage broker's creative financing options....


.... and by 2009, was wishing he had purchased within his means.

That's pretty much how it went down. Except I don't know of any homeowners going to the death row just for that. Yet.

Swing from a makeshift trapeze while he shoots at you. Wheeeeeee!

I can't help but giggle at the "easy money" comment, considering how many of those cheesy old ads in the back of old comic books were advertising exactly that.

Don't sell GRIT! It's the road to the electric chair!

And if Sally was smart, she'd get her fiance to dump the bright green coat. I mean, really!
