I've pretty much given up on the notion that Steve Martin will ever be funny again.
World's Finest Comics certainly gives you a lot of story for your 12 cents, but you'd never know it by the covers. F'rexample:
Are things so slow in Metropolis and Gotham City that these guys have nothing better to do? I mean, really? There's no one in danger, no crimes being committed, no parties to attend or news to report? This is the best use of our time?
Know why this was the Golden Age? Here's why:
Because you could stand around in an office, smokin' a cigar, talk about "punishing" your female subordinates without the HR department getting on your case, and you could talk disparagingly about a woman as if she weren't even in the room! I'd settle for doing any one of those things without fear, much less all of them at the same time.
Every so often I discover a name of a current character has been recycled from a lesser-known character from long ago. Ladies and gents, I give you the original Bullseye:
Yeah, I know the spelling is a little different, but the name is still the same.
Even casual comic readers know the current Bullseye from Daredevil (movie or comics), Punisher or Thunderbolts. But as a foe of the Golden Age Green Arrow, he seems to borrow from another well-known character. See if you can guess which one:
DC didn't actually sue itself over this one, but they should have.
He wasn't nearly as entertaining as the Joker or the Bullseye we know today, which is why he disappeared into comic limbo, where he shall hopefully never be heard from again.
And by "something else is up," I'm referring to my wiener.
No, not really, but you can tell Roy is thinking it.
You know what I haven't seen in a while? Batman steering a boat using one of those old-fashioned captain's wheels:
Yeah! Like that!
Tune in tomorrow, when the World's Finest Heroes meet their greatest challenge ever:
Okay, seriously, there isn't anything else they could be doing?
See you tomorrow!
