Whoa! What a work day! Here's a helpful contribution from reader Matthew Holsman:
Well, good thing I hung in there. I think I'll take a well-deserved break. The odds of that happening again are....
.... oh, sh!t.
You do have to give the Flash editors credit, though. To recycle a plot device is one thing, but to plaster it on the covers within two years of one another in the same title takes stones the size of cantaloupes.
Here's another one from Matthew. I can't believe I've never heard of the Gay Ghost:
You know, even if you take the "other" meaning of "Gay" out of the equation, that is still not exactly the most awe-inspring, fear-inducing super-hero name one could choose.
Good stuff, Matthew! Thanks!
Meanwhile, Batman was just getting lazy by the time his 50th issue rolled around:
Of course, the Joker has been known to kill entire roomfuls of police officers before breakfast, but I'm sure Batman had a tee time he just couldn't interrupt. Phoning it in, Batman? Really?
See you tomorrow!
