You Missed the Incredible NFL Man Wednesday!

Yes, it's SuperPro! The man who talks in logos:


Now what do you supposed that sounded like when he said it? Did he say "NFL SuperPro" or did he go with "SupNFLerPro"? Because if he said it like it read, it would be the latter.

SuperPro! He's here to punt some skulls!


Didn't know "punt!" was a sound effect, did you? Well, now you know.


That's right! You can't dodge justice, because justice has a very wide.... girth. When you see justice coming your way down an aisle at the grocery store, you might as well just turn your cart around and go the other way, because NO ONE CAN DODGE JUSTICE!


I guess someone was feeling like the NFL wasn't being whored out enough in this comic, so some people called him "NFL Man." It's stupid, but not much more stupid than "SuperPro."

Egad, this is terrible. It makes me think I was too hard on U.S.1 and Team America.

Believe it or not, the letters column was full of accolades as to how wonderful a series this was. I have no proof of this, but I think the editors made them up.

See you tomorrow!

If he were another superhero without an NFL license, and the stories/plot/characterization were exactly the same, except we removed everything related to football, would this series be worth reading?

Is that pronounced "N-F-L Man" or "NiffleMan"? ;-)

Is this blog arc going to end soon?

By the end of the week, Whalehead, we will have seen the last of NFL SuperPro! No tears, now! No tears! We must all be strong....

WHOAH, that hair is blue. That's very blue. Having problems with the blueness. Has he deliberately gone with that colour, or is it so black, it's blue?

Duy, I have a feeling it would depend on what they would replace great stuff like "Punt" with. After all, if you read the definition of "Punt" on Wikipedia, the drawing is a very accurate depiction of the move.

If I'm not careful, I'm going to start enjoying this comic.....
