I Said "Red!" You Filthy Whore! Thursday!

The Daredevil story was goofy enough to be worth your dime, but the back-up tales of Daredevil #18 had some great moments as well:


Perhaps not "great" so much as "disturbing, but in a funny way."


I guess the Claw himself was busy. I appreciate the disclaimer that this is "NOT a true story," because I was about to write a thesis on the whole event.

I haven't dug into the Ghost just yet, but he has only one superpower I can see: His cape disappears for no reason from one panel to the next:


Did you see it? He'll do it again:


I'm not sure why that cape keeps disappearing. It's not like the Ghost has a complicated outfit there. Maybe it's on purpose, because he's the Ghost and all that. Spooky! Whooooooooooo!


They spent a whole page on that gag. A whole freakin' page. That is tragic and awesome all at once.

I love goofy comics.

See you tomorrow!

Domestic abuse is hilarious.

Justin - They've made it a running gag in the "Andy Capp" comic strip for decades. I think domestic ASSAULT is considered hilarious as long as it's a case of mutual combat.

So wait... we dropped angel dust on the nazis?

I think we DID actually do that for real, yes.

I think we should return to those days of yesteryear when everybody was split into "imp" and "brute" categories.
