Cleaning Up Some Odds and Ends Tuesday!

I really haven't properly mentioned that while Gabe and I are working on Hero Action Persons, we've also been putting out an online comic just for fun.  You see, Gabe drew this thing years ago, but he wasn't happy with his dialog, so he foolishly suggested I once again ruin his excellent inks with my terrible scripts.  But, there you go.  He's sending it to me one page at a time, so I'm writing things without knowing what the future holds.  It should be fun.

So, check it out 'chere.  We'll be posting a new page every Wednesday!

So, yesterday I was talking about the disturbing situation that arises when one gets all romantic and what-not with someone who is the exact duplicate of one's cousin.  I asked that we not see it again.  So naturally, long-time reader MarvelX42 ignored my wishes thusly:

Yup.  Guess who it really is. 

It gets worse.  Here's a little blurb from Action Comics #289:

I'm sorry, but some things are better left unsaid.  If you're attracted to someone, especially if that person is a blood relative, you really should keep that under your figurative hat.

And yes, I know some countries think this is perfectly okay.  This is all in fun, folks!

See you tomorrow!

Not just "first cousins" (which makes a certain amount of genetic sense) but any cousins?
Surprising, since this was a planet whose Science Council thought the planet's imminent destruction was just a couple of worldquakes, I would've thought marrying your first cousin, or even your sibling, was standard practice! ;-)

Kara's expression in the last panel perfectly conveys everyone's feelings on this topic.

she's just thinking: "wait, WHAT?! That is so disturbing I don't even know what to say!!"

I've had that second panel framed on my wall for years.

Actually, I hate to skeeve everyone out, but it's perfectly legal to marry your 1st cousin in most states right here in the US. Here's a state-by-state breakdown:
