I Broke His Fingers Like TWIGS! Friday!

Okay, I know that ads aren't everyone's favorites, but you've got to check these out.  Besides, I just finished reading 100 issues of Amazing Spider-Man straight, and I've got to take a break.

For the discerning ten year-old readers of the Golden Age Daredevil:

That's right.... "Drinking Companions."


Speaking of which:

It wasn't from the "Drinking Companions" ad, but it's not a big leap to think that one led to the other.

Yeah, nothing speaks from your heart like someone telling you how to speak from your heart.

Remember from The Simpsons? 

"Maybe this is just the beer talking, Marge, but you've got a butt that won't quit.  They've got these big chewy pretzels and shioasgfdhaset... FIVE DOLLARS? Get outta here..."

I don't know if it's still cool to love The Simpsons or not, but I do.  The writing is still brilliant.

See you Monday!

I'm thinking that when you add a cold liquid to the glass the sailor vanishes along with the "drinking companion's" clothes. It was probably overstock belonging to the novelty company that the publisher owned. Don't scoff, novelties pay better than comix.

The loveletter deal was something the publisher's nephew cooked up when he got drafted and realized he was the only guy in the barracks that could write. Besides, he needed to get some scratch to pay his poker debts.

I enjoy your blog so much that I check back everyday, even on weekends, to see if anyone has made anymore comments on your latest post. :-)

I'm a big fan of comments. Considering the traffic, you guys are a pretty quiet group, but I love to read what you're thinking!
