You're No Tin Ears! You Catch!

A little movie-going fun from Superman Family #166, courtesy of contributor Robert Gillis!:

So, Jimmy Olsen is that guy.  He's the one who assumes he's the only one who is capable of understanding what is going on in the movie, so he has to give you a play-by-play.  Is anyone surprised?  Certainly not me.

Great one, Robert!  Thanks again!

So, I'm looking at All-Flash Quarterly #25, and I was stopped in my tracks by the sheer awesomeness potential of the story.  Considering the greatness of the "Roy Revenge" saga, the rest of the series hasn't quite lived up to that potential.

But, my friends, we are about to be rewarded for my persistence.  I can feel it in my bones.


Yes, Ally Gates... a man who apparently cannot stop "jitterbugging."  And he doesn't seem to mind.

Okay, that hovered somewhere between jitterbugging and a grand mal seizure.  I mean, this is how you jitterbug (or so this lady would you believe):

And I don't see anyone throwing themselves on the floor and doing a handstand.  But Ally Gates calls it jitterbugging, so it's all good!  Everyone jitterbug!:

I'm not sure that forcing someone to jitterbug with you isn't some sort of sexual battery, but I'd have to actually read the laws of whatever State you find Keystone City in to be certain.

So, is that all there is to the story?  You know better than that!

Yep, take a rest, Joan!  Because tomorrow, we'll look further into "The Flash Cuts a Rug!"

Yes, that's the title of the story.  You can see why I'm not rushing through this.

See you tomorrow!

The jitterbugger's face looks oddly as if it was statted and pasted up in each panel. Probably it wasn't...I think the problem is the way his head is always seen at the same angle regardless of what his neck should be doing.

Yeah, they totally just used the same head. That is an awesome technique.

Another thing i like is how people used to try to come up with really weird things to have "hip" people say. "You're no tin ears!"

Kinda like most if not all of the early Bob Kane Batman stuff. Just copy and paste other peoples art.
