If You're Lucky, Your Neck Will Snap...

Let's start the new month and end the week with a few random smatterings, starting with a leftover from Action Comics #184!


I'm not sure why the kid in the bottom right corner is crying, but I'm a little concerned that it may have something to do with the inappropriately-shirtless man on the left.


Is it just me, or does it look like Green Lantern is showing the guy the proper way to smack Doiby with a gun?  "No, you swing it down in a wide, smooth arch for maximum cranial damage.  Don't bend your elbow!"

SPOILER ALERT!


Keep in mind this is on the inside of the front cover, before the story even began.  Thanks a load for spoiling the surprise, Joe!

Meanwhile, the Hangman proves to be the worst guest ever:





Wow.  Um... thanks for reading, kids!  Next issue, I guess we'll describe in detail other unpleasant, lingering ways of dying.  Start saving your pennies now!

See you Monday!

And maybe, just maybe the rope will snap and you will fall into a river and be washed downstream and then run, run for your life and down a path into the waiting arms of a beautiful woman.....

Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, right? I still haven't read it,but it's one of the stories that many, perhaps most people have heard of.

"EVERYONE'S CHEERING THE HANGMAN EXCEPT NAZIS AND JAPS!" remains the all-time best comic-cover strapline.
