Dear Ones, at long last, Snatcher Bodies!, the graphic novel penned by Yours Truly and fabulously drawn by Gabe Ostley is now available in hard copy as a 70 page graphic novel. Check it out! It's a lighthearted look at the end of the world and.... well, it still makes me laugh when I read it.
Meanwhile, here's an unintentionally sad image if ever there was one:
Considering Archie would end up running everyone out of Pep Comics, the Shield and the Hangman are really being played for suckers there. Don't be fooled by his boyish charm, fellas! Archie is going to take that book and kick your keisters to Comic Book Oblivion!
You know, if you find yourself asking that question to a bunch of pre-teen boys, you should probably decline on their behalf.
Let's take a look at the Fighting Yank from Startling Comics #34. I've mentioned before how the Yank's ancestor comes around in ever story and bails the Yank out of whatever mess he gets himself into, eliminating any real concern for the protagonist's welfare and cutting any excitement potential down to virtually zero.
But I noticed that it didn't happen (A), when the Yank gets in a car accident and faceplants into a bridge:
and (B), when the Yank gets run over by a tank:
So, I think I've figured out the system here: The Yank's ancestor will come to his rescue and save him from any real harm unless said harm is hilarious to look at, in which case the ancestor will simply watch it happen off camera and return when he can appear on the scene without bursting out in laughter.
See you tomorrow!
