A Gorilla! UFF!

We're starting the week off with Startling Comics #38.  It's an awesome issue, because as we all know:

Gorilla's make everything awesome!

Here's a CMNS Moment... of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)

This has been a CMNS Moment... of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)

This panel caught my eye: 

Sound familiar?

Yup! Note that the movie came about 35 years after the comic.  Sure, you could say it's just a coinkydink, but you never know...

Here's a little something I found interesting from All-American Comics #2:

Whenever I see someone's name in a comic like that, I get the urge to run a search to see what I can find.  Well, sure enough, according to the Social Security Death Index, Frank lived in Michigan and passed away in 1981 at the respectable age of 84.  I liked that story, and it got me to thinking about how amazed he might be to know that someone would still be talking about it thirty years after his death.  We salute you, Frank Rusoti!

See?  I can talk about positive things, too.  They just aren't funny.  But I like to think this is a blog of general awesomeness, and his story certainly qualifies.

See you tomorrow!

I like your blog. I just like to discuss and debate things with people who have similar interests, so don't take any of my comments in the light of my thinking that I don't like your stuff. If I don't like something, I will come right out and say it.

Oh, I wasn't taking anything personally, Marv. And I wasn't thinking of anyone in particular when I wrote it. It's just that as I was putting the post together, I thought, "That last part isn't funny. Eh, who cares? It's awesome."

Yep. I didn't think that you meant me personally (or anyone in particular). I was just putting that out there. Awesome, but not funny, is just as good as funny in my book. :-)
