Happy Monday! Today's panels come from a couple of issues of the Golden Age Blue Beetle, but I can't swear as to which ones. Let's just enjoy the mystery!
What's the Blue Beetle up to?
And after a trial by a jury of his peers, the Blue Beetle was court-ordered not to be within 2000 feet of a playground, school or day care center.
Well.... not really, although that would have been hilarious. The editors had this brilliant idea that kids might be more inclined to purchase comics if there was a chance they might actually appear in them. So, if you sent your pertinents and whatnots to them, there was a (I imagine very slight) chance you might get to star in an adventure with the Blue Beetle.
The funny thing is, there was really no explanation as to why the Blue Beetle was yawning. I think he was simply bored with the prospect of babysitting a couple of fans.
And, things went as you might imagine. The kids were more of a distraction for our hero, who probably could have resolved things in five panels had he not spent all his time rescuing... well, everyone on his team.
But there was this:
Okay. You get points for tickling an elephant with a tree.
And now, the premiere of Lackadaisical Warden (tm!):
He's vested in his pension and has already picked out his retirement condo in Florida. He cares not whether the convicted prisoners are inside the prison walls or not. He's Lackadaisical Warden (tm!)!
See you tomorrow!
