In Which the Weeper Uses Laughter as a Weapon Because COMICS!

As promised, we finish our look at Master Comics #30, with a return of The Weeper!

Using gas to make people laugh themselves to death?  Wow.... points for stealing the most recognizable gimmick in comic book history.

Yeah, they went full-blast on it.  Since this Weeper would turn up dead off-camera before too long, I would imagine the Joker found out about it over at DC Comics and took care of business.

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

But then I saw this:

I did not just see a dog get shot in a comic book.  That is seriously messed up.  Okay, I'm not a fan of the Weeper any more.

Now I'm a fan of THIS guy:

Yup.  There was a villain called The Ear.  It happened, and we let it happen.

You know, there's just no way to make that name sound menacing.  But I find it amusing, so it's awesome!

See you tomorrow!
