Melody Lane Thursday!

We're reaching the end of the Golden Age All-Star Comics run, and it ain't pretty.

Here's a few barely noteworthy tidbits from All-Star Comics #51!:

We've got to bzzzz bzzzz bzzzz? What, are we speaking in bee language now? I could barely handle it when Hawkman taught all the JSA people to talk to birds like they were Dr. Freakin' Doolittle, who the heck knew bee language?

I know, I know.... but it's not funny if you just look at it as lazy writing. If you imagine Alan literally saying "bzzzzz bzzzzz bzzzzz," it's loads more entertaining. Trust me on that one.

Hey, ten year old boys! Here's a cool new comic for ya!

Yeah, we know you're getting bored with super-heroes, so here's Melody Lane!

Now, I tried to see if Melody Lane was a real person, and all I found was a performer in Branson and a writer of erotic fiction. If they are one and the same, I will be extremely amused.... possibly to the point of hospitalization.

That Jimmy Wakely comic is looking pretty good to me right now.

Hey, kids! It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!)

Comics rule.

See you tomorrow!

Maybe Alan really is just saying bzzzz bzzzz bzzzz. That would explain the look on Hawkman's face.

I imagine that Alan got a great deal of quiet enjoyment out of messing with Hawkman.
