We're With You to A Man, Red Rocket!

So, I was looking at the fifth issue of what I think is the second volume of Phantom Lady  and....

I'm sorry, I just couldn't get past this car:

This makes the Arrowcar look like a Bentley.

Egad, can we put vehicles into the Costume Hall of Shame (tm!)?  I'm thinking we can.

I'm not sure what was up with the wings.  Could this thing fly?  Well, we'll never know:

Those women drivers!

I keed!  I keed!

But that was a pretty short lifespan for an automobile.  The Spider-Mobile lasted longer than that thing!

But what really gave me the hoots was a backup feature called "The Red Rocket," not to be confused with the guy who ended up going by "Sir Rocket" that we've seen hanging out with the Queen of Diamonds in Pep Comics.  Here's the title character:

Well, judging by that outfit, I can only imagine what brought our hero to Mexico!  Egad!

And it's not like I'm looking for this sort of thing, but the man even gives pelvic thrusts when he's horseback riding:

Oh, Red Rocket... I wish I could quit you.

But that costume reminds me of something.

If I could just place it....

oh, wait.

Here we go:

See you tomorrow!

Note how in that panel the dialogue reads from right to left.

You're supposed to read it Anime-style. Red Rocket was ahead of its time :-)

Yes, but also read the Red Rockets text as it is written. "Talk!" (pause) "Stupid!" (pause) "Who put you up to this?"

I mean it's almost like he is listening to voices in his head or something.
