A Pleasure, M'sieu Fancypants!

I'm thumbing through a copy of Action Comics #106.  It's interesting that after so many years of publication, Superman still only got one story in the magazine that introduced him to the world.  Congo Bill, now known to comic readers as the guy whose brain is trapped in the body of a giant golden gorilla and simply goes by "Bill," took up just as much real estate in Action Comics for quite some time:

It was worth reading this story for no other reason than the line, "A pleasure, M'sieu Fancy Pants!"

Here's something that I think qualifies as a trope, but I hardly ever actually see it in comics:

It's 1646, you say?  But that was 200 hundred years ago!

What's that?  I was sleeping?

It was only a dream!  Or WAS it?

I just don't see that nearly as often as you might think.

Hey it's time for a CMNS Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)

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

And finally....

It was upon hearing the child's insipid comment that Captain Tootsie began to wonder if he should associate more with people his own age.

See you tomorrow!
