And Yes, One of the Companions Three was Named, "Nifty."

We're not quite finished with Master Comics #22, my lovelies!  Check out some Fun with Out of Context Dialogue (tm!) from the Minute-Man story!


And if you could get your minds out of the gutter for a second, check out the Hawk!:

Well, he's got a pretty unnerving look for him, I'll give him that.

But check this out:

Talons?  Hawks have talons.  That makes perfect sense.

But then:

Why does a guy called "The Hawk" have wings like a bat?  I'm guessing they were afraid someone was going to scream copyright infringement... that someone being DC/National, who owns the Hawkman character and was busy suing everyone they could out of existence.

Moving on to the Companions Three:

First, could they have picked a less masculine name for their little group?  This is what you call a group of guys who travel around rating bed and breakfast establishments on Yelp.  And the shirts with the names on them are not helping their image one bit.

Anyway, they encounter this woman:

I'm not an artist by even the most charitable of definitions, but why is Sue Belle drawn as an eight-foot woman here?

That's not where her eyes are, Don.  Granted, you have to look way up to see them, but don't worry: She'll be normal-sized in a page or two.

And then there was this:

Yeah, that'll go over really well with Dad.  My dad would have yelled at me for (a) still reading comics and (b) writing on his memo pad.  My dad was not a patient man.

See you tomorrow!

Also, why does a hawk guy have bat ears, whiskers and fangs? Could it be they were going to call him Batman then found out there was already an obscure character by that name? "Just call him da Hawk, da kids'll never notice!"

Yeah, the more I look at it the more I see that he was basically Man-Bat.

This is a very interesting discovery. He actually looks more like a bat than Batman does.

Yeah, that last panel might've worked better as a Mechanix Illustrated ad.
