Repost from the old comm, but it fits the theme.

I confess, I'm a sucker for nearly any variation on the "a girl/boy and her/his dog" story, so this comic was right up my alley.

Short version: She is a wannabe actress. Her dog is possessed by an alien. And this is the kind of cartoony crack that transpires when the dog of a wannabe actress is possessed by an alien.

Both from E-MAN, but two different periods of the book.

Happy Positive Comics Week! Today, I thought I'd share some scans from the brilliant Stanley and his Monster four-issue-miniseries from 1994, written and drawn by our old friend Phil Foglio.

Stanley and his Monster was originally a comic from the mid-1960s, not totally unlike a very early Calvin and Hobbes (though whether Bill Watterson ever read the comic or if the similarities are just a coincidence, I have no idea), in which an over-imaginative young boy -- the titular Stanley -- meets and befriends a big, shaggy (and pink!) monster. He keeps the monster as a "secret pet," and they get into all sorts of weird and wacky misadventures.



Foglio's revamp sets the story in the DC/Vertigo universe, and the monster is now revealed to be a demon who was kicked out of Hell for being too nice. Hey, it could happen.

For argument reference! 1 and half pages from Spider-man: The Lost Years 0, and 1 page from Spider-man: the Lost Years 1.

Spider-man's clone, Ben Reilly, allows a man to buy him a beer.

Here's a re-post of a Silver Surfer page I put on the older board. I'm just putting it here so I can use a "Secret Invasion" joke.

The Silver Surfer and Super-Skrull are going to use Zenn-La machinery to give shape-shifting back to the Skrulls through Empress S'ybll. What could possibly go wrong?

"Now, you have to promise you won't try to conquer Zenn-La after we help you."
"Oh, we won't. Helovesyou."
"What?"
"Nothing."

Full page after the cut. )
