Brightest blackest dark white red orange green dead not dead Hawkman Aquaman GAHHHH! BRAIN! BRAIN FILLING UP WITH COMPLETELY POINTLESS INFO THEY'LL RETCON BY TUESDAY ANYWAY!

Bleah! Enough! With a few exceptions...at least right now, I don't care anymore. I really don't. After a couple of years now diving back into the superhero stuff, I remember now why I eventually moved away(except Vertigo, I guess) from superhero comics when I was younger: because after a while the continuity wastefully tangles your mind. If superhero comics stop being fun to read...why read 'em?

I just want to read some comics, not win a trivia contest. Good god, when did reading comics become such a draining chore?

So let's have a change of pace, and have a refreshing dive back into undergrounds and like that. Mmm, refreshing.
This is Robert Armstrong, from about 1980, and this is Mickey Rat(except one, the jazz dude is called "Dizzy Ratstein"). And yes, he did coin the term "couch potato," and like Crumb and "Keep On Truckin", I don't think he made a dime from it...

So basically, the idea with Mickey is...well, he's kind of a dick.





(c)1980 Robert Armstrong.

Word. I had no idea that the specs that Devo wore (at least part of the time) were "Foo Yong" specs.

I had no idea "couch potato" actually came from anywhere!

Well, they're both complete a-holes; I suppose that counts...
