Time for another cracktastic Fantomah: Mystery Woman of the Jungle adventure by Fletcher Hanks (as Barclay Flagg). This story is from Jungle Comics #6 (Fiction House, June 1940), which is in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

Trigger warning for the racist depiction of African indigenous people.

Back cover of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers #1

In 1971, the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers got their own, self-titled series, published by Gilbert Shelton's own Rip Off Press. This allowed the trio more space to score dope, get high, avoid having to (ugh) work, and evade the authorities, particularly their nemesis, bumbling Drug Enforcement Agency inspector Norbert the Nark (sic).

In the spring of 1968, writer/artist Gilbert Shelton, already somewhat known in college humour and underground comix circles for his Superman parody Wonder Wart-Hog, self-published a 28-page one-shot, Feds 'n' Heads Comics. Along with that porcine hero, the comic featured a variety of whimsical strips about hippies, freaks and above all drugs--and introduced the trio that would become Shelton's most famous creation: The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.

Was cleaning up a closet last weekend and came upon my cache of original Teen Titans floppies. Here's a little treat from 1972, "Through These Doors Pass the Bravest Titans of Them All," or as I like to think of it, "That time Donna shaved her head and crossdressed for justice!" I've got six pages of an 18-page story, and therefore am cutting the Mal sequence down to a mere preview image.

That's Mal having a flashback to a childhood beat-down, to explain his heretofore unheard-of fear of wide open spaces, which he must overcome in order to repair a lunar landing guidance module.

Say what, now? )

So there you go - not bad for an ish where nobody even makes it into costume!

...There was "Action Comics Weekly", DC's first attempt at a weekly comic book. It was an anthology comic somewhat on the model of 2000 AD, several continuing stories each week, with seven page chapters (and a two-page Sunday comics spread for Superman.) There were several interesting projects done during this run--I especially liked the new Secret Six they had. Sadly, sales and logistics reasons meant that the experiment lasted less than a year.



Love that Kirby art, though I think this might have been an inventory piece DC had lying around. 2 1/3 pages from each of the seven-page storiesin Action Comics Weekly #638 (2/7/89), one double-page spread, and a special treat!

Remember relevance? )

Because a few people in the Rise of Arsenal Wins Award thread said they hadn't read any/much of RoA, and because the link in the earlier post has lots of macro-manips talking about dead cats, I thought I should link to the scene being referenced. Coulda sworn it was posted here, but if so I couldn't find it through the tags. (If someone can find it, I'll gladly take this post down.)

So, here are 2 pages from Rise of Arsenal #3. Behold the gritty realism of its depiction of drug abuse!

Both cut from double-page spreads. I'll try to fill in the blanks. )

The issue ends with Roy strapped to a table to detox cold turkey, talking with Zombie!Lian, and slowly going totally bugfuck insane in the membrane.

There comes a time in every title's life where the supporting characters must take center-stage and play the largest role in a story-arc's major plot while the star runs around around looking silly and ineffectual.

What with the Passover/Easter season upon us, you might be seeing more Chick Publications conversion tracts than usual.
I highly doubt that anybody will be out passing this particular one around (although somebody probably should).
